Probably the best game ever to be based off a beverage. Genesis Adzuken (818)
Easier gameplay and some inspiring level design could have made Cool Spot a better game... DOS Accatone (5183)
One of the most iconic characters of advertising gets a game. And it's actually good. SNES Steelysama (106)
Drink Me Genesis ETJB (447)
A neat game, if somewhat stupid. DOS Tomer Gabel (4361)

In the PC version, there are two batch files (UKVER.BAT and USVER.BAT) in the Cool Spot game directory. UKVER.BAT makes the game "British" by removing the 7-up logo from the bottle displayed in the title screen. USVER.BAT on the other hand returns the 7-up logo.
