Been a while since you and I went back and forth with this game. Congrats!
You're welcome. Eats your spinach!
First pic shows the game over. Second pic shows me putting in my initials and it clearly shows that it is level 4 (the default difficulty level). Final pic shows my top five scores.
Skipping. You ought to resubmit this, as you shortchanged yourself 20 points.
The version on Nintendo Switch Online is not the same as the NES version, because the rosters are different (different player numbers and player stats). This version is a revision.
YES! YES! YES! Sorry, for a sec, I thought you were that Daniel Bryan wrestler. This game looks cool but very unforgiving.
Game over at 19:50 in the video and then the successful run begins.
Thanks, Mark. Glad to see the Steam issue got resolved. That was a terrible thing to read about! Hope the holidays were good to you.
Game over at 5:22 in the video and then the successful run begins. Been a few months since I submitted any scores here. Hope the holidays were good to you all and that you're having a great new year!
This game belongs in the SNES emulated category; you posted in the NES emulated category.
My version of the Colecovision Flashback does not have that game, either. That game was exclusive to the version sold at Dollar General stores. The one I got was from Toys 'R Us years ago.
Is this played on an actual GameBoy, or is it emulated? It looks like emulation when I look at the image at the top, but I want to be sure before I vote. Skipping for now.
YES vote here.As for it being easier: yes and no. It's somewhat easier in that the spinach respawns after you lose a life (so make sure you use the spinach on each stage!) in the NES version; Bluto's movements are faster and more unpredictable in the NES version than say the Colecovision version. Funny how Popeye is a game in which a certain port is more easy or more difficult varies from time to time and from player to player.
I know this game and how the difficulty feels quite well. It's a yes from me.
This game always freezes on me in the middle of playing.
THANK YOU! Glad to see there's somebody with common sense.
Impossible to get this time on this track without hacks/glitches. All the more reason video should be displayed for games/scores such as this.
This is indeed Skill 4. I don't know if your emulator works the same way as ColEm with the keyboard settings, but I save time by pressing the dash button (next to the 0 at the top of the keyboard) to replay the same difficulty after a game over.
Never mind. I see the pic with all of the weapons is a demo being played after your game over. The demo shows two players, the same level, and all of those weapons. I don't understand why you took a pic of the demo screen when your score is already displayed on the title screen. The demo pic makes it look like you did something fishy.
Would you mind explaining how you have all of those weapons and such a lowly score? You have to grab so many white boxes to get all of those weapons, and you'd have to be way past level 1-1 to get enough white boxes to have all of those weapons. If you had all of those weapons, you'd not only be way past level 1-1, but you'd also have a much higher score than this lowly 37k.I know for a fact that using the continue code after the game over lets you keep all of your weapons and resets your score to zero, which would explain why you have such a low score with all of those weapons; however, I'm confused as to how your high score displayed is 37k on the title screen. Is there a Game Genie code you used that I don't know about which lets you select levels and start with all of those weapons? Is there a level select cheat code I'm not aware of or a cheat code that lets you start the game with all of these weapons or selects levels?
Nice shootin', Tex!
See how much bigger your sign is than the machine? You need to go to a real arcade with a big-ass sign that's bigger than the actual arcade machines!
Successful run begins at 4:25 in the video. As you can see in the video, Game 5 begins on bridge 20.
As you can see in the video, Game 3 begins on bridge 5.
As you can see in the video, Game 7 begins at bridge 50.
What did you think of the game? Personally, I've never been a fan of part 2; I like the original better.
True. You were quite good at that!
It's aboot time somebody from your third-world banana republic topped me in something (Jackal doesn't count). Congrats! You were smart to do this before Steele blows it out of the water.
Successful run begins after the game over at the 5:10 mark in the video. Posted this score for Colecovision High Score Club (Season 11, Round 15) at AtariAge.
YES vote here. I think President Trump would destroy us all in this game with his tiny hands.
Pitiful run this time, nowhere near my Game A score. Wasn't in the mood for another session, so I'm just submitting this one for now. Shouldn't take Steele too long to top this.
Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but when that thing grabs my ball, I press the B button to bang the pinball table a few times until the golden things breaks and lets go of your ball.
Don't know how to do that on OBS. You'll see that the YouTube channel is the same for all of my videos, however.
YES vote here. I got 1,415,380 points on one of my tries tonight (had a million on the first ball). It's hard to keep racking up the points, though. You can do so well and then it all goes to hell so quickly.
He not only beat that troll's score, he DESTROYED IT. He set it on fire and danced the Macarena around it.
I think if you hit reload/refresh after submitting a post, it double-posts.
Looks like you took your screenshot too quickly. I looked at the math and it does match your score; however, your score in the pic does not. I think you took your screenshot before it finished counting the multiplier, because the space to enter your name is not in your pic (but it's in others' submission pics for this game).
.. - ..... - ...... - ...
..... - ....... - ........ - .....
How is this close to 90% on YES votes when the score doesn't even match? 14,144 does not equal 18,623.
Darn that font! I initially thought the final digits read 680 but I see it is indeed 590 and correct.
Agreed. I'll be submitting my 28k after this one passes. Just waiting for those final votes.
You should see his actual toaster NES. It's a blender! Those crafty Canadians...
Where's Lawrence Taylor when you need him to block those 10 PATs?
Nice run! Probably took you a handful of tries to do it. It gets so annoying when the CPU correctly guesses your play 3 or 4 plays in a row. I noticed that you like to kick deep all the time and go for the INT. I know it's easy to intercept passes in this game, but I never knew whether kicking deep or short saves more time. Judging from your video, kicking deep and then intercepting the passes for better field position saves more time for more scoring.
Not very good at this game, but I'm pleased with any progress I make at all. Just the other day, I was happy to get a paltry 2k.
Looks like you're playing on an AtGames Sega Genesis mini; if that is the case, this should be filed under emulation.
Never had the pleasure of playing a 5200 at all; however, I always thought - judging by pics I saw online - that the cartridge labels looked cooler on the 5200 (blue Popeye label, for example).Ultimately, it's how fun the games are which really matters; nevertheless, today's games lack the cool box art and label art that we saw many years ago.
Your video shows you scoring 54,200. Why are you submitting it as 30,200?
Are there differences in your approach/timing and how you play it in A?
Thanks. I have one with 45k that I was going to submit once this one passes. This one's been stuck at 4-5 votes remaining for two weeks now. Finally down to 3 votes remaining. Scores were passing faster than this last month.
Impressive. Felt like you should have beaten the 67th room; it looked good on several of your jumps!
38,225-point run begins at 15:40 in the video. The three root beer bottles in the top left corner indicate three starting lives, which is proof of Skill 4.
The four glasses of root beer in the top left corner at the start of the game indicates four starting lives, which is proof that this is Skill 3.
Not a very good run this time. Damn photographer!
You were the guy with 99.99 at the bottom. Admit it!
Successful run begins at 11:45 in the video.
Hope you're having a great time, Sean!
I also checked the C64 hardware category and all submissions in that category also show a 6-digit maximum in the score display.
For example, look at this pic from GTibel's submission. No zero in front of his number and the entire log of scores in his image shows a six-digit maximum for each score (as evidenced by the 0 being in front of scores lower than 100k).GTibel pic
Are you sure about that? The submissions by GTibel, Kernzy and Dovey also have only six digits...
Some Gameboy games (such as Pokemon Red and Blue) have color if you're using an advanced-enough emulator (such as Visual Boy Advance).
Successful run begins 46 seconds into the video.
KARR (Knight Automated Roving Robot)
My favorite show as a kid, actually. And that narrative wasn't in the original episode (Knight of the Phoenix). :)
In all seriousness, my best thus far has been 6.07 seconds. It's very difficult to get under 6.
I got 5.51 once... then I realized the clock was still counting and I wasn't at the finish yet.
Final score at 1:31:12
8 hall monsters on each stage prove this is Skill 4.
7 hall monsters on each stage prove this is Skill 3.
I haven't been able to do better than 6.07 yet. I'm impressed with the precision that is needed to get under 6 seconds. Nice time!
Successful run begins a few seconds after 4:40 in the video.Game Over and final score at 59:10 in the video.
I just feel like the depth perception is better on this one than the Colecovision port. I got frustrated many times on the Colecovision port's hippo stage thinking I wasn't touching the water on my jumps.
This looks better than the Colecovision port in every way.
Successful run begins after the 2:50 mark in the video. Been a long time since I played this game; it took several minutes for me to remember that double-tapping B makes you jump high and into the cars.
Score rolls over at a million. Rollover happens at 13:50 in the video. There are six hall monsters on each screen, proving this is Skill 2.
A video? Where is Ivan, and what have you done to him?
You do NOT get the world trophy in the event of a tie (I know because I had a tie in an Atari 2600 game and it only gave me the National, State, and City trophies).
This is what happens when you don't film all the time. Told you that you should've had the 5.31 on film!
YES vote here. One of my favorites!
Final score is about 20 seconds after the 2 hours and 3 minutes mark (2:03:20). Decided I was done playing at that point.
Scored 63 points against Dallas. Successful run begins at 1:10 in the video.
Successful run begins at 1:10 in the video. Played as New York and defeated Dallas 63-0 for a point differential of 63.
It does matter. You can remove the score and then submit it to the proper category. Keep in mind when posting in the hardware category that you will need to show the hardware in your pictures/videos.
When adding evidence, the YouTube links you posted here do not work in the ADD EVIDENCE feature. You have to post a different YouTube URL. You have to post the URL that has WATCHV= in it.
Furthermore, a four-second video showing the score and not the gameplay is weak evidence.
You've been brainwashed!
Didn't I tell you to never play this version? In the words of The Critic: IT STINKS!
I know the pain of that process all too well.
Why? Do you sleep in a boat? YOU'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT!
After you beat the game, you have to let the music play for a long time before being able to press the start button to return to the title screen and see your high score when you start a new game. High score is shown at 13:43 in the video.
When playing on the Wii: WiiColem
When playing on the computer: ColEm 4.0
It would totally suck if the numbers were messed up instead of the letters. It's the emulator you're using; I remember other users having odd graphical displays in several games on that emulator and yet the games load graphically correct in other emulators.
YES vote. Nice GIMI OVIR screen.
This should be in emulated.
I know it is. I said I'm not voting until I watch it first. I'll check it out later.
Skipping until I watch the video. Surely, you can understand.
Tell Jupiter I said hello after you make it your biotch.
I can do it, but you probably do it much more easily than I do. GO FOR IT!
My favorite play was the Fake Field Goal pass (especially on first down). Scored many touchdowns with that!
Jokes aside, that actually happened in some old football games. I remember Joe Montana Sports Talk Football showing you the CPU team's chosen play if you played on the easiest difficulty.
You should play the Belichick edition where it shows you the CPU team's chosen play.
Going to give this one a try myself for the first time soon. I'm good at Contra and Super C on the NES, but did terribly on the SNES game. Guessing this Gameboy one is probably similar to the SNES one.
I used to get to the Sun at the end of the game. Jupiter is the one that screws it up all the time. If you lose too many lives on Jupiter, then you have a very small margin for error. When I beat Jupiter with plenty of lives, I easily smash that score. Jupiter gave me trouble this time.
Thanks, Omar. Sadly won't get the World Trophy for this one (Ichigo's cheated score is still higher); however, I'll be glad to take the user points from this one until I submit a higher score.
Final score at 31:25 in video.
I can't believe I didn't get all 10 coins on the dark bonus stages; I came so close several times.
If there were one more quarter, Falcons would have blown that lead, too.
Cheaters never prosper.
Gladly voting YES for this one. Kudos!
Recording via OBS. Had over 318k the other day in AtariAge's Colecovision High Score Club. In this game, you either don't lose lives at all, or lose them in bunches. When it rains, it pours.
This one's so annoying to film. The game keeps freezing at random times. I had a session today where it froze at a little over 100,000 points and another session where it froze at 35,000 points. So annoying.Great score!
