  1. Good stuff, that's progress! Now find the free ship in Round 8 ... here's a hint ... 👓 Yes maybe, but you are getting closer. Try to survive without shooting up everything, that might help ... 🆘
  2. A hint on that Round 4 free ship is it's in one of the bronze turrets in the centre of the screen. A big bug appears before that section, just to make it harder, and two tanks move sideways before it as well. I've always liked the taste of banana split ... LOL. Hi Wan, how about a story from your wild home town in Brazil ... did any of your parents play video games in the 80s? Ask them to find out ... 🕹️
  3. Good to see someone is interested in a throw back story. I really would like to encourage all you gamers out there to tell your stories and yarns as well. Come on guys and gals, just don't post scores, live a lot and tell a lot ... 🎺 Way back in 1985 I was walking on planet Earth. I discovered the most incredible universe of all in the arcades a decade earlier, but now in the funky 80s I walked past Westworld on George St in downtown Sydney. I looked in and set my eyes upon a strange new two player game, that looked so much better than Xevious. (What the hell does Exed Exes mean anyway?) I knew the arcade operator and with some smooth talking they gave me heaps of free credits. Then Con and I played doubles for hours on end trying to work out how to survive this really tough game. Over the years this game grew on me for the fantastic game engine, the very high difficulty of play, the physical challenge of wear and tear, and being able to execute. The game is merciless, the bugs and boss ships incredibly tough, and they build in greater numbers. Some vital tips are: 1. How many times has a big bug crashed into you? If they go brown they go kamikaze as well, which is much worse. So learn how they move and when to stop shooting them. 2. Know what's coming up. A surprise means your death, but it's no surprise to the game engine, if you know what I mean ... LOL. 3. Exercise your fingers and arms, no joke this game is hard wearing on the body. 4. The different Pow weapons are no different in firepower (how about that, where would you be in Raiden if you only had the single shitty shooter all the time? Well that's what you get in this one! But each Pow gives you a different range and the longer the better, plus I find the tri-shot seems to have a wider shot which is better to hit targets near your sides. 5. Learn to monitor several enemies at once so you can make the moves you need to make. In some areas, there can be 3-5 bugs real close to you, and you need to observe where they are all going to go, including the bullets in motion, and the expected bullets to be fired. Yes very tough to do, but doable ... it takes continual training and hours on the arcade floor. 6. There is a free ship hidden in a target that is a split banana in Round 4. Collect this and use a star if you need to. 7. Use your stars up by the end of the game, as in a way, they can save a ship being lost each time. 8. Know when the free ships are awarded so you can collect the stars. eg 50K, 100K, 250K, 500K, 750K ... up to 5 million, then it gets tougher ... 5.5m, 6.0m ... 9. Never give up, never surrender ... 😀 I hope this helps, especially any cats. So can someone have their turn and talk some arcade stuff about any games being played in the MGL ... 🏓 Cheers OOO
  4. 5,993,400 927 = 27-Sep ... played tonight before hitting the sack for some zeds. Arms and fingers are OK ... 🦾... LOL.
  5. Like stretching your arms and legs before you play basketball, or netball for the ladies, the warm up is important. No joke this game is very tiring to the arms and fingers, especially the right arm (or left for the lefties like Terence). And when you have a few games, it's several hours of play. Best to stretch between sessions and fortify the will with something ... 🥥

  8. In MAJOR breaking news, Michael Kibbey @kibbey from Australia, broke the 10 year World Record on Nibbler, with a score of 1 billion and 233 million, plus 22,350 points ... Michael's score was accepted overnight at Twin Galaxies. Congratulations Michael, that's a lot of snaking around on the arcade floor. It was a brilliant game of skill and endurance, after just over 50 hours of game play ... For those of you who are not aware, a movie was made called Man Vs Snake, about the world champions and competitors who played for the top score on Nibbler. Now Michael is the best Nibbler player in the world. Watch the movie if you get a chance ... and please click likes on this post if you want to congratulate Michael on this historic achievement. This may not be the end, for world supremacy on Nibbler ... 🐍

  13. I have a Seimitsu LS32-02 joystick in my arcade console (printed on the pcb). On your website you only have LS32-01. My LS32-02 has 2 "pins" in each corner of the pcb, and the photo of the LS32-01 on your site only shows 1 pin in each corner. Here is a reference to my stick design ... https://support.focusattack.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005204703-Adjusting-the-Seimitsu-LS-32-Subguide What is the difference if you know? Thanks
