Allright, that sounds as if its easy staying alive, and would become boring to watch. We'll stick with one entry then smiley

Good question - personally i wouldn't say so as its relatively trivial to avoid your mum (or drag her over to your dad if you're running low on photo strips) It would be a test of patience more than anything else :)

@mechafatnick:

Yeah, but would it be a good idea, opening two entries? Like this:

BTTF [Level 1][Shortest Completion Time]

and

BTTF [Level 1][Not Completed / Longest Game]

to give those some competition who can't complete it? Is it a skill factor being able to stay alive longer than other players who can't complete it?

@Frankie: I like the idea of back to the future. I just don't think the 8-bits could match their ambition :)

@Frankie: Sorry yes it should be shortest completion time!

Hi

In Back To The Future for the Spectrum, should that be [Level 1] [Shortest Completion Time]?

Or is there a way to score it if you don't complete it? If not completed would the longest time be what counts? Meaning if you don't complete it, its good to stay alive as long as possible?

The game confuse me. Never liked it, probably one of the worst movie license on the Spectrum smiley

I've rejected Bubble Burster, as its already in the database as Bubble Buster, which is the Sinclair release of Cannon Ball smiley

@Frankie: I'd argue so - from a gameplay perspective there are three crucial differences: -In bomberman, the faces on the floaters mean their patterns have 3 easily identifiable phases, rather than the two found in Eric. -The bubbles in bubble burster have more of a sine-like pattern to their movement. In cannonball, their arc is a harsher, more triangular one. - The sinclair-published versions have joystick support. The original versions do not. I'm really interested in how the sinclair-published deal came about. Aside from the obvious technical similarity between the Speccy and the MSX, there's no details of the technicalities anywhere

With Bubble Burster do you think of Bubble Buster? All 3 games requested are Hudson Soft games right? Is Bomberman really that different to Eric and the Floaters which is almost the same game?

@S.BAZ:

Yes! it's not one I'd really heard of before - the kind of thing your eyes would just gloss over if you saw it on a shelf of saturn games. It's really good though. It might be a bit wall huggy, but its got that all important touch of Super Monaco about it.

Yep It's arcade mode! please go ahead (and if you could fix Suzuka to time as well that'd be swell)

@mechafatnick:

hi!

I'm working on fixing the F1 Challenge entrys & have a couple questions --

Are these for "Arcade Mode" ?

Also for racing games generally we have just the game and the track in the title, only adding more info if it's for something other than total time for that race.  So I was thinking of editing these titles for consistency, is there any reason I shouldn't do that?
