Chiki Chiki Boys

Chiki Chiki Boys is a great little game that plays a lot like Wonder Boy in Monster Land. Reprogrammed by Sega due to Capcom’s licensing issues with Nintendo, this colorful and engaging arcade port is a solid adventure that more people need to try out. It flew under the radar of a lot of people, and needs to be played!

Renovation’s isometric action/RPG is one game that really shines when played with a friend. It features great combat and exploration, and the quest is a challenging one. This is one title you’ll definitely want to spend an afternoon with.
