Good to see Hammer Boy (Dinamic) finally emulated. Kudos to the various contributors involved.


The intro/attract music is good and the segments (shown below) made me laugh when watching the video clip. The chief part with saying "howe" and the voice-over trying to say "Stage Two" as if the person was dealing with a cold and a stuffy nose at same time. I had to have been laughing for a minute or two when watching those two segments.

I probably would have walked by Hammer Boy and played Bosconian, Xevious, Elevator Action, or Marble Madness instead had Hammer Boy been out in arcades during 1980s era.

When first seeing Hammer Boy entry many years earlier on Tribble's unMAMEd...

...it looked interesting seeing the screen snap (sort of reminded me of Broderbund's Ancient Art of War) that it had been teasing me over the years while it has been on unMAMEd over the many years that this looks to be a an awesome game once it is found and supported.


And then seeing video of gameplay in action...it is same reaction as Otto's (Kevin Kline) character from the movie A Fish Called Wanda yelling "..Disappointed!"

I blame Bobby for creating that tease. *kidding*


Maybe the entries should be like the old text description entry of Planet Probe where it is so underwhelming that when game is finally found and emulated, it is actually better than the various text-only description entries on unMAMEd.
