    @BandontherRun. I was. :) I used to play Raiden at the local bowling alley in the early 90's. Loved the sequel as well. The music has always stayed with me; so stirring and epic. It was this game...

    I used to like playing Win95 tetris as a teenager for testing any newly bought album with.

    First goal achieved. Now I just need to learn better survival skills (I.E not collapsing and losing 3 pacs on one stage!)

    Might be slowly nearing my limit with this game; had four lives into level 6 and blew 'em all on trying to beat the red dragon. Some funky diagonal jumping in my...

    That's definitely a new PB for me. Would have been nice to get 100k, but all in good time I hope.

    Played this a little bit on the Namco Museum Pacman collection via steam. Always found the controls a bit tricky but it's a cool game that I'm happy to try and get...

    Those little square smiley faced pricks who come down and angle in appear to be the ones who kill me most. :)

    Bizarrely enough, figured out the game on the left by sheer luck. I think it's a Mat Mania.

    Another random "let's identify arcades in film" question!

    I was watching a cheesy 80's exploitation film called "Stripped to Kill" (1987) and had to pause it when I spotted this dude hunched over...

    It felt amazing to finally beat the Draconian. I confess there was fist-pumping. :D Not sure if I'll be able to repeat it though! Explored level 6, made it to the...

    Got him down to one bar but lost the battle of final blows. Grr! :092:

    I also tested out the C64 conversion this evening. Obviously it's simpler but the...

    Still struggling with the Draconian on level 5; but have at least taken a couple of bars off.

    The weapon upgrade made all the difference in finally beating level 4. Bit of a breakthrough run; made it to the dual wielding Draconian at the end of level 5 but...

    This is definitely one of the most jolly, manic vertical scrollers I've ever played. :) Nice score from Wan.

    Hey Aussie Arcaders

    It gives me great pleasure to announce the success of Arcadinator at conquering Cliff Reese's mighty 1.48 million world record on Rastan. Incredibly, he has managed twice...

    Wow, that's a pretty intense game! First time playing it - makes me immediately think of Warhawk on C64. I can clearly see the influence on that game design wise;...

    Had a reasonably smooth run and explored all of level 4 but lost the battle of jumps and wits with the pesky little boss.

    Edit:
    Looks like it's beers and games...

    Took out the Blue Dragon and got my first look at the 4th level. Played chasey with a witch and promptly died.

    Made it to the Blue Dragon for the first time but was summarily torched. There's definitely a gap of knowledge and experience emerging in the higher scores - it's...

    Got unceremoniously squashed by a boulder towards the end of level 3; turning my freshly armoured Barbarian into a tin can. :) Man, those boulders can be brutal.
