The console and games are really hard to find and really expensive on eBay, I only played an emulated version of wizard of wor on a mame cabinet, I'd love to have the console but there's no way I could spend that much on it and I never come across them in the wild
Wizard of Wor is one of my favorite games for sure, first time I had heard of Wings of Wor I got excited thinking it was somehow connected, definitely not connected lol, but it doesnt dissapoint at all. I like the 2600 version of Wizard a lot, but the best one I ever played was the version made for the Bally Astrocade
is that actually a genuine cart or a repro?
Doesn't the flag on the progress bar mean you used the checkpoint? i'm skipping for now until i know for sure
Looks fun, like Kaboom! with a twist
yeah theres definitely a lot you can tweak, i always play default, i just figure its how the devs intended it to be played. this score is beatable, just practice and memorization, and once you get to the zone i got to the points really start recking up
Yes all settings were on default, thats an snes model 2
Yeah definitely start a discussion about it, let's see what everyone thinks
I think maybe the ATGames Genesis plug n play should probably have its own category
Sportin a name tag finally
as far as control its made beautifully, the jakks pacific plug n plays are almost always well made, im just not a fan of the majority of games on this one, there are others theyve made that have a better selection imo
How does it work? Is it that the joystick daisy chains onto a keypad and that part plugs into the 5200? I desperately need a working controller for my 5200
that was supposed to be a bunch of crying laughing face emojis, i guess the site can't read them, your post was hilarious
wow youve got the Wico controller for the 5200?
it was a lot cooler than anything i was expecting, great use of the paddle control, very unique
its built well, controls well, sounds okay, i just wish it had more shooters on it
Thanks, man.. The arcade version is so much harder than the 2600 version, like night and day, I played about ten times and this was my absolute best run..
I dont understand it, but i wanna play it..
Showed the pause screen, menu screen, and the console itself to prove its in the right category
that was poetry.
no whats ridiculous is that distance would even be a factor, are we going to have to start using measuring tapes? we all know the zapper can be fickle on what it picks up, why leave the result of your score up to the wims of a thirty year old wonky peripheral, i vote yes, great work man
Haha.. Balls in your court, only tip I've got is keep your mind focused on anything but what's going on in the game, stay locked in that trance and you can dodge spiders like Neo dodged bullets
They really are pretty. I only use the junior to conserve space, I've got my vader deck packed away in the closet in case I ever have more room, it's easily my favorite variant
Had to play again because I'm dumb and didn't document my last high score because I thought there wasn't a category for default, but after about 20 tries I ended up shattering my previous high score... sooo, happy accident? ????
Came across this game at the flea market today, never heard of it before, it's a pretty decent shmup, it starts off vertical scrolling with air and ground targets in the vein of Xevious, then level 2 goes to side scrolling and feels more like Gradius, I don't know what happens beyond that because I haven't been able to beat level 2 yet, cool game, pretty good music
I only use a genesis controller for the 2600... Or my super sweet Wico Command Control Trackball.. just another awesome part of my collection you'll see on my Instagram page, follow me @game_asylum <---(shameless plug)
damn... every game you post makes me wish i had a m.a.m.e. setup, love your videos
No idea why this is getting no votes... picture quality? its pretty easy to make out next to my initials
yeah its incredible, i have it on my 3DS, still want a reproduction cart for my NES tho
Awesome, thank you, I'll give it a try
....willing to share that tip ?
yeah the high score for this game was definitely acquired with an exploit, you just sit in one spot and keep killing the same enemy that respawns, but its technically not against the rules, i think there should be seperate categories though, the only other category for this game is "lowest score" which is cool but there should also be a "speed run" and a division for exploits/no exploits
Nope my bad, I just played some more tonight, I definitely made it through the cave stage last time, it's the snow level I died in that comes next, died in pretty much the same spot again tonight with a score of 120,670
Super hard game.. Awesome tho
eBay, shipped from Japan
My bad actually now I think it was amazon
Crazy score man, awesome, I can't even come close
Haha I'm not sure, this was my fourth or fifth run, I had done a pretty good job of keeping my power ups and clearing each screen, must've just killed more enemies I guess
Thanks man, yeah it's an awesome game, xevious with a three headed dragon lol I finally got dropped in the cave level, gets pretty rough
haha the intro to Arrow Flash is just straight up Diana Ross "you keep me hanging on" for like two bars.. youre like wth?? lol
definitely a great version for the NES, doesnt really feel like space invaders at all, its like galaga meets tempest
Yeah those Chance Stages are key, it's like Galaga.. Or really any game with a bonus stage I guess
Thanks! honestly i was trying to beat your score lol but it gets really tough around the third planet
lol brocan game, voted yes
i love that you have to flip the b&w switch on the console to bring up your map, it makes me feel like im piloting the millenium falcon flipping switches on the dash haha, plus it really factors into getting the fastest time possible
just for the record though the person who holds the high score on this game got voted legit with only a screenshot
fair enough, ill remove my expert/A atari scores until im able to show videos
and the only reason this score is getting no votes is because youre in the comments saying i need a video for this when i do not
all im saying is s.baz and zimer got their scores on this game voted legit the exact same way, the score rolls at 1,000,000 and the high score just shows the last highest score you had before it rolled, it differs depending on the amount of points the enemy that caused it to roll gives you, all im submitting is the high score shown in this picture, im not claiming the roled score so i dont see why its a problem
i havent posted the video yet, thats for a different score, this screenshot is for my score of 999,900. @s.baz did the exact same thing, on the exact same game.. did you give him a hard time too?
i love this game! nice score
the video is for my score of 1,205,200 the screen shot is sufficient for the score im submitting
I just wanted to show the main screen as well for anyone who isn't familiar with the high score screen on DK thank you tho, and thanks for the vote :) I don't think I'll be taking on Wiebe anytime soon hahah
Once I'm set up to really record properly I'll start using videos, I especially want to record for games where the score rolls, I should have higher scores submitted for both turmoil and 1942 but since the score rolls I pretty much just commit suicide right before the score rolls to get the highest score possible with just a screenshot as proof. Thanks for your input, and thanks for the welcome
No there's no difference on screen that I know of between expert and novice, I suppose I'll just have to start video taping everything to prove I'm not trying to cheat
Just the honor system, i never take my switches off of "A" it's not like it's a ridiculous score, it was the first time I played the game
What would you recommend I do in the future to prove my score, in a game you don't know anything about, is lugit?
I rolled the score and have video footage but haven't uploaded it yet so for now I'm just submitting the score of 999,990
i dont own this cabinet, its at digital press in clifton, NJ
