Solstice, an amazing puzzle game!
Hi, I'd like to tell you about Solstice, a Nintendo 8-bit game I bought for my console. Nostalgic as I am, I am trying to buy all the NES games I had when I was a kid back in the 80s and early 90s. Solstice were one of these, and it is one of my favourite puzzle/magic/exploration games of all time!<br><br>To be honest though, I could never finish this game as a kid, cause it might be one of the hardest games ever made. It never got the best reviews just because of this problem, but I personally think it deserved better.<br><br>One of the things you are going to notice whilst playing this game is the awesome music composed for this game, one of the best 8 bit tunes made, and I should know since I am a huge fan of 8-bit music.<br><br>You will also notice the interesting story to the game, the great details even for an 8-bit game, and some great puzzles you will encounter.<br><br>a small tip from me would be: there are often more possibilities to solve a puzzle then you might think, or see at once.<br><br>I have not played this game with the advantage, so I do not know how the controls react, but for me the normal nes controller worked fine. And after a "couple" of hours of playing the game, I can assure you, you will solve puzzle much easier.<br><br>,have fun!Read full review

GLAD TO FIND
I played the "Solstice" nintendo game years ago and it is so fun to play. My husband and I both liked it and have been looking in stores for it with no luck then someone suggested I look on EBay. I did and found it easily for a great price. This was the first time I bought anything on ebay.
