Arcade Game: Popeye (1982 Nintendo)


A platform/run and jump game featuring characters from the famous King Features Syndicate cartoon show of the same name. The aim of the game is to rescue Popeye’s girlfriend, Olive Oyl. This is achieved by catching a set number of objects thrown down by Olive from the top of the screen; such as hearts, letters and musical notes. Popeye is constantly pursued in his quest by love rival, Bluto (a.k.a. Brutus). Popeye must either run away from Bluto or grab some spinach and punch him off the screen (he will, of course, return).
Should any of Olive Oyl’s items fail to be caught, they will fall into the water at the bottom of the screen. Popeye will then have only a few seconds to retrieve the object or a life is lost. Several other Popeye characters also make an appearance in the game; namely Wimpy, Sweet-pea, the Sea Hag and her Vulture, whose name is Bernard. The game’s three levels are the dock scene, the street scene and the shipboard scene. These repeat with increasing difficulty.

Note: This time No cheat used. Only save states were used throughout the game.

After the game was beaten, it endlessly repeats level 1 over and over. Level 10 becomes Level A and Level 11 becomes Level B and so on. The game is endless.

    If spinach does give you super powers then India would have whooped the rest of the world's arses.

    This was where I first heard of Popeye… yeah, I never saw the cartoons. When I saw a Popeye cartoon on Cartoon Network in the 90s, I was like, "WHAT?"

    Have you been watching Bunnicula recently? About the scene where Bunnicula eats spinach and start beating up that purple monster, well it really is a Reference to Ol Popeye here. You should see that scene of Bunnicula the Vampire Rabbit. What do you say?

    I was looking at a retro Nintendo from game intensity that has 500+ games on it for only $49.99 . You can get it with either AV or HDMI wire hook ups. I was hoping this game, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out & all the Mario games among others are on it. I emailed them for the list. Still waiting for their reply.

    I loved this game. My brother actually discovered glitch on one of the screens. It made Bluto continually fly across the screen on one of the levels. Been so long I can’t remember which screen & how he did it.
