Popeye 164/365

I love Popeye so much, he’s just the best. One time the company that took over the island that is the movie set for the Robin Williams’ Popeye movie bought 1,000s of my buttons to sell off as their own tchotchkes; I was proud of that.


This rad arcade classic came home this month to the Nintendo in 1986.

“As Popeye, you are trying to win Olive Oyl’s love! She is at the top of the screen dropping tokens of her love, and you need to collect them before they hit the ground. After you have collected the required number of items, you can move on to the next, more difficult level. There are many obstacles trying to stop you from completing your task, though! Brutus wanders around the screen and is constantly trying to catch you. If you collect a can of spinach, you can temporarily knock him out, otherwise, Brutus will knock you out. Other objects such as bottles or birds are also flying around the screen and will cause you to lose one of your lives if you are hit. Each level features a different layout of platforms and ladders, and will have you collecting different items as they float towards the bottom of the screen!”

Pick up your own copy here and don’t forget to check “Sold Items” before hitting up an auction.
