    I used to love this BITD at Timezone.
    I haven't had a lot of luck playing it with a non-diagonal joystick.

      Never played this other than a passing token here and there. I'm playing with arrow keys on a keyboard.

      So far, I tend to randomly jump off the grid for no apparent reason, even without pressure. I suspect I'll learn to not do this in time.

        Great game - this MGL has had the best array of games ever chosen, well done to nominators.

          I never played it at all BITD but I struggle using a joystick on my cab but using a keyboard instead helps. Last time this came up in MGL (MGL20), [MENTION=8526]John73[/MENTION] that helped by suggesting keyboard settings as per below (and it helps):

              Some improvement. Less random jumps off the grid for no reason.

              To humor myself, I looked up the WR on TG for mame and it's 11 mil. The arcade WR is 37 mil.

                      How long before John73 chimes in with a 300k score (294,470 was his winning score in MGL 20) ?

                          I'll have a shot at it shortly, but I haven't played this since the last MGL. I'd hazard a guess that some of the new USA/TG players that have joined in may well be able to kick my arse at this one.

                            Odd. I didn't see a score on that post either. I'm going to reset my computer. I'm sure it's probably just a connection glitch on my end?
