Title: MAME-What are you playing?
Post by: Saturn on October 31, 2015, 13:17:34 PM
[size=360]Strider[/size]

(http://s.emuparadise.org/MAME/flyers/strider.png)

Been playing this all morning. Never beat it back in the day and decided (for some odd reason) that today it was necessary. But it's a lot harder than I remember.. Just getting past the moving blocks at the end of level 2 was a nightmare.
I have Pugsy's cheats installed and hesitated using them early on but infinite lives became a must pretty quick.
Blows me away that that much skill or dexterity can be lost (I used to be good :113:

I haven't played anything in MAME in a while.  Strider does look like an awesome game, though.

Awesome! I used to love Paperboy. Last time I played it was on real hardware in 1986 while living in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Best year ever 8)
Haven't played Robocop in ages. Another great one to add to the list.
MAME freakin rocks

These bad boys have been getting the two page spread treatment in my coin op book all new features plus others which are a surprise , but in the mean time I've been hitting this one a great many goes is a classic from Konami

[align=center:2c1x7qic][size=180]Mystic Warriors[/size][/align:2c1x7qic]

A fantastic action ninja adventure with is in a between the Turtles and sunset riders and I highly recommend this game, very few people have played it on actual hardware I was lucky myself too back in 1993, so check it out.

Played Mystic Warriors for a while today. LOVING the game!
Can't get Alien vs Predator to work in Ubuntu (or this version of MAME) and that's a real downer but there's plenty of others to fill the void. 8)

Playing Rastan after being reminded of it in another thread. LOVE this game. :P On the 2nd stage I had my character running up and down the pile of tires annihilating everyone. Awesome games!
Had a little trouble getting Caliber Fifty going. Think I need to map some more keys for direction. From what I saw, this should be a good go-to game for the list :113:

Thanks Greyfox! Will check these out asap.
Ninja Gaiden on NES was the worst game in my personal history as the 'knock back' when getting hit made me so mad back in the day.  :113:)

Yes! Just got Alien Vs Predator up and running in MAME for Ubuntu 64 bit. Didn't have the qsound file ???

Just DESTROYED this awesome game... (with the help of cheats(http://i1308.photobucket.com/albums/s603/SaturnRVG/Misc/Emoticons/tongue_zpsgfwfalkc.png))

Been playing Rastan at work most of the day. My all-time favorite game :38:

(http://i1308.photobucket.com/albums/s603/SaturnRVG/Misc/Rastan_zpsf0igi0ke.png)

Edit;
All time favorite game would actually be a toss-up between Rastan and Pitfall II Lost Caverns for the Atari 2600 :67:

that's some arcade action going on there, will dig this bad boy out and give it a blast, I'm playing a fair amount of obscure arcade games at the moment for inclusion in the coin-op book, so working hard in making these super awesome in presentation.

one I can mention is a great under rated classic "Oscar psycho Nics" , tough as nails and had a massive influence on the creation of a famous Commodore Amiga game, see if you can guess when you check it out.

Playing Oscar psycho Nics right now. This game is awesome but HARD 8)
Thanks for the heads up on it-as for which Commodore Amiga game it resembles, I have no idea. Never owned or played one.
What game is it?
Title: Re: MAME-What are you playing?
Post by: Greyfox on May 03, 2016, 11:45:55 AM
This Arcade game was the foundations for a classic run'n'gun plat former action title from German software house "Factor 5" published by "Rainbow Arts" on the Commodore 64, Commodore Amiga and Atari ST machine back in 1990 and went under the title of "Turrican" if you google a video of Turrican you can clearly see they massively reproduced Oscar in this game, and has some amazing music and graphics for a machine that what essentially a home computer doing out of the arcade quality style games.

Looking at some of the screens above, i do love Rastan but i can only get to a certain point early on then just get overwhelmed by enemies.

Been playing a lot of Green Beret, always get to the second level but then struggle. Now its crazy but i do really like Jailbreak in the arcade, but for the first time ever the other week i finally got to level 2 ! Crazy.

Its like Ghost n Goblins, i rarely get to the second level but i still love the game. But its crazy hard !

Again if anyone goes to Arcade Club (Near Bury) give me a shout. Great to play those original machines

Playing Osman. Had never heard of it until TrekMD posted a copycat games video in another thread. This was one of the games reviewed and is supposedly a ripoff of Strider. The similarities are uncanny, obviously, so I don't disagree but this one is fun too. Here's a pic toward the beginning of level 2.
An amazing gem tucked away :D
