    This has brought me back to emulation after a lull. So happy it exists and is working!

    Yup, tinker more than play. lol I'm still holding out hope for some pinball. Maybe those guys over at RetroArch can make a port of VisualPinball into their future builds.

    I read that too, and you're right. $5 (more than that $1.65) is worth it for more performance. The problem is, the device was never designed and intended to be used as a work force like tool. It wasn't meant to be a computer replacement. It was meant to be a cheap educational tool to allow students in like Elementary School to learn the basics of programming. People jumped on board in the masses once everybody got familiar and ideas started forming of it's potential. I get that we need more performance for our Retro needs, but that's not what it was designed for. There are other more costly solutions. Things with really good processors and tons of ram. I personally would like to see USB3 and GigaBit ethernet. But I'm cool with what is available at the cost. It's for kids, you know? I remember spending $189 on a graphing calculator for high school. This Pi could do circles around that thing for $35 bucks.

    You guys are just too good. I tried playing this a bit again on my day off yesterday, couldn't even make it to the 2nd stage still. Then for fun, I noticed the PC-Engine version is available over at RetroAchievements, so I play a bit on that. I got farther but still suck. The PCE version is different in that stage layout is different, there aren't nearly as many enemies on the screen, and it seems to run a little slower to let you dodge better. But like I said, I still suck. I think this game was also available on the NES. I'll have to check that one out too. Updated OP, DB, RSS.

    I thought about playing this the other day, since I haven't posted a score for it yet. But something came up just as I was about to and never got to. Hope to soon though! Thanks for the score! Updated OP, DB, RSS

    @rtkiii - I have 2 problems. #1, I'm not picky enough. I'd settle for anything, and dealers can pick up that vibe and will push for something I either don't want or don't need. #2, my anxiety blocks from me going "all in" and make a definitive decision. So at the end of the day, I'm no better off than I was when I started. It's going to end up with me settling on something just to resolve the issue, and getting stuck with something I'm not happy with. Until that day comes, I'm going to keep working and saving. @Mame Offender - Yeah I die too much to enjoy this game. I have no skills. I made it to the first level boss and died instantly. I don't like having 2 hits and death. There needs to be a bigger health bar I think. Good score though, thanks for keeping the competition exciting! Updated OP, DB, RSS

    It's true though. It's such a simple thing to do too. A quick backup of your SD card can really make you glad if you screw something up. Especially when playing around in an OS you're not familiar with. Saved me lots of times.

    I still hate this game. Tried playing it again recently, I can't make it very far in the game, maybe the 2nd or 3rd stage on a lucky day. Maybe perhaps some day. Updated OP, DB, RSS Ps, sorry rtkiii, looks like you lost your 10th place.
