Hello everyone!

First, I'm sorry, I'm going to talk about INTELLIVISION and why I changed my avatar for this month of December.


Today it's starting a great competition which is going to run through all December.

You can buy the cartridge with box, manual, overlays etc but it is also distributed as rom for free! Emulator configured is included!


The main website is here: http://carolvsghost....pg_contest.html

But you can post your scores here, in AtariAge. It's in this thread: http://atariage.com/...ition-december/

There are many prizes for all skill levels players.

My new avatar has the patch (combined with a botton of Intv brotherhood) I won last year.


This year you can win patches, commemorative mugs and for first place, a custom game made by the programmer!


Well, that's it! It's always good to play with you all and will be a blast to bring you to the Christmas Carol vs. the World competition!

This game seems pretty fun in its concept, but with the large bubble head, unforgiving hit detection, and limited onscreen real estate, the controls just don't provide the precision this game sorely needs in order to be really great, IMO. Whoever designed this game and decided to use an 8-way joystick rather than a trackball really screwed the pooch, methinks.

93,470. Fun, light game (which really makes it the odd one out among the rest of Midway Arcade Treasures), but I have some nitpicks:


- that the grease blobs suddenly decrease your viscosity and make you go sliding around at high speed when you're trying to be precise.


- that the broom is so finicky to aim.


- that the maid seems to not give up the broom sometimes--how are you supposed to guarantee getting it? Hit her from a specific angle?
