    Scramble Description

    Player controls a ship that must infiltrate the five levels of the Scramble system and destroy the Base in the sixth. The first level has the player over a decidedly hilly terrain. ('decidedly hilly' arcade museum - who writes your descriptions ?) Player must dodge or destroy enemy missiles shot from the ground. The second level is inside a cavern. The quarters are not tight, but the swarms of enemy saucers make maneuvering difficult at best. The player exits the cavern and is assaulted by a storm of fireballs in the third level. The fireballs are fast and indestructible and must be manically dodged. The fourth, or City level flies the player over a large metropolis. Missiles fired at the player from the tops of buildings again become a threat. The fifth level sends the player into obnoxiously tight machine tunnels. Pilot error is the only though formidable enemy. The final level has the player make an attack run on the Base, defended only by its position in a deep valley. After the destruction of the Base, the player begins again. Gameplay is further complicated by the player's ship's consumption of fuel. If the player's ship runs out, it crashes into the ground below. Fuel is replenished by the destruction of the fuel tanks that liberally dot the ground during the levels. Each time the player destroys the Base, the ship's fuel consumption increases, dramatically increasing the challenge.

      Real method to the madness with Scramble. It will be interesting to see how far any Scramble noobs get in two weeks, I'd wager pretty much everyone here will be able to destroy the base at least once.

        Cool, I enjoy scramble, I hope to have a good crack at this one
        Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

          No threat from me taking out this one Don't mind this game, but I'm useless at it

          Two questions:

          1 How does blowing up a fuel supply add to the fuel of the ship?
          2 The fuel goes down so quick, is this the most fuel inefficient ship in the universe?



          Serious question. My screen resolution is really weird for this game - am I using an outdated ROM? Using .139 I think

                  I think if you look at the bottom right hand side of the screen shot it shows 5 bases.

                        Got to the first base and was so excited that I didn't know what to do and ran out of fuel and crashed

                          Had a great run on about my 5th go. Had a few really crap games too.

                          Scramble has got it all as far as I'm concerned! The shite you can sometimes find yourself in amongst the asteroid belt can be really fun.

                          Finally a game comes up this MGL that I can play, pity it's the last one \

                          Edit: what is it with the rash of stretchy pictures ?

                            My first crack at this game.... I think I died just before the first base...? How the hell do you get through those tight tunnels with all the fuel tanks?

                              Haven't made it through those tunnels either. I keep as far to the right as I can and then cut back to make the tight turns. Have got past a few tight bends but still keeping hitting walls every so often.

                              My effort - 25,380
