    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're still working things out with the new MAME ROW structure. We will play the winner all next week.

    Previous Rounds



  • @obsidianspider Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters is pretty fun and has my vote. Pumped many a quarter into that game when I was growing up.



  • So what's the point of Toki no Senshi - Chrono Soldier? I'll have to look into that one.



  • @IanDaemon Its a top down run and gun type of game, but with a twist. You actually don't have a gun. Instead you have a bomb and a sword.

    @celly I discovered the game last year and is one of the hidden gems from the arcade in my opinion. Since then I didn't play it much, but I love the setting and the style of it.



  • Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters is cool, but it would really benefit from a rotating joystick. I find it hard to aim without one.



  • This week's winner is Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters
