Title: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: WandererFromYs on February 27, 2008, 04:22:41 PM
I'm playing Neutopia I.  I'm in the underworld, i've never gotten farther than here i think it was because i wrote down the wrong password as a child. Now i have save's so its time to put this game to sleep.

I started playing Dead Moon, it's better then I thought.  The action is fast, enemies cames at you pretty fast and the backgound moves by faster too.  I think I might pick up the original copy for it.  I'm trying out new games I never played before on the pc-engine flash card I just received.

I've been playing my newly acquired R-Type finalfor PS2, working my way up to the ship from image Fight! Does that count?

If not, the Turbo Games I go back and forth between are Image Fight 1 and 2, though I just got a Japanese Ys III today from Nectarsis...

Dragon's Curse is OK - still not my favorite.  Surprised at how much I enjoyed my first stabs at Tail Spin and Night Creatures.  Actually Bravoman isn't as bad as it looks on youtube.  I'm on the fence about that one.

You're putting a lot more time into that one than I ever cared to.  That game is tough as hell- even with two players.  Tried to like this game beyond the jiggly show cutscenes and couldn't do it.  Not only is it extremely tough from jumpstreet- but the speed feels a little too slippery, the enemies too tough, and the graphics too spotty (what's up with those clouds looking like boulders?).  Maybe I'll give it another shot- since you and others seem to dig it.

I recently (finally) got Parodius and am blown away by it. I thought that it would be a modest game overall but its very impressive in every way and is yet another game that pulls off most of the visual tricks that are supposed to be impossible on Turbo/PCE.

Parodius rules definitely.

Currently making my way through Dragon Slayer Legend of Heroes and I love it.
Looking like a long game- I'm on Chapter 3.

If there is a shooter out there that is easier in two player mode than solo I'd like to see it. Usually the other player just takes away from the power ups and continues that are needed to make actual progress.

I really don't find this game to be particularly hard. All shooters are hard, and the older the harder, usually. I'm certain that there are many shooters from the Famicom era that have been cleared by less than %0.01 of the people that own them.

I did beat Vanguard though...

Forgotten Worlds on Genesis since you get infinite continues on two player mode. I also found Dragon Saber on PCE to be easier with two players.

I'm currently playing Legend of Xanadu. I guess technically it's part of the Dragon Slayer series, part 8 or something. It's a J-RPG, but one of the best RPGs I've played on the system. But be forewarned-- it's challenging. But who doesn't like a challenge? Only little girls, that's who. Highly recommended to everyone/anyone into RPGs. But don't take my word for it-- here's a YouTube clip to convince you.

Wow, that game has a lot of cool "impossible on PC Engine" layered background effects.

I played part way through the first chapter way back when until I got stuck in the middle of fetch quests and gave up. I really need to get around to trying it again. :)
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: nat on March 11, 2008, 01:13:14 PM
By first "chapter" do you mean the first game or first AREA in the first game?

Anyway, yeah, I really recommend it especially to someone like you who digs the J-RPGs. Once you get used to the fetch quests they're not that bad and it's fun solving them. There's a FAQ if you get stuck but so far I've only had to use it twice and I'm about halfway through the game. One of those times it was something stupid I probably would've figured out eventually but I had already spent like an hour on it and wasn't getting anywhere. The sidescrolling stages come at the end of every "Area" and are kind of like a pay-off for all your hard work on the fetch quest puzzles. There are 12 Areas in all, I'm on Area 6 currently. Great game, I hope this one gets translated one day so I can replay it and fully appreciate the parts of the story I'm missing out on.

Hell yeah! And, supposedly, it was the first 8 meg HuCard. The key thing, though, is not the 8 meg, but the sheer amount of love that Konami packed into that game. It just kicks ass, especially the special characters  :).

I found Parodius to be overrated when I finally got it. Salamander is much, much better.

Give me Air Zonk, Coryoon, Star Parodia, etc any day over Parodius. Parodius ain't bad, but it's far from the best shooter on the system.

Oh yeah for sure.  It's alright for the time it came out, but I agree Salamander is where it's at and my recent acquisition of Gradius II is also extremely fun.

I am playing a little emulated Neutopia II. Played N1 last year, and I remember beating a physical copy of Neutopia II way back in time. I guess it's mostly because my wife has been playing Zelda:LttP on the TV and I've been inspired.

 Oh man, Valis II was great. I'd recommend Valis III just because. Not as easy though and the sound track isn't as great as Valis II(no other Valis game is!).

Last night I busted up Tiger Road and started playing Ys IV english patch for the first time (beat Tiger Road to make room for Ys IV memory).  Y's IV is fantastic- so much more detail in the towns and landscapes and mines. Maybe a little too much story in the beginning and not enough action- but GREAT nonetheless.
Don't know why I never beat Tiger Road BITD (or maybe I did but didn't remember- game's not too memorable so this could be the case).  I used continues- but mostly from feeling my way- wasn't stuck on anything for long- and is it just me or do the boards seem to get easier as they go on?

Valis III is the best game in the series and utterly annihilates II.  Like Mal said, its music isn't quite as awesome as II's, but then, very few games have music as awesome as II's. 

Last night I busted up Tiger Road ... is it just me or do the boards seem to get easier as they go on?

I know what you mean.  Whenever I sit down with Tiger Road, I struggle a bit at first, and then I start to cruise along.  I'm sure that part of it is simply getting acclimated to the poor collision detection again, but there are a couple places early on, where enemies either knock you into pits or situate themselves in inconvenient spots, that can really be nuisances to get by, while many of the later sections can be dashed right through.

Parodius is awesome!! Its not arcade perfect but I swear at least it pushes the pc engine more than any other HUcard game!

Salamander is awesome too.. although it took a few years before I actually began to appreciate it!  one of those very hard games that makes your blood boild and rewards ya the more you get further along..

Anyway been playing Rabio Lepus and Shanghai today ..  Rabio is just too frustrating but Shanghai just really calms ya down.

I enjoy Tiger Road.  It doesn't have a lot of bells & whistles but it's solid.  Great music / graphics too.

Playing Aeroblasters last night..  Jesus christ that game is hard.  I FINALLY figured out that I want to grab the missle and then those Ps and ignore the other power ups (a lot of those weapons suck!) but still - can't remember a time I reset a game so often to start over!

I love hate the later "speed maze" levels in AeroBlasters. Getting those "sleds" (powerup) is brilliant, but I've been able to pass the mazes without them (I only do this when I'm feeling particularly full-of-myself).

I love Aeroblasters, though. It provides a nice challenge. You feel like you accomplished something.

Yeah, Aero Blasters is very good.  It can be challenging, but it's fair (yes, even the parts with the gravity effects).  The only part that I call BS on is the "wobbly screen" stretch in the last stage.  I lose at least three lives every single time.

The part that always used to get me was a mini-boss in Stage 5 who shoots lots of tight spread shots while the gravity effects are f*cking around with your ship.  I eventually got the feel for it, but it seemed almost impossible at first.

I played Keith Courage for the first time ever today!  It's not so bad, guys... Really.  I got it from The Old Rover, along with Blazing Lazers, Parasol Stars, and Air Zonk.  Granted they just came today, but I've spent more time playing Keith Courage than the rest of them combined. :D

P.S.: I just have a Duo, so I never experienced KC as a pack-in, which is why this is the first time I've played it.

True, I can't see the game lasting long.  I've gotten though about half of it without really even trying, and I'm not sure how many times I'll want to play it.  But still, I've seen lots of people trash on the game, so I wanted to give it some praise!

I think it's generally regarded that it's actually an OK game. But you're right, the replay value is zilch. And there is nothing mascot-ish about Keith Courage. And the name "Keith Courage in Alpha Zones" really, really blows. And they made 2.3 billion copies whereas other, better games were limited to runs of a mere 3,000 units.

I think these are the things that generate the bad buzz around Keith Courage. As a game, by itself, there's nothing wrong with it. And it actually makes really good use of the system's color capabilities.

Okay, I've moved on to Blazing Lazers now.  Is this game generally considered easy, or am I just strangely good at it?  I'm generally pretty mediocre at shooters, but I blazed through (pun intended) to the fifth area without any trouble before my short attention span kicked in.  For reference, Gate of Thunder and Lords of Thunder give me a good run for my money.

Beautiful game, though, and I'm certainly enjoying it.  I'm just kinda surprised that a shooter isn't immediately kicking my ass.

I like shooters like Blazing Lazers, which let you make it a few levels in before wiping the floor with you, much more than the newer shooters which wipe the floor with you from stage 1.

Keith Courage rocks hardcore, and I will absolutely never sell my copy which has the comic book with it. Replay value? Tons for me...I replay the hell out of it...every once in awhile I feel like playing it through again, despite knowing it like the back of my hand. I can even sometimes beat the Titan without taking a single hit...how many people can do that? I should youtube it someday...someone send me a video camera! :D I still await the next Keith Courage adventure... (GRANZORT IS NOT THE SEQUEL!!!!!!)

Blazing Lazers does seem pretty easy at first. I played it seriously for the first time a few weeks ago...got up to some bubble level and that's as far as I got but up to that, it was a total cakewalk. The weapons system is so varied, and almost every weapon you get is super-powerful.

-in the F1 mode?
-In quest mode?

Because, I admit, in quest mode, beating that pretty boy Alan Pross is damn near impossible...one little slip up anywhere in the race and you can kiss the trophy goodbye! I've done it, though...and you can too! Just make sure you got all the enhancements, including the one where your car is super light.

I'm on the last race too, and I almost beat him last time I played. I slipped up right at the end and went off track on a corner for like a split second, but that was all it took. I spent the whole race in front of that douche, too.

