It took me only a few minutes to get participation. I expected much worse.

 

I had this feeling that participation should be much higher than that, but still went in light with it.
Anyway, you will love the ruleset I have in store for Klax.

I was expecting POW to be a one life contest too. You're getting soft. 😄

I finally got it loaded onto the flash cart last night. Got to participation pretty quick, but not much further. Even doing a quick watch of gloves video, Im not sure what he is doing to score so damn high. And Im not sure I have the patience for this one to find out. Im sure part of the problem is not jumping enough, but damn. 

The verticle shooter concept is really cool, but this game seems really rough to me. Spoiled by pocky and rocky maybe

Just pick up the diamonds, and don't get hit.

Looked like you were picking up everything. Am I wrong there? Or is like pocky and rocky that you want to pick up the same powerup over and over because picking up a different one resets you back to no upgrade essentially?

I picked up everything cuz I'm a keener. The points are in the diamonds, and I'm pretty sure only taking damage resets their value, or getting enough for a free life. I don't get hit much and I pick up all the diamonds, so whether taking damage or not impacts the points I'm not sure. 

But that's the best advice I can give. There's three tiers to this game, really. 

1) be generally good at dodging things

2) pick up the diamonds, and don't get hit

3) learn where the hidden power up's are, especially flight and Macho Riki

You can get by with 1. You can get a big score with 1 and 2. Do all 3 and you're laughin.

That sounds like more than I'm going to have time for this week as much as I hate to let @Richardhead beat me.

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.

Not being able to pick up items while flying? I hate that.

Just now, docile tapeworm said:

ya know ive tried battle of olympus a few times....dont care for it. i think it had good music? i cant remember. its like a bad platformer rpg like zelda 2. that is the game im thinking of right?

Yeah, that's the right game. I liked Zelda 2 as well though. I really like games that have an element of exploration to them and this had the perfect balance of not being too linear nor being too "how was I supposed to figure that out". It has some interesting mechanics in it as well.

      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!
