This game is a tad bit underrated in my opinion. It consists of many short segments filled with diverse enemy types and varied terrain, it features quite a few neat bosses and shows off some amazing Engrish. It kinda plays like an easier version of Rabio Lepus (Special) due to all those homing missiles.

As is always the case, one credit only.

Please submit your scores in the following format:

Name – Score – Stage

Down Load:
Code:
   Name           Score     Stage     
1. Ex_Mosquito   999,900     ALL
1. Perikles      999,900     ALL
3. PlasmaBlooD   560,300     ALL     
4. Kollision     554,100     ALL
5. 


Down Load 2:
Code:
   Name           Score     Stage   
1. Ex_Mosquito    93,860     ALL
2. Perikles       93,620     ALL
3. UGO            93,450     ALL
4. Kollision      86,110     ALL     
5. 


Edit: decided to add Down Load 2!

Since I just cleared it I might as well append Down Load 2 to this existing score thread.

Image

Perikles - 84,500 - ALL

Edit: Looks like the other host I used is out of business, added a working picture.

Tried a One-Life. But this is a 1-Miss just before destroying the final boss. :evil:

Down Load 2

Image

Perikles - 86,230 - ALL

Unfortunately lost a life on the seventh boss which cut my score down quite a bit. Also completely forgot how to fight against the final form of mecha/bio/brain Hitler and just outlasted him with all my lives in reserve. :lol:

Lovely little game. Its a shame there is no higher difficulty option, I feel the game is overly generous on giving you power-ups and energy when you really don't deserve it.

Ex_Mosquito - 577,400 - ALL

Ah well, it turns out the console infinite-scoring curse is in Download :( It doesn't that take long to achieve either and can be done in less than an hour. If you destroy all the parts on the stage 5 boss and leave the last 4 central missile guns you can position yourself to the far left of the screen and get 400points every couple of seconds by doing as little as weighing down the fire button walking away and making a cup of tea.

It's a real shame because I worked out a cool way to legitimately get extra points by point-blank cancelling the enemy bullets with the secondary side home missiles for a meaty score boost. It's so strange why they didn't put in a boss timer, it makes no design sense and is pretty obvious.

As unfortunate as it is, more 16-bit games are broken than not. Most of those infinite milking possibilities stem from destructible projectiles/goons, a few have endlessly repeatable checkpoints, and a handful loop forever with no/marginal increase in difficulty. This does not only affect console-exclusives (Battle Mania (Daiginjou counterstops no matter what, too), Cho Aniki, Coryoon, Curse, Darius Force, Eliminate Down, Gleylancer, Gunhed, Musha Aleste, Phalanx, Power Gate, Rayxanber III, Soldier Blade, Star Parodier, Super Aleste, Thunder Force II & IV, Twinkle Tale, Undeadline*...) but even arcade ports (Area 88, Heavy Unit (MD), Parodius Da! (both PCE & SFC), Phelios, Task Force Harrier EX, Vapor Trail, Viewpoint, Zero Wing (MD)...). It is equally funny and tragic that some of the worst games are unaffected by such a flaw whereas some of the best are irrevocably tainted.

However the case may be, would you wish me to change your score to 999,990, Ex_Mosquito? You did get that result, after all. Down Load 2 does not have such a problem at least as far as I know. How regretful it is considerably worse than the first Down Load. :lol:

*I know, technically not a console-exclusive. :P

Wow, I didn't realise there were so many, the arcade ports are surprising. Such a shame, it seems like such an easy thing to implement.

You may as well leave my score as it is, scoring is kinda redundant on this game it seems :( Such a shame.

Perikles – 999,900 – ALL

Added Ex_Mosquito's counterstop score as well, the score rolls over after that as you can see.


Down Load 2

Perikles - 93,620 - ALL

No exploits in this game, though!

Ex_Mosquito - 93,860 - ALL 1LC

Better than the first game but still has the same problem of overpowered weapons and too many shields. I wished they’d made a harder mode, this game could’ve been so much better.
