Title Vinegar CHIP-8/SCHIP emulator (83/83+)
Description Vinegar is a CHIP-8 and SCHIP interpreter. It comes with a large number (over 50!) of programs and games, including conversions of lots of arcade classics (Pacman, Space Invaders, Breakout, Tron, Pong etc). The interpreter has many different settings to fine-tune the speed, sound, error-trapping, sprite wrapping options and more. It also supports a quick save and load mechanism.

“Vinegar” is supposed to emulate older arcade games. It's supposed to give the experience of a classic arcade. It doesn't.

Overall, the games it comes with have graphics ranging from very bad to very good. The games are also very similar to their classic counterparts. So why was I dissapointed?

The controls.

I was so happy to see that a “Double Dragon” clone had been made, called “Single Dragon”. When I started it up, I saw that the readme stated that the controls were (in a non square-like pattern) numbers and the plus sign. These controls hindered gameplay so much that it was unplayable. “Double Dragon” was not the only one. Many of the controls made gameplay confusing and you had to constantly look at the keys you are pressing instead of the screen.

Stability is less than perfect, (crashed within ten minutes upon exiting); the graphics are terrible in most games; the controls make it unplayable, and “Vinegar” makes two large programs that I think have to reside in RAM for it to work. (it wasn't explained in the readme).

Graphics: 1/10 - 9/10 Some good, some bad. “Vinegar” itself is a shell-like program, so the graphics are good enough.

Speed: 11/10 The thing about “Vinegar” I do like it its ability to change the speed ever so slightly, or dramatically.

Size: 4/10 5500 bites, so when the shell it is run out of unarchives it, you may only have 16,000 bites of RAM to run programs within “Vinegar”.

Controls: -8/10 terrible

Overall: 4/10 I know this took a lot of hard work, but I strongly recommend that you do not download “Vinegar”.
