    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

      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

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

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

              Wanted: Pacman Cab Next Project: Skinny MAME Cab for Samfoot, thread soon, no really. I might even do one on my Pole Position cab!

                  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

                          I love Crush Roller. It's a game I've always regularly played on my cabs over the years

                            Got past boss 1

                            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

                            -----

                            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
