  1. Tower of Rubble-86 Well, I'm taking a dive this week, ugh. Is no lie, I've actually focused mostly on 2600 for a good while now, and I do like to bounce around some, so I've spent too much time on other games, not enough on these, but all three turned out to be very playable games, to say the very least, and also, "not too bad", again, at the very least, the creators should all be proud as heck. Going on vacation next week, back Thursday-I have earned the patch score on Plaque Attack(barely), in the past, so mebbe I can at least put up a respectable score next week on something I already know. Truly, apologies to the authors for not being more actively involved this week(s), as I HAVE came to really appreciate homebrew efforts, but my gaming efforts are all over the place right now(Lol, practicing up on MAME Donkey Kong, to try to put a decent score on a real machine, on vacation!).

  3. Robot City-2253 Wish I had more time to put in this one, wound up quite fun!
  4. The End-32780 A genre I don't care for, BUT... This is a good game, it really is, only played it once, but it is def. one to play more.
  5. Gotta jump in here, is one of my niches! Super Monaco is great, but the Ayrton version is actually MUCH better, IMO-it takes forever to get your car back up to speed on Super Monaco, so sometimes it takes over a lap to get top speed for a good lap, which wastes time(I usually run time trials/fastest laps)(And I'm fast.). I actually do NOT like Mario Andretti racing, tho I have a Pal that likes it a lot-the sprint cars are ok, but the game is just incredibly cheap, cars coming out of nowhere in front of you, at a dead stop. Same buddy is also into Virtua Racing, but personally I HATE that game, I actually gave him my PAL copy, so I wouldn't even be tempted to play it(fast times are carrots dangling in front of me, I'm pretty stubborn)(and fast). Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge isn't too bad at all, really, it's very similar to SMGP and Ayrton, mostly the same(real F-1)tracks. I have one simply called Formula One, and it seems pretty good, but I haven't put a lot of time into it-you can't really see the elevation changes too much in SMGP and Ayrton, or Ferrari GPC, but the elevation makes Formula One LOOK nice, at least. I have Top Gear, but I've never played it, I assume it's about the same as the SNES versions-something to play, but meh. Overall, SMGP and Ayrton are my personal favorite 16 bit racers, but TBH I actually prefer the SNES library as a whole. I'd also suggest getting/having a three-button and a six button controller available-because of the D-pads being slightly different, some racers respond better/worse to one or the other, I promise, you can bounce out of gear too easily with the "wrong" controller, and no problems with the "right" one. Oh, yeah, also-gut it out. Use the manual transmission if you aren't already, the speed difference almost makes playing with automatic not really worth doing, you KNOW you aren't going as fast as possible. As a kid, manual transmissions(in games)scared the heck out of me, but it's not so bad after you get used to it. Sorry for the lengthy response, again, is a preferred niche for me, I have an entire shelf dedicated to mostly 16 bit racers! Have Fun!
  6. I second this, and wanna add to it- They feel sooo cheap, and flimsy, and they DO break, unfortunately. I play in the HSC here, am kinda laying up right now, lol, but the results speak for themselves, I'm a tad above average, I guess(still, nowhere NEAR some of my God-Like Friends!!!). I got stuck in a spot where I HAD to use the Flashback sticks once and quickly realized-I was better, period. They are looser, as mentioned, and do take some getting used to, but I've honestly pushed hard for high scores in my short time retro gaming, and the difference is clearly there, they respond fine, are easier on the hands, etc, etc, etc. Just don't ever, EVER play Dragster or Decathalon with one, as that's simply asking for trouble. Ya, you can find the flashback systems sometimes cheap enough just to buy them for the controllers, I've actually done that.
  7. Lol, Scramble is only fun on the Vectrex, and that's only because EVERYTHING is fun, on the Vectrex.
  8. Haha! I AM truly sorry, Guys, didn't mean to fade out on ya-keeping up here and the 2600 HSC proved a bit much(I'm actually falling behind there). Was a lot of fun playing along with you Guys-I appreciate it @fakecortex , you are tops, Man, I honestly think I really only had middling scores, but several of them were way better than I ever thought I could do on said games, that's what makes it fun!!! Particular big shout out to @Rickster8 from me-lol, I know I can be pretty "demanding"(time), but I def. have a new top 5 Gaming Bro now.
  9. Drooling, Man. I kinda REALLY want that, I'm the overall leader on the SNES over at Twin Galaxies, somehow(I don't really think I am good at the SNES...good at racing games tho, lol), but I won't even bug ya about it, lol, I couldn't even afford the shipping I'd want on that thing!!! Super Nice, tho, kinda hate to see you part with it, gotta be careful about regrets!
  10. 4820. Wanted to at least boot up the game, post a score, but this one just doesn't interest me, even losing out competitively for not trying. If this is a Super Cobra, regular Cobras must suck pretty bad. Last place? Sheesh. IDC.
  11. Mountain King-41,015 Waited till the last day on this one, enough of an improvement on my PB to submit elsewhere. Can't get to the top of the friggin Mountain, but spaced out finding treasures to leave sweet spots, and got lucky with some close flames. Avoided this because it sucks, but tbh, it really doesn't, it's not that bad at all.
  12. BMX-82790 Prolly could max this, but IDC, this is fine. Glad this can of worms was opened before I threw my line in...
  13. BMX-46,500 Done, I really need to play Mountain King, I just...don't want to.
  14. 28,250 on the Spikes Peak, prolly it for me, this game is SOOO bad. I have it, a double ender, with Ghost Manor, pretty neat to have, but this game... Ugh...
  15. California Games BMX-21320 Ah, I'm struggling to want to play the games this week, it's not them, I'm just sidetracked on other things, can't really get into them.
