ALL NEW BYOAC High Score Competition! Games played so far: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,156317.0.html


----------------------
Game Name : Sky Kid
ROM Name  = skykid
----------------------

Settings:
   Lives - 3, bonus life at 30k and 90k

Controls:   
    8 way joystick, 2 buttons (Fireloop/bomb)













A great fun game, features 40 levels of game play with increasing difficulty and longer missions, with multiple targets to bomb as you go along. Avoid on-coming enemy planes, ground fire and air-balloons. Nice feature in that if you are shot down you can hit the loop button repeatedly to get control back of the plane. Some hidden bonus features, such as shooting the three dancing girls that appear when you complete a mission they turn into flowers. Excellent music and the graphics are all in a cartoon style.

Happy Gaming!

I'll start. Missed most of the bomb targets, and hence the bonuses.

Also, FYI: there is NO BACKSPACE on the name entry, haha.

71590...

I don't understand how I react to this game.  Whenever I start playing, I think "oh man this is great!" and get all hyped to the music, then within like two or three plays I want to put my fist through my screen and I need a breather.

So do I like it or not?  I CAN'T TELL

Yes, my name is A.

Nope, I didn't like the game much to begin with, the "miss one bomb target and you can kiss your hiscore goodbye" concept isn't helping.

Haha I know what you mean j.fitzenr

I've played it about 10 times in a row and felt like digging a hole in the back garden for my machine.  :banghead:

My high score is 18,750 <-what, you really don't think I'd lie about that so I don't think I need to post the photo.  :laugh2:

I keep losing my bomb because I'm trying to fight the planes. I haven't made it past the second level  :duckhunt

 :lame:
I'm on my last life, best not try anything stupid
