Intellivision HSC Season 15 - Game 9 - Happy Trails w/ Loco-Motion Bonus

Recommended Posts

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

WOW!!! Great scores gez. They are both incredible... I can't even come close to getting 1/3 of these scores on either game. I've never been good at thinking quickly, IE twitch type of games.... 🥺
