Re: AERO FIGHTERS / SONIC WINGS 1 2 3 Special - Hi-Score Thr

I think i'm confused...left path? Meaning, just push left after the boss?

In SWSpecial, you have a path-choice, literally picking a patch, but in AF3, you must mean to push a certain direction after boss?

You know after you defeat the 1st boss and that little plane appears out of it?

Whichever wing you destroy on the plane determines your path.
Left wing is one way; right wing is another.

You got it, brother. :wink: It happens at least twice in the game that I've seen so far.

I think at the end of Stage 4 as well.

Yep, end of stage 4, and again end of stage 7.

I hit the left wing again at end of stage 4, and the stage 6 bonus was falling boulders and 2K powerups, so I think you have to go RIGHT at stage 4 end.

For stage 1, I think you have to blow up the right mountain, then the left mountain, before the boss manifests, if you do all the "M"'s will appear, and about 100K worth total.

Scoring tricks + well-played run = success.

Just so you all know -- I pointed out AF3's multiple paths and a picture of them on page 2 of the thread. Also links to the shmups.org scoring thread, where they point out the paths they take when they report their scores.

I remember reading it when you posted it...but just didn't make sense when I read it at work...and then of course I forgot about it when I needed to know it.

But, yes, you get the retroactive +1 8)
