I remember that game, much like the rest of the LJN games from the NES era they were all terrible with no explanation of what you're supposed to be doing.

Fun fact the same guy who started the long defunct LJN is the same guy that started the recently defunct THQ. Granted he's dead so I doubt he cares anymore anyway.

Do You Collect Games to PLAY or PUT on the SHELF?
To me, games are disposable entertainment. I buy, play and depending on replay value, typically uninstall to make room for newer ones. I don't see the point of cluttering my house with game related crap. I'm happy with Steam. Sitting out this console generation. I don't much see the point to buying a $400 box that's slower than my PC.

I buy every game to play, but I always buy physical. I don't know why I still don't trust digital purchases after all these years, but I just don't. Occasional cheap-o casual games, like under $5, I might get digitally, but anything I'm really going to invest time and energy into I vastly prefer physical copies.

That said, I do buy them to play them, so I don't care if they're used, don't have a case, etc. As long as they play and fit my nearly non-existent budget, that's fine. Buying a game to display on a shelf doesn't make any sense to me. Like displaying a sandwich you bought that you never intend to eat.
