VGS Weekly Contest - The Guardian Legend


Recommended Posts

Ladies and gentlemen, it is TIME!

Time for our players to gather up, turn into an anime girl that in turn... turns into a space ship... that shoots things? WTH?
Who the hell comes up with this kind of stuff! This is MADNESS!

Anyway, our brave soldiers will tackle this game following the rules below:

  • Enter in the password “TGL.”  This will allow you to only play the shooting stages.
  • Play until you die (run out of life)
  • Take your picture as you die (you can pause the game as you die)
  • Get as far in the game as possible
  • The areas are played in this order: 0 1 11 12 2 13 3 14 4 15 5 16 6 17 7 18 8 19 9 20 10 21 22
  • Furthest progression wins with highest score taking precedence
  • No intentional point pressing during boss fight
  • Participation: Get to Area 1
  • guillavoie's special rule : Everyone must act over enthusiastic about the quality of the game.
  • GENRE: Shooter

The contest ends Sunday, 09/06/20 at 11 PM VGS 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.

please do 😉

I could do worse. I could go back to the original rules of progression + low score so you all would be as bored as I was on the later levels back then, avoiding the hell out of everything to not score points.
Give this a SERIOUS consideration.
I am feeling particularly EVIL today.

I played a bit this morning and was so confused when the on foot gameplay happened.....might be fun to explore, but the tgl code makes sense lol.  

If you like the TGL mode, go for the full ride with the exploration parts off contest, that game is a ton of fun!

And for those that want to resume the fun after beating the original, there's a hack named The Guardian Legend Secret Edition that is absolutely awesome, it's like the equivalent of having a Legend of Zelda second quest but for Guardian Legend (made by @Optomon, I can't thank you enough for making that hack). The increase in difficulty is spot on from beating the original and then starting a new game of the hack. The hardest version of the bosses in the hack are really fun challenges, and I'm not spoiling the final battle cause Optomon had a genius idea for it. Plus, there's a way to play it shooter only!

It was actually Red who took me down there.
He was more patient than me and killed less enemies on his run than I did on mine.
It was SO BORING to just avoid everything and their mothers on the last levels to try to get to the bosses with the lowest score possible for each stage.

Yeah, that was always something Compile was great at. A few other companies could have learned from them. Looking at you, Konami. 😄

      LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
      Welcome to THE VERY LAST weekly contest game for this season!
      And what a fitting finale right before our most expected tournament!

      This week, our players have it easy, having to compete for high score on the easiest NES game ever conceived, GHOSTS 'N GOBLINS!
      Without further ado, here's the SPOOKY rules for this not at all spooky game:
      Play until Game Over You must power up your NES before each of your run to reset the drop pattern correctly. You may collect each 1-up only once.  In the second loop of the game, you will be allowed to collect each 1-up one time as well. Looping from stage 6 to stage 5 by not having the shield is forbidden Highest score wins Participation: 5,000 GENRE: Action The tournament details will be made public during the course of the next two weeks. Players, be prepared!
      The contest ends Sunday, 10/25/20 at 11 PM VGS 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.

      It is time to GET SPOOKY! October is upon us. SPOOOOKYYYY!
       
      So to start this scary season, nothing better than an horrific game, Monster In My Pocket!
      Since our players are scared shirtless, here's the rules already:
      1 life only 1 player only Choose whichever character you want Stage progress followed by high score is what determines your placing. If you make to the final boss, take your picture at the start of the fight. Your run ends there. Max score is 9,500. If you pass over it, your score is 9,490 and your run ends there. In case of 9,490 points ties, progress will determine who wins. If you hit exactly 9,500, you may proceed till the final boss without killing anything else... if you can. Any score picture taken at the boss screen takes precedence over 9,500+ points scores. Reaching the boss is a sure way to secure a top 8 spot. If you make to the final boss with 9,500, you earn the 1st place for this week. Several people can tie for 1st this week. Participation: 500 The contest ends Sunday, 10/11/20 at 11 PM VGS 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.
