I recently tried playing the stawars SNES games my pc with save states. Its still fucking hard, it doesn't make it any easier by being able to save mid level.
They were hella hard. I don't think I was even able to get past the sandworm on my own.
Yeah speaking of Super Star Wars, I remember getting to the level next to last and then died and all my work went to waste...boooooo! I almost made it to the end though, same with Battletoads for the NES...so close!
