    They shoulda given it to LJN. Maybe a shitty movie and a shitty game company would cancel itself out and the game would be decent.

      You must be new here. LJN is the bringer of shit storms. In turn, feeding a shit storm will increase the shitphoon.

    I saw this in a goodwill recently and was wondering if you’d heard of it!

    I’ve been eying that big present since this began. I can’t wait to see inside!

    The “submarine on wheels” is clearly a police car.

    Awww… 3 more days left πŸ™ this has been really fun to watch so far. You’ve really outdone yourself this year.

    Shouldn’t that game count as Atari Porn? Maybe!

      I was thinking the same thing.

  • December 19, 2014 at 11:33 am

    swinging around on that pole would of been fucking fun back in the day. Game has flaws but it looks pretty good

    Ohh wow. Can’t believe they would event attempt this as a game. I remember being disturbed as a child from the scene where the snake comes up through the toilet. To this day if I hear a noise in the toilet, I have to look just to be sure it’s not an animal coming to eat my ass.

    Even though it has it’s place in the influence of gross-out films, I actually think Porky’s is quite an awful film. Nowhere near as good as Animal House or Caddyshack.

      Animal House seemed to be the better of them. Caddy Shack for me only had 1 or 2 funny scenes. Part 2 was unwatchable.

    Atari has some fun games.Not this one. Try haunted house.

    Game actually looks fun for atari

    Never played this game. But as someone who grew up in the 80’s (and therefore someone who used their imagination even while playing video games) as soon as the white character started chasing you I immediately thought of the rotting old woman in The Shining… *shudders*
    (yes, I may be slightly disturbed)

    Aww i really thaught its Porky the pig from Merrie Melodies πŸ˜›

    This was a classic game for us. We were growing up in the ’80s when every boy saw the Porky’s movie and every boy played Atari so it was a natural. I admit it’s one really trippy game that only bears slight resemblance to the movie but the shower room and blowing up Porky’s whorehouse are straight from the movie. Say it’s not as good as Animal House or Caddyshack if you will, but they didn’t get any sequels whereas Porky’s had a trilogy.

    In comparing it to more modern movies the most obvious connection would be American Pie. Exactly the same kind of coming-of-age, T&A, gross-out film.

      Whoops I should say that Caddyshack did get an awful sequel years later with a new cast but Porky’s had a trilogy with the same cast.

    I couldn’t hear anything you said James, I was too busy jacking my beef to that sexy shower screen.

    This was the best one.

    I didn’t know this game existed. I’ll never play it so it was awesome for you to show everything in the game and do it entertainingly.

    Thanks James

    Porky’s was not geared towards adults.

    So…is the game a shitload of fuck or isn’t it?

    I can’t wait to see what’s in the big boxes!

    BOOOMMM!!!!!!!!!! Awesome!!!!!!!

    This game shouldve added a porkys chase scene to the county line for an escape after the whorehouse closure just like the movie. The balbricker chasing you reminds me of kool aid man on intellivision when those ghost chase you with that creepy jaws like music when they get closer to the kids in the game..

    A “Porky’s” game? To me, that sounds stupefying for any era. For what it’s worth, it looks like the game designers did what they could with it.

      Agreed, it appears that a genuine effort was made to make this playable within the limits of the 2600. Definitely truer to the source material than most movie-based games from later consoles.

  • Tross

    I never saw the movie this game is supposedly based on, but the way you describe that shower scene, it had to have been R rated. This game looks awful though.

    Hahaha that game is hilarious. I can’t believe you had the patience to beat it. Great review.

    Your video player fucks up every time I watch a video (which is all of your videos) and THAT’s bullshit. Great vids tho! Love the shorter review style. Reminds me of the earlier episodes which are among my favorites.

  • December 20, 2014 at 7:25 pm

    I beat this game back in the day. It was pretty awesome of it’s time. But to understand what’s happening you need to read the manual. XD

  • January 6, 2015 at 6:30 am

    I remember the movie as quite cheesy and a bit cheeky. Probably not so fun to watch today. The game looks shite but not as unplayable as some of the other games from back then.

    Wow. I never knew that was a thing. Only on Atari… Thanks!
