Flashback Friday: Goof Troop

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday, everyone! I hope everyone’s May was good! This year is going by so quickly.

This month’s Flashback Friday is celebrating a game that Rachel used to ask me to play with her when we were both much younger. It wasn’t a game that held my attention too long, with me preferring Ocarina of Time or Super Mario RPG. However, we did have a good time with Goof Troop when we did play the game!

Goof Troop was released in North America in July 1993 by Capcom on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was based off of the cartoon of the same name that aired around that time. An action-adventure game, it was capable of being multiplayer with one player controlling Goofy while the second player controlled his son Max. Goofy is slower than Max but can deal more damage.

The story is fairly simple, if a bit silly, but on par with the cartoon that the game is based on. While on a fishing trip, Goofy and Max witness their friends Pete and PJ get kidnapped by pirates. Figuring they should go and save them, Goofy and Max go through five areas on Spoonerville Island until they confront the pirates and free Pete and PJ. The game itself got average reviews, but it was agreed by most critics that the game was fun, even if it wasn’t very long or involved.

Rachel and I had fun with the game, mostly due to the game’s puzzles that were made for two players. In fact, the game’s few criticisms came from the single-player mode, when it was tedious from trying to complete puzzles that were meant to have more than one person solving them.

Of course, Rachel and I also had great fun sabotaging each other against the pirate enemies instead of working together! We were reminded of this game due to one of our favorite YouTubers making a video on it. If you’d like, check out Jirard the Completionist’s video of it:

Games I Played as a Kid

Rachel Mii Double JumpHi guys, it’s Rachel.

Now that Kris and I have started this blog, I’ve been looking through all the video games I have. Some games I forgot I had.

I went through some really old games and found myself saying, “Oh, I remember that one!” So here are some games I played as a kid.

super nintendo video games

I grew up with a Super Nintendo as my home console. I often watched my sister play video games all the time until I became old enough to attempt them myself.

There were games we played together all the time and then there were other games that I played by myself.

The Lion King

Who doesn’t love The Lion King? I remember playing this game a lot and not getting very far in it. I always died way too early. I mostly enjoyed watching Kris play the game.

Tiny Toons

This was a great game. I never understood it, but I remember playing it a lot with Kris. She was always better at it, but I did enjoy the mini games.

Streetfighter

I absolutely loved this game when I was little. No one would ever play it with me though. It wasn’t Kris’s thing so I often played alone at my grandparents’ house because they owned a copy of the game… for some reason.

Goof Troop

This game was… not so good. Though I thoroughly enjoyed it when I was a kid. Again, Kris wasn’t very smitten with it, but I made her play with me a bunch of times. It was just better (and easier) to play with two people. One person played as Goofy, the other as Max. I often roped my dad into playing it with me whenever Kris wouldn’t. I remember being Max picking up barrels and throwing them at Goofy. Then my dad would get confused as to why he was hurt.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time

By far the best (and quickest) game ever. I mean, looking back on it now it’s not the greatest game, but it’s still one of the best. Kris and I are huge Ninja Turtles fans and we played this game a lot, though I don’t think we ever beat it. Either way, we had a lot of fun with it.
