I definitely recommend trying to 1CC on your cab or MAME, fowlskins. It's basically the same feeling you get from successfully speedrunning a game. It feels good to know you are so good at that game that you can dominate it so hard lol. My best advice is to just start with a game that you've played more than anything else and go from there. Provided of course that it's a game you could reasonably finish on 1 credit :)

Even if it means starting with say 5 credits and learning new stuff along the way and improving to the point where you only need 1 credit. The only games I have ever 1CC'd on MAME are 1v1 fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter 2, and that's why I have such huge respect for Max because he does games that I wouldn't be comfortable trying to 1CC. Yet... :P (I'd like to 1CC Haunted Castle at some point)

Thanks, Max. It's been a long time since I played the Mega Drive version of Golden Axe, but as I recall it, the last two skeletons who aid Death Adder are actually immortal, which makes the fight a real pain in the neck.

There's some cracking videos on this thread. Golden Axe and Captain America and the Avengers are probably two of my favourite coin-ops of all time.

I started a Youtube Channel in August where I try and One Credit a variety of old titles. It started as an argument over whether it was possible to beat the Legion of Doom on Wrestlefest and then just kind of grew from there really.

I'm always after new games to try and beat and there's videos out every Wednesday so if any of you good people have any ideas of games you'd like to see completed, or if you've got any feedback on any of the videos then shoot me a reply.

Hey BenCQ, nice to meet you.

What about Rastan? That would be a nice game to beat!

Nice to meet you too my friend.

I legitimately LOVE Rastan. It's absolutely solid but I think there's definitely the potential to beat it.

Back early on with the channel I did Taito Champion Wrestler and I beat Rastan in that pretty early, which is handy really because he's really hard if you get him later on.

Right this has got me motivated, I'm going to have a look at this later!!!

Vigilante - Arcade - One Credit Clear

Vigilante - Arcade - One Credit Clear

Also I tried to find one of my videos on a game that hadn't already been featured on this thread and there aren't many but here's one.
It's Vigilante which was a great deal of fun to beat, even if the collision detection on the last boss is awful!

I loved your Vigilante video man, I played this game many times before but the bosses are cheap as hell so I never made it very far. Obviosly I never made it to the final boss, so I didn't know how bad the hit detection box is! Incredible! it's like you have to hit a single pixel in that huge sprite!
I loved the informative comments at the begining of the video, I always enjoy having info about composers and what not. You are good at this, I hope to see you beat another arcade game soon!
