A mythically themed 1988 Namco shmup with options, special weapons, an easy and hard mode, and a kick-ass weapon awaiting near the end. You're Apollo riding your majestic Pegasus on a journey to rescue Artemis (the damsel in distress).

Submit in this format:
Name - Score - Chapter reached

PCB defaults:
LEFT [lives left] is 3.
LIFE [hit points] is 2.
EXTEND setting is B.
RANK setting is B.
RANK SELECT is OFF. (If ON, play the HARD version)


I'm going to use the same style the game's high score table uses (plus some enhancements). I'll also start this high score table off with a crap score of mine.

ARCADE VERSION
Code:
RANK      |         NAME || RANK      |         NAME

MD Genesis version.
Advanced mode :
UGO - 1,297,780 - All Clear.

Got a higher score (easily on the fourth boss) but without the All Clear.

Mega Drive Version (Advanced)

Image

Perikles – 3,927,740 – ALL

Originally, I just wanted to submit my regular score but since you guys decided to milk the hell out of this game I felt compelled to do the same. :P

The milking is strong with this game!

Image

MD, Advanced Course

EmperorIng - 1,263,630 - ALL

Is there a way to unlock the Expert Course without having to beat the game? Talk about sucking the motivation out of you. Then again, just from playing the first two levels, I barely noticed a difference between the Advanced and Expert courses outside of a few extra waves of enemies.

Let's spruce up the scoreboards with a couple of sorely needed clears, shall we?

Arcade - Easy

Image

Perikles - 810,640 - ALL

Video


Arcade - Hard

Image

Perikles - 712,100 - ALL

Video

Both videos may not be available in the US, Australia and New Zealand but I'm sure there are ways to circumvent that. Those Namco games (more specifically their soundtracks) sure are hot stuff. :shock:

Pretty happy with both runs. I squeezed a lot of points out of the Easy clear by performing that silly double K.O. against the mage gauntlet several times, but I'm definitely not brave enough to learn this trick against the TLB on Hard. He took me a while to figure out since he's borderline impossible if you do him the wrong way despite the simplistic nature of the fight. Lost one life too many on Hard, but the fourth boss is tricky as well, so I'm not unduly desponded.

I also changed my opinion on this game a few times while playing it. At first I was really looking forward to it since I adore a lot of Namco shmups, I like the MD port and I immediately fell in love with the beautiful graphics (it's just a joy to look at the settings, the enemies and all those zooming effects). Then I was repelled by some of the weird decisions the staff made (some awkward sections/boss fights where you're struggling with the hitbox, inconsistencies with lethal/harmless terrain, the questionable on-screen bullet limit etc.), culminating in a nadir when I first battled the TLB who cannot be beaten at full rank. After a little break and a more thorough look I started to delectate the game again, particularly the fifth stage has a sprinkle of an Irem game with the safespot for the exploding balls. It's not entirely unlike Dragon Saber which also has some infuriating traits even though it is overall a lovely title.

The reason why the videos get blocked is because of Youtube Red, which circumvents Japan's copyright law. Since Victor owns the music rights to most of Namco's arcade soundtrack releases, they've been pretty active in blocking videos.

Anyways, congrats on the arcade Hard clear! I've only gotten halfway through Hard due to its difficulty, but your video has some good strategies, especially when explaining the 4th stage boss and 5th stage hazards. That last stage was pretty evil when I was testing it out; I'm guessing that's the hardest part of the game right there.
