    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

      Never played this, and after a quick go, I got hammered pretty quickly. I think by '85 I was in my first job and spending all my money on beer instead of video games

      Really need to haul my cab inside, so I don't need to put on a beanie and gloves when I want to play it. Why doesn't the female of the species appreciate the timeless art that is a dirty great big upright Gottlieb Challenger cab enough, to allow it in the lounge room ? It's not that much to ask surely

          I spent the first game trying to figure out why it would only shoot left (who'd have thought I needed to use other buttons for shooting, Doh)

          Wanted: Pacman Cab Next Project: Skinny MAME Cab for Samfoot, thread soon, no really. I might even do one on my Pole Position cab!

            Looks a few people have not played this one before.
            One of the reasons I nominated is because it hardly ever gets any recognition , and I have found it a very enjoyable game in the past with a unique firing system and nice graphics for 1985.
            Most people would of played commando but not this and its sometimes called the sequel

            Get them 6 shooters a blazing <insert western theme music>

                    Plays a lot better once you remember to switch the joysticks back to 8 way.

                      Looking for some good western style music to play in the background. I love a good button thrashing but I'm not sure if my forearms can take more than a couple of games at a time - obviously out of practice.
