    ^ Mal, your MAWS link is currently pointing to the data for Intrepid. When you find a game you want to link to, you need to scroll to the bottom of its info page, and click on "Bookmarkable Frame" before you can copy the link. ;)

    @skeezix - You'd have to pick one version of Bubble Bobble and seriously stick with it. None of the many home ports actually have the same gameplay mechanics as the arcade original! (Yes, the words of a Bubble Bobble addict.)

    Maybe you should nominate the version you like and then if one of them gets randomly picked for the vote, we could make it a rule that all nominated versions of a randomly picked game also get added to the vote. Or something like that. We need someway to deal with multiple nominated versions of the same game ,no sense in keeping one version on the list once we've played the other. The same game would never get voted in twice or at least it shouldn't be.

    It has remixed CD quality audio tracks and is considered the best console port of the game. I think the only differences to the Arcade version are cosmetic. Gameplaywise it should be identical.
    With PicoDrive it'll be fullspeed on all devices except GP32 (meaning PSP, Pandora, GP2X, Dingoo).

    But if the majority prefers the Arcade version of course we could play that instead. If it runs on all the devices at fullspeed, too.

    Oh, I meant that we definately would have to nail one down, but wasn't sure which. As an ST nutbar I rather dig th ST port -- quite authentic imho. But many folks might not 'grok' ST (or C64, or SMS/GG, etc) so probably jst gogn to arcade build would make more sense. But in these cases it always makes itinteresting .. what is the most wildly available version? What are legal statues, etc? .. fwiw, I own an arcade pcb for it, and the ST version, but I try not to lean my own way _too_ much ;)

    In general, besto default to arcade I imagine.

    *updated list

    imo, people should just nominate the version they like and/or own. If other people would prefer a different version or platform, they should also nominate that version, I'd add it to the possible platforms for that game in the list and we could just do a pole on the game after it was picked to nail down the platform/version. As it stands we already have 2 versions of Golden Axe on the list and I'm wondering how it will play out. We probably wouldn't want one version remaining on the list after we played the other...

    I wasn't really fussed which version is nominated, I just wondered why john4p preferred it on Sega CD is all. In fact I've played the arcade version A LOT so Sega CD sounds good to me :)

    Edit: spelling

    Also good would be the original TMNT arcade game. There was a good NES port of that one too. I'm not sure if there are any scoring differences twixt the TMNT arcade games and the console ports. Also, there was recently an Xbox Live re-release of the Turtles In Time game with updated graphics. I've played it for a few minutes, but again, I'm not sure what the scoring / difficulty differences would be.

    This video is hilarious :lol:
    Although it does give a good strategy. I played this game a ton back in the day and I never knew about slowing them down, don't think I even knew that the game ended if they reached the right of the screen :p

    I have a new nomination to make.

    1: Genre: Platformer
    2: Name: Crazy Kong Part II
    3: Platform: Arcade (Supported by MAME4All and MAME 0.106)
    4: Scoring: High score
    5: Info link: Crazy Kong Part II info from StrategyWiki
    6: Screenshot (Borrowed from StrategyWiki);
    Crazy_Kong_Level2_Stage1.png
    7: YouTube video (Pardon the horrible stretching. I don't know why the uploader did that.)

    Crazy Kong Part II, by Falcon, was the official European license for the game Donkey Kong (I gather that it's renamed "Crazy Kong" because it runs on Crazy Climber hardware; The "Part II" signifies that it's a revision from the earlier version that Falcon produced, which was simply called "Crazy Kong", and did not have the level differences which I will describe in a moment). Falcon famously breached the agreement by later producing the boards and selling them in other countries, during a time when Nintendo couldn't keep up with demand for Donkey Kong PCBs. This ended up with Falcon's license being revoked. Crazy Kong Part II was also bootlegged to all hell.

    Some notes: I nominated Crazy Kong Part II for two reasons. 1: It's not just a recoloured version of the game with a couple of redrawn sprites - it has some significant gameplay differences, so it has something to offer even to those who are experienced at playing Donkey Kong. 2: It's the version of Donkey Kong that I own, so I could take part if it came up. :lol:

    As you can see in the screenshot, something is different. After the first set of 25m-50m-75m-100m stages, two of the stages change a bit - the 25m stage has added holes in the girders, and some of the platforms in the 75m stage are narrower, giving you less room to avoid the deadly springboards that fall. This adds a bit more challenge. Additionally, whilst Kong apparently throws a few less barrels in this version, the game in general is apparently faster.

    Crazy Kong Part II is known as "Crazy Kong (Set 1)" (ckong.zip) in both MAME4All and MAME 0.106.
