Warp Zone Podcast: August 1990

It’s another busy month of NES releases, but unfortunately most of them fail to impress. We also go over our top 10 licensed NES games (games based on other IP, like cartoons, comics, movies, etc.). Did your favorites make the cut?

 

 

We hope you enjoyed our trip down memory lane.
