Micronics was a Japanese video game developer that was known for making very bad NES games/ports, It was founded in 1985 and closed in 1996, with their last game being Spriggan Powered.

Why Their Games Sucked

  1. Most of their games had terrible graphics.
  2. Ear-bleedingly horrible music. A good example of this is their 1942 port, which replaced the whistle with high-pitched beeps.
  3. Their games had a lot of Artificial Difficulty in them due to the constant frame rate issues that plagued most of their NES games.
    • Their games runs only 10 fps or 30 fps instead of 60 fps.
  4. There was hitbox dissonance in their games.
  5. The controls in their ports tended to not be very responsive.
  6. Many of their games consisted of a few mediocre arcade game ports to the NES. One such example is Ikari Warriors on the NES.
  7. They made a lot of unnecessary tweaks in the gameplay from porting it from the arcade to the NES.
  8. The game mechanics were very inconsistent with their original games.
  9. Bad level designs on some of their games. Athena (NES) was hit quite hard by this.
  10. Unfair, Unbalanced and frustrating difficulty on some of their games.
  11. Some of their games have glitches. Even the Ghosts 'N Goblins port has constant sprite flickering.
  12. The sound effects they used in their games were also not very good.
  13. Their games have very long load times.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. Despite their games/ports being very bad, they at least had a few decent games & ports up their sleeve, such as the NES port of Ghosts 'N Goblins and 1942. Their last developed game Spriggan Powered on the SNES is also not bad.
