Enter the contest for the best CPC players
« on: 14:42, 03 April 19 »

Fan of games cpc, I added on my personal page (https://bzhgames.000webhostapp.com) a CPC emulator to play vintage games.
I suggest you try and rank among the best CPC players.
Good game

Metr is a super player on CPC and other retro computer.
He had tested our R-Type remake and we have created the MASTER MODE for him exclusively... He had completed it into the day. :-\
He looks to not be logged here since a year... Don't wake-up the beast, else nobody will be able to beat your hall of fame!  ;D

This guy can finish Jet Set Willy with one life, and when you watch the video, all looks easy... No, he is a robot.
In 2012, he won the Maldita Castilla arcade machine by defeating the World Champion of this game came in Spain thinking he had a chance to return with it in USA!  :laugh:

Ok, most CPC games don't play very fast, but Metr sees everything in slow motion, notwithstanding that it is a bullet-hell on the Dreamcast or a slow-paced CPC game. I have seen him playing for years and it is always the same, people wondering "how can he do that!". It is amazing seeing him in action. He attracts crowds of public when playing a hard videogame. He is/should be/will be a legend.

Well, what i can say, he is the Hercules of videogames. I am sure that if he was born in usa, he would have more documentaries than Billy Mitchell... in short, he is the Chuck Norris of videogames and he even won Daryl in Pole Position  ;D

I did not understand how players could get so many points on the game "Bruce Lee".
In fact I, I stopped at the end of the game, but it is necessary to continue and temrine the game several times in the same part, it can take hours  :doh:

Indeed the trick to get a high high-score in most games is usually to play thru the game several times in a row. The trick to Bruce lee is that is has a "easter egg" that if you play really well and manage to push your lives counter up from 9 it changes to 99 lives, this obviuosly help on the harders screens like the 4 laser field one. Of cause just playing good isnt enough as you also need to know about the the replenishing "glitch/egg" in the long corridor jing/jang room where if you leave the room with a single left click it pulls you back into the right & the "extra life"-jing-jang symbol has replenished itself. However the jing-jang only replenishes itself about 4 or 5 times i think. So to get enough you really need to do a perfect run. However if you are a bit rusty old & mess up on the way you may still mange to get juuust enough points to get the 99 lives just before the laser field like i do here:

(at 7:38-ish i enter the long corridor and do the egg jing jang thingy)


EDIT: oh and Bruce Lee has other glitches like lean down at corners to skip to other rooms, but those dont help in getting the high-score up thou

[size=78%]I saw that, but I think it only works the first time.[/size]
Because when I finish the game and it starts again in the first table, my lives are reset, I do not have my 99 lives anymore. And the jing / jang symbols only appear once.

I used to be able to play a single game of Yie Ar Kung Fu on CPC for 8 hours straight.  Eventually the score clocks over to strange multicolour characters.

For the game "Gryzor", I found how to get the best score just by keeping the "fire" button pressed until you get 999800 points. After the score returns to 0.

Or you could finish it and get the maximum score.

Hello everyone,

I just added the possibility to add a comment for each of the games to advise players in difficulty or simply to give his opinion on the game.

It is actually possible to get all 9's in this game. Highest I ever got in this game was 999,999. It doesn't allow you to get to a million.

Also, the 99 lives does reset back to 3 lives after you hit certain score targets, although if you can do a couple of run throughs, you can get 99 lives again once you pass 9 lives.
The game is bug riddled six ways from Sunday, but a lot of fun. I think I killed 4 and a half hours on this particular run last August.

Good times
