Mame recommendations?

Post by rossi46 » Sun Mar 29, 2009 6:38 pm

What are your most played Mame titles?

I'm currently enjoying Black Tiger, Strider, Gunbird, R-Type Leo and Contra.

Have you got a list of top arcade games?
Thoughts and prayers.

I'm loving Boogie Wings, Samurai Shodown IV, Waku Waku 7, Shock Troopers 2, all them lovely Metal Slug games, and GigaWing, and DoDonPachi. Lovely stuff.

Also Asteroids.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time
Circus Charlie

Bagman (which was unofficially converted to the Speccy as 'Gilligan's Gold' by Ocean)
Iron Horse

Could go on but that's all I can think of off the top of my head at the mo, so they must be my favourites. I'll play pretty much anything that's any good.

Lately the first game I play when I boot up mame is Amidar. I've also been spending some time on Robocop, Chase HQ - even though I don't have any kind of steering wheel, Rygar, Rastan, Strider and two of my favourites Last Blade 2 and Rolling Thunder.

It is a good game though.

Tell me you haven't persevered right through to the end...............?

Oh and Nude Miss World. An excellent variant of Qix. An example of how mad the Japanese can be.


Bank Panic
Bomb Jack
Crush Roller
Black Tiger

We should have a thread on MAME 'hidden gems'.
I have about 1200 games on my xbox. Probably play the same 10 -15 all the time.
There must be some great games hidden away there....

One I discovered thanks to the Retroleague is Nitro Ball, a great game from Data East. Sort of a cross between Smash TV and pinball!
