HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT

There IS a way of barrel rolling in the game - I don't know how to trigger it reliably, but if you mash/rapidly tap in a direction you'll occasionally get a woosh, followed by a second or two of doubled movement speed and a barrel roll animation. I'm not sure if this gives invulnerability frames or anything, but if there were a way of triggering it reliably (still trying to see if it's double/triple tapping, it seems unreliable to trigger) it might have some uses.

oh right, apparently this isn't new, I guess if noone really mentions it it probably isn't all that helpful

I think the barrel roll does give momentary invincibility, but you'd have to be pretty daring to use it that way.

Back to the hunter shot, its still useless even when used properly without autofire. Its much too weak and narrow. I tested the different shots once to see if maybe the weaker shot would mean more points from chip damage on the bosses, but all the shots end up being worth about the same (laser was marginally the best).

I use missile for the last stage because it makes the last half much easier, particularly the boss.

All this Air Gallet talk got me interested in playing again and after just a few warm-up credits I smashed my old score:

Image
NTSC-J - 8'859'940 - ALL

Only one miss (on the last boss), but I missed the max bonus on three stages so this should have been over 9 million.

Congrats, that is an amazing score!

When returning to a game after a long hiatus it seems my skills have improved drastically from playing other games. It's often the case I quickly beat a high score after just a few credits to re-familiarize myself.

On my 1CC I used missiles for the first 3 stages, then laser for stages 4 + 5, switch to missiles for stage 5 boss, back to laser for stage 6 and back to missiles once more for the last stretch. :P

That's pretty close to how I do it. First two stages were laser, then missile for stage 3, back to laser for stage 4, then missile from the end of stage 5.

Not exactly sure what's going on here, but yea you can milk the stage 2 and 4 bosses for some extra points. Stage 2 boss isn't real hard, you just need to figure out how many of those side ships you can kill before he times out. Stage 4 boss can be milked with the laser for about 150,000 extra points, but it's pretty maddening. My estimated score if everything goes perfectly is around 10.5 to 11 million.

Despatche, I look forward to your hunter/fire replay.

I feel so excited about my huge improvement! :D , I never thought I'd ever get this far on 1 credit. I lost my last life as soon as the final boss opened fire.

Sorry if i doublepost but, CIT seems to be inactive now because his last visit was Dec 04, 2014.

Would someone please create a new topic?

Perikles - 8,752,500 - ALL

Video

Not too shabby for a first clear! Does anyone know the exact formula for the "Perfect" boni at the end of a stage? I got better results here than in a few failed runs before, yet not as many rewards.

Would anyone (Despatche?) like to take over the thread? Considering that CIT surrendered his Last Resort board and that this one hasn't been updated in a while it seems to be a fair assumption that it is up for grabs. If no one else is interested then I'll do the honours in a few days, have to salvage and tweak the Game Tengoku thread, anyway.

I think you have to grab all medals at max value in a stage for the Perfect bonus.

Nah, you can get some at not-max for sure, and miss some all-together I think. There might be some "score" for each type of medal and you have to reach some threshold per stage for it.

That could be. Initially I wrote that you just have to grab every medal, but I watched Perikles's video and he grabs them all in some stages and doesn't get it.
