Cry A Lot Wings
Pilot Wings came out on the Wii U virtual console. I’m really loving writing comics about classic games as they come out like this. Also, this actually happens in Pilot Wings. You’re on a family vacation, and Big Al decides to send you into an active war zone in a helicopter to dodge missiles and extract people. Apparently whatever paramilitary organization Big Al works for is so strapped for people that they trick unsuspecting men in Hawaiian shirts into carrying out vital missions while they’re still tipsy from the concoction they drank out of a hollowed out pineapple (they didn’t think it would be that strong). He also turns you into some sort of penguin or bird or bird/man amalgamation. I’m not entirely sure what it is, but it can jump like nobody’s business.