My first time playing Pinball for the NES. The only prior exposure I had to this game was doing tasks on NES Remix for the Wii U.Playing this game with a keyboard felt very weird and confusing. Having to hit the D key for my right flipper and the left arrow - which is on the right side of my keyboard - for my left flipper made it feel awkward.
Did it feel easier than the Colecovision port? More difficult? No difference?
Bigger ball hog than Kobe Bryant!
Steele is right. When you're not emulating, you should include photos of the actual system and game so we know it's indeed played on hardware; nevertheless, I did notice the Wii sensor bar below your TV in the picture.
lol. At least I'll get to wear it on my head for a few days before passing it back to Steele again.
Come on. I just finally got the crown back for this one today.
One of my favorites, although I prefer Mappy.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw point-farming from the 44-minute mark to the 54-minute mark. So TEN MINUTES of point-farming without moving an inch and chatting away on Twitch and checking phones for texts. In what way is any of this okay? The fact that this submission's at 87% YES votes is a joke.
Actually, there's video of the point farming.https://www.twitch.tv/videos/222677160
In addition to needing video evidence for a rollover, this submission should also at least show the Flashback itself.
77-0 victory for a difference of 77 points.
Jerry Rice with 746 yards receiving.
Joe Montana with 821 yards passing.
Played as the Pittsburgh Steelers and allowed only 9 totaly yards by the Indianapolis Colts (1 rushing + 8 passing).
Holy crap, that was quick. I was the first vote and it was 100% after my vote. Didn't take long for hte troll to strike.
First vote. Knew it had to be you when I saw Excitebike on the list.
Do you remember it being an odd-looking shape of a cart that was blue?
Had a little over 82,000 points playing in the Colecovision High Score Club at AtariAge; however, I was only able to get 58,310 points today. Sometimes luck isn't on your side in trying to finish the levels quicker for bigger bonuses.
Thank you for submitting this score! For the last nearly 20-plus years, I had trouble remembering the name of this game. I only played it once at a cousin's house when she rented this game from Blockbuster Video and neither of us ever remembered the name of the game.
A great public service!
Not even close to my personal best, but it's better than my previous submission and has video.
Voted YES. I like how the French word for Quit is spelled QUITTER, which is what we English-speaking people call whiners who quit. lol
THERE IS NO IVAN! ONLY ZUUL!
To get the bird to fly out of the Pet Shop, you need to toss a cherry bomb at it while you're standing in the window. The bird will then be on the shoulder of the statue of Jebediah Springfield, and it will fly away from the statue when you hit it with a rocket.If it will help at all, check out the video from when I played the NES version of the game.
Removed, yet still listed as #1. Another disgraceful score.
Would this be your favorite and/or most-played game?
Thanks. I actually had 167,000 yesterday, but didn't submit it because the video turned out horrible. I'm getting more comfortable with the video program now.
Decided to stop playing at 799,000 points. The score rolls over when you hit a million.
Oh God. I absolutely HATED this game on the NES.
Should've had much more, but the keyboard's d-pad got stuck on one of the bonus stages and caused me to pretty much immediately fall into a hole.
I have this game on the PS2. I should hook it up sometime and play it again. Nice Donkey Kong and Zaxxon carts for the Colecovision!
Agreed with everything SeaBass said. For the most part, High Score and its members are in good spirits and get along well and have good humor; their attitude towards Ichigo has obviously soured in light of his recent - and past - admissions. Can't say I blame them at all!The fact of the matter is that Ichigo in his history on this site has gained perhaps far more illegitimate YES votes than he ever did illegitimate NO votes.
Thank God for OBS in the absence of a working webcam!
I see that your Lamborghini beats my Schwinn. Congrats!
This version isn't a bad game, but it's not my favorite for BurgerTime. Practice is key; I was getting stuck on the ladders trying to manuever sideways after climbing up or down. On the later levels, they move so much faster and it becomes diffcult to outmanuever them. It takes a while to get the timing right with your moves.
Voted YES (first vote, too). I hope my instructions on how to upload pics to AtariAge were helpful. Welcome aboard there, by the way!
Vat ze fook? Nees improovmint. Bork bork bork!
Hey, no fair! Dan Marino would need about 9 or 10 quarters - or for time to stand still - to do this!
I noticed that last year myself when I was browsing the Highest Scores page for NES and other categories. When I sent Ichigo a message about it, he said the same thing to me that he said to you here: it's in the past.Terse and unapologetic replies are just about all you can expect from him, so I was not surprised to see him still use that line again.
This is the kind of game he'd have under today's NFL and their candyass rules (not with today's Dolphins, though... they suck).
Let's see if it appears this time...
My chances of reclaiming the crown for 7800...Reply
I think the score rolls over at 100k, but I'm not entirely sure.
Got bored and decided to stop playing at this point.
As I already told you earlier, you can't use the same pic for both emulated and hardware.
I may have been too quick to give you a YES vote, but I just noticed you submitted this under NES/Famicom category. When you submit to the hardware category, you must show the hardware in the pictures. Also, I noticed you used this SAME PICTURE AND SAME SCORE for both the hardware and the emulated category. That's a no-no. You must submit this to one or the other (if you used an emulator, then it should be in the emulated category).
Excellent! Welcome to High Score. You got my vote, but a friendly reminder: have a piece of paper with your user name in it in the future; it eases any concerns the voters may have as to the identity of the player.This is still one of my favorite games after all these years, and it's nice to see another who is good at this game!
Your score is supposed to be 51, not 21. This chart goes by the number of strokes. Resubmit it and you'll get my vote. Excellent score!
Methinks it's the eye patch. It looks evil. Kidding aside, that's just our neighborhood troll going around voting that reason on EVERYBODY (well, almost everybody).
Fvootid yez, bork bork bork!
Hey Omar! Same score as yours, man!
Nice score! Was at 66% when I viewed it and it bumped up to 71% after I voted for you.
Your quest for 300... you're Homer bowling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWDLCTBwyn8
Tonight was the first time I've tried bowling for the 2600. Took me five games to achieve this score and finally hit 200 or more!155191176172213
I know there was another one that also had a Mt. Dew logo in the background (MSX, maybe?).
Thanks, Oyama! Once I edged your score out, I took a pic and submitted this score; however, I solved a few more puzzles before deciding to kill off all of my remaining lives on purpose just to see if there is an initials screen. Sure enough, there is! I ended it with 1,042,645 pts.I was unaware that Siders had passed away. When I was done playing, I watched the credits and saw that it said he programmed this game in 2007. He did a hell of a job with this game, as I think this and the Colecovision ports are the best versions of Q*Bert.
Nice shooting, Tex! Now there's a vaquero if ever I've seen one!
Besides, if I can survive voting for all of Bartjaah's Pac-Man PC scores a while back, I can survive however many you have.
Go ahead and post them all. It's not like the Wii U category has a score up often, let alone many scores.
A fun game! The Q*Bert speed and controls are perfect and smooth.
By the way, I definitely recommend b*nQ as it's a fun game to play. The Q*Bert speed and control feels smooth like the Colecovision's, not like the clunkiness of the NES version.
Could have easily topped a million points, but I got tired of playing and decided to take a pic while I still had all these extra lives. Level 9 just loops over and over again after you finish 9-4. I'll go for the million some other time.
Nice job. This is more difficult than the home console ports.
The time in the picture does not match the time you submitted. You've done that with a handful of your scores this week.
One of my all-time favorites. Loved it on the 2600 and the Colecovision, and I noticed that many of the games look awesome on the 5200 as well.
I see I'm not the only one who likes to pick on the Colts defense.
Some friendly advice if you want to maximize your yardage with Emmit Smith: pull your WRs out of the game. WRs suck at blocking. Every WR in the game has a 13 rating for hit power, so they're cast aside like rag dolls in grappling matches. Here are your players' HP ratings if you're the Cowboys.
WR HP ratings:Michael Irvin - 13Alvin Harper - 13Jimmy Smith - 13Tyrone Williams - 13
RB HP ratingsEmmith Smith - 50Daryl Johnston - 56Tommie Agee - 38Derrick Gainer - 44
TE HP ratingsJay Novacek - 38Alfredo Roberts - 44You want to get your best blockers on the field. If you like to do running plays where you run towards your TE, then I recommend putting Johnston at TE and putting either Gainer or Roberts at the WR side that you like to run to.
Dan Marino: 303 yards on 46 carries (scored all 5 touchdowns). Getting the big yardage with him is more difficult in the Genesis version here than in the NES version; the NES version had amazing blockers at the RB and TE positions for Miami; they're so-so in this one.
Going to upload my Marino preseason rushing yardage in a few minutes. It was more difficult than I thought it would be. Miami's RB/TE blockers are so-so in this version (they were Godly in the NES version at blocking).
Dan Marino is not impressed...
Just bumped it up to a 91.7 for you.
Thanks. Going to vote now.
Insane. I tried this for the first time tonight and had just a hair over 500.
Skipping at the moment. Please show the hardware and the cartridge in another pic (click on add evidence). If it's already in the picture, I'm having difficulty seeing it even after opening the image in another tab.
Nice improvement! Hope you set your old score as a goal for the extra 100 points.
First vote (YES). I still have my PS2 but never had the games that had the Namco and Taito and other classic collections. I'm going to have to start making a note of what classic compilations exist for the PS2 and then seeing if I can find them.
If I ever visit the Pittsburgh area, I'll be sure to check the place out. I'm not much of a Pinball player, but I know the place has some arcade machines like Popeye and Q*Bert because of your other pics.
Hope you're having a blast. Happy New Year!
I always loved making the ref chase me all over the field. "You can't card me if you can't catch me!"
First vote (YES), by the way. The trolls are up late tonight, however.
Believe it or not, this is the first time I've played Xevious.
The 2nd picture displayed here was taken at the start of the gameplay. Playing on advanced difficulty gives you a level 2 start (as evidenced by the fact that I'm starting level 2 with 0 points).
Mama always said, "If you can't crack Donkey Kong 7800, then crack the rest!"
You did try to sell me a bridge once. Were you living under it?
Yep. All of my recent scores were at 100% with 1-2 votes remaining; however, they've been hit today. Funny that they get hit after I point out what a habitual cheater a certain cheater is and his history of cheating.
He cheated many times and in many games; you are actually right to NOT give him the benefit of the doubt.
I believe everybody has one arcade machine they wished they owned; for me, it's this one.
To the voters: I understand that you are not fans of Ichigo's past actions; however, I'd still recommend voting YES on scores such as this for the simple fact that they're low enough to restore the #1 ranking back to the others who righfully deserve it. Such corrections are needed.
The Namco Museum/Remix games attempt to emulate the arcade version, as evidenced by their much greater difficulty than other console versions. For instance, I played Dig Dug on Namco Museum Remix for the Wii, and the best I've had was a hair under 60k thus far. It's very unforgiving and my scores on that version are paltry when compared to my scores on other versions.
Why is E.T. chasing the Michelin Man and a cabbage patch girl?
They'll be in the 9th circle with the idiot that invented the wireless controller.
Was thinking about getting this after reading that DS games should work just fine on my 3DSXL. It'll be nice being able to play Mappy and such on the go.
Voting YES. Even when I saw the full-size image in a new tab, your ID wasn't the most visible (but good enough to see it).
Just like the Million Dollar Man (Ted DiBiase) used to always do. Except he did it when he was getting his ass kicked.
Congrats, Jin. Nice Pac-Man mug!
Check this out.https://duggervideogames.wordpress.com/2017/12/09/contra-nes-point-values/
Ugh. Pic doesn't show up. Just the word "Reply"
Hey Omar. Testing. Going to see if the pics show up in these replies. I found out the point values of everything on stage 1 and made pics for you guys.Reply
It is indeed fun. Colecovion is still my favorite for Q*Bert and BurgerTime; however, I like the GameBoy ports more than the NES ports of those two games.
Good game, but the hit detection is bullshit. Sometimes you eat the power pellet and the ghosts go THROUGH you unharmed; moments later, they revert back to their original state and you're trapped (lost two lives that way).
They really made the number 4 look weird in this game.
Was one spot away from finishing level six. Almost had it!
