    [FINISHED] MGL 26 - Game 3 - Nibbler

    A classic fast maze game - this is the first game to support a billion point score.

    Rock-ola offered a free Nibbler machine to the first player to turn the game over by scoring a billion points, at MGL we offer fame and adoration for the highest scorers.

    Gameplay is simple and addictive, you have to clear each maze before the time runs out and not bite your own tail.

    Details:

    Rom:
    nibbler

    Dips:
    Lives: 3
    Pause at corners: On

    Score submissions into this thread, first line listing your score and include the screenshot. Submit as many scores as you want. Scores will close at 19:00 hrs, Sydney time, Sunday 20 September 2015.

    Lets follow the convention of previous MGLs and not publish any tips until the second week of gaming.

    Still no clues about if this is a popular or random game selection and how many or who nominated it.

    Never heard of it.
    Someone on here must like it. Better go and fire it up and take a look.

    ...edit
    ok, had a look now.
    Rock-Olas offer of a free machine for a billion points would have been pretty safe.
    No-one would be crazy enough to play this long enough to get a billion - and if you did I doubt you would want a free machine to play it again anyway.

    I think I used to play this way back on my old brick Nokia phone!

    Guess I've got to learn this bloody game now. Frustrating as #$%@. How the hell anyone can stand playing this for over 2 days straight is beyond my comprehension.

    Man this gets quick fast and torture on an 8-way, first time for me.

    Never swore so much at first attempts on a game.

    The billion point players make it look easy, even if you have some good patterns worked out it's not always easy to make the turns when you need to.

    Only played this about 2 or 3 times. I think I tried a few years ago when someone was trying for a record, had a go and thought Hmmmf. Game gets bloody hard bloody quick.

    I think it's pretty much patternable and once you reach the hardest setting it is just rinse and repeat. Way easier said than done though.

    Bugger, I thought that was the full movie. Anywhere you can watch it (legally) online? And is it worth paying for?

    Here is my obligatory first quick go...

    This seems very hard to control... even on 4-way...

    Which version are we playing? The version changed at some point. Rom NIBBLER.ZIP used to be revision 6, but now it's revision 9. The old NIBBLER.ZIP used to have background music, which was actually from a Pioneer Balloon PCB (which it was converted from), but when they switched that to it's own romset (NIBBLERP), they made revision 9 NIBBLER.ZIP. Not sure which MAME version that changed in, and it may not make a difference unless someone is good enough. I think the main difference is after wave 32, on revision 9, if you die, the dots reset...on revision 6 they don't. You can tell which revision you're playing by waiting for the Nibbler title screen to come up in attract mode, then hold the joystick down. Next to that blue JHU icon in the bottom left corner, the revision number will show.

    Sounds like it wont make a difference, so use whatever you've got. The version I play has background sounds that get pretty irritating.

    47,020 is my best so far
