Popeye is an arcade game released in 1982. It was ported to the Atari 2600, the Atari 5200, the ColecoVision, the Intellivision, the Odyssey 2, the Nintendo Entertainment System, and home computers. It is based on the classic cartoon character of the same name.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The action of Popeye takes place on three screens. On all of them your sailor hero must collect objects cast down by Olive Oyl (hearts, musical notes, and letters spelling HELP) before they reach the bottom floor and disappear into the drink. While doing so you must avoid Bluto as well as the mysterious Sea Hag's bottle tosses. By grabbing a can of spinach, Popeye can turn the tables on Bluto and send him flying around and landing in the drink for a brief while. Collect all of Olive's objects and you go on to the next screen.
