Popeye - Classic Arcade game is coming to the Atari 7800 as an Arcade conversion

Now here's a blast from the past, as we've just been informed that the classic Arcade game of 'Popeye', is coming to the Atari 7800 as an Arcade conversion by SeeSaw(Darryl Guenther). In a similar vein to Donkey Kong albeit not as good, you play as Popeye and must collect hearts, musical notes and the letters H-E-L-P that the lovable character Olive drops from the top of the screen. But be warned, just like the cartoon, Brutus will get in your way with the help of the bad Sea Hag!

If you can avoid being grabbed from above, below or sideways by Brutus, or punch the bottles thrown in your direction, you may just be able to grab a piece of Spinach and turn the tables on the big bully. If you can grab all the items needed, the level is a success and you're on the way to the next! So look out for this game as I'm sure you'll agree, it's going to be a ton of fun on the Atari 7800.
