Super Cobra, ColecoVision

Like the MSX version of Super Cobra this 1983 ColecoVision conversion is also somewhat flawed.

For starters: the levels just repeat themselves over and over – except in different colours. It unfortunately makes the game very boring to play. You keep thinking: “I’m sure I’ve seen this bit before…” And you have, because the same hills and tunnels keep appearing, time and time again.

It’s a pity because ColecoVision Super Cobra could (should) have been good – better than the MSX version anyway. The scrolling is smooth and the graphics are well-defined and are reasonably colourful, but they are wasted on unnecessarily repetitive gameplay. A little bit of design ingenuity and developer Parker Brothers would surely have solved that.
