Re: Fast Striker 1.5 - Hi-scores

3rd stage/boss was a big hurdle for me. After that I started getting to stage 5 pretty consistently.

I can't remember if the loading times were there on the MVS cart but I want to say they weren't. I was so stoked to be at southtown (RIP) that I was moving from cab to cab to make sure I got a couple credits in on everything. FS was in an MVS candy cab, it was a thing of beauty:

^Nice! I like the Neo Candies over the Reds, but I think i'm in the minority there.

At any rate, I know the Fast Striker MVS cart has come down a bit recently, was doing $450-500 for awhile, but seems to be down int he $375-400 range now and that might be worth the investment at that price. I was watching their latest endeavor last night on youtube and that looks to be even better yet, seems to have a similar scoring mechanic, but a lot more color and chaining appears to be tougher. Preorder is 399 EURO though, tough call on a game I haven't played.

^I think it's sold out on the neg.dev website, so you'll need to look on ebay (there are a few buy now copies on ebay from international sellers) or you can post a WTB in the marketplace. Expect to pay $40-55 range.

I thought NG Dev reissued the game around the same time as Gunlords release. I guess that batch must have sold out as well.

OP updated.

Nice score. My best maniac score is just short of 1bil right now. I'll have to see if I can beat that any time soon.

Maniac is pretty fun. Not just a bit more difficulty, but practically a different game, reminiscent of Dodonpachi. I'll have to give it a shot again as well.

Well not as much rust as I thought...But screwed up pathetically at the boss.

Good work.

When playing on maniac, do you have to do something special to get the 'shield up' from the little squid looking dudes? In original mode I just shoot them a few times and they drop a shield, but in maniac I seem to not be getting shields from them.

No. They don't give additional shields instantly in maniac. Instead you have to collect enough of those blue medals. While the medals were 'chains' in original mode, in maniac they serve to fill a gauge at the bottom of the screen. Fill the gauge completely to get another 'shield up'. So those guys just help with some extra medals.
