    MGL Mini-Comp Xmas 2015 - Amazing Mazes!

    • The 2015 Xmas Amazing Maze Off will kick off on Saturday 12-Dec-2015 and end at 7pm on Sunday 10-Jan-2016.



    • This is a 4 game mini-comp and all 4 games will be posted and start on this coming Saturday. Then it's GAME ON!



    I figured that since we've previously had SHMUP, King of Kong and Puck Off then I'd like to give mazes a go. Selection will be pick from a range of early-ish simple but compelling maze games. See the list below and vote for your 4 favourites.

    Mazes don't get much of a run in MGL compared to how many there are and there are some great games.

    Get your votes in to this thread by midnight Friday 11 Dec 2015

    Settings for the Amazing Mazes:

    1. Default DIP switches will be posted for every game. (Note NATO def and Thief need sound sample files)
    2. Points scoring will be the percentage system and everyone who submits a score will receive points.

    Rules for game selection:

    1. The Mazes will be selected from a supplied list - below.
    2. Every player can vote for 4 different mazes.
    3. It's fun, but if you vote please try and play - the time span hopefully allows every one to have a few games around family fun, excess eating, drinking and general merriment.
    4. Once you've voted you can't change your votes.
    5. After voting closes, the 4 games with the most votes will be played. In case of a tie of votes, the game will be randomly selected from that tie group.
    6. After votes are closed, the 4 games to be played will be made public immediately.
    This is a four week competition, so all games are up and you can play and improve your score on any game, any time.
    7. Post your score with screenshot into this thread. Normal MGL rules apply, no save states or pausing
    - it's a fun friendly comp with nothing but fame at stake.
    8. I've tried to exclude games that we've played recently or that are really well known, so I have deliberately omitted the following; Amadir, Anteater, Berzerker, Burger Time, Crush Roller, Lady Bug, Lode Runner, New Rally X, Nibbler, Pucman and all it's variants, and Turtles.
    9. All games are playable with one joystick and no more than two buttons.

    Everyone at AA is welcome to play in the MGL, the more the merrier.


    Hit KLOV.com, check MAME, find your favourite.

    General talk about what games may come up or what you may vote for is fine, as is slagging others votes or my general game selections and prediliction for mazes.

    The Amazing Mazes to select from are;

                I don't know any of these games, so I won't be voting.
                I will be playing what you guys pick though, so make them good ones.

                  You've got four days to test play and uncover your fav - get on to it try three quick games of each - they are simple easy games, they'll be on default settings. The more votes the better. And don't worry they're all great games!

                    Triple Punch looks exactly the same as Amidar. I only know Space Chaser from this list I think we played it as a Christmas special many MGL's back.

                    Do I have to submit a vote from this list ? Can I vote for something else

                      Close but no cigar. Amidar has jump not punch three times, corner blocks for hunt and kill cf punching, drop banana interlude screen. So quite different and Amadir has been played in MGL fairly recently as I recall.

                      I only know Space Chaser from this list I think we played it as a Christmas special many MGL's back.
                      Didn't recall Space Chaser being played , but at least there seem to be plenty on the list that you don't know - could be an eye opener.

                      Do I have to submit a vote from this list ?
                      No but better if you and everyone do

                      Can I vote for something else
                      No

                          Open vote into this thread is fine - no collusion tho

                          - - - Updated - - -

                          Ok, I'll kick the voting off. My picks are

                          Check Man - cool and a different strategy
                          Hot Shocker - a bit weird and a pretty rare game I've never seen
                          Mr TNT - like the fuses
                          NATO Defense - worth it just for comedy soundtrack

                              I Nominate (in no particular order)

                              Eggor (similar to Eyes but no leeching potential)
                              Mr TNT (Insert ACDC reference here)
                              Thief (Because all that use MAME are )
                              Triple Punch (Just because)
