What went wrong here? Although I’ve never really liked Strider all that much, it isn’t a bad game. It’s also quite different to most platformers, as you can climb walls, hang from platforms, and that sort of thing.
Only, you can’t. The NES version of Strider, it seems, does away with everything that is Strider and removes it. So now, it’s just a generic crap platformer. Rubbish.
