I did finish the game with exactly 50,000 points once completely by accident. I haven't tried it myself, but it does appear possible to finish the first level in the 75,000 range.

The Wizard...

It may be possible for you DD guys, but I'll be lucky to hit 50,000 at all.

Am I correct presuming that the repeating levels are fair game?

Also, is backing an enemy into a wall and beating on them considered a glitch or not?

I have been assuming that repeating levels is NOT allowed. 

I have also been assuming that backing the enemy is allowed, but I havent been able to execute it. Tried for 10-15 minutes to figure it out and just drained my life. Got frustrated, started over and said screw that tactic

Pretty sure repeating levels is allowed as long as it doesn't reset your health/timer. Running down the timer to point press is acceptable.  But you can't exit and re-enter areas.

My current score (232k) uses no repeating of levels or backing enemies.

So for example, if you beat up the two big bastards on mission 3, but dont go into the caves, it doesn't reset the timer if you walk right and end up back at the beginning of the level? I was assuming it had to. 

When I was a kid, I didnt know to go into those caves. Was totally oblivious to that. I thought the game only had 3 missions and mission 3 just repeated until it killed you. I thought I had played through second run and got all the way back to those big bastards. That seems like a lot to do without additional time.

No, that should be fine because it doesn't reset the timer. You just can't exit and re-enter areas to reset your health/timer.

500k might be possible but it won't be me. I got 300k when we played this last time. (No idea what I'll get this week.)

 

I got a run in before the Reds game. I could probably take a shot at 300k if I had more time, but that's likely all I've got for this week.

Yeah right.  Before the end of the first level, no doubt.

This was a fun target. I wont win the week or even finish the game. But being a huge wizard fan, 50k on level 1 is cool to see. Couldnt get photo til start of level 2.

      This week we will see who will be crowned the VERY FIRST VGS NES Weekly Contest Racing champion!
      Right now, the dispute has @NESfiend with 30 points and a very comfortable lead of 5 points over @PII, who has 25 points. With 22 points, @Dr. Morbis has no chance to take the crown from Nesfiend, so the dispute this week is between only him and Pii
      To decide this matter, the game of choice is R.C. Pro Am II. The rules are as follow:
      Player 1p only Play till game over You are not allowed to use continues. You ended 4th? TOUGH LUCK! You are done for.

      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!
