    Finally got some time to play the Parodius. Its fun, but some parts are pretty annoying, like the dancing girl.

    Parodius: 124,600 LGR

    Sadly, I don't think I'll get to give it another go. Glad I was able to get a handful of hours in on it.

    I keep spamming start and the action buttons during those sequences in the hope that someday the game finally understands I want to skip them. :p

    Did you ever try climbing up the wall above the first door between the three turrets and the virtual zone? You get an arena fight followed by a cheesy game ending.

    I feel like you're about to beat my highscore and I'm stuck here writing a conference paper with little time to do something about it :(

    Something stupid happened tonight.

    I was playing contra while waiting on my train. I had reached the boss of level four in a near perfect run and decided to create a savestate for future practice and continued to fight the boss. At the point that I reached the final phase of the boss fight my train arrived so I paused my game, closed my pandora and got in.

    Upon opening my unit again I noticed my savestate had been reloaded (oh crap :( , the R button, how could I forget). Upon unpausing the game the emulator was extremely laggy because my CPU was still downclocked so I immediately died. I waited for the framerate to recover, reloaded again and continued the boss-fight which went identical as before (perfect run), defeated him and continued to beat my high score with a new score of 270.100.

    My question to you guys. Is this a valid high score as I accidentally reset to the start of the boss-fight (to my own disadvantage, undoing a perfect run) or is this run too tainted to enter (After all I did load a save-state)?

    Naturally, I feel obliged to myself to beat this score in a single straight run and eliminate all doubt, but time is running out, so I might not manage.

    -Caine.

    Caine, I'd say that's cool with me. But I want you to beat it all the same. ;)

    As for me, I've been playing Parodius. I used to play Life Force an awful lot on the NES, and I have to say that I like this game a lot too. Oddly, I never got into the Gradius (Gradii?) games. I'll have to give those a shot now. I forgot how much I like this style of game. My score is below, but I'm going to beat that before the deadline.

    Parodius

    156,300
    179,100 David Bowman

    <edit> I find it utterly annoying how the game's difficulty increases exponentially when you have a lot of power ups.

    Nice summary ;) But, thanks. As my main rival, your opinion matters to me most.

    However, if you can do it once you can do it again: 273723 Fully legit this time.

    Damnit, all the high scorers are coming out now! For me, I finally managed to get Pentarou as far as the eagle boss (and a bit further). I should be able to beat this score, but I'm quite pleased with it so I'll put it up before I forget it:

    Parodius Da!
    123100
    151800 (switched back to Vic Viper)
    165500 (back to Pentarou!)

    @Caine I'd say savestates are permissable, if for example you don't have time to play a full session in one go. I'd say this is a special case of that. What we don't want is people creating savestates so they can cheat by reloading - you didn't do that, you created a savestate because your train came. I think that's the key - the intent when you make the savestate. I don't think savestates normally give you much benefit anyway - I find it hard to get back into the zone on starting at a save state.

    Well, I'm glad I managed to beat that score. It just didn't feel right.

    I have no issue with using savestates to just suspend your game until you have time to continue but loading back to a savestate for any reason but continuing where you stopped would be cheating (it's fine for practice but not for real scoring runs).

    This case was a bit on the border since it was an accidental savestate load and I didn't undo any mistakes. Well, problem solved anyway.

    <edit>Wow, this is turning out to be just the impulse I needed. Almost cleared the game on my last run. 321.495

    Flying pigs, farting sumos??? Mad, mad game lol

    What way do most people grab the screenshot of the score - play again, and just show the value on the highest score?

    Wow, well done. I don't think I'm going to have time for another run, and even if I did I don't think I'd get close to this. Looks like the round is yours, sir smile.gif

    Gah, damnit. I was pretty happy with that score and thought it got me well into the top three - only for the ground to shift under me right at the end!

    /throws toys out of perambulators etc.

    Well done chaps! Looks like the best man won in the end :)
