StarTropics (1990) – Title Screen (Retron 5 Enhanced)

Many a night and several rentals with a friend saw us attempting to beat this game (and figure out its plot). StarTropics mixes an native island setting with an alien invasion plot and yo-yo for a weapon. This one is begging for a replay sometime soon.

Info from Wikipedia:
StarTropics is an action-adventure video game released by Nintendo in 1990 for the NES. Unlike most of Nintendo’s games, it was never released or intended to be released in Japan. It was released only in North America and Europe, although designed by Japanese designers living in the United States. It was produced, written and directed by Genyo Takeda of Nintendo Integrated Research & Development (which also developed the Punch-Out!! series).
