I was not awake enough probably. I thought you scored 20 BILLION
No 20 million isn't that great but you had fun. Cheers
Wow. What a surprise. Didn't know you were such an excellent Pinball player
Thanks. I believe it was never released and just some prototypes were made.
Video recording was all black as OBS was still configured to Steam Zaccaria .
What an original game idea. Plant seeds, protect them and then plant the trees and protect them in the next level... 8bit at it's best.
Dead by fish
I remember this game review in the French magazine 'Tilt'. Larquey will know that multi platform magazine. It seemed very colourful. But guess it's quite repetitive.
Which device are you using to record as it is a very quality. Better than my webcam stuff that is.
Voting yes of course.
Thanks. Yeah, this pinball collection isn't that great. Too much pre 70's tables.
Skill 1. Plays as good as the Speccy version.
Only had a few goes. It's quite easy.
Never had this game when I was a kid. And it's a great arcade game. Also building up the score the further you go. Plus you only receive the bonuses if you shoot the end of sector alien ship. Nice touches for score addicts. McKong is unreachable for me
no hi-score table
It's a actually a copy of the arcade game Space Panic.
No probs. It does get repetitive at Beginner levels. Advanced & Expert levels are more challenging. Keep em coming.
Yups. All three as in the video you see the helis don't shoot. But as said, it's ok for me. I just enjoyed a good game. cheers
Even McKong didn't see it ;)
29 and 39 respectively.
No issue for me as I played that score for 2 hours and then discovered it was way too easy. I knew beating McKong wasn't that easy . So I replayed it and it is much tougher and more enjoyable. Very good and original shoot'em up.
No probs for me. It just seemed it was good protected and crackers made some errors on cracking it. See first comment on : http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-wavy-navy_5736.html
This is the orginal (and good) version. Helis fire back (and they do it good...) and planes swift differently. Much tougher than the cracked version you can find e.g. on the Games107.dsk.
Thanks Bunzen for the link.
"Helicopters which don't shoot ARE the failure, caused by cracked copies that don't have all the data. Zero out the last 100 or 200 bytes of a working copy and they will stop shooting. Another bug in a popular cracked file version loses multicolor on screen when waiting for player to press fire for starting new waves. "
Just found out for myself after playing this copy and a score of +150k that this is not the correct copy (bad crack). This is the correct game file:
More difficult as the helis shoot back and the planes swift differently.
Don't worry. Got also one no vote on all my submissions. Once Serious adds the no/yes percentage on our profile info he will be revealed.
Fun to see your competition between baldbull and you.
Yep. Only made it to the end of Area 2.
Amazing stuff. I never have the patience to learn patterns. Gets me itchy
But I do enjoy playing it once in a while.
I remember this cabinet with its very big steer. Good score!
No hi-score table.
I guess so. Since the MSX joystick had two separate fire buttons. Not like our dear Speccy ;)
First time I play Pitfall and honestly I didn't dig it. Very repetitive.
no hi-score table.
Played on 800XL + Sio2SD virtual disk
Yep. Within in a few hours.
But it's fun
You've got plenty of scores ;)
Just enjoying my (late) summer vacation with quite some retro gaming time .
The advantage of NOT being married
Thanks. Uploaded a new snapshot of the video.
800XL + Sio2sd virtual disk
Barely made it
Score rolls over at 100k + 4590 = 104590
Thanks. It isn't that high. But okayish for now.
800XL+ Sio2SD virtual disk
Nope, still don't like mindless button fighting.
Never played this one. Don't know what to do at the end of stage 1...
No hi-score table. It was a bit difficult to get a clear score shot.
I love Z80 games & sounds :)
Played on my JXD gaming tablet. Speed 1 is wayyyy too slooowww. Not enjoyable to play. So I gave up after a while with 12 lives left.
Played on my JXD gaming tablet. Small improvement.
I haven't seen one since I was 8 or 9. Still remember the chipping sounds.
So how you liked this version?
I'll be damned. I just played this on the PS2, same settings as MAME (Normal) and I almost tripled my PB. Maybe I should retry the MAME version someday. Namco Arcade Stick = Top quality!
Easy = default level.
Hi Storm and Welcome here. I am skipping on this submit as it should be posted under Emulation. Please re-post. Thanks and game on.
It plays like Mame . Just a pity the compilation only works with the Dualshock and not the Namco Arcade Stick.
Finally a recent pinball machine (2016). But it crashes each time... So I just played 2x.
And not mine
difficult = hard level
Space Gun is part of the Taito Legends Compilation. Default level = Easy
difficile = difficult = hard level
Last picture is difficult to see difference between 8 and 6; please refer to the prior picture or the video if you doubt.
Sigh...I still had 4 lives when I missed one bugger letting to destroy my base....aarghhh
HMM. Yes, never thought about replacing it. I found only one currently on ebay. Should be ok I guess. And it's a kit, so should be much easier to replace than just the lens. I am not a handy man like you ;)
Difficile = Difficult = Hard Level
Only 1 life on Hard Level. Was surprised it went so well. Even better than my PB on Medium (Mame default level).
To play copies...doh :)
But the DVD laser is dead and it only reads CD's. But I have another slim PS2 :)
Good shooter. But it did had some slow down when there was much on screen.
Easy = default setting
Sorry failed on entering my initials.
Deny the uploaded picture of the 'easy' score.
Almost as good as JBoorman. LOL.
Well it is PB for me and first time played after 15 years or so. This is Playstation at his best. Immediately bought Time Crisis 1 on PSX when it came out. Excellent arcade stuff.
The only flaw here is that it doesn't show your end score. I guess only when you complete the game it saves your score.
1P Challenge Mode. I didn't request this game. It already existed and was empty. Don't know who is games admin for PS2 as I do have some requests standing out.
A surprising fun puzzle game. And excellent music.
CRT+Webcam + light blue scores = bad quality.
As long as it is not higher you may...l o l .
Most, if not all of these tables, are available on the PC (Pinball Arcade). This compilation isn't that great. Too much old tables. But the physics are good, no slow downs.
Thanks. I never had a console till the Playstation 1. Although I liked the racing games, I found that era the end of classic gaming where you 'battle' for scores. There are practically no original 128bit games where you can go for a score.
3 balls only. Proof at beginning of video and last picture.
A 60 years old table.
Difficile = Difficult = Hard level
This is the 'Normal' default level. More enjoyable than the baby version ;)
Easy = default level
No HS table
1 minute after submitting the asshole no voter came in. Hope you're proud.
It's 10.30am GMT +1 here.
The game shows no end score.
Now that was fast ;)
I guess it is played on 'Easy' as it is a bit confusing when you select the 'Level' at the beginning of the game. You just exit I assume on Medium without saving, so you stay on 'Easy'. Just to be sure :)
Great score btw.
Nice and clean cab.
Quand meme 5 Mille
Never was really good at those cutishy platformers.
Can't master it like GalagaKing.
Difficult = Hard
Seems the games admin translated Larquey's request 'Difficile' to 'Difficult'. Should be 'Hard' in English ;)
Modded Silver PS2.
Pity the Namco Arcade Stick doesn't work with this compilation...Playing with the Dualshock isn't great. But okayish for now.
As frustrating as the other versions
no hi-score table. Another bad conversion; but then again it had to be cramped in 16K.
I use my C64 Ultimate II device to mount the virtual disk/tape. And then reconnect the serial cable to the C16. So I can load the disk. A bit tedious but I don't intend to buy a flashcard for the C16.
Also don't have a C16 joystick (non Atari standard). So it's up to keyboard play only. But then you can see I play it on the C16 for real.
I don't expect many good games to come :)
Well.. it was my last Speccy score. Up to another platform
Thanks. I did too ;)
40'02 * 100 as this site doesn't like decimals.
The best event of the lot.
Now I also where your initials come from
from the manual:
THE ZTT ROOM: Break down the wall to enter the control section and then solve the puzzle. Use the Power of Zap to fire but be careful to dodge the bullets. (Remember you must complete the puzzle to win.)
Great score. But why do you submit this score as it is lower than your current number 1 score?
Terrible, terrible Hunchback clone.
an expensive disc it is
It ends with a 'Nonsense in BASIC' prompt. Good.
First time I play this obscure game. And I wasn't impressed. Quite boring after a while.
Nope. I haven't . Didn't had many games. But will flag it ;)
Good score. A difficult version I believe
Another addictive 16k game.
Another 16k game which doesn't like the +2. Games crashes on the hi-score table.
no hi score table
No hi score table/
Start with Japan. Each country must be loaded separately. But the thing is it doesn't go back to Japan (the start level).....
Welcome back CoCo
The game crashes after finalizing level 1. It goes to the basic prompt. Maybe because it doesn't like being played on a +2 (was a 16k game).
Yes here at 6 am GMT+1.
No hi-score table. Couldn't find more than 1 officer to obtain keycard. Extensive mapping required.
My last Atari St submission for this year. Up to another platform.
Good graphics & sound but the gameplay never tops the arcade version. At least it is a lot better than the C64 version.
