This is a great selection. GnG an obvious classic - maybe finally I will have motivation to try and progress further that then accursed second stage (the wind). Haven't played Mystic Riders but it seems like another Irem hit...great gameplay and stunning gfx.

Mystic Riders 26,500 28,200. I suspect the competition here is going to really heat up in the second week so maybe I have some time to actually get good at these games (neither of which I've played before). Ghouls 'n Ghosts is a beast.

Mystic Riders 32,800. I wish the boss on the first level (the snake thing) had a life meter. Anybody have any idea how many hits it takes to kill him? Do only head shots count?

Ghouls' n Ghosts - 19,000

Mystic Riders - 82,700

 

I think that's it for me & GnG. The stuff gets just way too hectic after the 1st boss. I think I'd rather concentrate on Mystic Riders. This game is one of the best shoot'em ups I've ever played. So much fun/to do.

 

EDIT: forgot the scr$ %) In the meantime did some 94K in MS. It's awesome...trying to collect as much as stars as possible and get better scores/bonuses for that is very addictive. But those blobs before 2nd boss....arrggh.

Mystic Riders 35,800. I know it's only a few thousand more than my previous score, but hell, I made it to the second level on a single credit and for me that's saying something. Mystic Riders 48,800. I know I'll take a couple more cracks at GnG but I think this is the game I'm going to focus on.

Mystic Riders 50,300. I know -- not a huge improvement but I take what I can. How do you get bonus points at the end of the level -- not dying at all?

Mystic Riders - 158,300

 

Managed to beat that 2nd boss...funnily enough my score wasn't that much better than the one when I did not beat him, but collected +500 stars on the 1st level. For that you get a whooping 60K bonus.

Mystic Riders: 119,200

 

Ghouls 'n Ghosts: 18,000

 

I finally managed to beat the 1st level in Ghouls 'n Ghosts... after all these years. I don't get the sand bridge section in level 2 though. It seems random.
