The one game that's convinced me to buy an Evercade VS


May 11, 2021
I was on the fence about buying an Evercade VS. The main benefits of the VS over the handheld is the multiplayer options. (You can also plug it into the TV – but you can already do this with the handheld)


The trouble is, the games I'd want to play with other players I have on other systems. Speedball 2 and Sensi Soccer, for example, I already have on the Amiga and the Mega Drive. So I decided I'd give the VS a miss, I don't really need another console...

But then Evercade announced the Arcade carts. And one game changed my mind got me.


If you've never played Warlords before you are in for a treat. Imagine a cross between Pong and Breakout where you use your paddle to defend your wall and deflect the ball to attack the other players wall. Plus it supports up to four players!


AFAIK, the only home port of the arcade warlords that you could play four players on, was the Atari 2600 version, and while that was still pretty awesome, it would be great to play the arcade original at home with 3 other people. (Though if someone created a Compatible USB paddle that would be the icing on the cake)

So Warlords has sold the Evercade VS for me!

Anyone else thinking of getting one? What swayed you?
