Av 5 rom check win
the strict limitations of early consoles makes for a great comparative study of games. the palette, sprite size, and background limitations meant that there was a high level of consistency in assets and rules between games, and thus unique and well implemented mechanics obviously defined a game’s quality.

rom check uses this observation to create a mashup of the classics, and perfectly executes what it attempts. you’ll learn to play it quickly through trial and error. you’ll sometimes be trapped in inescapable situations, and sometimes be lucky enough to have all the elements line up in your favor, but ultimately the randomness is balanced by the careful constraints of the system, and the generous number of lives provided.

the flexibility and variety of control invites comparisons to the original bubble bobble, while the constant shift in rules adds the reactionary element of warioware.

if two or more elements in the screenshots to the left bring you memories, you will probably love this game. it will make you want to buy this farbs fellow a drink, and have a chat with him about the old days (whether you actually remember them or not).

It is good, as a joke, as an experiment, as a game. As you like it.
