A tribute to the greatest console of all time. How many characters from the classic NES era can you identify?

Featuring over 136 characters and a special medal for those that can identify every one.

For anybody struggling enter the "Konami Code" on the title screen.

The small graphics are REALLY hard to see. also the character you named from Streetfighter (Can't remember who it was but the correct character was Balrog)

Some serious annoyances in there

"Airman from Megaman III". No, Airman is from Megaman 2
"Toad from Super Mario Bros." No, the Toad selected is the one from Super Mario Bros. 2
"Peach from Super Mario Bros. 2" No, her name was Princess Toadstool in Super Mario Bros. 2, not Peach. She wasn't called Peach in the US until Super Mario 64.
"Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" ... not technically wrong since that's the European name for those games, but come on just call it Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles like all the normal people do.
Mortal Kombat characters in there -- There was no official Mortal Kombat NES game although there exist unofficial fan-made versions.
Street Fighter II characters in there -- Same as Mortal Kombat, there was no official Street Fighter II NES game although there exist unofficial fan-made versions.

Great game but it game me a serious migraine with the small graphics, and I found it irritating how it did not check off characters when they were found.

The game is great, reminds me the old times, but for some reason is not giving me medals and doesn't save.

Pretty solid game...only gave it 4 stars for 2 reasons. First, it might have been helpful for the sprites to vanish so that it wouldn't leave you clicking the same sprite twice. Second would be to add a few extra NES songs on here..not sure what happened, but i got stuck listening to Ducktales 7 times straight which prompted me to immediately turn my volume down just to finish the game itself. Other than that, it was a decent nostalgic trip.
