Looping


Posted Image


Get ready to loop, climb and dive your way on a dangerous airborne mission unlike any other! While dodging rising air balloons, you must release the gate controls secured inside a flight terminal. Once you've opened the gates, test your flying accuracy through an unearthly maze ridden with menacing enemies. It takes a real pro to reach "THE END!" So here we go loop-the-loop!

I've played this a lot but always on skill 1. Skill 3 starts out a lot harder.

Hehe, you guys are doing pretty good at Looping now,... I was outs-landed, due to the fact
I couldn't save Shelley Duvall enough! In the last round '4', just didn't get her heart lol.
I do recall plenty of spinach eating...

My goal was to get out of the first round... I did better then I expected to, happy about that. :)

Good luck to yas', it's gonna be really tough now!

It took a while, but Im starting to get the hang of this quirky German-made game...

(I however, do not like how it cheats and just increments your flight counter by 1 for each "The End" you make, without giving me back a life (you know, an extra one!))

I know what you mean, I just tried to be in them all to show my support, and still hanging on in the NES/Coleco/VCS/INTV ones (probably out in the VCS, never got River Raid)... Love the competition, hope everyone else does as well.

Scoreboard updated. Wow - close game. I never thought I'd see jblenkle in last place (although I suspect there'll be a flurry of score submissions before the end of this round).
