The Goonies
Goonies - FC - Japan.jpg
Platform: NES
Year: 1986
Developer: Konami Corporation

Even though the movie was a success in the USA, The Goonies never made its way to the states on the NES, probably because it didn't do too well as an arcade game. This is a bit of a loss because the game would have been quite an attribute to any collection in 1986.

You must beat up mice, foxes, bats, skeletons, and of course the Fratellis in order to save your Goonie friends. Each stage has three keys and a Goonie trapped behind doors that must be bombed open. Once you save the Goonie and get the keys, while avoiding the numerous enemies, you can unlock the door to the next stage. It's pretty tough when you first play, but it becomes easier as you start to memorize the maps and find hidden powerups.

Even though it doesn't have that much to do with the movie, (do you remember when Mikey killed the giant rat to get a bomb to blow open a door to get a red potion?) it's still a solid platformer. Some movie tie-ins include Cyndi Lauper's famous The Goonies 'R' Good Enough theme, one of the Fratellis attacks you with his terrible opera singing, the falling rock traps from the movie are here, the pirate ship, even the excised octopus shows up.




The game's theme is Cyndi Lauper's, The Goonies 'R' Good Enough which would later be improved upon for The Goonies II (NES). It also has a few other basic songs, but nothing too impressive. The game lacks credits.

Ripping NES music is a very arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site. The Goonies rip is missing the Stage 5 music.
