Anyone else like the ICOM games on the NES? My favorite is Shadowgate! I haven't beat it yet, mostly because I refused to use a walkthrough, but my wife decided that we needed a little bit of assistance last night after we kept getting stuck in the same rooms. She read the walkthrough to herself, and I would just ask her for a hint if I needed it. We were finally able to get the missing pieces for the main group of rooms we were stuck in last night, and now we've gotten to a later part of the game and put the walkthrough away. Pretty excited to hopefully finish this one soon, even if we did need a bit of help to do it.
Found out that using the Look command in this game is critical; look at everything! We missed several things on our first few attempts at this game because we weren't looking at everything.
