    Extra-terrestrial harassment ?

    MGL 24 ? Game 5 ~ Gorf



    Nominated by AA legends: No legends were asked, just a random draw from a world famous list ?

    Game Story:
    The player controls a spaceship that must blast its way through several missions, each a different challenge. The game features a robotic speech synthesis that heckles the player during game play. You know, a bit like your partner. The player's spaceship is equipped with a Quark Laser. This allows the player to cancel a poorly aimed shot and fire another shot.

    Cool. Another game I've wanted to play for a while but never gotten around to it. Should be a good challenge

          Just had a few goes and could only manage ~5k. Now I've realised you can move UP

              If I hadn't read this post prior to playing I wouldn't have understood it at all. I lost my first two lives and then remembered reading the post, then I scores 6k without realising that moving forward while shooting made the bullets shoot further, now I have worked that out... well my score went backwards.

              This game hurts my eyes on level one and I can barely see the orange bullets coming at me.

                remember the name, don't think ive ever played it.

                had a quick look and got to the warp level , which reminded me of gyrus, a few of the levels reminded me of other games.

                pretty cool.

                They seem to go further if you don't shoot again

                  I thought it was because I was holding the fire button down.

                  Here's my opener, never seen or heard of this one before.
                  The first round is a pain, especially with my ageing eyesight.

                    Edit, must have got a bonus 100 after I died and hit the F12 key - scoreboard says 2,860 but this screen shot shows 2,760

                    First impressions: What a horrible game

                      For some strange reason I played a bit of this last year, it's a real jack of all trades master of none, manages to stuff up a number of classics rolled into one. But somehow the horrible speech and wonder of what would happen next (not much) suckered me into playing more than once, in fact I probably played a couple of sessions of about 5 games each time. That was just enough to keep it in my favourites list, and the fact I couldn't be bothered editing it back out
                      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

                        Does this game play glacially slowly or do I have some problem with my setup?

                          It's an old old classic. Shit game but still a classic.

                          I know on older mame rigs Gorf ran like shit. From memory it was CPU emulation or something possibly audio although samples were used for years

                          Cheers,

                            I'm actually liking this game quite a bit, most epic boss explosion ever!
