Pulstar: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
So since there isn't any new GAME OF THE WEEK this week, I thought I would use one of the previous GOTW as this week HIGH SCORE CHALLENGE game. Lets see if this shooter challenge will be as popular as the BLAZING STAR challenge proved to be...

Link to the thread where PULSTAR were discussed:

http://www.neogeo...ead_id=759

www.neogeoforlife.com/images/photoalbum/album_166/pulstar_flyer.jpg


The rules:

* Play whichever version you like: NEO GEO MVS / NEO GEO AES / NEO GEO CD / EMULATOR

* Difficulty: MVS - level 4 / 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 I'll 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.

I had a short session. Although I'm not very good at Pulstar I know I can do better than this and hope to improve my score.

Merlin: Welcome to this challenge and well doneThumbs Up

Thanks for presenting your score in a tidy wayClap

Yea Pulstar is a bit more difficult than Blazing star IMO. Which one of these to do you prefer to play?

I will try to have time to play this game for a highscore this comming weekend...

I've been wanting to do one of these high score challenges so I'm joining up this time. I'm playing on MAME.

First score: 50560

...ouch. Admittedly I haven't played this game for a long time, but I love it so I'll be sure to keep trying.

EDIT: Scratch that crappy score already... New score is attached. I only got to Stage 2, and I don't even know what killed me but once you lose all your weapons it's a bitch to try to get them back.

Although I love Blazing Star I've always preferred Pulstar even though I'm not very good at it. I get the impression most people prefer Blazing Star out of the two games. I look forward to seeing what score you can achieve too Priest.

Nice score Reelmojo! Good to see a new challenger emerge in the high score challenges.

I had another go and got to the stage 2 boss on one life. I really hate that boss. It's so tough to beat. One thing I think helps a lot in the game is if you get the power up that lets you have that pink protective barrier around your ship.

lol it looks like Jean Claude Van Damme has 3rd position in the high score table. Well done Jean Claude! Clap

I just had a blast on Pulstar (don't tell Breakers!) I got 168,390 Stage 2.

I'm with you mojo - This game is a bit annoying when you die - like on the 2nd boss it puts you back in the level with no weapons.

For me I prefer Blazing Star, Pulstar is a bit like R-Type and is a slower more thoughtful shooter. It feels really nice though and has great graphics and music.

I reckon Kaz will be good at this game when he comes back. I watched his video on YouTube a while back - he's pretty good from what I remember!

Damn this is a difficult game, After a couple of runs I only managed to rack up:

Priest: Score: 131,940. level: 2

I clearly need some training to get better at this game, otherwise I really liked the look of this game even though much is "ripped off" from R-TYPE. Many enemies attack in the same way, some enemies reminds me of those in R-TYPE.

Directly after this I played Blazing star and if I had to choose one game BS is the better of the two IMO.

RiKo: You are right about the difficulty beeing abit annoying at times.

I just had a quick go on Pulstar - I really need to practice on the 2nd boss, but I don't get much chance because I die too soon!

I improved marginally 177230 Stage 2

I like that this game is hard because it means you can have quicker games.

I've been playing this today - I been dying so much on the 2nd boss - that I have become great at the first 2 levels! - just cos I have played them through so many times. I finally managed to beat the sucker though Smile

Riko: Score: 244,810. Stage: 3 Played on AES

I actually got to stage 3 on one life, but I lost my other 2 lives embarassingly quickly. I will have to practice stage 3 now:(

I still think Kaz will kick our arses at this game when he returns Smile

This game is so tough at times. After quite a few attempts I finally managed to get to stage 3. The stage 2 boss is incredibly tough to beat. I watched Kaz's Pulstar video a few times and it definitely helped me. I don't think I could ever get a really high score in this game though. I bet RiKo will be number 1 again before long but it's nice to be at the top for a short while at least.

Merlin: Score: 266,140. Stage: 3 Played on Final Burn Evolution
 
RiKo
Well done Merlin! Grin Great score. I died really badly when I got to stage 3. I will play this game sometime but I am still on my gamebreak!

Congrats on making Giga Power - you can now equate yourself with MOTW! Smile an honour indeed.

Thanks RiKo. Stage 3 is pretty tough but I'm sure when your gamebreak is over you'll be able to get a better score. Hopefully some new challengers will emerge too.

You're nearly at Giga Power too but I guess you probably preferred being 'Marked by the Wolf'.

This game is hard, but it's my personal goal to beat it on one credit one day. That day is still far off, but at least I'm improving:
