TSF's Top 19 Yolympics Games
« on: March 11, 2019, 09:03:48 am »
A quick run down of TSF's ranked list of the 19 games in the Yolympics tourney.

1. Arkanoid - Ball and paddle 4Lyfe

2. Gun.Smoke - Hadn't played this since the 90's and quickly remembered why I enjoyed it back then. 

3. 1942 - Easy to pick up and play and eventually a bit tougher as you traverse the game.  I think the difficulty curve is nice and keeps you playing with enough variation in terms of trying to maximize score vs stay alive, etc.

4. Super Pang - Always thought this was a neat game concept since I first played it when it was in one of these things previously

5. Espgaluda - A game I'd not played before but quickly really fell in love with the game mechanics, scoring system, graphics, etc.  A really attractive game that I'd play again.

6. Ladybug - One of the few Pac clones (kind of) that someone got right.  Medium is a bit too frustrating though imo.

7. Moon Patrol - It's fine.

8. Donkey Kong -  I beat <Allen>

9. Alien vs Predator - I normally dislike beat em ups, for whatever reason I never really frequented them growing up.  I love the Alien movies though and so I figured I'd give this one a fair shake given I did like Final Fight when it was in the other tourney.  I found this (I think) to be a bit fairer than Final Fight to me and the AvP theme was enjoyable.  This might be my new favorite beat em up. 

10.  Jr Pac Turbo - Meh

11. Galaga - Chit game.  HeyGuys Barra

12.  Toobin - I'd probably like it more if I learned how to properly toob.  I did go on vacation for a week or so during this tourney and actually did some real life Toobin.  It didn't help so much.

13. Raiden 2 - Hurts my hand but I didn't hate it

14. Shock Troopers 2 - Not as good as 1 but playable and a decent risk vs reward scoring system made it more interesting to me.  Dat clip art though. 

15. Bubble Bobble Lost Cave - Not a fan of this series.  I asked Barra if my wife could play it for me and he said it was ok but in the end I decided to give it a go on my own.  I don't much like the stalling for item drops and such.

16. DoDonPachi - Didn't really understand the enjoyment of this game.  I suppose trying to get the chains up is satisfying for some but was met with mostly frustration by me and my eyes hurt trying to track shots.  I don't really get it.

17. Ghouls and Ghosts - I played with a shirt so maybe I was doing it wrong

18. Fuxston II - Nope

19. Metal Slug X - My god the restarts, can we stop with the games that take like 15 minutes to get going only to result in restarts?  MSX, Bubble Bobble, GnG, CheckPointHellxton II, etc.

In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello
