I should have taken a photo, but I ended a run with 0001 km left on level 20. Had a really good score going. My thumb is about ready to fall off. Probably about done with this one. If I could just have my right thumb and left thumb switch places for a while

I am effing disappointed. The 1st place so far has around 100k points less than my PB in this game and I fucking SUCK at video games.
No one even crossed the 300K threshold! The hell you all doing?

You know how I felt during Marble Madness. No other score over 170k? Come on guys.

busy hosting games and working OT.  Sorry oh great @BeaIank we are not worthy.  Please forgive us poor plebs.  We do agree that this this a gem that needed a physical release in the US.  In fact, I plan on getting copies of this and quarth since we have played both and I enjoyed both.  Now to get someone in Japan to send it to me 🤔

This game is fun, but it's such a bummer when you get back to the third loop and then get destroyed. Runs take so long. But again I think it might be that I'm playing on PC on an emulator that's the problem.

I imagine a lot of folks upon catching an initial glance at this game's frame rate (which of course cannot compare to present day tech.), would dismiss it as primitive, but a good marathon like this week is sufficient to learn just how well designed the game is.

Reminds me in a way of playing original Dragon Warrior a few years back for the first time in probably 20 - 25 years, and wondering at first if I would have as much fun as I did in the heyday.  I was pleasantly surprised how well designed that game was and how much fun it still was.

Anyway, Congrats NESfiend!

Nice score! It was a hell of a battle! Fun trading blows through the day. I quit after that run, but nervously put the game back in later when I saw you were right there with my score. That game really was badass. Its as fair as an nes game gets really.

Thanks, I'm glad I at least did well enough to stave off any further Bea-ratement of my score, lol.

Meant to ask what level you got to? I got to 32. I blew that one hard immediately, so its hard to judge if it were doable. Level 31 came down to last second for me, so that loop is probably just out of my league.

I don't have a perfectly definitive answer for that question.  On my high run was the only time I didn't manage to pause it before time ran out.  One of my previous runs ended on level 32 and this last one was 32 or 33 I think but I'm uncertain.  I thought I was going to have enough almost for sure but the level gave me 30-some seconds with something like 650km...   ...I wonder what the world record would be on this one....

Id be willing to bet the ACTUAL world record is Bea's PB if she were to submit it. Seems like youd have to be really inhuman to get to 350 and I think she got 375. Thats beyond crazy with how fast the 4th loop gets and how little time is on the clocks compared to the distance you have to travel.

      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 currently leads the Beat 'em up scoreboard, with 23 points. Right behind him we have @NESfiend 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’t 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 ‘Em 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 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 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!
