----------
This is a high-score board for Alpha Denshi's "hidden gem" of a shmup, released in 1989. JP/World versions seem to be identical with difficulty, but the US version has an altered main shot for the A type plane, no weapon change items ( but you can use button 3 to change between each plane type).

Defaults are: Lives:3, Difficulty: Normal

Fairly decent run I got for Calice Cup. Might work on 10.5k as a future goal.

Terribly mediocre score imo, but I'll add my piece (peace?). Choked on the st4 midboss. Mr. Craud is not a man to be made a fool of. Is it recommended to switch ships for some of the stages? I know Ship A is considered the best for milking the destructible bullets, but I seem to recall some people switching to B or so every now and then.

My Calice Cup 1cc - without autofire and focused on survival. This is the pace car to show what a "just clear the game" score looks like :)

Most of the surivival 1ccs I saw during the tourney used B for the vast majority of stages ( besides using ship A for stage 6 due to the midboss's speed). Even when I switched to mostly using the A ship for scoring, I still use B on stage 4 due to its power and that stage's ace score being completely impossible to get with any ship.

Seriously, who did advise him to use bats as weapons?

Ooooh thanks for this! I stumbled on a 3-button version a few years back and tried researching why it was different, but could find very little information. I also recall the 3-button version having faster midboss/boss timeouts, but I should hook it up and verify that.

I am so glad you made a thread for this, I've been meaning to play this.

Would having the Sky Soldiers board here be okay too, or would that be better as a separate topic?

Yo, I'm not entirely sure. I thought Sky Soldiers & Sky Adventure were independent of each other, and not a series ( despite sharing Sky in the name, you can correct me if I'm wrong about that).

Sky Solders is a very different game.

The point Despatche was making (and what he routinely does in his score topics) is combine multiple games, or sequels from a single company in a single scoreboard (e.g. his thread having Image Fight and Image Fight 2: Operation Deepstriker). Probably for organization/cut down on superfluous topics. I mean, it's a take-it-or-leave it thing in my mind.

Also: gah, my score is that low on this board? Don't be shy everyone; post your scores here and join me on the low-tier.

Ah, that makes sense. I don't mind adding it in that case tbh; probably by later today or tomorrow.
- edit: Table added for sky soldiers ( 12/11)

Thank you! I would actually prefer to have every game or version (not the straight ports, more things like wildly NES ports of arcade games) in its own topic, but there just aren't enough people playing these games to justify it in most cases.

Sky Soldiers doesn't have as many fun memes, but as a game it's not very much worse than Sky Adventure. I imagine there's an infinite pattern somewhere or something, but I'm sure Sky Adventure has one too. They're related as much as Ikari and Dogosoken are.
