1st Place on MARP: 10.265.700 by Novice

IMPORTANT: considering there are 10 days of competition, the bonus point check point will expires on July 14 (Saturday) 19.59 hours GMT


I hope I've picked up games where no one of you is very strong, so the competition will be fair.
Guzzler is not very famous, but I think is very nice and Star Force ... may be the best golden era's shooter.
Good luck !

I hope you're not referring to the in-game power-up that means you can just hold down the fire button, at least until you lose your next life?

Cheers,
BeeJay.

Aw, I was hoping for Dig Dug and Centipede (timed) :lol:

So, we're playing both games at the same time for the next 10 days, correct?

Wow! I knew marathons were all the rage these days, but two games at the same time for 10 days?!? That's taking things to the next level!

No, I'm not referring to the default autofire.

In 2006 play off we had 3 games in 2 weeks ... and the games were very well known by some of the players :?

hi chaps,
starforce is quite a samey run of the mill vertical shmup, lost their grip on me in the mid nineties. but guzzler looks fun, spitting water everywhere!
anyone got any tips about guzzler, so i have a fair chance of competition? any help would be greatly appreciated. i watched an inp, and when the central item is got (like a power pill), the dude did not eat any red baddies, while it feels like he should. why's that then?
all the best, and good luck,
paul.

No, you just have to have the "selection" rectangle around an unclaimed letter when you water some of the enemies. You have a limited amount of control of the lettering based on which direction you push the joystick, at least that's what I've managed to work out on my first few games this evening. It's not a game I've played before so it's all a learning curve on this one. At least Star Force is similar to other vertical shmups so that makes it a little easier to learn. :)

It's just so disheartening to not get enough points to even beat the 30k you need to put your initials in... that's a fairly high initial target score to beat to even get on the leader board on the game!! ;)

Cheers,
BeeJay.
