I voted for Superfly. The only game on that list that I don't suck at.
I wished I had a lot of time to play it though (too busy playing Space Giraffe on XBLA right now :) )

Voted for Znax as I've played that and it's not fast paced like the two shoot-em-ups. Why? I'm getting old and the reactions aren't as quick these days 8O

I have never played any of those so therefore I voted for Superfly :)
I will even actually have a game of whichever game gets picked - and I won't cheat or lie about my score honest :angel:

Wings of death for me. It's be ages since I played it so it'd be interesting to see how I do now as opposed to back then (which wasn't very good. At all). Esp using a keyboard (so, should need arise, I can grab a screen shot and not because my ste's up in the attic).

I said Znax. That little piece of GFA has provided me more gameplay hours than any commercial ST puzzle game. I'm decent at it too, but once I see other people's scores I probably won't think so anymore :wink:

For me it was a toss-up between Wings of Death or Superfly. In the end I went for Wings of Death.

So it's Saturday and the poll has now ended! We' d like to thank you all for your participation in the vote, we are very happy and motivated by the outcome. 36 people in Atari Forum and Atari Age took the time to participate and we would like to see you all posting your highscores.
Here are the combined results:

Wings of Death : 10 votes
Znax : 06 votes
Superfly : 12 votes

Bubble Bobble : 06 votes

One of the votes for Znax in AA was placed by me and by mistake so it doesn't count :)

As apparent Superfly by Reservoir Gods will be the game we will contest in the next two weeks. Gentlemen and ladies, boot your Ataris (real or emulated).

I was not sure if i should vote for Wings Of Death or Superfly. These are both excellent games! As well as Znax and BubbleBobble are, of course!!!
But i decided to choose Wings Of Death as i am *slightly* better in this game (and i have gorgeous memories of this one when i was young and heard that jawdropping Introsound for the first time!). ;)

Well, the goal of the competition is not so much as to be the highest scorer but to beat the one in front of you. And since we are talking about a gaming season we will all have plenty of chances to get Kradd ;)
