Reviewing & Ranking my 40th Intellivision game.
Ep 547: Astrosmash

 

I'm looking forward to the "Astrosmash vs. Astroblast" video, as I think the paddle controls will give the Atari version a big win.

I really agree with you on Astrosmash.  It's a go-to action game on the Intv, but it sure gets boring fast.  I don't like how easy it is to rack up extra ships.  They should have made it harder, or at least offered a "difficult" game variation that ramped up faster and offered no bonus ships.

Yeah, I just checked and when I was playing the game to record it, I had one game last almost 30 minutes! I need to clean up my paddles. How do you do it?

I'd rate the clean-up of Atari paddles as "easy".  It takes about 30 minutes.  There should be youtube videos that show how.  The hardest part is the disassembly of the potentiometer, but it's not bad.  I can do it for you if you want...just pay shipping both ways.  One other tip -- skip any q-tips and cotton balls, they just get stuck on the little metal fingers.  I use soapy water and a soft toothbrush.