Not so good; Choice of level see beginning of video.
Level choice at beginning of video.
There are 6 runes in total to colect. Each consisting of 3 pieces. See bottom screen; grey parts. Not a good game. Endless enemies; never like it..
Looks good but slows down very much when it gets crowdy.
How come all those 16-bit computer platformers have a main sprite that is so hard to control. It's like always sliding. Makes it hard to jump precisely on small platforms. Robocod had that too. Oh well... probably my age I guess.
Thanks. That guy is online now. Pity we can't see who is online. That should be a standard feature.
Don't forget to deactivate computer players ;)
Not a great score. But a good conversion.
Not bad for a budget game.
Boring platform game. Codemasters not at their best.
Hi Omargeddon. This is the MSX2 version from Pony Canyon. The US Gold version (for the MSX1) looks totally different. (like the Spectrum version).
So please re-submit under the correct category (MSX2). Skipping vote now ;)
Sound effects reminded me of IK or Exploding Fist. It is a '9'. If you doubt, rewind to the last minute or so of the video. Thanks.
Another bad and boring 16bit game.
Note there is a better looking MSX2 version.
Great system. Wish I had an MSX back then. It has great arcade conversions. Pity the cartridges were so expensive. And distri didn't put a lot of MSX (games) on the shelves. But I had great fun with my Speccy & C64. Now I have an MSX too.
I never looped it. Although I had the original game and played it quite a lot. Ropey gameplay
Yes vote here. Don't worry. Someone is donating everyone 1 or 2 no votes.
Yes. You're a great Speccy player
Playing my ST with a C64 t-shirt :)
Another new table I see. Yes vote of course.
and me too
Not a good shooter. Actually called 'Outlands' and released in 1989 by Pandora. The same game was released by Players as a budget game in 1991 and given this name.
Just got my retrogamer copy where they have an article on it.
Not an enjoyable game.
Played it on my commie too. Was a good baseball sim.
no hi-score table. Looks & plays nice but once i am dead the game doesn't want to reload the menu screen. So a full reload is required which I didn't like.
I didn't have a video on the highest score. It seems that if I play in full screen, OBS just records a black screen for my Steam games...
Nice cab and nice work. Seems Derek and Larque have some Pandora competition
no hi-score table. Zoom in to see it better.
Thnx Bunsen ;)
Doh!!!! You're right. Posted wrongly. Will removed it asap. Thanks for noticing!
I found it quite enjoyable. Didn't play the Amiga version yet. But I believe, besides the better music, the Amiga version plays the same.
Tedious loading. And plays a tad too slow.
Start with course A. No hi-score table.
Hot patato. I just had a top 10 and already kicked out .
Approaching first place
aaargh... avoid... 24 quid
Hi and welcome. To raise your legit rate, you should add a screenshot of the actual TG16 and TV in one shot.
I'll vote yes since you're new here
Or use a watermark in your recorder. I use Debut Video Capture (for my webcam recordings) and OBS (for emu). Both you can add watermarks or any other kind of picture.
Will raise your vote quota but remember....Android/iOS games don't have a very popular rating here. So expect always to have some no votes. But keep on gaming.
Not my kind of game. Low sore.
Played with the Atari mouse (yes, with ball track; where is time :) )
Gave it a shot as I did read a lot of good stuff about this game back then. But it's very difficult to control your ship. Graphics do move very fluently.
Sorry for the bad view but this is designed like this... Dark score on dark background... You can have a better view in the last minute of my video.
There is a high score table but when you die you practically always restart (continue back to level 1 score 0) just by touching too long the fire button... also bad design.
No autofire used. Made it to stage 2.
Yes. Cry you little f*cker . It's a shame that score.
The 128K differs vs. the 48k version that it includes all events in one load (so no Day 1 or Day 2), adds 4 new events and of course better sound.
I still hate moustaches. :)
It is a great device that Everdrive for GBA. I bought one last year for my son. And the games still look pretty decent on a big screen too.
Being grey too I see. Haha. We're getting old
Yes. I played that but was doubting I was playing on Fair. So I dropped the recording. But it was my best... This recording is for 13100. Well. just 50 short. . Still a great presentation of US Gold.
I mean the A is me
argh. inserting your initals requires other key combo. So the G is me
I prefer this version over the C64 & Amiga. Maybe because the scrolling feels 'better'.
Made it for the first time to level 2.
Low score. Didn't like it too much.
It is not that high. On Expert level you start with 100K ;)
No hi-score table. Last and best run starts at 15"50.
Don't know how to return to the title screen. So recorded one session of several try outs. Expert level selection at beginning of video.
Don't you love those US Gold loading screens
Great arcade conversion. I only turned down the volume because the continuously playing 'song' is annoying.
There seems to be always one no voter on my scores...mmmm. Hope you enjoy it dude.
Nope. It didnt work either
From a time where companys just abused other people IP and got away with it.
Impressive! Great score.
You just need to search for the lamps. And bring them one by one back to the start. But I don't like games where there is an endless spawn of enemies. Certainly not when you walk to the side of the and they keep coming and drain your energy (but you can't shoot them because you're too close).
Pete Cooke from Tau Ceti fame. Technical excellent 3D effects for the Spectrum.
But the loading was a pain: 17 minutes for the 128k. I never seen that before. Low score.
Presentation/Graphics is much better than the gameplay. Not my cup of tea.
Must be worth a fortune now. Nice.
Indeed. But it already existed.
Yep. Nice non-violent game.
And yes it took several sessions to obtain this score but I expect a revenge pretty soon
First I didn't like this game as I hate endless enemy spawning games. You can easily point farm above my score if you want. But after some play I discovered you can destroy the graves if you first kill every enemy on screen. Then destroy the graves and no enemies will appear for that screen anymore when you return. Sometimes you need to use the garlic bomb (if you have one) to destroy the enemies at once. So there's a nice puzzle element also.
Find on each level one of the five pieces to destroy at the end the She Vampire.
I made it to level 2.
I missed your comment apparently. I just use WINVICE.
That's an eight and not a six ;)
Yes I saw it ;)
And they even 'simulated' the loading border (yellow/blue) during this scramble but the game wasn't actually loading in the background. Just to fool us :)
I will send the goods on Thursday
ah. Didn't know you can stop the time. Have overlooked that in the instructions. I use a car cassette adapter to load in the tape (wav) file from K7ZX tool. Works good, although it has no pauze button so for multiloads it doesn't work good. But I found out you can export it as wav file and then via VLC i can load also. And in VLC there is a pauze button.
Don't have a dedecicated tape player anymore. So currently I can only use the car adaptor in my +2.
I try to load in as much as possible .tap or .tzx files as in the 80s :)
35 years ago...man I am getting old...
Second screen is already too difficult for me slow brains :)
Nevertheless, a good addictive puzzler.
A tape loading nightmare. It takes 10 minutes (!) to finally play mission 1. Game over and then you to reload side B of the tape....aaarrggghh.
It didn't work with my DIVMMC plugged in. So probably with an emu it is more enjoyable.
Lovely details and color. But so sloooooww to play.
The highest score is from the Medium settings
A decent conversion. Not much sound, a bit slow but for the rest nicely detailed. Just played once, so a low score.
Yeah. Wished I had something like that nearby.
This is the correct version. First got confused as I remembered it was shooting...camels :)
But apparently that game was called Advance of the Megacamel which is also called Attack of the Mutant Camels in Europe. To make it confused. See Larquey's score for this submission. So Larquey's score should be posed in a new table. But ok. No big deal.
Voting yes. Cheers and welcome.
Well, I won't play this again for a long time.
Loved playing this on the Speccy
Yeah Frankie 'Speccy Master' is difficult to top. I think my top score is 60k. So your score is top too
I believe also one of the earliest games of THE Mike Singleton.
Took quite some time Frankie...phew
It played like a spectrum game too :)
It looks better than it plays. Screen is 'trop petit', even scrolls left & right and has monochrome bullets. So it's too hard on me eyes to enjoy.
counts last run
last run counts
Never really liked those Sorcery games. Not even on the Amstrad.
A quick puzzler budget game.
One of two tracks I completed (3 laps)... It was a very decent racer (1982) for its time.
Nope. A 1990 game from Hi-Tec.
lol, someone gave me a 'no' because he doubts I am playing this. Next time I'll play bud naked.
Nice budget game.
24" monitor inside an original 1979 Zaccaria (Galaxia) cabinet.
not a good game
Hi, can you resubmit using the scoring formula we use for the spectrum. So we are aligned. Thanks. Cheers
I hate leeching. I don't like point pressing as I don't like to play this way myself but it is not illegal. So a yes vote here
Voting here. I am also using OBS ;)
I even down rated the quality to have a small upload file. When you look at my videos you see it is still decent enough to provide proof. My recent 1942 ZX Spectrum submission lasted 13min. and was just 22MB to upload to Youtube. Have fun.
