Favorite Tunes #183: Wonder Wild Tetris

This is what we get for a subtitle when I'm really friggin' sleepy and I can't think of much. No doubt you've deduced that Tetris is a part of this week's Favorite Tunes but if you can guess the other two without going further, give yourself a cookie.

Dragon's Castle - Wonder Boy in Monster Land (ARC)

No doubt this theme will sound very familiar to Wonder Boy fans or new players that have played the recently released Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, which is a remake of Wonder Boy III. The arcade version of this theme sounds very NES-like, which certainly isn't a bad thing. Even the chiptune version of this song is tops.

Play throughly the Puyopuyo - Puyo Puyo Tetris (Multi)

What has been available in Japan for a few years now has finally been given an American release. Puyo Puyo Tetris is a wonderful fusion of the two games, containing loads of characters, combos and chains and super catchy music.

Lunar Colony - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (NS)

I have no idea what Nintendo was thinking with that weak sauce Battle mode in the original Mario Kart 8. Thankfully, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe includes a not only a battle mode with new, arena style courses, but even more ways to do battle outside of popping balloons like Shine Thief and Coin Runners. We even got some new beats to go with the new battle modes.

Hidden by Night (Lich Yard) - Shovel Knight Specter of Torment (Multi)

If there's one game that is reason enough not to give up on crowd funded titles, it is Shovel Knight. Released in 2014, the game continues to get new content and was even given a physical release in 2015. The latest of the new goods is Specter of Torment, a mode that lets us step into the soul of Specter Knight. You can download Specter of Torment seperately or grab the whole Shovel Knight package in Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, which also includes the Plague of Shadows DLC.

Shrine Battle - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U, NS)

Compared to the ones roaming the sprawling overworld, the miniature Guardians aren't all that intimidating. Then come the Major Test of Strength shrines and the little guys get on a level close to that of the stalker variety. The really great thing about shrine fights? This sick theme!

Lab 1 (Double Dragon 2 - Mission 1) Double Dragon Neon (PS3, 360)

Double Dragon was a product of the 1980s so it made perfect since for Double Dragon Neon to reflect the era it was born out of. The music, especially was a major throwback, with a serious 1980s vibe, And I thought Mission 1 from Double Dragon 2 couldn't get any better.