I haven't tried again because it takes me 30 minutes just to enter the 164-digit password, and lots of times I only have 30 minutes to play.

Also i keep going back to Bomberman'93 as im on planet Surf E-6, im get'n there.
quickie question related here...im saving as i go with the booster plus, how long will the booster go holding your data without power it up?
For a long time us non-techies thought it was a battery-back up in the TG-CD (and BackupBooster), but I think someone informed us that it is simply a capacitor (that retain an electrical charge) and that the ones used can last about, hmmmm, 2-3 weeks?

Other folks, please correct me.

oh yeah I am talking about Alan Pross of course.    I think I have the second best motor but the best in everything else (maxed out to 99).  I am a firm believer in not having a higher motor score than your tires because it's too hard to control.  I'm scared to go even and be screwed -  that said I'm not beating AP anytime soon so maybe I should just find the Mega Motor.  It wasn't in Mike's warehouse, was it?

Anyway I love this game.  I knew it was cool but didn't expect it to be so much fun.  After you learn how to race it can feel exhilarating - don't let the drab color pallet on the racing screen fool you.

and nat I keep my passwords written in this little tablet of graph paper I have.   Waiters use them I guess.  I started using it on OotG. It's perfect.

I recognize that Nat has gone with JVC for his television! Seriously...I was in love with JVC back when VCR's were still popular, and their TV's are good, but every other product of theirs I've tried has been a disappointment.

I think I have the exact same TV in Nat's picture, though.
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: nat on March 19, 2008, 10:12:19 AM
As some of you may have noticed I talk up that TV every f*cking chance I get. It has one of the best pictures, even in composite, for vintage gaming I've ever seen. Maybe even the best but that's a hard claim to make.

Like you, I'm not a big fan of JVC's other products. But that TV is teh pwn. The first time I saw a classic console being played on it I was floored. First chance I got it was installed in my gaming room as my primary gaming TV.

People are always talking about their Sonys, etc. You go ahead and take that Sony; I'll stick with my JVC thank you very much.

Here's a page with specs on that TV, or at least one that is extremely similar (I don't remember what model # my set is, and it's 150 lbs too heavy for me to pull out and look) with the same dimensions and features:

http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:JVC%20AV-32F577%20Television:1993985197:page=details (http://shopping.yahoo.com/p:JVC AV-32F577 Television:1993985197:page=details)

I should mention I have another JVC, in my bedroom, it's a 27" and it's from 1991. The quality is nowhere near the quality of this thing. But then again the 27" is getting a little long in the tooth these days.

I have a JVC 27" tube TV I bought a few years ago and it's been well-behaved. I rather like it. I even play a little PCE on it periodically. Parasol Stars has been my fix as of late. Once I'm done with that I'll probably go back to trying to beat Bomberman 94. It's not so much that the game is hard as it is I have a limited attention span.

Good luck finding one locally.  Since they haven't made these (or any quality CRTs) for quite a while, you'll be hard pressed to find one sitting in the store.  You'll probably have to find one used, settle for a lower quality set, or pay the big bucks to a online retailer for some new old stock.

Yeah I got my set a few years back. Two? Three, maybe? They may have even been phasing them out at that point, who knows? But it's a damn great TV if you can find it.

Well, if you don't want to cheat and use the "RICH" code...
I always start by buying "Handle B+2" and a Gas Tank. At this point in the game you should be evenly matched with the other cars. You should do well enough to come in first or second, and then I buy "Body+4", and maybe some better (but not the best just yet) tires.
After winning another big prize, you can go ahead and buy "Engine+4" (you may be tempted to buy the engine before the body, but if you do you'll guzzle gas like there's no tomorrow).

More later!

Good advice, but I find this works well for me:

Before you start the first race, buy the most expensive "Handle." With what money you have left buy the most expensive body you can afford. I find you don't need the gas tank until you buy a bigger engine. Race.

With those mods you should win the first round no problem and get like $10,000+.

With that money, for the next round buy the most expensive engine you can afford and a gas tank. Again, you should have no trouble winning.

From there it should be smooth sailing, upgrade when you can as you win.

Thanks Nat!

Just to finish up what I was saying earlier (I'm at work and my boss wanted to give me my review...Good new$!!):

After buying the best engine, buy "H.G. Tire+2"
Next race, buy "Dual A.V.D" brakes.

By heat 6, you will be able to afford Turbo for $10,000 (but it takes you FOREVER to accelerate), OR,
you can wait until heat 7, where you'll have more than enough to afford the $22,000 "Hi-Turbo".

After all your hard work, have fun annihilating the competition for the last two races. You've earned it!

Is there a PCE thread version of this one?
Anywho played some Liquid Kids and Kiki Kaikai last night...

Liquid Kids rules as always.  Some say Don Doko Don is more of a true sequel to Parasol Stars- but this one in reality feels much much closer- same style graphics, same style backgrounds, some familiar enemies and there's actually BUBBLES.  A one player platform game using the elements of Bubble Bobble if you will.  A must have for Bubble Bobble fans.  Great game. 

Kiki Kaikai perhaps I judged unfairly at first.  I rather enjoyed it last night- Just have to think of it more as a multi directional shooter than as an overhead action platformer- not much difference between the two but still...  I'm also always disappointed when a game is ported and loses its two-player option in the transition- but again it can be fun and the controls are quite smooth.
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?

Liquid Kids was supposed to have been released on the TurboGrafx in the US at one point, and was supposed to have actually been called "Bubble Bobble IV."

Word, I'm glad to hear you're starting to dig that game, Sini.  I enjoyed it quite a bit myself.  Some tough bosses and tricky levels in there. 

As for me, after the surprise that was Burai, I moved right along to Burai II.  Good times so far.

My new vice as of two days ago.
(http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s253/youtubebgs/pcemetalstoker.jpg)

Who thinks this Granada-esque shooter kicks ass? Insane challenging gameplay, and whoever made the music for this game got some serious talent, especially stage 3 BGM. I sat on that stage for a half hour in a spot with no sound fx interference listening to it repeatedly.

I was so hooked on this I beat it twice in a row the same day I got it.

Was Grandmother Crabapple when I first put it on-
disappointed that I couldn't find an alternating two player mode- upset that the level music didn't change much- and was busy comparing the graphics to Parasol Stars which are better and is a hucard. 
Then I settled into it and the next thing I knew I was addicted. However what's the deal with the hyper items and if you get one and clear an island- does the hyper item stay with you along with the levels completed on memory?  Anyway this game is fantastic.

Love seeing arcade modes getting love!

Just tested out Power League III (has 4 player mode- can't wait to get three heads in here for that one)
Racing Spirits (a letdown for an Irem card- though I'll only really know from two-player)
Space Invaders (plus mode is awesome!)

and just beat Power Gate- which I really enjoyed.  A nice game to cruise through when powered up-
didn't realize that I amassed so many secondary weapons and used them continuously to crush the final (sixth) board-
interestingly levels 4 & 5 have no bosses- the regular boards just get tough while the boss music plays-
Final boss was a giant flying weapon with huge missiles and was probably the easiest boss in the game...
Overall a surprise- liked it much more than I thought I would- graphics are cruddy yet somehow charming-
was surprised to see parallex- heard such bad things about pack-in-video games...
and all the missile and bullet dodging is great.  Your bombs get really nasty when powered up to fire bombs...
Thumbs up.

just put some more time into lost sunheart- fantastic game.  Some of the enemies I find too manic- but if you have a protective ring and keep switching your speeds it makes up for it.  got as far now as inside the whale on normal mode.

also just played some cloud master- at first I was wondering why I didn't care for it- some of the background work is lovely and detailed, awesome scrolling on the boss fights, and its one of the most colorful pce cards period- but damn its a little frustrating how easy of a target you become especially when you die and no longer have a speed power-up.  It's also not as fun as it looks and that drive to get further is somehow missing.  I will give it some more chances though.

gave burning angels another chance today.  some boards look so shitty- second stage in particular with the ugly boulderish clouds- third stage looks amazing in comparison.   really is a brutal game- not in a good way.  you know how some bosses in overhead shooters you can't face directly head on because a huge front laser will suddenly nail you?  Now picture that for most regular enemies in this game only the shots are ludicrously fast and much faster than your ship.  Then when you're on the side of an oncoming big ship expecting a shot from the front it'll shoot from the sides- again- ludicrously fast.  This is not a wriggle game- you have to really memorize every shooting pattern and its not fun at all to do so in this case.  and you get one life.  the music is kind of trash imo.  I'd say that whoever designed this game had no clue on how to make a playable shooter- that said however Naxat has some really good ones. 

also cleared final soldier today- always found it to be the easiest of the star soldier games but I haven't cleared it until today- the final stage (bright as hell purple lava where it's hard to make out what's going on) really messes with my eyes so I held off on following through.  Just kind of eased my eyes toward the bottom of the screen this time and it was better- though my eyes still felt shot for 15 minutes after I shut the system down.  some think (nat!) that I hate this game- but I always felt it was great- regardless of me making fun of the fire shots that look like cheetos.  I do feel though that some of the music is greatly inappropriate and way too happy sounding- and I also feel that though its cool that you can select different weapons on the set-up screen- that most of those weapons are garbage or recycled from super star soldier.  one thing I really do like about the game- aside from the great playability- is the 50's/60's sci-fi feel of some of the levels- something that gives it a completely different feel to me in comparison with the other games in the series.  I rank it third behind Blazing Lazers with Soldier Blade my definite favorite and super star soldier the definite bottom rung. 

played a little dead moon too but was forced to shut it off halfway through  :|.

