I can do, yeah.

I'll update your score on Sunday btw, when I'm on a computer.

Aero Fighters arcade
Vludi - 886,400 - 2-4 - Kohful

First 1-All. Loop 1 is similar to Psikyo stuff, loop 2 isn't much harder than the first loop though, seems doable.

You should go for the WWR. :P

Well, I did manage to get first place for Sonic Wings (which, call me superstitious all you want, I still find noticeably more awkward than Aero Fighters by dint of higher rank):

Very happy with my arcade Sonic Wings run, only one death on the monkey in loop 2, outside of too many bombs in 2-5 I'm extremely satisfied. Too many credits ended with some outrageous hits on the 2-6 jets or somewhere in 2-7, mostly in conjunction with some bomb not triggering because of the awful lag in this game. Never going to play either Sonic Wings or Aero Fighters arcade again.

Will play the SFC version once more, though! I played this on Snes9x with external autofire, not going to bother without it anymore. I'll try to get an autofire controller for my console and then a better score, shouldn't be too difficult provided the controller does what it's supposed to do. There are a few sections that are harder than they are in the arcade game (the Japan boss in particular), the most idiotic/aggravating parts are much easier on the other hand, and considerably more fun as well.

I was also completely wrong about Rabio, a 2-ALL with him is much harder than with Kohful. Yes, he is much more powerful than the rest of the cast, but the rank goes crazy after a while. If you don't die by 1-6 (which is essentially 1-5 since Rabio has an additional stage) the bullet speed is faster than it ever will be over the course of both loops for the other characters.

Since I am playing the Super Famicom version right now, which will be a feature game in a Retro Gaming Expo in Manila, I only got one question. Any idea on how the 1UPs pop-up in random? In one occasion while playing as Hien, it popped up on the right side turret before the boss.

I've recently played this one again on real hardware and I'm 99.99% sure it's completely random. You're most likely to receive the extend (if it spawns at all) during the Moscow stage on account of all the turrets being there. Amusingly enough, you can only hold four lives total (or three additional lives displayed in the upper left corner), if the game releases an extend while you have that many lives, you'll only gain 10,000 points.

And since I'm posting here, I might as well also add the aforementioned score:


Sonic Wings - SFC

Perikles - 1,144,000 - ALL - Kohful


I used an Ascii Pad for autofire purposes in this run. I'm very pleased with the result, I only died on the final boss in the second loop once.

Super Famicom
tinotormed - 1,127,000 - 2-8 - Rabio

Had fun at Retro Gaming Expo Manila 2019, and one of the featured free play on the Super Famicom is this game.

As I have said, wishful thinking for a 2-ALL if I wasn't rudely interrupted but had to due to strict schedules as the unit will be used for a Street Fighter tournament.

Seems Rabio has nearly a lot of advantages that many fighters do not have such as a small hitbox, powerful shot type, search laser sub-weapon and powerful bomb but requires getting close to the enemy to use, hence a separate cstegory for him.

Added KoopaTGR's Aero Fighters score at long last, I completely missed it last time.
