Crown Royal, Cherry Coke Zero, and The Little Mermaid

Saturday again, finally, and what's this mean? Well, a wine making class of course. Fun, yes, yes. However, after hearing tales and experiences about one vice (wine) for near on five hours a guy wants to just go ahead and jump into another. Ahoy! we have a found game. The Little Mermaid for the Sega Genesis. This one's not for me however, it is for my guest game reviewer: Amy, as she picked it out. After a hour of playing I got "This game makes me annngggrrry!", "I must be missing something", "It's not so bad because you can go up and down, unlike Mario", and "You can't follow me in here you stupid clam!" That last one could be related to the title of this blog.

She is still playing quietly at the moment so I will jump in with what my thoughts are. First off, playing any Genesis game on a tube TV is a treat. The Little Mermaid is no exception. It's colorful and bright. The characters are larger and for the most part creatively designed. The level layout is put together well. Seems to be a fair amount of having to go 'here' to 'get to that' kind of game play, but it isn't annoying, but I'm not the one playing. Amy scored it a 6.0 out of 10.0 on gamespot, where i keep my catalog straight.

From what I remember about the movie I've got to say the game really has nothing to do with it. Nor does the illustration below, but both are alright with me.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say you've done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Exceptional Blog!
