The official Talespin games
There are basically three games that have been released (even if the games spanned on a total of 5 consoles)
I'll probably do a full review of the games later, but here's a summary :
Nes / Game Boy
The Nes and the Game boy versions are similar : it is a side-scrolling shoot-em up game with the Sea Duck (*gasp* since when does the Sea Duck has guns?? and isn't there a little...size problem? )
Megadrive / Game gear
This version is a classic platformer game. You can play both Baloo and Kit, and there's even a two players option. Unfortunately, the game is very awful, especially when it comes to playability...
Turbografx-16 (Pc engine)
Last but not least, the Pc engine version of Talespin is also a platformer, but a nicer one (actually it's my favorite out of the three - even if it's pretty bad too), even though it's probably the less known version.
Play the Talespin games online
A few of the Talespin games can be found and can be played directly online! I don't know how long these sites will be online, considering the legal issues, but you may still test and try them :
Note : The emulation of these games has bugs and is slow (even on my quad-core computer!!) so if you want to play these games in good conditions, consider either buying the original cartridges, or get the roms and use a conventional PC emulator.
So far I haven't been able to find the TG16 version - although it's not too difficult to find the rom for it. (it would be much more complex to find the real "card" though...)
Too bad that Disney has still not released any of there games on the Nintendo Wii...
Here's a simple Talespin coloring game that I have found online. Nice...
