I'm rescinding my score submission for the arcade version, because I found out that my configuration was booting up to the lowest difficulty level. I've been playing on Normal the last couple days, and haven't reached nearly as far, so I might still throw a screenshot in here for my arcade score later this week, but the previous post about reaching the final boss was on the lowest difficulty.

Haven't done better than my St.5 score, that i posted very early this month.



Even though i totally see, why everyone loves this game, i just can't find a groove with it. I guess the multiple special weapon system, the stage select, shop feature and story sequences is just too much to handle for my simple brains.
I see that it serves the game to have a lot of variation, but it somehow kills the flow (for me).

Anyway, i love the music and the graphics!

Also played 2 or 3 creds on the arcade version and i liked that it's a bit more straight forward but i agree, that the SFC version is the better game.

GG to everyone who cleared the game or came close (and to everyone else).

Appreciate the honesty, MetalFRO.  The arcade version on normal difficulty is no joke.  I really wanted the 1CC on the arcade version, but ran out of time.  Here's my arcade score submission for the month.  252,340, got to the cave level with Greg and bit it there.

Good game to everyone who played.

If there was another month I'm confident I could've hit the 1CC. Made it to the cave on 1 cred. No pic but broke 500K points. Love the variety in this game, and really appreciate the boss battles that scroll in both directions. I'm novice enough w/shmups that I don't know how unique to the genre it is, but it's an interesting mechanic that gives those boss battles a more epic feel. The dogfighting level is also a nice stray from the norm.

With it's level selection and grinding, I still feel like it's an adventure game posing as a shmup, and that's fine by me. Capcom got so much right, the music and the environments are all fresh enough to have their own character and memorability (if that's a word), and the gameplay and controls are super intense, but fair.

I've watched some of MetalFro's streams, and for full disclosure I haven't played the arcade version, just watched. But I can't shake the feeling that Capcom took a respectable arcade IP and reimagined it in an even better form. Can't wait to see/hear comments from those who have played both.

Really have enjoyed U.N. Squadron this month, we had right on our side!
