    What is the MAME ROW?

    MAME ROW stands for MAME Random Of the Week. We randomly select an arcade game from the 0.78 MAME Reference Set to play on the week. The idea is to play games we've never played before, interact with other forum members, post hi-scores, share game strategies, fun facts, and (the most important) HAVE FUN!


    1. We usually post hi-scores screenshots after playing with only one credit. If you used more than one credit, please mention it on your post.

    2. There's no need to use RetroPie to join the MAME ROW! You can play it on any platform you want.

    3. Feel free to post your hi-score (or any content about the game) anytime you want on the previous rounds topics (link below).

    Every Monday we create a topic at the "General Discussion and Gaming > MAME Random Of the Week" forum section with the 3 random games to be voted. And on Wednesday we check the result.

    These "rules" are constantly being improved!

  • Voted for Castlevania. I really HATED both Spy Hunter II and Starblade. Spy Hunter II was about as exciting as watching (and listening to) paint dry. The beloved soundtrack from Spy Hunter was gone.

    Starblade had potential, but StarFox on the SNES was better in every way, especially the way that YOU COULD ACTUALLY FLY YOUR SHIP. Starblade's fixed pathing and complete inability to dodge was frustrating as hell.

  • MAME ROW #106 is now live
