This is a comparison
Q*Bert This is going to be a comparison piece between the three most popular console ports of Q*Bert from the second generation of game consoles. We will be comparing the Atari 2600, Mattel Intellivision, and Colecovision ports of Q*Bert. Despite all being the same game there are a hefty amount of differences between the three. But the outcome of this review is...

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons

This game is great!
Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Time for the Intellivision! AD&D has got to be my favorite game for the Intellivision. This is one of the granddaddies of adventure games so the plot isn't too compelling. Here's the entire plot in one sentence: Three archer dudes go to the legendary Cloudy Mountain to recover the Crown of Kings from the evil Winged Dragons. It's a nice basic plot tha...

Flash Gordon

This game is Good!
Flash Gordon This game shouldn't have been made. A game based on a 1980 movie that was based on a forty year old TV show, this should not have happened, and it's almost a crime for it to be this good. I've never watched the show, even though as I'm writing this I'm staring a a two VHS Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe set that I bought forever ago and still haven't w...

Open Sesame

This game is meh
Open Sesame I bought this game expecting the European version, which is the version that had the only other voice sampling apart from Quadrun. What I didn't expect though, was 'I Want My Mommy', a game released in America by Zimag. The version I own is a Taiwan Cooper bootleg which as far as I can tell is exactly the same as the Zimag version. I know these Taiwan Coo...

This game is bad
Coconuts Telesys wasn't known for making very good games, their quality was hit or miss at the best of times. Coconuts unfortunately is a big 'ol miss, in more ways than one. This game takes a similar concept to Telesys' other smash hit game, Fast Food and tweaks it a little, I'll get to that in the game-play section, since I feel this review may be lacking some l...

This game sucks!
Warplock This game is just plain awful. Game-play , sounds, and graphics are just plain awful. I will attempt to make it more clear in this review just how this game sucks. Data Age weren't known for making the best games, or even average games, in fact they mostly made crap. Games like Sssnake, Bugs, Airlock, and Journey: Escape, tend to be on the bottom of the b...

This game is okay
Bowling I'm feeling lazy today, so I'm just going to review Atari's Bowling. This has got to be one of the most basic games on the 2600, both in game-play, sound, and graphics. But this isn't necessarily a bad thing. I find that the game gets it's message across rather well, that message being bowling. Sorry If this is a short review but there isn't much TO revie...

This game is meh
Pac-Man This game is a glorious mess. And despite being one of the most commonly mocked and disliked games in the Atari library, I don't mind it. Let me just say this up front, I don't think that this is a 'Pac-Man' game, I think it's a Pac-Man style game. Same name different game, each share similar game-play and graphics (Sounds are not applicable here), but At...

Gangster Alley

This game is bad
Gangster Alley This game oozes unique. It is if not one of the only shooting gallery style games on the system, we're not counting Task Force by Froggo since it's the same code. The game was put out by Spectravision (Spectravideo in Europe) who are mostly known for Chase the Chuckwagon, Mangia and Bumper Bash, when it comes to rarity these guys are all over the spectrum...

This game is meh
Golf This review may be a bit biased because I actually like this game, a LOT! I like the simplicity of the game and how it achieves what it sets out to accomplish... Which is golf on the Atari. Many golf games from this generation take after golf on the NES, top down perspective, selectable clubs, wind, and giving the green invisible hills and bumps to bring...
