Two Games from my Youth – Pocket Sized

Burger time and TMNT Turtle Fighter

Super Impulse sent me these two World’s Smallest video games from their Tiny Arcade Series for free to play with and review. Opinions are my own.

Back when I was a kid one of my favorite games on my old TI 994A computer was BurgerTime. In it you ran around as a Chef Peter Pepper and had to assemble burgers by walking across the various pieces of a burger to make them drop. At the same time Mr. Hot Dog, Mr. Egg and Mr. Pickle are trying to chase you down and prevent you from assembling the burgers. You can drop them down with the layers of the burger or drop layers of the burger on them for bonus points. The game is a hard one but fun. The little video game has the classic images on the sides and on the front light up marquee. Controls are simple, up and down and you can throw pepper at your pursuers to prevent them from pestering you.

With the Turtle Fighters game you get the classic cabinet look for a game that I would plunk quarter after quarter into at the movie theater ever Friday. I loved playing hat game because you could play with 4 people. This is a single player game, obviously, but it captures the game from my youth. I am a huge turtles fan and love having this as part of my collection.
