I know you’re all set to come and smash some windows, but here’s a warning. There are no windows to be smashed in this game. Not one. I know, the title is vey misleading isn’t it. You can crack a safe though, how does that sound? Oh, I see. You just want to smash windows. Ah well.

One Armed Bandit (Vic-20 Cassette 50 Game 13)

I’d love to think that out there in the real world there really is a bandit who has one arm, and if his eyes ever roll around in his head and reveal two cherries then a load of money falls out of his pants.

Has some similarities to Smash The Windows on the Acorn Electron Cassette 50

Piss-poor breakout clone with a social vandalism twist. I can say no more. See for yourself:

Smash the Windows

Now, I’m not suggesting that you, dear reader, are prone to acts of vandalism, but just say that there was an occasion where you had to smash some windows in, what would you use? A rock? A cricket bat (or a baseball bat for more international readers)? A gun? Your own head?

I’m pretty sure that none of you would say a bat and ball. Cassette 50 disagrees. Trouble is, it appears that whoever is operating the bat in Smash the Windows is no longer able to run around, and has compounded their poor choice of window smashing equipment with their inability to get across and hit the ball more than once.

Invest in a brick, Cassette 50. Invest in a brick.

There’s nothing in this game that involves smashing windows.This is a fruit machine thing. I suppose you might smash the windows of your home or office in frustration at how long it takes for this game to draw the graphics on the screen. Or at the annoying alarm-like sound that plays when your game is finished.

I have never won anything any time I have played this game. Ever.
