This is a good game for the summer. Very seasonally correct!

Just got my all-time high score of 36900.

The gameplay is fast and has just the right amount of randomness (when you bounce around).

The sound effects however are pretty annoying.

I had this game as a little kid but I never remember playing it. I just watched a video of it now and the gameplay confused me, so I imagine I was really confused as a kid. And I think I actually confused Journey Escape with the Kool Aid Man game all the time, because the Mighty Manager reminded me of Koolaid Man:

(And I always thought the Scarab was a school bus. I literally thought the game was about some guy running in space to catch a school bus....)

Haha. He does look an awful like the Kool Aid Man, dosen't he? I mean, have you ever seen both of them in the same room at the same time? Perhaps Kool aid Man was moonlighting in this game in the middle of shooting commercials..... :D

These are actually images from the Intellivision version, which I also need to revisit.

I'm confused.. You mean the ones I posted? Those are Journey Escape for 2600. The Mighty Manager reminded me of Kool Aid man when I was a really young kid.

My bad - I didn't read the original message. Just glanced at the graphics.
