There's a 1-UP in Stage 3? Good to know. The rest of that guide...looks far too complicated for me. I'll just keep shooting things and picking up the shinies. :lol:

Ahhhh.... I *knew* it'd be Garegga for this round. Blech. Not touching that with a 1000-mile pole.

Until next time, then.

Macias - MAC - 1,763,310 - Stage 4 - Golden Bat - MAME

The pink flamingoes trick increased my score by about 500k points. Then the game must have decided I'm doing too well, because stage 3 hit me like it never did before and I barely made it to the beginning of stage 4. I can see why this game is so highly regarded, but it's not something I will return to too often, unlike Armed Police Batrider and Battle Bakraid. Definitely too hardcore with those invisible bullets and rapidly increasing rank.

I'll post something shortly. No idea what I'm doing - overly complex scoring system for my liking - and it is a tough, tough challenge beyond my mortal capabilities, but is fun in small amounts. Managed 500k so far... :| Tried this on my travels, too, in the Taito arcade in Akihabara - 1 game; put money into something else that I could play better. :lol:

Whoa, I've got some work to do.
Must read that FAQ now, I got the impression the scoring was as bunk as the "secret" bullets.

Don't think I'll be faring much better. System keeps shutting me out mid-game. I think my ma me version is a bit too old to run this game properly.

I'm starting to like the game, although if I'm ever gonna play it outside of a highscore competition it's gonna be the more manageable Type 2 revision.
