Nightmare in the Dark: NGFL High Score Challenge
Welcome to the Nightmare in the Dark High Score Challenge! It's been quite a while since we had a new HSC. Hope to see plenty of interest in this challenge.

Link to game of the week:


The rules:

* Play whichever version you like: NEO GEO MVS / 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.

This is my best so far. Not so good I know but the stage 3 boss is not easy. I'll try to improve on this.

Have been playing this wonderful game a lot over the last few days. It's fairly short and not that difficult but I still can't get a 1CC. I reached the final boss five times and failed every time! Really love this game! My favourite single screen platform game.

Most probably no-one else will be interested in taking part!

I also like the single screen bubble bobble/snow bros style games. Wish I had this one, the youtube vids of it look fun.

I have zupapa, which is also fun, but nowhere near as cool a theme.
Come on people and give us your best score, give Merlin a run for his money Beard

I'm sure you would like it a lot Lord Thag. Zupapa is great too but I prefer this. Love the theme, style of graphics and nice music.

Thanks Priest. Unfortunately people seem to have lost interest in the high score challenges.

After many failures I finally beat the game on one credit. The score isn't that high compared to other scores I've seen though.

Something strange happened during one of my high score attempts. During the first boss fight a very large gem dropped which I accidentally collected without letting it break into smaller gems. Then a second one dropped shortly afterwards which broke into smaller gems. I picked up one of the small gems and the game immediately went to the start of stage 2 even though the boss wasn't dead yet!
I wanted to post my score, but the Merlin saw how low it was compared to his own. Merlin mocked my low score and called me a "mongoloid". Very hurt right now.

I am glad Merlin has such skills, while I myself just have a pool of tears....

shot in the eye
shot in the brain
shot in the ass...
2D is lying of course (as usual).

Seriously though you could easily get a similar or even better score. Give it a try! Most of the game is quite easy isn't it. The third and final bosses are the hardest parts.
