    Welcome to the MGL Vectrex. I have a Vectrex console as well - have you got the multi-game card where you throw dip switches to select games I think mine came from Poland or something... (ebay) playing vector games on a true vector monitor is pretty sweet, sure beats CRT or LCD.

    Ozstick I think has some decent robust Arcade controllers, as you say gamepads dont really cut it for these games, the analogue sticks bugger up a lot of games, mostly the 4-way games which we see a fair few of in the MGL's. Not sure if PC arcade sticks come in the switchable variety, my cab's joystick are 4/8 way switchable, but don't know about the usb type variety

    Thanks guys. My Vectrex has the original game carts, about 12 and a few controllers. Vector screens are so cool, something that no emulator can do justice. I turned it on the other day and.. it was 'weird' the gun drew in the middle for a bit then came right, but the text was upside down!

    F$%king frustrating game, would of been a money puller in the day, bloody grenades are worthless imo you sit back lobbing grenades and get slaughtered by grunts, best just to run and fire imo.

    Nearly like a top down Metal Slug in appearances, I feel similarities

    Those look great for the $!

    Yeh the grenades are arse! Have to have a perfect length throw for them to be any good, for me it's all run and gun.

    Its a pity there was not a bonus at the end of each level for amount of grenades hoarded ( say 500 pts first level then increasing by 500 each level) , would of really added to the gameplay and a nice bonus factor, ie collecting them for bonus points

    Will crank this one up for the first time in ages tomorrow, should find a couple of hours for it, hope that's enough because I have a busy weekend coming up.

    Hey DKong, I played this at the bowling in the day, sure I remember getting to level 4, will see though.

    I found it to be a reasonably good value game, and I was a scrooge with my 20c.
    Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

    Bless the old bowling for stocking games Good luck on getting to level 4 I died with one grunt left on level 3 It is a quick game anyway and can't believe it has not come up before in the MGL
