If you get knocked out, you can still compete in the NES HSC, but your score will not count towards the knockout tournament. So I'll be posting 2 sets of results for each round.

 

This round's game was picked by me.

215,780 (still shocked Nintendo of America, who wanted 0% religion visible in any game, still allowed the Star of David to appear in the game)

C'mon, Powerpak!...arrriiiive, already, lol! I've never played this game but have heard lots about it over the years, a Tecmo classic. I was more into Rygar in those days!

I didn't realize this was a puzzle game; never tried it, but there's something cool about it. Tecmo music is always a bonus...I'll keep trying at this one.

 

2nd attempt: 88,010

There's something fun about this game for sure, and I'm trying to figure out each level on its own without internet help (youtube vids, that kinda thing). I can imagine it gets pretty stupid hard later on, but I can't get past the fifth level just yet...trying to make sense out of the Japanenglish instruction manual!

When is this round officially over? I'd like to try and get another score in.

How are you maximizing score in the levels your doing, my GDV is higher but score is lower... :( May have my 2nd runner up this KO season :(

Well, I took another run at it. I guess I'm just going to have to admit defeat. Congratulations on your high score cparsley. Here's my small improvement:

 

345,730

I made it to level 11, but I ran out of lives trying to figure out how to beat it. On my last guy I think I solved it, but I ran out of time before I could finish. Stupidly I wasn't paying attention to the time and went for the key before the "time potion." Maybe next time. Fun game though. Good last KO round.

Cparsley won the round, and the knockout tournament. We'll be starting a new season shortly.
