Two questions about two games..

Post by QRS » Fri Jan 19, 2001 12:30 pm

Well, I have two questions about two games:)
<p>

1.Crazy Kong:

<p>

I have already talked with Ben Jos on Irc a few times about this..
I remember when I played this game in the arcade that you could get
some kind of "rose" ors something when you jumped over a certain number of barrels on hte 25m stage. I have tried it on mame but I can´t see any "roses" at all.. Question: anyone that has seen this? On mame or on the real machine?

<p>

2.Marble Madness:

<p>

Once I have seen (in a game magazine I think) that you can acess a sectret level in Marble madness called "the water level" or likwise..
I may be wrong of course but I think I have seen it myself a long time ago or even tested it myself.. It´s also possible that I mix M.M up with "gyroscope" (c64 game) but I don´t think so..
It had something to do with making a long "jump" out from a ledge somwere on the first or second level I think.. I talked with Lordgaz about it but he had no knowledge about any sectret level.

<p>

Please tell me if you know anything about this, OR if those drugs I used in my youth makes me dreaming about unreal things:)

<p>

Anyway.. thanks for listening:=)

<p>

Regards

<p>

Never seen or heard of the CK 'roses' , but somewhere back in time, I
too heard of a secret level in MM. Never seen it , but probably read
about it somewhere. And that bit about a long jump off a ledge sort
of rings a bell.....?

<p>

As for the drugs , I`d be more worried about the ones your taking
nowadays....( aren`t the prices scandalous btw? :))

QRS, there is a secret level in MM, water level. Not Arcade version,
but some home system conversion(don't remember which/maybe all). I've
only seen a picture in net. That conversion had awful graphics. It
was a rumour that arcade version/original had it too, but I (as many
other)think that it's not true.

<p>

The trick to enter is(I read this somewhere): At level 1(practice)
jump into left side bonus numbers. Then you'll have to wait at exact
spot near numbers for a while, then you get into water level.

<p>

Maybe if you use enough drugs, you can find your own "secret
levels"...

wow thanks! At least the secret level is MM was not a dream!
<p>

and it certainly rings a bell when you are talking about the
waterlevel Tommi! well, I know for sure now I have seen the level,
but I don´t know if I ever played it on console, or any other version
than the arcade..I wonder were I have seen it then.. maybe it was on
the arcade after all..

<p>

About the "roses" in ckong: I think you got it when you jumped over 3
or more barrels in a row, and one of those had to be a dif kind of
barrel.. The version of ckong I played was the falcon (japan set1)
version. You didn´t get any points at all for the "rose" (except the
300 points or whatever for jumping over the barrels:) It just showed
up in the upper left corner I think OR maybe it was over the barrels
you jumped over.. I don´t remember..

<p>

anyway, anyone else who knows??

<p>

Regards

QRS, incase you didn't know, you might want to look at my Marble
tricks at tricks-section, funny things you can do with a trackball :)

The marble madness secret level was on the C64 and 8-bit Apple
versions of the game. It might be on the Amiga version (try it and
see!). It is certainly not in the Arcade original.
