I don't mind a game or two of R-Type from time to time, R-Type 2 seems about the same, quite tricky later on though.

Never played this. 1989 was a bit after my "arcade years", though I'm sure I played R-Type on the Amiga (and sucked badly at it)

Had a very quick game, the score was not even worth posting :redface

Looks like the weapon upgrades might be Terra Cresta-ish.

Will give this a bit of a go tomorrow. From my memory of the Amiga version, this is one of those never ending games - no rest of the hands as the level goes on... and on... and on... :)

Awesome, got one of my noms selected!! Thought I better post a score then to kick it off. Bloody tough game though, you are spot on Kane, once you got onto the 3rd level it gets a bit crazy :-/
Would love to beat my PB for this one (which isn't much higher than this score), so hopefully some of the AA talent here can spur me on to take it up a notch!

Stop picking on Fire_Power :P

Surely we can all agree that Crush Roller has been the suckiest of all games so far :lol

Not by a long shot, Radar Scope was voted by my kids as most likely to appear in FML

I thought that was the coolest game ever......or am i just getting old:lol Yeah that line about side scrolling shooters is a laff. Scramble beat it by about 7 years and must be one of the greatest/biggest impact side scrollers ever. So addictive, and used sound really well. That constant low pulsing fx...only scramble! But yes, you are getting old, join the club :)

Got past boss 1 :026:

Just checking... there was comment about using save states etc. to practice being a no no - are we allowed to use continues to practice? Couldn't be arsed going back to find the answer - no idea which of the games this was mentioned in :confused:

-----

Went and found the answer, it is okay... Thank god. Getting sick of getting all the way through level 1 only to get nailed within 10 secs on level 2 :lol

Yeah sounds like bullshit marketing more than a real description of the game. Agreed about Scramble, and what about Defender? I'm sure there are others.

:-/ Definitely not a common one back in the day, but I quite enjoy it. The variety of weapons makes it a bit more interesting. Definitely harder than the first one... I don't think I have ever got past the 3rd level so hopefully a few here can challenge and crack 200k

Playing around with my cab today - it's nearly finished after not touching it in months. Broke 100K on RType2 and I think I beat my Ladybug score too. Hopefully have my cab 95% complete and at my house by the weekend and I'll post the improved scores.

Got a fair bit further straight away using a joystick instead of the keyboard in this game.

Hey all

Just to let you know I'm starting up a new section on AA for non-mame related High Scores.

So pretty much any console, computer, etc whether by genuine hardware, or emulation. Same kind of thing, post a score with snapshot for verification. Hoping to eventually build it into a decent repository of high scores for a number of popular system formats, and to give people a reason to dust off and play their old consoles.

Looking at adding new systems as well like Playstation, Xbox, even Wii. Anything where you can play a score based game and post your best effort for others to chase and try to best.

Got my nearly completed cabinet at home now, will give this another bash tonight and a bit more tomorrow.

Just realised that I had the magstick in 4 way for this game - not a bad effort :D

Pelly

Well that's enough "rage quitting" for one weekend :-/ Hopefully I can crack the 200k over the next few days...

Finally cracked 200k! In the process made it past the 3rd boss which was good.. Unfortunately flew straight into a wall in the 4th level :redface

I like this game. 181900 is the highest I've got so far but I think I can learn that 3rd level a bit better.

Gonna be tough to beat Pelly though - 214,300 would be 1st place on Twin Galaxies :o ... of course only 3 scores have ever been submitted :lol but i suppose a world record is a world record :cool:

Not proving overly popular the old R-Type 2... maybe will get a bit more of a bash over the weekend..?

I've played this about 6-8 times now and I just couldn't put my finger on why I just don't enjoy this game. Then I realised....I've always really not liked horizontal shooters. I can't think of one I like :huh: I've managed to crack 100,000 and will work a little more on it. Started playing Scamble today. I've never cleared the first base LOL!

About 30k more than me, I can't stand games that shove you back to the start of the section when you die. When I die I want to start from where I died dam it!:realmad:

Loaded this up today, very Megadrive/90's shooter. Didn't get very far either, couldn't even break 50k :redface

Played NBA Jam Max Hangtime for a couple hours instead. Sabonis! I hate you.

Not much time to play today as I have a pin to pick up :D

Once again, you post a massive score! Well done.. Beating me at my own game too, was really hoping to take this one out. :(
Painting all afternoon so only might get a couple more cracks.... Got that 3rd Boss sussed now?

Keep getting stuck at this part, really hard to recover once you lose all your firepower.

300 off the default hiscore :rolleyes

So there are no extra men in this game:unsure

Gave it another good bash, but it is just the 3rd boss that is preventing me from big scores :( I can get to him quite often without dying now and dying and repeating will only ever get you mid to high 200k..
