When I got to Hazy Maze Cave, the stars were easily obtained, but I got stuck on the coin collecting. It took a few days to conquer, but when I discovered the blue coins (5 coin value) in the poisonous maze, the rest were easy. By this point, I'd conquered the wall jump, something which I found really hard in the original.
Lethal Lava Land was easy, as in the original, while Shifting Sand Land posed a few problems. But it was all in good fun, and I conquered the quicksand sooner or later. Soon, I made it to the upper levels. Wet-Dry world was easy. Seriously, were there this many coins in the original? However, that's where I met a problem. Tall, Tall Mountain. Are there even 100 coins in this? Sheesh... There's not even any blue coins or anything, and I can't use that slide thing because you get stuck at the end in a small room with the star.
Anyway, I decided to put it aside for now, and set off to the later levels. Tiny-Huge Island? Easy. Tick Tock Clock? (Insert easy clock joke here). But Rainbow Ride brought back painful memories. I remember the shortcut at the start, but seriously... HOW THE HELL DID I DO THIS WHEN I WAS 9?!?!? It's not the new star that causes problems, but those magic carpet rides. This is why I love videogames. But seriously, I'm wondering how a 9 year old could negotiate those magic carpets, swinging platforms and the dreaded donut blocks.
I remember a long night, spent trying to get the 100 coins on this level. Then, the absolute greatness I felt when I fired myself onto the roof, and met Yoshi. At the age of 9, that was a feat I hadn't thought would have been possible. Now, I've completed all the worlds (including coin stars) except for the coin star on Tall, Tall Mountain, two mission stars on Rainbow Ride and the coin star on said hell. Then there's the red coins and secret stars in the character saving levels, that switch star in Bowser in the Fire Sea....
I love this game. Plus, I'm sure many of you do as well. Remember any childhood videogaming nightmares, which you wouldn't have thought were possible, when you look back?

Oh yeah! Mortal Kombat 2! That still scares me up to this very day, heh. Remember the level with the trees pulling scary faces in the background?
I also loved Baraka's mischevious, metal mouthed grin. Ack.
And yeah, Resi Evil 2 is possibly the scariest game of all time. That or Half Life 2.
When i was 7-8 Mortal Kombat 2 scared me, just the whole atmos with the music etc, if i was in my room on my own playing it i felt un-easy and Baraka scared me sh*tless.
I didn't have a problem with the Resi Evil games when I was younger. Yeah I was scared, but I was naturally an amazing gamer, so I breezed through it with ease. I tend to always finish my games, but hey, I'm great.
Or you could hope Mario Kart SNES is on the list of downloadable games for the Revolution.
I bought Yoshi's Island and Super Mario World for the GBA just because I love those games so much.
