  4. I agree. It's a cool game. But it didn't do for Atari what Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc. did for Nintendo. And it potentially could have. You're welcome Rick ☺️

We're going for a one-two punch with our second MAME Squad Challenge in a row! There was such great excitement and enthusiasm for our first MAME Squad Challenge, BTB convinced me to do this again! While everybody's got their MAME setup in action and ready to go, we're going to do back-to-back MAME challenges. The Adventures of Major Havoc was released to arcades by Atari, Inc. in 1983. It was largely designed by Owen Rubin with assistance from Marc Cerny. The original arcade machine uses a unique cylindrical "Roller-Controller" which plays like rolling a pop can left or right. Major Havoc was on the cusp of becoming an Atari mascot, and Sam Tramiel even mentioned in an interview the possibility of introducing Major Havoc into a new Jaguar game and being resurrected as a mascot for Atari Corp. The Adventures of Major Havoc is a super cool arcade game that has never made it to Atari game systems. We're jumping back into MAME for this Squad Challenge and once again if you need help with Emulation, please ask! There are enough kind and knowledgable people in the forums who will be here to help you get up and running. If you're new to Emulation, be sure to stop by our Emulation forum. Instructions and ROM are provided below. You may play this game using emulation (MAME) through whatever means necessary, through "arcade classics" mamecades, or play on real hardware using an original arcade machine. And a special WELCOME to all our new Members playing in this Squad Challenge! Good luck to everybody participating! NOTE: Another great Squad Challenge is right around the corner! major_havoc.pdf major_havoc.zip

  12. The poll is now closed, thanks to everyone for turning out and providing great and very helpful feedback!
  13. Correct. You can emulate this game by any means necessary so long as you're playing the original ROM. 👍 Original arcade machine and arcade legends machines are also acceptable.

      Does OpenEmu work as well? I think it uses MAME as an emulator. Thanks, Justin.

      They are a great band. They are from Basildon, England. I thought they were from Washington, DC, but that's the group Girls Against Boys. I had them confused.

  25. Congratulations Sabertooth! Congratulations to @Sabertooth for becoming our Wrecking Crew Champion! I hope everyone here had a great time discovering Wrecking Crew on NES and how to win at this game. I've been curious about Wrecking Crew for years, but never understood the game until now. It just felt like a smash-em-up game of destruction. No jump, no Princess, no Donkey Kong, why are we even here? Turns out it's an amazing puzzle-platformer with some charm. I played halfway through this challenge before I even figured out how the doors worked! I'm glad this game turned out to be a hit.
