Good Luck With This Smash T.V. Poster…You’ll Need It!

The first time I encountered Smash T.V. was on a High School art trip to the neighboring state of Oklahoma. To say that my group of friends were not only impressed and addicted by what some might see as the spiritual successor of 1982’s Robotron 2084 is something of an understatement. We almost missed boarding the bus back home we were all so engrossed in the over the top carnage of the game.

Good luck catching that bus...you'll need it!

So I was quite happy to share artist Rusty Shackle’s fantastic illustration featuring our two “heroes” blasting away while they collect all of that sweet, sweet loot as well as mounds of VCR’s, luggage, and toasters!

Just like with his artwork for the Elevator Action poster, Mr. Shackles has really made me want to plop down in the living room with the Williams collection on my Xbox and play this particular arcade favorite.

Of course…I’m stuck at work so I suppose I might have to settle with watching this complete playthrough by MAME Player!
