There's trouble in Mr. Do!'s orchard! All he wants to do is harvest all the goodies in it . . . but evil Badguys are chasing him every step of the way. Mow a path to the cherries and start picking, then have Mr. Do! throw his Power Ball to eliminate some of his pursuers. More Badguys just keep right on coming, though, so push apples down to squash them flat! It takes skill, strategy, speed and planning to clear out the orchard, get special bonuses and advance to an even more challenging orchard screen.

I don't understand how to get past Round 1 in Mr. Chin. I get all the plates to the top and then there is nothing more to do it seems. I watched a couple videos & whenever they get all the plates up, they get a bonus & the round ends. But for me nothing happens. All I can do is wait for a plate to drop so I can put another one up there for another 100pts. :?

 

Mr. Chin: 2,000 pts.

Not sure why your game isn't advancing. Once you have a plate on all the sticks you'll go to the next level. The trick really is to get those plates up there QUICK before they start to drop. Once they drop you're kind of screwed.

the 3rd rom I tried worked :)

 

My apologies for posting the demo round 1 only version of Mr. Chin. I should have played it first, before posting. Won't happen again! Where exactly did you find the rom that played past round 1 Baz?

Mr. Chin 63,100. By a mere 300 Baz. Jumping or ducking under the swords and plates the Samurai throws is vital at higher rounds. Can't really use any set patterns due to the randomness of the Samurai. Building up extra Mr Chins early and side to side organized backtracking. Fun game.

New personal best on Skill 1 of Mr. Chin: 53,600 pts. It's a fun game, but there are bullshit deaths that are out of your control in this game. It's impossible to have the time to re-set EVERY plate; even worse, the knife-wielding ninja (in)conveniently appearing and IMMEDIATELY throwing the knife as soon as you grab a new plate happens way too often. The fact that there's no timer bonus and you get only 100 points for each plate you set makes this a flawed scoring system that relies too much on luck.

Gratz on the new personal best and yes there are numerous bs deaths in numerous games. Probably thousands of them in my gaming life. However It is possible to reset the bottom two rows of plates and a few at the top to be successful and clear the round. I've been able to do this up to round six so far. I'm sure with some more game play I could at higher rounds as well. The key to this game is patience. I'll try to put together a video in the next day or so.
