The Video Game Critic (Dec 19, 2006)
Food Fight isn't too difficult until the chefs also begin tossing food, creating some nasty crossfire situations. Once the kid reaches the ice cream, he freakishly unhinges his jaw like a python to swallow the entire thing. You're then rewarded bonus points as the unused food is literally sucked into your score. Likewise, when caught by a chef, all the food converges on you, creating a big mess. Occasionally a round is played back in a "slow motion" replay, but I could have done without that. If you own an Atari 7800, Food Fight needs to be in your library.
Food Fight is unique to the 7800 and although it starts slowly, you can begin at higher levels that provide a good challenge and a lot of fun. Everyone loves a food fight!
With plenty of food to toss, and with comical antagonists present, you can't go wrong with this cart. This is arguably the best arcade translation ever for a classic system.
