Unlike another game I reviewed, Nightmare Busters is, in fact, a resurrected title from the 16-bit era (Super Nintendo this time). Owing its admittedly limited physical release to retro developer/producer/publisher Super Fighter Team, this is a side-scrolling run-and-gun about leprechauns and… that’s about it. I’d love to be able to tell you that the effort to bring the game into the physical realm in the modern era brought an innovative gem to light, but in all honesty everything about it is fairly average for the time and hardware it was originally crafted in. Sure, the music’s a little all-over-the-place and the pace is a bit muddy, but it’s nothing that even some of the more highly-regarded SNES titles weren't likewise guilty of. Collectors will want to snatch this one up while reprints are still available, but otherwise you’re better off sticking with more accessible, mechanically superior examples of the genre.
