Dusting off more of my Neo-Geo MVS games and this week it's Robo Army. The metalic sounds in the game are ultra realistic and it plays very well too. Some would say it's a copy of Capcom's Final Fight...

^^^amazing game Nam, one of the best on the system!

Completely addicted to Kickle Cubicle (Meiky?jima), fantastic puzzle game by Irem. No doubt the PCB is rare as, playing it in mame currently.

This weeks it's ASO 2 (Alpha Mission 2). This was the first game I played on the Neo-Geo and then I was hooked !!! It still stands up well today with some great scolling a sounds effects.

Been attempting to improve my Wind Jammer skills, and pushing my 1credit’s worth on Captain Commando. How do people 1CC this game?! I went through it with continues, and the final boss is just unfair!!!

Ello!

Hi All - I'm still going through my Neo-Geo MVS games and Blazing Star is one for this week. This is a beautiful game and one of the best horizontally scrolling shoot 'em ups out there ! I first saw this game in an arcade in Portugal in 1998 and I was truly blown away by the graphics. They do have a certain charm to them and are a bit like the Progear by Capcom/Cave. Certainly give this a go and this is one of the best games on MVS too.

It's Centipede this week and I still can't beat 50,000 ! This is a rock hard game, do not be put off by the cute coloured graphics, this is a brutal game when it speeds up and the rollerball makes it extra special to play though and this gets the most game play out of my three cabs at the moment...

Agree, great game and hard as nails.   Similarly I think I still can't beat 50k!   This isn't a bad thing, keeps you coming back for more!

I've been getting into Centipede after not having played much for absolutely ages.  High score before was 191k, was getting very close and then had 255k:)

Hoping to better that now but only one game played since.

Two solid days of ACAM at Funspot in New Hampshire with Mr Missile Command TT and it's a toss-up between Zoo Keeper - which I've always loved but not had the chance to play much of until recently - and new discovery Tunnel Hunt (Centuri / Atari) which is almost like a precursor to Stun Runner meets the Death Star trench run on acid; complete with ubiquitous Tie-Fighter. So good.

Hi All - I'm back on Asteroids - this is a killer of a game - my favourite game of all time - hard as nails too. I've had this since 2014 and it's a keeper !

Have been grinding out a no lives lost run of Wonderboy, 6-1 always gets me, far too many squids for my liking. The tune is stuck in my head all week.

Just got a Robocop in for repair , even thought its not fully working i have enjoyed testing it ! (Now i have sorted the inputs). I have missed this game and forgot what a classic it is. It realy does deserve to be played.

Just played Viewpoint today on the Neo-Geo MVS. What a game, nasty and brutal even on the "easy level". 

This is one shoot 'em up everyone should play at least once. 

A triumph for "Sammy" when it was released in 1992.

F355 Challenge - it's as hard as nails, brilliant when you take the time to get into it. A true masterpiece from Yu Suzuki. Released in 1999. I'm palying it on a 1996 Sony 25" CRT TV running at 60fps and of course the TV is running at 60Hz.
