Can anyone help me to name a game, this is the description I have to work off.
The hero looks like Mario (or maybe Mario himself), he fights using a cane. At the end of each stage, he will obtain a new weapon, like a stick that can emit flames, stick that can conjure a cloud, a stick with a fan at its end, ..etc
It is 2D, maybe on NES platform
Has anyone any idea of what it might be?
Anything more specific? What type of game and how it played.
Thanks for the reply, I've asked them if they can remember anything else about it. I know I haven't got much to go on at the moment, SonSon was the only game I could think of and it wasn't that.
Sounds like Duck tales, without the new weapons and the key factor "you're a duck"
What I was thinking too when I read that the weapon was a cane.
But the description also reminds me of Shinobi.
Like Retr0gamer said can you remember any more details? Did it have a counter at the end of each level... an open world map? Primary colour palette? Distinguishing features of enemies? Counter for health / score?
EDIT: Also Ninja Gaiden on the NES comes to mind... but then the main character doesn't look like Mario!
Musashi no Ken - Tadaima Shugyou Chuu?
Since the protagonist has a cane maybe it's one of the game based on journey to the west.
I've asked the person and they've come back with this, they seem adamant that the character looked like Mario.
I don’t remember much about bosses, except for one, who looked like a a bomb
One of the weapons you obtain is a stick that you can throw it straight to the wall, it will stick & you can climb higher areas
That stick can also slightly damage enemies and immobilize them
One weapon is a stick with a fan-like structure that can destroy walls
The mains character as I remember is Mario, but I searched all Mario games and didn’t see him or the game
That fits the description, I'll let you know if that's the one.
No joy with Bubba 'n' Stix, I really thought that was going to be it.
At this stage I'm ruling nothing out, I thought Retro had it with Bubba 'n' Stix.
