1. I am...
... Super Mappy, born 1964, living in South Central Ohio in the US. My nickname
"Super Mappy" comes from one of my favourite games of all time: "Mappy".
Being a video game fanatic I usually connect a lot of things I do in real life with
video games. When I drive up a road the games "Outrun", "Pole Position",
"Virtua Racing" usually come to mind.
2. I got into MAME...
... around the beginning of 2000 when I started searching for any info on another one
of my favorite games "Crazy Climber" after seeing someone on the news who
likes to climb up the side of buildings. Looking for a PC version of
the game, I searched for "Crazy Climber" and found a couple of fan pages, along with a few
links to the old Atari 2600 version and something I'd never seen or heard
of before... called "MAME". This was when all ROM links where on
I was extremely pleased to see that Mappy, Super Cobra and all the
classics I used to play on the Commodore 64 where there. I stayed up WAY
past my bedtime that night!
3. I love playing...
Mappy - I've always loved that little mouse and his quest to regain the
stolen treasure. A simple yet fun game.
Crazy Climber - the double joystick action of this game makes it a blast
to play. Ironically, I'm acrophobic.
Super Cobra - I always did like helecopters.
Dig Dug - a game that I used to play for an hour at a local
Metal Slug - the whole series. Great platform game: run and shoot, who could ask
Super Street Fighter II - and all the clones and sequels. The first
fighting game I really got into, and I still have a big crush on Chun-Li.
Berzerk - I held the record high score for this game at a local arcade
before it closed down.
4. I would like to say to Nicola and the MAME team...
Thanks a ton for reviving the good old days of the local arcades in my
town. All though they are all gone they will live forever in my cabinet
powered by MAME, and with all of the excellent memories I have of them.
Long live MAME and all of the MAME team!
