Even though its a beat em up, its such a classic/staple in the NES library, I figured Bert would be a monster at it. Was def surprised there. More surprised @PIIdidnt do a sunday score update to kick me off the podium. He was at 222k wed or Thurs. I figured he was grinding trying to get to you and mbd territory. 

True. I expected the same, especially since Bert didn't even play through all of his lives. The 50k score seemed like he was just messing with us.

I didn't have much time over the weekend or I would have been grinding away.  I had a really great run late on Sunday that involved finishing off machine gun willy with headbutts for the first time, but I had changed my strategy somewhat for an unexpected drop in points...

I tried to headbutt Willy once and it got me shot, so I gave up on that approach and worried about just getting to Jimmy with as much energy as possible.

There's a safe spot where he can't shoot you. Then you can bait him into shooting by kicking or punching and then get free headbutts on him. I didn't do it in my 345k run because it's kind of cheap. I'd have had over 350k had I done it.

I actually thought about having seen you post how to cheese the final boss section on NA by finding a safe spot. Was wishing I knew how to access old threads to check it out. Thought it would be pretty lame to ask during competition. I want to beat it legit anyhow. Did a casual run after close of competition last night and made some progress on him. Pretty brutal when he kills you, it resets that whole line of enemies, so the one life I had on reserve wasnt that helpful.

There are at least a couple different safe spots for the Machine Gun Willy fight.

I don't have a consistent strat for the final boss. I just use elbows and kicks, and hope for the best.

I tried to do it like the video and somehow got shot. I gave up on it since I didn't want to risk an hour long attempt for a few thousand extra points.

Another safe spot is at the very bottom of the platform with your foot right above the bricks.

Lol yeah, you definitely should have beat me. Laying headbutts on machine gun willy is straight up crazy.  

 

Ha ha, yeah; I'll getcha next time.  It's also easy to walk him off screen to either side and get him with the elbow.  I'll have to try that with headbutts as well sometime and see if it works..

I guess you could headbutt him using that trick standing at the bottom of the screen. I'll have to try that.

Congrats on the win, @Bearcat-Doug. Busting out of retirement in style with a monster win. Glad your back in the mix and hope it continues!

Thanks! @mbd39 really pushed me to the limit on this one. As quickly as you were improving, you probably would have been right there with a few more days to practice.

      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!
