    My first game of NES Jackal went pretty well. I completed 2/6 levels. Cool version of the awesome arcade game.

    Yeah, Jackal feels great in 60 Hz!

    The stage 2 music reminds me a bit of Golden Axe.

    Reached level 3/6. You have 3 continues.

    I freakin' love this game. Everything about it. I'm not great at it, though, I am in so much trouble in stage 3, especially the battleship boss.
  • 7008 
    Reached level 4/6. Combining machine gun and grenades or rockets made short work of the battleship turrets.
  • 7009 
    Reached level 5/6. It took 7 grenades to take out the big helicopter boss.
  • 7010 
    Reached level 6/6. The level 5 base boss wasn't difficult at all.
  • 7011 
    The turreted base in level 6 was too much to deal with. I'm going to get it at some point, though...
  • 7017 
    After looking at some maps from videogamemaps.net, I think I should avoid the heavily defended base in Stage 6 and just go to the right instead.

    Dammit! So close to the end of level 6. Helicopters and spread shot turrets are the main problems for me right now.

    Two times more I made it to level 6, now playing on the mednafen emulator to be able to stream the whole thing to YouTube. The last attempt went well, and I reached the final boss. But it was too much. Maybe tomorrow.

    Bjørn was visiting, and we played a game of Jackal on the old NES.

    Another good NES game that Thomas and I tried, but it crashed. I wonder if I should buy a top-loader NES or something?

    I bought a new NES on dba.dk and picked it up in Gentofte. I'm currently testing it out, and it seems very stable so far. The guy I bought it from was using it for world record score attempts, so that makes sense. I played the 3 first levels of Jackal, worked perfectly.

    I just made a RetroAchievements account and tried playing Jackal on the RANes emulator. It's a mod of FCEUX with support for achievements. I got 4 achievements from playing through the first level.

    OK, Jackal works on the MiSTer. This is going to work out, I think.
