MAME ROW #44 - The Last Day
meleu last edited by
As of right now, we've had 122 views on this thread, but only two votes? It makes me wonder why we're doing this if there's so little engagement…
Talking about my case:
My work schedule is 1 week of intense work (12 ininterrupt hours, day shift), 1 week of days off, 1 week of intense work (12h again, but night shift), 2 weeks of days off.
Also, there's an unfortunate coincidence: my weeks start/end on wednesdays. Then there are MAME ROWs where I can vote but I can't play (this was what happened in Chopper I and Armed Formation rounds).
When I'm on my days off I try hard to get the best score, but when I'm on my week of work I'm unable to play (I could vote, but I don't like to do it without trying the game). And that's the case this week.
Well... enough talking about me. :-) I would like to say that we should try to continue a little more.

I generally check the latest MAMEROW thread, but unfortunately don't have a lot of time to play at the moment.
I don't think it's fair for me to vote if I know I don't have a chance to play the games, so I only vote when I've at least had the chance to check them out, and hopefully will have some time to play them and submit a score!
I never fail to be surprised at how soon Wednesday comes round again each week!
The good news is next week I have a sort-of holiday as my wife and son are off to visit her parents, so apart from work, and the inevitable list of 'husband chores' I will be left with (and likely ignore until the day before they are due back) I should have a bot more gaming time!
maybe there could be a reminder in the last day of voting? like this week, i played the 3 games, but thought i might get to play them more before i did my final vote, but never did, and then i forgot to vote :)
i also struggle to fit in playing the chosen game each week, but i think that's less of a problem. there's no real 'deadline' for that part of it - you can keep playing and submitting scores after the week has finished.
@dankcushions How do you propose we remind people?
@obsidianspider just a post in the thread should be enough. i get email alerts because i always 'watch' the threads :)
@dankcushions I can try to do that. I actually turned off the automatic emails because I was getting too many. Now I opt-in to the threads I want to stay up to the minute on.
can't get past the first boss - really hard to hold onto your lives and powerups!

This game has a MegaDrive look&feel (and sound fx).
This is my score after reaching stage 2 and game over: 116400
