Viewpoint: NGFL High Score Challenge
RiKo
Thanks Merlin and Murikov Grin I am making gradual progress, i need to break for a few days now, but i beat my score again.

Riko: Score: 178,220 Stage: 3 near start Played on: Neo Geo AES

I really need to practice on Stage 3 now. i wish the Unibios had a level skip option - it doesnt seem to have that on any games. if it did i could practice on later levels. i will just have to continue once i die and get some practice in that way.

I learnt some good tactics, like you can use your special weapons during the levels rather than just saving them for the boss fights . if you use them - you often get given new ones anyway.

im afraid i havent reached that butterfly/moth boss yet so i cant offer any tips - looks hard though! Shock

Wow, again a great progress, almost the same score as mine! Thumbs Up

I really must play Viewpoint again, I just have been playing Last Hope in the last time (and that one is a lot harder than VP).

And better keep practicing with the third boss before trying a completely new run; it's really a pain if you meet it the first time.

Instead of trying to use charge shots, just button mash the normal shot during that attack. The game will slow down a lot and that'll make dodging much easier.

Thanks for the tip, I'll use it for sure! I just hope this works with the emulator too.

@priest: But it is allowed to make use of that trick, isn't it?

RiKo: Good to see that youŽre really giving this game your best over and over again. Thanks for your encouraging words, buddyThumbs Up

Murikov (and everyone els partcipating in this VP HSC): I guess button mashing is just another style of gamesplaying and if this affects the gameplay because of a bug in the game, then we have to decide once and for all if this should be allowed in this HSC.

Any opinions on this, if not IŽll make the decision...

First of all: This trick just works with this specific boss so far and probably if you're surrounded by lots of enemies that are shooting (haven't tried it yet) etc. but it's still a "useful flaw" of the original AES/MVS game that can't be bypassed with any of the game settings (maybe unless you play it on a emulator, just like me).

I personally would allow it.

Thanks very much Murikov Thumbs Up its a big improvement since my first score lol. i will have to practice on that boss, i seen him in videos and he looks very hard.

i think button mashing is ok in this game going on how far i have got so more. i dont really button mash too much becasue i have arm problems, and it hurts Smile i dont know, it doesnt seem like a major help so far. but i havent got to that butterfly boss. i noticed sometimes it slowed the bubbles down on the crab boss when i was shooting a lot, it did kill me a few times cos when i stopped firing they suddenly sped up lol if it does it on every boss and makes it easy then maybe not, we need someone to test it.

Priest I think it's a perfectly legitimate tactic and should be allowed. I was planning on using it on my next run through if you decide it's ok to still use it.
 
priest
The general rule for every HSC specificaly says:

"* Miss-using bugs or glitches in games in order to boost you score isnŽt allowed and if discovered will lead to disqualification of your score.".

And I know this was brought up to discussion during a Metal slug HSC where at one place you could "milk" a higher score out of the game just by staying at on place and shooting enemies that kept comming. But in Viewpoint using this bug is of a different kind you still need some skill to survive.

And if all contenders of this HSC agrees that its OK to use this "bug" then I guess so be it

Everyone agrees? IŽll take the absence of posts in this matter as a YESSmile

This have now been added to the VP rules.

Well that Hilary Clinton "chick" never enters ANY HSC, yet she wants to decide the rules eh? I think that Bill should keep her on a shorter leech or maybe its hilary that wears the pants in their familyGrin

To any female member who might be offended by my last comment, I would like to say to you all: I was only kidding, no harm was meant by it.

Score: 94,980. Run ended: Stage 2, killed by spinning rock turtles. Difficulty: MVS. Format: AES (Japanese console), Viewpoint home cart (U.S.).

Humble beginnings. My first serious HSC attempt. Not a bad start but this will certainly be improved upon.

This game has always reminded me of Zaxxon. Some day maybe I'll have to see about trying it out.

Well, I haven't had that much time to play the new games I bought from Preist, but I tried View Point a couple of times. And as everybody else I hate the crab. Only managed to get to the third stage twice, and both times on my last life.
So far this is the best score, but i'll try more.

Some gamers are very interesting with this game here. It's great.

I can help you if you want to have some information to go farther than now.

I onelife the game since 2011.
