MAME/Arcade High Score Club Season 5.24: Gorf

Recommended Posts



The player controls a spaceship that must blast its way through five missions, each a different challenge. The game features a pistol grip joystick and robotic speech synthesis that heckles the player during gameplay. The player's goal is to defeat the Gorfian Empire in five separate missions. The first mission is like Space Invaders. The second mission pits the player against two squads of diving ships, each squad has a special ship that fires long laser beams. The third mission is like Galaxian. The fourth mission has the player fight a number of enemies that spiral toward the player shooting fireballs. The fifth mission has the player fight the Gorfian Flagship. The Flagship's shields must first be battered down, then the player must hit the Flagship in a tiny exhaust port in order to destroy it.

This game seems to play very slow. Maybe it's a emulation issue?


I have the same problem with mame 106.

With 119 it seems to be OK except that I don't receive any extra ship after completing the 5th screen.

I had known of Gorf for many years, but this was my first time ever playing it. I can't say I'm a fan. The collision detection really feels like it favors enemy bullets; the player ship can't move the full width of the screen, yet enemies can take positions outside the range of player movement; and, unless it's MAME 0.144 doing things improperly, the game stutters constantly (and my CPU never went below 70% idle, so it wasn't a processor bottleneck). Anyway, the best I did was 13,240.

Also, I was asked to post for my brother (Cynicaster)








I hope this gets accepted. I was out for the evening and forgot to make my entry. Here's the pic:




I was unable to get the free man to work on v122 so this is with 3 lives.
