I've never played Loco-motion before but it looks a really interesting game. I'm a big fan of Happy Trails but I can see this has a bit more to it tactically. 

 

Here's my best attempt so far. I'm going to be away for a week so won't be able to get any more tries in for a while. 

 

Loco-motion: 29,105

And my first Happy Trails effort. I totally messed up halfway through this game and went down to 1 life so I'm surprised I managed to hang on for a fairly decent score!

Are you taking a train or a covered wagon to go away for a week?

Have fun!

Never played either game, but listened to the Intellivisionaries talk about them both for about 40 hours.  ;)

 

Will have to give them a try.

Happy Trails to me!

I really need to get better than 10k before I quit on this one. Accidentally loaded the picture twice.

I better stay away from technology and stick to retro video games.

First time playing, next time will be a bit faster. And I gotta make sure I pop in my Happy Trails cart before the week is through...

I can't believe I've never played Loco-motion before, but having read a bit about it now, it seems Mattel were forced to launch it with virtually no fanfare and at a discounted price because Happy Trails had already come out and been a big success. I guess it explains why I missed it at the time - I didn't even know it existed! 

 

Having played the two games now, there are lots of things I like about Loco-motion but I have to say I still prefer Happy Trails.

 

The ability to change direction in Happy Trails is a massive difference between the two games and I much prefer being able to do that over the random "panic" button in Loco-motion. I also think Happy Trails has better controls - speeding up and moving tiles feels snappier and the graphics and colours are more pleasing (to me at least!). There's more strategy involved in Loco-motion because of the variety of enemies and situations you can find yourself in, but I personally prefer Happy Trails' simpler gameplay. 

 

Anyway, enough of my blabbering, here's my latest scores for the two very similar but different games:

 

Happy Trails: 146,144

Loco-motion : 74,325
