This is the MAME Random Of the Week #32
The three random numbers for this week are: 1636,
1046 is Mahjong Gakuen and was removed from consideration because it is a mahjong game.
The result of the poll is posted on Wednesday, so we have Monday and Tuesday for experimentation.
Game Name: Street Fighter Alpha 2 (US 960306)
ROM file name: sfa2.zip
Game Name: Vanguard (SNK)
ROM file name: vanguard.zip
Game Name: Reikai Doushi (Japan)
Company: Home Data
ROM file name: reikaids.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.
Every Monday we create a topic at the "General Discussion and Gaming" forum section with the 3 random games to be voted. And on Wednesday we check the result.
These "rules" are constantly being improved!
While I suck at these kinds of games, Street Fighter Alpha 2 is another one of Capcom's iconic 2D fighting games.
Vanguard is pretty cool. I like that you can shoot in four directions depending on which action button you press, though I may have to remap buttons as they don't align to anything meaningful on my Genesis 6-button pad that I use for most of my testing.
Reikai Doushi is not only clunky, but the enemies are really overpowered. They were trying to do some innovative things for the time (1988) but it just doesn't hold up well for me.