Sorry. F*cked up ith the hi-score. Don't know which to press to register your letter. Soit, was a nice run. I loaded this .tzx into my +2 via my old Kenwood car tape thing + k7ZX as tape loader.
Works flawless. Nothing better than watch (and hear) how it loads.
oh. good run starts at 1'20.
Thanks. That was fast :)
Played on Retropie lr-mame2003 version which has a very good response to my Namco Paddle controller. Other mame versions gave me color and sound but no paddle control or not sensitive enough.
A regular PC mouse.
oohh. damn it then :)
It says press J but it is the black cover.
Yeah. Got it here somewhere. I believe it was called Horizon.
Never played it back then as I don't like fighter games. But I do believe this was the first one on one fighter game.
Voted yes of course
Thanks for the vote. 100K is way out of my reach. I get ...cranky ... after playing Pacman after some goes :)
I do notice I swear a lot more when playing on the cabinet than when playing on my laptop. Guess because you're standing up and can smash or hit things more easily :)
Just trying out some 8-bit computer on Retropie.
Never got so far, so i am very happy with it.
A 1979 Zaccaria cabinet with Retropie.
Thanks. The cabinet is an original Galaxia from Zaccaria adapted with new screen and controls. I liked the look.
I do play the guitar but I am not as good as you are.
It's a Guild: http://guildguitars.com/g/m75-aristocrat/
Very lightweight electric guitar. Good for my bad back :)
Small improvement. a PB for me.
Played on retropie.
Aahh. 16K memories . One of my first games.
You already saw back then that Ultimate would become a superior software maker.
That multi cart was it expensive and where can I buy one? I haven't got an Astrocade yet, but if i see one ...
I am not handy either so I don't play with electronics :)
a yes vote as always. What happened to your CRT?
This site doesn't like decimal scores so we generally post scores like this times 10, so 6,6 = 66. See emu scores or any other x games score as an example.
Sorry for the last photo. Was my previous attempt.
Still not a good score. But okay for now.
Didn't complete stage 1 so just my score. Why times 1 million? This to discourage points farmers.
You're very good as this kind of games.
Keep those 8b computers coming Ill
Got myself another C64c after mine died several months ago. It's from Italy and looks brand new.
This game crashed on my breadbin. Didn't like it either although all mags gave good scores to it. Easy to beat.
Zzap was so wrong rating this game. Okay nice atmosphere and graphics but gameplay is short, tedious and quite boring. Played two times. Cartridge version used which has all in-scene graphics and limits loading time.
Good score. That top score is unreachable. Though I preferred seeing a video for that top score how he did that score in two hours.
Never played the other C64 version. But yes, once you get to know where to stand it's quite easy. A big let down there are only 2 screens. I read the tape/CRtT version have two screen and the disk version would have more but I tried the disk version and it's the same.
Pity about the AI flaw otherwise it would have been a nicer game.
Another Mr. Chip/Mastertronic game. Only released on the C64/C16.
Don't know how to get out that last screen.
Score achieved without the 'trick' Fredb999 & Kernzy applied by staying at the right and autofire your way up again and again. . I don't mind. Just saying it. Took me a while to get into the game. Give it a try, it's quite addictive after a while.
Indeed. Back then we kinda except it like it was normal.
No point farming. Used the Speedking joystick and my right foot to press the space bar. (Don't we (not) love games where you have to use that; Still a big flaw that Atari/Commodore/Sinclair didn't use the MSX joystick (with 2 buttons)). Soit, had a great play time for several hours. Just listen to that excellent music and tunes. One of my faves. Cheers.
Good score. I am not good at those pac games :)
Thanks. But not that great. I just played 2 times. The NES has a great version.
McKong, Nick etc are much better pong players.
My PC mouse like most of the others did here. I checked the videos of them first ;)
Thanks. Nice bartop you have. Mine is under 'repair'. Already 6 months... I just asked my money back. The guy has always some excuse.
Played on NTSC version.
Had some bad luck with the in-between bonuses. I own the orginal 48k version but not this 128k version (which just adds okayish sounds effects). The title tune plays a little faster than on my C64.
Voting Yes. The no voter is currently online i see.
Never liked those skating events . Too boring.
Great score! Voting yes here
I remember playing this. But only liked the SID music.
Don't think I ever had +40k on this one.
Very impressive. Super Talent. And even played on keyboard I believe
Thanks. I am a regular voter here so will do!
I had an amazing great first series of balls. I think i got 5 extra balls in the first set thanks to an early Double round. Got sloppy in the middle and tired but last few balls were okayish to obtain 4 billion.
One of fave tables.
Thanks. I think I played it with the Atari paddles. Makes it easier ;)
Yeah. I remeber this one. Was pretty good. But never got really that far.
I'll be damned
Very impressive. Never got that far.
Catching up my votes. Hope it clears now. Cheers
Don't give up. Mine are also 80's or 92% but oddly my last Pinball Arcade submission is still at 100% with one vote needed. So maybe it's getting better here ;)
I can't remember it well (almost 2 years i see) but I believe I used the joystick (firmly stuck it on the desk with my right hand and left tumb next to the keypad) and then with some left fingers touching the keypad. Terrible controls indeed. The game looked great nevertheless.
argh.. screwed up with the last two balls. Hoped to reach a billion.
Final wizard goal completed. At last...
Not my cup of tea. Although I've got all wizard goals, I don't know how you manage to get x BILLION on this table. You must be playing this 24h in one game...
Pathetic. Video desired... sigh
Indeed. Since December. I kinda lost interest and been busy with my other hobby (music). But I do frequently log in. Although the site gets really slow. Especially when voting. Too much number crunching I guess ;)
Voting always yes on yours & Tricksters scores. I have been away since december. I'll try a pinball score pretty soon to see how voting goes. Cheers.
I was waiting for this ;)
Thanks. Just hopping by. You can do better, I am pretty sure. I first played this on my C64C and although I read in Zzap about the voice samples I didn't hear anything. Must be because the C64C uses a slightly different SID chip. My C64C died shortly after; 2nd motherboard already.... Lucky I have a C64 breadbin in stock :).
During this emu play I enjoyed the samples. A nice one more try game. I flagged it in my favorites. cheers.
Thanks. And yeah these are great controllers. Even better than my hyperspin arcade bartop. Got 3 of them now. Bought them with the Tekken game in 1995 I guess and still operational.
Top play. I ment the guitar ;)
Hmm. I prefer having video proof. Staying in Level 1-1 with such a huge score.... Then you have the continues you can use... Can you post more evidence? Thanks
I rather not
Nope. Single since march again
Try this beer. You'll be singing after three of of them. I do
Lucky you. If I tell a woman I also play retro games they usually start to neglect me :)
Nice. Have fun with it!
no hi-score table. Nice looking platformer. Controls are great too. Just couldn't find the last item.
no hi-score table. relaunched the game to show the hi-score.
My humble C64C died while playing a previous bad game. This game is nowhere better. It even goes to the desktop once it's game over.
Seems you already tried this:
Guess you also have the latest drivers? I don't it can use save states on the fly. Just have to play like on a real cart I guess.
best rremove tthis. SScore not mmatching. SSkipping nnonnow
Nah. I don't like fighting games
It's typically that era. The programmer does his code and tests/plays it himself thoroughly. Probably completing the game at ease but forgets that casual players don't... There was zip play testing by others before the release. For most games it was great having a good challenge but for some, like this one, you eat your joystick
Last run = best run
No hi-score table. Forgot there was a time limit to complete the game.
Welcome here. Glad you relive your youth too
And nice setup and original carts. Looks all brand new.
I had this as a copy (on disk). Never really liked it. Although I do liked the SID sounds.
Yeah. I do like the size. It's better for growns ups than the tiny GBA SP I have. But the screen clarity just ..well sucks... .
Thanks god the supplier delivered a power supply with it. Six AA batteries !
Thanks for sharing and saying you did
Nice to know.
Thanks Ichi. Same here. Best part of the game is the music.
Cool. An instant no voter. Thank you!
One of the worst playable games I recently played on the C64. Even with keyboard controls it's f*cking hard to just jump diagonally. Zzap gave this 43% which is even too high. I just quit after some effort. And played Part 2 one time. Which sucks too.
The score is 8400. If you doubt it is a 6, watch the video first.
Not a bad 'one more try' game. Apparently it was also to be played with C64 Lightgun. Didn't find the game on Lemon...but it was on MobyGames.
Put some more effort in how to decently play this game. Watched a Youtube video but that guy can instantly stop over a key. I can't figure a decent stop..grrr.
This is the original version which is the hardest one. Note that the re-release was alternated in difficulty (read: easier). See Wikipedia for more info. Didn't know they did.
No hi-score table. It goes straight to the title screen. You ought to think programmers should at least mention the last score in the title screen. Not that much programming work...
Never played it back then. And it growed upon me. Nice little arcade game for 1.99 UKP back then.
Noooooo. You beated me
Voted yes. One of my faves back then. Long time I saw the real cabinet.
My newest HW addition. And yes that screen is hard to see. But at least the GG works. My first order didn't...
