Enjoy Golden Axe, because in the next round there is a really hard game ( at least for me)

Well said because I don't enjoy Hippodrome very much.  x)

 

Next round I'll predict Gravitar...

It was one of my guesses as well. It's often considered one of the hardest Atari games. However, I don't find the arcade version too bad, though I'm not saying it's easy. You, S.BAZ, and Youxia will probably still destroy me.

 

S.BAZ brought up a good point though. Are we using "Total Score" or "Strength" for Golden Axe? After looking around online, I've seen others using Strength for their score, so I'm now guessing that's probably the one to use.

My word, Hippodrome is painful.  It reminds me of a bad Genesis game or something.

Now that Emuparadise is no more, I have to be careful where I get my ROMs so no Golden Axe for me. Hippodrome is just awful, so I think I'll be skipping this round (or at best putting up a token score).

Thanks, Leto for sharing the roms!  CoolRom is working for me right now but there have been times when I can't make that site work for some reason.  (Then again, there was a time when I couldn't use Emuparadise either, before they took down the roms.)

The irony...brawlers are my favourite arcade genre, and I'm totally outscored here (77.5 so far in GA). And the less said about Hippodrome the better...it's not even that the game itself is poor - I just completely fail these days at this kind of fighter and can't stomach the gameplay.  Back in the 16-bit days I quite liked them though (but was never any good even then).

Sorry, just two buttons, I will publish a battle guide for every opponent, I considered myself an expert in this game

I'm wondering, the weapons you can buy, do those help you win?  They seem shorter so I don't like them.
