New thread here!

Around 15 years ago, Hudson along with other game companies held Summer Carnival -competitions in which gamers would challenge the games' special modes for prizes and fame. Those days are long gone, but the challenge remains...

The lists show the Top 10 players only.

Format: "Your name - Score" for score attacks, "Your name - Time" for time attacks. Add " - ship used" to the end if applicable. And please use commas in your score (1,234,567 instead of 1234567). Follow the format or your score will not be added to the lists.

Ah, you added Recca this go-round, I had been thinking about making a high score thread just for it.

Recca, in FCE Ultra:
Score attack: shiftace - 515,153
Time Attack: shiftace - 4:10:30

These scores are pretty old...

If somebody posts a score for it I'll add it. I didn't even know it had caravan stages, to be honest.

Summer Carnival '92 - Recca -

Score Attack

338448

Time Attack

5.00.00
I'm not sure but it seems that time stops at 5.00.00 , I think we have to add also highscore in the time attack if this is true..

The idea of Time Attack is to reach a pre-determined amount of points in the shortest time possible. 5:00:00 is the "deadline", if you can't collect the necessary points by that time you've failed. So there's no need for highscore there, since the score is always the same after successfully clearing the mode, it's just the time taken to reach that score that we're looking for here.

EDIT: Played some Star Parodia for the first time in a while, added my scores on that one.

Some low scores from an undedicated player:


- Caravan games -

Final Soldier
. . 2mn: 589400
. . 5mn: 1392800

Soldier Blade
. . 2mn: 377200
. . 5mn: 847800

Star Parodia
. . 2mn: 528270


- Carnival games -

Spriggan
. . 285410
. . 3:53:10

Nexzr
. . 418240
. . 4:56:02

And there is a Caravan version of Gunhed, named Gunhed Taikai. Forget about getting the HuCARD (Gunhed Special Version), but the rom is out there. So you can add Gunhed if you think it belongs here.

Welcome aboard seb, nice to see fresh blood here. :D What ship did you use for the Star Parodia score?

I'm aware of Gunhed Special Edition, but since nobody seems to be playing it (ie. hasn't posted a score) I've opted to leave it out for now.

Oh, and this goes for all of you (except shiftace), please post your scores in the proper format, makes it easier for me to edit the scores in.

Thanks, I wish I was fresh blood. But I'm a long time user (since the shmups mk2 forum) I just don't post often. Of course I like a good welcome every now and then, so cheers.

My new Soldier Blade score:
seb - 444,800

I don't remember which ship I used for Parodia, I'll check if the Duo remembers it. Chances are it was the Paro Ceaser.

I just picked up Spriggan to clear up my "you should be able to 1CC these, so get with the program"-pile. Took a stab at Score Attack, too:

Spriggan

Ah, right, in the old forums there was a separate thread for that game by someone else. Just post your scores and I'll add 'em.

:shock: That's... ungodly. Impossible, maybe. 7 digits? The highest I ever saw anywhere else online is about 530k.

My normal record is 4,907,920 in 18:08:48, with I think 2 deaths.

They're mostly PC Engine games by Hudson, the first post explains Caravan Mode(s). Recca was a Famicom game and not made by Hudson.

As for normal mode Recca... I don't think I ever cleared it in over 20 minutes, definitely never over 21 minutes. All of the boss fights can be won in 10 seconds or less, especially if you use the B weapon. There's no score advantage to playing fast, though, because you get 100 points for eating a bullet and 5 points/frame for not firing with a fully charged bomb (also, 1 point/frame while the bomb charges, which takes 128 frames). I found all this because Recca was the first shmup I played very seriously, and I played the hell out of it for several months, so I got to observe a lot.

Some day... maybe I'll break 525k score attack. Or 4 minutes time attack. Or maybe write an ST.

I played the game very seriously during 1 week for the oldschool competition. I studied the score attack level.. I was lucky to have some free time at that point, so I could play for many hours in each day.
After that, I still played the game for a while, I even thought about writing a faq for it... but then I just didn't do it :)

Does the time keeps running after you finish the game, while showing the credits? If it does, then maybe this can explain why my high time :)

That last boss is crazy ,isn't it? The first time I got into it, I thought "HELL, that's IMPOSSIBLE!"

The timer does stop about a second or two after the final boss dies. And yes, it's an amazingly brutal opponent. Usually, if I get there with 2 spare lives, I can just outlast it, since it has low armor. But with less than 2 lives, my chance of success drops to about 10%. Are there any other games where a boss moves faster than you do, all the time?