I've had Lost Sunheart for years, but never really played the first few levels (I remember one of them being really hard). It seems pretty cool, but it's got some harsh sound to it if I recall and the graphics were kind of a mixed bag. Maybe I'll remind myself to play that again once I'm done with other games on my plate.

Just beat Final Soldier a few hours ago, by the way. Great game!
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: nat on April 04, 2008, 08:29:32 PM
The final level in Final Soldier ranks among the best of all the levels that make up the Gunhed/Star Soldier series. The background f*cks with your attention while the onslaught of enemies is ceaseless. The issue is compounded by a fairly difficult boss to dispatch. Fantastic end to a great game.... One of the reasons I like Final Soldier so much is that it pays homage to Gunhed in so many ways. The bio-mechanical enemies, smartbombs, and one level (5 or 6, can't recall) is like a re-visit of the green space platforms from the first game.

The sound in The Lost Sunheart is definitely harsh, but it's very PCE/Turbo and not the same kind of harsh as some other games on the platform which are bad-NES-sounding harsh. Like coffee, it's an acquired taste and easy to get hooked. Right out the gate, the game doesn't pull any punches which makes it a bit more difficult straight off than many other shooters.

It's hard not to take hits in that game but the life bar and defense power-ups help- also the full life power-ups are spread out at nice spots so just keep in your head to stay alive juuust a little longer and you'll replenish.

For folks who like Lost Sunheart, I usually recommend Rabio Lepus. Rabio doesn't get much love, but for me, both games appeal to the same sort of person. OK, this isn't a scientific theory, but I've seen a correlation between folks liking both games (or disliking both!).

Sinistron, if you liked PowerGate, check out F-123. I can't remember, but I think someone wrote about it here. I had a review here or at magicengine, too (with screenshots of the goofball nicknames they gave the fighter pilots). F-123 is challenging and it was strangely satisfying to beat it. Now, most folks will not play F-123 for long, but it can provide some fun.

If you haven't checked out Download (HuCard) and Download 2 (CD), you might find them kinda enjoyable as well.

yeah I kind of do like rabio lepus- haven't plugged that one in in a minute but at a time I was giving it a fair amount of playtime and was doing fairly well at it- probably nowhere near beating it (tough ass game!) but fairly well all the same.  Good call though I think I'll show that one a little love today.

I had a review here or at magicengine, too (with screenshots of the goofball nicknames they gave the fighter pilots). F-123 is challenging and it was strangely satisfying to beat it. Now, most folks will not play F-123 for long, but it can provide some fun.

If you haven't checked out Download (HuCard) and Download 2 (CD), you might find them kinda enjoyable as well.

Yeah I think you mean Runin's review- he's told me as well to pick it up- sounds like the games are almost board for board similar- with Hawk having much better graphics of course.  I'm definitely picking it up soon- Powergate was fun as hell.  Download 1 & 2 I unfortunately don't have yet  :cry: but that will change! Download's on my top ten most wanted hucard list  :)  just got in the mail today the card I've been waiting the longest for- Hero Tonma- was a b1tch finding it at a price I was comfortable with...

played a little dead moon too but was forced to shut it off halfway through  :|.

Awesome (the playing, not having to shut down halfway).  Sounded so good I decided to play myself, 'til I died and didn't use a continue.

Played some 1943 and finished it on two player with my bro-in-law.  Fun stuff; hurry, pick up that cow!

Yes! Armed F is tough as balls. I actually beat that motherf*cker, and used to have notes (I was going to write a FAQ). There are patterns to the bosses and some of the later ones are frustrating.

I like Armed F, despite its flaws and non-slick, non-Hollywood presentation.

Well i've played the arcade version on,Namco Museum vol 5 for the PS1.

It's not that big of a deal far as what there saying though so dunno.

Later on i'll have to dig out my copy and see what it was.

The pc engine version of Valkyrie no Densetsu is different from the arcade especially later on as the levels are much different and from what I've read there is a boss not found on the arcade.  Not to mention the dreaded password system to continue at another day.

Also you will get to a point where you have to answer a random question correctly otherwise you get thrown back to the beginning of the level.. or mana/health points deducted.  Plus you might need to answer a question correctly in order to gain mana/health.. so thats a lil tricky but it just means a bit more of a challenge XD

I got the completed game up on youtube but some bits are missing.. as I'm sure you can obtain a special sword to defeat the final 2 bosses.. they took a LOOOOOONG time to kill with my "normal" upgraded sword (which was why I split it into 4 vids)..

Played Valis II for the first time today.  What a disappointment. I find it hard to believe that some people think Valis I is weaker than this game.  Valis I is at leat 3 x the game this is.  II is ridiculously easy, insanely short- and a poor platformer with poor level structure and practically zero game strategy.  Gameplay is below average.  This left a bad taste in my mouth and after clearing it it felt like a waste of my time.  The music is highly overrated.  Cutscenes- though they have nice images- are tiny with little animation.  Plenty of load time on this one too.  Future Boy Conan is better than this.

So true. Didn't I warn you about that? I have no idea why the soundtrack on Valis II gets hyped so much. When I played it for the first time, I found the tunes to be merely OK, and at their very best moments, simply "good."

Wouldn't come close to making a top 10 best-soundtrack-on-Turbo list, and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it didn't even touch a top 25 list.

Valis II's soundtrack isn't bad or anything, but the soundtrack in Valis III overall is much better, and more consistently "good" than that of II.

I find Valis II's audio composition especially disappointing considering Valis is a Telenet game, and Telenet games consistently feature some of the best music on the console.

Valis III's music is pretty darn generic compared to the brilliant, creative tunes in Valis II.  :twisted:

Since both you (nat) and Sinistron have uttered such blasphemous irreverence towards the sacred tunes of Valis II, let me explain.

(1) Really it is just a matter of musical preference.  :)  I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on Double Dragon II (http://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/index.php?topic=2961.0). And if you have Lady Phantom (http://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/index.php?topic=2047.msg34562#msg34562) (two decent tracks).
(2) I think most video game music (from SNES onwards) falls into the genre of muzak, but I try to appreciate it for what it is.
(3) Valis II, in many ways, transcends muzak. Or, at worst, it is really good muzak. Lots of creative stuff going on.
(4) Electronic / synth-pop / 80's / new romantics = some of my favorite genres
(5) Valis II 's music kicks your lame ass!
(6) See #5

:)

really good muzak is really really lame  :P

Just an opinion of course.  I'm actually not a total music snob like I'm coming off- I like a bit of everything- folk, alternative hip-hop and classic rock included- and that said I merely implied that Valis II's music was overrated- it isn't a complete waste- I just think that the high reverence held to it is more than drastic.  As Nat said- it'd be lucky to make a realistic top 25 list of best PCECD music- and I'd place it lower than that.  Pretty much all of Hudson's CD games have much better music for example- and nothing from Valis II stuck in my head.  My initial concerns however were on Valis II's poor gameplay, structure, and lack of strategy, difficulty and length.  This makes the music even worse than it already is as a good video game should be one great experience as a whole- with each element- whether it be music, sfx, graphics or gameplay among others- harmonizing into an almost religious synthesis.  Perhaps if I listened to Valis II's music on it's own merits I'd appreciate it more- but as I already said nothing jumped out at me.

I've played through I through III recently, and I'm in the last level for part IV.  I was never a big fan of the series before, but playing through them again makes me appreciate it a bit more this time.

As for the music for part II, I gotta agree with Sinistron & Nat.  Valis II's soundtrack is decent, but I can't ever recall going "wow" at the music.  And the gameplay is by far, far the crappiest of the series.  I'd think the only thing that really sold Part II to a large crowd is the whole "anime girls with skimpy outfits" thing.

Talking about Valis, part III gets a lot of love, but IV is quite solid.  For a "regular" CD-ROM2 game, it's probably one of the most polished looking titles I've come across.  It looks helluva lot better than a majority of the SCD titles out there, with good use of colors & parallex, and even the cut-scenes are tons better than part II.  (they must've come up with better compression algorithms by then, cause the images are a lot bigger & varied during cinemas than previous CD-entries, but the loading isn't so bad)

Dude, I posted mp3's in that Double Dragon II thread, just right-click and download them. Give 'em a listen! :)

Anyway, I am arguing that Valis II transcends muzak, and that is why I love it so much. Sorry if I wasn't clear on that.

If comes down to personal preference, of course, but Valis II's soundtrack really stands out from other CD games across all consoles: I have been searching for more games, any games, that offer something even remotely similar to Valis II. Unfortunately, I've yet to find any, and believe me, I've been looking...

Perhaps you have to like synth-pop and eccentric stuff to appreciate Valis II? :)

As for math rock, I dig that as well, though I had to look at lists of "math rock" bands just now to see if I recognized anything. As far as I can tell, I am only familiar with older stuff (early 90's) since I was buying up all of these records like a fiend.

If you dig Drive Like Jehu's first album (Yank Crime isn't as good) and if you have perused Touch and Go's catalog (math rockers and beyond), then we're probably not the mortal enemies I thought we were :).

I'm actually more of a music fiend than a video game fiend, which maybe explains why I spend too much time defending the handful of excellent tunes from Dragon Spirit....

Dragon Spirit has great chip music and it really fits the laid back feel of the game- one of the reasons why I like it more than Dragon Saber.  :D

Last night I beat Dynastic Hero.  Loved it.  It felt shorter and much easier than Dragon's Curse- its predecessor and obvious model- but I felt it being a CD game was still justified- with the excellent music and colorful, bubbly graphics.  So far- without having beat the last boss in Bikkuriman and without having beat Monster Lair (but playing and owning both of them)- I'd rank the TG/PCE Wonder Boy adaptations as such- Dragon's Curse, New Adventure Island, Dynastic Hero, Bikkuriman World, and Monster Lair.  I love Monster Lair- so that being ranked last should tell you how I feel about this series.

I beat Last Alert last night too for the first time since I beat it back in the day when I first owned it.  A fun game- but not much in the way of strategy and challenge.  To clear this game with one life shouldn't be much of a task and all of the bosses (the "hardest" one being the sewer monster only because you can't waste your time as on that particular board you're given very little) are jokey- especially the final boss and that weapon he was building.  I'd say that this is more fun and campy than Bloody Wolf but definitely less of a challenge.

On a side note- and maybe someone can help me here- I tried to start up Exile II last night a few times but with no luck.  Problem was it kept telling me that there wasn't enough CD player memory for me to create a save file.  This puzzled me as I only had like six files at the moment.  So I erased all but two of them - erased my 100% Drac X clear and my Rainbow Islands file- neither which bothered me as it'd just give me an excuse to beat up Drac X again and for me to start from scratch again on the excellent Rainbow Islands - erased my Y's IV file which is okay because I wasn't far into it- but I also erased my girlfriend's Loom file which wasn't cool.  So I was left with two files- my clear of Lady Sword (so that I can access the nudie pics whenever I want  :P and my progress in Shape Shifter.  Guess what?  Exile II still said I didn't have enough memory.   :?: :?: :?:  What am I doing wrong here?  I even turned everything off, unplugged the unit- took a 1/2 hour walk outside, came back and got the same result.  Can someone help me here?  And yes- I KNOW that I need a tennokoe card- but aside from that- I don't get it.  I used to be able to have numerous files on the CD memory- it seems as of late the number of files I can hold are getting whittled down to nothing.  :evil:

Right on! Dragon Spirit wasn't the greatest game out there, but it does have some kick ass tunes.

Your not alone either in your love of video game music, the only music I listen to is chip music!

As for your save problems Sinistron, different games require different amounts of save space, I can't remember but does the TG-16 cd/duo tell you how much space each save is taking up? I do know that many times I couldn't even start a game until I formatted the system memory. I know this is because it had not been powered on in a while and therefore the saves were lost and the ram needed to be initialized. Maybe from all of the saving and deleting your cd system memory isn't "optimally organized" for lack of a better term? Or maybe Exile II is one of those games that eat up most of the save memory? I hate to say it but you may have to format it if you want to save in Exile II.

Some games require more space than others. Might and Magic III, for example, requires the entire save game memory to be free in order to start. Perhaps Exile II is the same. I'm not sure-- I only started it up once for literally about 3 minutes to watch the intro cinema and see what gameplay was like. I don't remember what my save memory situation was like at that time.

You need a Ten no Koe so you don't have to worry about losing files.  :D

Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: Necromancer on April 30, 2008, 04:29:49 AM
Not so fast, tex; a format may not be necessary.  Exile: Wicked Phenomenon is a greedy bastard and eats up 1155 of the 1726 save space 'chunks' (bits, bytes, nibbles?) and Shape Shifter is eating up an additional 177.  I don't know about Lady Sword's save file size, but it's quite possible that it's eating up more than 394 chunks and needs to be cleared out to make room for W.P.  Of course, the only thing that you'll be saving is Shape Shifter, so maybe a format is in order anyway.  For whatever it's worth, erasing Dracula X, Ys IV, and Loom's files cleared out 144, 47, and 66 chunks, respectively (I don't know about Rainbow Islands).

I can't remember but does the TG-16 cd/duo tell you how much space each save is taking up?

No, though Order of the Griffon and Falcon will.

No, though Order of the Griffon and Falcon will.

Also for those folks with flash carts, CCovell has a fantastic file manager utility that not only lists file sizes but allows you to manipulate them, edit them, even back up individual files. Not to mention the standard format, delete, etc. Of course you need a flash cart to be able to use it, but I've found that one utilitiy singlehandedly almost makes it worth the price of admission.

Jesus Jones- why the hell does this game use so much save memory?  What the hell is it saving other than a coded list of your items and levels?  :-s

Hmmm.  Thankfully I just stopped being such a crybaby and bought a tennokoe card.  It won't make up for all the files I erased- but at least I'll be able to save all the pervy pics of the fine ladies from my Lady Sword clear  :wink:

Exile only takes up 96 for each save, so why W.P. is such a pig is a real mystery.  At least that's for three saves and not just one; Sim Earth and M&MIII allow only one save and nearly fill 'er up.

Yeah, Last Alert isn't as satisfying to beat as other games because it is too easy. At least it is pretty long, but it would have been great if there was a difficulty setting (or unlockable).

In the past, I've mentioned that one of the koolest "subtle" touches that I loved in Last Alert is when our hero, Guy Kazama, yells "INDRA!!!!!!" when he's on the elevator at the end of the game. IIRC, there are two audio tracks-one with just the usual boss tune, one with boss tune + "INDRA!!!!!!". I also thought the ending credit music and "splashdown" ending sequence + credits was pretty satisfying, even though it isn't elaborate. Also, to back it up a bit, I forgot to mention that I always thought it was neat when Dr. Garcia (?) escaped and Guy ran after him and chased him into space. I'm a sucker for that sort of thing. It's a fun transition from one stage to the next. Maybe that's why I like the end of Bonk's Adventure so much!

Also, I wasn't the biggest fan of the character designs in Last Alert. I don't know how I would re-design them, but I always felt that they could be better (at least they are a step-up from the "Little People" found in R.B.I. Baseball (NES) and Power League, right?).

Don't get me wrong, I dig Last Alert, especially the different types of missions that it offered... I kinda wish they released a sequel-on-steroids.

yeah a sequel would've been choice- and it is the cat's ass when Guy yells approaching Indra- I actually got kind of freaked out and turned my head thinking someone was in the room with me- wasn't expecting it.  I too love when bosses are chased into outerspace just like in Megaman games.  Just would have been nice if just standing there shooting wasn't a way to beat the last few bosses.

yeah a sequel would've been choice- and it is the cat's ass when Guy yells approaching Indra- I actually got kind of freaked out and turned my head thinking someone was in the room with me- wasn't expecting it.  I too love when bosses are chased into outerspace just like in Megaman games.  Just would have been nice if just standing there shooting wasn't a way to beat the last few bosses.
Yeah, Last Alert needed some tough bosses... maybe then it would have felt O.K. to get through the stages pretty easily--only to face a formidable foe at the end. The "laser boomerang" Generalissimo dude from Bloody Wolf is far more challenging than anything in Last Alert.

Gain Ground SX, Double Dragon II, Fray, Kiadan 00 (sp?)

Gain Ground is even more fun than I remembered it to be, plus it has excellent music that really fits each stage.

I don't know what to think of Fray (piece of crap or easy joyride?), and Kiadan 00 seems like it might have potential, even though it initially doesn't grab you by the balls, so to speak.

Double Dragon II -- just confirming that the music complements each stage. It does.

Finally got Exile II rolling after receiving my Tennokoe card- I'm actually pretty far into it- level six- the second Baghdad stage.  I heard a whole lot about this US version's difficulty- so far I can't say that I see it.  I heard that you needed to be practically leveled all the way up to beat the second boss- Crully.  Well- I did have to level up quite a bit- but not to the second to last level like I heard.  Leveling up doesn't take as long as I feared either- it actually moves along pretty quick.  Now- on the sixth stage- I believe I'm at the penultimate level- at least judging by the power bar.  Using tonics and changing your characters up mid boss fights (especially for the mummy and sword boss) is quite important too. 

Overall I dig it. It has some things better than Exile I- some things worse.  As Runin mentioned- it's more linear- that isn't an improvement.  The hit detection is spotty.  Also the overworld graphics seem less impressive.  There is some really excellent music- one song in particular impressed me where it sounded like bagpipes- which could very well have been out of place in a board that looked to be inside of a pyramid- but somehow it worked beautifully.  The fighting stages have some impressive graphics with some nice parallex in some levels- and lastly being able to choose from five different characters is really nice.  I especially like to use the character Lawrence (though where I'm at now he's separated from the rest of the bunch and just got his ass beat by some giant heart looking thing) with his giant axe. 

I'll say it's not as good as Exile I- but judged on its own merits it's a solid game- leagues better than Valis II  :D.  I hope to finish it this week- the part I'm at now is pretty tricky with these giant bat bastards and lightning spitting dragons- but I get further each time I try.  A fun game.

I've mostly been playing Parodius, although I'm not nearly as good as I used to be.  I've also dabbled a bit in Shinobi, Blazing Lazers, and I played Parasol Stars for the first time ever.  I don't really understand what the heck is going on in that game yet, but it's pretty fun.

Just beat Exile II- this time the Djinn boss didn't touch me- gave him a sound beating.  The final boss- that heart-on-a-wall guy- I wasn't expecting to be such a joke- that was pretty bad- like Mother Brain in the Gradius games- and what's up with the burp at the very end of the game?  Some dude burps and says something like "well that was silly" and then a chick laughs.  Felt like a giant middle finger- like "this game sucks- you wasted your time now here's your prize".  It didn't suck- it was okay- but pales next to Exile I.  I also didn't get much playtime out of it- first night I played it once- second night I got to what I didn't realize was the final board- and tonight the third night playing it I'm through it.  I remember getting much more playtime out of Exile I.  Again though it was okay.  Some good music in there.