No hi-score table. Normal level. Low score.
Just 3 diamonds... Too difficult for me. No hi-score table.
My best try for now. Note that when you finish the game you get some points more but this is rectified in the hi-score table. See position 1.
You always have some fine original stuff.
Top. I actually never played it . Altough I played Sabre Wulf, Firelord and Wizard's Lair. And now I see it's kinda the same gameplay.
I knew it was crap and it still is. Just had one go. No hi-score table.
Note that for the C64/Amstrad there were two versions. This is the Melbourne House version which was the most common version. The Ocean version was only released on cartridge and is very rare. A worthy read: https://stiggyblog.wordpress.com/2012/03/26/double-dragon-ocean-commodore-64/
This showed the C64 could handle multi scrolling very good. Best played with two players. Was fun back then.
Anyone still remembers those Commodore Disk User magazines? It cam with a .... disk... loaded with applications and tools. And once in a while a rather nice game. Like this one. I kinda liked it.
An Ultimate games. I think there were some 4 dragons to beat. Don't know anymore. Reason why I requested completion bonus is because at some parts you can point gather. And there are some people here who love to do that. This way, if you complete the game you will be first. Not like e.g. that Minnie Mouse game ;)
Unless you farm points 24h...
First time I see a pure adventure game here.
Played on my Android JXD tablet. Sorry for the blurry first pic.
Played on my Android JXD tablet.
You won with that word
Was 1490 possible? If so, I recommend posting it like that. Just in case someone has 14.91 ;)
If not, we should stick to *decimals
This was a great machine back then.
Odd. If I search on Portal or Epic Quest I see the existing ones. Don't search on Pinball FX. There are already three versions now...
Incredible. Voted yes. People should watch the TG site first before voting No.
I always thought you were german
Because FB caused lots of troubles in the family/friends environment. Stories like: 'hey, you didn't like my picture or so'... plus, I don't need to let the world know that I just cleaned my house
Played in bed on my JXD Android tablet. So no video ;)
I have no Facebook, so no hi-score table nor power ups available/used.
Played in bed on my JXD Androind tablet. So no video ;)
Last snapshot is start of round 12 so i completed 11 rounds. And then stopped as I was getting bored with it. But it was fun for a while.
It's starring Hello Kitty so I guess it's a kiddo game.
He probably used autofire. hahahaha
This guy is here for a long time. Voting 'No' 'Other' is easier as the buttons are close to the submit button I guess. I doubt we can see comments written. I don't care ;)
Ha. There is still one guy always voting no. You must be very proud of yourself.
No hi-score table. Webcam driver suddenly crashed, that's why there are two parts.
Lol. I remember this one
No hi-score table. The modern version has no score system at all...
Well. It's not a commercial game.
Don't worry. I get a no vote for every game. Guess there is one guy who doesn't like me . Keep those old 8-bit computer scores coming. cheers.
no hi-score table. Reminded me a bit of Crossfire
Early 80s UK Synthpop and a bit of New Wave.
Always good too !
You can buy them fairly cheap with some games includeing for 50€ or so. I have two now, but still not played them. Too many games & systems , too little time
Yeah. Will be one the of the first games I'll replay when I fire up my MSX2 again. Original cartridges go +600 $/€. So Flashcards are welcome gifts.
Yeah. 8-bit computer gaming . Never understood why they sticked to the Atari one button standard. Probably because hardware makers thought you only required one button (Galaxian, Galaga,....) They should have implemented at least two, like the MSX. Although the MSX had terrible joysticks...
My score looks pathetic vs. yours
I'll be damned
Excellent. Never played it but finishing a game is always great.
A Yes here! Trickster will have some 48h continuous play ahead to beat this
And sorry. It's position 8. It's an odd thing that my better score is lower stated in the hi-score table. Must be a bug.
Whole game see video.
Here you go:
no hi-score table. Quite funny animation.
Where do they get all those weird game ideas.
Stoneagegamer is a reseller from Krikkz fyi. He is from Ukraine, so for me it was better to order directly. Although first I was sceptic. But it (and the other Everdrives) all came ok. Guess for US, Ukraine is a bit suspicious/higher in risk.
Never played consoles back then. But the Amstrad CPC version was very good.
It's a Krikkz version.
And no, those SA-1 games are not working. And probably will never be. I bought the SD2SNES based on the table. I do like the autopatching so I can play US versions.
I use the SD2SNES Everdrive and currently everything works very well. It loads quick and plays all NTSC games. (I prefer playing US versions but I guess I require a US/JAP SNES to really enhoy 60hz).
Some US games don't load first giving me the message my PAL system isn't supported but you just have to quick push the reset button and then it loads the game
It's expensive but worth the price. I thought you also had one.
I apparently forgot to add it. Here it is. Cheers.
It looks nicer than it plays. It's a bit 'woody'.
Good. I liked it.
Yeah. I thought lots of (famous) Americans where going to move to Canada when Trump won
Great score. Never played the Arcade version but loved the C64 version. +100k is out of my reach.
And... did you already see some Americans
No hi-score table. Very nice. And difficult. Thanks to the Everdrive we can play this one. 85$ is a bit too expensive for a prototype cartridge. Final released in 2012/2013.
Indeed. Although the graphics, sprites and animation are very nice and colourful. It's one of those platform games you play once and you get after one hour already so far....
Great game. Great score.
Quit the game with 12 lives left. Had to go.
Great setup. One of the missing consoles I wish to have. They are so expensive. Last bit I lost at 200€ (boxed with some boxed games).
Very nice score. I never got the 200K barrier. It's one of those games you keep on coming back once a year .
Can't submit on this site with ",". So I'll submit it like this.
Never liked this event. So boring.
Impossible to post with the ",". So I post it like that.
An oldy from august 2015. As E2E4 emulated score, I'll post it also like this (without ","). Seems impossible to submit like that.
An oldy from July that finally got processed :)
Thanks. I always liked paddle games since my first 'contact' with video games was with a TV pong system somewhere 1977 or so.
But the SNES version is totally different than the 8-bit computer versions. I didn't reach the end boss. There are (several) mid-level bosses. gr
Amazing. Must be a TG WR record?
I bought this one as I am too clumsy .
You gave yourself some points too short (typo error). Voting yes nevertheless ;)
When you have a first place legit, you get 1000 for the WR and 1000 points per beaten player. Plus another 500 for the national record. And another 100 for your state and local town record. Plus 100 if you clicked on the 'goal' button for the score you wanted to beat.
So if you have 5 scores in the table and you have a WR.
You get 1000+(5*1000)+500+100+100+100
It has nothing to do with the legit percentage
I have the Speccy original box and it was a great conversion. Voting yes of course.
More than mame. Almost 5 TB of retro goodies . I've opted for the bartop as this has less 'presence' in the living room. And you can take it easily with you for family parties or so.
Upper left. Branded avatar or name in my videos
First try out on my new Hyperspin bartop with Galaxian theme. I don't record sound with the webcam.
Mighty score you have there Ichi. Even better than Starsoldiers one. A difficult shooter.
Don't worry too much about some no votes. I believe it's getting lesser now since the summer vacation. I had sometimes 4 or 5 no votes back then. Now max. 2.
And yes, The Trickster is a pinball whore (Just joking, he Trickster )
Damn man. Those ghosts don't even get blue after a while. Great scorE.
Hi E2E4. It is probably not your fault but this game already exists in the dbase under 'Wonder Boy'. And this for several platforms.
Thanks. Looking forward for your scores ;)
Excellent music. No hi-score table.
Not easy indeed to found something. Plus there are different interfaces and not all interfaces support all the games.
Please note joystick is 'manette' in French. So when on Ebay try that too. But currently none are available.
Maybe post a request here:
It had quite some support in Europe, especially in France. Ah , those times.... masses of different brands. Always difficult to pick the right one. Now, as grown ups, we can them all
it's ok. But typically you play for 45 min. the first time and then encounter some more difficult bosses. And then you don't want to replay all 45 minutes again. I never had a console in the past. I started with PSX after my 8 bit/PC period. But i notice there are a lot of 16 bit beat em ups having the same 'issue'.
You should copy the URL instead of the one you're using. Then it will work.
Our July/August scores were under other dipswitch settings, nl. 2 Lives and 10K bonus live. This was for IGBY tournament. So maybe I'll have a retry for a better score. But your score is too good
Easy is the default setting. So this is ok.
Default setting = Normal. No hi-score table.
Indeed very good score.
Hey rgh. Should be submitted under mame
Skipping for now. Cheers.
default settings = normal.
Normal (default) settings. No hi-score table.
Well, that music sounds familiar :)
Sorry for the blurry picture but this doesn't give you any time to take a close-up nor does it have a hi-score table. If you doubt, please watch the last couple of minutes of the video. cheers.
Cute platformer. Completed all 4 stages of "Cave Capers". Had to leave during stage 1 of "Snow Business". So the score = 4*100.000 + 208.780 = 608.780. Why this formula? To reward you for completing a stage and to minimize point farming during a stage.
