  1. Chicken Puppet

    This is a very short game, and a great “palette cleanser” between more involved games. It’s pretty fun because it’s so basic and fast paced.

  2. TragicGuineaPig

    We had the arcade cabinet of this game in our barracks game room. And for some reason, the cabinet wasn’t locked, so we basically gave ourselves a practically unlimited number of credits to play. The arcade version had better control and was a bit more aesthetically polished than the NES port. If you can track down the cabinet version, check it out and compare.
