Hadn't played this for ages and got right back into it last night. Anyone know how many "sheilds" per level you get??

By the way Amy nice discription on how to play...."shoot things" :lol

I don't think there is a set number of shields per round it just takes a few seconds to recharge - maybe 4-5 - but has unlimited uses per round?

I enjoy playing this game too but not sure how good I am in relation to others - will be interesting to find out - or embarrassing LOL.

Cheers

usually i find embarrasing, but i got a bit over 7000 last night. With a bit more practise hopefully more. the mother ships are tough with slow fire power. mashing the button endlessly doesn't seem to make it fire more quickly...hehe

The 200,000 isn't a bug, it's a gen-yoo-ine bonus. If you can get it, good luck to ya, I reckon.

Hey all,

Only joined Aussie Arcade recently and to my joy, found the gaming league. Great idea :) I have one of those xxxx-in-1 systems in a cab.

Here's my first posted score, 11,610 for Phoenix. The game definitely gets a fair bit tougher tougher from screen 11 onwards. The third saucer is tough. Never made the 4th saucer...

Welcome,
Have you ever got the 200,000 bonus in Phoenix

I never knew about the secret bonus in Phoenix. Googled it just now though. Will give that a shot ;) Sounds easy but I bet it's not. Will give this game another shot with that tip, cheers.

I'd say anyone that can pull off that triple trick shot, will take out the Phoenix challenge...

200k bug/cheat rather than bonus, I was shown it in the early 80's.

Didn't think it could be exploited in MGL?

Classic game :cool:

Okay, so I managed to get the 200K bonus. If it is decided that it's not cool to do this in MGL, then put me down for my previous high of 28,220 which can also be seen it the same screenshot there.

So here's what happened - Did it completely by accident, didn't even read up on how to do it, just doing what the instructions said, "Shooting Things". I was on the 1st saucer level and 4 phoenix's came down attacking side by side. They reached the bottom and then all 4 proceeded back up the screen all flapping their wings as they do. I shifted across them, shooting, and I suppose I hit 3 of them in a row and was awarded the 200K. Cool!

Good luck players :p

I'm going for my hi score, to me the 200k trick :lol is a bug in the scoring.

But it seems most info available suggests it's a bonus. (Mame history file tells it a little better).

I prolly should of posted one of these midweek, I got it twice on one of em while I was on 215k, score went backward - some bonus :rolleyes

WR is only 987K - 'smoke me a kipper'

Playing some of my best phoenix, seems to happen when you play the same game for a while similar to when it would of been stuck in the Fish and Chip shop for weeks, no other option.
Couldn't get a 200,000 bonus anyway IMO it is a bug and shouldn't be included in the scores:p


Score :Edit update from 46,690

46,690 now thats a good ( Fair dinkum) score, well done, How many times completed?

Yeah I try to only use the shield as a last resort and then its only 50/50 unless you are ramming some low hugging enemies that keep crawling along the bottom. Pity you can't move once you activate the shield.

I'd agree it's the golden age of arcade gaming for sure. The early-mid 80s when playability was king but they still managed to break new ground with so many cool games.

wingtip - at least you can still shoot through the shield! But having said that I'm always either too late to press it when relying on it - ie sitting under a load of fire to get that last hit on the enemy saucer with the alien inside - and so I die in a hail of Xs, ^s and /s - heheh the debris makes me laugh every time :laugh: Still an awesome score mate :o

World record near on 1 million - holy f***!!!!

I found keeping the shield button depressed longer helped.
I had a few games on Galaxians inbetween games, but kept going for the shield button :lol

Hey Guys,

Just in regards to this 200K bonus/cheat/bug I just wanted to let you know why I decided to include it in the scoring even though I have never played the game.

From what I gather it is a trick you can do to get some extra points. I decided to include it because MGL has always been about playing the game "as it comes" and in this case the scoring bug comes with the game.

I apologise for not making a decision ealier, I have been sick the last week and haven't really been following the thread.

I also want to thank you all for your participation, it has been heaps of fun. Well done DKong for your comfortable win once again.

It's probably a good time to say that I don't think I'll be around to do the next MGL (whenever that may be). There are a few reasons for this but I won't bore you with details. Hopefully someone else may want to have a turn of being in charge and continue it on.

Thanks again Guys
Amy

DKong, SectionZ and foot can you please PM address details please.

That's cool by me Amy, I only really participated in one MGL, but I really enjoyed winning a trophy for gaming. Thanks for everything, enjoy your retro gaming in the future :)

Although my busy lifestyle prohibits me from playing as much as I would like to, I would still like to see some contests here.

There seems to be a waning interest in the current format, perhaps a game of the week contest with a score next to your avatar would suffice?

Well done DK on another win, next time we'll handicap you :D

Nice one SectionZ winning the last game to relegate me to third (again)

Big thanks to Amy for running the show :041:

You up for it next time DK?

Thanks Foot, and thanks Amy for all the time you have put into the MGL.

I don't mind doing the MGL, if Amy is not doing it anymore, will be a hard act to follow:)

Was thinking of a different setup ( slightly ) but will have to get input from fellow MGL'ers.

Will start a new thread when we/I have confirmation of who is doing it .