Not much of a task- but I beat that Future Boy Conan game last night.  Some real good cutscene stuff there between each level (6 levels), and some truly great music (for my tastes)- but the game- aside from one or two tricky jumping bits- is pretty nonexistent.  Though I've never seen any of the Future Boy Conan episodes- I'm a Miyazaki fan so this was worth me picking up- even though the game is subpar.

The opening battles are ridiculous, and the fact that all this ends with a bittersweet ending only makes it worse. The fact that-SPOILER ALERT!-Laura dies at the end-END SPOILER-should be on a top ten list of "That's Not Fair!" moments in video game history.

Also, my little sister just so happens to be really good at Ys Book I & II! She is at the Noltia Glacier, but is taking a break.

Well, it's got some really interesting options as far as different types of steering and such. I actually like almost all the PC Engine racing games so it's hard for me to say it's better or worse then Final Lap Twin.  8-[  I think you can pick it up fairly cheap so if you like these types of games I say give it a shot. Get Racing Spirits too if you don't already have it.

Thanks for your thoughts.  Yeah I have Racing Spirits- haven't given it a good day in court yet though- just a prelim.  Racing hucards I have Final Lap Twin, Out Run, Chase HQ, MotoRoader, Racing Spirits, Power Drift and F1 Circus- that's probably about how I'd rank 'em too- though admittedly Racing Spirits is the one I've yet to really give serious play time to.  From the little of it I've played though I didn't feel like it stacked up to Final Lap Twin- but Final Lap Twin also has killer chip tunes (among my favorite) and that quest mode going for it.  You're right though F1 Triple is dirt cheap so I really can't go wrong in buying it to see for myself.

My biggest gripe with Racing Spirits is that it has some super annoying music in the game. I never really gave F1 Triple a chance until recently but it's grown on me. It can be real challenging depending on the steering type and engine you choose.

Just beat Hero Tonma for the first time- I've played it a few times before and got decently far (though it is a SHORT game)- this time I just ran through it.  Wasn't much of a challenge and damn the last boss is a joke.  Can't believe they gave him his own level with no stage or anything- just him.  I liked this game at first but after beating it my appreciation of it has worn down considerably- it plays decent enough, has some chip tunes I'm fond of and looks nice in spots- but it's just too damn short and simple.  In the same vein as Ninja Spirit for me- although Ninja Spirit is admittedly a better game.

Played Override for the first time last night and I was raving about it on the shoutbox- It is awesome- Definitely above average.  I'd put it in my top five favorite overhead hucard shooters.  To me it feels like Psycho Chaser, Final Blaster, Image Fight and Blazing Lazers thrown into a blender.  The graphics, color and music recall Psycho Chaser, the secondary weapons recall the weapons in Final Blaster and Image Fight (even the red Image Fight directional pods), and it has the kick-ass gameplay and the ability to push the screen further left or right like in Blazing Lazers.  It also has a huge shot that powers up when idle, a multitude of secondary weapons that can be powered up like 4 or five times, a regular shot that can be powered up, speed selection, great parallex on several levels, a boss rush, zero slowdown, blistering intense action and tons of enemies filling the screen.  Only drawback is perhaps it's a bit too easy- especially for a wriggler like myself- Playing it for the first time I already reached and almost defeated the final boss- but man this game has GREAT gameplay and like I said it's pretty intense.  All this and it's only a two meg cart- I was really surprised by this one- a definite recommendation.

Last night I finally got to the end boss of Bonk's Adventure.  Despite the power ups between the bosses, the boss rush is too hard.  The level-3 boss always kills me too many times with his air punching.

By the time I finally get to the real boss, I don't have enough lives to beat him.  (I seem to get hit whenever I hit him, too).

What a frustrating endgame.

Edit: although Last Alert is worse -- the last level in that game is so insanely cheap, which is bizarre given how easy the rest of the game is.

Well, for me, the levels are easy, but a couple of those bosses' patterns are killing me.  Once I figure those out a bit better I'm sure I'll have an easier time.

There's a lot of free guys and points spread around Bonk's Adventure Lochlan-

I beat Override last night- didn't use continues either. I'll spare you guys my relentless gushing on this title this time around.

My Terra Cresta II arrived today and I played it-
It's above average.  Some gorgeous background graphics here- a bit of parallex (third and fourth boards- although strangely each "stage" has two boards each with their own bosses that don't seem connected in any way- so the third board is called Stage 2-1).  I reached the 7th board- or Stage 4-1 as its called- wanted to keep going but Sue was egging me to take her to pick up her prescription.  Anyway- apart from the great backgrounds- it starts off kind of slow with not many enemies on screen- things only seem to start getting difficult from the fifth board on.  Even then its still a slow scrolling shooter- not really too intense- there's even some occasional slowdown (there is a select speed for your ship though- I kept it mostly on 3 or 4 (the highest)).  A lot of the enemies are reminiscent of enemy strings from Galaga.  The weapons are interesting- I'm not exactly sure how to explain it in detail yet but it seems that when you get a power-up you are able to switch up and place an option- or several options- in front of you up to three times for a strong wave laser. Interestingly before each board starts you can change the firing direction of the different power-up shells.  A lot of common shooter stuff is thrown at you, like exploding volcanoes, creeping vines, and maze like wall structures- however it seems almost like a fairly new experience due to the detailed (for a chip game) graphics.  The music seemed pretty decent- nothing that really grabbed me by the balls though.  The bosses have some interesting patterns but are easier to beat than the actual levels.  Overall I'd say it's an above average overhead hucard shooter- but not on the level where I place The Star Soldier games, Blazing Lazers, Override and Image Fight.  I place it higher than Final Blaster- it feels like a better play- but not by a whole lot.  So what exactly makes this an above-average shooter?  The background graphics for the most part- also I love having a tiny ship- especially when there's good hit detection- I was amazed that at times I was even able to wriggle through enemies that came out on a string- some good wriggling action though nothing as intense as Override- however it doesn't try to be so intense- it's pretty laid back for the most part- and it establishes a solid mood.  Is it worth the 100+ it regularly goes for on EBay?  No.  If you want overhead hucard shooter action at this speed you might want to save your money and pick up Final Blaster or Galaga '88/90 (though I'm sure a good number of us here have Galaga)- or you might not- lol.  It's your call.  I picked up the hucard loose for 50 on EvilBay- thanks to runin for showing me the link. 

So it's pretty good- solid even- just not great.  Definitely worth playing- but not at the high price.  If you're looking for an intense overhead hucard shooter this isn't it.  Get the Soldier games, Image Fight, BL and Override.  If you're looking for an expensive mostly laid back shooter with lush background graphics- then this is your ticket.

Post by: Sinistron on May 31, 2008, 10:38:24 PM
You know Nat you're 110% right.  My opinion of Terra Cresta II is completely different- I had to just pause the game now to come in and say that.  I think honestly from just playing a more busy and fluid shooter to then playing a slow one with backgrounds that are so pretty that your mind wavers that I wasn't able to judge it correctly.   The music is also MUCH better than I initially thought it to be.  The music, graphics, bosses and interesting weapon system definitely make this top shelf- it's definitely the best of the slower type shooters- makes the Dragon Spirit games look like trash in comparison.  I also like when you collect all of the ship pieces- cool shit.  This would be a great game to zone out too- another reason why I'm loving it so much right now at 5:30 in the morning  :)  Ceti you'll love this game.

ps Now I see that there really aren't bosses in the Stage .0's and that their themes are intertwined with the .2 Stages.   #-o

I also have to say now that yes, this game is worth getting- but only if it sounds like your cup of tea, and hopefully for cheaper than what it goes for.

Hell yeah, the Download games are some very underrated shooters on the system. Unique, interesting, challenging, and all around great fun. Good soundtracks too.

I've beaten both of them.... good times. Although I personally prefer the first-- it's tougher than the 2nd and just "hit the spot" a little better for me. The 2nd game was an easy clear, cleared it the first time I played it.

great review, TurboStar.   I had a good time playing OotG when I gave it a go as well.  Took me an entire day just to get started. I couldn't make it beyond that dungeons with the red/blue pools..  it was just so crazy hard for me I figured I had no chance of making it after that. I will say I had a ton of fun setting up my characters and basically learning how to play, though.  The battles can be really fun, too.

Dragon Egg- I just cleared this game my second time with it, I only got it [from electrohaze] like a week ago. My opinion of this game reflects runinruder's exactly, so just see his review here (http://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/index.php?topic=2047.msg90668#msg90668) and be done with it.

The only thing that I can add is that I was initially turned off by this game as the graphics in the first level, unlike the rest of the game, are a horrible, ugly dark brown mess. As a matter of fact, I would have never bothered with this game at all had it not been for runin's review. Once you get past the first area, the visuals pick up for the better. This game boats some really neat Mode 7-ish effects (put to great use, mind you, not pointlessly implemented like so many SNES games) and the game plays really smoothly without a hint of slowdown. Anyway, that's all I'm gonna say really, just see runin's review.

Either way, Power Golf 2 is definitely the better title in just about every area. All that said, Power Golf isn't half bad and probably doesn't entirely deserve it's bad rap. It showed up in my mailbox today, all new fresh and sealed from SimpleSimon's store, costing me a total of about $13 (yes, that's even after the hefty shipping from Europe). Not bad considering $13 doesn't even get me three gallons of gas these days.

For a golf game, it's about as bare bones as they come, but it gets the job done. Gameplay wise the only thing that seemed a little funky was control of the shot (stroke power & curve). The game utilizes the classic power meter most golf games love to use, but I found it incredibly difficult to stop the meter where I wanted (I don't have this problem in other golf games that use this method) and even the slightest inaccuracy in this regard caused my drive to curve substantially to the left or right. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad but it was definitely touchier than it should have been.