Settings shown at the beginning of the video.
Very good score. I wonder why you waste 2 'lives' on the jump event. But I saw Kernzy does that too. Is there a difference in rom as I saw yours was Konami/Centuri and Kernzy's just Konami. Probably not, but I just noticed it during the high jump event. Voting yes btw. Cheers.
Good eye Larquey. Skipping too. Pat, better remove this and submit to correct category. Cheers.
Almost beaten DBCooper who is a very good player btw. Voting yes. Cheers
Aaargh... so close man
Nice. I had this one I was young. Pity at that time parents at that time just throw it away when you don't play it for a long time...
Nice. Two no votes already of which one 'I have an issue with the tactics used to achieve this score'. Any problem I quit the game with 4 lives left ? Sigh. Yes. you do get extra lives during the game. Sorry he. Soit.
I to quit the game with some lives left as i had to leave. Great graphics. Good platform arcade game.
You nailed that one S. Baz is a master in Dig Dug so cracking his score is always hard.
Voting Yes. You should buy the real Colecovision hardware now . Seems you're mastering all Coleco games.
Settings = HARD
Default system = NORMAL
Excellent game and graphics. I found just the music a bit too cheesy.
Don't know it. Looks more like a Spectrum computer game
Voting yes btw. Cheers
Skipping now. I will be happy to vote yes once this is submitted under MAME.
Very nice system by the way. Can't wait till my Galaxian bartop will be ready. Cheers.
default settings. No hi-score table.
It seems Mark is still active too.
I am not a great Bomberman player. Odd thing is that even if you don't 'Continue', when you start a new game, it keeps your previous score. So a video is required here. gr
No hi-score table. Pity about the tedious jumping.
Yes too. So, any progress on your visual pinball machine?
Yes. Same here. It's about time Serious handles this, otherwise there will be no new players joining in anymore...
A yes too. Loved that sitcom. And it's merci pour Mantalow. He's a Frenchie
I'll add a yes. Plus, Derek is a good guy, believe me. Cheers and enjoy gaming.
Add 20 and you've got my age
It's about time Serious takes some action. It's getting worse. Maybe we should call the Ghostbusters, the 80s version...
This is the English fan translated version. No hi-score table.
Just a try out. Wanted to see what game it was ;)
Played on my JXD Game tablet. I have no Facebook so i took my ID like this.
Not a good score. I should concentrate on making Tetris over & over again. But had some fun. Cheers
Thanks. I only had Knight Lore and Sabre Wulf back then. And played them to death. Only Sabre Wulf though I completed.
[[92% * 100,000] + 135060] = my score of 9.335.060
SNES+Everdrive = NO emulation.
One of my faves Speccy games.
SNES+Everdrive = No Emulation
I am no fighting gamer so OG will definitely improve this one ;)
Another thank you. Voting yes on your scores too ;)
Thanks. I still get hit by 4 no votes on all my scores.
SNES+Everdrive whichi is NOT emulation. For those who vote no for that reason, please read the rules here or at TG.
Easy is default setting but way too easy. Even for me. Completed this.
No hi-score table. Sorry for the blurry score. Gold score = hi-score.
thanks. That was fast
No hi-score table. Those enemies made me smile the first time i saw them.
No hi-score table. Plays the same as the Amiga but obviously graphically/soundwise less impressive.
Voting yes. A classic. I still can hear the sounds.
I use Mobygames all the time as a good and valid info source. I use their info to feed my front end. See the trivia part.
Everdrive is NOT emulation. sigh.
Hold down your fire button so you control your little friend to pick up the drops you shoot.
It's the SD2SNES version which supports all enhancement chips.
Fun take on Lemmings. But never was a hardcore fan of Lemmings. I stopped playing after an hour or so.
Saved this SNES from someones trash. You don't see it, but it has big hole at the right front. And it is yellow as my late grandmothers single tooth. Cleaned the inside. Then bought me an Everdrive. Just a random game.
I can't seem to pin down that monster. Although i do press A when on top of him.
Indeed. Reminds me of a Speccy tape loading
Nice platformer and sounds. Had to go for lunch while playing my last rabbit.
Like usual at that time, when you die, you have to replay the entire level from start. Including all the items you already took.
It did took a while to load even on the CF WHDload I use. But the graphics are worth it. It's certainly not a platform game where you can rush. You have to watch every step and even then jumping on enemies is very risky. I liked the music and FX too.
Voting yes. When playing back the video e.g. in VLC, you can take snapshots.
Resubmitted with correct score. Thanks Frankie.
oeps. Correct. Looks let a typo. Will remove it. thnks for the notice.
I am not a good ninja. Very low Score. No hi-score table.
Sorry for the blurry hi-score. Too difficult to take a decent picture of red on black. It's 3x 111 and 2x 00.
Pity you don't get big points solving a puzzle or bribing the old man.
Voting yes. Ahhh. 5"25 floppies wasn't it? Where is the time
A yes vote here. Loved to play this when the fair came in town. It made a hell of noise
Voting yes. Nice bartop. I am waiting for mine to be assembled with Hyperspin. I asked to add a spinner but he said it would be too crowded/small on the board. But now i see you have made a trackball and it does look ok for me.
I bought myself recently a 'ground loop isolator'. It costs 8€ and now i don't have the noise anymore.
Well, a yes vote here. Indeed, this site should be more fun. This is not TG
Oui. It's useless. Even with video. They're just abusing the system.
I even think it's just one or two persons with multiple accounts. Serious should put a brake on this and people should only be able to vote when they have a legit score posted in the past.
That's why i said it would be nice to see next to the top users a new table the percentage of yes/no/skip votes per account.
This doesn't show to whom you voted no but it will give a good view on people's behaviour. Someone who votes 60% or more no votes shouldn't be allowed here. This is no Twin Galaxies, it's for fun. And now my fun to post scores tumbles down.
I can easily create a second UK account as on my work, we break out (internet) via the UK. And then start voting yes or no's. But would I do this? I just enjoyed this site for it's many platforms and the difference between emu and real hw. And to have some competition.
Hey Ichi. I saw you're already in the number one slot with a much higher score. Any reason for this post?
I wish Serious suddenly posts the number of no votes in % per account Up till now. I think there will be some surprises. I just got a no vote streak on all open submissions. Most already have 4 no's. I post videos etc even showed me playing but it doesn't help...
Indeed. All my scores get 4 no votes (other). I keep asking myself if its worth making videos. If it goes to 5 i consider stopping completely.
That was a quick no vote. I just posted this. I hope you're happy doing what you're doing. You must be very proud to yourself...
Intense multi scroling shooter. Had to watch the video to really enjoy the great graphics. Great music & tunes too.
thanks for the info.
I read many good things about this classic but never played it. So I guess 74 missions is a very good score :)
ps: if the score on the snapshot is too unclear. Please watch the video (end score at 12'). No hi-score table (again).
Nice 'SNES like' platformer but it shows the biggest flaw of gaming on these platforms: Only one fire button. Pushing up makes you jump which is very annoying. Plus, most of the time you don't see what's under you.
If anyone knows how to have two fire buttons (like on the MSX) for the Amiga, please let me know. It would make games like this more enjoyable.
Received also my 'ground loop isolator' so better sound recording now.
Already 4 no votes 'Other'. Why do i invest time in making videos....
Nice original equipment. Voting yes.
Hi and welcome here. I voted yes but you should add more proof next time to have a better legit rate ;)
Bought this fine Wico controller yesterday at a retro game event. Nice controller and easy on the wrist.
A yes too. Just topped mine. It's already a year ago i played this...
Apparently Mangiaboy also requested this. So here is my submission.
Top Ten worst game of Amiga/ST
Normal / Normal
Raved in the magazines but I didn't like it too much. Only played it once.
It's also odd that he/she has subscribed on my youtube channel recently. Odd, because I don't have anything to post other than uploading unlisted hiscore submissions.
I've ordered a ground loop isolator. So the humming noise from my laptop will hopefully be gone after installing it. It just costs 6 euro.
Playing on battery solves it too, but then my laptop only survives for an hour.
The score isn't that good compared to the emu submissions. Maybe the Genesis version has other score system/difficulty.
My wrist got very tired at the end. Or is it my age :)
Love the intro tune. Great 80s schmupper.
I always thought you would make a Visual Pinball table one time ;)
I once saw a guy who also had Pinball Arcade running on it.
Nice graphs, bad gameplay
Always go the head chop Not a great score either. Hi-score table top score goes grey once filled in.
Great score! I love the sound effects in this game.
didn't play it yet. But I guess a very good score :)
I see Mark is still active too.
Already a happy bday. September 1, back to school here in Belgium
By holding the fire button a tad longer. Like for using the grenade in Commando. One the biggest flaws they (all 16b computers) did by following the Atari standard. They should have introduced 2 fire buttons. The MSX did it before....
Position 8. Odd, every time i start a level I get killed instantly and loose a live...
My happy no-voter is quick
Thanks Benzi. Yeah. A great CRT tv. Colourful and flat as an LCD.
