Cool!  Picked a good day to stop by.

I suggest anybody wanting to compete use the latest bin (attached here).

It's a little different from the last version I posted in the above thread.  Quick overview:

You have 60 seconds to score as many points as you can.
Red lion = 1 point
Blue lion = 3 points
Hitting the native takes 10 seconds off the timer.

If you hit 6 blue lions before the time expires you get bonus time.
This used to be fixed at 30 seconds, but I was wanting to do something to promote aggressive play and reward a good game. So, the number of seconds added is now based on the 10's digit of the timer when you hit the 6th blue lion. 0 = +10, 1 = +20, 2 = +30, 3 = +40, etc.

I'm always around.   ;)  Haven't had much time to devote to retro-gaming lately.  I have started something new though.  See pic.

It's still in the early stages, so I'm not going to go into it too much at the moment.  If it ever reaches a playable state I'll start a thread for it.  BTW - are we ever going to see a bin for Amityville?  Looks cool.

For the score compo, I played a couple of quick games and 51 was the best I could do.  Just something to give people a target.

I'd like to play along. I downloaded the ROM but I can't get Jungle Girl to move. I'm using o2em, all my other games work. Looks great by the way!

Thanks!

Hmmm... not sure what to tell you on that one.  I downloaded the bin I posted to make sure it wasn't corrupt and it worked fine for me.  I'd download it again if I were you.  Default keys in O2em should be left arrow, right arrow, and L to fire.

If you aren't running v 1.18.1 of O2em I'd suggest upgrading.  You can get it here:

Or the beta 1.20:

As author of the game, I declare whoever wins the compo in this thread to be the Jungle Girl OFFICIAL WORLD CHAMPION!

Just think, strangers will buy you a beer, women will throw themselves at you, etc......... or not.   ;)

You do get bragging rights amongst the handful of people who take part though.  Good luck!

Hi,
You might have to swap the joystick settings.
My O2em joystick settings are stick 1 default left keys. stick 2 joystick
If your using a newer version press F7 to swap joysticks.
I hope this helps. :)
