Introduction


Oh no, it's Alf for the Master System! If you couldn't tell by the first sentence, I am not fond of this game. At all. I will admit that I like the Alf Tv show, but I can NOT stand the video game of the same name. Why? Keep reading.
Gameplay
You play as Alf, obviously. The point of the game is to get Alf to fix his ship. So how are you going to do that? Well, you need to look for objects to help him fix it. This game is kind of like a side scrolling-adventure type game, but it doesn't work out that well. First of all, you die in one hit, making this game somewhat hard. The reason I say this is Easy is because it's really short, but more on that later. Inside the Tanner's house, in the fridge, you find your only weapon in the game... a piece of salami. Then you go to the basement and you start attacking annoying bats that I never got past because the game is infuriatingly terrible. I think I've said enough about the game play, so let's go on to the...
Graphics
Here we are at the graphics. As you might have guessed, the graphics are really pretty bad. Everything looks like the designers weren't really trying. Alf looks like a Muppet in this game, to tell the truth. Sort of. Everything is plain and looks ugly, furniture, and Bart Simpson on a motorcycle. (It looks like him as a teen) I don't know what else to say about the graphics so lets talk about sound in this game.
Sound & Music
I can't say anything here. Why? Is it because it is so terrible that words can't describe it? Nope that's not it. So why can't I say anything about? Well, to tell the truth, my retarded piece of crap computer is completely muted, and there is no sound whatsoever. I don't know why. I also said this for my Wonder Boy review, too, so please check that out if you can. However, I am guessing that the music for this game is really bad too.
Controls
You can move left. You can move right. You can jump. You can open doors. ...That's it. That's the controls. However, moving is not much of a problem, and neither is jumping. I'm not sure what else I should say about the controls.

Replay Value
Replay Value? This game? *Laughs* This game has replay value? This game has very little replay value, if any at all. The only reason you want to play this game is to torture some one you hate. REALLY hate. Or if you are trying to beat the game, but that does not matter, because, as I stated in the Gameplay section, the game is very short and the ending sucks. I've never beaten the game because I couldn't take it any more, but I've seen the ending online. Onto Final Scores.
Conclusion
This game simply stinks. A lot. The graphics are terrible, this game has NO replay value, and worst of all the game is just BORING. Do not get this game unless you are a collector, because this game is pretty rare. But I wouldn't buy it. However, if you REALLY want to give this game a try, try it out on an emulator. I need to calm down now, so I hope you enjoyed my rant- er... review. Yes, review. Good bye...for now.
