Has Pink Sweets 1.00 been cleared without infinite lives?
« on: April 28, 2018, 10:29:08 AM »
Has Pink Sweets 1.00 been cleared without infinite lives and does a replay exist? I assume a TAS must have been done at some point, but I don't know where to look.

There's been a video of it online since forever, linked in the strategy guide on shmups.

I know a handful of people who have done it. But surely there are many more out there.

The main problem is the boss fights in the last few stages take forever. So you have to sit there and bomb over and over for a half hour and hope you don't mess up. Ver 1.01 is much better in this regard.

Honestly if you don't do the infinite lives thing in arcade mode the best mode in the PCB version is score attack. But otherwise for all other modes I'd rather play 1.01.

The most impressive non-infinite lives clears are done by the Garegga-god himself, Yamanaka Masato: https://youtu.be/M7pDXAZny-4

First clear is with Meidi&Midi and the second with Shasta. Both runs show numerous techniques throughout, you won't find anywhere else. Very creative play overall, particularly for his innovative use of the rose hips. But what else can you expect from Yamanaka-kun.

Big thanks Plasmo for the links!  :righton:
Especially the Shasta one as I want to play with her. (Her ship design is so awesome, always looks scary when she appears in Ibara.)
