If I skip a round, am I be eliminated?

Yes, if you are going to participate you must play each round until you are "Knocked Out" or you win the tourney.

950,600 pts.  Took a screenshot at this point because I knew the score would roll over once I leave the room to complete the level.  Friendly tip:  you'll have way more success shooting at 45-degree angles.

think I found a game where I might prefer the original controller.

My controllers are definitely borked. I was finding the best success with a Genesis pad (and of course having to do the quick swap 🙄). I got around 105k I think but then the score went away before I could take a pic. Turns out my old Zenith cuts off the score in the top left, so I'll have to play on another, hah.

I was playing on the Phoenix with my Super NTT Data Pad and then the score I posted was with retroboys NES controller. Might try my originals later, I just seem to remember them feeling more natural for diagonals.

I seem to be getting worse the more I play. The wall room gets me, the hall monsters get me, the not lining up my shots correctly gets me. One thing I am getting, is tired of this, hahaha. I think my entry might be my best, hopefully it gets me to round 2.

My trick to the wall room is if you use the top (or bottom) and stick right next to the "fixed" walls you won't be hit by the up and down moving walls and you can sneak in and out pretty easily. Not to say I still don't mess up on that room.

Yikes...I sense a first-round elimination coming on...I've never really done well at this game.


You should be safe now ;)

I was going to take the low score for the team, but Mr. Road beat me to it.
