Because, the game looks better than what I had expected, a faithfull port!

It was the one and only Sega game released for the Intellivision.

It looks good but the game play isn't great.

That's too bad on the poor game play.  I remember the Arcade or MAME port of "Congo Bongo" was somewhat difficult to manuever too.  Perhaps we should give the Intellivision and Sega some credit for being a faithful port then?

@DakotaKid: I've never tried in mame so maybe im being harsh. If the gameplay is or was hard in the original, maybe this is a perfect port.

The mobility on "Congo Bongo" is comparable to "Q*bert" and/or maybe "Zaxxon", would you agree?

@DakotaKid: If you mean it's a isometric game then yes, it is. In fact, its the reason this game us hard to control as its difficult to line yourself up for jumps properly.
