@Gloves and @the_wizard_666 Bea wants everyone to only make one score post and then edit it when you get a new score so that she doesn't have to wade through 500 posts looking for people's top scores...

...and holy shit Gloves, you're already a ringer at this O_o

@BeaIank fyi its possible to point press infinitely on the 6th or so boss. I'm going to assume it's against the rules to do so, but it's not explicit right now so will you add that to the rules? The boss with the orange background consisting of 4 ground level bases is infinitely farm able if you just don't use bombs.聽

Yeah, I noticed that too, if you just shoot the blue projectile with your lasers and never shoot the pyramid with your missiles, you can score points all day long, but it takes forever.聽 Anyway, I've beaten your score Gloves, and considering that score was the culmination of 30 straight years of practice at your end, I'm just going to go ahead and consider this a job well done!聽 馃槣

I've never played this game prior to today (that I can recall), and I've put about an hour in.聽

That offer is for someone who I know I am better at with 99% of games.聽 I ain't stupid 馃槈

This is entirely fair.聽 I also don't dedicate ALL my free time to playing games, as I have other hobbies and interests as well.聽 But there's a few there that may end up getting me a free lunch or two 馃槢

Ive never played this game and keep hitting the damn Rs. I guess you have to memorize where they are at on each level. Ill get a participation score in tonight. I dont see a world where I really compete in this game, but who knows

It's definitely not your typical shooter where you just go in guns a'blazing and figure you'll dodge all projectiles till you see the credits screen.聽 You have to avoid like 50% of the power ups you see and you have to manage your E-meter so that you have enough for each boss encounter, on top of knowing which weapon you need to use on different bosses, and this is on top of all the other standard shmup stuff like not getting killed every two seconds.聽 It is for sure an interesting game, but not for the "please hold my hand so I can see the whole game" kind of gamer...

Giving up already?

For a bit.聽 My thumbs aren't built for shooters, and we're not allowed to use turbo, so I gotta rest.聽 This is why I say I suck at them - I have a hard time actually playing long enough to get good.聽 Stupid arthritis 馃槢聽 Also, I can't give up on something I never thought I'd win 馃槈

Just hold down B. I was tapping like crazy first few games. Holding down shoot works fine here.聽

      Hello and welcome, players!
      Be prepared, for this week you will have to rely on your fists, feet, knifes and machine guns to make through P.O.W.!
      This week will decide who will claim the crown to the Beat 'em up genre, proving they are the best bare hand fighter at VGS!
      @mbd39聽currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend聽with 22 points, Krunch is creeping really close to both of them with 21 points.
      The three of them are the only ones with a chance to claim the title!
      So, without further ado, here's the rules
      Play until Game Over No point racking If you score less than 20,000 points, be ready to take your picture at the Game Over screen (it doesn鈥檛 stay up long) If you score more than 20,000 points, start a new game to get your score Each extra life remaining after beating the game adds 5000 points to your score. Highest score wins GENRE: Beat 鈥楨m Up

      Ladies and gentlemen, we are BACK with the last round of games of our beloved VGS NES Weekly Contest!
      To decide who will wear the laurels and claim the fame of being the 2021 VGS NES Weekly Contest Sports champion, we have one epic game of brutal action, where basketball meets street brawling!
      ARE YOU READY FOR聽Nekketsu Street Basketball?
      The rules are below:
      Pick battle mode (2nd option in the game) Pick 1P mode Pick Nekketsu as your team (first team in the screen) Pick US Navy as your opponent (second team in the screen) Pick the VEGAS stage to play on (second stage to the left, with the slot machines icon) Take your picture at the end of the match. Highest score difference for the Nekketsu team wins Participation: Beat the second team
      @0xDEAFC0DEhas a very comfortable 4 points lead over @NESfiend, who is the only who can challenge him for the Sports title this year.
      For Nesfiend to win, he needs to win this week and hope @0xDEAFC0DE聽doesn't score over 6th place, since he will be tied on most wins, but loses on the 2nd tie breaker, most 2nd places.
      Will he be able to pull such a miracle to claim the crown? Time will tell!
