Hey friends! Welcome to a standard LP of Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers for the NES! I seriously love this game, I played it a thousand times growing up, I played it a hundred times as an adult, and I Lets Played it a time to share with you all.
I know standard LPs aren't what this channel is about, but it's fun for me to relax with a game I know and love every once in a while, and just bask in some Chip and Dale nostalgia for a minute It's a short game too, so we won't be at this more than two episodes.
I lvoe every single thing about this game. I love the music so much that I would buy a CD of it. I love the level design, it's challenging but easy enough to make it a casual platformer rather than something to stress you out. I love the both-at-once multiplayer, which is literally unheard of on NES and makes this game SO MUCH FUN to play with a friend.
Seriously, for NES couch co-op games, this is probably my #1 choice. You can play it with anyone and beat it, it's short and easy enough that even very casual gamers can struggle through, although there is a life limit if I recall.
I can't recommend this game enough, no matter what your situation is. You can be good or bad at video games, you can be looking for a game to play with a friend or alone, you can love or hate platformers even and I think you'll find some value here because of the way it's made. It's just that good.
Oh, and the casino song is one of the best video game compositions ever made, and I won't hear anyone tell me otherwise. I would tattoo that song on the inside of my ear if that made any sense.

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers (チップとデールの大作戦 Chippu to Dēru no Daisakusen, "Chip 'n Dale's Mission") is a platformer video game developed and published by Capcom based on the Disney animated series of the same name. Originally released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in Japan and North America in 1990, it came to Europe the next year, and was ported to the Nintendo PlayChoice-10 arcade system. It sold approximately 1.2 million copies worldwide.
The game was included in The Disney Afternoon Collection compilation for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One released in April 2017.
Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers is a platform game featuring single and 2-player cooperative modes, allowing players to choose which levels to access via a map of various locations throughout the city. Each individual stage is set up as a side-scrolling action game where Chip and Dale can walk, jump, duck, and pick up objects such as acorns, crates, barrels, and balls to throw at enemies and bosses. Each character can withstand only three direct hits before they lose a life, and there are no passwords. In two-player mode, Controller 1 is Chip, Controller 2 is Dale.
The rest of the Rescue Rangers also appear to support Chip and Dale. Monterey Jack will occasionally appear to break down certain barricades, while Zipper grants temporary invincibility to the player when found. Gadget, though in Fat Cat's captivity, provides tips and advice for the chipmunks in each stage.
The Rescue Rangers are going on a mission to retrieve a missing kitten for a girl named Mandy. As Gadget goes on ahead to scout the area and Monterey Jack is sent to investigate sightings of strange mechanical dogs with Zipper, Chip and Dale proceed through the streets and into a laboratory, where they are attacked by a crazed robot.
---⦕ Series Information ⦖---------------
Squiggy Beats It is a series where I do some sort of full playthrough of a video game, in classic Lets Play fashion. The only requirement to this series is that I beat the game in some way. You can always expect a full playthrough with commentary when you start one of these series.
I won't always beat the game 100%, and I may even do multiple playthroughs of a single game if they're done in a different way. There's also no restriction to what console or platform it is on. Some days we will play NES games like Chip and Dale or Mega Man, sometimes we'll play indie games like Cally's Trials and Reveal. It's really whatever I'm feeling that day.
This won't be the most frequently updated series, because it doesn't really fit with the rest of the channel, but I'll make videos for it every once in a while when I feel like taking a break from the other series and relaxing with a classic LP. Feel free to shout out suggestions in the comments, you know I love that stuff.