Question: does the entire puzzle fit on your screen when you're playing on the actual Gameboy? On the emulator, not the whole thing is on the screen at the same time (but it's not much of a hindrance, really).
Don't forget to go to Options to choose which control orientation you want for your d-pad. Hope you're having fun with the game!
Had a little over 1.60 million myself before losing my first life last night, but I won't be submitting such a score until I get back to making videos (1-life runs pretty much demand that kind of evidence).On my first run last night, I lost a life on the first session of stage 5 (Snowfield)... pissed me off! Had the 1.60 million on my next run after resetting.
Probably just a troll. Heck, I wouldn't be shocked if it were AlanTorres.
I love the GameBoy port; way better than the NES version. I also enjoy the amusing cut scenes in this game. Q*Bert seems like a pissed-off Wile E. Coyote.
I don't have the MSX emulator becuase my antivirus wouldn't allow it to download; they said it was unsafe.
The deaths in this game are bullshit. It would be so much better if everything fit on the screen.
A few more fruits and I would've had over 200k. Lost 3 lives very quickly. Ugh.
I'm amazed you and Omar have the patience to play this game. I got tired of it in NES Remix and was done with it once I completed the tasks for it.Golf was a wonderful black box game, however!
Already in the database, actually. Bubu has an entry in the hardware category and OriginalGamer has one in the emulated category.
The colors/graphics remind me of Pro Wrestling for the NES.
Mappy is one of my all-time favorite video games; unfortunately, it is TERRIBLE on the GameBoy! You can't see shit. Cats off-screen suddenly appear on screen as you're heading towards them and you don't see them coming. Know how I lost my last life in this port? I crashed to the ground below when I broke the trampoline (I thought there was a second trampoline below, but there wasn't and I had no way of knowing as I could not see below).I love Mappy on the NES/Famicom and the arcade; however, it's shit on the GameBoy. Such a shame.
Lost my last life on Area 4.2 after I was trapped and out of peppers. Fun game, but more difficult than I thought it would be. I was surprised by how quickly the enemies recover and are able to kill you after you drop them. Once you drop them, you better quickly stay away from where they're going to land.
Almost beat round 34, but I got a game over when I chased the final dragon on that level and got caught in the fire.
Even if we had the wall built already, Santa should get over it just fine with his flying reindeer.
I'm not as good as Kernzy at this game, but I felt I could have done much better than this. Got a little sloppy and impatient at times trying to be too perfect and fancy.
Nice! This is one of the games I'm going to try tonight. As a kid, I had the orange Game & Watch Donkey Kong, but I didn't really get another handheld again until the Gameboy Color (and I did not play many games on that, either).Going to try more GameBoy games tonight; I'm beginning to have a greater appreciation for how good the games were on it.
You won't regret the purchase! It's a very fun game.
The GameBoy port of Q*Bert is way better than the NES port, in my opinion. I highly recommend it! Next time I play, I'll have to fiddle around with the buttons to see if there's a way to make everthing appear on the screen. I had too many deaths due to off-screen obstacles that I ended up quickly jumping into.
No leeching and Dumple beat the game with great speed here. Dumple, I bet you were kicking yourself on a few of those deaths; you were going through the game quickly and making it look easy but had a few deaths that looked very avoidable. Good run!
I still have the VHS. I always tell people it's a much better movie than it's given credit for (people are too quick to crap on it); however, it's also not a timeless masterpiece, either. It's fine if people enjoy it for what it really is: a movie you can enjoy that isn't a must-see.
I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. Actually, screw that. You're buying!
Played Rad Racer II alot as a kid, but not the original Rad Racer. Practiced it a lot a few days ago; I'm surprised at how much braking is necessary in the first game.
You actually had 4,530 points, not 4,350.
JES takes the crown. DILLY DILLY!
Just finished a 1-life run moments ago. Beat the game and finished with 732,800 points. I didn't slow down to mess with the turtles at all (mostly shot them with fireflowers) and I just tried to beat most of the levels as quickly as I could while getting as many coins as I could. Sadly, there were too many levels where I failed to get the fireworks with the flagpole; mistiming those jumps costs you so many points, especially when you know you screwed up and you're forced to hit the lower parts just to get the correct timing.
Impressive! Do you sometimes find you second-guessing yourself and wondering if slowing things down was a waste of time and not worth it?
I immediately thought of Space Panic when I saw the graphics, but this game plays differently from it.
I still say the "vacuum cleaners" that the cats ride in those light-night infomercials are really Jaguars with engines/motors in them.
Sounds like the title that would be given to Vinnie's beluga.
Loved rushing for 4,000 yards in a season with Marino in this game. It's a shame that rushing for 300 yards in a game with him doesn't leave enough time to score 63 points. Damn clocks and their speed!
Are you sure you set auto-fire to ON? I never saw it toggle to ON at all; I saw it say OFF on your settings screen.
We need to do these over again and possibly either delete the category or have the category edited by the admin. You see, the times we have on each "lap" in this game are not indeed a lap time, but the TOTAL time of the race up to that point. For example, it didn't really take you 1 minute and 38 seconds to go from the finish of lap 1 to the finish of lap 2; it took you 1 minute and 38 seconds from the start of the race to reach the finish of lap 2; therefore, it's quite posible that lap 1 is not always technically your fastest lap.I'd like to see this category edited to say "fastest finish" or "fastest 1st lap" and then players such as you and I can resubmit scores then.
Please tell me this is better than the NES game. The NES game was most heinous!
Those dictionaries can't always be trusted. I once looked up souffle and it said the French word for souffle is souffle!Note: I know souffle is a French word; I was just pretending to be as obtuse as you probably think most Americans are.
I managed to get the best ending sometimes, but it's such a pain in the ass. You need a lot of luck on your side, and the mini-game where you're running with Larry and the radio while Curly is boxing is torture sometimes.
Nice score! Not far off from your old one.
Going to give you a YES vote here. I had to right-click on the image and open the image in a new tab to be able to see the score on your TV screen. I advise that you show video of your gameplay in the future on scores that smash #1 scores, however.The fact that I see your 7800 hooked up to an old-fashioned TV and no other devices near it rules out the possibility of save states and emulators, so you have my vote. If possible, upload video for #1 scores in the future to make it easier for us all to vote yes.
This was a more fun game than I anticipated it would be. Due to online comments I've seen others make over the years, I was under the impression this game would be horrible. It's actually not bad. No idea what GDV is, though.
You know what's weird? Even though these pictures are sideways, when I righ-click on them and choose "open image in new tab", it show the images in the correct orientation in the other tab (I didn't even have to rotate them).
"You ain't fast enough for me." - Mr. Bolt -
Here's my impression of Alan...
Get whatever help you need to pull yourself out of such a dark place. Glad you're doing better!
As for Alan's time, I don't have the patience to sit there for 55 minutes and then cross the finish line.
Yeah, I learned the proper way to get more distance in the air and the proper way to land when I watched your video. For the most part, I can do it; however, the timing has to be so precise and you have to be perfect for the entire race. I haven't quite mastered it like you have; I seem to have some landings that just slow me down a tad and that's all it takes to miss your time. Your runs are most impressive.
Never had one of these. Are all your games on a floppy? Would this and the games be difficult to find nowadays?
I had 59.12 on my first run on track 1 (I crashed once). When I tried track 1 again, I got 56.38 the next time (no crashes). Your times on these tracks are impressive, Omar! I haven't been able to sniff them. Been practicing all week and this is the best I can do on track 1.
Also, his #1 score for Bubble Bobble in the hardware category should have been removed, as well. Player 2 has 9,000 points. He claims he had player 2 activated so he can get the good ending; that is completely unnecessary because good ending or bad ending, you still get a million points either way for popping the final boss's bubble! He also activated player 2 before finishing off the final boss, as evidenced by the fact that player 2 has 9,000 points.Furthermore, he admitted his hardware score wasn't played on an actual NES (check S.BAZ's score and read the comments there). He played on the Wii with an emulator (probably even used save states, too). He can easily remove his own hardware score by submitting a new one; however, he never bothered to do so. We know he has an NES to play hardware on, because his video for Balloon Fight - which was only about 20 seconds long or so - showed an NES powered on. It's possible he cheated with his Wii/emulator in Balloon Fight as well, as his Balloon Fight video never shows the game being played. It's possible he had the Wii - which was off-camera in that video - powered on at the same time and loading a save state to show that high score on the TV (while the NES was probably powered on a different input and not being shown on the TV screen).Bottom line: he's not trustworthy at all. When I called him out in the past, he was unapologetic and flippant about the fact that he was caught. I even told him long ago he could remove the Bubble Bobble hardware score by submitting a new one (which he CAN do as he has an NES). After all this time, he still hasn't done so. Kudos to you for doing the right thing in voting NO on his scores.
Don't forget this, either.
Thanks, Steele. You should see the videos I put up on Skill 3. Took hours to get that score. I've even had sessions where I had close to 3 million points - sometimes over it - and made the game crash.Follow the link below and you'll see my Skill 3 score with videos included.
I had over 70k at a game over on level 16; I'm impressed that you had over 95k at the start of level 14!
Those, and dropping between the retracting lava walls that close in on you (the timing of a fast descent has to be so precise!).
I recently got over 70k (failed at level 16) on this and another guy at AtariAge got 130k (he failed at level 19). This game seems to be much harder once you reach levels 13 and 14.
Alan's Tiny Toon submission for the Megadrive Emulated has been removed, I see. It was there hours ago with no pictures and no video whatsoever. Keep calling everybody stupid, Alan; you're only making a bigger ass of yourself than everybody already knows you are.
Alan should be banned, frankly. Between his pathetic attitude and the anger he directs at other players, the scores with weak evidence (and gloating while he's at it), and scores with NO evidence (such as his Tiny Toons score with no video and no pictures)... there's no reason for him to be here. Pathetic.
There's quite a handful of scores I've asked the same question about.
Dishonor on your house! Dishonor on your cow!
Impressive time! I tried to see if I could come close to this time a moment ago. I did not crash at all, and my best for this track was 1 minute and 6.57 seconds.
Funny. I didn't even notice the guitar until you mentioned it!
So this even-better time is why you removed the other one.
I finally shaved the time down to 56.56 seconds; the margin for error in getting your time is incredibly small. Quite impressive!
An impressive time. The best I've been able to do on track 1 thus far is 56.94 seconds.
The only one showing a bad attitude lately in the comments is you, Alan. Omar's a hell of a lot more trustworthy than you are. Despite already having a reputation as a trusted and good player here, he still posts good evidence. Alan, your weak evidence and bad attitude are not going to fly until you've first established that you indeed can play (and that trust gets established first with good evidence).
Hey! That's my nickname!
I can vouch for Ed that this is indeed Skill 4. It is obvious not only by the speed and difficulty of the game in the video, but also the fact that there are 8 hall monsters outside the rooms.
Skill 1: 5 monstersSkill 2: 6 monstersSkill 3: 7 monstersSkill 4: 8 monsters
*Laughs like Bender*
Actually, you'll still be in the top 10; the only score getting knocked off is my old score that was already in the top 10. That one will be erased when this one passes.
Dishonor on your house! Dishonor on your cow!
Just bumped you from 83.3 to 84.6%Still have a lot of voting to do as I haven't voted much in the past week or two; however, I'll catch up later. Back to bed.
*Dillon broke your record*DILLON! YOU SON OF A BITCH!
Wrong game. This is Mappy-Land, not Mappy.
First vote! Vote here! With a vote-vote here, a vote-vote there, here a vote, there a vote, everywhere a vote-vote!
Or some other category. If you show us a picture of what you played on (Pac-Man plugin or Jakks-Pacific plugin or a MAME emulator on a computer or something...) then we can help you identify which category your score should be submitted under.
Nice score! It looks like you did not play this on the actual arcade machine, though; therefore, it should be submitted in the Arcade/M.A.M.E. Emulated category.
Just bumped it up to 60% for you right now.
Don't know what time you posted this, but I see it is the latest score in the Latest Scores list and it's at 50% before I even vote for it, so the troll is obviously up late tonight.
