Takahashi Meijin no Bouken Jima IV is an action platformer game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was not released in the West where it could have received an official title as Adventure Island IV.
On his 4th adventure, Master Higgins lives peacefully on an island with his girlfriend Tina and his dinosaur friends. Suddenly, a mysterious evil face appeared and kidnapped the dinosaurs. Master Higgins is set to rescue them and defeat the island bosses.
The gameplay is quite different from previous games where the player just clears a stage from point A to point B. The game is more of an action adventure game, the player collect hearts to increase max HP, play mini-games to get new items, and defeat bosses to gain new tools and dinosaur allies. And the game uses a password system.
Again, Demi does a great job translating this game, fortunately leaving out the “yaya” stuff that’s been in some of his earlier work. And the title screen is super sweet, even though I took the pic in NESticle and the colors are all weird. Now go thank him right now for allowing you to play this gem! Right now goddammit!
