  • MGLXXXIX - Game 7 ~ Arabian (closes 2-Jun)





    Nominated by gamer: bigredbird

    ROM WolfMAME 0.106: arabian.



    Game Story:
    You play an adventurous Arabian prince and your goal is to rescue the princess from her palace. In your quest you will sail the seas, crawl in caves and fly magic carpets. Score points on the way for picking up the letters in "A-R-A-B-I-A-N" and get a bonus if they are collected in order. Use the 8-way joystick to jump, super-jump, walk, crawl or climb in all directions. Tap the Kick button to boot your enemies out of the way.

    Score Submissions:
    Please make a new post for each score you post, with your score as the first line of your post, along with a screen shot showing your score and initials. This game finishes Sunday 2 June 2019, 7pm Sydney time.

    Please make sure your settings are as above. No continues are allowed when submitting a score and must be played from the beginning of the game. No pausing. No auto fire allowed. No stitching of INP files with save states. Single player only. No cheats allowed.

    Games can be played at the arcade. You must ensure the arcade operator has the game at the MGL game settings for the submission to be valid.



    First and last time played in mid 2016 during MGL29.

    Now please watch how gamers played this game in the 80s. Gotta love the strategy of picking what you are worst at first.

    New PB by 9,950 but based on last time we played Arabian this won't be anywhere near enough.

    Day 1 so plenty of time to improve.

            FYI, "Carry Bowls To Next Life" was renamed to "Difficulty" between 0.123 & 0.124.

            Difficulty = Easy is the correctly translated setting... and it's default, so that makes things easier!

                This version is also alot easier than the Atari version, if you happen to find a real cabinet (at least in the US). On the Atari version, you can only fall a short distance before dying. This one you can fall all the way from the top and still live. Also, I don't know if it affects the difficulty of the game, but at some point, they fixed something that wasn't emulated right, and it fixed the giant bird flying across the top that drops eggs. (he doesn't appear in 106).
                edit: I think only 2 roc's start out on the 1st board. Since the giant one isn't dropping them, those are the only 2 you see in 106. On later versions, he drops lots of roc's while you're on that board.

                  Great feedback on the difference. Thanks. So we are playing the easier version. Cool.

                        Had a few goes at this for the first time last night. The whiff of Kangaroo is faintly detectable (Sun Electronics) from the scoring font to the wacky sound changing whenever you pull off a kick. The third section is proving pretty rough for me with keyboard at the moment; definitely need to practice that should I wish to improve. Way to go by the bird with the red feathers with the benchmark 100+ k score!

                        P.S: Cheers to [MENTION=9067]OOO[/MENTION] for the Starcade link - that set me off on some binge watching late last night. I've never really been exposed to that show before.

                          Day 3 of 17 ...

                          Here's the 1st scoreboard on Arabian ...



                          It will take some great video gaming skills to do well in this game. That's for sure ...

                            I think the last time I played this was in the MGL. Have I been playing MGL since 2016?
