    Amidar Description

    Your character moves on a screen full of boxes. Either collect dots or paint all the paths to fill in the boxes, avoiding the chasing Amidars and Trackers. A bonus screen appears after each completed level.

    Game Introduction

    The game has two sequences for each level. In the first sequence, you are a gorilla trying to draw boxes and you are being pursued by savages. During the second sequence, you play a paint roller trying to paint squares while being pursued by pigs.
    Game Play

    On even-numbered levels, your character is a gorilla; on odd-numbered levels, it is a paint roller and the Amidars are savages and pigs, respectively. Filling the four corner boxes of the screen gives you a short time to chase the Amidars and score extra points. You also have a jump button that causes all the enemies to jump, allowing you to escape from a close situation. You start with three "jumps" on every level. In between levels, there is a chance to earn 5000 bonus points. Here, a pig moves across the top of the screen. By pushing the jump button, the pig traces a path across the boxes towards the bottom of the screen. If the savage or pig reaches a bunch of bananas, the bonus is awarded. The game has infuriatingly catchy music.

                  Home from night shift, have not slept for 27hrs, can hardly focus, 92k first game

                  Not going to play again today, too frustrating not having the reflexes to get the banana.

                  Singing "you get no banana today today"

                  Hmmm, time for bed???? nahh not yet.
                  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

                    Couldn't help myself, I played again and got a score worthy of posting.

                    Edging up to about 30hrs no sleep now, so definitely last game today, and I have a marathon mountain bike race tomorrow morning, followed by a food and wine binge So no gaming tomorrow either, but might get another go on Monday sometime.

                        Broke 100k and a PB, oo-rah

                        But something tells me this game would be easier to play using directional arrows on a computer, rather than a joystick + mame cab..

                          Thats an awesome score, set MAME up on the sisters PC and using the NAMCO PS joystick , very arcadish , showed the 13 year old nephew how to set up an emulator using MALA he now has SNES, NES, Atari 2600 (bless him) and now working on PinMame. Letting him do it himself seems pretty switched on

                          Will have to get into a few more games, only got one bananna in that game, some big Amidar scores coming out, better to run towards the enemies in this game sometimes I find as they always go to the first line

                            Yeah, I slapped my head when I *finally* realised that the enemies are slaves to the grid format! D'oh.. Certainly preserves your jump escapes when you can just sit there and wait for them to turn off away from you. Enjoying the game but not sure I'll have time for any more cracks at it, busy with interstate family today and away all day tomorrow. (picking up some cabs, wheeee)

                            Massive score Rat, nice one, can't really see that being trumped, anyone ?