I already did. These points are in American, not Canadian.
And many of them are the same person.
Bumped it from 0 to 50% for you.
I proved who some of them were a long time ago (from Norway). I even proved what a liar one of them was when he said that he and his three "friends" voted YES on a score for GTibel back in the day (a mathematical impossibility, as I was the only YES vote GTibel had at the time and GTibel didn't even have four TOTAL votes at the time).No idea if that moron is the one doing it right now on our scores with the "don't trust user" reason, but I already proved he did it in the past and proved what a LIAR he is. He still continues to lie to this day.
The NES port of Rampage is the only one I've ever played, so I've never had the chance to play as that other creature (a wolf?).
I agree, although we already know who some of them are.
I see the first vote is a NO; gave it a YES to bump it up to 50% for you.
Always loved this game on the Colecovision. This is the first time I ever played the arcade version of Carnival. Felt like I could have done better, but wasted too many shots.
Tried the arcade version for the first time ever. It's brutally hard for me (for the wrong reasons). I can't aim diagonally or sideways or downward; I can only aim straight up! Took me a few minues to ind out that 5 inserts the coin and that CTRL and ALT are the two fire keys (doesn't work on the Wii's MAME emulator, so I tried it on the computer).
Voted YES. Never was a fan of this game as I feel it's too unforgiving. I fired it up a few minutes ago and managed to beat level 1 with over 20,000 points, but it was a pain in the ass to do. I think it's B.S. that you can get killed as soon as you come out of the revolving doors where you rescue the hostages and aren't even given an opportunity to move or shoot (but a bad guy walks into you and you're dead).
Never played Ikari Warriors before. I'll have to give that one a try sometime.
One of my favorite games ever, and definitely my favorite SNK game. Ran into the damn helicopter at this part and was caught in no man's land.
You're the best around. Nothing's ever gonna bring you down! Except that gigantic wave from the Tsunami.
I do the same thing you did on the bonus stages; I duck under the high ones and just break the rest. It IS possible to break the high ones by kicking, but whether or not your guy does the high kick seems very random and unpredictable.
Didn't take you long.
Never knew this game existed. I think the graphics look nice. My brain is running around in circles about the graphics/action, though. I keep thinking, "How can something look so cool yet so stupid and yet so cool at the same time?"
Way harder than the Atari 2600 and Colecovision ports, in my opinion.
Just noticed you're only 3,070 points behind SeaBass in this game! Depending on how the scoring is done in this game, that could be just a few rock kills away or a fruit or several fruits away from passing him. Nice attempt!
You're on quite the MSX kick lately.
Thanks. I know a guy who reaced level 50 on the MSX version of the game; I'm curious to see if he can do just as well on the Colecovision version (wouldn't be surprised).
I don't always have the 3DS out to take pictures when I'm playing, but my top score was 71,236 points (red area with trees and water on the sides of the screen) one night. Best run I ever had, but I usually struggle with stage 2. Finished stage 1 moments ago with 12,674 points.Stage 3 is my favorite; I just wish I would reach it more often.
Game Over screen appears awfully fast, so I had to start a game again and take a picture of the HI SCORE 22465.Not an impressive score at all; in fact, I've done much better on some days but scores like this are the norm for me in this game. I'm not very good at this game and stage 2 is surprisingly the hardest level for me in this game (3 and 4 are much easier for me the few times I'm lucky enough to get past stage 2).
Recently achieved this score for Season 10, Round 11 of the Colecovision High Score Club at AtariAge. Had my butt handed to me by Tao on stage 12.
This should be in the Emulated category.
Skipping for now. You posted a score here instead of a win streak.
I'll be impressed when you master the Kessel Run.
Had no problems dodging bullets during the game; lost all of my lives by running out of room to navigate on this level. Fun game!
Lost all of my lives in the pictured level. Once you lose a life and lose the power-ups, you're pretty much screwed. After losing my final life, it quickly went to the black Game Over screen; I had to choose continue and pause the game to bring it to this screen so you can say the high score (HI 125300).
Nice score, Omar!
Not sure if this pic will show up or not, but I'll give it a try. I found out that it IS possible to farm points in this game. This user's evidence would be better if it actually showed the GAME OVER screen so we knew what level he was on. There's three screens to each round (first screen is maze; second screen is Bible; third screen is bonus boxes).I had 158k and had a game over on round 7. Tonight, I decided to play the game again and see if it's possible to farm points. When I found out it was possible, here's the score achieved: 208k and still not out of lives yet while only on the second screen of ROUND FOUR!
Well, I was wrong. It IS possible to farm points in this game. You can farm points on the second part of each stage where you collect the Bibles. If you choose not to put the bible in the center box, you can just keep it and keep shooting the enemies and farming the points from them.
The beauty of this game is that it displays what speed setting you're playing on.
YES here. As far as I know, point-farming is as impossible in this game as it is in Pac-Man. Some tips for the future: try to have a pic of the GAME OVER screen so we can see what level your game ended on; show the website URL in the future so if any of us wanted to check it out for ourselves, we can. If possible, provide video (I did not submit video for this game, but most of my submissions have them). Video is not always necessary, but it eases voters' concerns for scores good enough to be #1.I don't like the fact that there's a cheats button on that page, but it looks like it's not highlighted with any colors at all. It's a good and believable score.
I voted YES, but I just noticed that you posted this in the hardware category instead of emulation.
I wouldn't think it's the end of the game, as the score has enough digits for you to get a much higher score. Probably just an issue with the emulator. For example: my Colecovision emulator seems to always have problems with the game Girl's Garden. That game freezes at random times when I play it, but others have had no issues with it on the hardware.
Odd. Maybe it was so close that the game thought it landed at the bottom for a game over, even though you killed it.
Same here. 90% of the time, I prefer the Coleco port of a game (BurgerTime, Q*Bert, etc.), but NES gets my vote on Popeye. I've always preferred Popeye and Donkey Kong Jr. over Donkey Kong.
Voglio mangiare il pollo per la prima colazione!
Er, it should have read 1-4-7 in my first screens, not 1-2-3; the points are correct, however.
When observin the totals of the first 8 stages for the both of us, I noticed a pattern. You're quite better than me on the first screen each time; the third screen (vulture screen) is my bread and butter. Below is how many points we scored on those specific screens...Your 1st screens 12,330 12,780 18,330 (WOW)My 1st screens 10,480 10,850 11,090Your 2nd screens 6,850 7,050 5,150My 2nd screens 6,350 8,200 15,300Your 3rd screens 15,350 12,750 did not reachMy 3rd screens 22,450 18,450 35,250Obviously, I need to improve on the 1st screen and you need to improve on the 3rd screen for us to hit our potentials.
Since you lasted 8 levels in this video, I decided to compare how we fared on the first 8 levels. Here are the results.1st level totalsYou: 12,330Me: 10,4802nd level totalsYou: 19,180Me: 16,8303rd level totalsYou: 34,530Me: 39,2804th level totalsYou: 47,310Me: 50,1305th level totalsYou: 54,360Me: 58,3306th level totalsYou: 67,110Me: 76,7807th level totalsYou: 85,440Me: 87,8708th level totalsYou: 90,590Me: 103,170
Impressive improvement. On the level where you lost your last life, you cost yourself a 3,000-point bonus by waiting too long to hit Bluto with the Spinach. The music wore off before he hit the water, so no bonus.
We used to dominate quarterbakcing in football. Now... we dominate video games. Tomorrow... THE WORLD!
Terrible run this time. I normally get close to 50k; I screwed up after grabbing the hammer and failing to turn around in time.
Voted first before the trolls get their votes in. :)
Like the Donkey Kong Lego!
lmao. Reminds me of when they censored out the Swastikas in Bionic Commando and changed the Nazis' names to the BADD federation. I guess killing Nazis was too controversial for us Americans at the time?
Never saw this before. Is this a Contra hack?
Hey. Stop it. I'm tired of playing this!
First YES vote! Where's my cookie!?
Try double-tapping the d-pad when you climb; if you do it right, you'll climb up and down much faster.
Maybe, maybe not. You're quite good at the Donkey Kong games (I feel I'm better at the DK Jr. games than the DK games). The pie stage gets difficult on the later stages because you think the coast is clear to climb to the top, then WHAM! I will give it a try.
Bumped it up to 90% for you. The trolls are getting ridiculous. Nice score!
One of my favorites on the Colecovision!
Nananananananana, nananananananana, LEADER! I mean... BATMAN!
UGH. That sounds terrible (like Bubble Bobble on the Gameboy, except Bubble Bobble shows even less).
Wow. Arcade version is absolutely brutal. This is not like the NES or Colecovision ports at all.
Never knew this game existed for the Gameboy Color; makes me wish I still had my Gameboy Color.
Those of us in the Colecovision High Score Club at AtariAge are currently playing this game - among three others - in the current round.
I'll watch them and check them out, but I doubt I'll beat your score (if I do, it won't be so easily). The Figurits Revenge level always causes me to lose a few lives. If I can breeze through that level so easily, maybe I'll have a chance. Memorization is key on that one.
So many votes for ZX scores tonight... you and Frankie are beginning to make me think this is the only platform to exist in the world!
Remember: unlike the Colecovision port, the Spinach respawns in this one when you lose a life. if you lose a life without eating the spinach first, then that's a life wasted.
Speed 3 is displayed in the bottom center of the screen (SP 3).
Looks like you use the same emulator I use. Wii2600?
You should resubmit and give yourself the better score you actually achieved. You cut yourself short by 30 points on this submission. You actually had 28,330 points, not 28,300 points.
Never played this game, but I love the art on the cartridge label!
The Colecovision port is the only one I've ever played for Oil's Well, but I've always loved the game. You can't possibly go wrong with this game on any format! If there is a crappy version of it, heaven help whoever made it.
I'm not too fond of the Atari 7800 version. It's not bad... but it's not my favorite either; the sound is HORRIBLE for it, though.NES version is also my favorite for DK. I love the Colecovision port, as well. In regards to DK Jr., I love both the NES and Colecovision ports, but my favorite is the Colecovision port.Friendly advice: don't play DK Jr. on the Atari 2600. It SUCKS.
Insane run. Gave up after a few tries today and decided to stick with Standard for now. Might be a long time before I top this one (if ever).
I remember the cartoon but never knew they made a video game based on him. Wow!
Bouncing jack is always a pain in the ass. It doesn't always have the same landing spot. Took me a handful of attempts to get this score today. Steele, your scores on the higher difficulties are insane!
Very interesting. Always loved symbolism and how open to interpretation it can be. I was a tad confused to see He-Man's armor fitting so well and thought to myself, "That figure can't be He-Man. He-Man would never do yoga, meditation or pilates." lol
The Legend of Zelda red candle, Pac-Man's head, what appears to be He-Man's armor... who's the body?
Always loved the Colecovision port. No bouncing jacks!
Nice score. Way harder than the Colecovision port.
Now this looks like the Colecovision graphics I'm accustomed to!
Wow. Talk about crude graphics. Pauline looks like E.T. dressed up as Santa Claus.
I can vouch for what Larcen said. When I tried some Gameboy games on a Gameboy Advance emulator, I was surprised to see the old Gameboy games suddenly having a bit of color.
I saw one of these and a Pac-Man one at a Toys 'R Us a few months ago. Didn't buy them, though. I didn't like their prices for what looked like Tiger Electronics type graphics.
Just realized the Jaguar looks like those robotic vacuum cleaners that scare the cats.
Been a while since I've seen you here. Welcome back. Always loved the box art of the Atari game boxes you included in your pics for Atari submissions!
Pies slide very fast on the conveyor belts once you reach level 4. Picture taken with 3DS, due to no working webcam at this time. That's why I haven't submitted scores for a while and will be keeping submissions to a minimum until I get around to replacing the webcam.
You two are making me want to play this again.
I know the pain all too well.
Good score, Omar. Ignore the whiner.
I'm fine with you killing Pete multiple times. I voted YES for your score. I'm going to do the same thing myself. If it's fair when Bubu does it, then it's fair when we do it.
