Study Hall - Challenge Mode With Zero Deaths

This is Study Hall, a new NES homebrew game that was released in February 2014.  It plays similar to Donkey Kong Junior, but it has enough of its own material to make it unique.  Definitely worth checking out for anyone so still has their NES and wants to play something different.

Anyway, this is me playing through the special Challenge Mode that is unlocked when you beat the game.  It's a very unforgiving set of 8 levels where you get unlimited lives to try and beat the game before the clock runs out.  It took a bit of practice, luck, and plenty of resets, but I managed to play through all of the levels without a single death.

Hope you enjoy it!

Cobra Triangle - My First Win

Finally beat Cobra Triangle without continues for the first time recently.  This game had frustrated me to no end as a kid, but no longer!

This was actually a really clean run, particularly during the second half of the game.  I think I went deathless from stage 14 on.  Only major hiccups were a few bonehead mistakes on stage 9 and missing all of the 1ups in the bonus stages, which also cost me a few hundred thousand points.  Still very happy with the run!
