  1. Super Pac-Man I enjoyed a lot; it is much easier than any other Pac-Man game. That I first saw at either an expensive diner next to a golf course called "Stockpot" in Tigard, OR or any one of the arcades I frequented back in the day. I was able to do quite well at this until I got to the point I couldn't remember which keys opened which doors, and the Super Pac power was too brief. When Namco was working on Super Pac-Man it was supposed to be the first sequel to Pac-Man, but Bally/Midway didn't want to wait for them to finish. So when they caught wind of General Computer Corp.'s "Crazy Otto" they contacted them to make a full-fledged sequel. Namco gave their blessing.
  2. DRAGON'S LAIR MARIO BROS. TRACK & FIELD all arcade
  3. CRYSTAL CASTLES SPY HUNTER CROSSBOW all arcade
  4. The box for the Game Boy, with elements from the horror film Phantasm..
  5. It's made even more interesting with a Turbo controller trick (if you don't know it already): Press both B and A on turbo and fall off a ledge or cliff. You will shudder as Rygar continually tries to flick the weapon and jump, and somehow this makes him float slowly off the ledge/cliff. As long as he isn't hit on the way down he will reappear at the top of the screen. You can save yourself a TON of time in the game this way! Anyway, my last 3 games: CROSSBOW ELEVATOR ACTION GYRUSS all arcade
  6. From the game "Amazing Tater" comes Karl from Sling Blade with his appreciation of the French-fried version. He sure do like them French Fried pertaters mmm hmm...
  7. DISCS OF TRON MR. DO'S CASTLE FOOD FIGHT all arcade
  8. Power naps are bad-ass.

  9. I gotta say, I'm not too crazy about this game. I realize it's a very early entry in the NEO GEO library, and the graphics are quite impressive. But it's slow and maddeningly tough later in the game when every few steps you get accosted by a whole mess of guys, and the action is beyond repetitive. I do own it for my AES, which I picked up together at the PRGE a number of years back. I hope to get a game that I also have for my MVS so I can use a memory card between them!
  10. Major Havoc Arabian Congo Bongo all arcade
  11. Wow, that's frustrating about Major Havoc emulated in MAME.  The vector graphics are not all showing in the space maze stage.  I keep running into nothing!

      It's much better in an old version of MAME.  It'll do; thanks for the suggestions/well wishes!

      I'm surprised this isn't working on ADVMAME.  I've got it working on MAME2010, but it's not perfect, though still playable.

      I never really played Major Havoc (just a few times), but it is included in the Atari's Greatest Hits collection on the PC/PS 2/Android. Perhaps the emulation in one of those versions may be better.  

       

      I can say that the vector game Space Duel (one of my all-time favourites) works just fine. 

  12. Donkey Kong 3 Journey Dig Dug all arcade
  13. Every time I go through an automatic sliding door I think of the opening for GET SMART.
