    Games are picked through a random generator from the list compiled in the MGL 9 thread. To have your games included in the pick you need to submit a score. You can add to this list at any time.
    Remember to make your score valid you need to post your score in the subject line and don't forget your screen shot, any troubles let me know.
    Mid week bonus of 10 MGL points are awarded to the highest submitted score as at Midnight Wednesday. The highest submitted score at the end of the MGL week will receive 100 MGL points.

    Your scores need to be in by next Monday 21st of September BY 8PM (NSW daylight savings time).

    I like this game as well, controls/movement are smooth, graphics are great ( for the time ) bonus's a plenty, no room for mistakes and a good challenge.

    Get into it peoples At least its a platform game for all that were hanging for one

    I'm thinking for the next MGL, only people who played the previous can nominate games for the next MGL and limit it to say 5 games

    Other MGL'er thoughts ?

    I played this at a corner shop as a kid. Quickly became a favourite.

    I really must tip my hat to you guys in reverence. I'm clearly nowhere near as hardcore a retro gamer, that I would welcome the prospect of playing Circus Charlie for a whole week

    All in good fun. 200k high score ? Good Lord
