Sort of off-topic for this thread, I guess, but I saw KAZ's post and was reminded about the forthcoming Donkey Kong Arcade cartridge and it got me to thinking a bit. Now, I do not have the ColecoVision Super Module... I kinda want one, but that is another topic for another day. I have never purchased any homebrew; and with respect to arcade versions, in this day and age, I am sort of nonplussed by the notion of "arcade perfect" homebrew ports. I mean, I remember, as many of you do I am sure, feeling that arcade perfection was the pinnacle of imagination/achievement with respect to home system ports. It was the unachievable dream.
But today, in an age of MAME, I can play the arcade games themselves, basically perfectly rendered, without worrying about a "port." Thus, I am less intrigued by the notion of getting "arcade perfect" versions of games for the ColecoVision. I actually remember feeling a certain amount of disappointment when I saw how close the Mario Bros. port to the ColecoVision wound up being to the arcade version... what I was hoping for was a "ColecoVision" version of Mario Bros., that would be in keeping with the style of the other Mario-based Nintendo CV releases, Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Junior.
Does this make sense to anyone else or am I just a lone voice in the wilderness here?
