This game is a horizontal and vertical scrolling shooter with four buttons that let you shoot in four different directions. In addition to shooting enemies, you can drive your ship through an "energy" pod that energizes your ship allowing you to crash into enemies without being destroyed.(http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?game_id=7922)

:lol thought so, its funny though because it true. Not exactly a fun one player game and not a good choice for the MGL IMO.
Suppose I will have to see how far I can go on one coin

I've never played it but since I'm well on the way to being intox* too I might load it up tonight and give it a go.

But then I said similar about Wonderboy too and look what happened :laugh:

Really is a boring game, in 1P mode, is anyone playing:unsure
I played a couple of games and switched to some pinball.
Maybe we should have a midweek switch to another game:unsure

I've had a couple of games. Do you have to play as warrior ?

It maybe a little late now to change games, but I'd have no objection. I guess we should trim down that top 100 and chuck a few others in, as there are a few that are not too relevent or unemulatd or require specific controls etc. in the mix.

I agree, maybe a midweek switch is in order. Tones of classic games that havn't come up yet, what do you think Amy:confused:

Yes as one player unless you change your MAME config for this file, ie player 4 config to player 1.

No one can really get into this game by themselves unless they are quote

Its a coin sucking game that goes nowhere

No purpose here especially if you want to add health plus you can sit at the first doorway and just kill ghosts for ever.:boring:

Please change the game Amy:089:

We can can call it a hiccup in the MGL and pretend it never happened :)

ha ha is it really that horrible....im really curious, I might actually go play it.

Ill get back to you all.

we have played worse than this...seriously i was expecting something along the lines of asteroids crossed with rambo (well i couldnt think of anything worse).

But I do have really pretty buttons!!!! :)

Seeing as three people have asked though I will change the game tomorrow unless anyone objects before I do so.

Except if you have 2 rows of 3 like me - then it makes it confusing beyond belief :laugh:

Good score man:cool:

Cheers DK, I realized I wasn't fully utilizing the fire power. For example shooting up or down instead of just right on the side scrolling levels ;)

I remember playing this as a kid. Been away this weekend so I'll try and get a score up soonish

Can do better, this was on the keyboard and I should have redefined the keys as I kept getting the 'sticky key' message popping up when hitting the shift key :laugh:

Nice score DK

The competition was fierce for the top 3 spots this round, we where lucky to get away with any points at all....

Good Score DK, round 3 I notice, that damn Gond guy got me at the end of 2. I had a few more games but didn't improve, just how fast is it on round 3? The scrolling on round 2 is so quick the planes look stationary so what do they go backwards :lol

Round 3 is the same as round 1, but with the pace of round 2. I just had to make it up to the big scoring part, (the scramble looking part with all the buildings) thats where the score goes into overdrive, unfortunately my spaceship did as well and crashed:lol

Something weird happened with one of those swirling worm type things at the end of round 2, (when you are going vertical near the boss) I think I ran into it and it went red and 1060 came up:unsure

Oh didn't you realise you can run into them for a bonus up to 3 times :cool: the speech say's cease fire I think & theres some giggling SFX.
