A downloadable bonafide NES game

This is a placeholder page. At some point in time, there will be a proper itch page here.

Basically, this is a standalone expansion /mini-sequel to The Cowlitz Gamers' 2nd Adventure. I say mini-sequel because it's only 18 stages (16 plus 2 hidden chambers, compared to the original's 54) and it features the same gameplay mechanics.

It does, however, feature new playable characters. Beat the game at each difficulty to unlock new pairs of playable characters- many you might already know!

Also, many of the 18 stages that did make the cut were inspired by stages in an unreleased predecessor to the original Cowlitz Gamers Adventure programmed for the ZX Spectrum.

Here for the Homebrew Leaderboard Competition? Beat the game at the highest difficulty with all 16 diamonds, as much gold as you can carry, and in as quick a time as possible (and if permitted, with a buddy) for the highest possible score (time bonuses are based on time remaining on the clock at the end of each stage).

Good luck! Stream it you'd like, tag me on twitter, @mteegfx if you do. :)
