Intro/Outro Hints

Once again, kudos to G for last week AND the week before successfully guessing our intros and outros. Last week it was indeed Startropics, an excellent little game somewhat similar to Zelda, but more tropically themed. Here are your starting clues for this week:

– The main character once again fights with a yoyo.
– If you know anything about 80s movies and music, you should be able to guess the game from the intro music alone.

That’s it for now. Start guessing!
