Bullfight
A matador fights against a bull by waving his cape to lure the bull and then stab him with the sword. Sometimes two extra bulls enter the ring to make things more difficult.

I just don't get this one. My first 5 or so credits, I didn't score a single point.

A hard one to figure out. I recommend downloading an INP from TG/MARP and seeing the strategy.
I managed about 6k on the 2nd round before doing this, but have not had a go since

You can rest assured that when they play against me, they win.

I still remember I first learned of bullfighting with the classic Warner Brothers short, 'Bully for Bugs.' The reason it was made was to prove that bullfighting can truly be funny.

I made a YouTube video of me playing this one. I just can't really get into it. Not a bad game but bullfighting just doesn't interest me.

The trick is to "anger" the bull. It takes a bit to understand how to control the flag but if you can keep it in his face, he will speed up and you will get more points when you finally kill him. I usually get 6400. You can also run him into the walls for a few extra points using the flag. Mess around with it for a bit and you will see your points really climb.

Ah yes, I get it now.

Those Incredible Hulk bulls are giving me the willys, they seem to come right at you regardless...

Reached Level 7 with a piss poor bonus stage.

When the crowd is cheering, after a bull is killed, its sounds like when you hit an homerun on intellivision baseball.

@Patbb Good call on the INTV baseball! lol

First time ever playing this one. Starting to get the hang of it, I'll try to anger it & see if I can improve my bonus score. 13,800

I have the leaderboard updated. I will not be around to post the new HSC thread at noon EST so I thought I would give you guys a heads up. It will be Dig Dug 2. I may have time to get the thread set up before I leave this morning but unlikely. The ROM set I have for DD2 is digdug2o.

Hey B--

MAME-O is without Internet right now so I said I'd post his score for him. He sent me a photo text from his phone, so I saw it (not that I would doubt it in any case).

MAME Offender Bullfight-24500

Hope this is OK with you.
