    I did notice on level 6 ( the second pyramid/sphinx screen) the enemies are different. Set 2 gives you the silver diagonal bouncing ones but set 1 gives the black homing (I hate them) ones.
    It really ruins the way I do that pattern as I can loop around quickly and get up the bottom right hand side on Set 2 but set 1 it won't happen
    So there is a difference in the sets and probably more than I just noticed.
    So Set 1 it is.

    Thats right. Funny thing is, "YOU ARE LUCY" is what i remember from my arcade days? Maybe we should be playing the original arcade version

    Actually I was just having the same trouble on level 6 getting killed bottom right.
    Need to rethink that pattern...

    Best so far is around 500k hope to crack the mil

    Round 29, have managed nearly this score on round 17 didn't point push on this game and just went for some "free balling" or is that "free bombing" takes a bit of pressure off

    You are on course it is possible to get 1,000,000 on level 10 but that is with enemies set to hard I think as it releases 2 birds at the start giving you more "B" bonus's with the P best I ever did was just over 900,000.
    Plus you have to get the P when it is silver as it gives you 2000 points and X 5 is 10,000 right there and the P kill can net 50,000 points with X bonus right up and get all enemies

    Starting to get the hang of it, was completely useless the first night of practise though.

    Rapt that this game is up, one of my all time fav's.

    Had problems with the external hard drive that I had my mame files on, lost everything including the wife's photo's so haven't been able to play on the internet PC.

    Luckily I had also saved mame to an old PC that isn't connected to the net so playing on that. Pretty confident I'll get a bigger score (gunning for that hi score, just worried about how high Rat goes) so I'll wait until Monday to save a snap shot onto a zip drive & post it on here.




    This is the only game I got over 2 nil with, get to approx 1.5 - 1.8 mil regularly. Big thanks to this Youtube, gave me some good hints on patterns (hope this doesn't constitute cheating...). Must say the dude on here has an insane skill level, not idea what his DIP setting are for bird speed but worth checking out.....

    Did you also have a backup of the photos somewhere? if not I have a mate who is fairly handy with data recovery.

    I'm going to set aside a couple of hours to play Bomb Jack tonight, start worrying

    Found a couple of hours to play, had about 6 games and only really got in the zone once.

    Not enough for the record score...will it be enough for MGL X ?
