It has a Sega Genesis vibe to it. I'm having fun with it, even though my skills are starting to degrade in my old age, lol!

Sure thing!

I should also mention that -- in addition to reissuing games like Stadium Mud Buggies, Spiker, and Slap Shot -- the Blue Sky Rangers are publishing a bunch of unreleased Intellivision games that were developed during the console's original era, like King of the Mountain, Deep Pockets Super Pro Pool & Billiards, and Party Line, among others. You can see a list here:

https://intvfunhouse.com/bsr/

Some games on that page don't seem to be currently available, like Brickout and Takeover, but the ones I mention above are. Note that Party Line (the current release) combines Blow Out + Hard Hat + Space Cadet in one cartridge, which was the original plan back in 1984, so that saves space and $$$ vs. buying the games individually.

I haven't played my copy of Party Line yet, but King of the Mountain is really fun from what I remember, and Deep Pockets is fairly impressive.

How about some middling to bad games?

The Last of Us II.
SNK Heroines Tag Team.

The SNK game is so silly I would love to see Dave flex his humorous muscles with it. The game is not very good but sometimes one must take one for the team. Lots of things to comment on here.

Last of Us II is definitely an acquired taste.

Just realized the Neo Geo Pocket Color section is missing a few games, such as Metal Slug 2 NGPC and Puzzle Link 2, for samples.

I haven't played it myself, but I would like to see Dave sweat playing Ring Fit Adventure! (Switch)

I think this may be necessary to have any chance of fitting into my Daisy Dukes' this summer.

I just realized SNES SimCity has not been reviewed...

Possibly the best version of classic SimCity, and arguably the best SimCity ever...

And utterly addictive -- an easy way to lose 6 hours in the blink of an eye. Great music too.

If SimCity is one of the best and most time-stealing SNES games, how about a twofer SNES review with that and one of the shortest and worst SNES games, Race Drivin'? :D

Speaking of bad games: the next time a Genesis craving comes 'round, make time for Onslaught, a truly terrible game. It takes about 30 minutes to realize just how bad it is, because initially it seems sort of OK...but...!
