i knew it was close i was sweating it cause i was talking shit all week. 

look at those scores are weak i think one of the greats cleared it under 12k or something ridiculous.

Rdrunner got 18,800 in the 2013 tournament. I'd like to see what Bea could do with that. Under 12k has been done in Double Dragon 2.

Me and arnpoly got 12k in the Double Dragon 2 low score contest, but Bea got 9,800 if I remember correctly. I never did figure out how to get a score that low.

All this talk about low score contest is making me really grateful most/all contests last couple years have been high score.

I played NES for decades without ever paying attention to scoring before competing. Now Im an absolute glutton for watching the score go up. To a fault really. I spend all my time maximizing scores on first couple levels and never really move on to focus on progress. Stupid? Yes, but its GODDAMN FUN

That Rush N Attack contest was fun. I hadn't played it before then, but I really liked it.

Legendary Wings low score seems really tough. It's an easy shooter but not playing it pacifist.

I am not sure I have it in me to manage to get a sub 20K run in Double Dragon.
Double Dragon 2 was a fun challenge back in the day and I still managed to lower that score on the youtube video.
But Double Dragon 1 is a different beast. They had no fucking idea how to program it when they did it.

Same here. It just depends of how much time I have over the weekend to work on it.

I'm using a risky strat that takes forever (necessary for getting the highest scores). One little mistake means having to start over.

I can clear the game in under 15 minutes playing normally, but these high score runs take about an hour. Hopefully I can give it another shot over the weekend.

@rdrunner

Probably figured out how to scroll every enemy off the screen.  I worked hard at it, but it can be pretty maddening.

Not all of them. 🙂

If I remember, my actual score was for the low score thing was just under 20k.  I believe there was a bonus for not dying that made it look lower.

Well I broke 300k but I'm still disappointed because I should have had over 330k but I choked. I was on the best pace of my life.

      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!
