Mean Machines (Oct, 1992)
A flawed conversion of a classic game. A sadly missed opportunity which could have been bettered by a few tweaks in the right places.

Contrairement à ceux qui l’ont précédé sur ordinateur, le portage de Smash T.V. sur Megadrive ne donne clairement pas le sentiment d’une version au rabais. Tout le contenu de la version d’origine a été conservé, jusqu’aux voix digitalisées, mais il faudra bien évidemment composer avec les limitations techniques de la 16-bits de SEGA, et surtout avec une difficulté glaçante encore renforcée par les limitations imposées par la manette de la Megadrive.

Overall, I like Super Smash T.V. If you like it as I did, then you probably still play it once in a while, and that's something that gives this game a longer shelf life than most arcade ports of the era. This one also comes dirt cheap, so if you're interested to shooting a Sunday away, then buy it. I know I'D BUY THAT FOR A DOLLAR!

Die totale Action: Bei Super Smash TV wird geballert, was die Feuertasten hergeben. Da ihr in der Automatenvariante z.B. nach rechts lauten, gleichzeitig aber nach oben ballern konntet, spielt Ihr Super Smash TV auf Wunsch mit zwei Joypads. Habt Ihr nur eines oder müßt Ihr Euch die beiden Pads teilen (im Zweispielermodus) , ist die Steuerung anfangs verwirrend; mit Übung geht sie aber dennoch gut von der Hand. Grafisch wird mehr Quantität, als Qualität geboten: Dutzende von Mini-Sprites wuseln, ballern und sterben - nur die Endgegner sind eine Ecke dicker und optisch beeindruckend. Wer auf Marathongeballere ohne Schnörkel und Überraschungen steht, darf zugreifen.
The Video Game Critic (Dec 07, 1999)
The graphics are pretty good, and look similar to the arcade version. The quality of the voice samples is pretty lousy though - the announcer sounds raspy. The main problem with Smash TV is that it's meant to be played with two joysticks, not one control pad. Actually, the game DOES allow you to use two control pads in the one-player mode, but it's far too awkward. You can tweak the controls to determine if the shots should be fired away from where you're running, toward where you're running, or in a locked position. It's all just a big kludge though, because none of the settings really capture the feel of the arcade game. Unfortunately, without good control, this game isn't much fun.
