To ensure that all the games you download here work as they are supposed, use them only with the recommended versions of MAME available directly from our website under the 'emulators' tab. These are specially modified versions of the program, and more than 90 percent of the games won’t work at all if you use them with the regular MAME versions downloaded from elsewhere!

This game is tested and working perfectly with our emulator version MAME32, you can download from section emulators.

NOTICE!!! I always check the game files myself before I put them on the website, to see whether they work or not. The basic idea behind this project is to provide people both with a working emulator and games they can run on it at the same time. Unlike some other sites that offer you hundreds of games but none of them really work, I can guarantee you that all the games presented here work like a charm. All you have to do is to use the correct version of MAME emulator, both of which are also available on our website. Whether the game is supposed to run under 32bit or 64bit MAME is always explicitely stated in the game’s description.

 A quick guide for you:

step 1: download the game and put the downloaded archive to the ‘roms’ folder within your MAME root directory

step 2: after launching the emulator, press F5 to refresh the game database

step 3: double click on the game’s title in the list to start the emulation

step 4: once the game starts, press ‘5’ on your keyboard (the one above your regular keys, not the one on the numpad) to activate the ‘coin trigger’ and then press ‘1’ (again, not on the numpad) to start ‘player one’ game. (note: these can be both remapped through the MAME settings tab, where you can also find mapping for the second player controls).

 And since I spent my free time on this website, bringing you all these fully functional games, so that you too can have some retro themed fun, any comments will be much appreciated.

Have fun! Your Gbit.

Description Rambo III

I love rail shooters. I really do. And given the fact that Rambo III wasn’t that much of a good movie to begin with in the first place, the arcade incarnation of Rambo III is actually quite an entertaining rail shooter. Released in 1988 by Taito, the game plays pretty much like your prototypical third-person, joystick controlled rail shooter. In fact, I’d like to think of it as a kind of ‘down-to-earthed’ predecessor of Spinal Breakers (1990) without the ability to shoulder-roll and dodge the incoming bullets. And that’s exactly where Rambo III gets a little bit tricky. The thing is, that the game keeps somewhat mixing the genre of a rail-shooter with that of manic shooters, where the player has to evade continuous waves of incoming projectiles to survive. Unlike in manic shooters, though, where the ‘aim-point’ is identical with your hitbox (i.e. the sprite of your craft), in Rambo III the hitbox (that is the sprite of John Rambo) moves from side to side at the bottom of the screen, while the aimpoint moves independently in two dimensions across the whole scene. So, basically, you have to keep track of two different parts of the screen, and let me tell you, it’s not always as easy as it sounds. Now, the controls for Rambo III are pretty basic: an 8-way joystick (d-pad, arrow keys in default) and two buttons, one for your main weapon and one for explosives (arrows, missiles etc.). The game offers you both one-player and co-op two-player mode (but since I haven’t tested that myself, and since I didn’t do my homework this time, I can’t really tell you whether playing in two-player mode changes the gameplay in any way, ie. increases the number of enemies or the number of their hit-points etc.). Of course, quite traditionally, you can also pick up various power-ups during the gameplay, which will give you access to more powerful versions of your default arsenal, or replenish your health or ammo reserves. All and all, if you like rail-shooters, you’re certainly going to have a good time with Rambo III (no puns intended). The visuals and the sounds are both pretty much up-to-date with the date of its release. The gameplay is fun and even though the whole Rambo III experience is a rather short one, it’s something that a committed shooter fan should definitely not miss out. Note: if you can’t get the game to work under 64bit MAME, rename the filename of the archive to rambo3u.zip [veo]
