Milon's Secret Castle is another of Hudson's early efforts on the NES. And, like Mighty Bomb Jack before it, it falls well short of being fun. Like any old-school game from the '80s, Milon has its own small, cult following – but new players not already familiar with the title will simply feel frustrated, lost, and cheated out of their 500 Wii Points. Invest in a different NES classic instead.

Milon’s Secret Castle was not an impressive feat of game design in 1986, but its flaws are only multiplied 25 years later. The only way for a gamer in 2011 to progress through this outing is by constantly booting up the virtual instruction manual and digging for hints or seeking help on the internet. The Virtual Console is bursting at the seams with quality platformers, so spending that 500 Wii Points elsewhere could get you a much more refined experience.

Terrible graphics, mindless level design, annoying music and ultimately repetitive gameplay and it becomes hard to recommend. Games from 1986 have to be really special in order for them to be playable today - Milon’s Secret Castle sadly isn’t. There are probably many Milon fanboys out there reading this review and cursing under their breath, but to be brutally honest it's hard to see why this game has built up such a following over the years - it stinks. Avoid.
