    128,900 played using Mednaffe with a Logitech USB gamepad. 
    Having PC troubles so I couldn't get to this via emu all week. Had time to restore today. 
    Like @Atari Creep, this was my first time playing this game. My first impressions are that it looks really great for the time and is a fun adventure platformer. I would have been pumped to have it as a pack-in.
    I think the Creep mentioned that it has a shooter vibe and I think that's a right on observation.  The powerups and body double, coupled with bullet hell inspired enemies make it feel a bit like a SCHMUP. 
    In terms of a single-life high score run, the enemy regen allows you to rack up points without the need to progress. Theoretically, you could stay on the first screen and just kill the same three ninja dudes for a few hours. This would be boring as hell but one could do it if points are all that you're after.  For myself, I couldn't take it and had to move on.  Assuming it's the same in real hardware?

    I finally have some free time tonight.  I'm going to give this a try on real hardware.  I've never played it before either.  Looks like fun.

    This is an awesome game!  It's one of those "I just have to see what's next" type of games.  Different weapons, different enemies.  Just pure old-school fun.

    The advantage of dual controllers is very obvious. Having to move in the direction you want to fire is tough. Still a very fun game.

    Yep, I'll give it a shot in emulation.  I've been playing a little of the Robotron 2084 arcade game in MAME with a Playstation 2 controller, using the two thumbsticks for control.  Seems to be working okay, so hoping I can get it to work here, but we'll see.

    Time for me to drag out the 7800.  I'll try with the Europad.

    Try to shoot as many Brains as possible before they get off a shot.  If they do shoot, keep moving and fire back at their homing missiles to destroy the missiles themselves.  That's the only way that I've found to do it.  These are the hardest baddies in the game.  I'm glad they only show up every fifth wave.

    Played on an AV Modded 7800 using @RetroGameBoyz Robotron controller.  
    FYI - This is the best game of Robotron 2084 that I've ever played on the 7800. It's wholly attributed to the controller. Check out my impressions in my blog post.

    I don't have many McDonald's toys in my collection, but I did get the Mario one hitting the yellow box from this set.  My gf works at a thrift store and brought it home one day.
    I also have a red koopa shell that you pull back and let go and it runs across the floor for a bit.  Think it's also a McDonald's thing, but not quite sure.

    Just for the halibut...   a vid of me playing the first level... it took a lot of tries while recording to get through it in one ship, and as you can see, I didn't last long afterwards.  Not my best effort, but the best I had while recording.  There are a few parts in there that I'm not sure how I got through.  lol

    This IS a rough one.  I'm used to playing LifeForce on the NES, but this one steps it up a notch.  The enemies are so fast!  Anyway, I got past the first boss once.  Will play some more and hopefully improve.
