@Gloves are you gonna shred this week? how is this not in the shooter genre?

I'm gonna find some time between work for sure. Not highly likely I'll get a top score, but I might get addicted like most times I pop this one in.

That's the very one I was thinking of.  Tough and SO much fun.  Great jumping w/a little bit of float!  I haven't beaten it though.  That one and Zen Intergalactic Ninja.  Now that guy's got a ridiculous hang time.

Compared to them Riki's on a planet with some extra gravitational pull...

Might be worth a 2nd glance.  I regret not having secured a copy yet.  Asking price seems to have doubled in the last couple of years.  I have it on one of my multicarts though....

My thoughts. My local store had one forever and I wouldnt buy it because of a decent sized knick in the label. They probably wanted like 10-15 bucks. And now I want to play it and cant find the extension to load the flash cart in the midst of house painting fiasco. Im a pocky and rocky fan and this will be fun to try whenever I can

I know you can't possibly be referring to Zen Intergalactic Ninja here....

Nah, I bought that one on nintendo age years ago. Not a bad game. No dino and riki so I fired up the snes version. Only got a little over 90k. @Gloveswould have laughed at my ass kicking

One of my absolute favorite shrimps, and one of my top NES games. 

@CasualCart get in here and play! 

Oh shoot - I haven't been paying attention to the weekly contests haha. I'm garbage at Dino Riki (and every other game on the planet), but I'll try to get a run in.

I have no doubt you'll absolutely wreck this one haha.

Absolutely, that's another fun one that gets hard quick.  I picked up a copy a few years ago and felt that I'd found a real gem.  It seems to be remaining relatively obscure...

Damn, didnt realize zen became such a pricey game. Only one cart only listing available on ebay. 160 bucks for a chewed uppppp copy. Crazy shit. I remember thinking I overpaid at 50 bucks

I got pumped to play a weekly contest on actual hardware for the first time since I finally got my NES collection out of storage (pandemic issues - long story). But my Dino Riki cart wouldn't boot on my NES! 
Luckily, I still managed to dump the ROM ... kind of ... It's a bit of a glitchy mess, but I can still tell what's going on in the emulator. 

Anyway - I made it across the first lilypad jump. Am I a Dino Riki master now?

Well, still suck at the game, but I doubled my score. That's probably it for the week though.

Fuck I hate one-life rulesets in hard as balls shooters.  Took me ages just to break the participation barrier.  Maybe next week will be a game I actually WANT to play...

*checks*

Nope, guess not.  Fucksticks.

FOUR More Reasons To Love And Play Dino Riki This Week:

1. Riki's Ever-Swinging Arms and the way his feet keep on marching along even when he flies.

2. The way Riki has to seek out the big Dinos and battle them inside their cavernous home turf + Giant Fiddleheads.

3. Fire-Belching Triceratops And Sand-L Pools!

4. The Wonderful and distinctly Japan-esque Weirdness of basing a Caveman and Dinosaurs Video Game on real life Japanese Wrestler One Riki Choshu.

Dude, I hate to break it to you, but I barely broke 5K getting to that jump, and that's because I shot damn near everything.  There's no way your score says 45,460...I'd say download a clean ROM to use, as that's...damn...

I know I felt a real sense of accomplishment the first time I did that.

I'm usually around 60k when I arrive at that Lilly Pool...

For what it's worth, I had some time to play this morning and ended up practicing Galaga instead.

I made it further past the lilypad once I cleared it haha. And while I usually only have around 5K before that jump, this time I managed to get some kind of point-bonus that I missed in my other attempts.

But as far as bad dumps go - I don't know how to check if the glitches in my ROM affect anything other than the graphics. If my ROM isn't allowed, then I'll take my score back, since I have a personal stance against downloading pirated games.

@BeaIank - can I get an official ruling for whether or not I can participate with my current ROM?

      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
      The contest ends Sunday, 10/10/21 at midnight Brasilia time. Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun

      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!
      The contest ends Sunday, 09/26/21 at midnight Brasilia time.
