Hello and welcome ladies and gentlemen!
Are you all READY? I hope you are, for this week we are PLAYING WITH TANKS!

Let's watch our skilled combatants tackle a very fun Famicom game this time. They better be ready for BATTLE CITY!

The rules are pretty simple this time around:

  • Play till stage 51 or till game over, whichever happens first
  • Take your picture at the very start of stage 51 or at the high score screen if you game over
  • Highest score wins
  • In case of a stage 51 tie, remaining lives will define the winner

Tank on, players!

The contest ends Sunday, 07/04/21 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.

Man, I loooooove this game!  I've never made it to Stage 51 on 1 player before, on account of it being ten times harder without a second player to guard the base, but this week should be a dandy!

Reserved for score...

SCORE EDIT #1 - Man, I am real rusty.  You leave your base unprotected for 30 seconds... I think I was at around Stage 10: 52,800

SCORE EDIT #2 - Gettin' better.  Made it to Stage 26, so half way to 51 anyway: 139,800

No World Games score?

 

Yeah I just decided to skip World Games because it's not really my thing. I'm gonna try not to skip anything else this season.

I hope I do well enough at Double Dragon to make up for it.

I'm in the same boat.  I just didn't find the time to familiarize myself with the controls and I wasn't motivate either.  But yeah, I don't want to miss any more either if I can help it.

 

RESERVED FOR MY SCOREBOARD.

I take it this means your DD skill is on par with your tetris and marble madness expertise? Maybe it is good Im going to be trial buried that week. Probably just get my ass kicked anyhow.

I could never beat that boss with the gun. The very concept of one guy on the whole game getting a machine gun when everyone else fights ninja style always made my blood boil. But that gripe aside, one of the best games and series of all time. I could lose sleep debating about which is better, dd1 or dd2

Combat is fun.
Warlords is fun.
This sadistic fusion of Combat and Warlords is ... not for me.

But my personal goal was to beat the default high-score, so at least I accomplished that much haha.

I like this game but it's a textbook example of "harder than it looks."

I don't like the instant game overs though.

For sure - I was pumped to get this one when I stocked-up on Famicom carts for the contest season, and I didn't expect the gameplay to be so brutal haha. A typical dichotomy in arcade-style games like this.

It's definitely growing on me, though.

Glad I finally got it fired up and got to try it. Ive never been good at these top down tanks games. One of my few bad events on wii play. Respect them though. They are generally lots of fun and the capture the flag concept of this one is definitely intriguing. Travelling for a week or so, but maybe I catch a break and get to play around with it some more.

Yeah, the issue is that the game really is built for 2-player co-op, so having to try and "do it all" for a contest like this is really tough... I am digging the challenge, though...

@BeaIank

Can we get a sneak peak at the dr mario rules? Wondering if they will be evil...

I ain't got them yet. Last several weeks have been hell.
I was to record something for @Crabmaster2000 but just couldn't find time to do it. I am not even practising SFV to keep competing due to the lack of time.
I've been making stuff on the spot for rules.

      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!