I thought it was obvious that he's TheDarkBanshee because he makes the same spelling errors in the same exact manner. He also has the same tone and sentence structure in his posts. He's a waste of everybody's time.
I hate how unresponsive the controls are for the arcade version of Donkey Kong Jr. It's so slow and clunky; there's no agility whatsoever. NES and Colecovision ports were much better for control and agility.
Nope. Your video evidence is still shit because you planted the seed of doubt by posting and claiming that you posted a fake score. Nobody can trust you. But for the record, the record holder should have never had 100% YES votes; I sure as hell cannot be blamed for it because I wasn't even a member back then.
Real or not, you said it yourself that you posted a fake score. The fact that anybody would deliberately try to cause panic, anarchy and confusion on this site makes their scores worthy of a NO vote. The purpose of this site is for people to submit their scores and vote on scores; trying to lie or cause confusion goes against the intended spirit of the site and is unwelcome here. So it really doesn't matter if your score is real or not; besides, the evidence isn't good enough anyway.
There's no need for me to debunk it. The fact that you even waste time here at all posting fake scores is more than enough reason to never vote YES for you. Simply put: you can't be trusted.
Is this picture indeed KaBoom and not the game where they drop the flower pots?
No, Ichigo. The fact that you clearly aren't paying attention makes you a perfect example of what Boot was talking about in the forums.
Boot, I saw the comment you left on my profile, but if you want to communicate with me, it's best to do so via comments in the forums or comments on scores such as this one. Profiles are basically THE most difficult thing to load on this site due to the errors.Even if I hand't read your post in the forums, I still would have voted NO on this score due to the fact that I've never seen submissions by you; therefore, you have no reputation in my eyes for me to trust you yet. Furthermore, you don't even show the hardware for your score despite posting in the hardware category. Last, but not least, you completely TRASHED the high score and show no video whatsoever. All those reasons alone are enough to vote NO on this score.As for spotting how the score is fake: I can honestly say I don't know how it is because I'm not an Atari 2600 expert. For consoles and games that I'm not very knowledgeable about, I vote YES or NO based on common sense and whether or not the evidence is good enough. In other words, you were still getting a NO from me.I don't like the little test/game you're trying to play here because all you're doing is submitting bullshit and thus creating more distrust and more anarchy on the site. So yes, of course you get bitched at by me.
Nintendo of America was always strange and hypocritical in their explanations. They never wanted it to be explicitly known that you KILL things in the game (such as the goombas when you jump on their heads in Super Mario Bros.) and didn't like the word KILL, yet it's obvious you're killing enemies in games such as Bionic Commando (especially when Hitler's head blew up). I guess they figure you were setting your bazookas to stun.Thankfully, they made an oversight and we were still able to nuke the hamster in the microwave in Maniac Mansion.
You don't belong here with your bullshit little games. GET OFF THE SITE.Everybody: Vote NO on this score. Boot Error posted in the discussions that he posted fake scores as a little test.
Challengers? You mean Challenger!
Impressive! It was lonely being in the 200k club.
If I get my hands on it, I'll have to give it a try sometime.
Now you know how I felt when I had to do 5 parts of video in BurgerTime for the Colecovision!
NES Emulator (FCE Ultra GX)
It's an NES ROM of the arcade game. There are NES ROMs of Playchoice10 games and VS Games.
Excellent score. The true #1 in the hardware category, as far as I'm concerned.
Should've had well over 200k, but I screwed up on the Super Bonus Stage and cost myself the 30k bonus that goes with it.
Thanks! I have an even better score that I've been waiting to upload a while, but I haven't submitted it yet because I'm still waiting for the final 3 votes on this one. The MAME scores take way too long to get 25 votes.
And thanks for the vote. I love the Q*Bert games. Always have. It's my opinion that Q*Bert and Popeye are some of the greatest - and most overlooked - games ever.
Colecovision port is still the best version of Q*Bert ever among the consoles.
Once I realized Lester was trapped and going nowhere, I paused the game to get the camera out and begin filming. HILARITY! The Downhill Jam event appears to stop accepting points once the race's timer reaches 2:45 on the game's clock.
I didn't kill him many times because I think it's a shoddy and cheap way to play. I have no desire to do something so pathetic as cheating in a video game.
Your score's already up for voting? It's not my fault my two videos take longer to upload than your one video.
Stop making me play Skate or Die!
I heard that Napoleon wasn't the short man everybody likes to portray him as, but that he was a man of actual average height. If I'm not mistaken, the French used to have an old system where 14 inches was a foot, which was why future generations mistakenly thought Napoleon was short.
7 feet and 3 inches is 87 inches.
You can watch the final minute of the video to see the High Scores show up. The scores highlighted in yellow were the scores I achieved during the "Compete All" phase at the end of the video. As you can see, the 7,133 points I scored in the Downhill Race were during the Compete All phase at the end of the video (likewise for the Ramp Highjump).The Downhill Jam and Ramp Freestyle top scores were achieved at some point earlier in the video. Feel free to watch the video if you want to see the exact moments those were achieved, but the High Scores log at the end of the video should suffice.
To see the blue screen where it says overall score of 25, watch the final minute of the video. You will see me defeating Lester in the Pool Joust (the final event of Compete All) and then that screen comes up.The scores highlighted in yellow were the scores achieved during the Compete All phase.
Yours, too. I have no doubt we're going to keep raising the bar on this one.
I had over a million points the other night when I wasn't filming, so I was disappointed to fail to reach the million during this filming session. By the way, the score indeed rolls over to zeroes once you hit a million points.
Arigato! I could have done much better if I didn't screw up a few times on the hammer swing mini-game. Did perfect a handful of times (5,000 bonus points each), but had several bad attempts for fewer or no points.
Successful run begins moments after the 16:25 mark.
Oh, successful run begins at 6:48
Wow. This is way harder than the NES version, in my opinion.
YES vote for you to bump it up to 85.7. Good luck!
I was just thinking that games like this and Tony Hawk Pro Skater would probablymake awesome VR experiences.
Yeah. Energizer battery pak. Had to recharge them afterward.
Put the cookie down... NOW! AND GET BACK TO THE CHOPPAH!
I'll be back... with an even better run next time. Vote for me if you want to live!
I see you have the same problems I have with level 35. Level 35 in non-NES versions is a bitch...
I should have never told you the secret to making level 42 slightly less difficult.
It's good to be the king! - Mel Brooks -
Level 42 was a piece of cake for me.
Thanks for the kind words, but I wouldn't go that far. I'm darn good at the NES port, but there are better players than me on the Arcade/MAME port. I also doubt I'm the only one who can get a million points on the Sega Master System port.
Should have beaten Kernzy's score, but I put myself in a tight spot at the end; even worse, the controller died at the end and made it impossible for me to wiggle my way out of there. Will give it another go some other time.
Due to Movie Maker's 1-hour filming limit, I had to film in two parts. The keys to getting the best possible ending are finding the 2 lost treasures and getting the bonus stages with Gyro.
I'm surprised by the NO votes on this. For those who are concerned that he might have played on 2-player B mode and farmed points and lives by killing player 2... I don't think so. Had he done that, he would've had close to 120,000 points instead of just 90,000 for beating the game.
Use whatever team you want. Just use the game's default settings.10-minute periodsNo line changesNo penaltiesNo offsidesFeel free to edit your starting lineup, however.
Awesome score. Kudos on not farming fake Shredders or motorcycle foot soldiers.
The only ways you can have 781 points without beating Krang are as follows:
First YES vote. Great score! Not far behind my current score in waiting.
I'm good at the first two Contra games but horrible at this one. Nice score!
Thanks! I'm still annoyed that I didn't top the 219k. I should have, but I stupidly jumped into that 2nd barrel at the end. If I don't hit that barrel, I think I easily top it (figure 2-3k for hitting barrels with the next hammer plus whatever time is remaining if I beat the level).When I had 219k, I lost my first life at 126k; you'd think losing your first life at 187k would result in topping your own score.
First life is lost at the 28:43 mark in the video.This was EASILY the best 1-life run I have ever had in Donkey Kong; which makes it all the more disappointing that I failed to crack my top score of over 219k. Nevertheless, my old 1-life score of 126k was easily crushed with this 187,700-point performance.
I'll gladly give this a YES vote if you submit it to the Supreme Master - or as this site incorrecty lists it, Supreme Warrior - difficulty. It's a damn good score, Pierpy. Also, I can say with confidence that I don't think Pierpy farmed points by turning two players on and killing player 2 at all. If he did, he would've had close to 120,000 points instead of 90,000.
My sincerest apologies for not having the entire gameplay on video. I made it through the first six levels without losing a life, then paused the game at the Trap Room level to look at the timer. Even though I pressed the red record button in Windows Movie Maker, it apparently wasn't recording yet! Ugh.It was a good thing I paused the game to check Movie Maker's timer; otherwise, I would have never realized it wasn't recording. At that point, I clicked record again and made doubly sure it was recording from that point forward.The fact that I beat the game is proof that this was played on Supreme Master difficulty (although High Score incorrectly lists it as Supreme Warrior). The final boss of this game is ONLY available on the Supreme Master difficulty.
And that score should be removed, too.
Voting NO on this one. The enemy you fight in your picture is not avaiable on the default setting (Warrior). You obviously played the game on Supreme Master difficulty.
Also, Gretzky led the way with 11 goals and 8 assists.
I had the default settings (10-minute periods, no line changes, no penalties, no offsides). I did, however, edit my line. I went with Blake-Sydor on defense and Granato-Gretzky-Robitaille on offense.
Pathetic. Only won 23-1 and should have done much better than this. Comical how Wayne Gretzky with a 99 stickhandling rating bobbles passes the whole game (goold ol' typical EA Sports).The 23-1 victory gives me a margin of 22. I included the CPU goalie stats so you can see that all 23 goals were indeed scored against a goalie.
This was actually pathetic. Should have done much better than this. I included the goalie stats so you can see the CPU goalie allowed all 23 goals I scored against him. The 23-1 victory gives me a margin of 22.
You didn't get the 72 in the shot, but I know the Spurs had 72 because I added up the points from the players' stats in the picture. I'll give you a YES vote for now, but you really should show video in the future as evidence that you played the specific settings.
Very fun game! It's also the kind of game that makes you feel like you'll get carpal tunnel via the d-pad.
I got the secret room on level 20 this time!
Way harder than the NES version. It's harder to bounce off of multiple bubbles as you shoot them in mid-air in this game, and it seems like it's impossible to shoot bubbles and jump off of them if you're trapped in a tiny box. I missed the secret room on level 20, as well. I think I did well for somebody who is new to the MAME version of the game.
Just tried Game A and Game B moments ago to spot the differences. The timers are the same on the same levels in both versions; however, the speeds are different. The elevators start moving fast on the jacks level at 4-2 on Game A; in Game B, it moves at that speed once you reach level 3-2. So Game B is basically a level 2 start.
Thanks for the vote. If I remember correctly, Level 1 on Game B is the equivalent of Level 2 on Game A (I could be mistaken). Remember how fast the elevators move on Level 4 of Game A on the bouncing jacks stage? If memory serves me correctly, it moves that quickly on level 3 of Game B.
Jump button didn't work at the end. Perhaps I mistimed it when I was walking the ledge.
As you can see at the end of the video, my controller died and I could no longer play. Had no choice but to just let it run its course and end the game.
This port is one of the worst video games I have ever played in my life. It sucks.
Congrats, rasta mon!'nuff people say you know them think it's kinda lameJES set a high score for another game
My problem with the Colecovision port is that there is no indication as to your positioning when you make your jumps. Jumping on the fishes is the worst part, especially when you're jumping from one row of fish to the next row of fish. There is nothing to indicate whether you miss the head or tail sideways by mere pixels or if you're going to overshoot your jump when you're perfectly centered.Zaxxon did a wonderful job of giving you a sense of position. Imagine playing Zaxxon and having no clue where you really are; that is what Congo Bongo feels like to me on the hippo/fish stage.
