Lost Days of Thunder NES game

Postby VideoGameCritic » June 1st, 2020, 4:53 pm

I found it interesting that someone exhumed an unreleased old NES game called Days of Thunder from 21 floppy disks!

Apparently they are going to make it available on cartridge. I'd love to review this previously lost piece of history.

Comparing this to Bill Elliott NASCAR Challenge, the Hard Drivin' protoptype, and the released Days of Thunder game...and there's not really much of a comparison, graphically.

But you've not reviewed a single one of them. I wonder if any of these games was worth playing, and whether this was a technological challenge worth pursuing in the first place?

I mean, Argonaut's port of Race Drivin' on the Gameboy is considered one of the best versions of that game, and the C64 has a surprisingly good version of Sega's Power Drift, so it's not like this was an impossible challenge. Just, perhaps, a challenge that should have been left to people who had already mastered the limited hardware?
