Description of Cool Spot

Cool Spot is a fun, colorful platform game featuring the 7-up mascot as the hero.

The game's objective is fairly simple: you have to collect enough number of bonuses throughout each level in order to find the trapped Spots. As Accatone pointed out in his review of the game for MobyGames: To be able to direct a "cool-looking" star through our microcosmos sounds something unlike any other journey in our computers?

Well, in my humble opinion, Cool Spot has tried to be an alternative with that known feel of platform gaming, but rather having more addictive effect; an addiction to see further... I know its well-drawn graphics and funky soundtrack has that potential. And I bet you can't resist Cool Spot either who yawns, cleans its sunglasses or plays with a yo-yo when you do nothing >8>

But Cool Spot has something missing. Yeah, it has difficult gameplay even at its easiest level and a level design which adds no any special feature into its ideas. Maybe you could also blame our 7-Up mascot for its rather slow movement. However, what actually the game is lacking is it doesn't feature a new look-and-feel for a platform game and you don't feel yourself having played something special either.

Anyway, without a doubt, Cool Spot is one of the few good platform games available for PC. And if you ever get the chance to play it, don't miss it! It seems that it even hadn't lost any of its features while being converted from the original Mega Drive version! So, highly recommended... "

Besides "Spot", "Cool Spot" and "Spot Goes to Hollywood", there was another 7up game (or games) like "Fido Dido", at least for 16 bit consoles only.

I vaguely remember playing this in elementary school back in the day, similar in terms of gameplay, graphics and style to virgin's Aladdin. the DOS version is awesome and works great in DOSBox, however by Default there's no sound at all you have to go to the Cool Spot Directory and open with dosbox the setup.exe and select the "Adlib" Sound card then just quit/save and it will save the sound settings. now when you start the game that game will have sound.

@Banner001 You're supposed to select the Adlib soundcard to get sound, that worked for me.

A really decent port of the snes or genesis game. A good classic game that brings back memories.
