This has to be my favorite NES game that made it to USA. The hidden nuances in the controls, basing it off such a great story, what more can you ask for?

Who else feels the same?

This game has a certain animal magnetism to it:

After winning it for the first time (on the physical NES, not emulated!), I played through and won it 2-3 more times in the next week.

Then I used computers to extract the great music from the first part of the dungeon, and cristened the resulting MP3, "Prepare to enter Xak Tsaroth."

It had never occurred to me, before now, to try and obtain the soundtrack for my MP3 player. I could be working out to one of the most cromweligent composures of all time!

Great Idea! Huzzah!

Has anyone ever played Hillsfar? It raises many questions in my mind.

For example, "How sfar is that Hill?"

A great question indeed! Hillsfar is very, very far.

You see, our heroes in Xak Tsaroth are on the planet Krynn. Hillsfar, however, is on the planet Abeir-Toril, which isn't even in the same solar system.

Hillsfar is light years away. Quite far indeed!

Perhaps they'll get there via a STURMgate, for all distance is but an illusion next to a mustache so...heroic.

Alternately the heroes just need to go to another country for a charity basketball game, then visit a strange dojo near an oddly product-placed giant PEPSI sign. Those dojos are chock-full of transdimensional doorways!

Ah, but only Krynn has a Sturmgate (patent pending). Abeir-Toril has a Fargate, which, due to licensing and royalty issues, is not compatible. Even medieval fantasy worlds have lawyers. I believe it's a specialty in the sorcerer class.

Unfortunately, inter-planetary travel will require Spelljammer. And NOBODY wants to involve Spelljammer in this. Or anything else, for that matter.

If there's anything more Heroic than a Spelljammer, I don't know what it is:

Atmosphere clinging to the ship by cubic ton, beholders involved in racial civil wars, and horrible morey-spider-beasts = Huzzah!

But beware...for a starfreighter of naked dwarves could shin-kick an entire Fleet out of the air before you can press down + left + B!

I beg to disagree, good sir!

Look at those ghastly ships! Mollusks! Insects! Birds! All creatures unable to grow even the barest stubble of a heroic moustache!

A manly moustache can not simply be carved on the helm of your ship, like a trident or half naked mermaid! It must be grown naturally, and groomed with high quality moustache was and combs!

I say to thee, these "ships" are lesser than empty kegs of gully dwarf ale, not even fit for Sturm to dispose of his empty MJ bottles within!

Gadzooks! My poorly-worded assertion has come under attack, like unto a broadside from a space-faring galleon's allotment of light catapults! I shall yield on several points -- and yet point out a few potent ponderables:

I should have said that spelljammING -- the act of sailing through deep space on a magically-propelled boat -- is an Heroic thing to do...thus allowing for mustachioed captains to make their own ship truly Sturm-Esque (perhaps by being Sturm themselves?)

And verily, it would appear that many of the yachters of a space-faring variety, even (or especially?) the alien ones, try to follow the acme of masculinity that dwells with "100% In Lair" 'pon Sturm's upper lip:

Indeed, what are the Mindflayer's four brain-extracting face tentacles but an cephalopod attempt to mimic a mustache?

And consider the humble Eye Tyrant: were it to float upside-down, mightn't its crown of antenna be mistaken for a waving medusa-like forest of lip follicles? Of course, their eyestalk's individual ability to fire out Death Ray, Charm Person, Charm Monster, etc from its strands of faux-mustache might strike one as strange at first...but is it really so different from Sturm's facial decor, with its 30'-radius-effect of CHARM EVERYTHING?
