A very simple yet addictive game. Three levels repeat: the barrel avoiding/ ladder climbing level - your elevator jumping/fire avoiding/evil spring level - and the multi-tiered ladder/fire avoiding/support jumping level. Other than the speed, it never changes. It must be good if they made a documentary about it (arcade granted, but still).

Feels Old, But Can Still Be Fun

Not much to this game, 3 levels that repeat. You can save the princess several times by the time your done. That wasn't the task back in the 80's though, it was getting the high score and that's where this game can get addictive.

Jumping barrels gets you extra points, it's often that's where you die, too. For some reason the NES version doesn't have 1 level the arcade has and that's sad. With that said, this game is still fun but it didn't age well.
