Welcome to our 135th Squad Challenge!!! For this challenge we're playing one of the most iconic arcade games of all time - Burgertime! We are primarily playing Burgertime on MAME, but feel free to play Burgertime on the original arcade cabinet, multigame cabinet, Evercade, or any other method you'd like - so long as you're playing the original arcade version of Burgertime. NES, Intellivision, ColecoVision, and any other version of Burgertime that is not the original arcade version is not accepted. Are you ready to drop those patties, dodge aggressive ketchup and flee from salt and pepper shakers? I hope you all have fun, and good luck to everybody participating!

If it runs the original ROM, then it's good for the competition.  Most of the arcade collections are fine. 

I don't believe there's a way to determine that on Antstream, is there? I mean, outside of familiarity: Xevious is the orignal ROM, for example.

14850.  I don't know about you guys, but I find myself fighting the controls on this one.  A lot of times, it just won't go in the direction I want.

I played this on the Evercade VS and I had problems with the controls as well.  I lost lives because I got stuck due to control issues, something that makes me livid!  LOL 

🖖 Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I also experienced control issues playing this on Antstream. Mind you, I was never good at this game, but I don't need bad controls to make me even worse!

I've had the same issues with Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man on the PS3 and 4. The PS2 D pad seems more tight. I used to play this game a lot. I've only cleared the 4th board 3 times. I might have to look for some tips. I'll share whatever I find. 🙂
