@BeaIank The initial post says "Batman" and not "Batman Returns."  I know we all know what we're supposed to play, but I figure it'd be worth correcting for the day this thread becomes reference material 😛

BATMAN RETURNS: 87,100

Took so much f'n practice to get past the Organ Grinder, but I made it to 5-1 finally.  Now to focus on Pro Wrestling...

PRO WRESTLING: 3:26

Well, since I've done better on Giant Panther and Amazon, I should be able to trim this down even further.  Just a matter of stringing four good matches together.  Still, anything under 4 minutes to me is pretty solid.

EDIT: Although my time increased against Fighter Hayabusa, I think I made up for it through the other fights.  This may or may not be my last run, but I think this is a good bar to set...

Also, reserved for scores.

Fixed it. Thanks

Is there a consequence of falling through the floor, or is it simply a way to point press?  Also, is it possible to unintentionally fall?  If it is, I'd say a limit to the number of times would be acceptable, as having a run end due to an accident is not ideal, but point pressing should not be encouraged.

Anyway, I hit a wall that maybe @NESfiend could help with?  I can't figure out how to climb floors.  Been trying everything I can think of on the 2-2 fire escape but can't seem to figure out what to do.

Press select to change your weapon. Get to the batwire thing. Press up and b at the same time to shoot up toward the black space above elevators and it will propel you up

Edit: and yes, its definitely possible to fall in the holes unintentionally. I do it frequently.

Well, I fell through the floor twice to test how things would go, and @NESfiend already has a better score.

I wonder how many damn times the winner of this contest is going to have to do that little loop to seal his victory... sigh....  😢

Glad someone besides me is fighting against the 'hold scores til sunday' tournament culture here. Im on the board. Morbis is on the board. Lets see some others!

The thing about posting your score before Sunday is that it really doesn’t matter. If you post before Sunday its not your real score (as your either holding or working on a better score) and if it is your best score……well it still doesn’t matter 😂

That's what I've always said. A winning score posted on Day 1 is still gonna be a winning score. Just because everyone knows what to shoot for doesn't make them able to beat it.

It was a winning score but since you posted it Monday….well now it’s not a winning score on Sunday.

I think it was 2015 when I put up a random Sunday score right after the Wizards & Warriors contest was posted during halftime of the afternoon football game and somehow won even though I didn't play again the entire week. That was the biggest fluke win ever since I don't even like that game and just wanted to get a participation score in.
