That's just the background footage. Here's the actual game (albeit emulated).

Wow. Thanks! Are those polygonal graphics? Cool. I'd really like to play that game.

Combining low-res bit-mapped graphics with those backgrounds would make a game look like it had subliminal messages.

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 though, as they end is near, and they are watching us. Oh well, at least I like cheese.  

Getting serious though, that game did make me a little woozy after playing it for awhile. Perhaps that's the same wooziness I get after playing first-person shooters like Metroid Prime, or Medal of Honor. I played it a little last night, and didn't have any nightmares, nor did I have any trouble whatsoever falling asleep. I wouldn't say the game is addicting, though it is rather fun and interesting to play. And I certainly don't have any aversion to video games now, as I intend to play MLB 14: The Show on my PS4 right after I feed the dog. 

But then again, this is a remake, and not the actual ROM of the 1981 game. If you do download it, I suggest going into the README file to find out how to mess with the higher functions. Turn on everything it offers to get the full experience. 

And definitely stay away from this if you're prone to seizures. 


If thesr forums had a "thumbs up", "thumbs down option, I'd be giving you a huge thumbs up. Great post!!!
