This game was fun as hell to play, but ultimately frustrating because just like Duck Tales, there is no continue. Once you lost all 3 of your lives, it was truly game over. I haven't seen a "Game Over" screen in a long time, much less one that won't give you the option to continue.
I was just having a grand time re-living all of my childhood frustrations and joys. The great thing about the frustrations is that now I am an adult and have adult ways of working out frustrations that don't involve me throwing or biting my controller (beer and wanking take the place of those two), not to mention that I can go to any other game in my library at any time if I really get mad. All in all, I'd say that I had a really good day. Next time I'll have to preach on the greatness that is Super Castlevania IV for the SNES. Thanks for reading.