I played through the entire standard single-player mode and other than the quirk mentioned above, it was a pleasant enough experience. There is only one in-game tune but it's pleasant enough and didn't get on my nerves. There's only one course you can play, but what do you expect from a 1980's golf simulation? I should add however that I've always been into video golf games. There are two kinds of video golf lovers-- those who enjoy the game for what it is, and what I call "arcade" golf lovers. I'm something of the former, where the latter folks view it as "just another video game" and tend to get impatient easily with typical golf simulations, just wanting the game to hurry up and move along. As a youngster I started my video golfing playing MacGolf on our Mactintosh Plus in the mid to late 80's where in between shots it took anywhere from 60 full seconds to 2 minutes to re-draw the scenery. Any minor delays present in any of the Turbo golf games seem like nanoseconds by comparison and thus my game of Power Golf seemed to go quickly and smoothly.

In the long run though, unless you're into video golf games on some level, Power Golf will probably come across as much too primitive and you'll have more fun pointing and laughing at the dated course graphics than with the gameplay itself. Those people, along with the "arcade golfers," are better off passing up Power Golf in favor of Power Golf 2 or another golf game (runinruder keeps telling me Fine Shot Golf from Human is the best golf game on the system but I've yet to try it out). For those folks like me who grew up on MacGolf or any of the multiple golf games on the Amiga 500/1000, pick up Power Golf on the cheap and you'll probably enjoy an afternoon reminiscing about playing video golf on your computer after school as a youngster.

I can really love a good golf game.  I forget the name of the game I played back in my first run of video game hobby (circa '86-'92) but it was an entirely lost memory (now a foggy memory) until the Neo Geo fell into my lap with it's two funny and cute golf games.
It's a shame the Turbo doesn't have a real gem of a golf game of it's own (but we DO have WCT/FLT).  Could you imagine a post-Magical Chase golf game by Quest in '93? (akin to the Turf Masters/Metal Slug thing on the Geo)

The Turbo really ended on a high note..  If they could've just hung in there for a few more titles there's a good chance we'd have one or a few more age-defying classics.

Nice game though, eh?

Too bad it was so easy.

On the "easy" note...


Somer Assault-- This game is right up there with Dragon EGG! as far as difficulty (or lack thereof) goes. You are a slinky, and your mission is to thwart an evil sorceress' plans to take over the world. The best I could describe this game is as a platform/shooter hybrid. You'll slink through all 12 levels in no time. The boss characters, all somehow related to the Zodiac are slightly more challenging than the levels themselves but you should have no trouble 1cc'ing the game on your first or second try. That is, until the final boss battle(s). You'll face a gauntlet of all 12 bosses all over again, in sequence, and then be confronted with the evil sorceress who's spirit proceeds to take on many different forms. The final boss gauntlet and battles themselves probably take up more time than the rest of the game combined (!!!).  I had no trouble clearing the game up until this point, however, I died on my initial encounter with the sorceress. While you have unlimited continues, you are only granted three lives and your, uhm, slinky is reverted to his weakest level. Also, you have to start the final battle all over again. I spent 40 minutes devising patterns and plans to best the sorceress, who then changes into three evil slinkys, and then changes a second time into three evil heads, only to fail, fail, fail every time. I think the object is probably to reach this point fully powered up and just, uh, don't die. I never did beat the three heads, so I have no idea if they morph again, but needless to say after 40 minutes I was extremely frustrated. It's a pity they didn't make the difficulty in this game a little more balanced, as you'll have lots of fun slinking around the stages trying to find the boss room. The level designs are very good for the most part, with a few that felt like they were thrown together fairly quickly. Graphics are top-notch with great character design and excellent shading on everything. You're also treated to a superb soundtrack that is just delightful which I'm 99% sure was done by the same guy who did Dungeon Explorer (both games were developed by Atlus). Expect more upbeat stuff here and less of the somber you get with DE, although just a few of the musical cues sound like they were taken straight out of DE.  I'd be utterly shocked if the same person wasn't responsible for both game's music. Despite the horrendously unbalanced difficulty, I'd still recommend this game. It's unique enough that it's got something for everyone... I sure as hell have never played anything like it, and all the good here was good enough to make the negatives seem insignificant. It's gonna bug me that I didn't finish off the final battle though, so I'll probably give it another go in a day or two. At least this time I'll know it's imperative to be fully powered up by the final battle.

The only real challenge for most of Somer Assault is being able to find the boss before time runs out.  It's almost ridiculously easy if set your birthdate for the first stage, though it's better to set it for the last in preparation for the boss guantlet.

Just cleared Genji Tsushin Agedama.  Great game, fantastic even  :).  Boss rush at the end conducted by a wizard , when you beat the wizard gun turrets guard a bunker- it is difficult to not get hit at least once by the wizard's two ghouls or by the gun turrets.  Then a giant purple face does some attack patterns and slopes his eyes toward you- I actually only had one hit left when I beat him- took a few tries.  Clear number 63  :D

You have to beat the game, dude. I agree that it is a game that should be recommended to folks. It is an odd melding of genres, so it certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea. Personally, I love the puzzle+action+shooting+bizzarro mechanics of this game.

Now, if I could just get you to start showin' some love for Veigues (http://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/index.php?topic=723.msg3936#msg3936) ...

Power League II Pennant Mode- finally beat the team that was proving to be a real nightmare- The Carks.  Whenever they choose their left-handed pitcher for their starter he's all nastiness and really brings the business.  Well- last night- my team (the Drums) destroyed the Carks 14 zip for their seventh victory.  Knocked that left handed clown for a few loops- even rocked a grand slam off him and then they finally took his tired ass out.  I believe there's two more matches for the pennant and then I can finally chalk up Power League II as another clear.

The naming in the Turbo version is actually "correct."

The versions you are used to playing are actually the ones with the guys misnamed-- domestic US ports which had the names altered because of potential racial issues.

Once you get the hang of handling your ATACs, it gets far easier. I had trouble with it the very first time, but the second time I absolutely slaughtered it and have had no trouble since. Understanding the capabilities of each machine is important too, and figuring out the fastest way to reach each city given the environments around them. Exploiting weaknesses in the enemy's AI also helps tremendously...enemy ATACs will not fire their missles until they are perfectly aligned with you, so it's very, very easy to bait them into firing repeatedly and wasting their missiles. Watch out for ATACs that have charge times on missile fire though...if you try the "bait and evade" tactic with them, you have to use good timing or else they might send a missile up your tail. :D An ATAC without missiles is largely a sitting duck, even against much weaker ATACs (of course, this doesn't exactly apply to some of the super-powered ATACs such as Stormer or the ultra-badass Reaper that can just punch you to death or fill you full of powerful bullets). Another thing to get under control is the firing of your own missiles. Some ATACs fire right away, some have a charge time. If you play as Falial, an army of Grunts (Grunt, Sandgrunt, or Aquagrunt) can be very effective in keeping back some of the bigger enemy ATACs. If you play as Stefan, Blenders do the same for him (Scouts are largely useless, though they do pack one hell of an arsenal of missiles). Both of these ATACs fire their missiles immediately. ATACs like Leech, Disruptor, and Bile have charge times on their missiles, so a good way of using them is to start firing, THEN aim your shot rather than aim and fire. When I play as Stefan, I can play through many of the land maps only building Blenders and finishing off the enemy base with a Bile or two. If you need any further help with the game, let me know. :D

Anyways, I'm not playing anything at the moment, as my TG is at my new house where there's no power just yet.

HAHA, that's classic. You'll know when a boss fight happens. If you don't, you haven't got to one yet. Keep trying. The game is initially tough until you figure out it's nuances. Pointers: Avoid the purple bubbley weapon to start, by far the best weapon is the blue swirl, but it's kind of weak until you power it up. You have to collect a number of the blue swirls subsequently, it will power the weapon up one level each time you collect one. Just avoid the purple one.

Yeah, and if you have a TurboStick, use slow. Not only does it make the game beatable in the later stages (I mean "Scenes"...how stupid is that?? What ever happened to "Stage 1"...what's this "Scene A" froufrou nonsense?), but it also stops you from dying by continually recharging your life.

The only enjoyable (in my opinion) thing about that game is the opening music piece. Sometimes I'll load the chip, let it play, and then move on to something else.


But to address your point more legitimately, I have to say it's not my fault that the Slow feature regenerates life; I use Slow because I need to slow the game down to beat it. I feel a game is still righteously beaten if you used slow to do it.

Although I'm probably VERY alone in that opinion....

Using SLOW mode completely defeats the purpose of playing the game.... You're just taking advantage of a glitch in the code and cheating. Where's the fun in that?

Just cleared Final Zone II. This game is a real diamond in the rough. I love the various gameplay modes and getting to play different characters. In the last couple levels the character you choose really determines how well you do. The voice acting is terrible, but it's so bad it's good. It's better than bad, it's good.

The final boss music will change your life forever.

In honour of Final Zone II: (I believe this is the Happy Console Gamer)

Blood Gear looks pretty damn cool - Veigues, with a little more platforming. Good combo.  8)

Right now Star Parodia has my full attention.

I can see that Bikkuriman World is going to be a long stretched out battle. lol There's this hidden boss on stage 3, IIRC. It's the boss with the scarf over her face and she throws those boulders at you. I just can't seem to beat her. She takes a shit load of hits. I've been stuck on her for weeks. I might just skip her and move on because I've made it to level 9 without fighting her. It will kill me not knowing what beating her gives you.  ](*,)

I've been getting back into Military Madness.

I got into this game way later than I should have (September 2005), but when I did, it was like CRACK. I COULD NOT STOP PLAYING IT, and every campaign I won was a rush of orgiastic triumph.

