  1. Seeing as it's almost the half-way point, I thought I'd provide an update:

     

    Time Pilot 154,700. 

    Frogger 11,260. Like Donkey Kong, Frogger is on my bucket list of games to master. I still have a ways to go.

    Ali Baba and 40 Thieves 17,900. This game is winning me over.

     

    Nothing for Grobda yet. I've played it a few times but have gotten frustrated at so often blowing myself up by shooting an enemy tank that's too close to me.

    Donkey Kong:  Best Arcade game ever made.

     

    Let the party begin...

    I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but this is probably my first time playing honest-to-God arcade Donkey Kong. I've played the NES version via the Wii store, the 2600 version and Crazy Kong which is almost a straight rip of the original. What I've learned so far? It's brutal. No wonder it's so highly contested for high scores -- doing well is a remarkable achievement.

  3. Seems like a lot of folks decided to skip this round. Too bad -- these were two great games. Boogie Wings took some getting used to but there is a refreshing sense of open gameplay you wouldn't expect from a horizontally-scrolling shooter. There is no clearly-patterned recipe for success -- you just have to keep experimenting (full disclosure: I still haven't beat any of the secondary levels). 


  4. Qix 17,906. Not sure how I'm doing worse on the arcade version than on the Atari 5200 with its awful controls, but that's where I'm at. 

    Boogie Wings 63,490. Okay, I'm starting to get a feel for the skyhook and what to do with it. Still don't feel like I'm making much progress though. There's so much background that my old eyes often have a problem figuring out where my man on the ground is. It's a good but extremely busy game; developer needed to lay off the coke.
