Castlevania

Searched and didn't see anything recent this cheap on Switch. May need to redeem in the e-shop on the Switch itself.

I can't get the cheat code to work for the life of me on switch. It's because I'm using the pro controller? Help!

Haha I have no reason to lie...but this was before the twitch and live streams so I guess I'll just have to take that with me to the grave. I know I can't replicate it now because I'm 30 years older and eye hand coordination is just not the same. Sucks getting old 😆

Are these good in today's standard? Besides the nostalgia factor. Trying to decide which to buy. only played the original Contra before but I already have it on 3ds. decisions decisions.
As someone who played many of these games as a kid and finding I don't have nearly the skill or reflexes of my younger self, buy them if you can play them. I don't even think young players without the skills of perhaps a Dark Souls player can make it through the brutal and relentless difficulty of these games of that early era.

Even with the 30-lives cheat code, I probably won't make it to the end of any of these games not that I won't have fun and quite a bit of frustration trying.

I do remember that it's doable (with the famicom) -I may have done it once, especially with the "S" gun, which I always thought stood for "shower" (with bullets). The very least, no more than 3 lives... newer versions didn't seem to have the same game play.

Replayed this recently and glad to hear that it's not just me that can't make it that far, even with the extra lives code.
