Black Tiger one of my favourites and I'll be submitting a hi-score soon. :)
I'll try to submit a score for Black Tiger. I remember playing this on my Spectrum but never seriously played it in the arcade so it'll be fun.

In homage to Ready Player One (the book) I'll truly enjoy this weeks MAME ROW. Well done!

I know the mods get annoyed at people resurrecting old post topics, but for MAME ROW is it cool to go through the past postings before I came along and add screenshots, etc?
@VictimRLSH Feel free to do so. Necro-posts are not annoying if you add useful/pertinent info to an existing topic.

@AndersHP it’s a great book indeed, I liked it better than the movie :)
Sadly, my performance here won’t be enough to even get to that level :D
I’m starting things with a paltry 18.100, early level 2.
EDIT: for the record, on the mame2003 build I’m on, I couldn’t see the high-score entry cursor, so I had to count keypresses to guess where I’d be. Maybe in a more recent version, or on lr-fbalpha it works better.

Had a few attempts at Black Tiger tonight. Making use of the dungeon at the far right of level 1 for extra points, I made it to level 2 and a score of 31700.
It's a nice game, I'm sure repeated play would reveal a lot more secrets.
@GtBFilms Nice score! I'll give it another shot today then to see if I can get anywhere close to that, but I'm not confident that that'll happen :)

MAME ROW #116 is live!
@GtBFilms I have mixed feelings now. Indeed, milking the dungeon to the right of the first level does allow you to increase your score quite a bit, though I kind of feel wrong about relying on it. Maybe we should do one run without milking it (i.e. just going through it straight ahead, not staying longer and killing more)?
I got 39,300, died in the middle of the second level.
In the dungeon, immediately to the left of the starting location if you destroy the wall I received an item that was worth around 10k points, I think? Unsure if it’s permanently there or random, but hope it helps.
