M.U.L.E. for the Atari 800

Video

Special guest stars The Puppeteer and The Red Flapper join us for M.U.L.E., the strategy game that combines Star Wars, Pac-Man, Settlers of Catan, and, uh, E.T., I guess.

Videos:

Part 1: A Packer, a Flapper, a Bonzoid, and a Spheroid walk into a bar. And win $100 gambling!

Part 2: Do beginners learn best when three other guys are shouting incoherent instructions at the top of their lungs? Let’s find out!

Part 3: Will the purple monkey thing pull ahead of the blue derpy Pacman?

Part 4: Hump that Wampus! Uh, Hunt! Hunt!

Part 5: We find out who the winner is! (Turns out it’s nobody.)

Playlist:

Part 1: It’s the 1992 USA Olympic Men’s Basketball Team…of RPG’s!

Part 2: Man, I hate it when I meet a cute girl with skinny blonde hair, only to accidentally send her through a wormhole.

Part 3: Now 400 years in the past, Crono’s gotta make Marle’s parents go to the Enchantment Under the Sea dance and punch out Biff. Or I may be thinking of something else.

Part 4: A frog named Frog joins the crew, and then we stumble across a Naga-ette bromide, causing a long discussion of exactly what the crap a “bromide” is. Other than a mutual suicide pact at a frat house.

Part 5: Well, we saved the princess and got back home, so I guess the game’s over.

OR IS IT?!?

Part 6: CSI: Guardia.

Looks like this time, the trigger’s been pulled…on Crono.

YEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

Part 7, in which our band of heroes encounters a dystopian hellscape of a future. Thanks, Obama!

Part 8, in which we finally get an end goal. Break it down for us, Guardian!

Part 9 introduces us to the most important robotic character in the game…THE MAN!

Oh, and some other generic robot joins the party, I guess.

Part 10: Racist blue robots can’t keep the yellow robot down, man!

Part 11: The crew reaches the End of Time, which is surprisingly steampunk. They also come out of the closet! Magic magic magic magic magic…

Annoying owls and hot pixel action! Which way to the bakehouse?

With special guest star The Sister!

See the doodles!

Playlist

Part 1: Looks like some evil wizard doesn’t share our love of square castles!

Part 2: Cedric the owl becomes obsessed with the Bake House and its hot pixel action!

Aah! Life-giving Part 3! Nectar of the gods!

Part 4 contains this game’s ridiculous Moon Logic Puzzle. Well…one of them anyway (KQV is infamous for these, moreso than even other Sierra games). But this one involves honey!

Part 5: How many offensive stereotypes have YOU helped today? Be sure to describe it in the most ridiculously verbose way possible!

Part 6: Naked ladies! That oughta drive up our traffic! (Note: said ladies may or may not actually be hideous harpies with Lady Godiva hair and men’s voices.) Also, YONDAR’S THE CRYSTAL CAVE! THERE YOU WILL FHAND THE YETHIGVJKFSFLIEI

Part 7: In which Graham finally reaches Mordack’s island and navigates a maze filled with Space Invaders. Terrified Confusion!

Part 8: I hope you liked that maze, because it’s back for an encore! Also, we get to wait in a library for forever! Action-packed!

#WhoIsSam?

Part 9: The final showdown with Mordack results in a lazy deus ex machina for everyone! At least the castle is safe for square castle lovers everywhere. Also, there are like forty artists but only five programmers, which explains a lot.
