NES High Score Club Week #2 - Gun Smoke

Recommended Posts

You've voted - and I broke the tie - and we're entering the old west! Gun Smoke it is!

 

So, post a score and let's get this thing rolling!

 

Please post any tips you may have - best tip gets 1 bonus point!

 

Also, if anyone has a link to the manual, please post it.

 

A special note: Please don't post scores that were achieved after a "continue." All scores should be for a game that was started from the beginning. :) Also: please don't leech - don't loop a level endlessly to get a high score.

Tips

 

You get money for everthing you kill
stage 3 you need a smart bomb

 

mojofltr posted a link to an text version of the manual, I think.

 

I beat the game twice at that point the game can be beat three times loop each level once
Final tip in each stage except 4 and 6 there are hidden horses, and you will save points/money that way 20,000 each, don't buy wepon unless you are a newby, if you use turbo you should never die, I don't use it but that is me.

You don't actually get points from killing people (except the bosses), only from the money bags that you pick up. Any time you buy something from one of the village people, it subtracts from your score. As far as I can tell, there is no reason to buy a warrant, as there is one hidden in each of the stages. For the high score club, I'd say save your money.

 

Does anyone have a manual for this that they would scan? I'm still unsure about one or two of the items that you pick up.

This is the tricky part for me. I've actually finished Gun.Smoke before, but I seem to remember buying horses a lot, which of course is a bad idea score-wise.

I'm working on finding the bloody disc to re-install my camer's software, then maybe this week I can start posting screen shots

 

For now though my best score; 174 810.

 

 

Edit:

 

Here we go

stage 3 you need a smart bomb

 

This might be helpful, but you don't actually need it. Until checking mojo's cheat sheet I didn't even know what this was and I have finished Gun.Smoke once before.

What is it useful for? Taking out Devil Hawk more easily?

 

Also, worth noting is that the red swirly things are 1-ups and the blue swirlies are invincibility items. The cheat sheet here says you can only stock 3 lives, but that's not true. Not sure what the limit is, but it is at least 4 ;)

You should have a smart bomb, and in stage 4 must have shotgun.

 

I am playing now will upload 999,990 with no lives lost shortly

I don't think I can do much better than this. Luck was on my side more than a few times during this run.

 

Score; 220 900

123,480

 

It's funny how sometimes when you finally beat your high score, you totally smash it. :)

What's the secret? Are you looping levels or something without getting the wanted posters? In order to get to level 3 and have 999 990, I am thinking you'd likely need to loop the game twice through.

Sorry if it seems a little large or uneven, but I had to do a little cutting and pasting from Alt+PrintScreen, since I don't know how to save screenshots in FCEU.
