What's your favorite game by CBS Electronics?

Recommended Posts

Wizard of Wor is good, used to be my favorite, though the new homebrew version pretty much relegated it to the dusty part of the shelf. 

Probably a toss up between Omega Race and Tunnel Runner now. Mountain King is a favorite on the 8-bit PCs, but the 2600 version is pretty hard to control.

Edited to say:

This was rude! I apologize! Going to stand in the corner now.

Speak for yourself (and maybe grab some coffee?). I like talking about the games I like from different vendors. Nothing wrong with threads like this.

That said... you might want to space it out a bit boneman. Let each discussion run it's course before starting a new one, and maybe tell us WHY you like a given game.

Solar Fox.

 

Tunnel Runner is visually impressive, and Mountain King is fun to explore the "hidden" area, but Solar Fox has them beat for playability.

 

(And yes - John is working on an all-new port of Gorf. All five levels plus AtariVox voices.)

I'm a hair-triggered pisspot and you made two very similar threads back to back. 
 

The people have spoken so I'll just sulk off to the side and play MOUNTAIN KING.

Ditto. I actually like it better than the arcade original

I'd forgotten Solar Fox, for some reason. That ones great too. Need to pop that in the system again and give it a whirl.

CBS made some good games. Not a lot of stinkers in the lineup.

Omega Race is my favorite CBS Electronics game.  I didn't discover it until the retro gaming age.  To me it's like a variation of Asteroids.

Yeah, I don't think they ever got as much credit as they deserved

Gotta go with Wizard of Wor.  Except for the lack of maze variety, they really nailed that one... right down to using the right controller for 1-player games, which made 10-year-old me start tearing his hair out until he finally RTFM!

 

Solar Fox and Mountain King are excellent runners-up.

I see nothing wrong with the two threads in question.  This kind of outburst is uncalled for.

I apologize for my rude outburst. Please feel to delete if you want cleaned up thread, or leave the quoted rudeness as an example for others not to follow.

Everyone has days they need to have a cup of coffee on before they post anything. Props for owning it and apologizing though. 👍
