Oh man, Mystery Quest. This was probably the single worst NES game I purchased as a child. I'd make it to the first castle, get lost, get killed by the crazy praying mantis a few times and then shut the game off for another month or so. I never got the Super Mario Bros. vibe except for the green blocks - it's a very floaty game, with none of the precision of SMB. I assume that they were going for the mix of platforming and adventure game but maybe it's just a poor platformer - I never got far enough to know. I'd like to see a speedrunner tackle this game just so I'd know if I missed anything - I started watching an extended play-through on Youtube a few years ago and even then I was bored to tears.
