Is it Pole Position in space?
Sort of.

Is it Bump 'n' Jump?
Almost.

Is it spacey MotoRace USA?
Kinda.

Is it hard?
Yammo will figure out strategies & bonuses & techniques & Easter eggs & then share them with all of us, so we can all still lose but feel worse about ourselves for losing on even ground.

Is it the next higher game on my MAME cab's list after Space Panic?
Yup.


ROM Set: spcpostn.zip

DIPs:
 - Obstruction Car: Norman
 - Time Limit: 1:30
 - Power Down: Normal
 
KLOV: https://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=9680






 

General Rules:

- Highest score wins.

- No savestates, savestate practices, etc. during the round.

- MAME INP recordings are encouraged but optional.

- A screenshot is required to enter a score (press F12 to save screenshot showing your final score) or take a photo of the game screen. And for heaven's sake, take 8 seconds to type your score into the body of your post so you don't make myriad other people have to do work that you can't be bothered to do yourself.

- If you're a MARP competitor on this title, keep in mind this is just a friendly competition among forum members, so maybe you shouldn't enter. However, if you're a forum member and this is a game you're good at and nobody knows about it, this is your time to shine!

- Even if you don't have a competitive score or if you don't *think* that you have a competitive score, please post it anyway to keep the thread fun & to give everybody a good sense of score ranges.

- Please make sure your scores are from games that take place during the competition period (no posting your best score from last year, etc.).

- Use of autofire or other non-standard hacks within MAME or your PC's OS are not allowed.  No program or other person or entity of any sort may manipulate your controls during your game.  Coaching & back-seat driving is fine as long as the party doesn't directly influence the game or controls.

- If you can beat any of the high scores from the previous competitions, you can submit your score to the BYOAC High Game Scoreboard.

Good luck!

Kicker-offer (and likely only score to be submitted by me on this one): 16,320.
I also got an ST of 2, which I think is stage, as I got to the first checkpoint on this game but did not reach the 2nd one.
And I got a CO of 1, which means that I earned either 1 Colorado or 1 carbon monoxide in this effort.

57,280. My first piece of advice: Don't play this on a horizontal 19" monitor. As soon as the splitscreen mode starts, it gets real bad.

It's a goofy wanna-be sort of racing game. The attract main screen is some rip-off of Knight Rider. I don't know what jumping does anything for.........

You can jump out from/into tight spots. It also makes you briefly invulnerable. Costs fuel, though.

Played once more. Improvement.

Didn't jump even once.

There seems to be some way to power up your car or get something to carry it faster or something. Haven't figured that out.

You can pull the stick back to do some kind of wheelie. If you do this in the green zone and manage to destroy a car, you get transformed into an invulnerable tank for a few seconds.

Don't ask me how I found that out, because I didn't. Youtube is my friend  ;D

Another one done. After a hard fought battle, jason bested me, so I get to choose the next game.

Game #36: Space Dungeon

Good luck with that.
