Summary

Like Mario's Great-Grandfather

The Good

Montezuma's Revenge is rarely credited for being as innovative a game as it was. A platform/adventure, there are obvious Mario-esque elements first tried out in this game. The levels were sprawling and fun to explore and the graphics were very good for the time.

The Bad

The controls were extremely difficult; however, what platform game from this era moved well?

The Bottom Line

The dawn of platforming.
