NES High Score Club Round 5 - G.I. Joe

Recommended Posts

The game for this round is G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.

 

If you've never played this game before you can jump right into it, but at some point I suggest reading the manual. Here is a link.

 

Here are a few tips to start off:

  1. Characters can change from hand-to-hand to weapon mode by pressing select.
  2. All characters can throw grenades by pressing up and B when in hand-to-hand mode.
  3. The second stage of each mission requires finding all the check marks and then locating the exit.

This was one of my favorite rentals as a kid. I remember it being a really fun game. I haven't played it in years.

I see the manual says nothing about scoring. I'm wondering how are you guys getting so many points? I've gotten far enough to beat the guy with the bird (level 4-3 according to the manual). But I still only had a little over 190k, which is all I scored in my 1st attempt! And I didn't even beat the first boss that time.

The guy with the bird is only 1-2.

Yes, the first boss with the bird is level 1-2. But I completely understand the confusion regarding the manual. It took me a few minutes to spot that the 1-2 boss even has a bird in his picture.

Anyway, I'm personally not doing anything special to score points. I'm just trying to advance as far as I can. I haven't been paying too much attention to points as I play, but it seems like you get a decent bonus for each boss defeated and an even better bonus for each mission completed.

I see. Well at any rate I got to several different areas and several bosses (I think 4?), and yet still only scored the same amount of points as when I never made it past the 1st area and died at the first boss. Maybe I just need a few more runs for it to make sense.

 

190k 196k 212k

 

212,650

 

Ok so I'm making it to the snowfield.

 

Interesting game !

Out of curiosity I played a couple of rounds just to pay attention to the points earned for each boss defeated. The point values are pretty bizarre so I played a second time to see if they were the same. They were. Here are the results:
1-1: 24,880
1-2: 24,880
1-3: 43,320
2-1: 82,080
2-2: 75,410
2-3: 82,080
3-1: 82,080
That's as far as I got. I still can't complete 3-2. if you add those up you get 414,730 just for the bosses alone.
I also checked the points value for various pickups like the Gun, Life, Ration and Ammo. They were all 500 points a piece as far as I could tell.
