I'm pleased with the Salamander run, no miss until 2-3 where I lost 2 quick lives, then I managed to make until near the end of 2-6 on my last life (died on the Moai heads).


Updated!

That's impressive, congratulations! I think I should pick this up again.. :P

PS. sorry for slow update, I had a hell of a busy week.

I used to think I'd never clear this in a million years so I'm happy to pull it off now.

Great job Mero! the 1cc for Salamander 2 is exhilarating, especially the final stages.

Thanks! Yeah the rank gets pretty brutal after a while, my technique is to no miss till about halfway through stage 5, wait til I'm surrounded by power ups and then suicide. Playing with twin lazer helps greatly as well (it's this realisation that enabled me to finally clear it).

A lot of carelessness and lucky dodges in this run, but it's an improvement and I'll gladly take it.

Decided to just mess around with this a bit after all the Salamander for the shooting game tournament and ended up clearing it on my very first try :) Seems a lot tighter than Salamander to me even though its mostly the same game.

Score from the shmup tag team compo thingy:

Salamander (Aracade)
Edge - 1'044'900 - 2-3 - MAME

Not a big fan of the game, too much memorization required and the pacing of the stages is a bit weird / counter intuitive too.

You beat my old score by 20'000+ ..dang.

Only thing that upsets me in this game is that you are obliged to play second time every time to play it, in order to survive lvl 4 boss (as the orbs won't clutter the screen by that time)

Haha, maybe it gives you an incentive to play the game again. :)

This boss is totally weird. I only beat that guy with an exploit, whn you go close to the ceiling the orbs of the left turret will get stuck in the walls. Don't know about the second time trick.

Thanks for the entries; submitted.

Also, sorry for slight delay before updating - it seems that the forum notifies me of new replies only when I have replied myself (and I don't always have time to check my threads)

But keep 'em coming! I'm still hoping to find time to play these myself :)

I didn't know about the brain-golem trick. Holy shit you get a lot of points for that.

The 100k trick in stage 4 put me past the second extend and gave me the extra life I needed to finally 1cc this. (There's like a snowball effect in this game. When you get points you get more points.) This is my second ever arcade shooter 1cc!

Died fighting the Brain Golem trying to do the trick again. So close.

I hate rank as a mechanic and the voodoo it inspires. At one point I was trying to score as low as possible because I heard a rumor that score affected rank.

Salamander 2
God - 706,300 - 2-1 - PS

Woo, top ten!

Finally, 1 credit clear on Salamander 2 after six years since buying Salamander Portable. I also managed to find a way to kill the Brain Golem at Stage 1 quickly, just by bringing 2 options, though the Super Cobra has a higher chance of obtaining it at the start of the game.

iirc powerups are entirely determined by actions taken, player side has no effect

Please make a new post if you obtain a new high score, rather than updating your post. Otherwise I won't get the mail notification, and if I dont get the notification, the scoreboard won't be updated :)

Played it once again, with a decent 1 loop clear this time, with only 2 deaths. Unfortunately, loop 2 has blasted me off again... :(
