Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters

Kid Icarus returns with the same great action platforming found in the NES version. You control the angel Pit, who is given the mission of defending Angel Land from the invading demon army. Pit can attack in limited range with his bow and arrow and also jump to avoid enemies or reach higher areas.

The game is a bit easier since you no longer die from falling below the screen but with the larger sprites, you have less time to react to incoming enemies. Pit also has the ability to descend slowly by flapping his wings, very helpful since you can now travel back down the stage if necessary. The controls are precise as you would expect from a Nintendo platformer.
