...Almost forgot, the one undeniable flaw this game has is the ability for Riki to get stuck on things like Walls and Rocks etc. 聽Bad way to get shot up or scrolled off the screen.

I consider this as him having trouble climbing over inconvenient obstacles. It's never really been an issue for me personally. Could be worse, e.g. many shrimps have you die immediately upon touching any such obstacle.

I could entertain that as far as the rocks maybe eg. the rock has a cleft in which he is stuck, but the same problem results when Riki is pressed up against a smooth grey wall sticking out from the side in the desert levels and its suddenly impossible to move him left or right. 聽Its typically not hard to get out of, just back up a pinch and you're good again provided Riki hasn't been hit in the first moment or two.

Similar here, its very rarely a problem for me, but I had one run this week where Riki became completely stuck, unable to move in any direction and he got scrolled off screen for a death. 聽It was really weird and I've never seen that happen before in the many times I've played.

Here's a terrifying thought: 聽Dino Riki Contest - 1 Life / No Wings / w/reprogrammed Silver Surfer Style No Touch Obstacles everywhere.

I would totally play that game!

Here's the one time I beat Skinny at a shooter. http://archive.nes.science/nintendoage-forums/nintendoage.com/forum/messageview6eae.html?catid=31&threadid=174575

BTW, Dino Riki isn't really a shooter, it's "action."

Funny thing, looking at the lists on the leaderboard, Dino Riki should be under shooters, Battle City should be under action, and Galaga should be under arcade.聽 Go figure.
