The Goonies II (NES)
|The Goonies II|
The Goonies II adds onto the plot of the first game while loosely sticking to the theme of the movie. The Fratellis have broken out of prison and kidnapped your Goonie buddies and hidden them in their underground hideout. As an added (highly bizarre) twist, the Fratellis have also kidnapped your mermaid friend, Annie.
You play Mikey and you must search through the hideout and rescue the Goonies. Most of the game plays in an action-packed platform standard with ladders and lots of jumping, but you will also have to navigate through a series of 3D passageways. The map is quite open which allows you to visit most of the game early on, but certain areas require special equipment to get to. There is a large amount of items to collect and you become more powerful as you find them.
The only real downfall of this game is the annoyance of having to search through the passageways. In order to find all the secrets, every single room must be searched eleven different ways (hit 5 surfaces, hammer 5 surfaces, and use glasses). While most of the items found in this way aren't necessary to complete the game, a couple necessary items can only be found through this tedious method of searching. Aside from this vice, the game is a lot of fun.
The music is on par with the first game. It features two up-beat versions of Cyndi Lauper's, "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough" as well as several original tunes. While the game lacks credits, former Konami composer Iku Mizutani confirmed that Satoe Terashima did the music for the game.

- Game Credits:
The screenshot was taken from the hidden credits in the Japanese release. The prototype had credits hidden that could be activated by pressing A+B+Down on controller 2 while using the Transmitter. The credits remained in the official Japanese release, but since controller 2 input was turned off, you have to reactivate it by hacking the ROM. The credits were completely removed from the USA and PAL releases. Satoe Terashima is credited as an arranger since she made the original arrangements of The Goonies 'R' Good Enough in the first game, and Cyndi Lauper, Broughton Lunt, and Aurthur Stead are included because they composed The Goonies 'R' Good Enough.
Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site.
