    Dr Micro Description

    An early platform game in which the player must defeat a mad scientist, avoiding and destroying his evil creations in the process.

    The game consists of 3 single-screen levels :

    On the first the player must move from the left to the right of the screen, dropping dpown onto constantly moving metal pillars and shooting the enemies.

    On the second level, the player must steer a floating ball around the screen, killing as many enemies as possible. Once enough enemies have been killed, an exit will open which the player must enter. The floating ball gradually dimishes and the player will have to drop to the bottom of the screen several times to get a replacment ball.

    The final screen takes place on the scientist's production line; with machinary that must be carfully negotiated. Two large robots bar the route to the scientists and must be destroyed before the scientist can be reached.

    Thought I had never played this game before , but that first screen seems vaguely familiar.
    Seems to play OK on the keyboard, time to give it a go on the cab

      heehee this is one of my nominations

      Pretty basic little game, only three screens to learn but they are quite different. 2nd screen is my fave and there are lotsa bono's to be had for players who are looking.

      Expect to see some big scores on this one, given the talent in this comp I reckon someone will get a million or above - probably Fringert, the 'Rain Man' of retro video games ?

      Game on.

                Decent little game, weird at first but getting more coordinated now, don't know about a million though, it gets a bit fast further along...

                EDIT: OK, screenshots are of - 1 million part 45 - 2 million part 88 - part 100 - and death at part 104.

                  i had never heard of it before and happened to get a dr micro board in a pack of unworking boards.
                  i had a real hard time trying to find anything out about it over the net and started to think that the tag on it was wrong but then i found it on a small site in some corner of the net

                  i might go have to try find a mame version and have a game and see what its like

                        5,081,070 - part 208

                        It would be a marathon effort to get a million I agree - but it's definitely doable when you see what happens after set 5 (or 6, cant quite remember)

                        Edit: Score update. Mashed my previous best on this game, this MGL thing really is stretching me

                        2nd Edit: 2 million +

                        Final score update: Had the best game of my life on anything - crazy score that took almost 4 hours of play and left me in kind of a daze once I had finally lost my last man, at part 208.

                        I point pressed almost every time 2nd screen to a certain extent then bailed. Once I figure out how to get INP files working on my multi-game cab setup, am going to do it all again and submit it as Twimn Galaxies lists 1.2mill as their #1, and MARP lists 3.3mill as their #1. Could do it again I think without trouble.

                        So the pics:

                        1: 1st rollback, Part 41, 1,019,520
                        2: 2nd rollback, Part 78, 2,011,030
                        3. 3rd rollback, Part 119, 3,022,000
                        4. 4th rollback, Part 162, 4,007,020
                        5. 5th rollback, Part 204, 5,002,790
                        6. Death, part 208, 5,081,070

                        Dkong, I took heaps more pics of the score climbing as I went along, so if you want further verification over and above than these 6 'milestone' pics, just ask I'll send you the whole lot. Have pics of the Parts rolling back from 99 to 00 twice but this site only allows 6 max uploads.

                            A bit addictive this one, just realised I can move the platforms on level one <doh>, now getting stuck on level 2 point pushing
                            Maybe the first incarnation of a Mega man type of game
                            1 . The Dr Evil
                            2. he makes Robots
                            3. you have a little man fighting the Evil

                            We need more info on this game!!
                            Great game, love it, well nominated Jammasized, bonus midweek MGL hugs to you

                              Glad you're enjoying it! Dr Micro was a fave cocktail of mine back in the early 80's - a 'goto' machine when I was low on 20's as a high school wagger

                              Updated my score - I reckon I can push a million by next Monday - hopefully...

                              I agree there's not much info on this game at all on the net, KLOV has nothing which is pretty rare.

                              PS Dkong dont point press too much on the 2nd screen - you invariably lose more lives than it's worth, as you probably have found out, chasing those bonos! I usually point press the bee-jesus out of it the first time through, then only take a few of the animals for the rest of the time, just keep getting through the screens instead, those floating things can be nasty.

                              Hint: Once you have killed the scientist 5 times, you're in for a very pleasant surprise.
