NAM 1975: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
So after some members asking for a NAM 1975 Highscore challenge, I now thought the time had come for this game. NAM 1975 has already been covered in Game of the week, please see link:

http://www.neogeo...;pid=10839



www.neogeoforlife.com/forum/game_discussion/nam_1975/nam_1975_flyer.jpg



The rules:

* Play whichever version you like: AES / MVS / MAME.

* Difficulty: 4 MVS / AES - MVS setting)

* Lives: Default setting

* Credits: 1

* Multiple runs as training is of course allowed. Also if you manage to surpass your previous score then just post it and Iīll update the first post.

* No cheating with any kind of UNI-BIOS is allowed.

* No cheating in Emulators such as autofire, Pausing or infinite lives are allowed
(or any other effect you can use in emulators to make the game easier, score higher etc)

* Photographic proof is not needed as I believe that we are all honorable people. If you like though you can attach a photo or a mini-clip with your highscore.

* State which platform you played this game on.

* The goal: Highest score possible.

* A link to "The NGFL Highscore hall of fame": http://www.neogeo...ad_id=1380

I've made it this far in one go after practice. I was last killed by a bullet in Stage 5 - The Enemy Arms Factory. My score is 515,900 points. There are rare items I have come across like the 10,000 bonus and the Missile Launcher. Sadly I never managed to get help from damsels in distress.

It would be interesting if our contributing players could state how they last died considering there are many different death types:

Shot by a bullet
Blasted by an explosion
Burned to a crisp
Crushed by the Crane Tank
Flattened by the Steam Rollers
Poisoned by Nuclear Gas
Nuked by a Laser Beam
 
RiKo
Will - well done Smile - I know you are going to be tough to beat on this game. Are you still writing your Nam war diary?

I am still AES-less but I will have a go when I get it back. I am really looking forward to playing this game! If you don't take part in this challenge then 'How do you know? You weren't there man......' Shock

Thanks for reminding me Riko. I'm about halfway finished through the war diary onto the Airport Stage. Can't wait to describe that Russian Commando hanging from the helicopter.

Will: welcome to NAM 1975 challengeSmile

RiKo: When do you expect your AES to be back? Looking forward to see your NAM 1975 score...

Priest - All the work has been done on it now and I should have it back Wednesday or maybe earlier. It won;t be a great score since I haven't played Nam too much so far, but I have been looking for an excuse. I'm sure it will improve gradually Smile

Will - Its good to hear you are still writing it, Keep it up! Thumbs Up

I had a few tries earlier on and here's my best score:

Merlin: Score: 247,600. Stage: 3 (Final Burn Evolution)

Great score by the way Will. Thumbs Up You must be an expert at this game. I definitely won't be able to match that as I find this game pretty difficult. I do love playing Nam 1975 though. The stage 1 bosses always make me laugh 'Your operations have been watched. You will diiiiiie!' They look a bit weird too.

Good job MerlinThumbs Up I find Nam 1975 pretty hard too.

I gave this game a go this evening and this is how I did:

Priest: Score: 298,300. Stage: 4 Killed by guy hanging from a helicopter (Boss?)

I often miss to pick up the bonuses a thereby missing out on a higher score. I guess the way to rack up a higher score in this game is to shoot everywhere and everything as bonuses can be found where you do not expect them. The highest bonus I found was 5,000.

The girl is really useful, eh?

Scoreboard hall of fame and medals are updated.

Nice score Priest. Joe

Yes that girl does come in handy for a bit of extra firepower. I'm going to try and improve my score tomorrow but I doubt I can get past stage 3 because that big plane is so difficult to defeat without losing loads of lives. Yes you're right there are loads of hidden bonuses especially in the big plane.

Bum! - I have lost my copy of Nam:( So I had to play Cyberlip instead (which I have now, I have resorted to buying cheap games!). I think I may have put it somewhere seperate from the rest of the games cos I was going to sell it and buy a new copy. My 'Nam has the censored woman on the front cover. No disrespect to Muslim countries but it seems a bit extreme - she's not showing much.

My copy of Viewpoint has also gone missing. This is a sad day for Riko:(

Hey RiKo my good friend, you have to be more careful with your AES games. Afterall you cannot blame the size of the carts for loosing them Wink

Really, there is 2 different versions of the "Nam1975" cover. I really didnīt know this. *Runs* to check which version I own...

lol. Yes they are quite chunky aren't they. Ha - I think I know where it is now. I remembered where I put my Viewpoint game, and I think its with that. I will have a go soon Smile

Priest wrote :- Really, there is 2 different versions of the "Nam1975" cover. I really didnīt know this. *Runs* to check which version I own...


well not really. There are a lot of Nam games you can buy which have black marker pen on over part of the woman - I think its her exposed leg. Unfortunately I got one of these! This was when I first got my Neo and I wasn't sure if it would suit me, so I was just buying anything. There seem to be quite a lot which have this pen mark on, I was told that these copies where ones which were originally sold in Arab countries - where of course ladies can't show any flesh.

BTW Yes I have an AES copy of Cyberlip now. I got it a couple of weeks ago.

I just made it back from 'Nam!

I got 190,900 Stage 3 (start)

Priest Do you know why you sometimes get to fight 'bosses' inbetween levels? Is it random? or is there some reason behind it? Thanks Smile

Yes the woman is very useful! Smile It would be good if your passenger in Outrun was as handy!

RiKo: Iīm glad you found your NAM 1975 cart, you must live in a very big house...Loosing a AES cart, Iīm speechlessWink

Iīm afraid I canīt answer your boss question. Iīll have to get back to you after (hopefully) playing this game over the weekend. Maybe someone else can answer?

...Anyways welcome to the "NAM 1975" challenge, well doneThumbs Up

Scoreboard and hall of fame are updated. Medals are the same.

You are quite right Riko, the mid-bosses are random so there is a 50/50 chance of confronting it. Sometimes you'd love to face it and boost your score or you'd rather avoid it in case you lose your precious lives. There are four mid-bosses: The Crane Tank, The Gas Truck, The Steam Rollers and The Heavy Tank. There is no mid-boss in between the Enemy Arms Factory and the Final Stage, at least I don't think so.
 
RiKo
Thanks Will - I don;t like it at the moment when I get bosses - since they tend to kill me! so I prefer it when they don;t turn up.

Priest - no my house isn;t very big - its just I put it in a really stupid place Smile Also I am having a big clear out, and everythings in a mess! I also found my SNK memory cards - which I have never used. Can you actually use these to save scores?

Oh OK I promise I wonīt "bug" you by bringing this subject up againSmile

Yea Memorycards saves highscores as long as the internal battery is still alive. I use the memory cards to transfer scores between my AES and my MVS cab. I have one cab which still has the memory card reader intact. Most NEO GEO cabs I have seen has been robbed of the reader.

I like the Idea of moving scores and progress between the arcade and your home.

Uhhh. Just been playing this - but somehow managed to do worse! Nevermind - its good practice Smile I kept diving instead of running.

I am taking temporary leave from the army now so I can devote myself to playing Breakers Rev. One day I will return to the jungle though, but 'DO I have to go back to that hell again?'. Probably.......

I've been trying hard to improve my score but I also keep doing worse than before. I can barely get more than 100,000. Those mid-bosses such as the crane tank are a nightmare and I always lose lives there. I predict Will is going to emerge as the undisputed NGFL Nam 1975 champion.

I recently watched a complete playthrough of Nam on youtube in which the person had completed the whole game on one credit. It really is incredible that someone can do that. It's a really tough game I think.
