Great work. I'd love to see a variation that played like Broderbund's Serpentine as well.

Interesting idea. But in Serpentine, you can backtrack over your own body to avoid enemies, which goes against Nibbler's core gameplay.

On the other hand, one could devise a two-player mode where biting the body of the other player cuts the other player's size, and this reduces the bonus points the other player gets at the end of the level. I'm not sure how well this mechanic would work in practice, but still, a two-player mode would be a nice feature. :)

Wow 2 games at the same time! Watching the video I was trying to figure out how one would die?

Tune in actual Colecovision game, or just dubbed on video?

Same question came up with Stay Frosty 2 video, the music was though to be added to the 2600 gameplay video when it is generated by the system itself!

No it's not the actual music for the game. But i can assure that the game has music :)

Never heard of Nibbler so I looked it up on YouTube...this could be a good CV game.

Front cover is pure genius -- Even back in the 80s I can't remember such beautiful artworks  :thumbsup:

I want this. We had a Nibbler arcade game down the street when I was a kid in the early 80's. I was like the only one who played it. :P

 

I always liked it.

I always purchase the Coleco arcade cabinet box style with each CollectorVision release, but it's going to be very tough not to buy the CBS style version as well this time considering the incredible box artwork.

 

Great job CollectorVision and I assume Crapahute. Can't wait for this release! :thumbsup:

Played Nibbler via MAME on my PSP...the PSP controls make the game a little aggravating, but it's a fun game. Almost passed the third board. Have to try it on MAME with a better controller.
