Amidar Description

Your character moves on a screen full of boxes. Either collect dots or paint all the paths to fill in the boxes, avoiding the chasing Amidars and Trackers. A bonus screen appears after each completed level.

Game Introduction

The game has two sequences for each level. In the first sequence, you are a gorilla trying to draw boxes and you are being pursued by savages. During the second sequence, you play a paint roller trying to paint squares while being pursued by pigs.
Game Play

On even-numbered levels, your character is a gorilla; on odd-numbered levels, it is a paint roller and the Amidars are savages and pigs, respectively. Filling the four corner boxes of the screen gives you a short time to chase the Amidars and score extra points. You also have a jump button that causes all the enemies to jump, allowing you to escape from a close situation. You start with three "jumps" on every level. In between levels, there is a chance to earn 5000 bonus points. Here, a pig moves across the top of the screen. By pushing the jump button, the pig traces a path across the boxes towards the bottom of the screen. If the savage or pig reaches a bunch of bananas, the bonus is awarded. The game has infuriatingly catchy music.

Home from night shift, have not slept for 27hrs, can hardly focus, 92k first game :)

Not going to play again today, too frustrating not having the reflexes to get the banana.

Singing "you get no banana today today"

Hmmm, time for bed???? nahh not yet.

Couldn't help myself, I played again and got a score worthy of posting.

Edging up to about 30hrs no sleep now, so definitely last game today, and I have a marathon mountain bike race tomorrow morning, followed by a food and wine binge :) So no gaming tomorrow either, but might get another go on Monday sometime.

Broke 100k and a PB, oo-rah :)

But something tells me this game would be easier to play using directional arrows on a computer, rather than a joystick + mame cab..

Thats an awesome score, set MAME up on the sisters PC and using the NAMCO PS joystick , very arcadish , showed the 13 year old nephew how to set up an emulator using MALA he now has SNES, NES, Atari 2600 (bless him) and now working on PinMame. Letting him do it himself seems pretty switched on :)

Will have to get into a few more games, only got one bananna in that game, some big Amidar scores coming out, better to run towards the enemies in this game sometimes ;) I find as they always go to the first line

Yeah, I slapped my head when I *finally* realised that the enemies are slaves to the grid format! D'oh.. Certainly preserves your jump escapes when you can just sit there and wait for them to turn off away from you. Enjoying the game but not sure I'll have time for any more cracks at it, busy with interstate family today and away all day tomorrow. (picking up some cabs, wheeee)

Massive score Rat, nice one, can't really see that being trumped, anyone ?

Had a couple more games today, the best I could do with more sleep was 150k.

Fun and fair game, I find it much easier than Pacman.

Thanks to those who appreciated my score, but to be honest I am surprised that no-one has beaten it yet. I really think it's a fairly easy game that I play well, but not uber skilled.

Someone (being me) either needs to post his scores sooner or get footy practice shifted to any night other than Mondays.

Nice score DK

Well done DKong :)

WTF happened to Ramere? I had stupid posts come up from his facebook games, has he lost interest, surely not he has been dedicated and was wining, he must have lost his mind?

Now 1942........from memory i could get near a mill on this, something rings a bell about a 10mill bonus? maybe? too pissed to care ATM

I will get a chance to play a bit tomorrow, then for a couple of hours just before close, so i don't hold much hope.

I would like to see Ramere win anyway, I already have a trophy :)

If he plays, he will win. I'd like to see the winner win. Doesn't matter who it is though.

I just plain forgot to post, same with the other league. :redface

I would have came last in this one anyway, not my cup of tea.

Pretty happy with 1942 though, will give that top score a decent nudge

3rd game I've not posted a score in costing me 19 points, foot full of bullet holes.... :realmad:

10 mill bonus comes up after defeating the final ship, no chance of getting there on 1 credit....
