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.
Drink a Beer and Play a Game are two friends, Jim and Brian, who enjoy talking about games as much as they enjoy trying new beers.

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!
