Okay, well, after another 20 minutes, I not only haven't broken 5K, I also can't get more than 4 diamonds before getting hit.  The pools kill my runs.  Shooters are definitely NOT my jam!

This wouldn't be half bad if they took out the stupid jumping parts.

EDIT: Also, I've never made it past the first lily pad.  I can't seem to get the hang of the jumping.  Fuck this game.

Tis a garbage game. Very frustrating. There is a fun factor though. I’m enjoying it and will probably beat it.(not in one life)

Here's a quick recording of a pretty bad run through level 1: 

 

Well, that helped a bit.  I at least managed to double my score at the same point of death.  Still not a fan, but it's better than most games I have no interest in playing 😛

That's basically how I feel about it. I actually like the rest of the games on the schedule.

I'd rather not play RC Pro Am II, but I'll put up a participation score...unless the participation threshold is beyond my will to achieve a participation score 😛

I'm better at the first game, but I do like it. Klax is fun compared to most puzzle games. I played Holy Diver a bit last week and it seems like a fun Castlevania style game. Galaga is a favorite of mine, so I'm hoping to put up a good score that week.

If you want to play a similar game that's actually good, try GunSmoke.

Gunsmoke is very good, but not nearly as much wild fun as this.  Jumping not broken.  Be very deliberate about it.  Controls are Loosey-Goosey which is part of what makes it so much fun once you get the feel.  In my direct experience there is only one functional flaw in this game.  If anyone can point it out (not counting Gloves), I'll stand up and salute you, most heartily.

I'll likely give it another try sometime this week if I get time. I'm sure that I would like it a lot better if I got used to the jumping.

Learn where the flight tokens are and you'll never worry about jumping ever again.

It's way better than this. Probably because there's no broken jumping involved. You can also ride a horse which just adds to the experience.

meerkat loves riding horses huh huh

@Dr. Morbis i played with my pioneer turntable instead of playing nintendo today.

I haven't even started on Riki yet either, since it's Thanksgiving up here in God's Country, but I ain't too worried since I only need 5th or better to win the genre.   But there are a whole bunch of extra dudes playing this week, so I'm gonna have to put up a half-decent score.  I think I should be able to get to it Wednesday or Thursday...

EDIT: And I collect vinyl too 🙂  Bimbo by Jim Reeves... now that's music!!!!  😛

      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!