Great score. And yes it is more enjoyable than the 8 bit versions. Although wasn't impressed by the overall game (at least not for the Amiga power).
Sorry about the humming noise. I can't seem to fix it. I know it is coming from my laptop as when I remove the power plug it makes no noise. But then again, my laptop runs much slooower. Maybe I should buy a anti hummer box.
Thanks. Searched for long and then suddenly a good opportunity came by (30 minutes from my place) . I also received my Colecovision today. So double pleasure
Finally back to my own place. And a first test, after some demos, with the new A1200/WHD/CF ready.
Hi, don't know much about NES games and this game in particular. So how can we see this is track 1?
Thanks for the thumbs up! 3M is good
Thanks for the thumbs up!
It seems like programmable by hardware :)
But now you can use a 2nd fire button to replace the space bar? Or is that still limited with this device to one button?
Looks nifty like a code machine.
I ment the PC game, Pinball Arcade on Steam. You should try that. Or (Visual) PinMame.
Seems you're enjoying the Vega a lot. Still some letters to go
The closest i got was Narbonne and the Camargues. Great views there.
I see a new Pinball Player. Welcome here. Playing some Pinball Arcade too?
You're cracking Mark's scores. He has been out since a long time but i do see hime sometimes logged in into Steam.
Never was a big fan of Gauntlet. Should be played with a friend to enjoy it more.
A random Speccy game. Not a bad budget game. Why the formula? To disencourage score farmers. As you can stand and shoot aliens forever.
So 3 grenades * 1.000.000 + 6500 end score = 3.006.500. No completion bonus. There are 8 grenades to find and to shoot on the boss alien. But you can only carry one at once.
Thanks Phoenixlord. Looking forward to your submissions. Cheers
Great score !
I guess you already tried to install the latest DirectX version.
Have you tried this: https://obsproject.com/forum/resources/directx-dependency-fixer-dxfix.87/
As an alternative I also have:
Which works ok. I sometimes use it for webcam purposes but the output files tend to be much higher in Mb than OBS. If you want a key, just ask me ;)
You get a black screen? or other issues? I know Windows 10 changed a lot of the GPU drivers etc. which OBS makes heavily use for a game capture or windows capture. Have you tried to use Windows 7 compatibility? (go to properties by right clicking on the OBS icon and then choose compatibility).
In OBS settings/video make sure the resolution settings are 1920x1080 if you screen has this natively supported. If you choose a smaller resolution than your desktop resolution, you'll have a smaller picture recorded.
In settings/encoding I use quality balance 5 and a max. bitrate of just 1000 kb/s. The audio encoding is just 64Kb/s and Mono. This all to lower the recorded file size. It is more than sufficient for retro game captures.
You made a new arcade panel
Just a quick shot on the Dolphin emulator. Which is damn fine emulator. This compilation doesn't add much added value. Just some low resolution scanned flyers etc. No unlockable items/goodies.
Best 16b version. Pity Amiga/ST versions aren't like this. Odd though they added another 3 difficulty levels. (Medium is default). Not a very high score.
There are two or three girls always voting no. Whatever reason.
One thumbs up here.
Easy Street; Comes close to the arcade version. Including the speech and the conga sound.
There are tons of versions
Respect for the number one submission. This is a very tough version. Plus, you don't receive a subscription bonus per house at the end of the day.
Great. I never succeeded doing that..; in any version i played.
Yeah, since a couple of weeks I get at least two no votes per submission. Sad persons. But keep playing :)
I already tested my GBA Everdrive on my son's Gamecube successfully. Just had a problem with the brand of SD cards. My Sandisk were no good. Seems Kingston works.
Already cracked me score ;) woot
A yes here
Nope. Unfortunately not. See:
Make that 45. Here in Belgium we require to work till 67
Now that's coincidence. I was just reading some reviews for this conversion and about to load this game up too. Seems you also got the Everdrive GBA. I've received mine also last week. Works flawlessly.
I prefer the Lynx version.
You're becoming an uber schmupper :)
I remember that hot girl
Nice conversion. But can't get that Handy emulator decently working for the sound. All choppy.
Thanks for those. I'll note them down for later use. I recently bought a A1200 with a CF full of whdload games, accelerator card and 7MB RAM for a nice price. Was looking for that for a long time. Hope to play on it pretty soon. cheers.
Another missed conversion. Looks good until you play it. Plus I tried 6 copies and all versions crashed the menu after the first play.
Hi Derek, you should post this under "Street Fighter II: The World Warrior [sf2]" ;)
cheers. Skipping for now.
Played with IGBY 2016 rules, meaning 3 lives instead of 4. See dip switch settings at beginning of video;
Completing it seems still way out of reach.
Thanks for the thumbs up..
thnx. Never played this classic decently until now.
Thanks. Was quite happy with this score. But I saw on IGBY it isn't that good :)
I use this site to get the ISO's I miss. Most of the time there on it.
As everyone for the IGBY tournament posts their MS scores here, I'll do too. First time I got so far and then I jump just in the deepness.
Submission includes video with watermark tag, final score, hi-score table and default dip switch settings (press F2).
Indeed. This was the last conversion. I recently do this. It's fun to discover the differences between versions.
Indeed. Better proof now. Voting Yes. Cheers.
Well, i just bashed on all 6 buttons most of time. Don't want to study moves. Not my kind of games.
IGBY 2016 submission
IGBY 2016 submission.
IGBY 2016 submission. 6x my PB. So ok for me.
Low score; Just had one go to see how it was. At least it has some decent Adlib music.
IGBY 2016 submission. Well, I kissed the girl.
Never thought about building such a thing?
Yes. And I did vote yes. Some weeks ago already ;)
Great score. Seems you're enjoying a lot of Atari games recently. I just read your Space invaders blog. Didn't know about the 'saucer trick'. Nevertheless, I prefer the fun way of playing :)
Been a while since you posted some new stuff. Cheers
You did it again. Another great score and thanks for sharing the info. Cheers.
No issues he Maxwel. But the beginning of the month score card was ideal to show something. We can't do much better up till now...
Didn't know Kim had a twin sister.
10.30 here. Did some more yes votes on the latest scores. No NO votes on them yet. And the 3 none score submitters didn't move either.
Well, glad we filtered. i think this is the best evidence we can get for now. Some people maybe will think not, but let them give more proof then. I don't mind getting a no vote, but if you get since the last two weeks constantly 2 no votes without a reason, it's foul play.
We'll both be targeted more now probably but I don't care anymore. There are enough adult people on this site. Cheers and good night.
Lol. I was about to post that snapshot too. As they forgot it is the beginning of a new month. I thought people without a legit submission couldn't vote? Ah.... it was couldn't submit in the discussion are. But maybe this rule should be applied also for the voting. Mamefan, mads, aligator seems to have no submitted scores, they just come in and vote.
i trust the other people.
I just voted yes on all recent scores (ichi, dugger, omargeddon, wayne, pacchamp) and this is the new result:
I am pretty sure, one or two constant no voters will drop off then.
As an admin, we should be able to dig this deeper. Hope Serious reads this.
cool. AAlready ttwo nno vvotes
First time I played this nice 8 bit conversion.
Finally passed those bikers after some attempts. But didn't notice in the beginning it is important to pick the correct door to get any further. Otherwise it loops endlessly. Hoped those end bosses were the final ones but didn't pass through.
great score. Serraxor is tough to beat.
Is this still in season 5? The GUI seems changed too
Okay. But isn't that the purpose of this Team play category? To count the scores up? Never played it.
One of my first Speccy games. Do you a good site where you can DL all homebrews in one single zip file?
Looks excellent. Although I still don't like the game.
I kinda liked it. Found it very original. Best played with mouse and keys together.
Correct. Same goes for the Atari ST.
It's a good device. I use the same thing for my cpc128 and atari st. And others possible too. Just change the root files on the SD or USB stick. I bought mine at Amigastore.eu. So good investment.
A though game
Thanks for the thumbs up. Since then I receive at least 2 no votes on every submission. Even on computers. Which I never had before. So it's kinda of a personal vendetta to lower my legit rating. A sad attitude. But i'll keep posting submissions
It's very hard to take pictures on those moments. Only my son bought 3 Gamecube games as he received from his grandfather 60 old pounds. And guess what. They were expired. The vendor didn't want to take them so in the end I had to cough up the money .
The shops were also very expensive. No bargains to catch.
Man, the Amiga has so much terrible conversions... a pity.
At first sight, it looks like a good copy of the arcade version, but when you start playing...stiff and jerky control system. Speccy version is still the best.
Yes indeed. And it seems my two personal no voters are asleep (finally). 6.45 pm here.
I noted it down last time:
To load the other game boot the game from Drive 1
Forgot how anoying this was to play. How did this pass quality control. You use the joystick to move and the cursor keys for your attack moves. Space bar to duck. I didn't even use that.
Just made it
IGBY 2016 submission. Showing video+default dipswitches+end screen+hi-score table.
One knife and instant kill. doh. Still, my PB for this game.
Guess you tried the Outrun cabinet as you're a pro on driving games . Pity it wasn't the Ferrari cabinet.
Yeah. I even receive 4 no votes on other scores. But ok, if those people are happy with it.
I don't know how you configured OBS, but add MAME as a Gamecapture. You have to run MAME before doing that as otherwise you will not see it in the drop down list were you can select the program you want to record.
I use the regular MAME x64 DOS version.
I also added my name tag/avatar on the left top. This should be on top of the 'source' list. If not, it will be hided by your recorded program (as it takes a full screen capture).
The only other thing I changed in the settings of OBS are in 'Video'. Adapted the resolution to my native monitor screen (1920x1080) and then lowered the resolution to record (set at 2.0). This will make sure the recording isn't too big. Most of mine are between 20-40 MB (or even less for shorter games). Initially, I had set it to 2.5, but I have a high speed inernet line.
Last thing I did was to set some short cut keys to record and stop recording on the fly. So when playing full screen, I just need to tap Shift+R to start recording for example.
Good luck. Shout when you need help.
IGBY submission. Default dipswitches shown + Video + end score.
For the no voters, the white box is a Saturn. Don't have a better shot.
ah ok. Compris
Just came back from a weekend UK at Margate Winter Gardens Playexpo event.
Will post some scores. Pardon me for not posting a video or having unclear photos. It's very difficult taking pictures with so much crowd around you and with a lousy mobile or games showing for 3 seconds the score. ;)
Last submission from the event. There were quite a lot of Saturn consoles present.
You were there? Me too.
Great score. I envy your stamina to continue playing those pinball games over and over. :)
So how does this play vs. the arcade version? As crappy as Bionic Commando, Commando, and other conversions?
After the intro text of level 1, the DSK led blinks red. So I thought it went wrong but after some seconds it suddenly started playing. I had Disk 2 inserted in DSK1 but I don't think it uses DSK1.
Try this version: http://www.planetemu.net/?section=roms&dat=754&action=showrom&id=1075736
Disk 1 of 4. Search via 'Recherche'
I just played 10 seconds in the first level. It has nice speech too.
Used my custom made A500 config set (based on yours) but now I can play full screen without frame drops.
Voting yes. And hi-speed connection here too
That Duggerman is currently the king of Coleco. So tough to beat.
The muscle from Brussels . Still a classic movie.
I also believe this game was the first 'one vs one' fighting game launched. Although I might be mistaken.
Great score. Never was good at it. Only played the Speccy version a few times.
It's funny to see people go crazy during this event. Wait a minute. Date = 1990.
Thanks for sharing.
Never played it and so I am not aware of glitches. Can't see it also in the pictures. But I believe Oyama. So skipping now. No 'no' vote either
Seems the sound has some issues. Still prefer the cartoony T&F though. Voting Yes here.
Indeed. Not all pictures are required here. But a Yes vote here.
Voted yes in the weekend. Which hardware are you using by the way?
A yes vote here.
I don't think you give me a personal no vote on each game
Nope. No tournaments as I don't like Street Fighter, FIFA or HALO. HALO I do like, but only offline. Thanks for the thumbs up.
Not on the retro machines. There were FIFA, Halo and Street Fighter competittions though. Search on Play Expo. There are tons of those events in your country ;)
Last pinball machine I could play at the end of this great retro weekend. I couldn't play Metallica, so I gave this two shots. It was a fun weekend and particular nice to see some of those arcade cabinets back again. Although couldn't convince my son to play them. He liked the pinball machines though and would like that i buy one. Hehe. Too expensive!
The only game where i could enter my initials.
I saw it per accident in Retro Gamer a few months ago when I wanted to go on vacation with my sun. We first went to London and then went straight to Margate. Feet hurt after two days standing ;)
Well, you're lucky to live in the UK as we don't have such events here at that scale. Only modern game events or 2nd hand market/expo.
Just had 4 tries (showing in the picture). Not a great score. It stood next to the Metallica machine which was loud and noisy . I couldn't play Metallica, as it was too popular. Couldn't hear much of the Family Guy sound & tunes. I liked the little Stewie pinball machine. Nevertheless a fun table. I believe it exists as a Pinball FX2 machine but it is completely different.
Yeah. That's the one i remember when being a teenanger (10). Thanks for the pic. I thought it used to have a stick but apparently not. Thanks for the vote.
Thanks for the thumbs up. I am not that big (1m84). Must be the angle of the photo my son took.
Some cabinets came in their non original form (like Galaxian). A pity. But it was for me also a long time since i played this on a real cabinet+rom board. None of the present cabinets were Jamma in one or so cabinets.
The game was still very popular. Only had two plays.
Thanks for the thumbs up. It looked more like a TV furniture.
On my first day I played some 5 pinball machines (of the ten) and only this one came out clear on the pictures. As i forgot my self made card, I used a Playexpo leaflet. Hope you see. A kid was so friendly to put the paper on the table. All pinball machines had too high hi-scores to enter initiales. But this table I was getting good at. Pity too much crowd. It's not like Pinball Arcade where you can re-try for hours after hours. :)
Didn't play it via the Oculus Rift VR thing; you've got to have a good stomach. After 3 minutes I already felt nauseous :)
Defender now. First time i play it after almost 30 years. As playing it in on Mame is not the same. Here you at least the real controls. And damn it is difficult. But addictive. At least that's was I found. Most people didn't even finished there 3 lives... tsss
Never liked Mario and never will I am afraid :)
Look at those hi-scores. They could at least resetted them. It was pretty depressing after seeing your own score.
On the first day i forgot my 3M paper and had to improvise. Sorry if you can't seem name clear. Not a pretty hi-score but it stood well during the day. It was also obvious that the teenage kids gave up so quickly on most of those old arcade cabinets. They prefer Minecraft or so ;)
I can't remember this came in such an awful cabinet though. Left and right even uses different buttons which doesn't play comfortably.
Sorry for the flashy picture but my camera shutter on my mobile is so slooow. Look at the high hi-score. There were several cabinets with amazing hi-scores, but here not as high as master Baz. ;)
Nice to play a game where you just can use one hand
Ended the last day on this beautiful restored Space Invaders cabinet.. I forgot how difficult this game was. When there was a fair in our town it stood next to Galaxian, which i preferred.
Yep. There were some 10 tables. I couldn't play all or make a good picture. As the hiscore tables were pretty high ;)
And too difficult to take a good picture. But I'll post some.
Played only twice. As too crowdy. And made a pretty good score. My 2nd best and best on a real machine. The controls were excellent. Someone was breathing down my neck as it seems I was beating his previous hi-score ;)
In the end I saw he made 46k :)
As admin I could ask Serious to see who's online now. You vote no the instant i uploaded. Kid.
Not actually a good score I thought. And just not beaten Ichi I see now ;)
Get lost you moron no voter. If you've got nerfs, show your identity.
Almost 30 years since i played the real machine. Forgot how excellent that paddle controller works.
Next to the arcade cabinets and pinball machines there were some rows with pretty much all the consoles and computers ever launched. Although didn't see the Oric 1.
This is the MSX2 version of Bomb Jack released in 2004 (homebrew). Which plays excellent. The only difference with the arcade version is that you only receive 10k instead of 50k when completing all fusing bombs. Kernzy and Frankie would love this version ;)
Here I am in action with 1942. Picture taking by my son who joined me on the weekend. Was surprised none 1942 scores were posted on a real cabinet. Cheers
It is quite easy. Frankie and I already use it. Me on my ST and CPC128 as I use the same Gotek for both. For my A500 I intended to do it too but I just won a bid on an A1200 in excellent white condition wth 8 GB flash card + blizzard 1220 accelerator, 7MB RAM and WHDload ready.
Next week I go and get it.
Hey DB, the video is set on private. Skipping now .
Well I hope he gets mature soon because after my critics to several of his 'hi-scores' I get a negative vote on every submission I do. Prior to that, i only received an occasional no vote on MAME.
If he isn't my 'personal' no-voter, then let him speak openly he isn't.
Bookmarked. Interesting is that th eflashcard can also be used on the 6128/464+ series. Hmmmm. Shall i ...
Cool. Do you a link with more info about that flajsh cart and where to purchase it? Thanks
Yes. That's thru. Fotgot to mention that. But who still burns CD's today?
Yeah. And you can still buy them from some spare stock sellers. All new and boxed:
I always want to click it as it is fairly cheap. But with just one game included and not even 30 available..... Even with a flash card (don't know if that exists)....
Excellent score. I can't top that.
I am searching for an A1200 to play the AGA games, but like the Colecovision and Vectrex so high in price...
Had to search for an emulator which plays CDs as MagicEngine doesn't.
This version has some gameplay differences in soµme areas and has some additional spot effects. Albeit I found the controls a bit more difficult. And has a hi-score table.
Loved playing this on the C64. Never knew it was from an arcade cabinet.
Almost doubled mine. Voting yes.