I was practicing this game for the Colecovision last night, and that port is HORRIBLE as well!
Well, this is a rarity... a TIE SCORE that isn't a maxed-out score.
Had a lot of bad luck on the last few levels.
Thank you for the compliment, Mangia! I was curious to see what the top score was in the Colecovision hardware category, so it was by chance that I came here and saw your comment. I appreciate it. You're not a slouch at Oil's Well yourself, either. You're a king in Lady Bug, though. I can't even get close to your scores in that game.
Successful run begins after the Game Over at the 9:35 mark.
Due to Windows Movie Maker's 1-hour time limit, I had to pause the emulator near the 1-hour mark and save part 1 of the video before I could resume filming.
Thanks. It's a shame we can't vote 25 times apiece on the scores. I still have scores from January 4th waiting for votes.
Should have scored a lot more points, but I stupidly fired the projectile at the end instead of ducking. The button response in this game is terrible.
The ghosts seem to be very random on hard difficulty... as if they were studying your own patterns.
Well, I learned the hard way that the screen disappears very quickly after the game over, so that ruled out getting a picture with my 3DS camera and my name tag. I had to play again and then use the print screen button to get a screenshot before it was too late.I wasn't sure if the large original-size image would upload successfully on this site or not, so I also included the half-sized image as well. If you view both images in new tabs or new windows, you will see that the bottom image if half the size of the top image.
First one to vote YES on this one. I struggle mightily with this game in MAME, despite the fact that I handle other games just fine. Guessing my Wii remote is a horrible fit for this game, as I have been informed it's a three-button game and I'm primarily using two buttons.Good score!
Successful run begins after the game over at the 5:14 mark. If not for those annoying crocs at the end, it's possible I might have gone on to score close to 40,000 points.
Impressive score, but I've come to take back the crown. Currently uploading the latest video to YouTube. In the meantime, you can wear it until I get the votes necessary.
Gut-punch him every time he charges, then hope he's down for the count.
FINALLY! Successful run begins shortly after the game over at the 16:42 mark.
I actually do much better on Skill 4 because the birds are so slow on Skill 2 and I don't have the patience for it.
I had it! I was about to beat Level 6-1 but the snake got to the final square just before I could!
The idiots voting NO apparently don't know how to read this...Rules: Play with default settings unless otherwise specified. No hacked ROMs. No passwords or cheat codes. Must be played on a Game Boy compatible handheld device, Super Game Boy SNES/Super Famicom attachment, or GameCube Game Boy Player attachment.
I was halfway through the 2nd stage before I figured out how to do the dropkicks.
Thanks. I hit the record button and thought it was being recorded, but Movie Maker apparently didn't record. Once I realized it, I took a snapshot when I had a game over. Just glad I didn't crush the high score (I wouldn't have submitted it then if it destroyed the previous high). Frankly, I thought this site's high score for this game would have been much higher.
First time I ever played any Atari Lynx game. The games seem slow to me.
I'm confident I can do much better than this. I missed out on several 3,000-point bonuses by being too slow once I got the spinach can. There's subtle differences that make this harder than the NES and Colecovision ports; it'll just take some practice for me.
First time I ever played this game. Looks interesting and fun.
Stupid mouse....Never mind. Much easier to see in full screen mode.
JES is right; the score is quite easy to see on the initials screen if you're viewing it in full screen mode. Same for my videos as well: much easier to see my ID tag and scores in full screen.
First YES vote about 20 minutes ago. Wanted to let you know the following: easy to see the score while you're putting in the initials, but more difficult to see it once the initials screen is gone (can somewhat make it out on the title screen, however).
De nada, amigo.
Skipping for now. It looks like you have the wrong game here. The title screen intro is different than the one Kernzy and Deteacher played. Theirs is Mr. Pac-Man while you're playing Ms. Pac-Man.
In my opinion, it's way harder than the Colecovision one. In fact, I'm often finding that the Atari 2600 ports are harder than the Colecovision ports of the same games.
Furthermore, when you load Q*Bert on the Colecovision, it immediately goes to the blue screen where you choose a skill level. It is a Parker Bros. game that bypasses the Colecovision BIOS screen, just like Popeye and Frogger! There was nothing omitted in the recording.
Thanks. Some idiot voted NO and said they wanted video of the entire gameplay and that a partial recording made them uncomfortable. THE ENTIRE GAMEPLAY IS IN THE VIDEO!
Once you get to level 6-1, planning/thinking is mostly thrown out the window and you're just reacting.
I believe there's a special place in hell for whoever did the controls for this game.
I had the same bullshit reason given on some of my recent submissions, as well.
Nice to see it's still at 100% after my YES vote.
Bumped it up from 72.7% to 75% for you. Keep including video!
First life lost at World 7-1 at the 35:35 mark in the video.
I was actually getting ready to play this in a few minutes.
That flies in the face of any logic on this site. There are people on this site who consider the PS2 slim to be PS2 emulated rather than PS2 hardware; in the same breath, this site would then consider the Xbox One to be Atari 2600? What a joke.
I definitely agree that this wasn't a masterpiece of a game, however. Having to press B so many times to cycle through the moves in a limited amount of time is not my idea of fun. It's not the worst, but it's not great, either. I'd call this game playable at best.
It's not as repetetive as you might think, though. Yes, it's the same tag team over and over again, but the CPU becomes increasingly - and annnoyingly - difficult in the later matches. When their wrestlers turn red, it's virtually impossible to strike them; in the later matches, they turn red almost every second of the match! The key is to try to get count-out wins because they never turn red outside the ring.
Just bumped it from 71.4% to 75% for you.
Suffered a double count-out loss in round 17, which means I won 16 rounds. Normally better than this, but sometimes the CPU just beats you to the punch.
The responsiveness of the controls for the NES version still sucks for this game, as always. Colecovision port of Q*Bert is still the best.
Indeed. Getting rid of Blatter doesn't solve the problem, either, as it takes many to carry out such corruption. Nice to see this machine's still around and being played, though! Sorry about the soccer posts here, Euph, but I hope you had fun playing it!
1994 World Cup still holds the record for attendance (at a time when soccer's popularity in America was slowly increasing and not at the level it's at now); it's absurd that they awarded the WC hosting to Qatar rather than the USA.
That'll happen, especially if you have an overly sensitive mousepad on a laptop like I do. You think you're moving an arrow and it somehow clicks.
I'm not a pinball player, so I wouldn't know. I imagine it would, as the art/graphics match that of the old TV show. The sounds of the old show would totally capture the spirit of it while playing.
Loved the old Batman show. You should top your score next time. Same bat time, same bat channel!
Surprised your score isn't much higher, considering how good you are at Galaga. Is the NES version harder than the arcade version?
Held the cursor over the G, but time ran out before I could get the camera out to take the picture and it wouldn't let me put the G in anymore.
Although I've beaten this game in the past, Machine Gun Willy has always been troublesome.
Thanks. It's hard to be consistent in this game. My best is 340,150 points (failed at level 20 and had a bunch of diamonds), but I didn't have that run on video. It's been difficult to repeat that great run! One run, I'll have over 200,000 points, and then another run, I'll have barely over 100,000. Scores are very hit-or-miss in this game.
Not my best, but it is the best I have on video.
Thanks. I felt I could have done better, as I usually have 1 or 2 stupid deaths. Much easier to rack up the points on skill 1 because you have five lives and margin for error; with only 3 lives, the margin for error is much thinner.Sometimes the stupid deaths are the result of me being too greedy for points and trying to be too fancy or too perfect. When things get complicated, just finish the dang level and save the lives.
After dealing with Robomanus, I'm sure Machine Gun Willy would be no problem for the Battletoads.
Love the SNES graphics but I feel the controls were tighter and more responsive on the NES.
First YES. Seeing a lot f Shoot-em-up games on High Score lately!
Funny thing about the TEST YOUR MIGHT game. On the Genesis itself, I never failed TEST YOUR MIGHT. On the emulators, I fail it all the time because my Wii remote is actually terrible for that.
Yeah, gazhally or something like that. A little competition can be a good thing!
What I mean was you came close to losing. Good recovery!
I'll phrase it several different ways to make it easier.You almost had a game over several times.You almost lost and ended the game several times.Several close calls!
You were awfully close to a GAME OVER a few times.
Bumped it from 80 to 83 for you. This bullshit is unacceptable.
The score rolls over when you hit a million points. The first million was hit a moment after 9:20 in the video; the second million was hit a moment after 16:52 in the video. Out of sheer boredom, I chose to lose the remaining lives and finished the game with 2,301,200 pts.
Agreed. Q*Bert and BurgerTime are two games that I think are better on the Colecovision than on other consoles.
Love the graphics. Looks way more menacing than the NES port.
Not a good score for me. Normally do much better than this.
If you make a site similar to this, it will need to have many things done differently, as this site has way too many flaws.
First YES for you.
I don't think the admin is done with the site, but I also don't think he's very active with it, either. It's obviously not a high priority to him.
So your score which was close to my record is at 85% and Omar's score which was close to my record is at 100%; however, my score that breaks my own record is at a lowly 40% despite the fact that there's a photo AND VIDEO. Like you said, this site gets tiresome anymore.
Topped my old record by a very narrow margin. Game over at the 5:02 mark and then the successful run begins.I was confused by the several crocodile deaths I had; I could have sworn I timed the attacks perfectly.
First yes vote for you. I'm amazed at how many developers were able to get away with making knock-offs of other games back in the day. But then again, if the knock-offs were made by the same developers as the original, I suppose that was okay.
First time I ever played the arcade version of Donkey Kong Junior. Good game! The movements felt clunky and less agile compared to the console versions of the game. Will take some getting used to.
This looks like the type of game that probably served as inspiration for the Simpsons Road Rage game Ichigo was playing.
You were at 80% and my YES vote bumped it up to 83% just now. Sounds like you only had one NO vote (so you're either 5/6 or 10/12 right now).
Good score. So close! This skill level is difficult and annoying.
Voting yes right now. Omar's score right here is still at 100% at the moment. Due to your comments, SeaBass, I'm interested in seeing what the percentages are by the time I reach yours. Sorry you're going through this crap.
I really don't care what you're sick of seeing. I don't see you bitching about Excitebike and other such games on here.
So I was right about it being a 4 after all. I know it's just 200 points, but it was 200 points you were entitled to and correctly submitted this time.
Uploaded this video to YouTube back in April at the old place. I finally put in a request for this game recently.In games that have no timers displayed on the screen, you need to define the start and end of a game for speed runs. In this video, I define the start at 30 seconds (when your character appears on screen) and the end at 10:57 (when Jason is struck with the final blow). That puts this speed run at 10 minutes and 27 seconds.
Yes. The Colecovision was my first console and it is still my favorite to this day (along with the NES). A cousin of mine had Atari 2600 and I occassionally played it when I slept over at her house during the summer as a kid; likewise, she played the Colecovision when staying at my house.I actually didn't mind the Colecovision controllers; I loved them and did well with them. They are less than ideal for some games, however.
Meanwhile, I'm skipping until you can clarify with a reply what the final 3 digits are. If I'm right, then you can just resubmit with the higher digits and I'll vote for that.
You might have sold yourself short here. Aren't the last 3 digits 490 rather than 290? Looks like 490 to me but I'm not positive. I hate how difficult some fonts are to read in some of these games.
You should remove this and resubmit it with the correct score. The score in the picture is 2,200. NOT 2,220.
Nevertheless, be pleased with your effort and the fact that it's a marked improvement over your previous submission. Always compete with yourself. You can do even better eventuallybecause your decision-making in the game will become second nature.
Congratulations! This isn't one of my best Colecovision games; nevertheless, it's not often that somebody tops my score in Colecovision.
In addition to showing a 16-second clip, you see that his score is over 500k on LEVEL 3. If you don't point-farm, you can beat the game without ever reaching 500k (also possibly without ever reaching 400k). The point-farming is self-evident in this clip.
