I'm sitting this one out this week. I'm using an older version of MAME in my cabinet that doesn't support this game.

My version of MAME doesn't support the ROM set linked in post #1, but I went searching for a set compatible with version .144 and got it to work that way.




I don't understand how this game works. . . . It took me a while just to notice that the attract screen tutorial used the left and right directions on the stick to do something.
