I've just being playing Blazing Star. I had about 6 tries but I got my best score on my first go! - that oftens happens to me actually - I think once I start thinking about what I'm doing I do worse.

I got 665980 with Windina craft (I copied you guysSmile)

I am rubbish at the moment when I get to the third stage - I just fly into scenery and get confused. I definitely think I can improve though.

Nice scores RiKo and Powerwave!

I had a session just now and improved on my earlier score. The battle against the stage 3 boss was a bit stressful as I was down to my last life. I can never get very far in stage 4, the game seems to get quite a bit harder.

Score: 1,228,970

Rank: C

Stage: 4 (start)

Ship: Hellhound

Thanks Priest. I don't think I'll be in the no. 1 position for long.

To begin with the stage 3 boss isn't that difficult. It's the last phase of it's attacks when the boss is spewing out loads of shots at you then I have trouble. I knew if I lost that last life I'd miss out on the end of stage bonuses so it was stressful. I tend to stay at the far left of the screen and just make very slight adjustments up and down to avoid the incoming shots. If the boss heads towards me then I move further up or down to get out of the way.

I'm really enjoying this challenge! I hadn't played Blazing Star for quite some time and actually feel now that I've improved slightly.

799400 level 3 and i played with dino 135 i will also be posting that scores from my son he is only 5 and i think it's kind of cool the he can beat this game on God knows how many credits but with just one he can finish the first level my way to keep the neo alive....
 
rbelmonte171
892360 was my last score now same everything level 3 aryustailm this time not sure if i spelled it right
 
priest
Merlin: OK Thanks for the tactics. Yea I really think these little challenges can trigger us to play our games and get better players while doing soFranco (had to try one of the new smilies)

Rbelmonte: Thats a fine score, you now posess the third position on the ranking listClap (hehehe these new smilies are great)

IŽm sure your son will be unstopable as a gamesplayer in just a couple of years. Gamesplayer training is a bit like Jedi training, it should start at a young age Wink

Hi - I improved my score today - by a lot Grin - mainly by figuring out you get more points the more enemies you kill in one attack. I still can't beat the end of level boss on the 3rd stage though:(

I got 1012430 - Windina ship again

Well done Merlin and Rbelmonte - great scores! Its like we're all playing on an arcade machine in our local arcade.

Can someone tell me what the pickup with wings does? - at first I thought it made me invincible, but that idea soon went out the window after I died trying to ram an enemy.

Blazing Star is a great shoot-em-up - its strange in a way because its like a cross between a Retro-shooter and a modern bullet-hell shooter. I think I prefer it to Pulstar now. I like Pulstar but it can be a bit slow and plodding at times.

Impressive scores rbelmonte171 and RiKo! If you had got past that 3rd stage boss RiKo you could have perhaps taken the lead.

I was also wondering about this. Even though I've played the game a lot I've never understood what those things are.

I found this Blazing star walkthrough at neo-geo.com. There are some strategies for each stage / bosses and a presentation of the ships, see if you think its usefull:

Sorry to cut in a little... it seems there is a fair bit of interest in high scores. I know we have talked about this before, but would there still be enough interest in having a high scores section on the site? I don't really have enough time to work on it but if anyone wants to be responsible for keeping it updated I would be glad to give you access.

If people are interested we can make another thread so as not to derail this one Smile
