"Another obscure NES title that deserves a second look...or perhaps a first."
''Dr. Livingston, I presume?''
-Sir Henry M. Stanley
Certainly a famous quote... you've probably heard it a hundred times. Or something. But the point is not everybody knows the story behind it. Paraphrased from the Internet History Sourcebook:
David Livingstone (that is how it is really spelled) was a celebrated African explorer and missionary. After many years in Africa, he was lost sight of, and it was generally believed that he was dead. James Gordon Bennett, proprietor of the New York Herald, sent the young reporter, who was afterwards known as Sir Henry M. Stanley, with an open account in search of him. After two years of searching, during which Stanley's reports--printed in the Herald--served to energize public interest in the exploration and conquest of Africa... Sir Stanley succeeded in his endeavor.
Well, you might have known that, but did you know that there was actually a NES game based upon this. Yup, there was, and it was a pretty good game, too. And get this, its a side-scrolling platform jumper, based upon the famous adventure of Sir Henry M. Stanley. There is more to it than that, of course. You have to search the various villages and temples for the weapons, armor, and enchanted odds and ends necessary to complete your quest. Yes, I'll admit that it is a weird concept, but it is also made for an intriguing game.
You, of course, play the roll of Sir Stanley, the adventurous American reporter who sets off after the illusive British Doc. The game begins with your boat docking in a sea side colonial village on the coast of Africa, and off you go. Welcome to the jungle, man. (Though I doubt the real Henry Stanley had to deal with spiders the size of horses).
Stanley: The search for Dr. Livingston is a rare game that is a well known but should be tried and that is getting much harder to find anymore. I do have a copy on my web site.
