Ghost Pilots: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
Hey and welcome to this week HSC game, Ghost pilots. A vertical shmup, which is quite rare for the NEO GEO. I think people compare this game with Strikers 1945+ which isn't quite faire, but thats maybe a discussion to raise in the GOTW thread (see link below). Good luck...


Ghost Pilots GAME OF THE WEEK discussion thread:

The rules:

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

* Difficulty: MVS - level 3 / 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.

* Miss-using bugs or glitches in games in order to boost you score isn't allowed and if discovered will lead to disqualification of your score.

* 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.


* How to present your highscore to make my work a lot easier, EXAMPLE:

User nickname: Score: , Character: , End level: , Difficulty level: ...and other facts


There will be no closing dates for the different HSC threads. They will always be there ready to accept new challengers. But I will start to award the winner a medal as soon as scores are posted. And as I said the challenge will always be there.

I really like this game so decided to give this challenge a try. Not a great score but I'm sure I can improve on this.

After playing this quite a bit I managed an improvement. I'd forgotten how enjoyable this game is. I was a bit too slow to enter my initials but it's definitely me.

Will
On my first attempt on MAME I have scored 319,300 points and ended at the third stage on the sea strike scenario.

When playing it advisable that when you reach one of the third stages, always choose the gas flame bomb and the air mines. Their explosion range is better than the other two bombs. I always pick the mega bomb for start. The magnetic warhead with its honeycomb shaped circle is no help at all.

Out of interest Merlin, which third stage did you end up at? Was it the sea strike scenario (the one with the railguns, hovercraft boss and tank bosses) or was it the air strike scenario (the one with the hordes of planes, zeppelin boss and giant airplane bosses). I like to pick the sea strike scenario first, because its slightly easier even with a combination of ground and air enemies.

merlin
Nice score Will. Normally I tend to stick with the mega bomb the whole time but it can be a bit tricky against the bosses because you have to get really close to use it effectively. To answer your question I also choose the sea strike route. For some reason it does seem slightly easier. I've now managed to slightly improve the score I posted earlier today so edited my post.

I managed a bit of an improvement earlier on. It's strange but what always seems to happen is that I can get very far on one life and then all of a sudden lose practically all my lives in a very short space of time. There's a particularly difficult section just before the boss in the third stage (sea route). Lost 4 lives there in only 1 or 2 minutes.

I recognize my own gaming-sessions when I read that last post of yours, Merlin.

Scoreboard and hall of fame are updated. Couldn´t give you the gold color right now as I´m posting from one of the computers at work.

It does get pretty frustrating at times Priest when that happens but I'm really enjoying this challenge. Hopefully some more people will join in too.

I really feel that I'm starting to improve at this game over the last few days. That's why I think having these high score challenges is such a good idea. Competing against each other like this gives us the incentive to try and get better.

Although not really a JCVD fan myself I've got to admit these animated gifs that you post are very funny! Grin

Yup! thats the original idea behind the HSC i e to trigger each other into getting better at the games we play. I would love to see more contenders of the medals...

You don´t have to be a fan of JCVD to apreciate the amazing life of a "superhero" Grin

By the way you now have your highscore in "gold" color on the scoreboard and Hall of fame, enjoy Smile

Had a few more sessions playing this superb game today and managed a slight improvement. This time I got as a far as the stage 4 boss a flame throwing tank that divides into two parts.

Thanks Priest. The old man riding on the Crane is Zuo Ci one of the bosses in the Knights of Valour series and a legendary character from the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. He is said to have lived to 300 years old.

I'm liking your new sig too Priest. I wasn't sure who it was though until Vanilla8282 mentioned it was Billy Mitchell. Still haven't seen The King of Kong yet but would really like to.
 
priest
Thanks Merlin.

That sig you chose have an interesting story. There´s a story behind Billy mitchell too and I recomend you watching KING OF KONG as soon as you get the chance...

I've always intended to come back to this challenge and over the last few days have probably spent around 8-9 hours trying to beat my personal best. Finally after a LOT of frustration I managed a good improvement. This was my best run so far and I got to stage 4 on 1 life and then managed to reach stage 5.

I know a lot of people don't have a very high opinion of this game but I really love it. I'm a big fan of Twin Hawk and Ghost Pilots reminds me of that game.

I hope a few more people will take part in this challenge too.

Hey Merlin, Thats SOME progress. Well doneThumbs Up

I personally prefer Strikers 1945+ over Ghost pilots, but I must admit that I like playing GP aswell. Hmm Twinhawk, I played it on the SEGA MD. Isn´t this a game with just tanks attacking you and no enemy aircrafts? I could be wrong about this...

Thanks Priest.

I'm also a big fan of Strikers 1945+ and I think it's probably the best vertical shooter on the Neo Geo. Ghost Pilots is my overall favourite though. Yes you're quite right about Twin Hawk on the Mega Drive that is the game I meant. Now that I think about it though it does have significant differences from Ghost Pilots. Maybe it's the graphics that reminded me of it.

Good to see some more activity in the HSCs. I'm going to try and improve my scores in Raguy and Blazing Star next.
