    Game Introduction

    You are an armoured, rocket-booted soldier, whose mission is to defend five planets against the evil empire. You run from left to right, shooting your way to the base at the end of each level, then tackle a left to right space ship stage.

    Pick up various power-up weapons and attack the end of level boss on each planet. After each space stage there is a spectacular finale. Firing constantly while moving forward is the best method. However, there is a bonus stage after you complete the five planets that is extremely difficult. It is best to avoid everything here whenever possible.

    Just throwing this out there. There is a major leech point on one of the planets. It's possible to max this thing out without finishing the game if you know how. I've never tried it myself but have seen it done on inp files.

    I said in the Hyper Olympic thread "knowing my luck the next game will be a leechfest." Looks like it's come true.

    Cheers

      The scoreboard on TG doesn't make any mention of point leeching on this game. I've never heard of it, nor played it (until I had a look today to get the DIP switch settings) so I can't really say if it should be allowed or not. I guess does this game have an end point if you aren't leeching?

        I guess there are leeching points in many games we will play, but its probably a good idea not to mention it too soon after a game has been posted discovery is the best policy for gamers that have never heard of, or played a particular game before.
        Just a suggestion.

        Exactly.
        Same as someone telling me a good movie has a twist in it, no matter what the movie is doing, im waiting/looking for the twist. A bit distracting imo.

            I don't know this game at all (although I hear good things) but from what I can see on MARP they set the extra lives to 20k & 80k ONLY so you can't run the timer out and die and repeat, maybe we should do that?

              Fair enough. So should I use what I know to score 9,999,999 kill this one off tonight and be thought of as an arsehole? Considering the Hyper Olympic joystick vs buttons argument I thought that I'd mention this right away. Won't happen again.

              Knowledge is power I guess.

                I played this in another comp a couple years back and leeching was a major issue. Rob bringing it up early saves some pain later I think and isn't such a bad thing.

                I'd +1 to what Kane suggested and use Marp settings.

                  No leeching, just a third attempt.
                  I don't know where to leech, I suppose everyone here has to be honest.

                    You can do whatever you want to play this game Rob, but at the end of the day you have let a gameplay tip out 19 mins into it being posted, and that is my issue. The discussion about hints and tips has been addressed before numerous times, and the consensus was to at least leave it a week. Get your 999,999,999 if you want, but just do it and leave a bit of mystery for us as to how you did it.

                    Don't get me wrong, you have my full respect as an awesome gamer, and im in awe of your scores on games Just let some of us make the discovery ourselves is all im saying.

                      For those who have never heard of this game, the slowdown is going to drive you crazy.

                        My 2cents...

                        If TG doesn't mention rules about points leeching, then I guess we accept it

                        If someone knows how to leech points, then it's up to them if they use it. I know some don't like point leeching - but back in the day, if I could make my 20cents last longer, then I would, it didn't detract from the game for myself.

                        Maybe the issue of leeching needs more discussion before the next MGL - the trouble being it is a grey area - some games it can ruin, other games (DK) it adds to the game.

                        After the controversy of Hyper Olympics (or Joystickgate as I call it) should we call for a vote on this right this very second? I'll leave this open until 7pm tomorrow night - do we change the DIPs to the suggested MARP settings?

                        I don't know that Rob necessarily let a gameplay tip out of the bag - he just mentioned that leeching was available. Chances of me finding it on my own would be limited - I'd need to see if done to do it, e.g. the jump/right button on the rivets stage of DK I would have never worked out in a million years. You could tell me that DK had places where you could leech and I still wouldn't have found it.

                            No worries, point taken and it won't happen again. Considering the complaining about leeching in my only other MGL (Time Pilot springs to mind) I figured I'd mention it was possible up front. I never specified the leeching point. If anyone finds it then good luck to them I guess. Even though I know where it is I can't be certain that I can exploit it as well as others have done IF I choose to.

                            As for me I guess this is a case of live and learn. I'll keep my trap shut in future.

                              Joystickgate I like it.

                              Lets remember this is for fun, sheep stations aren't up for grabs. Leeching in a comp for fun, it defeats the purpose.
