Welcome brave warriors and brace yourselves for this week we reach the unreachable final frontier!
Our skilled players will have to prove their worth by conquering SPACE!
So ready your ships, players, load your weapons and set off at light speed!

This week, you will all have to master ALPHA MISSION!
Here's the rules you will abide to:
 

  • Play till your last life or till you loop the game once.
  • Once you reach SYD x 1 lives, pause the game at the start of the stage and take your picture
  • You are not allowed to play your last life. You must pause the game, take your picture and end your run.
  • Refer to the following line should you loop the game before you reach SYD x 1 lives
  • ONE shall be the number thou shalt loop, and the number of the looping shall be one. Two shalt thou not loop, neither loop thou zero, excepting that thou then proceed to one. Thirteen is right out.
  • Once the number one, being the first number, be reached, pause thy game and take thy picture. Thou run ends there.
  • So, your run ends after you beat area 12.
  • Should thou play a stage more than once, thou score shall be snuff out by the holy hand grenade and thus deemed invalid.
  • If you pick the R power up, your run ends there.
  • You must use missiles to kill the final boss. No point pressing on him allowed. JUST USE MISSILES AT HIM!
  • You can reset a boss fight by going into the special ships selection screen. Don't use this glitch to fight a boss more than once. If you accidentally reset a boss fight after beating him once, your run is over. Thou must kill a boss only once
  • Thou art forbidden to point press on the 6th boss. If thou point press there, I shall release The Beast of Caerbannog upon thee.
  • Participation: 10,000
  • Genre: Shooter

The contest ends Sunday, 05/02/21 at 11 PM VGS time.  Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun.

what about the backwards warps? i think they are "z's" i cant remember? you can manipulate the progress of the game.

its "R" for reverse i suppose. it warps you back.

Amended the rules to specify that you can only play each stage ONCE!

"R" warps you back in the same stage. you could play the first stage for......ever.

That counts as playing the same stage more than once.
Still, added a rule that picking the R power up ends your run.

Some pages are missing in the threads though.

You can also search GoCollect for old threads.

Another issue is that boss fights can be reset.

This is the rule from the 2015 contest: "You can reset a boss fight by going into the special ships selection screen. Don't use this glitch to fight a boss more than once. If you accedentally reset a boss fight after beating him once, your run is over."

Added this rule to the first post.
