A ton of house guests this weekend has left me frail and feeble, but I shall persevere and put up a score soon.

The Steam version has such different menu screens than what I'm seeing here. It feels like I'm playing a different game.

Anyway, here's my first score.

My arcade initials are always III. The result of being the 3rd male legacy in my family...

Had a look at the score chat. I'm not last! I'm not as bad at run and guns as I thought.

That reminds me, I've had another high score pic sitting around that I need to post:



I'm determined to have the highest score for one of these games, and I highly doubt it's going to be either Contra or Rolling Thunder 2, so that means it has to be Missile Sludge 3.

In case any of you didn't catch the "Missile Sludge" reference. I posted something similar on Twitter, "My daughter said she was tired of me playing Missile Sludge 3..."

And, why are you not following me on Twitter?.....

I snuck in a round today before heading to a family Christmas Eve dinner:

Man, it took me a while to get through that alien battle. Once I learned how to manipulate the zombie status, it got easier to get to the end with more lives. For those who don't know, while you are a zombie, bullets do not affect you. You are slower and can't crouch, but all you have to worry about are other zombies.

I have found that if I don't find a rhythm on the Mission 1 boss, I have a hard time through my whole 5 credits.  You can really score big in the first mission if you can free all the soldiers during the boss and not die - with each one worth 10K, and at least 2 of them offering a 50K bonus item to collect, you can hit that 200K mark by the end of the boss fight.  I have a lot of trouble with the alien boss at the end of Mission 2.  Not the big egg thing, that's easy enough, but the aliens that circle around and shoot big glowing green energy balls at you.  I almost always get hit by one of them when they shoot them fast.  I end up burning at least a credit, if not 2, during that boss fight.  It's very frustrating.

The Energy balls come out in waves of threes. Dodge the first three, then run across the screen before the next three start. As for the Aliens, spam the hell out of your grenades and they go down quick.

Which path are you taking on the 1st stage FRO?

I got that part - it's when they start firing quickly that I run into trouble.  Playing a little last night, I'm starting to get the hang of it.  When they start shooting in sets of 5 rapidly, and that's usually 5 or 6 sets, that's when it really gets hairy.  I usually don't have many grenades when I get to the aliens, so maybe I need to start conserving them a bit more...

I take the upper path on Stage 1, down the elevator thing and into the warehouse with the giant crabs, then to the boss after that.

I've realised if you can do Mission 1 without losing a life then you can get over 500000. Can't do Mission 2 at the end without losing a life yet but I managesd to get a score over 700000 and I messed up trying to save a pic of the score. I can't do it it again to prove it it  Smiley

My fault but I realise that if I can do the first two missions without losing a life then I can get a score to compete. Loving the competition, cheers guys. Merry Christmas to you all.  Cool
