Finds 1522: Castle of the Winds, Shadow of the Ninja, Return of the Ninja, and Mobile Light Force 1 & 2


Here is some new awesome stuff that arrived in the mail. Mail loot is always fun as sometimes I forget what I've ordered. Don't blame me, I'm old and some of these are pre-orders that take forever to arrive. 


First, we have some Limited Run Games that are finally here. Shadow of the Ninja got a re-release in NES format and it came in a really nice packaging. The game is a lot of fun as I've played it years ago and had a blast. It's also quite challenging. The one I haven't played ever is Return of the Ninja for the Gameboy. This game apparently didn't come out here, but I haven't really checked much on it as it may have had a different name. I'm not sure!


The cover art for these two is quite odd. You would never believe that these games are actually shoot 'em ups! But yeah, they are! You want to see some photos of proof? Here!

You would've never guessed right? This is insane! But it's really cool. Originally, this game was released by Atlus as Gunbird. It's a very popular game and I believe there was a release of it on the Dreamcast but correct me if I'm wrong. I decided to get both games and believe it or not, the PS2 version was cheaper than the PS1 version.



Finally, this is a really cool game that I've been looking for a while. I wanted it complete in box and finding one is quite tricky. I tried the Bay and did found some and even one with a rip on the box that has been there forever. I didn't wanted this ripped, I wanted it fully working. This is really cool. Castle of the Winds is one of those games that I played when I first started to use AOL 3.0 back in 1997. It was a magical time and I was introduced to so many games on my old Windows 95 PC that I was overloaded with joy. I was never able to beat the game as it can be quite tough. I have been playing it more recently and have done progress. I do need to find a guide because I'm stuck so will keep you posted. 


It's such a primitive DOS/Windows 3.11 game, it's just pure nostalgia.
