Something a little off the wall for round 12.  The score goes away after your last life so be sure to take note beforehand.

Another game I've never played!

 

I expect most will be playing on emulator or Everdrive.

This game gets stupid hard, but for the wrong reasons.  There's so much flicker when there are more than a few enemies on the screen I can't tell if I'm near an enemy's hit box or not.  Then there's the cheap instant deaths (which was the norm for the time though), and then there's just some enemy patterns I can't figure out.  Those skewer enemies decimated my life repeatedly.  The level layout is kind of questionable too in spots.  Still, not bad for a first shot.  I've never played this before.

I guess people aren't paying hundreds of dollars for the flawless gameplay. I still like the quirkiness of the concept and looking forward to giving it a try.

It's a cute game, but the levels are kind of short.  Definitely pushing the NES a bit.

I like this game. It's more challenging than expected.

 

Not worth the going price though. No game would be. But there is occasional heinous flicker and slowdown like the graphics are pushing the NES too hard.

You'll have to take my word for this.  I had about 89,000 and 3 lives in reserve when the damn game crashed on me.  Grrr....  I was actually doing well this time.

83000 - Those kebabs are a pain in the butt.

Yep that's where I lose it too.  The only other tough spot is the third bubble jump over the oil.

Is the fork/pogo stick ever worth getting? It seems more like a huge detriment. It's my experience that you're more likely to hurt yourself rather than the enemies.

I got to the final boss but I had one heart and zero lives.  The french fries and fish in the last area are tough!

You keep missing my score, lol. I got 83k.

 

Whoops, lol.  I was thinking earlier that it was odd that you hadn't posted anything yet.  I don't know why I kept scrolling past it.  Definitely wasn't on purpose.
