To view the results of a poll quickly I always click the "comments" link. Isn't there a better way? (like a link for "results").
btw. the screen is messed up when adding a comment. CSS mistake

Uhm, you don't see the result on the frontpage and after you voted? It's on the right of the frontpage.

As to view results before you vote, there is the way you use, or you can go to Community > Polls in themenu. But of course you shouldn't let your vote be influenced by the results Wink

In what way? I don't see anything strange.

There is a NES version of Maze of Galious but it's not so good.
Usas seems to be a 'forgotten' game and that's a pity too.

Yes, but without the details (how many voters per item). Wink

The Maze of Galious of course, it was damn fun and amazing for running on MSX1 only!

Usas was well done, but no surprise here since it was for MSX2 and up, however what it really KILLED the game was that KIND of ending! At least to me.

I would be really pissed if after all that work would watch such ending!

What really makes the difference to MOG's favour, is the end of level bosses - I think Usas is a bit boring on that aspect rolling the same five bosses through all the stages.

Still, I have had a great fun playing both of these great games. It's a bit strange to think that I played Usas just first time about a year and half ago and MOG I've played back in the 80's. It says a lot about how good game Usas also is when it just isn't all about nostalgia for me. Smile

I voted for Usas. I remember that back then, I spent much more time playing Usas than Maze of Galious. The game gave me much joy and, to be honest, an equal amount of frustration. (I have many times urged Wit and Cles to walk faster: come on, hurry up!) But I managed to finish the game. The graphics of the game are great.

By the way: my all time favorite Konami platform still is Vampire Killer.

Well, there are some hotspots in the game (or at least one: Cles rolling on a ladder) where you can grab returning (X)-coins quickly. Spend some ten minutes on that, and you can expand the speeds and jumps to very acceptable levels.

stage 1 - level 2 - one screen to the right from the start.. ladder on the left side Smile or you could just put MoG in slot 2.. or you can use the trainer in openMSX (or blueMSX)
