Oh yeah, this game is definitely a little on the weird side. Kind of a cross between PacMan and Berzerk, if you will. Lots of fun though.....

The points really start adding up as you go. With free men every 50 grand, you can count on some really high scores this week. If I were to guess, I'd say someone tops the chart with at least a 300,000 effort. :twisted:

Start your joysticks, gamers.

Well I am at 268,250 right now :)

Never played this one before but it reminds me of Dark Caverns on the 2600. The difficulty ramps pretty fast. I haven't made it past round 8 yet. I guess it just loops.

Ooh nice, I'd say this was the first game that I used some patterns and strategy. Now if only I can remember them...

And I think somewhere around half million the game stops giving out extra lives? not sure.

No, they don't give you an extra life starting at 250,000. :(

Yeah, there has got to be some strategic patterns involved in Eyes. I haven't formed any patterns yet as I have not played it quite enough to visualize the patterns. I've just been going on the fly. ;)

Wow, you can sure see the Nibbler DNA in this one. At least it doesn't have excruciatingly irritating background music.

Are you kidding me? The weird ass noises that game makes gives me the creeps! Worse than Nibblers.

Your better off turning the volume completely off for Eyes. The sound effects it spits out are completely unbearable. The eyes don't make a sound when they shoot, thus giving another reason to hit the mute button.

lol MAME Offender on the weird ass noises! It is a little creepy huh-but fitting with the strange eyes roaming around! I remember playing this game at a local convenience store called 4 Sons in the town I grew up in. They always had 2 games at any given time. I remember Tutankhamen, Mario Bros, Ice Climber, DK, DK Jr, and Eyes. Those are the only ones I call recall at this time, but Eyes was a game I never saw again.

247,540 I know I can do better, it's all a matter of being more patient & working my way up the board.

So close to MAME O.

I do have a wolfMAME question though. I forget how to take a screen shot. I have been hitting "Prt Scr" and dumping the image into paint and sometimes resizing them. How are you guys getting those cute .png files?

I'd try to get another score, but I dunno if I wanna play a game this dull.

I've been playing, but nothing better. Could this be the part where you start pulling away in the season standings? :P

A long way to go, we`re roughly at the halfway point now. I love how close it is, though.

Well, I clearly remember you used to kick my ass around the block on Kaboom!, Pressure Cooker, and Dolphin; apparently not much has changed in adulthood.
