What a strange game! I heard of this one before but never tried it out. I will have to go back to emulation for this one.

Let's take a second and check out the top 3 Twin Galaxies scores

1 168,560 Mark A Stacy Jun 19 2011
2 159,030 Jared I Bryant Oct 06 2010
3 136,860 Aaron D Sanders Jul 09 2001


I just played through the game an finished with 120430. Granted I've never played it before and I know I missed a few points but it didn't feel like I missed 50k. I might be able to get another 10-12k out unless I discover something else I missed.

It does not emulate correctly with Pro System.
I tried with 1.2 1.3 and 1.3e

Somebody have a suggestions for another emulator?

Yes I completed it.

I'm using MESS .143 I like it. Looks like wolfMAME but you don't select the ROMs from the same window. Just select the system you are wanting to play then double click the ROM in the next window over.

http://www.mess.org/

You will need the a7800 ROM for it to work. Just put both the a7800 ROM and the game ROM in the same folder.

At lease you're seeing something.
This is what I have with Pro SYstem 1.3 + Windows 7 64bit
I can see the Ninja with the Club at the beginning and then nothing!

Me too.
Thanks.


1- Download Mess from this link: http://www.mess.org/downloads
2-Extract it.
3-copy the a7800.zip file in the roms folder
4-Start MESS
5-Select the Atart 7800 NTSC from the system list. (see images below)
6-in the right pan click on Device view and click ... button and them Mount and browse for the ninja golf rom
7-Click on picker tab in the right side pan.
8-double click on ninja golf.

Note: I'm sure there is a way to point to the rom folder to see all the available roms but I don't know how.
I have a mess installation with all the system roms at home, I'll will verify that tonight.

Okay. I played through this one again. I am positive I missed 4k but came up short of my other score by like 500 points. I wonder where the other 50k is hidden. Either way, I think I am safe this week :)

A few hints.
  • I save my stars for the "ground hogs?" I don't know what they are but they throw rocks at you from the ground. I also use a few on the water parts when I get too many enemies and sharks on the screen to help minimalize damage.
  • I turn around every few steps. I don't walk all the way back to the left or anything. I turn flash back behind me. I've noticed I do not miss as many power ups that way.
  • On the dragons, dont worry so much about killing him but more on dodging his fireballs. The level is not timed so protecting yourself is of greater value. You will eventually kill him even if you are only throwing random stars.
  • Know you kicks. There are only 3 different kicks. Forward + Kick kills most enemies. Up+Forward + Kick will take down the upper sharks. Down+Forward + Kick. You can kick the frogs, snakes, and even the ground hogs.
  • Most levels can be beat in 2 swings. Not sure if this helps your overall points or not but 2 swings is 7k and 3 swings is 6k.
I still have not found a way to kill the birds. Maybe that is my missing points.

Maybe if you go more often in the water and long grass you will get more point by killing the sharks and the frogs...Especially Sharks.
