My name is Cyril Lachel and you're watching YOLO, the only show that's guaranteed to end in heartbreak. I'm taking the challenge to play every game with a You Only Live Once attitude. In this case, literally. I'll play exactly one life of every game, seeing just how far I can make it in a single turn.

Today we're looking at Shatterhand for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Developed by Natsume and published by Jaleco, this 1991 action game received generally strong reviews. The game sports "state-of-the-art graphics" and "8-direction scrolling." I hope the back of the box isn't wrong. Let's push start and find out.