The game consumed my waking thoughts. When I closed my eyes, I saw little white hexagons with tanks in them.


Still, I beat the game a couple of weeks later, and decided to try my hand at the "advanced" maps. Some of them were more challenging, and some were unbelievably easy.

And then, at level 26, "ATTAYA", I hit a f**king wall.

Has anyone here beaten that level? I cannot go for more than a few turns before it starts to get hopeless. I found an online walkthru, but the strategy for this level references using units that I don't have (e.g., Panther) so I don't trust it fully. The author did, to his credit, say that he thought this was the hardest level in the game.


I love this game. I wish it wouldn't torture me so.

Dude.

I don't know if talking to other Turbo junkies is theraputic or what, but I decided to give level 26 another go tonight. I started at about 8:42PM, and finished at about 10:15PM...BUT I WON!!!!!

God, talk about time-consuming, nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat action!

A nice touch to this game, I've always thought, is how the music changes to a more optimistic piece when your forces are double what the enemies' are.

Friggin' rock and roll, man...I feel awesome right now. That stage has been bugging me for like three years now.

Also, I overleveled in Ys I and beat Dark Fact in 3-4 hits. That was awesome. That first boss in Ys II though, that was bull. You die in one hit!? That's ridiculous! Maybe I didn't level up enough, but GOD! Still, I'm almost there now.

Holy hell, noone's played a Turbo games since Nov 08?  Ok, ok I know there is another thread in Console Chat however that thread covers ANY system.  Well, I don't care at all about other systems, I care about what Turbo games people are playing.

Finished off Cyber Core and wanted some more shooter action.  I've been playing Blazing Lazers.  I don't really have any troubles until I get to level 9.  Once I'm there and a few bosses in, it all goes down hill.   All the bosses are easy but getting to them is hell.

Inspired by the "Game of the Week" thread, I pulled out Vigilante for the PCE. Beat that sucker (1CC, no, of course I didn't lose a single life).

Then I revisited Space Invaders HuCard, which I've been obsessed with, for some bizzarro reason. I like the updated version.

Of course, I couldn't turn off the PCE without getting some good old Gomola Speed under the belt. Damn, I love that game.

Hey Roy,
At the risk of stating the obvious (and something that maybe everyone already knows):
I used to have a tough time with Blazing Lazers too...here's what eventually got me through.
Although it isn't mentioned in the instruction manual, there's a way to earn several chances to "come back" after you die...ever notice how sometimes, when you die, you can just keep going right there? Whereas, sometimes after dying you have to start back at the last "checkpoint"?
Well, the way to earn more chances is to *always keep shooting* those rotating "4-in-1" weapon balls. If you shoot them long enough, they turn into a flashing rainbow ball that acts like a POW.
For every rainbow ball you collect, you have one more chance to fight without being sent back.

As a result, I NEVER collect those 4-in-1 balls unless it's something I absolutely need. This makes beating the final stages much easier.

Hope this was helpful!

As for me, I've been playing a lot of Space Harrier lately. I finally heard the hero say in his garbled digital voice nonsense, "Welcome to the Fantasy Zone" or whatever he says. I didn't know he was even talking!!

I did notice that sometimes that happened but I didn't even give it a second thought as to why.  I just took a look in the manual to see what it says and I couldn't find it in there at all.  Not doubting you, I just wanted to see exactly what it said.  Definately some excellent info and now that I know it, I think it should ease things up a TON.  Thanks man!

After all these years of playing it, I can still go to this game and feel like my mind is blown by all of the elements that make up many of the stages of the game. Love the butterfly that turns into the boss lady, my favorite boss in this game. And the laughing place is really weird. Love this game. True confession here, I still have not been able to defeat the final boss in this game. I seem to lose everything trying to defeat him everytime!  #-o

I agree. 5 player Dungeon Explorer is pretty sweet too.

I am currently playing "Don Doko Don" aka Bubble Bobble 4. Just got to Stage 40 (out of 50). Difficult game with only 6 continues.

IMO Bomberman 93 isn't just the best Multi-Player on the Turbo it's the best Multi-Player game ever.

Once a winter I get together with some old friends and we play Bomberman 93 for money. Go like $2 per person per round and drink some beers and it's a ball. Also the only game my wife and kids will all play together.

I dunno for me as a best multi player ever was either off road or gauntlet in the arcade as far as tg/pce id say bomberman 93.  As far as me Im playin blazing lazers at level seven. and got.

Well it's my first time playing it so obviously it's going to take me a lil longer.  I haven't been playing it nonstop, just off and on as I'm in the mood so I have no idea how long it's taken me.  Currently sitting at the last boss.  I'm close but just can't seem to finish him off.

It's a tough one, been playing myself the last week again. Going to have to take a break though. The last level is really starting to piss me off, I get there with 2-3 continues and still have yet to reach the final boss. It seems like a game that's real fun to play for a few days then you have to take some time off or Controllers get broken. Someday I'll beat that Mother...

It did take ALOT of plays before I finally beat it. Couple things that helped that I learned are the closer you get to enemies the faster they fall. This is very helpful on level 2,3,5,6 Bosses and a few other spots in levels where bigger enemies come out. Also, that jerk off on stage 5 with the red circles around him where he keeps firing bullets at you the best way I found is to not even shoot, just hold down the blaster button and erase those bullets as many times as possible. That guy use to beat me like 4 times every run till I started doing that. Either way it's one tough shooter.

The blaster weapon is so important in this game. Not only does it clear out bullets, but it also slows you down, which is great for tight spots (the bullet dude and the last stage).

Sweet! I am planning on buying Parodius Da! this week sometime. I was surprised how affordable it is for such a great game. In fact, all the Parodius releases are inexpensive. As soon as I get a Saturn I will be buying Sexy Parodius. I read that it's the best of the series.

As for Spriggan, good luck with the final boss. I had to use a cheat code to beat him. But, I didn't cheat until I got to him. Played the game honestly until then.

yeah I paid like 25 bucks for it.  I really like odd games like that.  If you have any others that are off the beatin path let me know. perhaps I skipped one..  I didnt know of a spriggan code..  i think i could beat em.

More Implode fun was had over the weekend.  Did you know that in levels 40(ish) and up the bonus given for removing all blocks from the screen is actually subtracted from your score?  It might go back to adding it to your score at some point; I threw in the towel at level 52, when it was three in the morning and I'd been playing for five+ hours.

Anyone know the maximum clear % available in this game?

100%, of course.

I haven't beaten Dracula X yet because Dracula's different forms keep kicking my ass. But, like with Lords of Thunder, I will clear that game one day.

Also, at least Drac's chamber has an actual floor and not platforms and pits to get knocked into like the SNES version. That's just cheap and unfair IMO.

I bet you're right, though it didn't really matter since the score passed 999,999 (back to zero) about ten rounds earlier.  Also buggy is how some levels freeze and no new blocks will appear unless you force 'em by holding down button I.  :?

long time lurker, finally decided to join the discussion...

Replaying Blood Gear for the third time currently, such an amazing game, but I got stuck because I forgot that in order to get the bazooka thingie that blows up the barrier in the water rising fortress, I need to talk to a scientist who will give you the bazooka BUT ADVICE TO THOSE THAT HAVEN'T PLAYED IT YET....  If your inventory is full he won't give you anything :(

Before that replayed the Exile series.  I may be one of the few that actually likes the second one better, and despite the difficulty level, all the bosses have patterns.  Once you learn those it becomes a cinch!!!

Finished "Final Soldier" yesterday . Fun shooter which didn't get dificult till level 5 for me . Dunno what to try now . Maybe Parodus or (finaly) Magical Chase .

Also played through Niko Niko Pun , but that took all of ten minutes . I would have been pissed had I actualy payed for it .

Then re-played through Hana Taka Daka , got all the pieces and.....didn't even get diferent credits .

Also currently am at the begining of Youkai Douchuuki , but I don't realy know what to buy from the shop as most of it has no use when I try bringing it up .

Finaly about NAI , I got to a spot early on that I can't jump over normaly any ideas ?

(That reminds me I need to replay Wonderboy and finish it)

Been playing a little bit of Star Parodier lately. It's a decent game, but I am coming off the heels of Parodius Da! and Star Parodier pales in comparison IMO.

Finaly about NAI , I got to a spot early on that I can't jump over normaly any ideas ?

hmmm...What stage are you on where you're having trouble?  :-k

Oh, do you have the turbo switches on the right settings? If the jump button isn't set to the right position you won't be able to jump very high. I betcha that's the problem right there.

I've been playing Forgotten Worlds lately.  If it weren't for the slow-ass rotating and shit voices, I'd really like this game.

I haven't played much of Forgotten Worlds on any platform. Are these issues unique to the PCE or to all ports?

If I'm not mistaken, the poor voices were taken directly from the arcade; if the other ports have 'em (likely not), they are surely no better and probably worse.  As for the controls, the arcade had a rotary knob, which simply can't be accurately replicated with a couple of buttons.  I'd guess that the Genny would be a bit less awkward with three 'real' buttons (as would an Avenue Pad 3), but my wireless controllers force me to use the Run button.  :|

The best way to play Forgotten Worlds IMO is on Capcom Classics Collection on the PS2. Using the two analog sticks ala Robotron works pretty well.

Not sure about that .

But I do think that I was pressing the run button as would anyone in this situation , unless the "run" button refers to the one starting the game (or any other specific button outside the d-pad) .

