    nothing i'm happy to submit yet, but after a couple of quick games of repulse on the pc i just had an embarrassing lightbulb moment that might help me at least make the high score table

    its been a while since the cab was on so its a festival of windows updates this morning..

                Both these games are great. Can you run them for a month instead of two weeks please

                Dug out my laptop and found a gamepad and played a bit of both tonight now the world cup and wimbledon are over

                can't believe i've never played Robotron. i don't remember seeing a robotron machine in my local arcades aand I've heard it mentioned in pop culture and shown as a big part of arcade history... Ive got a CD where it's mentioned in a song by the beastie boys but somehow i never got around to playing it ever. what. had a few goes tonight and man it gets brutal quickly but i can see why it was so popular, heaps of fun and quick thinking/movement. want to get better.

                Never played repulse or heard of it but it's a fun shooter pretty basic the style and gfx reminds me of a million C64 shooters. but it has that one more go factor. i think i made it to the spinning disc things.

                hope to improve on both

                  I went to turn on my cabinet for the first time in ages but it won't boot. :-(

                  I don't have time to faff with it at the moment sadly.

                    Repulse is also known as Son of Phoenix, you might notice some of the enemy patterns are kind of like in the original Phoenix, and the player shield.

                        The shield was my lightbulb moment.. didn't help much.. if the guy who programmed the trajectories of the missiles at the start of scene 2 had appeared as a bond villain that's where the franchise would have ended.. have been enjoying it, nice mix of blasting and fu.. fu.. fu.. ooh that was close bullet dodging moments..

                            That's why i reckon game/s of the month might be better. Sometimes you don't get much of a chance to play in just two weeks if things are busy.
