She's somewhere else. Definitely not at the bottom of this pit of blocks.

Argh, just did a run ten feet short of yours, Colin. Right, let's go again!

EDIT: FFS, as soon as my Vita gets some more juice in it, that is. :lol:

Probably my final submission. I've been playing the hell out of this, it's a fantastic arcade game. So much more depth, no pun intended, that I originally thought.

4440ft : 165'960 points

Nice run Alex.

I haven't bettered mine and I'm even struggling to get past 3500m now, so I think I'll leave it there.
It actually plays really well even on the weak hardware. Its a nice port. Good fun.

Woo! Once I realised you can dig down faster than blocks can fall I started getting much better scores.

Sorry, wasn't able to compete. Played some more Truxton though and nearly reached the 200k mark!

So... because One Credit Ben stated his intention to play, technically that means Alex beat him... :D

The new game choice is in...

Edit: Mesen is meant to be good, very accurate, it was recommended we play with that when we were doing a score competition for blade buster on reddit. If that got ported to the vita, might be worth getting that one.

Well done Alex!
I did get the chance to play this again after the first night but I couldn't be arsed.
A weeks not long enough, some weeks I don't even have the motivation to focus my eyes let alone play shitty games :lol:

I've still been playing truxton too! The arcade version though, and truxton 2 as well. There was nothing wrong with the megadrive port but the reduced vertical play area made the cowardly blindsiding enemies way less fair.

This is great trying new/old games at random together. Digger didn't slide into my top 100, but I'm glad I tried it.

Sqoon. Man, that looks janky as hell :lol: I'll give it a go!

edit: Ha! Look at this, an emulator that 3difies the games

Oh wow, this is pretty cool! Had time for a quick shot there. I love how you save the hoomans from the sharks and then lift them up to the boat, and I love that little mechanic where you run out of fuel and you can pick up those shiny blocks from killing the crabs and then spend them at the boats and they give you more fuel.
That's really cute. I really like this! It feels like something that'd be in that ufo 50 thing.
I was just learning what was going on there, I'll play some more tonight hopefully, but there's a score to get your balls rolling.
