Ufouria: The Saga (NES review)

Developer: Sunsoft
Publisher: Sunsoft
Released: 1992

Ufouria: The Saga is an action-adventure game that was released in Australia, Europe and Japan.

+ Very accommodating to newcomers in terms of its difficulty and how it guides players at the start of the game.

+ World design is thoughtfully and meticulously crafted, and backtracking is a real joy rather than a chore.

+ Never feels too overwhelming and unlike Metroid (1987, NES) the inclusion of a map helps to focus your plan of attack.

+ The four playable characters have unique abilities that can often be combined with quick-switching to open up exploration.

+ Catchy music with area-specific tracks and bass-heavy tones synonymous with Sunsoft NES games.

- The need to press Down while jumping in order to attack is cumbersome and doesn't always work correctly in tight corridors.

- Boss battles are a huge let-down, as most require you to employ the same attack strategies to defeat them.
