This week's winner is Puzzle Bobble
Except for @lilbud, he has to play Hard Drivin ;)
While I would also appreciate more powerful hardware, I am also really enjoying the "constraints breed creativity" aspect of the Pi. With limited resources available people have been very creative in finding solutions. On a more powerful system you can be messier with an implementation because extra resource availability will absorb inefficiencies.
I've been playing Final Fantasy(NES) for the first time and have rapidly realized how much we take for granted in modern RPGs. The fact that if an enemy is defeated in a battle that your party doesn't automatically re-target, or that you can buy items that your party member can't use are points of frustration, but I'm glad I'm playing it.
The three random numbers for this week are: 1900, 1284, 2052

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 > 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!
@meleu I'll be in Europe, so how about if no post by 8 AM Brazil time on Monday? I should have the post up much earlier this coming week due to time zones, but I will try to keep the results at the same time so everyone has time to vote.
