Finally got a decent run to phase 62, although I didn't roll the score like I was hoping. Man, it takes forever to get this far. Definitely not my favorite puzzle game. 

266,500

Well I've finished routing out all the levels now it's just down to execution. And that part I struggle with a bit. Especially because this game gets boring fast. Also as soon as I lose my first life and therefore the hammer, I usually game over soon after. I'm probably done for today but I'm give it another go tomorrow.

So you're playing your official runs on an actual CRT...   Major respect! 🙂

Well, I feel better about @Richardhead beating me by 700 points now.

Should have been more. I had a 200k score that I was gonna post. Fucked up and deleted the picture. Was gonna play more today but had an opportunity to buy a new bike and some games. Maybe I can recreate that score before 11pm VAGS time….

Good luck if you end up trying again. I got a game in this morning and ended up scoring just under what I've already got so I'm probably done.

That's actually pretty funny.

 

I couldn’t believe it lol I had thought it was closeish but didn’t really know.  Question now is how much farther to try for.  Mostly just high bars ahead.  I’m appreciating this game more now.  One of the nice things about it is no timer, fireball is pretty mild as a timer although as an enemy it can be an insta-loss at a really inopportune time.  It’s not impossibly hard to reclaim the hammer along the way but it’s still easy to get pinched between the wrenches, even slipping off a bad girder on low point levels can be really damaging to a run.

I never got one either. I guess it really makes a difference!

Yes the levels are way easier with the golden hammer. It makes breaking things way fast meaning you can keep pace with the enemies. And being able to hit enemies opens up way easier solutions.

Friggin' deafcode 😒 lol

I spent way more time on this, i was going to try to beat bert, but obviously @NESfiend doesn't think that is the highest score, so idk......But here is my best, i think it was like phase 42 or 43.......can't remember

I practiced up to 50 and had them mostly down, but apparently not well enough 😒

500,700

also, I don't think the golden hammer ups your score, but i don't really know kuz i was just hammerin' away, it makes everything a 1 shot tho i believe!!!!

Level 6 is where I found mine at and was able to hold onto it for a long time!

EDIT:  I found it on my own on accident and replicated it btw, didn't know that it existed until it popped one time while i was figuring stuff out.......No tip or trick for me 🤣

They pretty much are possible to get in any level with 3 or more bombs. So level 4 is the earliest. It doesn't give extra points, but picking up the hammer gives 3200. So I tried to pick it up in every level I could (although it you want, the cat is also 3200).

Yeah, I didn't know they existed until after I posted my 200k score, but I'm fine with that.  In all honesty, I couldn't see myself not maxing the score on a game like this if we were in the final tourney and I was doing a ton of research and whatnot.

We've definitely seen some great scores so far; I wonder if there will be any more surprises in the last hour...

Also, the hammer is super useful for the bonus levels!!!!  makes it go by, usually get at least 4500 + on each one I hit!

Also, @mbd39 was your strat. milking level 6 a bit?  That was what i was doing for a big score on the first 6 levels, almost what you were at by level 7!

I edited that post to reflect that Im a moron. I started playing around with it and realized he took his photo at start of a new game. And if bert and deaf are the only people above you on a puzzler, you definitely have a very high score. Nicely done!

      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!
