MacMAME Arcade '84 Challenge Begins
4:33 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

MacMAME information site usually just rounds up the latest information on the Mac version of this popular emulation project. However, now they have teamed up with two other sites to sponsor the MacMAME Arcade '84 Challenge, a high-score contest which will test your skills at classic titles such as Berserk, Dig Dug and Robotron. The four-week contest will be an elimination round with the final week focused on the most popular game of the first three weeks. Here are the details from the report:

CinemArcade, Bitchkitty Wizbang, and are announcing the MacMAME Arcade '84 Challenge!

The contest will take place during the entire month of July. Based on the games that are featured in the movie Arcade '84, we'll attempt to discover the overall favorite game, then the overall champion of that game.

Based on hi-score submissions to Wizbang (note: this is a new URL - update your bookmarks), we'll narrow down the top 3, then two, then the single most popular game during the first 3 weeks of July. Then during the final week, we'll play for the championship title for that game.

Progress will be posted at the contest page, the scores will be posted at Wizbang and any new contest news will be posted to the MacMAME Message Board, and probably at the three sponsoring sites as well.

Participants will submit their scores as screen shots, but only one per game per week. According to the contest page the prize will be a unique QuickTime VR 'toy' with the winner's name -- and of course the respect and adoration of their MacMAME-playing peers. Visit the official web site for more information.
