Video Game Ad of the Day: Popeye

I will surely pay you next Tuesday for a hamburger today.

Popeye was developed by Nintendo for the arcades in 1982. They had originally tried to score the rights to Popeye for what became Donkey Kong, but King Features Syndicate wouldn’t have a bar of it – until Donkey Kong was a huge success and they found out what they missed out on. With Nintendo having no home console presence outside of Japan at the time, they licensed the game to Parker Bros. for release on the myriad of systems available at the time.
