The graphics are kind of weird.The isometric backdrop is nice and detailed, and then the sprites kinda look like they're from an LCD game.

Hooray, an Intellivision review! I haven't played Congo Bongo in a while but my impression was similar to yours: graphically it's sort of impressive, but the gameplay is brutally unforgiving. The No Swear Gamer on YouTube did a recent set of Congo Bongo reviews that ended up on much the same page.

Glad to hear that you're willing & able to review rare Intellivision games via flash cart when necessary. I look forward to Spiker and Stadium Mud Buggies in due time. :mrgreen: One thing that's nice is that most of the rarest games didn't have (official) overlays, so you won't be missing out in that department.

Unbelievable how the conversion was horribly botched on EVERY SYSTEM except for Colecovision. In fact, Colecovision is the only one with three out of the four screens. Better off playing the arcade game itself.

That was kind of a random thing. I really like that restaurant in Ocean City MD and it seemed to fit. I don't have a deal with them or anything.

Careful. Linking to off-topic sites can make you look like a spammer to search engines. :evil:
