Ooh, give the black Tony Way looking guy a go, he seems really good for survivability.

I suppose it's pointless to ask, but there is no freeware version of this game that I could download legally and play directly off the .exe without the need of any further programs à la Kaikan or BWR, is there?

There's not, no. people have been begging for a home port of this since forever and it's never happened.

I can guide you through getting shmupmame up and running with your pad if you like. If this game came out tomorrow, I'd snap it up for whatever price they were asking. In the meantime, this is my only option unless I'm willing to shell out silly money for a cabinet and a fragile pcb that might explode if I look at it funny.

Yeah, I understand. I think it's one of those grey areas that make sense. Not sure I really want to go down that rabbit hole at the moment, personally. But thanks for the offer, buddy.

Have fun! :)

If you want to take a trip over to Arcade Club in Bury, that's another option!

Well this doesn't feel very good, Ksub. You would be up for playing it but the emulation is stopping you? :(

I understand and won't try to change your mind there, but wish we'd cleared this up fully before choosing this game! I don't want to see you excluded... Clippa is right unfortunately, there seems to be no way to play this other than MAME or similar.

(in other news I just tried Batrider, it looks great fun)

I think owly's busy with some real life shiz at the minute and feels a bit shmupped out regardless, he was probably just gonna have a few shots to see what all the fuss was about.
I understand the no emulation stance, he needs something else to keep him feeling morally superior now that I'm on the wagon :lol:

Real life always comes first :thumbsup:

Our love to the :owl: regardless of the current shmup engagement.

Also good work on the wagon clipps. Not an easy task but sounds like you're doing well.

I mentioned it in the other thread! I said you guys should take the opportunity to have fun without me, so it's all good. Just sitting this one out. I'm sure we'll find another game for us to all play together at some point again. :)

See, now that the dry season has finally arrived on Planet Weirdo it's clipps processing all the information accurately and staying on top of the situation like an absolute boss. End of an era! What a twist! :lol:

:lol: genuine big laugh. You have a way with words.
You can pick the next one since you're gonna be missing out, that's fair, you've got a whole month to decide.

Oh god. Yeah, you did. Apologies, my brain isn't working very well today. I literally handed my wife an empty glass earlier when she asked for some water. Consider yourself lucky I just forgot one of your posts when trying to be nice and consider you! I'm only just over a hangover from last night (a rare night out) and have been in the dog house today. I should probably stop trying to communicate with people for a bit. Or drink a beer. Or sleep

Had twenty minutes with this and did best with the second ship, the orange helmet girl. 1.58m. Seems like a really fun game. It's got that Garegga thing of bullets being a bit hard to read but it's a bit more fantastical so the colours pop quite a bit more. I see it's got that Psikyo randomised stages thing. Some great bosses, really tough. Enjoying it though. It seems really straightforward so far. Keep grabbing the medals as they get bigger. Miss one and reset the multiplier. Easy enough to understand.

2.17m using Strawman Type C.

If you select character with different buttons, it gives different shot types! Type C is strong shot and option but slower ship.

Ooh, that's clever. I'll have to try that. You could pick one of the faster characters and then being slower wouldn't be an issue.
It's ridiculous all the different ship and then those different styles on top of that. I've never seen anything like it!

Yeah, it's fun, the medal collecting is a very simple system for racking up points. There's obviously loads to it in terms of destructible environment and stuff for bonus points here and there but largely, by keeping the medals going, using bombs to get out of trouble and blowing stuff up, your score goes up meaningfully. That Boredom boss on the Sky High level is a total bastard, by the way.

Yeah, I've got my strategy down but I die there a lot! I never seem to get the extra boss on that bit with the strawman guy so I think I'll stick to him for now because that's a pain in the arse as well.

I like that my score of 2.1m is at stage 4 and your 2.8m is stage 5. Nice linearity to the scoring here at our level.