I accidentally choose this game and came as a nice surprise. The first platform stage is good. Then it goes to a plain shooter. But didn't pass that. I played the ST and PC Engine CD version too and the Amiga rules . Mantalow will be glad to hear.
TheTosec version wasn't cracked. I completed Part 1 and obtained the Code
First time I complete a Dinamic game (part of).
I liked this game back then with it's big sprites.
Woot. Already a no vote after 5 minutes. Thanks
Dinamic Software from Spain always made good looking Speccy games but gameplay was always too difficult. Except for this one; Came as a nice surprise. The disk +3 version adds nice sounds too.
No hi-score table. Completed once you get through that door.
Excellent game also for point farmers which I didn't. Just wanted to complete this. So go ahead if you want. ;)
Part 2 is totally different than part 1. And also start from scratch. No continues.
Another fine French product. Pity there is no hi-score table. You die and immediately it goes black. So video comes in handy. Cheers to the no-voters !
And it's not only on MAME. On every submission. Already dropped 0.2% legit rate on the last couple of days.
Indeed. Guess my latest comments weren't well accepted. Some games even 3 no votes. Never had that. But ok, if that makes the kiddos happy....it's not the end of the world.
Indeed.Our fries are much better. Ha
A Belgium Yes vote too.
Can't see the real arcade cabinet. Or is this played on a Jamme/MAME cabinet? Skipping for now. cheers.
It is around 5'45". You shoot to the right and then your score goes up until you're time is over;
I even found this "how to do trick/bugo" on the net:
From TwinGalaxies. Which should be our reference:
"Brink Time: NormalSpecial Rules: You are not allowed to use the 3rd level [or other levels] point cheat in this game. Any use will result in your score being immediately disqualified. [This involves sitting in a particular spot and the points skyrocket]"
So this score should be withdrawn immediately HAL. Which is very logical. Let's play fair.
I already voted yes as I know you already told from an older post that the interface looks like a GB in the 3DS. But i recommend taking & 2nd snapshot of the complete 3DS. To be saver. Maybe that was the reason of the no vote(s).
Nice score and an even nicer drawing Good for you saving that from your childhood.
I just looked at it (n° 1 score) and hey... That guy rings a bell
No you don't ;)
At 7'43. With the first big plane. Also 90%. Same for S. Baz here at 5'15.
Super. I was surprised of my PC Engine score on real hardware and that it still stands there. I remember having a painful tumb and having cramps after playing that. That PC Engine control deck isn't as comfy as my arcade stick when playing on emu.
Great improvement! I wonder how we get 100% in stage 2 though. I also always have 90% although i shoot every plane at the end stage. We're missing here something? Differs 40k which is a lot in the end
IGBY2016 submission. Pity, no conversions were made for other consoles.
Welome here. I already was subscribed to your Youtube channel. I watch now and then to your unpacking videos of new stuff. You must have tons of stuff there
Good score. I never got that far.
Hey HAL. Kernzy is correct. You played a clone/bootleg version. Score should be played on the parent rom (RPATROL). Best to remove this score. Skipping now.
Ha. Yeah. That shooting is tricky with this game. Never really liked it in the arcade.
I also show the DIP switch settings, maybe that can also raise your legit rating. Certainly for 1st place scores.
I'll vote yes.
No Hi score table. It is not Block Hole but Quarth (which is the Jap Block Hole) . Typo in the Youtube upload ;)
Excellent score. My PB is 64k so it will be too tough for now :)
Didn't like it at first but after a while i got addicted to it. Although I can't seem to fire as quickly as Nick. He made a WR on this tournament. Well done!
Good score. Been playing it now but do you know how you shoot as fast as Nick? Even on keyboard i can't shoot fast enough.
This is the C16 version and Commodore User gave this one 4 out of 5. Yikes. Play the Plus4 version instead.
This came as a nice surprise after playing the official Commando on the Plus4.
Underground 80s here all the way. If you like new wave/synthpop..
haHa. You did it ;)
Correct. Flash cards used on real hardware are considered non-emulation. Like all Everdrive stuff. That's why i bought so much real hardware recently. GBA Everdrive btw is available at Krikkz (pre-order)!
Yep. Retron are considered as emulation. Excellent score btw.
Excellent score. The best conversion of the bunch. Maybe I should have a try on the emu.
So many games to play and to discover. TOOOO many
So from there your name comes from
Excellent score again. Sometimes I wish i had some more natural game talent like yours and some others here. Guess my hand/brain coordination never worked that good :)
Yeah. I bought last year a scart cable specificly for that. Good investment. Hope to play back real hardware end of August. Emulation is good but never gives me that real retro feeling. Keep the scores coming.
Indeed. It's still a low score. But just had one go.
Yeah. There are TWO fighter games this year
Yeah. The Amstrad version was a pretty conversion.
Thanks for the confirmation.
The Kai version only came out in Japan. You do have 1943: The Battle of Midway (a.k.a. 1943: Midway Kaisen). That came out for Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Arcade, Atari ST, Commodore 64, NES, Xbox 360, ZX Spectrum.
I didn't play that version yet so I can't say it is just a renamed "1943 Kai" version made for the non-Jap market.
Getting better but still way of the 3 million. The emu gave me some graphical glitches.
haha. Oui. I just had a last go. Pity you're not in as there are some platform games too and we know you're really good in them ;)
Just had a re-try and what a dumb end it was
First IGBY 2016 submit. Indeed, much easier now Just need practising getting it;
Nice version, but ruined by the control of your pod. It stops sometimes making it awkard to control.
Yeah. I had this as a copy back then and always found it arcade quality stuff.
Converted in 2008 to MSX by Muffie.
Yeah. I already found out with Bionic Commando and Commando that 16b conversions are not showing off what those machines are capable of.
Now i see where your name comes from
Seems they have updated the interface. Yes vote of course.
Indeed. The Speccy has the best gameplay. I liked the SG1000 too. I am trying now the BBC Micro but can't get the joystick working nor the keys. Using BeebEM, which worked with Commando. So there must be some key pressing to do. Will have to search the manual I guess.
Terrible version. Just played it twice. low score
Konami arcade quality.
I found this too tough to be enjoyable. Certainly vs. the Speccy version. The teacher is really chasing you and throws his teeth almost immediately. Controls are not always reacting good to push them of the bench, ...
Thought I saw this game before...oh yeah... that terrible one on IGBY 2015
Is this played on MAME emu or a real arcade cabinet / Jamma Board? Otherwise it should go to that category. gr
At least we know what vinyl is. My son doesn't
ok thanks Dugger. I found some on Amazon or Funstock UK. cheers
Those Coleco games reminds me a lot of MSX1 games. Pity such a device costs so much. I always bid but some go up to +200€. Is the Coleco Flashback still available?
I'll add some percentage to your score ;)
Well that's a huge improvement. I never really liked Mario games though.
J'espère que tu manges chaque jour tes fruits frais
Hmm. I just viewed that Bubble Bobble NES score. Only a couple of months old those comments. The actual submission was before I joined here.
I thought Matthew was more trustworthy as he is I believe a legit TG player. That Bubble Bobble score should be removed. Players at TG get banned for this....
I could to do the same for 1942 and bam have 10 million completing the last stage.
That's a pity as I believe Matthew is a great player.
I am not playing the moral knight here. And everybody is free to play as he wants...but shouldn't post scores when cheating or using passwords.
Too many secrets to remember while playing.
How do you do that at the beginning ?
Finally, after many attempts... This concludes my Commando bashing (long) weekend. Great addictive game.
At least this compilation set have some nicer bonuses and achievements to reach.
There is one or two accounts online now voting no on everything. Don't worry. He must be 10 years old or so.
3 retro games on one Disc Adding some useless tips and some artwork.
Voted Yes. Don't worry about the no votes. I just checked and every new submissions has received one or two today. Kiddies.
Who's Subway btw?
Seems everyone is getting one or two no votes today. Sigh.
Cool thanks kiddies:
I couldn't tell if the submitter is actually the person who achieved this score: 2
Brutal! The only version i played where you see actual blood
I was awaiting for this. Good score
Well I'll raised the legit rate a bit
Long time you submitted some score btw
o. I didn't look. How much is it? I wasted my last +10 lives as diner was ready. So rushed like a Rambo. I will not play it again for sure ;)
Well, after playing the BBC Micro version this is Joe on speed :)
A PB score.
Yep. I pick a game and try it on every platform i find
Splattered at 5'35"
level select at beginnign of video. No hi-score table. A lot easier than advanced. Completed it which was enough for me now.
Proof of level select at beginning of video. No hi-score table.
Proof of level at beginning of video. No hi-score table.
This is a tough version.
Getting it back fast :)
Well, I certainly can't play till 1 million
lol. I actually never played them when i was young. But I grew up with the Speccy and C64 so those are my favs.
Although it is very recognisable and graphics/sounds are good, it's very repetitive. 36min was enough ;)
Merci beaucoup! Ca sera pour le weekend.
Well, I am not playing this again. Was a very boring game.
