The MAME Action Replay 'Rules For irobot' Page
RULES FOR 'irobot'
You can enter a transporter once with 1 credit.
WARPING RULES FOR MARP SUBMISSIONS:
Allowed : warp 5 levels maximum.
if you enter transporter on level 1, you can warp to level 1-5.
if you enter transporter on later level, you can warp a maximum of 2 levels.
Not allowed : warp more than 5 levels.
That means YOU MUSTN'T USE ANY COMBINATION KEY WHEN YOU ENTER THE TRANSPORTER, like :
entering transporter on level 1 while pressing "start1 + start2" (warp to level 1-10).
entering transporter on level 1 while pressing "start1 + start2 + button1" (warp to level 1-15).
entering transporter on level 1 while pressing "start1 + start2 + button1 with view 2.0" (warp to level 1-20).
Not allowed too : warp back to level 0 (Doodle City - The Ungame).
using this trick, you could play some easy levels twice, and get better score as shown there.
Also be sure dipswitch "DEMO MODE" = "OFF".
If "demo mode" is "on", you can enter transporter on level 1 and warp to level 1-79 !
Good for training but of course forbidden.
No problem if you use MAME 0.36 or later : "off" is the default.
(some inputs made with older m36b11 has been DQ because default was "on" with this version)
Note that this game has been used with the rules above in K5.
Some infos on the game there.
