You play an Old West law enforcement "HERO!" who must protect a bank from robbers while allowing citizens to make their deposits. The screen scrolls left or right with three doors on-screen at a time with one fire button for each door. The background music for the game is "Dixie."

The game becomes crazy and harried as the timer is running out and robbers keep pouring in through the doors. It turns into a shooting gallery twitch exercise. For big points, wait until the robbers draw their guns before you shoot them. Bonus points are awarded for your average speed on the draw (in cases where enemy draws first), so shoot one robber with a quick-draw and shoot the rest unfairly (before they draw) for big bonus. (http://www.klov.com/game_detail.php?game_id=7012)








Games are picked through a random generator from the list compiled in the MGL 9 thread. To have your games included in the pick you need to submit a score. You can add to this list at any time.
Remember to make your score valid you need to post your score in the subject line and don't forget your screen shot, any troubles let me know.
Mid week bonus of 10 MGL points are awarded to the highest submitted score as at Midnight Wednesday. The highest submitted score at the end of the MGL week will receive 100 MGL points.
Your scores need to be in by next Monday 10th of August BY 8PM (NSW daylight savings time).
Thought I would put it up early as its the first game DKong

do not run this game in 133u1, (unless my compile was bad) its broken. Use official 133

not played this since my SMS2 was new. Going to be a time waster .... 8min game for ~100k. Didnt even know about the fair/unfair and active doors parts of the gui/game back then.

119300, not too flash really. Better than the 20k first round though

Used to really enjoy this in the Arcades, I think there was even a C64 version ?

It gets pretty manic though in later levels. You really develop a twitchy trigger finger. "Oh SORRY Mrs, didn't mean to shoot you" :D

I enjoy this game, very different, and the game length and difficulty seem fair.

I won't get to play again till Sunday, but hope to beat this score, I would like to crack 200k.

Great score Kane!!! Gotta be a trick to this one:D


Can't seem to find any tricks, bar shooting the masked man at the right time. Timing it to get big points can be a killer though.

Sometimes I get the 5000 or 3000 points for the masked man most times unfair (**** em, shoot em down :laugh:) or between 100-1000.

Starting to get around. 100,000 regularly now, upped my score to 125,300 (original score updated.

Liking the game the more I play it, bet if it was stuck in the local fish and chip shop (back in the 80's) most of us regular game players would be experts by the end of the month.

I reckon this game would of taken a fair bit of coin in it's time.
Good nomination ( who ever nominated it step forward :))

This is a PB for me on Bank Panic so I'm pretty happy about that. I reckon this is a really fun and tactical game, not to mention fairly nerve wracking :o

EDIT: Score update. Oh so close ;)
2nd Edit: Final score update. No more from me!

What a great line up of players this round!
I'd like to personaly thank each and every one of you MGL'ers for participating in the ULTIMATE GAMING COMPETITION in Australia and New Zealand!!!!!!

A BIG THANKS TO DK for organizing and moderating this comp in light of the truly awsome AMY, who ran it for so long. ( Hope you can join in at some stage amy???)

Well done lads n ladies.........may the best gamer be victorious:cool:

Yeah jammasized and saurik show us your State of origin:)

Done ;) ... can't seem to break 150k here atm. Knew there'd be some big scores this round.

One 'trick' may be to always try and keep a banker on the screen where possible (even running the clock down) to get multiple drops on him (Earlier levels have multiple bankers but a slower customer rate). Bonus 1000 points per drop on banker.

Running unfair kills after you hit a single bloke with a 0.00/0.01 should yield a decent point reward at the end of the first couple of rounds too. <--- untested.

I think i'm averaging around 80k by the start of the 4th atm, dunno how that compares. A few thoughts anyway.

I'd be interested to know what round you big scorers hit.

Not forgetting the progression of MGL PinnyParlour ( RIP) Ian his name was top bloke, miss him started it, Mad Mike took it on after that, then Amy piucked up the pieces and kept the family alive ( Amy is well respected in these parts we love her!). I have helped the progression( sounds like I did something haha) from my input from drunken suggestions over the years. And just like a good game(or wine) the MGL is developing into a good competition .
So onward an beyond MGL ers:p

got up to level 13 for this score....as for the ideas of shooting the first guy after he draws and then the rest as unfair...i found this has robbed you of the chance to get more points while in game. IMO if you shoot as late as possible you have the chance to earn 1000 points for each robber...when using the previous method it only gave me a bonus of 7K at the end of the level.

Felt i could acheive this bonus during game play so didnt use it in trying to acheive my current score...

Agree, you are better off just practicing and getting the timing right, for a 0:00 kill you can get up to 5k per dude killed.

It's a top game and it it gets real crazy after 200k. I've improved my initial score a tad but man, 341k is going to be hard to top. I might need more beer and more other things that go along with more beer :laugh:

Ah yeah that was him, thanks lol... How soon they forget.

Updated my score on previous post, 354,000. Previous 'Mammoth' scores not so mammoth now that 3 people are past 300k ? :D

400k is gettable. Had an avalanche of death at around 340k. God-damn gotta keep that nerve...

Dkong, in answer to your question, Bank Panic was one of my nominations. It was one of the games I played as a Teenager, that golden era of 1978-1985 when (IMO), all the best Arcade games came out.

Gosh that is showing my age now isn't it. :laugh:

Score updated in my initial post, Game over for me on this one. :p
