Score Whore Challenge: Shaolin’s Road

Microsoft’s Game Room went up yesterday, which is chalk full of interesting ways to spend money, and cheap emulated versions of old arcade favorites. While I would usually be jumping at the chance to delve into old stuff like this, I’m really not all too impressed with some of the emulation quality Game Room offers.

Comparisons were made with an old classic, Shao-lin’s Road, which lead to disappointment. So, out of protest, and in the interest of delving into an old favorite, a few of us have decided to jam through the game again. Only this time, we’re doing it through a capable platform: MAME. Throughout the next month, I’m going to score whore with Shao-lin’s Road in the hopes of achieving a healthy score to compare with others.

Anyone can join in too, and there are no restrictions on which platform you want to use. If you have an original machine, aside from hating your face, I’d love to see some shots of the cabinet in action. Submit scores via screenshot here in the comments section, or at GUG.

H/T – ECM at Waxing for the awesome idea, and ManekiNeko at GRB for sparking the whole investigation.
