No miss to stage 9, where I got greedy for points and died trying to grab a speed up for points. Chain deathed through the rest of the game because no speed and then got brutalized on loop 2.

Did a little worse than my 2P side clear, and like the 2P side clear, I did a shameful chain death through stages 9 and 10 again. Last boss killed me just before it timed out and I wasn't able to kill it. Sadness.

Getting better, but still need lots of practice. This doesn't actually seem completely impossible.

That's a pretty big number, congrats! Crazy to think such a nice port of this game is on the Switch of all things, like it's no big deal.

I took a hit very early on in stage 5, but I managed to use my checkpoint recovery routes to get to stage 8, no-missed stages 8/9 while recovering to full power, and took that life to 10-05 and using most of my remaining lives to reach the final checkpoint & beat the boss.

I would defenitely recommend crossfish's guide if you want to beat the game; its one of the best resources out there for clearing this game: https://crossfish.sakura.ne.jp/same/TOP/top.html

I don't think I ever put up a Fire Shark score, and I want to get the 1CC on this eventually, so I guess this is a starting point or something.

Randomly puts game disc in despite not knowing what to play
Waffles around in menu for a while, eventually chooses Fire Shark, plays game for first time in like 3 weeks
"WTF where is my autofire? Fuck it, too lazy to turn it on so I will just play it this way"
Plays super terribly, almost clears game

Played the Japanese 2P version for the first time in about a year. Did not practice at all and it shows. Still somehow beat my old 2P side score.

Should that be 02-16-09 or 02-06-09? Well, whatever. I finally got the clear, which is good because Zero Fire releases tomorrow.

Okay, here is the replay: https://youtu.be/3e3R473u4tY

I thought it didn't get everything because I only checked the first few seconds, but it did barely get everything. I'm too lazy to take it down and edit it or whatever, so it actually starts 30 seconds in.

I'll put the replay up later, I guess. It will take forever for it to finish transferring from the PS5 and then an additional forever for stupid Youtube to process it.

Okay, here is the replay: https://youtu.be/Woa0j8rIKF0

I kind of hate recovery in games that respawn you in place after dying and also have speed powerups, by the way. I always feel like the first death leads to an inevitable chain death.

Guess I'd better explain myself, my apologies. For the AREA field, the first two digits are for loop, the second two digits are for stage (which goes up to 10), and the last two digits are for the per-stage "parsec"/"area" concept that a lot of Toaplan games were using. This is based on what the game does, but the game doesn't count loops separately (so something like 2-1 would be written as "11-??" by the game), that's something I added. I know people can loop this game entirely too much, the counter does stop at some point, and I wanted to avoid a mess like I currently have with Slap Fight (which I really need to fix). Yes, I should probably do this for the MD boards as well, but I wanted to wait for someone to actually hit 99 first. I'm pretty sure Mills's arcade Fire Shark score actually hit displayable stage 99, at least.

Made it a lot further but my score barely went up. You lose a huge amount of points if you die or bomb. Don't die or bomb if you can help it. Clear coming eventually...?

BTW you put my Fire Shark 2P side clear in the 1P side thing. It's the #4 one. The #8 score is my terrible 1P side score that I need to improve.

I'm bummed I just decided to quit after the first loop. At the time I was only playing for a survival 1cc. Didn't realize I could have gotten a killer score and maybe topped the board here.

You can pan the screen to only destroy the right blimp ( for the P, left blimp gives a speed up) right before the boss. Otherwise, the bouncing weapon item gets in the way of your boss pointblank & you'll likely die.

Thanks, ggmaximo. I am currently learing this game by watching a lot of Kuuya-hiro (空谷碑路) livestream. He's my inspirational not because of good skills or anything, it because of watching his livestream was very epic.

My training result after watching a lot of 空谷碑路's livestream

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwppko-ALQ0

Due to my Google Pixel 8 stopped recording after 10 minutes, i'll make a summary for the rest of the run: No miss until midway through stage 4, near the boss (where i got sniped by the tank on the right corner), then chain death at the fourth boss because i didn't attempted to find any safe spot to time it out (not prepared for it either, will watch Cross Fish video of that checkpoint). Arrived at stage 5 with no lives left, i was pretty scarry and quickly died soon after.

And sorry for can't capture the score, which is approximately around 600k
