2013/8/6: Arcadia 2001: Astro Invader, Combat, Route 16

Good reviews.  I'm always very curious about these more obscure systems!  They really get my imagination going about how differently things could have worked out differently had these systems taken off....<br><br>Just curious -- have you ever considered picking up an APF M1000/MP1000 or a ...

2013/6/25: Fairchild Channel F: Baseball, Robot War/Torpedo Alley, Sonar Search

Sonar Search sounds very cool.  In fact, it sounds a shameless copy of the venerable board game "Code Name: Sector" -- which I highly recommend hunting down and playing, by the way, if you haven't already.<br><br>Also, I think scotland17's idea of separating out the reviews for "multicasts" is ...

2013/2/2: Colecovision: Heist, The, Rocky

I really don't know why manual writers always seem to make things as confusing as possible.  This game is one example.<br><br>Super Action Football is another example.  The "playbook" contains about 2 pages on how select a play, and about 20 pages of example plays.  The former is the ...

2013/2/2: Colecovision: Heist, The, Rocky

Yep, that's the way the manual explains it.  So I think the strategy is to quickly move to your "advantage" track, get a quick punch in, and move back out.  There's also hints in the manual about using certain types of blocks/punches depending on your power meters, but trying to remember t...

2013/2/2: Colecovision: Heist, The, Rocky

What a coincidence!  I was just rereading all the Super Action Game manuals (baseball, football, boxing) a few weeks ago, trying to understand all the subtleties to the games.<br><br>According to the Boxing manual, there is actually supposed to be some strategy to the game.  It s...

Missing Atari 2600 Reviews?

I personally think Star Trek on the Colecovision one of the best home conversions of the arcade game.  But I'll defer final judgement to the expert in the house (i.e. you )

Hey Critic....  In addition to Spitfire Attack (2600) which I already mentioned, another biggie that I see missing is Star Trek (Colecovision)....
