JON !!

Hello fellow gamers:

Say hello to a good friend of mine, Jon, whom I've known for the past 20+ years.

His last PP score was done several years back for Mark Longridge on MAME 32 build 58, so this is his first foray into a WolfMAME submission for the title.

Congrats, Jon !!

Getting Closer !!

Hello fellow gamers: Up to 346,920 now at "Normal" difficulty. Same stumbling block stages...14 and then 18. Also realized that at "Normal", stage 16 has a nasty trap at the very beginning just like stage 18 on "Easy". A fire is immediately to the right of you as you start. So if you absent-mindedly...

Up to 319K

Hi Weehawk:

I just hit 319K on "Normal"...still would be a top MARP score if you believe the settings should be changed. I'll save the INP just in case. Let me know. Thansk !!

Robert

PS - it's at 101 so would not even count for the GEGOTW, I think

Now I Remember

Phil/all: This was the discussion that took place years back with former TG MAME referee Mark Longridge. TG occassionally makes strategic decisions to accept a lower-than-"Normal" setting for some titles, such as the Universal titles "Mr Do's Wild Ride" and also "Pandora's Palace". The logic was as ...

TG for PP

Hello everyone: TG actually has two (2) settings for this title...marathon and tournament. As I am only one of two (2) players with TG scores for this title, and as the other player as a matter of personal challenge did in fact play at even harder settings than what is designated for both variations...

This was from Memory

Hi Weehawk: I played enough of this title to write those few tidbits from memory. Practicing today, I reached a high of stage 14. Stage 12 is when things start to pick up pace, and stage 14 is the first tough stage due to the timing of the fireball's first appearance. Stage 18 is where it starts to ...

The Grapes, The Frog, The Dragon, The Skull and The Ledge

Hello fellow gamers: One cool trick in this game is not really a "trick" but rather a helpful hint. When you destroy a non-green enemy, you can get up to 1500 points. Three in a row will cause a bird to come out to drop some more grapes which can really help in a pinch. This aspect carries over to a...

To be Changed

Hi Sampras: I have asked my fellow TG referee to update the arcade dips to match what is on MAME. It should be 20K for the extra. The three (3) ships to start is correct. Truth be told the 20K for an extra does not invalidate the earlier score on the arcade platform, but all MAME scores submitted to...

Maybe This One Will Help ?

Hi Sampras/all: What the heck...it happened again so I'll post the 4th encounter of this as of yet unidentifiable glitch. Maybe with now four instances someone can piece the mystery together. This one occurs during the battle with the first wave of "Brains" at approx the 10K mark, plus I also earn t...

Happened Again, Diff Circumstances

Hi Weehawk: This is the third time now that I've been awarded a trio of extra ships for seemingly no apparent reason during gameplay...this time at the very beginning of the first "Suns" stage before I hit any of them. I'll post this enclosure for info purposes but will not submit. At this point, lo...

Happened Again in 2nd "Sun" Stage

Hi Weehawk: This time it gave me three ships very late into the game...the second "Sun" stage at approx 27K. Note that in this INP which I am not submitting, I also found the secret ship in the asteroid belt that gamer "Sampras" pointed out. Maybe now with two separate INP files to evaluate someone ...

Here's the Glitch

Hi Weehawk:

Thanks...I am adding the attachment here.

I see that gamer Sampras indicates one free life is possible. That's good news. Maybe this enclosure will lead to more being possible !!

The 22K is Good, the 25K May Not Be

Hi Weehawk: My earlier 22K score did not give me the extra three ships. Therefore I have no idea why in the higher performance it did. If you would like to see the glitch happen for yourself, let me know to which E-MAIL address to send and I will do so. Until then I will not submit that one to MARP ...

Question on my New INP

Hi Weehawk: I just played a run moments ago and something strange happened. About 2 inches from the end of the second asteroids belt, the game awarded me three (3) extra ships. I finished in excess of 25K but I am questioning whether this is a glitch or part of the game...I thought only one ship at ...
