Genre – Platformer
Platform – NES
I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of McKids on the Nintendo Entertainment System. This was a game inspired by McDonald’s, which may have turned a lot of potential gamers away. Underneath the advertising, however, was a pretty solid game.
My parents rented this for us and my sisters and I played it a lot. We really had a lot of fun with it. This is a fairly standard platformer, but it did offer a couple of fun elements like the ability to walk upside down. The gameplay was fluid and intuitive enough for three kids aged 12, 8 and 7 to figure out. I’m sure there were a few parts that I had to get through for them, as seems to be the way when playing with younger siblings.
I have very fond memories of this game and the time spent with my sisters. I have it on my GCW Zero and have played it within the last year or so. It still holds up after all these years. Check it out if you can!
