Want to make sure I'm playing this right...  we keep playing until we run out of continues and get that score?

Darn it!  I played for about 30 min last night and had a good round going but thought I had messed up and played more than one credit and quit... gah!  Should have kept going and kept the score.  I took a pic when I let the continues expire and still had 4 credits left anyway.  Will try again tonight... Going ahead and posting it just in case it was a fluke and I dont get close again...

Also, I don't know why my phone photos always turn out sideways unless I edit them first... posted on my phone, so it's gonna have to stay sideways for the moment...  sorry

Crap! I didn't realize the high score competition was finally underway. I had been checking here every couple days earlier this year, but after awhile I gave up and forgot about it, and now I've missed the first two rounds. Oh well.

Here's my score for Raiden. I found that the secret to this game is to just let your hand go numb so you can hammer away on the fire button without the pain. I'd really like to put some more time into this, but in case I don't get the chance I'll post this now.

Tried several more times and finally had a bit of a break through game...  first time ever completing the first loop!  Man it gives you a pretty decent bonus, too!

Ha!  Thanks.  I probably won't be able to compete in many more of the games as I don't have them.  Might be able to get ROMs of a couple, but even then it's iffy if I can get them to work.  I almost abandoned that last run because of some stupid deaths early on, but then thought, "I've still got a lot of credits, maybe it'll go better after this..."  lol

I was able to beat my score by a little. I'd really like to 1CC this game some day, but the furthest I've gotten on one credit is 1-3. My current hi-score is 1,976,780.

Thanks masematte :)

 

Managed to improve my score, and still messed up big time as the enemy's bullets get faster and more accurate as you progress.

Great scores people!  I'm not worthy!!  Someday...

 

I do love this game, have played it more than any other SHMUP at this point.

 

My question to you, blue laser or red shots?  I think the blue laser is better fully powered...

 

Will have the next round up soon!

My question to you, blue laser or red shots?  I think the blue laser is better fully powered...

 

 

It depends... for example, the first level I use red shots and homing missiles, right before the boss I switch to blue laser.

The second level, red shots and homing missiles all the way, don't kill the boss, just wait in the lower right corner and shoot the bee-like planes until the boss dissapears and you exit the level.

 

The blue weapon is absolutely the most powerful, but not good for levels filled with kamikaze enemy-planes.

 

Further, I don't have an exact strategy, but I think that players will automatically develop a strategy the more they play this game :)

Okay, trying that for the second level boss soon.  Wonder if that works in the TurboGrafx version.  (Probably not...)

I prefer the red Vulcan and regular missiles in the first three stages, and the blue laser and homing missiles after that.

The TurboGrafx port of Raiden is weird. The first stage has lots of extra enemies added, so it's much harder than most of the other versions. But once you get to the second stage, it's super easy (probably because you're more powered-up) and stays that way until the boss of the third stage. When you have your Vulcan cannon maxed out, it seems much more powerful than in the other versions.
