Wario's Woods (Brand New, Factory Sealed)

$89.99

gm0281 - Developed by Intelligent Systems Co., Ltd., and Published by Nintendo of America Inc., "Wario's Woods" was released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in December of 1994. Wario's Woods is an excellent and classiv little gem released at the end of NES's lifespan. Gameplay is quite compelling in this hybrid puzzler/platformer, utilizing Toad as the protagonist. Birdo appears for the first time as an ally, not an enemy. The objective of Wario's Woods is to clear the playing field of monsters of varying colors by using bombs of matching color, which are dropped into the field from the top of the screen. In order to do so, the monsters and bombs must be rearranged by the player such that three or more objects of the same color are placed adjacent to one another in horizontal, vertical, or diagonal rows, with at least one object being a bomb (such rows are called a "match"). For example, a match may consist of two red monsters and one red bomb, but may also consist of two red bombs and one red monster. When the play field is cleared of all the monsters, the player progresses to the next round, where the initial number of monsters increases. There are different monster types that can only be destroyed in specific ways, such as requiring two matches in quick succession or being placed into a diagonal match.

Unlike other action puzzle games such as Tetris or Puzzle League where the player directly manipulates the game pieces, either as they fall or via a cursor, the player directly controls the character Toad, who moves around inside the playing field atop the fallen objects. Toad can pick up individual objects or lift entire stacks and place them elsewhere in the playing field, but is unable to manipulate objects he cannot immediately reach. However, Toad can perform a variety of additional tricks, such as kicking objects across the play field and scurrying up the sides of stacks to retrieve specific objects. If the player cannot clear the playing field of its objects quickly enough, the play field will eventually fill to the brim and trap Toad, resulting in a Game Over.

This game rightfully deserves a place on your shelf. Alongside Kirby's Adventure and Super Mario Brothers 3, it ranks among the all time favorite NES games. Brand new, factory sealed, collector quality.
