Circus Atari. Atari 2600 Review


This game uses the Atari analog paddles.  You play the role of 2 acrobats in a circus.  you control a teter totter / trampoline?  You goal is to pop the balloons that are scrolling along the top of the screen.  The button on the paddle controller will flip the trampoline around (which is sometimes required).  The purpose of the game is nothing more than to accumulate score.  It is an OK game to play but it does get boring.  The problem with the game overall is the fact that there is not much going on and I find myself "zombied" out playing it.  It is not a game that I would play very often and overall I give it a 6 out of 10 stars.  I am being generous with the rating due to the fact that most of the Atari 2600's library is complete shovelware.

Great Golf Sega Master System Review


Typical 8 bit golf game here.  Nothing special.  I am not a big fan of golf games at all.  This one seems to play really slow and sluggish.  It seems to be about the same as any other 8 bit golf game.  I don't really have much to say about it.  Sorry.  I give it a 4 out of 10 stars.  Average to a bit below average.
