Yo! Noid one of the greatest NES games EVER!

I am in a heated debate over this game with MachEnergy. He thinks this game sucked. He is WRONG, and you know it. Prove me right and share your thoughts.

I actually really enjoyed this game, it was one I played lots. But I was young at the time, who knows if my opinion is tainted by nostalgia.

There's a reason the tagline is 'Avoid the Noid.'

It was a solid platformer for it's day. The "pizza eating contests" in between the platforming levels were either a decent diversion or a steel-toed, product placement-laden, kick in the teeth depending on your taste (no pun intended) for mini-games. All in all, it was a decent game as far as platformers go, and a downright top tier title when compared to other brand tie-in games.

If you want a mascot game you can fight for, Cool Spot is probably your best bet that I can think of off the top of my head.

Yo! Noid was just a bad platformer. It controlled like shit back in the day, and it's even more awkward today. Around the same time, Capcom was pumping out awesome platformers, which made this one seem even worse. How could the same people behind Yo! Noid also be the same people who made Duck Tales, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, and the Mega Man franchise???

Also, Cool Spot for the Genesis was damn good. Damn good.

I came in to say virtually the same thing. Cool Spot was a much better game than Yo! Noid. However, saying Yo! Noid sucked is simply wrong. It was a slightly above average game.

I played it, it sucked. If I remember right it was hard. For some reason I remember dying for no reason. It was hard like Top Gun for the NES hard but this could all be jaded memories.

It was a good game. I used to play it a lot with my brothers. They got to the brown Noid and I was so excited I jumped off the bed which shook the floor and caused the NES to mess up. I received a severe beating because of that game.

Never played that one, though, the box art is familiar.

I had quite a bit of trouble with the Ice World, but really enjoyed the pizza eating contests. I don't remember the controls being completely horrid, but it's been a few years since I've popped the cartridge in.

You guys should try Avoid the Noid! for the PC. It's an old title where you are a pizza delivery guy trying to make it to the top of this building to deliver your wares while Noids chase you down the whole time. If they catch you, they knock you down and jump up and down on your pizza. Pretty damn hard game, if I remember correctly.
