The game has 4-way controls.



4-way diagonal controls.



Man, do I hate 4-way maze games in which the hero keeps running in one direction until he bumps into something. Apart from that, this game is kinda nice.

121,400. Two days into the challenge and I'm stuck already. Can't get past round 9, most of the time I kick the bucket in round 7 or 8.

4-way diagonal. That may be keeping many away....not that attendance has been high lately. That's a good score. I may have scored half that some years ago. 23000 here.

Shhhh, nobody tell yamatetsu that a 4-way non-diagonal is just fine & looks as if it's the intended control configuration...well, nevermind, he's just going to beat us all anyway...

Fun game.
Crystal Castles + Pac-Man + Targ

36,700

Nope, 4-way controls are not fine. I don't have a dedicated 4-way stick, so the cabs are out, the 360 gamepad sucks for this, so I had to resort to using a keyboard. I can't count how many fonking times I have died because the bugger didn't go where I wanted him to. If I play these games too long, my neighbors know that I'm at it again, what with all the cursing and yelling.

This game doesn't suck as much as Wizard of Wor or Pac-Man, but I wouldn't play this if I didn't have to.

And yes, I'm going to beat you anyway  ;D

@yametetsu: I like this game, and I wouldn't go to the lengths you have. It's a cool game, but difficult controller-wise even with a diagonal stick. I have yet to play again....

The game has it's moments, but it would be far better without the control issues.

180,000. yamatetsu's high score has been beaten. My work here is done.

Broke my record. On the first life.



New high score. 266,500.



This puts me in second place both on MARP and Twin Galaxies.

Nah, the Twin galaxies score is at about 330k I think, the MARP one is 418k. My score is so high because I got an incredible shot killing all the Robonoids (6 or 7) ang getting a huge bonus for that. I might be able to get a higher score in time, but frankly, I still dislike the game.
