ColecoVision Longplay [011] Smurfs: Rescue in Gargamel




http://www.longplays.org

Played by: Roja Calor

Just to be nice, I play all four skill levels to show that it is not totally a basic game. Your goal is to make a series of jumps to score points and stay alive as you can die in the stupidest ways possible.

    I'm old enough to remember when those graphics seemed like jaw-dropping cartoon-quality animation.

    Totally didn’t realize how repetitive this game was when I was little. Painfully repetitive by the looks of it.

    Being 6 when all of these great games came out. Smurfs, Zaxxon, Turbo, Donkey Kong, Mousetrap. So much fun and simple. This paved the way for Mario Bros.. Ahh, The 80s..

    Born in october 1971, i saw the game playing at store. I couldn't believe my eyes. Those beautiful colored, smooth graphics, we could play an animated movie for real. I still feel the excitation inside just like i couldn't live without playing that.
    I did not know Nintendo yet, even it was written behind de coleco box, under the donkey kong screen.
    This is history.
    But as first system, i chose the one which blew my mind, the Vectrex and i still got it, full set, cib, in 2020. 😀

    J’avais ce jeu mais très déçu car hyper répétitif. Sinon j’ai adoré HERO.

    I had the Atari 2600 version of this game as a kid. This look waaaaay better.

    This has to be the happiest game. Nobody is trying to kill you and you are just walking around freely.

    I remember first seeing this game when I was 14 (I’m old). The graphics and music back then blew me away. The smurf is extremely detailed even for a CV game.

    These graphics were mind blowing back in 1982 – the best graphical representation of a cartoon (as opposed to Dragon’s Lair, which was a videodisc) created up to that point. 😉

    I grew up with the 2600 version, discovered the ColecoVision and this version of the game through emulation. The ColecoVision was truly a monster of a console for 1982, and these graphics would have been top notch even for the later NES and Master System. Just a pity that this version featured fewer level types and no real difficulty progression – it's missing the spider cave and snake river, and difficulty is only governed by the initial difficulty selection (saving Smurfette doesn't increase the difficulty the next time around).

    There's something weird about this game, I know it kind of sucks because almost no content and totally minimal gameplay but I like it 🙂

    I used to love this game. I can't remember, but isn't ducking/squatting down an option rather than walking backwards to avoid the bat?
