I was going to vote to break the tie breaker between these two games in the poll, but decided on this instead. Both rounds end on the 18th. So have at it, be safe!

user review on Amazon

Joey
4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect port
Reviewed in the United States on October 5, 2012
This is an impeccable port of the arcade game of the same name. If you want to dodge bottles, save Olive Oyles and plow through Bluto with spinach-fueled rage, then this, my reader, is the game for you. At least I'm pretty sure it's a port of the arcade game, it's been a long time since I played it.

boulderdash 797

popeye 21700

 

I'll try again if i have time. I met the original designer of boulderdash once and had a tour of his company at the time.

Probably should have asked him for some playing tips.

I can barely get past the 3rd level and when I did hit the fourth the damn butterfly kept blowing me up haha. I need to figure out some better strategy.

I think I was maybe 1 letter away from finishing the round 🙄  H-E-L-P. Even wore my @DuggerVideoGames socks today (I'll spare you a pic of my feet, they're Popeye). I guess I shouldn't be surprised that he's a beast at this game. My best is on the NES version, but this is a good one.

At the risk of "blaming the controller", I'll just say that I got this score after switching to a Genesis 3-button...

 

86,840 Round 6 (again, maybe 1 letter from finishing 🙄)

One thing to keep in mind when playing the NES version is that the spinach can respawns after you lose a life (doesn't do that in Colecovision version).
