Thundercade only has four levels, but, like Sir Mix-A-Lot, they are long, strong, and down to get the friction on. From the very first city level, Motorcycle Man is overrun by kamikaze soldiers, tanks of different flavors, lightning fast helicopter attacks, and more. Bombs and side-guns help thin the herd, but wielding your hog with precision is your best bet for staying alive. Two-player co-op helps you get through the game quicker, though you will fight over side guns; testosterone ablaze and all that. Thundercade wouldn’t even rank in a “best-of” NES shooter list, but it’s not unworthy of your time either.

If you can get past the annoying, one-dimensional sound effects Thundercade is a pretty fun shooter. The motorcycle handles smoothly, there's a nifty (though short) bonus round between each level, the weapons are interesting, and the action never lets up.
This one's a sleeper - there's much more than meets the eye. A very good good vertically scrolling shooting game. The power-up side-car weapons are hidden, and finding them adds to the challenge of the game. Thundercade moves fast and is loaded with action. Definitely worth trying.
Two-player simultaneous action is available to share the unintense experience. There’s passable action, but the drab graphics, below average music, and uninteresting scenery make this a yawner.
