Jacob, I think you forgot to add my points from Carnival. I was at 57 already before Carnival. 

I don't think he's done an update that includes Carnival (he'd normally put that at the front page of the next game, Beamrider) but I'll do a quick unofficial one in a few when I wrap up work for the day. 

 

Edit - Unofficial update tacked onto the Carnival thread, congrats on moving up to 4th, Matt!  And gezkc has totally closed the gap on me after I threatened to start running away with it there!  LOL :)

Back on topic, another great choice for HSC!  I enjoyed the hell out of this on the 5200, but never have played the Intellivision version, so looking forward to this round!

And sadly I don't own this game.  Not really fired up to go out and buy it either.  You guys enjoy...

This version isn't too shabby, but why does the music restart all the time? Grab a heart? Restart the music. Punch a bottle? Restart. Fall? Restart. Brutus jumps? Restart. I might just have to start playing this one on mute too, haha. Shame, I always loved the music and sfx to this game.

Its a pretty fun conversion, graphics a bit blocky, but plays nice and not too easy or difficult.

Parker Brothers and Coleco seem to cause Intellivision a sound illness. 🤔

Well, you could never accuse this game of not trying to grab your attention! It's very loud, very colorful - and good fun actually! 

 

It took me a while to work out how to go up stairs (just press up, not diagonal) but other than that, the controls aren't too bad. 

 

I'd never played this before - thanks for adding it to the HSC, Jacob. It's a pretty decent game!

Controls are gettin to me. Those dang stairs! I'm also having a pretty hard time getting that barrel on Brutus, which I can do in the NES version. I also had a crazy glitch on this level- after I ate the spinach and punched Brutus, I went to climb some stairs (ugh) and I ended up disappearing off the right side of the screen. When I finally reappeared, the sea hag got me. Weird.

Totally unrelated question… Does anyone here have an extra Intellivision Pac-Man cartridge?  I’d be happy to buy it, please message me if so, thank you!

I cant figure out the stairs on this level,I would like to try it when I have 3 lives left instead of 1.

Fun game for the most part!

I was a huge Popeye fan back in the day. I got this for my birthday shortly after it came out. I played the heck out of it back then, but not much since. I think it holds up pretty well.

The Popeye theme at the beginning and in between the levels is much better than Frogger. The Parker Bros programmers seemed to have a better grasp of the system by this time. I'm bothered more by the repetitive nature of the music during gameplay rather than the fact that it keeps reseting. I don't have a problem with the stairs (probably because I learned to play it as kid). Its colorful and nice that Popeye and Brutus are multicolored, but there is quite a bit of flicker!
