Did a quick run through of all the games last night.  I've played all of these before but very little.  Initial thoughts:

 

In the Hunt - absolutely beautiful looking game, especially for 1993, but I tried 10 or so credits and got absolutely nowhere.  Even on a balls-hard Cave shooter like Progear or Guwange I can usually clear a stage or 2 after a few attempts, but not so on In The Hunt.  Will keep at it, though.  

 

Zoo Keeper - my pick, and the one on the list I've played the most.  Unsung classic, IMO.

 

Anteater - I remember playing this in the MAME HSC years ago and thinking it was kind of unfair and frustrating.  That continues to be my impression, although it has a lot of cool ideas.  For my money, I'd rather play the Anteater knock-off known as "Oil's Well" on Colecovision, Commodore 64, and others.  

 

Mr. Do! - played this as a kid on Atari 2600 and could never get into it on MAME/arcade.  Not sure why, maybe I just need to stick with it and give it a chance.  

 

Super Dodge Ball - neat game but I'm struggling to see what the strategy is.  Also, it's going to be very difficult to capture pictures of scores with this one because the score blanks out immediately after you lose.  Might have to go with the honor system.

 

Wonder Boy - I played this briefly years ago in an online competition somewhere, and didn't get it.  Played a few rounds last night and it seems pretty fun and addictive. 

  

Overall, I had a lot of fun with this list and look forward to digging in.

Mr Do - 72,250

Super Dodgeball - 55,500

In The Hunt - 28,401  Finally made the high score board

Zoo Keeper - 74,500

Anteater - 5,580

Wonder Boy - 5,210

 

The reason I picked In The Hunt was for the graphics and it is such a difficult game that I wanted to see if we could own it. 

 

C.S.Q - I really liked Ninja Gaiden on the NES.  But brutally maddening.  I have attached a screenshot of the cocksucker I see in my nightmares.

In The Hunt (5th attempt): 30,300

 

Now I can say the Playstation game is true to the arcade - it looks exactly the same as far as I can tell, and definitely tough as hell!  This one seems slightly harder though (as one would expect)

Mr. Do (take 04): 39,700

feeling really rusty on this one!
