    Game description:


    This is a four-stage space shoot-em-up game. Stage one is a familiar Galaxians-type scenario, with your ship facing off against a formation of super mosquito aliens that break off and dive at you. Completing this stage warps you to stages two through four, where your ship is positioned an inch or two above the bottom of a screen, just above a dotted blue line. This line serves no purpose during stage two's "hovering attackers", but during stages three and four "flying bones" and "rolling fire", the enemies drop Stick Aliens that look like little space soldiers. The Stick Aliens try to get behind the dotted line, where they patrol back and forth underneath your ship, trying to spear you from behind. The only way to get rid of them is to shoot the Killer King which randomly appears during the stage. Completing these three levels warps you back into space, to start the cycle over again.

      Those hi scores don't seem too big. Maybe we could see another WR on this one?

        Got to admit that I like this game. The pub my parents drank at from 79 to 82 in Melbourne (Summerhill Hotel on Plenty road) had a Ghostmuncher/Uniwars cocktail. It replaced Frogger. That pub had a lot of great early 80's pins and vids. Having said that I'm not great at it these days though I said similar about GnG.

          The MARP scores are a different story, and Rat has his name up there too I see...

                Don't think I've ever tried this one. Looks interesting though.

                Any secrets to it? May as well fill people in at the beginning hey?

                    Only time for one quick game tonight, just home from the cricket and wanted to post a "crap" starting score. Initial thoughts is that I will not be too good at this one

                        Yep this one, like Radar Scope is a cracker of a game. Great selection Rat. Turtles, followed by Uniwars - we are in MGL heaven!

                        I remember playing it in the arcade with my mate and without fail, everytime the "Oh Warp" screen came up we would look at each other and parrot the phrase "Oh Warp" and then laugh like hyenas. When I built my Mame cab I couldn't remember the name of the game so searched for a fair while to find it. Mate and I still play, recite the phrase and laugh 20 years on.

                          It would appear that I have peaked on day one of this game. Another 10 or so games and I can't even get 6000

                            That is brilliant, for me that's what the MGL/Mame does so well, relive those kind of memories. Nice One.

                              Not got any further today after another 20 or so games. The sprite detection when the ship is underneath you and trying to shove a spike up your arse is absolute terrible in this game Apart from that, it seems like fun so far, if a little frustrating at times.
