What exactly is the hit box for the big helicopter that gives power ups? Sometimes it goes down quickly and other times it won't go down even after a bunch of hits.

Sorry for double post, but just caught this.聽

When your gun is level 0-2, shoot the nose a handful of times, then get above it and shoot down on its upper back region. Itll blow up pretty quick.

When gun is fully upgraded, pepper the white聽portion as the parts are forming together. You can destroy it before its put together that way and collect 20k bonus instead of 10

Good advice. I was also having issue taking out the upgrade chopper about 20% of the time. I think the key is any damage you do to the parts as the unit is assemilating remains. So as soon as you see a component show up, start shooting it ASAP. I've never destroyed one before the unit finished forming, but I definitely think it helps to attack it as soon as you can.

I had lots of spare time, it was a short week for work and werewolf is slowish.聽 Vice project I will not have as much time 馃槈聽聽

I really wish I played this one more. I didn't care as much for the chopper mode because I sucked at it, but the jeep mode is a blast.

I mean, you can jump as a jeep, so there is that, but you don't have to unless you get into a bind, or those stupid robots or whatever that separate from the bottom half.聽聽

Also, level 5 seemed to be the most difficult for the jeep imo, especially the boss, it took me quite a few runs and then i practiced a bit, and then finally got a decent rythm down.

Game is still fun, but I almost wish they'd just forgot about the helicopter and based the levels more around the jeep. Like there could have been more platforming such as jumping over pits and stuff.

For those of you that think this game is "easy", getting 1,000,000 should be a piece of cake. I red that in level 4 and 6 (maybe 7), during the boss fights there is a seal or something that flies by. Shoot it to nab 500,000 points.

That's two seals combined for 1,000,000.

Well its funny you mentioned that. I had gotten 100k bonus a bunch on level 4 boss a bunch of times and have been playing all night to try to do that on one life and land over 400k. Finally acheieved it, but this time it was the 500k bonus. No idea what was different unless its coming in with more points. That was CRAZY.聽

And with that, @Jeevan聽and his jeep are vested.聽

Rules say no point-pressing at the bosses... not really clear if going for the bonuses on the bosses are considered point-pressing in the rules, but if not, then why make the rule?聽 Those bonuses are ridiculously more than you can get in an entire run outside of the bosses... oh well, I didn't play this game early in the week to be able to learn the game and bring this issue up, so congrats to the boss-bonus-getting-point-pressers!!!聽 馃檪

Not sure how that would be point pressing when Im just trying to beat the boss and that icon appears every time there. Not sure why it was 500k this time when its usually 100k.聽

If it somehow is, mods please let me know. I may still have photos of my 280k plus run that was up before that

Point pressing usually refers to where you can just keep destroying something indefinitely that gives points, like during boss fights where they they attack you with something that you can keep shooting for points.聽 I don't think of one time bonuses as point pressing.

Like I said, I didn't play the game enough to see what getting those bonuses entails, I'm just wondering how you would point-press on these bosses outside of getting those bonuses?聽 She made a rule about it, so is there another easy way to point-press these bosses?

I don't know if shooting the boss projectiles adds to score. I only reached the third boss so I don't know聽 if any later bosses have point pressing opportunities. Bea was under the impression that point pressing is possible on bosses even if it's not.

      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.

      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!
