  1. Continuing on my streak of games I suck at... just to get on the board here. 42,000
  2. 80,060 Can't seem to figure this game out.
  3. Saw this game come up and realized I hadn't played it. I had heard it was crushingly difficult, and it did not disappoint. It makes me wonder how a game like this would have made any money in an 80s arcade. The gameplay is fun in concept, but constantly getting killed by super bats that fly 10x faster than you can move is very deflating. It's hard to picture myself continually paying for such punishment. 32,120
  4. Go Go Vertical Smile - 278,680 The "hey, you'll need this" gets a bit annoying but it's a pretty fun game. Pay attention to how the scoring works; there is a risk/reward system that enables you to rack up lots of points if you're willing to push your luck. The value of the items goes up for each one you grab on an excursion, but then resets on the next excursion. In other words, there are lots of points to be had by trying to string together as many items as you can without retreating back to safety.
  5. There are lots of "secret points" in this game, so if you want to play it, take a few minutes to watch a quick Youtube video to see where some of them are. It's been so long since I played I can't remember, myself.
  6. Small improvement, but doesn't move me in the standings. (haha, I was wearing my Brian Kuh "There's a potential Donkey Kong killscreen coming up" t-shirt, you can see his reflection in the monitor) 69,670
  7. Han, When the baddies grab you, to break free you have to shake the joystick back and forth almost like you’re playing Decathlon on Atari 2600. It usually works within 2 seconds or so.
  8. Ugh, that version blows. I think that was the last “new” game we ever got for 2600 before moving to 7800 (which, incidentally, has its own crappy version of Kung Fu).
  9. I'm on top for now, but I'm feeling like the universe wants to keep me down. Yesterday I had not one, but TWO MAME computers crap out on me in the span of an hour. The first one just stopped showing an image (probably a bad mobo or video adapter), and the second one suddenly froze and started making a hideous clanking sound from the harddrive and would not boot up. Oh, the joys of 10 year old computers. I took the harddrive out of the first computer and put it in the 2nd and surprisingly it actually booted into Windows after some churning, but now it is saying my copy of Windows is not activated. Here is the last score I squeezed out before the harddrive crash: 275,570
