2021/4/4: Arcadia 2001: Battle, Funky Fish

Postby VideoGameCritic » April 4th, 2021, 10:53 am

Check out my latest set of Arcadia 2001 reviews. Pretty obscure titles here. Comments?

I also went ahead and paragraph-ized the entire Arcadia 2001 section. Doesn't it look nice?

Your new formatting looks nice. The screenshots, less so.

Between the pain for the eyes, and the pain for the thumbs, I think I'm actually grateful for the American crash.

One mistake: one date is '83 and the other is '93. I'm hoping '93 is the typo?

Yeah, sounds like a typo... where are you seeing the 1993?

Funky Fish, second sentence.

There were a lot of old titles brought back for portable and aftermarket, so it almost made sense in context. But I've never met a single Arcadia 2001 fan.

Second paragraph, last two lines. Your friend Sudz decides it is a design feature. Then you go on to say, nice try Scott. So is it Sudz or Scott? Or is it Sudz Scott?

It is interesting that https://videogamecritic.com/arcadiael.htm?s=3#rev5487 and https://videogamecritic.com/2600ff.htm?s=3#rev204 get different scores whilst essentially being the same game.

You hated FF on the 2600 but kind of liked it on Arcadia. It would be interesting to have a comparison between the two. FF for the Arc is a hilarious review. Full of whit and verve. The 2600 review is a darker tale where you express sheer disgust at this most boring of titles. (it sounds okay to me but I like SeaQuest). The only funny line in the who review is the very cheeky FF is available from AA, grab your copy today! Who would want to grab a copy of FF after that review?

Funky Fish is a port of an arcade game made by Sun Electronics (later Sunsoft!). If it had a license from Takhan, that was probably the distributor, who was later Tecmo!

Sounds like a nickname. His friend Scott, aka Sudz, said it was a design feature. I don't think it's an error, though maybe I missed some sarcasm somewhere. It's happened before.

The more I read these Arcadia reviews, the more I appreciate never investing in one.

Ratings are relative; scores are based on other games on the system. The 2600 has a larger selection of decent games.

Funky Fish sounds fun. I guess this is an example of good concept/poor execution?
