Released in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the hugely influential Nintendo Entertainment System console (which first appeared in Japan as the Famicom, in 1984), the "Classic NES Series" of Game Boy Advance cartridges present accurate versions of original NES games, for play on the handheld.
Despite less graphical detail along the ground, and explosions that don't sound quite as deep, Xevious for the NES is an extremely faithful port of Atari's 1982 arcade classic, which has players controlling a futuristic plane that can fire missiles and drop bombs as it scrolls vertically through enemy territory. ~ All Game Guide
