From my interview with Todd Marshall:
|Video Game Selection Center|
These Video Gaming Centers were made by Frank Mayer & Assoc in 1982 for Sears. Some overages were given to employees and Sears also got rid of the publicly played units. Few of these were ever made as I worked there during that era. I have one for sale as of 2-8-17! The computer can be set internally for "full length play" by the way. Retro city!
While not a bad game the controls are very sluggish and there is nothing to help the player last. Whatever our bad guy did he will eventually meet his demise. I did enjoy the dancing devil when the game was over.
I can't get over the amount of detail and in-depth game action Robot Tank has. Alan did a remarkable job with this program. A really good game.
|160 in 1 Game|
I am trying to retrieve the true game list of this cartridge, because the instructions booklet titles are a not very accurate.
Played it for the first time this weekend. Love it.
Maybe the best Defender-Clone on this System. Even more Fun than Chopper Command!
Sadly, no one seems to know about this Game's existence!
Funny, that the Game begins with a "Boss-Fight" and then starts with the "regular" Game...
An underrated and unknown Classic!
Man, this Game really took a lot of Beating up till now. Can't understand it. Surely, it lacks some technical polishing, but I think it's not half as bad as always said.
Here in Germany, Kids couldn't go into the Arcades and play the original Game. Arcades were only for Adults. The only Version of Pac-Man we knew, was this one...and we loved it! We couldn't compare it to the Arcade-Version, but even then I wouldn't say it's gruesome. There are a lot of 2600-Games with worse Graphics and worse Gameplay.
I still play it from Time to Time on harder Game-Variations and Difficulty-Settings.
I'd say it's a 7.5 of 10.
