[Worst C64 Games]

Intergalactic Cage Match

Cage Match]

Intergalactic Cage Match was released by Mastertronic in 1987 and was the worst game I have played on the c64. I'm sure there were worse games made, but this is the poorest one that I have had the misfortune of playing. Not only were the graphics subpar, but the animation was absolutely horrible and the music was equally bad. This was also one of the extremely few games that Compute's Gazette actually gave a bad review to. Compute's Gazette hardly ever badmouthed a game because I assume they didn't want to lose advertising dollars. I remember thinking that this would be a cool wrestling game to play, especially since it was in a cage, but it didn't take longer than about 5 seconds to discover how wrong I was. If you've never seen or played this game, count yourself lucky.

Kid Niki

[Kid Niki]

Kid Niki is probably the worst arcade conversion I have seen for the c64, although Karnov and Ikari Warriors(USA Version) are worthy contenders for that crown. Not surprisingly, all 3 of those games were made by Data East. I can't really decide which part of Kid Niki is the worst, the graphics (which look like they were done with a program like Koala Pad) are very poor, the gameplay is extremely bad, and the sound effects are what you'd expect from an old Atari 2600 game. If you've played this game at the arcade, you'd find it hard to believe that this is supposed to be a conversion of it.
