Wrecking Crew

Game Review

This strategy game is fun and challenging. The idea is to control Mario and demolish every item on the screen to get points. Sound easy? Well it is in the early stages, but later, you must think before you act. Sometimes you need to climb a ladder before you destroy it, or else you will miss items on higher levels and have to restart the level. There's also the fact that there are monsters following you around and those fireballs from Mario Bros. Also, there is the foreman, Spike who gets in the way, especially in the bonus round. In this bonus round, a coin has been hidden under an item. You must demolish the right item and find the coin before Spike does.

Appropriate colours have been used, however, like many early NES/Famicom games, the background is plain black. The music is pretty good, better than some other games of this time. The music in the bonus round is especially funky. Simple sounds have been used, typical of early games, but suitable. You'll probably get a lot of enjoyment out of this game, but with not much variation in the levels (which keep going on and on) you'd get bored after a while.

Graphics 89% Suitable enough, with enough colours, apart from the plain black background.
Sound 88% Sounds are simple yet suitable.
Music 96% Better music than some games. Quite funky too.
Playability 91% You'll get quite a bit of fun out of this game at first.
Lastability 79% The little variation in levels may get boring after a while.
Difficulty 88% The game is rather challenging in later levels, but nothing too hard.
Overall 88% An interesting and original game with reasonable difficulty and good enough music and graphics to keep you playing.
