      This game has real memories for me, but not so much because I like playing it. It was at my local bowling alley BITD along with many others, one strange teen used to play it all the time and nothing else, one day I had a chat to him, and we became life long friends, he has moved away but is still a facebook friend and came to visit earlier this year.

      I will have a couple of games for old times sake, and that's great, but I'm not going to try for a PB, I think I got to about the fourth game once and the big boys hit me fast and hard.....bloody bogans.
      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

        I have fond memories of this game. It used to be one that popped up everywhere in my area (Shopping centre, corner shops, indoor soccer venue, indoor cricket venue) and hung around for years.
        My proud gaming memory would be the time that as a youngster while my brother played indoor cricket I decided to have a game of it (which wasn't unusual) and I sat down put my money in and started. A couple of older guys (young adults) came around the corner to walk over and I heard one of them say no to worry about it as someone was already playing, the other guy than said, "Yeah but he is only a little kid." to which the first guy replied, "Nah, that kid can play, we might as well go". Probably the only time in my my childhood that I knew someone recognised me as a gamer and the memory has stuck with me.

        The other great memory I still have of this game was when a mate put his money into a 10-Yard Fight machine and asked if I'd start the game off for him. I managed a touchdown off the kickoff (first time I'd ever done that) and we jumped around high fiving.

        Why did this machine get my coin when I was young (and still now if I come across it)? To me it was good value, for 20c I could get a good length of game out of my money (I never put any coins in any of these machines if they were set to 40c, I have never seen one more expensive than that).

        Not sure than anyone cares.... but I shared anyway

          but I can't remember how to maximise my score
          Running the ball in after a touchdown instead of kicking is extra points I think. I'm sure I used to be able to do this without any issue BITD, but I don't think I've ever managed it on MAME, I'm sure there is some little trick to it that someone will share after week 1.

          Still a nice score, without looking back at the last time we played I think you've already beaten my PB.

            The MGL aint just posting scores, otherwise it would be like watching computers with 100010101000 in base 10 all day ...
            Nice explanation, just goes to show 'that kid can play' eh? Including Pac-Land and many others I am sure.

            Bottom line ... let's hear it out there, in here ...


            Ask your friends to play in MGLXLII. Don't procrastinate, participate ...

              The only place I ever saw and played this was down at the Leumeah Tennis Club NSW back in the day. I had mates who played tennis in their teens and you could go into the family section of the club underage and they had this in a cocktail cab. One of my mates was awesome at this game. Me not so much but still okay. I seem to recall either a C64 or Amiga version I played as well.

              Never saw the game again until I discovered mame back in the 90's

              Disregard the higher scores as they are from previous comps

                Would be most helpful if my quarterback stopped throwing bullets and tried to lob it one in a while, maybe it wouldn't get intercepted you moron

                My most hated feature of this game is the time it takes for the bloody ref to run onto the field and blow his whistle.

                  This game for me is a mega expletive generator.
                  So frustrating

                        Yeh you can choose to kick for points, or try for a touchdown for extra points. There is also a third option, but I'll leave that one for week 2 Seasoned players would already know what it is - and I think we discussed it last time this game came up....

                                I thought I had time for a game... I was wrong... I had to leave this game at this point as I had to go out... I was looking good but am sure I will be able to improve anyway as long as I have time to play it.