Wow, Foster. Kudos on getting over 100k. It was a pain in the neck just getting 96k. The further I got in the game, the more screen passes I was throwing and hoping for good blocking. At that point, you're relying on the first downs to save you!
There is one Moon Patrol listings for the Colecovision that's already on the site, but it has no scores yet.Moon Patrol: Beginner CourseIf you put in a request for the Beginner Course, then it's likely going to be rejected because the Beginner Course is already in the database.
It's about the troll voters, as evidenced by the fact that it's a direct reply to Larquey's comment about troll voters. It's not rocket science.
I'm used to it. Let the babies have their bottles.
I was surprised by how fast the bottles flew across the screen on the later levels. Had no idea Nolan Ryan was hiding in the shadows.
Mara, I decided to play JAWS and double-check to see if you can get a bonus for killing him, and I got my answer...At the THE END screen after you beat the game, you have to wait quite a while! When the music stops playing, you press start and the game indeed does start over (it's a long wait for the music to end first). When you start the game over, it shows you startinga new game and a high score. You do NOT get any bonus points for killing Jaws at all, sadly.
Some things to keep in mind:1. After you grab the spinach, if you fail to knock Bluto into the water before the theme music ends, you miss out on a 3,000-point bonus. Even if you successfully knock him into the water, you need him to fall into it before the music ends to attain the bonus.2. Unlike the NES port, the spinach does not respawn on a level after you use it and lose a life.
Should have done much better than this. Had a few stupid deaths and accidentally went up when I meant to go left as I lost the final life.
Easily the shortest video I've ever uploaded.
The first time I tried this and it got to the final race, I thought it would be over in 20 seconds. Almost 3 minutes later, I'm thinking, "HOW LONG IS THIS RACE!?!?!?"
WHY? Why did you even play this? I tried it once and it felt like my shoulder was going to rip from its socket (my shoulder never felt like that when I threw a 90 mph fastball in my baseball days)!
I voted YES on your MK scores, but if people voted no because of the blood, then it might be because they think you used cheat codes. Didn't you have to enter a cheat code to enable the blood on the SNES and Genesis versions of Mortal Kombat 1?
I did much better this time, but I still say this version's harder than the NES port.
I got six million without losing a single round earlier on the Genesis version of Mortal Kombat (I also failed every test your might because the Wii remote is horrible for that). It was played on Very Easy difficulty, but I didn't film it so I didn't bother submitting a score yet.
I watched your video again to see how close you were to hitting Jaws with the pole. Close to the 17-minute mark of the video, you successfully aligned him with the pole and then made him jump out of the water; however, you were a tad late in making the stab.Another thing to consider: if you let him get too close to the pole, even timing the stab properly won't work because if he's too close, he's technically under it rather than in front of it. Around the 17-minute mark in this video, you lined him up perfectly but were late in making the stab.
I felt I played terribly with too many reckless/stupid deaths; nevertheless, I was able to top my previous submission.
So glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks the SNES version is a load of bull.
To kill Jaws, you need to align the wooden pole in the center with him and stab him in the neck when you get him to jump out of the water (you press A on the NES control to make him jump and then you press B and UP to stab him).You know what sucks, though? I don't know if you get bonus points for killing him at all, because when you kill him, the game NEVER shows you the final score and it is stuck at the THE END screen. The only way to see your score in this game is to play the game or get a game over by getting killed; you cannot see a score after killing Jaws.
This is way harder than the NES version. The mansion layouts are slightly different and more difficult, and the cats are faster/smarter in this one.
"Please sign in to view this video."
Well, that was very strange at 8:49 in the video. In the seconds leading up to 8:49, you see player 2 being awarded 500 points even though there is no player 2 anywhere on the screen. A destroyed enemy landed where player 2 would be if there were 2 players playing.
Video is up now and it's below the picture.
First time playing this version of the game. I know I can do much better than this; there are ways where this game is very different from the NES version and I just have to get used to the differences.One thing confuses me, however. Why does it say player 2 has 500 points when I never put 2 players on? Does this have something to do with grabbing the red crystal ball that appeared after I entered a doorway?I'll share the video soon. I need to log into Youtube and upload/process it.
This game is too easy for me on the Colecovision, as I normally get into the millions there. I'm finding the Atari 2600 ports to be much more difficult than the Colecovision ones!
He does have access to a recording device, as he used to do videos until recently.
I played this game at a cousin's birthday party at one of those Chuck E. Cheese type places as a kid (place was called Major Magic). Never beat the game yet, though.
A yes for you, and thank you for sharing a video of this.
I'm actually disappointed in this score. I had over 400,000 last night when I wasn't filming. Struggled today, but it's still good enough to take the #1 spot here.
The score rolls over to zeroes once you hit 100,000 points. The image below the video is a picture of the moment when my score was about to roll over; I had 99,625 points at that moment and I rode the disc at the top of the pyramid to roll the score over (as you will see in the final minutes of the video).
Thank you. I was a Colecovision kid and didn't play much Atari growing up, although my cousin had an Atari 2600. Lately, I'm seeing the Atari 2600 scores that you and others submit and thinking, "That's a cool game, I should try it." This was one of those games that looked cool to me. I enjoyed it!
Game over at 3:23, then the successful run begins. In my opinion, the Atari 2600 port is more difficult than the Colecovision; I also think the music sounds much better in this version.
How is this at 90%? People, stop voting yes for this score. This is an Xbox One game with Atari Classics on it. Look at the buttons displayed in the picture!
If not for missing several ghosts, I would have easily had 12,000-plus points.
As a kid, I always wished the mainstream consoles had a Thundercats game.
Not a fan of how slowly the doors open/close in this one. In the NES/Famicom version, I can open and close the same door four times before the same door closes twice in this one; it also seems like sometimes the doors refuse to open or close at all in this one.
Third image is a pic I took with my 3DS to show the Wii hardware powered on; I cropped out the bottom rows of the bookshelf as the VHS tapes and DVDs are not relevant.
I should've had a higher score but I screwed up the very first bonus stage and missed a perfect game. The arcade version of Mappy is very unforgiving in comparison to the NES/Famicom version!
Thank you for the tip! Going to give it a try next time.
Wow. Not being able to see the entire maze on the screen at all times makes this game more difficult than it should be.
I was surprised to see your loading screen in Italian, then I saw your profile and realized you are from Italy!
The failed run ends at 4:55 in the video and then the successful run begins.
I'm one of the few who are the opposite in that I love the Colecovision controller. I especially prefer it for games such as Oil's Well.
It feels awkward controlling both penguins until you get the hang of it; even then, it's still an awkward feeling and never feels 100% natural. It's a nice game, nonetheless. The levels with the fires are very annoying.
Loved this game as a kid on the Colecovision; however, this is one of those rare games where I prefer the NES verison over the Colecovision version. NES port of Popeye is the best I've played.
Impressive score! But shouldn't this be submitted under Donkey Kong classics, since that is the game you're playing Donkey Kong on? Donkey Kong Classics was released in 1988 while Donkey Kong was released on the NES in 1986.Nevertheless, nice score!
Although the glare in the center makes it difficult to read the 175,600 pts. in the middle, you can see it says on the right side of the picture that the high score is 175,600 pts.
Video's pic before you play it looks like you're shooting a red Chinese New Year dragon.
As you will see in the video, Game B was selected. This is a pathetic score for me, even on Game B; I'm normally much better than this.
Welcome back! Haven't seen you posting scores on here lately.
I felt I could have done better. Stupidly lost several lives in the early stages getting the feel for this game. I'll try to take a shot at the top score some other day.
You know you're a pro when Andy Griffith tells you you're a pro. Move over, Deputy Fife!
Yes. Option 1: `1-player parallel.
Wow. This crushes the score I set in Flashback category (118,000). Awesome score!
I should have scored way more points (a bonus stage is a guaranteed 10,000 for me), but I didn't see Goro hiding behind the final safe on the level where I lost my last life. He jumped out at me right when I was ready to grab it!
Been playing this game a lot since yesterday and I'm improving at it now. Love this game! Finished with 195,140 points moments ago; however, I'm waiting for this submission to receive the necessary 25 votes first before submitting the new score.
Thanks. This game is more difficult than I thought it would be, due to the fact that you cannot jump. I'm regularly getting 50-80k on my bad runs and 100-115k on my good runs. Some of the deaths seem unfair and cheap, though.
Wow. This game's way harder than Mappy-Land.
Ah, pinball... and this is probably the only game where you can say "I got 930 million points" and somebody else says "That score sucks."
Stupid mistakes and missed opportunities cost me a lot more points. Had over 250k the other night when I wasn't filming. The 140k to 180k range is what I normally hit with consistency. On both the Colecovision and the NES, Popeye has always been one of my favorite games. I usually prefer Colecovision ports of games; however, I like the NES version of Popeye better.
I like this version just for the Mt. Dew logo!
Tried to vote YES earlier, but you removed it so you could put these new pics in to replace the sideways pics. Nice to finally be able to vote on it!
Premium is my favorite. Unleaded is the difficulty I hate most of all. With Premium, the explosion is at least slow-moving and you can focus on everything else.
Slight improvement over my old score. I know I can do much better than this; unfortunately, I run into bad luck where I quickly lose several lives stupidly.
This a sequel to Star Soldier?
First time I ever played this game. Ran out of lives at the giant snowman battle on level 2.
Forgot to upload this one a while ago. Set this score during Season 10, Round 3 of the AtariAge Colecovision High Score Club.
STOP. You're making us Americans look bad at logic games!
Still have a ways to go to catch you, S.BAZ, but I'm getting closer!
This version of the game is more difficult than I thought it would be.
Was it a fun and worthy purchase?
Because he uses two players when he shouldn't use two players; he uses passwords when he shouldn't use passwords; he also uses emulators and shows only pics of those emulators while posting them in the hardware category without actually showing the hardware (like he did for the current high score on Bubble Bobble) while trying to make it look like he played fair and square when what he really did was use save states (and he's done it on other games, as well).He also contaminated other high score charts with point farming. Frankly, he shoudl have been kicked off of this site and off of Twin Galaxies long ago. Even worse than the fact that he is a constant cheater is that he's always unapologetic about it. He acts like he can't remove his current score for this game when all he has to do is submit a lower score to remove it. P.O.S. only cares about himself and his own inflated ego.
I love that you include the boxes in your pictures. I was a Colecovision kid, so I never knew how great the box art was on the Atari boxes.
In the Atari 2600 version of Frogger, you can ride the logs through the sides of the screen to reappear on the other side; you cannot do that in the Colecovision port of the game.
Don't worry about that cheater. Do it for the sake of competing with yourself and improving upon your own score.
Actually, now that I look at your score on level 26 and checked my video... I had over 607,000 pts when I finished level 26. You had almost 450,000 pts when you lost your last life at level 26; you're actually not too far off from the pace I set. Good score!
Go to the emulation category for this game and watch my video to see how you can rack up a lot of points very quickly in this game.
Your score should be #1 for this category once it passes. The current #1 MatthewFelix cheated, has always been a cheater, and has cheated numerous times on numerous games.
It's a good score. You'll eventually reach the point where you only get the game over screen at the dragon battles. It's nice to see you playing the Flashback lately!
It's a shame you didn't have video for this... I totally wanted to see you yelling, "DEATH TO MIIIIIIIIIIING!"
I might be able to use my 3DS to do a quick filming session sometime. I'll see what I can do. It's easier for me to film things that are on my TV because I use Windows Movie Maker, but filming what's on my computer screen itself? Perhaps the 3DS might suffice.
First image is the screenshot of the 141 pts (via print screen button); the second image is a picture taken with my 3DS camera and includes my nametag.
Decided to play Flappy Bird as it's been a long time since I fired it up. Finished with 141 pts. moments ago.
I had to click the mouse button to make the bird flap higher into the air. The trick to doing well is knowing when to send the bird very high into the air and letting him fall a bit so he can get between the pipes and then start clicking again to flap him above the pipes. The timing has to be very precise or he'll fall right onto the pipe.
No, I was playing on my laptop. I did not use the mousepad in the middle of my laptop; I plugged a USB mouse in and used that to play.
