Pang [lemon] [hol]
A great coin-op conversion of the 1989 ball bursting arcade game that was originally called Buster Bros. There are a total of 50 levels. Ocean can make good games.

Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge [lemon] [hol]
Iconic car. Iconic racing series. If you beat all the the races and come top of the results table there is a message which you could send to Gremlin and receive a Lotus License in the post. Still haven't seen one of these online. Anyone got one?

  • Get the best score you can, during this round.
  • Post screenshots of your score in this thread, and write the score nearby.
  • Scores to be achieved without save-states, trainers, passwords, and cheats.
  • No continues or infinite score leeching.
  • Finish the game and post a screenshot of the end for the completion star.
  • Full rules and info are HERE.
Special Scoring and Rules:

  • Pang: Play on Normal mode. Start from Stage 1.
  • Lotus: Play all three difficulties and add the scores together.
  • Lotus: For the completion star finish the hard races and come 1st overall. Screenshot the congratulations message.

Minor alt to the first post because I hadn't checked it properly. For the Lotus completion star screengrab the congratulations message after finishing the hard levels and coming 1st overall.

That's the gauntlet on both games well and truly thrown down.

I'm hoping to do well on Lotus. Been a while though. I'm probably even rustier.

The Easy races have a few trickier ones than I remembered. Sweden and China gave me some bother. A bad combo of traffic and hills.

Lotus - Easy - 140

First stab at Easy mode. Nice and, well, easy really. I'll chuck a video on YouTube later for the hell of it.





Lotus: Easy - 140

EDIT: YouTube video here, not very exciting (and sorry for the stretched image!)

Thanks to those who came along to watch last night, it was a blast! I've taken my screengrabs from the video - if you want to have a peek you can do so here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/980217588


Got a long way into Pang, slipped up (LITERALLY!) on Antarctica.





Pang: 1,581,800

Lotus hard mode completed! (Still need to do Medium) Just about negotiated Antarctica this time round.






Lotus: Hard mode - 229

Aw, so close to beating Pang Graham. I can't remember how hard it gets later on but not sure I'll get that far. Can't resist popping everything at once.

I've been mucking about with Lotus. Reckon the top speed in the game might be 189mph. Did it in Mexico. Don't think there's a faster track. Wanted to hit 190 but it seemed to limit the gains to 189.

Wow, I see you got a 290 before. That's impressive.

Wales is unbeatable, right? What's the best you've got on it?

Thanks. I was first in Wales once in my lifetime. In that play of 285 I was second in Wales but only 4th in Antarctica. Well, I doubt I can improve this as Wales is a lottery and my playing skills have fallen behind as I am older now.

Don't think I've ever done better than 4th in Wales. Good to know max points is possible even if there's a huge bit of chance involved. Plus it's seriously hard.

Lotus:


Easy: 126


Hard: 51

I'm not fairing all that well this round. Getting these scores in now in case I don't find the time for any improvments. Some points are better than no points, right?

Also got 189mph in Canada:



Really seems to be max speed (btw., that equals 304 km/h).

You're on the cusp of being in the top ten players, so yeah. If you had more time you'd be kicking more butt. Oh, to be a full time twitch streamer.

Nice. Really like that one but didn't notice the speed before.
