Popeye ist im Gegensatz zu vielen Videospielen mit makabren, brutalen und einfallslosen Ballerstories ein wirkliches Spiel. Es tut sich, nicht zuletzt dank der verschiedenen Bildschirm-Darstellungen, so allerlei auf der Mattscheibe, sowohl bei Atari als auch bei Colecovision.

Of the two versions out from Parker so far, the ColecoVision edition comes closest to the arcade original. Bluto, especially, is excellently characterised. Coleco's sound system is more than up to the task of belting out "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" whenever our one-eyed hero downs a can of spinach.

The Video Game Critic
In this likeable platform game, Popeye must collect floating objects thrown by Olive Oyl from the top of the screen while avoiding Bluto and other hazards. When Popeye eats his spinach, which appears once per round, he can turn the tables on Bluto -- sending him flying with one punch. This is a terrific version of the arcade hit, featuring all three screens (including the pirate ship). Although the scenery looks lovely, the characters aren't nearly as impressive. Popeye is solid white, and Bluto and Olive Oyl don't look so hot either. At least the excellent music and sound effects are arcade-perfect. Popeye is a blast to play, and with six different skill levels, it's always a challenge.
