Notable Stuff:

  • The editors' strategy to defeat the armored tanks on the Snow Field level of Contra is to let them kill you and just run by while invincible. Er...why not just stand on the left side of the screen and, you know, shoot them?
  • Lots of spelling/grammar errors in the Gauntlet entry ('know' instead of 'now', 'them' instead of 'then', etc...).
  • No mention of the fact you have to beat Ghosts 'N' Goblins twice, guys? For shame...
  • The editors also seem to have trouble differentiating between 'loose' and 'lose'.
  • The screenshot for Legend of Kage where it claims Kage has been killed by alerted guards is actually a shot of him reading the Scroll item, which results in a torrential rain of dead enemies.
