Popeye is a fun game on the 2600.  I do have the Intellivision version also but I was not impressed with it, so I agree with you about the game.  Would love to see a 7800 version of the game!

The 7800 would've been a great system for it!

PS-My apologies. I didn't realize one of the rankings in the manual is considered an offensive word in the UK, as it was not treated that way in the US.

I don't have Skateboardin' for the 2600, I have Super Skateboardin' for the 7800, though.  I do agree with you the player looks like Pitfall Harry!  Maybe Pitfall Harry Jr. wearing shorts! 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Ah yes, Super Skateboardin'!  This is one of those OK games.  Fun but not something I'd play every day.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

Taz is a game I haven't played.  Looks like a simple fun with nice graphics.

I have enjoyed Basketbrawl.  The characters are large and drawn well.  If it only had  POKEY chip!

A LOT of games could've used the Pokey.  :(

Yes, the POKEY was what GCC originally had intended to see in those carts (or something similar for better sound).

Originally, the Pokey was supposed to be part of the 7800 system, but supposedly, they ran out of room on the mother baord.
The backup plan was to make a smaller, cheaper sound chip called the Gumby (get it?) that would go in the carts themselves, but that too never materialized.  Oh well.

Meep! Meep!

Yes, their intent was to make the Gumby for the carts but then Tramiel happened. 

I did not know there was a Road Runner arcade game until a few years ago.   I thought the 2600 game was an original game when I first saw it!
