Would anyone mind comparing 5200 M.U.L.E. to the NES version?

Recommended Posts

I didn't buy a M.U.L.E. when I should have (5200.) Is the NES version close? If not, whats the 5200 version run?

 

The 5200 version is a straight conversion of the Atari 800 version. I haven't played the NES version.

I think that was one of the games converted and put on cart but never dumped as a rom.

 

I could swear I read that here in another thread when looking for the Fast Eddie conversion

Bryan did make a limited edition run of MULE cartridges. He also released the rom image, you can find it here:

Probably in a forum post here too, somewhere.

I like the 5200/8-bit version better. I have both. The NES one looks funky, and looses most of the charm of the original IMHO.

 

The music on the the 5200 one is great, one of the most memorable tunes of the era. Used to get it stuck in my head after we had a neighborhood get together to play it as a kid.

The only thing that equals the Atari version is the C64 version naturally. Though the SID music on the game is a classic too.

C64 version is missing something IMO. I think the music is better on the Atari version, and the graphics are "shinier" somehow. Especially evident in the intro.

I was just gonna say that, I have both versions, C-64 and XL; they screwed up the C-64 title music, and the gameplay wins on the XL slightly.

The 4-player mode? Only 2 joystick ports on the 64... or was there some workaround for it? (Paddles, keyboard?)

C64 uses keyboard for two of the players during the buy/sell part. I think you trade joysticks with players 1 or 2 during your actual turn IIRC.

Yep, you just use one joystick during the land sections. During auction, you have two sticks and two keyboard if need be. If I get myself a 5200, I'll be able to compare C64 to Atari then finally.
