It's kind of funny, I actually play Agent 17 on the VideolandMUSH, because when I thought about apping him, I wanted to think of someone who wasn't as well known as, say, Mario, Sonic, Cloud, and those types of characters.

 

First score for now. I wish I could open up my NES and fix the damn connectors so I could play on real hardware. Or wait for my Yobo FC to come. (Yeah I've heard the bad reports about it, I don't care, as long as it plays majority of my games, it's all that matters!)

Had to stop after a couple of games because the music was grating my nerves! I don't have a camera handy tonight, so this one is by my word:

 

Stage 3 - 21500

 

Here is a text copy of the manual that gives point values, etc. As always, if someone has the manual and wouldn't mind scanning it, I would be forever grateful.

 

Cheers!

Not to go OT, but my Yobo, NEX and RetroCon all play a flawless Elevator Action. I love this game, maybe I'll get the time for a HS entry :cool:

25,950 A hard MFG

Oh it's not that bad. This was one of my most favorite games growing up. I haven't played that one in awaile, but I remember having a pretty decent score. Still have the system and the game, so the curiosity may have me playing it to see what i can do again.

And so, it turns out I do have this game on a mulit cart called Golden 250.

I wasn't willing to dowload the illegal ROM to play, but I will play the pirated cartridge. Figure that one out :|

 

So, my score so far is paltry. I had trouble taking a pic because the autoplay overwrites the score for some reason, so there is only a small window of opportunity there. I need to read the manual too, because I have no idea what's going on at all.

A criminal stealing packages or soemthing?

 

Score; 8800

This game is HARD. And CRAPPY. I find I am not liking the controls at all and evertyhing is so random, that I find it frustrating. Plus I suck. I can't seem to ever nab a screen shot either, since it changes so quickly.

So far the best I can do is 9250
