This is another game that doesn't get any harder on subsequent loops so one loop is fine.

Legendary Wings -- 497,300

 

I seem to remember this game being easier, me being better at it, or both.   I think I can beat it, though, or come up with some good excuses for why I can't.

And I want to thank asponge for making this one loop. That was more than enough Legendary Wings.

Shinobi - 583,300  

 

I thought this was my last life so paused the emulator here and took a pic. I game over'd on my next life anyway. Could not beat final boss.

Just a warning, guys. Shinobi does not show your score after you game over or during the second boss fight. Not a great port.

That’s annoying. What’s the point of points if they just go away? In situations like this, they really are a holdover from the arcade. Grew up with the master system version, which I love. That shows the score on the title screen and demo, the way nature intended.

NES Qbert does the same thing. Spoils an otherwise good port.

 

One of the most baffling examples of this is Columns for Sega Master System. Score disappears on game over. If there's any genre where high score matters, it's Tetris style puzzlers.

This is interesting. Looks like a run of the mill shmup at first, but then the sidescrolling parts surprised me

Hard game and a bit frustrating when you get hit, lose your power up, and find you have to dodge certain enemies bc your peashooter does squat. Also, I like that the sound when entering that giant head is the ghost sound from duck tales awoohoo.

Made it to what I think is the first boss...

Was it the dragon? If so then you had a ways to go before the actual first boss.

Saw this in Legendary Wings while failing to beat the game again (so close, though) -- I'm not fluid in fictional-world hieroglyphics, so speculation time.  Whatcha think this says?

 

 

Their version of a billboard telling me to come on down to Joe's Used Auto?

 

Steve was here?

 

For a good time, call....?

Yeah the dragon is just the mid boss. After that, there's one last horizontal shooter section before you face the final boss of the level.

 

There's only 5 levels so they're pretty long.

Legendary Wings -- 1,012,900

 

Made it!

 

I finished the game twice (my other score was a bit lower)  I like the game a lot, but not sure how I can squeeze out any more points in a single run.   Time to have a look at the list and see what's next.  😁

Donkey Kong Jr -- 131,900

 

Figured it was decent enough to get the ball rolling without embarrassing myself too much.

Think I might be over Legendary Wings, so good thing we have so many other games to play! Haha. Got a new high in Popeye, but still behind the awesome score from @mbd39. What I like about the ship level is punching that vulture for a cool 1K. What I don’t like is everything else. Getting Bluto after the spinach is hit or miss, literally, since he can jump over platform gaps and you can’t. Then there’s the letters that shoot to the bottom, where you do not want to be. But the worst is that the ladder does nothing, and you would expect to be able to climb it as you build it higher, especially considering you can climb the ladder in the first screen. Still, love the game, despite those issues. 

 

Popeye - 82,100 R7
