As some of you know, we here at Vector Unit have a sweet X-Arcade MAME cabinet in our office, with a ton of classic arcade games stored on it.
Now, of course most of the time that we're in the office, we're hard at work cranking out more fresh new games for you all to enjoy ... but sometimes we like to take a little break and blow off steam with some sweet old fashioned arcade gaming. And sometimes it gets a little competitive.
The last time we really battled for supremacy on a game it was for Galaga. Matt put up a pretty good fight, but in the end it was Steve who dominated the high score list with a whopping 129,980.
Now we need your help!
We want to battle over a new classic arcade game, but we can't decide which one it should be: Centipede? Ms Pac Man? Defender? Ghoul's n Ghosts? QBert? Dig Dug? Donkey Kong?? Donkey Kong Jr??? Tell us your favorite classic arcade games, and the Vector Unit team will pick one to compete on for high score supremacy. Then we'll post our high scores online for all to marvel at ... or mock.
There can be no hiding from the battle that is to come.
UPDATE: 7/14/2015 "It's Mappy!"
Thanks to those of you who emailed in and wrote suggestions online. We've decided to go with Mappy, the 1983 cops n robbers platformer from Namco.
None of us is particularly good at the game, so it's an even playing field and anybody's guess who will come out on top.
We'll play til the end of July and see what happens!
