Re: 2017/7/15: Colecovision: Oil's Well, Pitfall II: Lost Caverns

Very nice reviews! Oil's Well is a favorite of mine and I agree about Pitfall II... I find a bit more frustrating than the Atari 2600 version. The worst part about Pitfall2 for the Atari 2600 is not being able to duck. There's a couple parts in the game where birds and bats come at you from the rig...

Re: Polybius

Welp, I decided to download the 2007 remake game. Contrary to what they might say, it doesn't make you go crazy, it doesn't make you forget your name. I can still remember that my name is Ronald Reagan, but I can't seem to remember how a skunk manages to sing Elvis songs. It's scary out there thoug...

Oil's Well looks and sounds like it'd be a lot of fun. Does anybody know of any decent ColecoVision emulators out there? I'd love to give this game a try.

Re: Review Wish List

Three games I'd like to see The Critic review in the future: 1) The Guardian Legend (NES) Part Zelda-esque top down RPG. Part vertical scrolling shooter. And a lost classic in my humble opinion. 2) The Magic of Schererzade (NES) A very obscure action/RPG title from the late 80's and early 90's. I do...
