Both of these reviews read as though the grades would be higher than they were! Regardless, they sound like fun titles to try at some point, even if they're not great.

Great reviews! I also docked Side Trak a letter grade because it's so tough on the hands, but it's still one of my favorite homebrews to play...again and again! Unfortunately I have to agree with your grade of Moonsweeper. It's not as well designed as the 2600 version.

it seemed you liked the Atari 2600 version of Moonsweeper better despite the Colecovisions versions graphics being much better

Its interesting, both of these games are very appealing - one for audio and one for graphics.

But upon further inspection the gameplay is suspect. And let's face it, gameplay is what ultimately prevails in the longrun.

Still, I think collectors would be thrilled to own both of these.

The Coleco Side Trak is greatly enhanced over the arcade version - yes no song on the arcade version, just engine & siren noises, it was B&W too.
