Power Quest: Alternative Route – Rick V.


 I really didn’t get much from Power Quest. I thought it was extremely repetitive. I did get a strange sense of joy during the opening cutscenes. Same kid with the same creepy dead-eyed face with an alternating background. And of course the BOYS shirt. I noticed something when I was capturing screenshots to draw this. In the intro, our characters friend comes over. When the friend is talking it only shows the background. I’m pretty sure the developers just forgot to insert said friend into the scene! Anywho, enjoy this sloppy comic. This is also me experimenting with Copic markers. What do you folks think BOYS sounds like? I am imagining them sounding like the Fleshies because I am listening to the new Fleshies record right now. -Rick V.

Bueno Power Fight Hour 11: Power Quest – Arthur Bueno

My name is Arthur Bueno and I am an artist and a lover of fighting games. I’ve recently opened up this segment on my BUENO POWER YouTube channel called “Bueno Power Fight Hour” which I showcase fighting games played on a MixBox style format. Basically, I’m playing these games to see if they:
  1. play better
  2. make the game fun
  3. see if new strats could be created when you couldn’t do it on an original controller or fightstick.
Sometimes certain commands are hard to execute and I think that playing these games with this MixBox controller layout could potentially make the player view the game in a different angle.
Power Quest was a perfect example as the game was not only fun but executing certain commands and combos was easier for me to do. The game almost plays like Super Street Fighter II Grand Master Challenge.

June 2019 – Power Quest (1998)


What can I say about this game? Well, nothing really because I haven’t played it. It’s been compared to Pokemon, I know that. To me, it looks like a one on one fighting game where you run from house to house talking to people who make weird faces. When you get them in the right mood, they challenge you to a fight with their robot. You are allowed to customize your robots. The soundtrack is good and it’s pretty colorful if you are playing on a GB Color. Since it’s a black cart, you can play it in your grandfathers Gameboy or the Super Gameboy.

The game was picked by Mike Anthony who had this to say about it :
“I borrowed this from a kid on the school bus so many times. The fighting Game-style combat combined with simple RPG elements makes this obscure game a uniquely fun time.” 

So as we say, buy it, borrow it, or bootleg it! It doesn’t matter. Play it and let us and everybody know what you think!
