Nintendo Famicom The Goonies SKUFM9
Nintendo Famicom The Goonies SKUFM9 s a 1986 platform game based on the movie of the same name produced by Konami in Japan. It was later ported to the Disk System in 1988.
The player controls Mikey. Mikey defends himself with a kick, bombs (whose explosions are instantly fatal to Mikey if he’s hit), and a slingshot (found randomly behind doors). Mikey can find diamonds, restoring his life meter to full if he collects eight. He can also find upgrades that protect him against various hazards such as a firesuit that protects against flames and a set of earmuffs that protect against the music notes cast out by one of the Fratelli brothers..
he Goonies was developed by Konami in 1986. Naturally, it is based somewhat on the movie of the same name, where a boy named Mikey and his friends discover the treasure of a pirate just in time to prevent their home town from being bought out by greedy land developers. While the game incoporates some of the more identifiable aspects of the movie, it follows a decidedly different plot line, with the gang of Mikey’s friend captured by the Frateli family, one of the movie’s antagonists. Mikey is therefore required to proceed from stage to stage and rescue them, while exploring labyrinthine dungeons and locating power-up items.
While searching for the lost treasure of the pirate One-Eyed Willie, the Goonies have been captured and locked up by the mad Frateli family. Only Mikey was able to escape their clutches. Now it’s up to him to find and release all of them. In the process, he will end up following the trail of Chester Copperpot, who was one of the first to try to find Willie’s treasure. Freeing the final Goonie will lead Mikey straight to the old pirate ship where Willie hid his treasure, so that the Goonies can help save Goon-town from destruction.
There are six stages in all. Power-ups and diamonds are hidden from sight. To reveal them, players must discover the particular joystick input specific to the stage they are hidden in. After the player completes the stages at the first level of difficulty, the input required for each stage changes in the second level. Many secrets are scattered throughout the game including cameos from the likes of Konamiman, and Twinbee. Even a secret warp can be found in order to bypass one level. Many of the features and items introduced in this version found their way into the more advanced sequel.
