2015/1/18: Odyssey 2: K.C. Munchkin!, Demon Attack, Amok!

You have Conquest of the World upside down. I tried to play the board game as a kid and it was, as you say, dreck. Now, the video game part... basically combat, but with tanks and planes and submarines against each other, especially the way the subs would disappear under water then reemerge and beco...

How did you not compare the Arcadia version of Turtles to the excellent Odyssey 2 version???!

Can you fix your Mario Brox. XE review?

Thanks. Am I the only person who enjoys playing the game alone and trying to rack up every possible point?  That's why I prefer the slower versions like XE solo, especially on the higher levels where everything just feels like dumb luck on the faster versions... But if you are going to play mar...

Can you fix your Mario Brox. XE review?

Look at the turtles, much closer in the XE version.  Other animated characters were also fuller in the XE version; check the flashing crap legs in the NES version.  Yes, the platforms are very different in the XE version, and some of the colors are different too.  But other details, l...

Can you fix your Mario Brox. XE review?

The C 64 version has flicker, nothing to stand on when you are resurrected, and the platforms don't buckle when you hit them with your head.  But at least the turtles and other creatures aren't squished or otherwise distorted, the music is nice (along with very similar sounds to the arcade) and...

Can you fix your Mario Brox. XE review?

You know I just took another look at the Atarisoft C64 version (which I guess was a prototype) on an emulator, too lazy to boot up the real thing.  Yeah, the XE version is by far still the best.  And it doesn't run all that fast, but maybe that was the emulator...

Can you fix your Mario Brox. XE review?

One-player, I just enjoy trying to time everything perfectly, and get every coin.  I like being able to stop and look around the screen and carefully plan my moves.  That just plays better slow.  But two players are definitely more fun with a faster game...

Can you fix your Mario Brox. XE review?

The sound in the NES version was nice.  But the graphics???  Very comparable to the 7800 version and a major step down from the arcade (and XE).  You LOVE squished turtles!  And I guess you love flicker too.  It was really a disappointing; the NES version could have been bet...
