Scrapyard Dog 

 

Scrapyard Dog is a 2D side scrolling action adventure platformer with quite a bit of heart in it. Our dog gets kidnapped and we must make it across these levels to save him. I felt like Scrapyard Dog was starting with a country song. I was determined to make this song a happy one instead of one of the sad ones. The storyline in Scrapyard Dog really caught my eye. Plus Scrapyard Dog is really different from a lot of the Atari Lynx video games I have played over the years.

Scrapyard Dog looks really good for a retro hand held video game. Thanks to the Evercade system I was able to play Scrapyard Dog on the home television. That made Scrapyard Dog an even better experience. I would love to see a day where all hand held video games would be playable on a large television screen. There are plenty of enemies that spawn in at the same time plus they launch projectiles at the player. Avoiding hits on a hand held is a bit of a problem.

The music and special effect sounds in Scrapyard Dog are fantastic. I enjoyed listening to them while slowly working my way through the levels. I learned slow and steady wins the race in Scrapyard Dog. You never know what will be appearing soon and what pitfalls may appear in front of you. I would not want to speed run Scrapyard Dog because of how many objects there are to interact with. We also collect money while we are working our way through Scrapyard Dog.

We have the ability in Scrapyard Dog to throw a bouncy projectile at the enemies. Once that projectile connects with the enemy character they vanish. It is almost like the enemies are sucked up into the projectile like it is a worm hole or something. You can check out the video I did of Scrapyard Dog to see more. I had some fun playing Scrapyard Dog on the Evercade video game system. I am so thankful they made these Atari Lynx compilations.

We only get so many lives in Scrapyard Dog. This is a true retro 2D side scrolling video game. Family members playing Scrapyard Dog need to make it through the levels without losing all of their lives. That means family members playing Scrapyard Dog will need to practice to learn the patterns and enemies. I hope to see more games like Scrapyard Dog in the near future.
