      I had a few games of this a few months ago, and I completely and utterly suck at it

      I'll try and fire it up in a sec and post my starting score shortly. I don't expect to finish in the top 5 of this one

            Never played this in the arcade. Did play it on my Atari 800xl. It's been a long time since then and cant seem to remember the patterns apart from the first one and the key pattern. Anyway, heres my effort after my first few games. Have made it past the rope pattern second time around. Keep dying on the next pattern.

            I predict that the existing MGL record (about 40k) will fall again over the next few days

              I have a DKJR cab here at home so I'm pretty well practiced, but I just can't handle the level 4+ difficulty for any length of time. My cab has the bootleg romset though which is a tad easier than this brutal US set.

                  Never played this one. Classic game though and some big scores to contend with - MAME record on TG is 1,161,100 - arcade is 1,307,500 (with Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe in the top 3) Any chance of joining their ranks Kane? Is your cab legit for an arcade score?

                  Think I might try my luck at this and skip Bomb Jack. Don't reckon I've got what it takes to compete with you guys there.

                    My cab is just an aussie junker frankencab cocktail with a bootleg DKJR board, nothing even remotely legit.

                      Based on previous MGL Nintendo nominations from Kane I think he may well be the man to beat on this one Though so far, MGL rookies have been making their presence felt this tourney in a big way, which is great to see

                        Rookie about sums it up when it comes to this game for me :-/ Here is my first feeble attempt...

                        I think once i get the hang of how low birds are going to drop when they turn then it will make life a lot easier... Also I know it is early days, but how the hell do you get a big jump off the spring?

                            Its all about timing, hit the jump button again when spring is at its lowest.

                            My 2nd day effort below - 31,700. 2nd key/lock stage is a nightmare. Birds fly right to the bottom.
