Kid Icarus

A Platform game for NES by Nintendo

Kid Icarus box art

In a time when men and gods lived in harmony, the kingdom of Angel Land was ruled by two goddesses: Palutena, the Goddess of Light, and Medusa, the Goddess of Darkness. Unlike Palutena, Medusa despised all humans and enjoyed destroying their crops and turning them into stone. One day, Palutena decided to punish the evil Medusa and banished her after turning her into a hideous monster. But Medusa would not go without a fight. She created an army of monsters and evil spirits and captured Palutena. You are Pit, a young angel trapped in the Underworld, and Palutena's only hope. They use a magical bow to retrieve the Sacred Treasures, defeat Medusa and restore peace to Angel Land.

Kid Icarus and Metroid

Kid Icarus and Metroid

Kid Icarus and Metroid for NES share several similarities. For one, they feature remarkably similar gameplay, though Kid Icarus is a bit more linear. More importantly, they both utilize the same game engine and were released on the same day in America, and a big selling point for both titles was its use of passwords. Although its called "Sacred Words" in Kid Icarus, the password system is identical in both games, though you can't recruit Justin Bailey in your quest to save Angel Land.

Kid Icarus even features Metroids as enemies in Level 3, the Skyworld, although they do not behave the same as they do in Metroid. Some screenshots recently released at E3 2011 reveal that these Metroid-like enemies, called "Komayto", will return to fight again in the upcoming Kid Icarus: Uprising.
