Viewpoint: NGFL High Score Challenge
priest
One of the most difficult NEO GEO shmups, there aren't that many of this genre but all are good to great. Viewpoint had an unusual point of view, isometric and thats why it got this name...Well I think so atleast. Enough of me talking rubbishSmile

Please join in the VIEWPOINT GAME OF THE WEEK discussion thread and good luck with the highscores...

The rules:

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

* Difficulty: MVS - level 2 / AES - MVS setting
(there are four difficulty settings instead of the usual eight)

* 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. Button mashing in order to use a bug in the game to slow this game down is according to the rules (see post #51 of this thread)

* 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 played it for about 1 hour on the PSP NeoGeo emulator MVSPSP (I hope this counts too), in MVS difficulty mode with 1 credit. I took the pics with the screenshot function of the emulator.

I made it at least to the second stage, right after the big fish appears (that bastard). Those elevating blocks were also annoying as hell, I need to practice a bit.

I tried again and the funny thing was, that I earned a higher score without even completing the first stage.
So my highscore would be definately 68250. I'll keep on playing! Smile

Just had a session with this fantastic game earlier on.

Merlin: Score: 135,930. , Stage: 3, Played on Final Burn Evolution

i557.photobucket.com/albums/ss13/merlin196/Neo%20Geo/Viewpoint.png

I'm far from being an expert but here are a few tips I have for the first two stages.

* May as well use all your special attacks against the first boss because you can easily get another 3 in stage 2.

* The crab boss in stage 2 takes ages to beat and has two configurations so I think it's important to get there with the temporary invincibility power up. Get fully powered up to the stone labyrinth with the moving blacks where the big fish is, As soon as it appears immediately head to the top of the screen, quickly grab the power up and then go quickly right where you'll be safe from the big fish.

* Keep at least 1 or 2 special attacks for use against the second phase of the crab boss.
 
Craig

"Mr. Crabs" at the end of Stage 2 was one mean hard motherf*cker! Grin
Many thanks for your tips, Merlin!!

I think the best way to beat the 2nd boss in the first form is to hit it with charged shots right in the middle (just when it waves it claws). Just those bubbles are so annoying!

Thanks a lot, but you too improved well! Honfu
That crab is just a pain in the ass and stage 3 seems to be a bastard too... I can't say if I get far next time.

Good scores Craig and Murikov.You both made a great improvement. Thanks for your crab boss tip Murikov. I absolutely HATE that crab f*cker. It takes an eternity to beat him, those bubbles follow you all over the screen and his final form is pretty annoying too.

I've changed my tactics a bit now. I only use two special attacks on the first boss and use one on that big serpent at the start of stage 2 just to get some more points. I also use one against the big fish because you get a good bonus for beating it (something like 5000 points I think?).

That section with the moving barriers and the tanks in stages 3 is very tough. I usually end up dying there. I somehow managed to get past it this time.

Here's my latest effort:

Merlin: Score: 180,040. , Stage: 3, Played on: Final Burn Evolution

Yaay, finally I made it to the third boss (the giant butterfly), now that's real tough one. It seems that it shoots constantly all over the place without pausing, so it isn't enough if you just use some super shots. Serious thing...
