I must be destined to never All Clear this game. ;_;

Icarus - 43,833,600 - Stage 5-2 - (PS2)



No-miss to near the end of stage4, and lost one life cheaply. Got to the start of the final battle with five lives in reserve, and through inexperience with the patterns, lack of confidence, and general stupidity, proceeded to lose every single one of them. Eventually got caned by the final attack pattern.

Time to play stage5-2 in Simulation Mode for a few days.

New personal best. Not really a massive improvement, though.
At least I'm back within the 40mil mark. Replay recorded.

That just hurts.  

I think I played my best stage 1-3 ever, followed by my worst 4 - 5-2 ever.

GaijinPunch - 41,391,330 - ALL

I'd post a pic but I'm sure I'll beat this one soon.   I pissed away 3 lives in the gayest of places.

Did a quick run and got a score of 4.791.860, my credit being put out of its misery on the stage 2 boss :p

Then I did another run and got 20.579.420, finally snuffing it on St5-2. Not sure how I got that high since I didn't even hit first extend until the very end of level 2 :shock:. With a bit of practice, maybe I won't finish last :laugh:

thx!:)
my end bonus was 3 lifes, 6 life container, 0 gold & 0 shild. (end bonus 6 mil and 5,7 from the stage)
if i had done a suicide before i finished the boss the end bonus would be 6,6 mil. (full shild give you more end bonus than a life)

here are the bonus you get for finish the game:
1.000.000 for every remaining life (max 6mil)
500.000 per life container(max 3mil)
16.000 per % shild energie (max 1.6mil)
1.000 per gold (max 1mil)

I need to do some math.  I think I got a 6.5ish end bonus when I cleared it w/ 3 hearts (which is 2 remains, right?)
3 mil for containers, 2 mil for lives.   I had like 100 or so gold, and 25% shield.  I should've died, but I don't think it makes that big of a difference.

Are you consistantly getting the extra life at the end of stage three? I remeber this was the biggest hurdle for me to cross. Before this I was consistantly getting about 10 million, and dying early stage 4 with Agega. However, I read the strats on Shmups, watched the superplays, and practiced my green gem collecting on stage three, even using up all my bombs to get that life. Within 2 or three weeks (and several hours of practice a day) my score had shot up from 10 to 25 million, and it was all because of getting that extra life, because it allowed me to hit the second extend at 14 million.

Of course the only real strat is to practice shit loads. With Ageha, there's a lot of room for improvisation, due to his high speed, but with Tateha, you've really got to have those patterns licked. Practice every day and you'll deffo have a score you can be proud of :D

yeah your end bonus of 6,5 mil is right.

3 lives = 3 mil
6 containers =3 mil
100 gold = 100k
25% shild = 400k
total 6,5 mil

with a suicide before finishing the boss it would be 6,6 mil.

Hey, I thought we had til the end of March to post a score? :D I'll be pretty much learning this from scratch anyway, so I wouldn't expect anything like an ALL. Been too buried in ESP2 lately to start memorising a new game. You will get a score though.

11,117,340 is what I managed to get after a few goes this week.
Sorry there's no pic but the score didn't seem high enough to warrant it. :laugh:
I think it was largely luck as I'm so focused on Futari in my gaming time (especially now that I found a decent superplay to get tips from) that switching shooters just does my head in. I doubt I'll manage much better to be honest but you never know ;)

jpj - 32,409,010 - All

it seems impossible for me to reach stage 5-1 with no deaths.  i always choke on that stage 4 boss  :mad:
and died *twice* in 5-2 during the level itself, after having my gold counter at 1k  :whyioughtta:

Next credit: no-miss to 5-1, start the stage with about 32mil, start fumbling the run at the turrets. No ALL.
Frustration.
Time to take five, and have a cuppa.

EDIT: Can you downgrade my user rank back to "Credit Feeder", EOJ? I kinda like that one. ^_-
