Thunder & Lightning (NES)
|Thunder & Lightning|
Just another one of those Breakout-type games, this time with co-op multiplayer!
The round/lives display screen has music, whose beginning is very similar to the title screen music, but you never get to hear the full song. If you did, you'd notice that it doesn't actually have the same melody, and that it's slightly different from the title screen music. Use the Game Genie code ZAKATAPA to listen to the full song at the title screen instead of the original melody.
There are some unused sound effects as well. Tracks 1, 5, 8, $B, $C, $D, $13, $14, $16, $17 in the SE pointer table are unused (the actual in-game index is $0A higher).
There is a total of 30 valid levels in both the US and Japanese versions of the game. Upon completing level 30, the game unceremoniously ends with a GAME OVER screen - kind of a slap in the face, considering how difficult the game is. For some reason, the Japanese version continues on to level 31, 32, etc. afterwards, which are nothing but garbage; the US version at least fixes this oversight.
