What a pretty game. Very weird, but pretty.

Good start. The graphics were certainly ahead of their time.

Better start:

TSTR - 373,000 - Stage 1-3 (Boss) - MAME

Image

Also, it takes ENTIRELY too long for the high score table to show up in this game. I'm gonna just use 2x size screeners of the demo from now on.

And that high score entry screen is the most Japanese thing I've seen in a while.

It being a Japanese version, probably like Gradius III's with the male/female and zodiac sign entries. Remember you can always use the Fast Forward key (default is INSERT) to speed up to the entry screen.

Yeah, that's a very nice feature I gotta say. Good for some of the longer intros in games that seem to stretch out.

Derivative in every way but still manages to be fun somehow. R-Type, X-Multiply, demo screen weapons list like Life Force, and stage interstitials like Phelios.

ExedExes - 351,300 - Stage 3 - MAME

Having a hard time getting close again to my last score. Keep making it to the 1-3 boss and then eating it somewhere mid-300K. Lots of fun picking this up every few days or so, though.

DocHauser - 357,200 - Stage 3 - ShmupMAME 4.2

I reckon I should be able to make it to Stage 4, but not sure if I'll have much time to play this before the end of the month...
