The Cowlitz Gamers' Lost Adventure
A downloadable bonafide NES game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android
This is a placeholder page. Download is at the bottom. At some point in time, there will be a proper itch page here with manual, cover art, and all.
Basically, this is a standalone expansion /mini-sequel to The Cowlitz Gamers' 2nd Adventure. I say mini-sequel because it features the same gameplay mechanics and it's only 18 stages (16 plus 2 hidden chambers, compared to the original's 54) .
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.
The 2019 version of Lost Adventure is also included on Action 53 Vol. 4: Actually 54. You'll notice that this stand-alone, 2020 version is slightly different graphically.

Included is an NES ROM. You'll need an emulator. Mesen's suggested, but not required. :)
