Nostalgia bop for the ages: Kickle Cubicle.

This is definitely something that the Gen Z kids won’t get. I was practically raised on this game, though, back when the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was the most recent console out. And to tell the truth, I’m surprised that this game hasn’t been included for digital download on things like the Virtual Console for the Wii even in spite of its relative obscurity (I mean, a lot of the older Castlevania games have, even in spite of the fact that the Castlevania franchise is a much more popular franchise, but I’m about to get into why I think it should have been), because the difficulty of the game is right in that sweet spot of making you want to come back and finish it, but not being so hard that you can’t. It is also, to this day, one of the most adorable games that I have ever played… and I’m in my thirties, having practically grown up on video gaming, having seen almost all of the consoles since their inceptions, so I don’t take saying that lightly. At some point in the future, I would just love to be able to snag this game for digital download somewhere, play it, and play it with my child. Enough said.
