I have always believed that Battletoads was a shameless ripoff of tmnt (as far as the characters go, not the beat em up style). They look like they should have been shredder creations in secret of the ooze. 

I can see why people regard it as a great game despite the creative theft. Its very unique for a beat em up. But I have never really been able to get into it for whatever reason. I got this and Battletoads/DD around the same time and always liked that one better. At some point I got good enough to get thru the speeder jumps in level 3, but quickly lost interest after that. 

The scores here are insane and its quickly wednesday. Kind of week I could put in tons of effort for like 7th. Ill get a participation score up before long and watch the masters battle it out. Rooting for that @mbd39dude.

It's a long and varied game and most people don't see beyond stage 3. It really is good. You should give it another go.

I know I can do better. Most people probably know how cheap Blag is if he hits you while you're lying down.

Since I have this game, I played it using my NES instead of an Emulator.

Okay I made it further in Terra Tubes. Duck killed me in the last section. Then I practiced that entire section using the 1up. Hopefully I'll be getting out of the tubes soon.

I see orange fish rng as being the biggest problem. So easy to die to it.

Good luck on rat race

Yeah. And nerves will be a factor after getting so far on a single life. I don't want to choke and have a stupid death to a gas blower or something.

I'm glad that I'm getting more consistent at the earlier levels. Like at first the end of turbo tunnel was killing runs. Normally not a big deal to lose a life or two there, but this has forced me to learn to do it consistently.

You got this, more practice and you win.

Battletoads is like the Zeppelin 1 of video games.  It may be a ripoff, but it’s the most original ripoff ever made

Man, I love this game and I've 1cc'd it before with only 2 deaths.  But I've had literally no time for games in the last three weeks due to moving and it looks like I'm gonna have to "phone in" a shitty score at the eleventh hour for a third week in a row.  Ah wells, it is what it is...

I made it through Terra Tubes without a death. But unfortunately I had one stupid death in Intruder Excluder so it was just a practice run at that point.

In my Rat Race practice I'm having an issue where I'm not always bouncing the rat against the wall with my beadbutt but instead helping him by sending him down the hole.  I used to be so much better at the third rat. And this is a great way to get the glitch because then it becomes an extremely tight race and the rat disappears through the wall instead of falling down when you kick the bomb.

I think I'm getting Rat Race back down. I made it back to Clinger Winger in my practice and... um, yeah. I don't know if it's my controller or if it's rust but I was having a terrible time.

But right now I'm just going for around 635k then we'll see what happens.

Clinger winger is pixel perfect so you have to tap as you turn. That one is gonna take you a while... Just kidding, use the pause trick before each turn. So the pixel perfect turns aren't as hard.

I am giving it a shot, but dont have enough time or skill to really get anywhere. I would like to beat stage 3 though. I didnt remember how long it is. Now I am doubting that I ever did beat it. Watching video, I dont remember the very last portion. 

Whats the trick with the ramps with big gaps? I do remember being able to get passed those, but can't remeber how and the second one is kicking my ass

The white ramps you don't do anything. The blue ramps you have to jump.

When you get to the little islands with the exclamation points, stay low (they're wider at the bottom) and don't press anything besides jump to hop from island to island. People tend to have trouble with that part.

I made it through Terra Tubes and Rat Race without a death! But unfortunately it was just a practice run because I'd already died a couple times to Robo Manus. I miscalculated where he was going to land and splat. Man fuck that guy.

First time playing this as of a couple hours ago. I like it, but just didn't have the time this week. Just could not get through the last section in one go. It's a shame because I did practice getting through the next two warps.

563,500 (503,500 + 60,000)

Maybe a disappointing score to some, but this was the best I could pull off.  I was able to beat every stage deathless in practice, but stringing it altogether is really tough.  I do want to do a pure deathless run someday without warps, and now at least I know I can.  I decided to do one run warpless, with regular play, just to hit the 500K mark and that's the run I kept.  (This run died in Karnath's Lair lol.) Couldn't make it past Robo-Manus in an actual run of this with warps.  But anyway I usually have a death or two in Terra Tubes, and I'm not great at The Revolution or Dark Queen yet as far as no deaths.  I did get pretty consistent no-deathing Rat Race and Clinger Winger though, that's good at least!

      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!
