Allison’s Gameplay: Jeopardy! – Deluxe Edition

I lost on Jeopardy! – Deluxe Edition, baby! Come watch me get my book geek on in a play through of the 1993 Super Nintendo Entertainment System game “Jeopardy! – Deluxe Edition.” You may find yourself singing along with “Weird” Al Yankovic too!

It Was a Little Too “Vanilla”

I finished recording a gameplay video for Wheel of Fortune – Deluxe Edition the night before recording this gameplay, banking on it as my next Retroist article.

And then I saw how “vanilla” the game is.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the game is perfectly playable and fun (if you like word games), but it was so…bland. I finished making a 40-minute gameplay video that yielded few comments. There wasn’t much to say. But since I don’t waste good gameplay footage, I uploaded it to YouTube and scheduled it as an article on Allison’s Written Words. And then I tackled Jeopardy! – Deluxe Edition, because despite being a game of knowledge, it couldn’t possibly be as bland, could it?

The answer is no.

I Was Here, To Test My Intellect…

On Nesbox emulator…

Against Tim Allen’s lookalike, and an old lady. Probably both with PhDs.

I was tense, I was nervous…

And when you watch my video, you’ll understand why.

Oh, and its laden with commentary!

But Wait, There’s More!

Oh, and if you’re really itching after 49 minutes of Jeopardy! – Deluxe Edition to see the Wheel of Fortune play through, then by all means…

Space Ace Super Nintendo Commercial (1993)

Space Ace - SNES
Having survived the ordeal of playing the Dragon’s Lair port on the NES and even attempting to play the SNES version…you might understand why I was a bit gun shy when it came to the Space Ace SNES port. I’m in the minority here with this statement but I kind of liked it. I thought it was incredibly hard mind you…but I thought we were getting a step closer to the real deal.

Though look at the leering grin that Ace is giving Borf in that commercial…that’s some pretty scary stuff!
