Ganryu / Musashi Ganryuki: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
So this week we have a horizontally scrolling Shinobi (kind of) game. I don't know much about it but I'll sure give it a try, I hope you will too...



Ganryu / Musashi Ganryuki Game Of The Week discussion thread:

http://www.neogeo...ad_id=2159

Ganryu review made by Daraku Tenshi (well done!):

YouTube Video



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.

* New rule to this challenge: You're only allowed to pick up any extra life ONCE.

Here's my lame, lame, extremely lame first attempt! I died on the first boss! I will practice and come back, I just wanted to show my interest in this HSC early. Will there be separate categories for the two characters or should we just indicate which one we used when we list our scores? Either way, I used Musashi.

Reelmojo: Welcome to the Ganryu scoreboards, Its a good startThumbs Up

Are there any differences in the gameplay when choosing one or the other character? If not then I think that we just mention which character that was used.

Yeah the differences in character do make a pretty big difference in gameplay. Musashi's normal attack hits twice which is nice for those enemies that fall in front of you while you're attacking someone else, but Suzume's extra speed usually makes up for her lack of power. Also, they get different special weapons. For example in the first stage Suzume throws two knives (kunai?) after getting the power up, one at an upward angle that really helps out, but Musashi gets throwing stars that just go straight forward. For him they're like a power down! That combined with her speed leads me to believe the game is easier with Suzume. But then again, you don't make a separate category for every character in a fighting game, so it's really up to you if you want to make them separate categories or not. They both seem the have the same opportunities for scoring points.

With that said, I've got a better score now! This time with Suzume.

Thanks for that explanation and presenting your score like that (Just for me to copy and paste), Reelmojo. I think IŽll present the scoreboard like it is now.

Good job improving your score. IŽll try to make time for this game the following weekend.

I too find her to be the more effective of the two, but I don't think they warrant different categories.pictureposter.allbrand.nu/pictures/pbucs/ganryu1.jpg

Turns out this game is a lot easier than I thought. The stages are easy and it doesn't take
long to figure out the boss attack patterns. Anyone could easily beat this game on one credit with not much practice. Hardest part of the game for me was the stage 4 boss battle. It's quite easy to make a mistake during that fight.

I recommend using Musashi since he's more powerful. Strangely the game seems easier if you stick to using the sword and ignore shurikens and bombs.

I didn't really put much effort into getting a high score because I was mainly interested in beating the game without dying. My score can be easily beaten by killing more enemies, finding more treasure and rescuing all the hostages. Feels good to have beaten the game on one life.

No problem Priest and thanks for updating. More people should take part in this challenge!

I've noticed there seems to be a issue with scoring in this game. In stage 4 you can pick up
an extra life. You could just keep killing nearby respawning ninjas until the time runs out.
When the time runs out and you die you can get the extra life again and repeat the same
process. If you concentrate on killing red and green ninjas you can easily get 30000+ points each time.

Looks like Visco made an error here. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but it seems that you
could in theory get a score as high as the score display allows (9,999,999?).

Priest I suggest it should be a rule that you can only pick up any extra lives once.
 
priest
Point taken, thanks MerlinThumbs Up

New rule to this challenge: YouŽre only allowed to pick up any extra life ONCE.

and repetedly killing the respawning ninjas in this place at stage 4 is NOT allowed to boost your score.
