    I've been back into Bagman recently. I hadn't really played this since way back in MGL 27.

    I set myself a target of clearing level 1.

    This is a tough game and it has taken many credits but I made it tonight. Twice!

    I was live streaming on Twitch at the time and the link is below if you would like to watch.

    Watched your Twitch game. That was fun. Also it's pretty amazing that most gamers jump off a cliff instead of letting those nasty chasers enjoy their dirty work. Then it's Ay yi yi ... ...

    Ask your friends to play in MGLXLI. Don't procrastinate, participate ...

    I'm always happy with a new PB - especially when it's a Mr. Do! PB!

    I've been playing this game a fair bit over the last couple of weeks.

    Had some tips from Dazzer and falcor yesterday while they were watching me play. There is always something to learn!

    I'm really happy with this new PB and have now set a target of breaking 200k on this game.

    I was attempting to beat some of my old TG scores this morning without success and in a moment of madness decided to have a crack at Mr Do on tournament settings.

    Medium difficulty, hard extra, hard special, 5 lives maximum. The game ends after your 5th death no matter how many lives you earn. I have a score on there from way back when of 191K. My 1st attempt today had a score in the 250K range after 5 lives with 2 left. I decided to play on and fell in a crumpled heap at around 270K. Even though I'm guessing the score after 5 lives would've been accepted I didn't submit it and have since recorded over the inp. After over an hour of clown related torture tonight so far my best is a low 160K.

    Should've quit while I was ahead this morning.

    At least the beers are going down well

    Now back to that evil clown I guess

    Edit: Got what I wanted although not as good as this morning's game. 213K. Will submit it tomorrow

    I hit my target today!

    New PB and 200k+ achieved on Mr. Do's Castle today.

    Finished with 208,760.

    Many thanks to falcor and especially to dazzer who stayed in my stream and watched me try over and over again and gave some tips on strategy on how to deal with the unicorns better and taught me a new technique to use involving switching the ladders.

    Twitch stream below if you want to see some unicorns get smashed.

    I noticed that TG have added a MAME track for Raiden 2 which I was pretty good at back in the day.

    Played it today for the first time in about 24 years and forgot how brutal it was!

    Best I can do after a few shots is 420,460. Just using an arcade stick attached to my desk (mashing the fire button isn't so comfortable with bent elbows) but hopefully I will have my MAME cab ready this weekend.

    Everything is coming together in the Castle!

    Smashed my PB by over 100k and finished with 316,660.

    Managed to get over 171k on my first life and picked up two extras with it.

    I've been playing a bit of Raiden lately, I can't remember how far I got back in the day but I do remember getting a 1CC on Raiden 2 on only one occasions (unsure of what dip-switch settings were)

    I got a score of 863,260 the other night which was enough for No1 on TG but only by about 30k points. I made a few mistakes though and figured I could probably improve.

    Managed to get half way through level 6 last night and then just before I died the game started to glitch and left a bunch of sprites on screen, the shadow from the big enemy plane as well as the medal pickups stayed on screen even after the game finished and went back to the title screen. I guess that's what MAME means when it says that game isn't perfect and may not run correctly.

    So anyway my final score was a significant impovement 1,270,800.

    One thing I noticed with this game is that if you use Player 1 side is that it is more difficult (probably why most of the scores on TG are done with Player 2) But when using P2 it will get more difficult if you use the blue lazer as I usually do for the level 3 boss and when you start in level 4 the enemy bullets are noticeably faster until you switch back to the red vulcan.
