This is the MAME Random Of the Week #125
The three random numbers for this week are: 1868 1568 49
The result of the poll is posted on Wednesday, so we have Monday and Tuesday for experimentation.
Game Name: Super Locomotive
ROM file name: suprloco.zip
Game Name: Strikers 1945
ROM file name: s1945.zip
Game Name: Angel Kids (Japan)
Company: Sega / Nasco?
ROM file name: angelkds.zip
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!
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.
There's no need to use RetroPie to join the MAME ROW! You can play it on any platform you want.
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!
I prefer Strikers 1945 III (Strikers 1999 in Japan) to the original, but that's just me. Cool series though! Angel Kids is wacky enough for my vote!

@IanDaemon Yes .... a fast shooter for today? - So Striker is good
I never heard about Angel Kids ;)
@obsidianspider Something is going wrong with the poll ;)
I think me and Ian voted for Strikers but we have two votes on Angel Kids ;)
So what to do?
@cyperghost And we have only one vote for Strikers 1945?
@IanDaemon seems so ;) I voted for Strikers but saw 2 votes for Angel Kids and 0 for Strikers
@cyperghost Well, I did vote for Angel Kids due to its "wacky-ness" although I enjoy Psikyo shooters. Maybe the poll is accurate? I dunno. I may have to find and add that Super Locomotive title to my collection.

Angel kids is quirky, but I can't get the controls setup well enough to play it over and over (or at all really). My high score is ten points. (That's one dot collected.)
I must've gotten a bad ROM of Super Locomotive. I couldn't get that one to load. All three games this week look to have high replayability!

This game's winner is Strikers 1945
Now we need some good scores ;)
Which combat plane is the best?
- P-38 Lightning
- P-51 Mustang
- Supermarine Spitfire
- Messerschmitt Bf 109
- Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero
- Kyushu J7W Shinden
Whoa, holy voting Batman! (or more appropriately for this audience Ninja Baseball Batman)
Ninja Baseball Batman
It's Ninja Baseball Bat Man. But yes, quite a turnout :).
@mitu Yeah, I was just prepending the "Ninja Baseball" part considering the readership and combining the references. NBBM is a good game. It's a shame that beat 'em up doesn't get more notice. I love the wacky enemies.

@UDb23 There is need for some corrections in the hardcoregaming guide
Messerschmidt Bf-109 [...] Its bomb is one of the stranger attacks, calling in many giant planes to come in and suicide bomb everything on screen.
No it's just a stuka-attack ;)
My contribution to this is ~100.000pts
Piece of cake

MAME ROW #126 is live!
@obsidianspider 10 votes one score :( And Strikers was a good game :(
@IanDaemon I finally have a decent (two stick) control set-up for Angel Kids. Waaay easy when the controls aren't crap. XD
@IanDaemon OK, so the controls are straight-forward, but I still find them difficult.
