After 2nd try
At first I thought controls are broken because it only moved left and right. Also I'm not sure if I'm playing right version. I play the one that is parent in Hyperspin some Jap ver type C with HS theme. I couldn't find the rom name in TAB section.

That will probably have to be my only submission. My MAME computer is screwing and BIOS is either dropping hard drives connected with SATA or is changing their true GB value to something else and then Windows errors out and is not seeing them or can't access it. Just when I finally put my whole thing together. Damn!

Brilliant. Nobody bothers to play this game, the guy to choose the next game hasn't logged in for more than a week, so, to keep the ball rolling, I playtest a few games to find one that uses just one button and make 3rd place. Then you come along.

pbj, your turn to choose the next one.

Is there a reason we're sticking to one button games?  I'd like to choose Bank Panic....

Bank panic is a fun game. I remember playing it in the old days. There was a Bank Panic at the MGC 2 years ago. I wanted to wheel it out the back door.

I would like to have a one button game because my right thumb is still kaput so I have to hold a 360 pad in the left hand and use the left bumper as a button. I simply can't play games with more buttons at the moment.

But it's your choice, go ahead with Bank Panic.  :cheers:

Was I supposed to pick the game? I thought 3rd place winner picks it and I knew I don't have shot at 3rd place with my "high" score.

EDIT: Btw, that's what sucks about the new rule! It used to be all about 1st place and reward was pick of new game. Now it's all about throwing in game just so you can be in 3rd place and pick a game. Not a fan of new rule.

Dude, I got to it when I could.  I enjoy these competitions even though I'm always in last place.

Stop being bitter about Jumpman.

It would have been your turn to pick the next game if me and pbj hadn't posted a score. Since you were offline after posting your score, I stepped in to have the compo continue without a break.

Regarding the new rule, it's a much better system. If you take a look at the compo results from 2015 up to now, you'll notice that there is one guy, sometimes two guys who have won 14-16 games of the 26 games per year. Now imagine those guys choosing their favorite games, this would probably end in them winning and choosing even more games.
As for choosing the next game being a reward: I think that most of the regular players who got to choose the next game a lot of times before actually try to avoid this 'reward'.
I'd say that yamatetsu, acvieluf and jasonbar would actually be glad if someone suggested a game they can use for the next compo. No need to throw your scores just to get third place.
