This thread is a bit of a work-in-progress but it will be cleaned up over the next day or so. There are a lot of versions but I won't add the PS1, NGCP, or other obscure ports unless there is a concerted demand. I was even waffling on the Arcade version honestly, since i think the real meat is going to be the Reboot and X68k. However, I figured I might as well have the two popular legacy Cotton games included here as well.

Might try a few runs with Silk and see how it goes. Thanks for the topic up!

No problem; I'll still need to take time to import the old arcade scores from the previous thread, but I wanted to at least give a small space for the new game up and running. I also updated the posting guidelines for the caravans, which I forgot about.

With that being said, I finally got the clear last night! I went into the last boss blind, but thankfully I had enough lives to tank through the fight - though it was getting close.

This had some poorly-timed Jewel Fevers throughout, so I think with some solid practice I could inch past 700 million. I'd love to get a score of over 1 billion as a solid goal to work towards.

Mistiming your fevers when there aren't enough enemies around can really mess you up, scorewise. I still don't know if turning all the crystals onscreen into black crystals is worth it score-wise (only 32,000 points per crystal). It would seem to be the smartest to use them after a boss but you cannot shoot or attack after a boss dies. For score you really gotta milk these guys as far as you can go. It's just hard keeping crystals onscreen long enough for it to work (especially on the Death boss fight on stage 2).

marus-MPO - 986,890 - ALL - PS4 (1.04) - video

Thanks EmperorIng for taking this thread over! I randomly decided to play a few credits of this today, and managed to get a 1CC on video. That said it's lower than my previous score (which was done on emulator), but I figured I might as well post it since I got the video.

I'm not sure why this score's so much lower than my previous 1CC to be honest. From a survival perspective this run went way better (I only lost one life in this run, whereas my previous run came down to my final life). My previous run was done on emulator - it's possible that there's some scoring differences between this and the original release, but to be honest I'm not too familiar with the scoring in this game. It could also just be that I got much luckier on my last run :)

I also tried Reboot mode a little bit but I got my butt handed to me real quick, haha. I'm glad they fixed the bullet visibility in the latest patch though! That was my biggest problem with the game before, so I'll probably give it another shot now that it's updated.

No problem Marus! I try to take the initiative on games I like - and a few games I don't, as well, ha.

As for scoring differences, I can't say if there are any... who knows if you might have destroyed more rocks from one of those Haniwa midbosses or something. Thanks for bringing it up; hopefully you just got lucky, which means you'll get lucky again some time. :P

Reboot mode is a good deal of fun. I just got another 1cc, this time with Appli! Her shot is much stronger so I had a much easier time; knowing how the later stages worked certainly helped, too! I breezed past my previous Cotton score and I was so close to a clean 800 million... Oh well! I almost had a jewel fever kill on Wool, the last boss, but I ran out of time just before it happened. Timing your jewel fevers in this game can be pretty tricky.
