Man, this is a tough game!  How are we supposed to play a Breakout clone with digital controls?  I can't help but feel like this game would've been a whole lot better if they had programmed it to work with Taito's Vaus controller.  And having clouds down low that conceal the ball is bullshit!

According to Adaml's list, there are only 30 rounds in this game, but man, clearing that many would take some serious skill.  I only made it to Round 6 on my first game, but that's a start, I guess...

Only 9 of you played.

Only me and @bertsampson were able to beat it. I have knocked it out for the NES completion thread the last few years despite the fact that I really don't like it.

I just learned from reading the 2015 thread that you can run. Hey that might help.

I probably shouldn't have shared that tip back then.

Wouldn't it take longer than 15 min to break 100k in one game?

You are a thunder and lightning homer. I played for 10 minutes and crapped out at 10k. I dont know how much pong 2.0 I have in me.

Once you reach the boss door, you have to go in. Highest score wins Participation: 5,000 points Genre: Arcade

      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
      The contest ends Sunday, 10/10/21 at midnight Brasilia time.

      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!
