    I remember it was about 2 machines over from Defender and Robotron in the same row.
    This game is one of my first memories of continued game play with additional coinage.

    Played on my ArcadeSD.
    This was actually the first time I've ever made it to the challenge course. New PB!

    Got a sneak preview of how to get past those stupid boulders on Saturday at NW courtesy of @Barra. Seeing and then repeating is a completely different thing with me on lots of games, might fire it up and give it a shot. I'm sure when the tips start coming from the better guys on this game, a lot of you (me too hopefully) will get past that stage which means you won't ever score more than around 75k max.

    Where's the dislike button?

    As John said I played a couple credits of this at Netherworld, but it was set to the wrong settings (10k, 30k and 50k bonus lives I think?)

    I think it's a case of each to their own.

    I'm not great at MP - but I do love the game. Crush Roller aka Make Trax is absolute rubbish and belongs in landfill with all those horrible Atari E.T. games IMO but plenty of guys love it on the MGL.

    At the end of the day, what is important is that I am buggered after a great arcade event at Netherworld on games that still work even when they are well over 30 years old - yet CD's that were first mass produced in the late 80's (???) for music no longer play, LED monitors won't last 30+ years like the old CRT screens that we still use. Like or loathe - this is a great hobby and I'm happy I was alive to be a part of it.

    Either way you looking at it, I won't win this MGL or any other for that matter - and I have no issue with that. Just have fun playing, and finding the occasional new game that I've nver heard of.

    Anyway, I'm buggered from a 11pm+ bed time on Thurs, and then 3 more 1am+ bed times and too many drinks with a great bunch different arcade guys at the NW event this weekend. Australia is buggered in the cricket in India - so I'm gonna make this my last post for the night, crawl into bed, get into the fetal position, put my thumb in my mouth and suck on it and cry myself to sleep over us not beating those Indian cheats

    Exactly! Bank Panic is actually the best "new" find for me since discovering the MGL.
