---- Popeye news just in ----

So I recently got hold of the original promo flyer for Popeye and it would seem that originally there was a 6th animal to rescue ....a zebra !!

I don't know what Mr.Zebra did to upset the designers but he never made it into the production game :tut:

Quite an in depth look at Popeye gameplay.

I don't want to come across like some sort of Popeye obsessive ..... but the guy does get a few things wrong ...:rolleyes: ...he calls Mr Leopard a tiger ffs !! And he says the Pop Bumpers switches count in all the Fight Bluto modes ...they don't.

Here's a gameplay video @Matt Adams uploaded - taken on my machine when he had loan of it.

He actually has a really decent game - finishing with a none too shabby 755 million and not far off Wizard Mode ..just needed to complete the Fight modes :clap: Incredibly he finds Swee Pea on the upper playfield video mode !! ....6:00 mark ..... also Rescues all the Animals at one point, gets a couple of extra balls. Not bad at all for an old dude who spends most of his days playing Whodunnit :rofl:
