I Buy this game for a dollar or quarter
Alright this is smash Tv . I Am surprised there was no reviews of this instant classic Back in The Day this game probably Made Williams and The Arcade Boat loads of Money and leaving tears of Joy all the way to the bank lol. First off I will give some tips that I think would be helpful.
Ok First tip would Be You see those question marks on the map of each level after you get through the first part of each studio Those Are Hidden Rooms Were you can Get Extra points If you found 1 of those rooms The Host MC will say Big Money Big prizes I love it and it will have a fancy room design
Another main thing you will need Is The power ups . Because While the standard shot works and kills people it ant very helpful against Like the 50 people coming at you at once. And Plus you will Need The more Powerful Guns for The Bosses.
Plot The Plot of Smash Tv Means You are the next lucky contestant to be on the Game show.So As The Host says Big money Big prizes You mainly Kill all enemies while getting The Prizes. The Prizes themselves are used for Bonus Points at the end of the level after you completed it. Red and Blue Prizes The Guy shouts Yeah!. If its a Yellow present The lady goes Woo . Same with The Cash in the game it is also Used For Bonus Points at the end of the level to increase your high score.
Graphics Taking a look at this Classic by Williams and also on Midway Arcade classics Its good old Classic fashioned 2d All Stages Have a good amount of Detail and Enemies Trust me This game its gonna have A military of Enemies coming at you in each level. Sprites for The Most Part are nicely done as well They have a nice solider look and feel to them which works great for the games style Rather then just looking like some random person The Bosses are also done well too I'm gonna describe them in words. Mutoid Man A crazy Robot machine like human .Scar face Happens To look like The Face Of Shriek at least to me . Die Co bros Pretty much 2 Cobra's that are known of another form of snakes that are huge . Evil Mc Pretty Much A harder Version of Mutoid Man But with the appearance of The Game host .Once you beat him he has a lot of presents that increase your score, . Graphics gets a 10 They look really nice and Bosses also stages look great in this 90's game
Sound Most sound effects are that of The Crowd and you Shooting the Heck out of The Enemies and As well The host speech. Even with that said it was pretty advanced for the time because No early arcade game like this 1 had voice samples .Soundtrack I like how Dark and Creepy it sounds It goes perfectly With the Dark style of Graphics this game has A great amount of bass to kick up the music and keep it fresh. Sound gets a 10 its the main part of voice samples That made it pretty advance considering no other game had this at the time And the Soundtrack Fits perfect with this Style of game
Addictiveness This is why I said This game made Williams Boat loads of money and left Tears of Joy going to the bank lol . Because This Had 50 Enemies that were very fast and made you look like a slow poke. It was fast quickness And Challenge of The Enemies Bosses and Neat Power ups that made this game Fun to Play back in The Day . Addictiveness gets a 9 for the reason said above
Story Explained in plot I will rate it a 8 because it already clears what your supposed to do in the game.
Depth Now you think possibly Shooters Were only Like four levels long and not a whole lot of enemies were there. The 4 levels were the right case in the game. But the Enemies in case was not . Cause They Went And Pushed the limit of enemies in this game Because their are Like 150 enemies or less in Each Route with their speedy quickness .Depth gets a 7
Difficulty This is a Really hard Game do to The Many Enemies Coming and Hitting you at once Because your are slow from the beginning the enemies are fast. Even with A speed shoe power up Because you will never now Which Direction they will come out of. And not to mention You can die like in 30 seconds in this game Also That The Bosses are pretty hard themselves. Controls work good with a Keyboard But in A game Like This I would really Recommend a Game pad Because this is 1 of The games that requires Precession Moving .And not to mention a Keyboard just does not ideal for this type of game. Considering The Actual Arcade Cabinet Made you use two Joysticks 1 for moving 2 for fire .So that's why I recommend a game pad for this type of game. Difficulty gets a 8
Overall Even with the insane hard difficulty That made this game a great classic That Made The arcades Boat loads of money. Like in The Game Williams Must had Enjoyed their wealth of Quarters from people getting into this game. Also various home ports such as nes snes Genesis Amiga And other systems Got a release of this great classic.Overall a 9,6
