  1. My 300k score only got 7th place in this contest. Look at the winning score if you want crazy. I don't even know how that's possible. http://archive.nes.science/nintendoage-forums/nintendoage.com/forum/messageview7cd5.html?catid=31&threadid=166058
  2. I've gotten over 300k in this game before but now I can't a decent score for the life of me. Once the ball starts bouncing around those three huge bumpers there's a good chance it will get thrown down the sides or between the flippers with nothing you can do about it. Once the game wants you to lose, you lose.
  3. I just have a small no frills Sanyo CRT. It doesn't even have stereo RCA inputs. But it's lasted for around 10 years now, and it was only around ten or twenty dollars from a yard sale.
  4. That's pretty funny. Our TVs have almost the exact same quality of picture.
  5. Yes! I finally won one this season. Black box games are not my strong suit compared to later NES games. And congrats to Tempest for almost beating my score. He had me worried.
  6. MAME on PC. The NES port is okay. I find that it's necessary to hold the change in direction in advance because of unresponsive controls.
  7. I reached track 7. I've gotten over 60k before. The AtariAge high score is pretty good and almost requires beating the game.
  8. I think you're more likely to get flipped when you're sandwiched between cars. They can get aggressive and try to flip you over in this way. Be sure to hit the brakes when in front of cars that are blocking you until there is a safe opening. EDIT: Okay, mostly they just try to force you off the road so you flip from hitting obstacles.
  9. One issue is that the control feels slow to respond. But the main issue is that it's extremely repetitive and gets old fast. You can tell that it's a very early title for the system.
  10. Ohhhh... Rad Racer. Nice to see a game that is actually good and not Urban Champion. 😄
  11. I'd much rather play Atari 2600 Donkey Kong than the truly pitiful Donkey Kong Jr. Sure it has more stages but they're all horrible.They shouldn't have even bothered porting DKjr if that was the best they could do.
  12. It's a review of the NES game so I don't know what the heck is going on. I left a message on the VGC message board but no reply yet.
