After a smashing rampage I got to Mission 5. My score is 501,980. I had collected 3 metal slug tanks at the end of missions 1, 2 and 4 if you're interested. My player was Marco. Not only is it obvious that I play with Marco (unless you'd care to press the 2P and get Marco killed on purpose just to use Tarma) but I prefer him to Tarma. The hardest boss for me is General Morden's Jumbo Plane in the 2nd mission. Trigger happy Allen the sub-boss in Mission 3 took a lot of mad shooting to kill.

Well done Will - GREAT SCOREThumbs Up
I just had a go - and got 220850 - died near start of stage 3

Riko: Score: 220,850. Player: Marco, Stage: 3.

I think my score should be doubled though because I have the hallowed 'Metal Slug' ranking Grin (its weird how my ranking keeps matching the game of the week. I don;t think it will happen next time)

I want to mention an exploit I found today which I think should be banned. (I didn't use it on my score run)
On Stage 2 where you sink the 3 ships. You can jump on a ship and wait by the door where the men run out and keep knifing them. There seems to be no limit to the amount of men, so I would imagine you could keep doing this until your time runs out.

Will (or Priest)- how do you get the bonus item near the start of the water section on Stage 2 ?(where the bridge arches begin). I haven't really tried yet since I think I will die if I try.

Wow, so surprised not many people have entered this. Anyway, I finally got round to a first run through.

Stage 3 - 239,600

That's pretty crap really to be honest, I have one-credited it before so I know I will improve dramatically. Figured I would get a score on the board for now though at least Smile

TIP: Be sure to use the duck and throw grenades tactic on the bosses if you are in the Metal Slug. You can beat a lot of bosses this way before they even have a chance to do anything so it will save you lives. Smile

Will
With difficulty you can get the bonus item in Stage 2 by the River Thames. Let the floating soldier blast the bridge section, then ensuring you've got leftover flames shots, shoot him. Run off the bridge and immediately at the same second pull your lever to the left and you should land on the bank where the bonus item is. It is tricky and chances are more likely drowning or the screen scrolling so the item and where it is no longer shows.
 
Kazuya_UK
That one isn't too hard to get, you just have to make sure you pull back instantly as soon as you fall. The harder one is the one actually on top of the bridge where he shoots, because if you don't run straight to it before he fires his weapon it will fall into the water. I tend to run up, grab the bonus and immediately pull back, wait till the bridge is destroyed, then kill him and jump down to get the other one on the little bank bit.

Little things like this will bump up your score a lot, as well as destroying all scenery that is breakable! Smile

Riko: (realising Iīm a bit late with this) The bonus item underneath the bridge in the begining of stage 2 is like Will and Kaz say real easy to reach, just pull the joystick to the left (and keep it there until you land) immediatily after you jump off the bridges ledge. Try it its really simple.

Thank you for noticing this cheat. So no boosting the score by killing soldiers (in the spot RiKo eplained in his post earlier) is allowed.

Kaz: Thanks for the strategy on how to beat the bosses easier.

Riko and Kaz: Good job you both get a medal for your effortThumbs Up

This is my best run so far:

Priest: Score: 397,740. Stage: 5 (begining)

I donīt think that I could ever "1CC" this game like Kaz has, the later bosses are just too hard. Still Iīam going to try my best though... Smile

Thanks for all the help on collecting the bonus pickup - I am overwhelmed with kindness Thumbs Up

I did think about doing it that way- but I wasn't sure my man would move that far accross so I chickened out.

Well done Priest - that is a very tasty score Smile

I am not even sure if I have ever 1 credited a game! so well done Kaz Clap

I improved my score by using new scoring tactics of getting all the prisioners - gives you a huge bonus! Smile

Riko: Score: 453,050. Player: Marco, Stage: 3 (begining) AES Version

Now I need to try and get further into the game. My best so far is to get to the sub-boss with the gun on stage 3 - which seems quite poor compared to everyone else:(

EDIT - There are hidden prisioners on Stage 1 if you fire up at the top of the waterfall, and some just before the big sub-boss on Stage 2 if you shoot down through the decking near where the tank explodes. (I watched the video Kaz posted on the GOTW page)

Well done RiKo, the "silver coin" is yoursThumbs Up

Yea the POW are really rewarding to save both in a higher score and for me a sense of "feeling good".

Try to keep the "Slugs" intact till the end of each stage for a higher bonus.

RiKo: Thanks for presenting your score in a nice and tidy way thats just for me to copy and pasteClap

Thanx Priest, played for about 20 minutes on the Aes (Metal Slug Conversion) Only convo I own actually (I don't rate conversions but I bought this when I first got my console and knew no better)

http://www.flickr...3255805119

I was surprised that I got as far as halfway through level 5 before getting consumed Annoyed

Anyway there is always room to improve. (Oh player was Marco by the way)

Starks out.

First off, I donīt think owning a conversion is wrong especially when we are talking about titles which are extremely expensive to buy in its original form or titles which werenīt even released as AES versions.

I own MVS -> AES conversions of "Neo turf masters / Big tournament golf", "Shock Troopers I" and "Art of fighting II" and I donīt regret buying these, will probably never sell them either. So be proud of your MS conversion.

Thats an attractive score the gold coin is yoursClap

Thanx Priest, as for conversions I personally don't rate them and never will, each to his own I guess, I won't knock the people that purchase them, it can be a very touchy subject, there are pros and cons but I don't want to derail the thread. Once my CMVS 4 slot is fixed I am gonna purchase a MVS Metal Slug and whoever wants a Metal Slug AES to MVS convo can have mine.

Well done Tony Starks Thumbs Up That looks like your first go (looking at the high score table). I reckon you could beat this game without breaking a sweat!

Thanx man, to be honest I still can't 1cc MS, I can get to level 5 without loosing a life and then when I get halfway through I just get consumed Annoyed

I think there was a thread on Neo-Geo.com about MS and ways to rack up points.

I know you guys will beat my score soon Wink

It's all good as to be honest it's kinda brought back my competitive spirit Smile

I can't wait for the Fatal Fury NGFL High score challange if it ever happens Grin

Oh yeah Riko just out of curiosity do you own an original MS homecart?

If so how much did it cost you?

Hello Tony Smile There's a Fatal Fury 2 challenge you can currently enter - if you have that game Smile Priest might do a Fatal Fury challenge one day when there is no Game Of The Week. Since Fatal Fury has already been GOTW before the score challenge started.

Oh no, I have the MVS version but I play it on my AES with a convertor - so it plays the same as the AES version. I would like the AES version but as you know it costs a bomb!
--------------------------------------------------------------
Actually I just want to say that I was wrong about my exploit I mentioned earlier since you don't get any points for the guys you knife on the boat. Nazca were ahead of us on that one!

I reckon you can kill the men pushing the snowballs forever too, but I suspect they have probably figured that out too Smile
