Play Rules

Games may be played on real hardware, Flashback / Mini console, FPGA or emulation, using any controller or keyboard, following all rules and game settings defined in the challenge. Choosing between real hardware or emulation, and choosing which controller to play on is part of formulating your strategy. Enhancements, rewinds, save states and hacked versions of this game are not allowed.

NORMAL. We will be playing Midnight Magic on NORMAL Skill Level.


Fair Play

Your integrity is everything. Players should play fairly, be honest, and have fun! Falsified scores will result in your immediate removal from the site. It goes without saying that we will not allow cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, enhancements, rewinds, deceitful photo manipulation, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage. Everybody hates a cheater.

Welcome to our 156th Squad Challenge! This month we'll be playing Beef Drop, nominated by TrekMD for the 7800. Beef Drop is a classic homebrew by developer Ken Siders and released nearly 20 years ago. Beef Drop is a terrific translation of Burgertime and plays well on the 7800. ROM and Instructions will have to be sourced online. Enjoy!

Thank you once again for kind words, @Justin! Also, congratulations to all of the participants!


I don't have MAME installed on my MacBook. However, I am proposing an alternative method for playing the arcade version of Pengo via retrogames.cc. (There are several versions, though; I'm sure the bootleg version would be excluded.)
