Channel F – Comfy Edition

Another cartridge with two games. Finally. The first one is Galactic Space Wars.
You control a spaceship from thew first perspn perspective and try to kill more enemies than the computer. You only have 99 seconds and a little red number tells you the position of other ships. I lost pretty much all rounds, but it doesn’t matter. Seeing black and white was a welcoming change after looking at green for the last two weeks and combined with the fitting silence (except when shooting) was almost therapeutic.

The other game is Lunar Landing, where you try toland a rocket a gast as possible on a small green platform. To keep it short: there are a million better variants out there.