Nevermind. Upon closer inspection of your picture, I see that you played in the browser. Even if you download the free game from the Shop, you're still getting those stupid ads while playing.
A vote of YES from me. Aren't those ads annoying while you play? There were several times where it looked like I was going to fail early when I played because of those ads; I was fortunate to keep on going. Like me, I'm guessing you got this as one of those free games from the Windows Shop.
Voted YES for you, but don't be surprised if you get a NO vote here or there. In the future, I'd recommend video evidence for games where you roll the score over. I almost voted NO myself because the score in the photo did not match your final score; however, seeing your comment about the score rolling over and viewing the series of pictures - before and after the rollover - changed my mind.
The pic of your score is terrible and not easy to read at all.
Thanks. Always loved this game and still have the cart for it, as well. Once I eventually get around to replacing my NES, I'll submit scores in the hardware category as well.
As you can see, my name tag is in the video but not in the picture. My cat knocked it down and wouldn't leave it alone, so I took it away from him.Not only is this 479,600 pts my personal best in Mappy-Land, but so is the 46,000 points I had on the very first level (1-1).
What I'm saying is that when you started playing, you had 4 credits. One of the pictures you posted shows you have 2 credits remaining. When you had a game over with like 39,000 points or so, you used another credit to restart the game.The only reason you got a YES vote from me is because those credits DID reset your score to zero points and reset you to level 1 (which is truly starting over). I'm saying you should never have multiple credits because they can mislead people into thinking you cheated. Some games let you KEEP your score when you use another credit instead of resetting to zero. For this reason, It's better to just play with one credit so it reads as zero credits and then just insert a new one AFTER a game over.
Skipping for now. Can anybody vouch that this indeed belongs in Arcade and not Arcade/MAME?
Even though you use multiple credits, I'm giving you a YES vote because the score did reset to zero and it did reset you back to the first level. In the future, though, you shouldn't use multiple credits because it can be very misleading to voters. It's better to use one credit, then just insert a new credit after the game over.
200 points is only one virus killed.
Version 2012 (it has a 16.InsertBunchofNumbersHere)
I have Windows 8, and Movie Maker always has a 1-hour filming limit for me. I first learned it a long time ago when I noticed an error message saying that the filming stopped and that it had exceeded the 1-hour limit.
Due to Windows Movie Maker's 1-hour time limit, I had to pause the game when I approached the hour and continue filming in a second video. In video 2, you will see the score of 999,999 points being reached; you will also see that the score does not roll over to 0 and stays maxed out at 999,999 pts.
I know the feeling. This isn't one of those games where you play 5 to 10 minutes and then try again. You play it over and over and over again for days, even weeks to get the best score you can get. Donkey Kong's a fun game, but it's an annoying pain in the ass to play competitively because you feel you wasted so much time to get the score you're capable of getting.If not for those bouncing jacks, this game would be oh-so-easy.
Hell of a score!
As you can see from the video, this was played on difficulty level 3. My margin of victory was 68 points (100-32).
I like this version, too. The OpCode Games version (Pac-Man Collection) is a little difficult for my tastes. It's hard to explain, but it just feels like Pac-Man moves slower in that game and the controls aren't as tight.The feel in this game feels like perfection.
Right-click on score and view image in a new tab to get a much better view.
Well, I spent quite some time playing the mode where you do both the skating and the surfing. Did 103 levels and quit after 742,670 pts. I don't have the patience to keep playing and roll the score over (not this time, perhaps some other day...). By the way, round 100 reads as 00 while round 101 reads as 01 and so on and so forth.
Also, NOT ONCE did I see you touch the spilled oil. Don't be afraid to skate right over the oil; the oil gives you a higher top speed. Once you improve your play in this game, the greater top speed is very handy at helping you collect things and maxing out the life meter sooner (and thus freezing the timer sooner).
I just finished watching your video and I see that you and I have different approaches to how we navigate through the levels. Some of your deaths were very avoidable (the baseballs hitting you) and some of them stemmed from you taking unnecessary risk and making it harder. For instance, I notice you try to get the 1,000-point bonus from the ramp jumps way more often than I do. I do that sparingly because if you fall in the hole and mess it up, it just makes it harder for you to freeze the timer (timer does not freeze until you max out the life meter).Once my score passes, I'll do another playing session where I film it so you and others can see what I do differently in a video.
First yes vote on this score, and thank you for the kind words. The skateboarding's not bad once you get used to it and improve at it; the surfing segment of the game is more difficult, in my opinion.
Thanks. I can do much better but screwed up by losing 2 lives (made it impossible to freeze the timer) late in the game. I was able to sneak in another quick 1,000 pts. by doing a trick jump off the ramp over the hole before time ran out.
You did better than I thought you would on Pepper II. Congrats on the 214k! You were superb in the Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man games from the Pac-Man collection. I'm much better at the AtariSoft prototype Pac-Man than I am at the Pac-Man collection version. When you play all of them, you realize that not all iterations are the same in how they play.
I suck at this horrible game. I thought the highest score for this game would be much higher than what I posted.
Haven't seen you post a lot of scores. It's nice to see you're still around and having fun with the site.
People, stop voting yes for somebody who uses continues.
Congrats on beating my score in Circus Charlie. The monkeys on the 2nd level are ANNOYING.
Game over at the 1:55 mark in this video, then the successful run begins shortly after.I've had over a million before, but this is the first time I filmed this game. When you reach 1 million points, it rolls over to zero and you get an extra life.
No worries. You've always made it easy to vote YES for your scores because you put in the effort to ensure us they're legitimate. You're the only iOS/phone/whatever user I can say that about thus far.
So how do you win? By double-clicking her mouse?
Used to be so much better at this version of the game. Back in the day, 120k was usually my minimum.
I actually should have had a much better score, but I lost my final life stupidly and early on level 9. Surprisingly, I had no diamonds at all in this session.
Not bad for my first time trying the NES version of this game. Oyama, I'll have another go at your record some other day. Thanks for recommending this game!
Got almost 2 million on Game A for this on the 3DS and over 600k on Game B for the 3DS. You need a lot of luck in addition to doing well because sometimes there's cheap deaths on the sparks levels where sparks just MAGICALLY appear where there were no sparks.
Should've had a lot more points, but I stupidly lost my final life on an ill-timed jump at the top of the screen and hit a bird.
Lost multiple lives in a matter of seconds as the red fire, green fire, and Donkey Kong barrels were all in the way. Fun game!
Definitely not my best game. I did several attempts to get the 50,000-point bonus and came close on several of those tries; however, it feels virtually impossible for me to get it.
I have been voting. I catch up to my votes on a daily basis. I'm glad you're having a fun time on your trip to these arcades!
Almost finished the level 9 boss battle when an unfortunate hit ruined it for me.
You have to show the hardware itself being played in the video when you submit hardware scores. Skipping for now...
Nice score! The 2nd level is the frustrating one.
If you have difficulty reading the score, then open the image in a new tab and you will see it clearly.
The picture reminds me of Venture.
KUMITE! KUMITE! KUMITE!
Nice Master System. Hadn't seen one since I was a kid; I have seen some users on this site play via the Master System expansion on their Genesis.
That's insane. Playing for hours to get millions in BurgerTime is tiring enough!
I already did. I catch up to all voting on a daily basis.
You should say in a Forrest Gump voice, "Sorry I ruined y'all's Black Panther score."
Voted YES, but only after turning the game on to double-check the "BEST TIME" to beat on track 1. If you are not going to post a video, then you should at least do a better job of proving it was track 1 by posting the information (such as what the BEST TIME to beat is on each track) to make it easier for voters. Voters shouldn't have to do your homework for you. Nevertheless, congratulations on a great time!
The fact that it's a CRT TV doesn't prove that you're playing on the hardware itself; it's still necessary to show the hardware in a picture. Emulators can be played on more than just computers, as they can be played on consoles too (Nintendo Wii has a bunch of emulators, for instance). So YES, YOU CAN EMULATE ON A TELEVISION.For you to suggest that voters who don't know what this game is shouldn't vote... that is downright ignorant. Like I already said, I know this game and voted YES for you, but I can fully understand why somebody would vote NO. If you're not going to post video, then you should take every measure necessary to enhance the strength of your picture evidence. Laziness/sloppiness is going to get NO votes from people.
I voted YES on your score, but I can see why somebody would vote NO. For starters, your original pic did not show the actual console. Since this is not an emulation category, you need to show the console. Secondly, you need to also have a picture identifying the game (title screen or whatever) if you are not showing video at all. Not everybody knows this game.When you don't have video, extra measures need to be taken so that people see the console but also know for sure that the game you're playing is the game you claim it to be. There have been users who posted pictures of the wrong games before.
How are you people voting YES on this when the score submitted doesn't even match the score in the evidence???
What horrid graphics! Granted, this Odyssey came out in 1978, but still bad for its time.
That's because I mastered the Coleco games since childhood. It was my first video game console growing up (and my favorite).
I'm going to skip the vote on this for now. Just so you know, people might be quick to vote NO or be reluctant to vote YES because this looks like you're playing on an arcade machine. It does look like the NES version of the game to me, but the fact that you're playing on such a machine might make people assume it's ARCADE/M.A.M.E. instead of NES.It would help your case if you elaborate on what you're playing on.
If I call the number on the post-it, does that mean you give me free cash?
Welcome to High Score! Glad to see RGH members taking an interest here. I voted YES for your score, but here are some things to keep in mind:If NOT using an emulator
For example, we see your TMNT2 score of 160 points in this picture; however, we do NOT see the turtles or the game's title anywhere. If somebody living under a rock had no idea what the Ninja Turtles or Ninja Turtles games are, then they wouldn't know what game you were playing here.Remember, you can always submit more than one video and/or more than one picture when you submit evidence. So for this score, you could have submitted a close-up of your score (which you did), and you could have also submitted a picture showing the whole TV screen so people can see the game itself.
Thanks! Even after all these years, I feel like there's always room for improvement.
I did not edit the CPU's playbook, but it would have been even easier if I had.It's a shame the NES version didn't have trades or drafts where you could draft your team from scratch. I've always wanted a league where every team is human-controlled; unfortunately, not enough of my friends care for this game to make it a reality. Just a small handful of us playing it all these years.
You and Omar can have your little discussion in the discussion forums or on each other's profiles. No need to turn other peoples' score pages into a messy cluster.
Due to Windows Movie Maker having a 1-hour limit, I had to pause as I approached the limit. The top video is video 1. Then below it is video 2, and below that is a picture of the final score.Video 1 ends: 546,700 ptsVideo 2 begins: 546,700 ptsVideo 2 ends: 560,100 pts
I've been playing this game since back in the day when it first came out, so I'm familiar with what you're talking about. Too many people talk about Bo Jackson as if he were the only player in this game (young hipsters who know nothing of Okoye or Fulcher).I rushed for 4,000 yards in undefeated seasons with Marino and Grogan while today's young hipsters say it's impossible.
Running with Bo Jackson's been done to death. When you want to try something different, a little Montana-to-Rice is always fun.
YES vote from me.For those reviewing the video: if it were skill 1, you wouldn't see the birds.
Although I vouched for you and your pic that this is indeed Mushroom Gorge, you need to do a better job with the pics to prove the tracks. Not everybody on the site has a Wii or has played Mario Kart Wii.
Try shooting at 45-degree angles as much as possible. It makes it easier for you to decide whether to zig or zag quickly and you'll be a better shot that way.With enough practice, you can conquer the first 3 difficulties. Skill 4 will always be difficult, however (damn Dragon Room). On Skill 4, you have it made if you reach level 9, because level 9 and beyond is just the third level looping over and over again (no more Dragon Room).
Muy bueno. A vote of YES from me. Estudio Espanol por 6 anos, pero no hablo Espanol (solamente poco).
Baz, I can vouch for the player that this track in the picture is indeed Mushroom Gorge; I have this game on the Wii.
First million happens moments after the 15:34 mark; second million happens moments after the 25:18 mark.
Voted yes a moment ago.
