In fact, in 1990 and 1994, Capcom released two Chip 'N Dale games, both highly acclaimed, and the second one regarded as one of the best licensed NES titles ever made. However, we're not going to cover those. Instead, we are going to look at the DOS game known as "Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers: The Adventures in Nimnul's Castle."
Released in 1990 by Hi-Tech Expressions, this game was developed by Riedel Software Productions. As the title would imply, the Rescue Rangers must venture into Professor Nimnul's castle. What little story there is is shown in the opening cutscene, where we see that Monterrey Jack has gotten his tail caught in a mousetrap after going on one of his trademark cheese binges. Although it is never explicitly stated, Monty is apparently caught in Nimnul's castle. He urges Zipper to go get Chip 'N Dale, and so begins the game.
|This is all the story we get. Also, shouldn't his tail be severed?|
|The only difference between levels is that the camera zooms in on the background.|
If you run out of lives, you are treated to a screen where Chip, Dale, and Gadget look very sad. If you win, you get a screen where Monty is saved. That's about it for the variety in this game. There is no music at all, and the only sound is emitted through the PC speaker. It mostly consists of silly chirpy sound effects which are forgettable.
|I can't tell if they're sad about failing, or the fact that there's a pencil coming out of Gadget's giant ass.|
