I am at 10 !! Megamania, Activision patch #10

I never really heard of this game, and would have a bad impression about it, but it was recommended, and I have no other Activision game I could beat around, so I tried it. And my guts were totally wrong, Megamania is a crazy shoot them up that I really liked. Because each wave is so different in the shape of enemies  their attach pattern or tactics, it feels like it could have been 8 individual games combined into one. I really enjoyed it, even tough the patch score (45 000) was easy to reach. Also, another super colorful game, one of these I could not have enjoyed with the crappy 8 colors of the Secam games. Enemies are taken from regular household items (tires, dice, hamburgers, bow ties etc...). a little bit like what micro machines did 15+years later with driving game. Like for Kaboom!, there is a limited amount of lives you can get, so the tactic is the same, lose  life just before you are going to get a free one, this allows to continue for a little longer on an easier wave.

So I reached 10 Activision patches, and I still have Enduro to beat at home. I order some decathlon, Oink!, chopper command, River raid and others for my next games to beat. I really enjoy building this collection of Activision games in my retro game library, can't wait to see all the colorful boxes.
51410 points, that all you can see and that's enough for my patch #10
