The Garegga look & feel, the bomb chips...of COURSE there was going to be bomb milking too.

I think Twiddle said the trick was infinite - the points seem to add up that way - but it doesn't really feel like it yet.

It's not infinite. I've done a bunch of analysis, and the best scores I've gotten are 87.5k for the first life, 77.5k for the second, and 51k for the rest.

Didn't get to spend much time with the last game, so I tried to make an early start this week!

Klatrymadon - 126,530 - 4 - ShmupMAME 3.0b

Didn't try the milking technique - I'd only arse it up anyway. :P

If anything, the trick shows that the game is rather generous with extends. I bombed all eight blue ships (four, then four), and got myself a nice and tidy extend to make it through some of the tougher parts of the level. I got another one in level 3.

I did it really badly and still doubled my score. Anyway I'll concede failure if you're the only one to get to Stage 4!

A lot of people feel this way when they experience just how cheap st5 is.

Ooooohyeah!
Been wanting to play this one. Will hopefully get some time in before the week is over.
Next week looks like i'll actually have some free time (just got back from 7 days in the fields lol) so i'm hoping for Batrider by then. :wink:

Forgot how cool the fourth boss is. They're all a bit on the easy side, though, especially with autofire. St5 gets hairy quickly - not sure how much more headway I'll make this week.

(I'm clearly not bombing enough to score very well, here, but at this point I'm just playing for a quick 'n' dirty 1CC; the st2 milkers have got this one all sewn up. ;))

Hitting A a lot combined with possibly holding Insert made me miss the name entry and taking a screenshot when the ranking first showed up. This may or may not be my last score, as this game is frustrating; it reminds me of the reasons I don't play Gradius, but without much any redeeming factors.

Much happier overall with this run. I've been practicing stage 3; it's still a major problem spot for me, but hopefully by the end of the week I'll be able to hit stage 5. And then die horribly.

Im am most creamiest

DoubleThink - 732,510 - 2 - MAME Plus!

With slightly better optimisation on stage 1 and the second wave of blue ships, I might be able to hit the next extend at 740K. I'm not going to bother practicing after that because scoring this high drives the rank through the roof. Miss a single blue copter and it's game over :( I'd advise even those who hate milking to suicide once on stage 2, spending all their bombs for 160K and a solid 4-life stock.

Made it barely

DoubleThink - 800,020 - 2 - MAME Plus!

Missed a bombing on one blue ship just near the end. 800K was my target, but for some reason I still want to keep playing @_@ Good news for any who want to score (notably) higher: It's probably easier to reach a million by clearing stage 5 with a couple of lives in stock than via this method. The rank combined with the lack of power and bombs makes the game so much harder, and there are no more serious scoring opportunities for a long while... unless someone can find out where that extra million from the world record listed in the other thread comes from.

No, he actually likes this game. He also likes Bakraid. This is trap we're talking about.
