UVL maintenance: Confusable

Other (objects, etc.) concept

Any games that can be easily confused with another game by same or similar name on same or related platform.


The first video game about UVL maintenance: Confusable was released in 1954.

Level 9 Computing, Continental Software and Atari has published most of these games

This is a maintenance tag for finding games that are easily confusable within game listings yet have no intrinsic way of directing to the other game the user may have wanted instead. Usually there may be an article linking or mentioning the other game, but game relations could be used for this too.

Should not be used between games on different platforms unless the platforms are tightly related (e.g. Megadrive cartridge and Mega-CD which are actually same platform, just different media). For other examples: PS1, PS2, and PS3 is a group one could confuse things with, FDS, NES and SNES are possibly confused, as well as Xbox, X360, and Xbox One, the various NEC PCs, and so on.
