This game is unforgiving. Hope you have an eidetic memory and the reflexes of an android.

I PMed S.BAZ two days ago, reminding him of this, but he hasn't logged in to Atari Age since then. As long as he plays and posts any decent score he should get the season win, because I don't think I can do much better than this. Just can't get the timing for jumps right.

Managed to beat Green Planet. Act 3 of Red Planet looks like something you need to have fully memorized to get anywhere.

you said it Don, the jumping is a PAIN in this game!

I made it a little farther (continuing) a couple years ago when I first played this

really challenging but it would be fun to get good at it. I'm sure I would have played a lot if I'd had it back in the day...

made it to the boss but wasn't fast enough to get a pic...

 

from what I've seen in the other levels I'm definitely not getting much further than this in time

looks like you got it Don, congrats!

and thanks for the heads-up :)

Thanks, guys.

 

That was a good season, the highlights for me surely being Recca and Blade Buster - two excellent shoot em ups, not only in NES/FC context, but also looking at the bigger picture of the genre as a whole. Bucky O'Hare was a very good game in a genre I'm not a fan of. The golf game - completely not my cup of tea, but it was undeniably a good one too. Solar Jetman as well.

 

Looking forward to the next season.
