3 lives, 3 bombs. I currently do not know how the arcade version's difficulty settings work, but I know that the game defaults to the same difficulty that's called "Arcade" in the ports.

Avoid Practice or Very Easy, and don't use a 50Hz version.

DETAILS is for what model of console and release of cart/disc, or what emulator and version. There are five versions of the game: arcade Type-X, PS2 (+regions), PC by CyberFront, arcade NESiCA, and PC by H2 (+Steam and GOG).

Fun game! Classic Raiden formula but with smaller hitbox and not as strict routing.

I followed a guy on twitter who was playing this a lot. That reminded me that I wanted to play it too.

Raiden V is almost totally superior, but there are some things I like more about III. Stage 3 boss milking is pretty fun, and I especially like how much more punishing this is. V doesn't penalize you much for deaths, and the Director's Cut especially just showers you with resources, so at least from a survival standpoint there's very little tension. I suppose that's just the difference between arcade and console games though. Other than that V is an improvement in basically every way, but III's still very good.

I think Moss just got scared they were making such a long game, honestly. That's usually how it happens: dev tries to make a longer game for consoles, and they add resources as a consequence. It's really not necessary, a lot of these games could use way less resources, but whatever.

I'm astounded how anyone can clear this at arcade level.....

And some have got to level 6 in double mode. :shock:

I'm trying to clear this on Easy and it's murdering me - I just don't get on with it - that bullet speed and ship speed is tortuous. I hate dialling down the difficulty but I was finding it too frustrating. My current score is 13m getting to level 7.

Any hints re managing rank or anything like that would most welcome.

1CC on Easy PS2. 14.7m

At last. Cut me slack - I'm 54 next month. This was much tougher than my Darius Gaiden clear. So relieved.

I'm just glad to see someone play Easy. Welcome to the boards!

You may want to type your submission out in case your image gets deleted. I don't trust any image host anymore.
