This is it, everybody. We're halfway through the final level of Athena on the NES. If all goes as it should, I'm finally going to see the end of this game after all these years! We're not out of the World of Worlds yet, and now we're getting into the Bosses that caused me so much trouble the first time through!
So I play through the entire World of Worlds again, and this time I don't pick up the Flaming Sword.
That's it. I don't know what I expected, but it was something more than that. Maybe they didn't think anyone was going to get this far?
I'll have final thoughts on Athena for the NES on Monday, I guess. I can't believe that's the ending!
