Intellivision HSC Season 14 - Game 4 - Popeye

Recommended Posts

26,900. I used to watch people play this in the arcade quite a bit as a little guy. Always loved the artwork on the cabinet. It’s just a wee bit different seeing it on the Intellivision. Still kinda fun though.

The arcade version was tough. The Intellivision version was much easier. I used to play on skill level 1. Even that gets hard after you clear the first ship board.

I’ve always loved the NES version. Other ports frustrate me to varying degrees. And although the gameplay is based around not jumping, I’d totally try a version where you can.

Yes if there was ever a game that cried out for a jumping feature this is it... I kept pressing every button when I first played it then the awful disappointment hit me that there must not be a jumping feature..... 🙄👎

Minus 5 points for the 2600 in the bottom right of your picture. 😉

My Popeye Update: It's lame that Brutus can seemingly walk on air and go thru ceiling levels like he's non-corporeal... 🙄

 

Like with all the games we've played this season so far, my goal is 50k. 👍

 

 

34,800

Good gosh !!! The graphics and controls are worse than I remember. This final product is embarrassing! After Empire Strikes Back, this is the worst game in the collection. Leave it to the Parker Brothers collection. Everyone at Parkers Intellivision Division is still in hiding from 1982.
