Review: Manhole

Basically cuz I'm bored, I'm going to now write a review. Not just any review, but a review of one of the greatest goddamn games of all time. The subject of this review, this game, is not Unreal Tournament, or fucking Ultima 7 parts one and two, nor is it Galaga or Mrs Pacman. It is of course, Manhole, a Nintendo Game and Watch from 1981.

Manhole is one of the earliest G&W's - it's not even widescreen, but it has the gold facing, distingusing it from the first G&W's, the silver faces. The object of the game is to stop the braynless pedestrians from falling into the sewers thru the manholes. You accomplish this by holding a board to cover up the four manoles The game starts off slowly, then picks up the pace, and before you know it, you're screwed, as the dumbass pedestrians come thicker and faster, and your thumbs get tired.

All in all an awesome game, a piece of handheld history. Worth a bit on ebay too, around 50$US I believe.

I used to have a game like that but you shot ducks, but it wasnt a video game and there weren`t any ducks.