Well course I am :P

Yame has been prety reliable to me so far . You gotta love it can play four diferent formats , three of which belong to nintendo (NES , SNES , GB) . Couldn't find any working emulator for the SNES that makes external save states (which made playing through Super Bonk 2 a real pain cause , even if the game is marvelously big and overall beautifull , it doesn't run on yame without sprites flickering) . I dunno if it's some setting thing , honestly .

I just purchased a few more titles for my US collection; I only have 33 left to acquire...
But one of my recent purchases was World Class Baseball. The game is aesthetically pleasing and seems to have smooth play, but I am getting my a** kicked whenever I try to play! My outfielders are never where I need them to be and run like tortoises, and my bat seems to have a hole in it.

Anyone have any advice on this game? I want to like it, and eventually beat it!

Re: World Class Baseball, when your fielder puts up his glove you're in the right spot. I still love and play this game after all these years.
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: kid_rondeau on July 20, 2010, 09:12:02 AM
Thanks Obfuscate! Your tip actually made a big difference in my defense. OK, here's another question though...in the manual, on page 11 under "Playing Defense", it has this technique:
-----------------------------------
Changing the Position of the Fielders
You can change the position of the fielders by
pressing the RUN button and the Direction
Key at the same time (only one position change
per ball is possible). Try some new positions
for better defense.
-----------------------------------
Note: The direction to press is based on the direction you'd like your fielders to go. Up for deep defense, down for forward defense, etc.

So, I can't get this to work. At least, not in any noticeable way. If the batter I'm pitching to has a powerful swing, I'll wanna bring my outfielders deeper, right? So at the mound I'll press Up and RUN together, but nobody moves. Am I doing this right? The manual is kind of lacking in detail.

Anyway, my defense improved to the point where I only lost 1-0. My batting still sucks.
Any advice in this department? Besides the obvious timing issue, how can I hit a ball past the infield?
Finally, if I have a switch hitter, how do I tell him to hit the other side? Or will a switch hitter automatically align himself based on the pitcher?

Thanks for any help you guys can give!

Post by: Obfuscate on July 21, 2010, 02:29:31 AM
Rondeau, I don't move my feidlers around until after they hit, no need to. Also, hitting is mainly timing and swinging at good pitches but don't be jamming on the Direction Pad when you hit, just line up right and push the 1 button. Try using the Ninjas until you get good at it as they have a good hitting team.

I really liked both Tennis games as a kid, I liked the Quest in World Court and the Tournies in Davis Cup. In Davis Cup you have to speed up the play and play a single screen to make it more enjoyable.

I've been playing Dead Moon, really fun shooter and under-rated in my opinion. Blow up the asteroids in the 2nd stage for mega bonus points and lives, I beat it yesterday with 14 lives left, just need to beat it without losing a life so I can retire it.

Ok, so I just beat World Class Baseball...what a rush! I don't know if I just got lucky, or if the final team isn't as good as they're made out to be. (On a side note, the manual says the champion team is the "Turbo Tigers", but as far as I can see they're just called the "Champs".)

But I beat them 8-6, and I was very freaked out to see that my usual post-game sportscaster lady was replaced by some kind of ugly "Planet of The Apes" style being, with a red vest emblazoned with the letters "P C".

I will probably have nightmares about that ugly thing.

Twin Cobra was the 1st thing i popped in after all this time off from the PCE, haha.

How are you liking it? I have a hate-on for that game, but I've heard some people lately saying that they really like it.

I've been taking a break with Valis IV and playing Cybercore and Armed F - Cybercore being the better of the two. I'm actually really liking Cybercore, which is surprising because when I rented it BITD I thought it was pretty lackluster. I think the TG was so new and that there were so many more graphically impressive games that I just didn't give it much of a chance.

I just got an arcade card, so of course I'm playing Sapphire. I used to play this in college during my foreign exchange, which brings back nice memories. Also, since I used Magic Engine before and am on a real system now, this is the first time I've heard the voices after each stage. I have to say, that part is not very well done.  :?

Good game, though.  O:)

If you end up playing Magic Engine again, try loading a System 3 card rom to play CD games. That usually mixes audio problems.

Thanks for the tip, but I had done that, actually. I think the case is that every version of Magic Engine after 1.0 doesn't play those ADPCM voices after you beat a stage in Sapphire. It was a known bug. Maybe the latest ME version fixed it, and I just don't know about it?

Nope, still looking for it.  Cant seem to find the darn thing.  I am not sure if its an item drop from an enemy, or something I missed along the way.

EDIT:  I just beat it.  Not too shabby I must say.  I really enjoyed the game.  Too bad after the credits roll, you arent given the option to save.  You gotta reset it.  :(

Forgot how hard it was.  Feels rewarding to make it past the first level! I'm sure there are those of you who can beat it in one life, but I'll probably never get there.  

Awesome game, though.  Great graphics and the challenge is right there - where it kicks your ass but you can see how to improve so you try again.

Yeah, Cotton is a toughie. I can barely make it past the 3rd level boss on the default setting. The key for me is to use the turbo switch for the fire button. I always find myself accidently unleashing the special attacks by holding the fire button too long. I usually try to save those for the bosses. Cotton is an awesome game! I love the soundtrack to it.

original aren't any good, I still do it.

Yep. It's really crude, and just isn't programmed well in general. There are long load times, and some npcs pop in and out of existence instead of moving. Besides that though, the actual story is fairly enjoyable. I've found myself enjoying it, but only in hour long sessions.

Space Harrier on the Turbo is a fantastic port. Lunatics like Joe Redifer will try to convince you that the SMS version somehow looks better, but don't listen. The biggest issue with the Turbo port is the lack of a checkerboard floor. I just don't understand why that wasn't possible.

LoT SCD came out in 1993, whereas the Sega CD version was out in 1995.  I'm surprised that in 2 years Hudoson wasn't able to make it more advanced or make it a special edition.  Pretty much just cut back on the amount of colors, and added a voice to the lady in the shop.  Wasn't too impressed.

While I can understand cutting back the colors because of the limited color Palette of the Genesis, you'd think they be able to improve other areas of the game besides just adding voice to the shop lady.

And the music sounds more polished. But I think the Turbo Version's music has more of an edge. Which is better in my opinion.

Shape Shifter - I never really gave this game much time after I got it a few years ago during one of my pushes to complete my collection. But today, during a marathon session of games like Talespin, JJ & Jeff, Keith Courage, Riot Zone, and Last Alert, I decided to pop in Shape Shifter. Man, I'm glad I did. What a great game! It took a little while for me to warm up to it, but once I did, I really liked it. The audio is great, the visuals are really impressive, and I like the Simon's Quest-vibe I get from it.

My only complaints are a) The main character is a bit sluggish and I hate how he jumps. I missed a number of platforms because of his goofy jump, b) Those damn flying enemies! They don't give much damage, but they are annoying as hell. I'm talking about the flying bugs, bats, n' shit. But I guess the same is true for most games. c) The fortune-teller seems useless. I got stuck in a certain area and wasn't sure where to go next. The fortune-teller, rather than giving me a clue, simply said something to the effect of, "You have great strength inside you. That's all I have to say" and took his 30 coins. Ripoff!

Anyway, love the game and glad I finally put some time into it.

You're not alone, I think it's the "bad pack-in" stigma that people are extra harsh on it. Taken on its own merits I think it's a pretty decent and enjoyable game. I guess it depends on your mindset when you first play it.

You know I think you're right  The first time I played through It I had heard how bad the game was and that made me, with out realizing it, judge it harshly. This time after playing it before I just took it as it was, a pretty average game.

My friend had the most fun with Final Lap Twin. What a fun game!
We also set up 2 tg-16s side by side to do composite and RF comparisons on a Sony Trinitron. If I had an RGB to component converter we could have done all 3 with my Duo R.

I'm in a similar boat - I played through and beat it around 96-97 and then sold it off thinking I'd never want to play it again.  I remember the last chunk of the game being a complete grind (too many random battles, perhaps?).  Whatever it was, time has healed that wound and now I'm keeping my eye out for another copy. :)

I'll check on my scores later though I'm sure they aren't impressive.

The rainbow necklace does indeed grant 99 continues after you reach the treasure room at the end of the current planet. The true ending is achieved when you hold the wand with the star.

If you gather 5 bubbles on your Parasol to make an elemental bubble twice in one stage, that icon will appear in the next stage. Try to only make star elemental bubbles in the last stage so that will be the only icon you will get. A few planets have the option to make a miracle from 2 different elements but I always try to stick to the same ones.

You guys need to accumulate a lot of those flashing orbs that clear the screen of enemies. Every time you get one of those you can respawn from where you died once (like Soldier Blade) instead of returning to a checkpoint. The more of those you get the more times you can respawn without going back to a checkpoint.

Basically if you can clear most of the game without dying and collect a lot of those you can beat the last level with brute force.  :wink:

I played Victory Run a bit since I found it with case and manual for $9.  I seem to suck at this game though. 

I will be playing the hell out of Ys books 1+2 when it arrives later this week.

Now that I've finished putting the VHS DEMO tape on Youtube, I'm trying to put an entertaining Retrospective video together for Ninja Spirit

This is harder than it looks, guys.  First take, I talked a lot and my game skills suffered.  A lot.  Second play through I did great, but hardly said a word.  I played through it again this evening an thought I had the perfect balance of great gameplay (a few d'oh moments, but all videos should have that) and commentary.  Then I went to turn off the capture device and realized I had forgotten to turn it on at the beginning. 

Argh.

I got a weird glitch today though, I cleared stage 3 and for some reason it repeated itself and when I cleared it again I jumped to stage 5. :shock: I started a new game afterwards and when I passed stage 3 I went to stage 4 like it normally would. I Guess it was just a freak glitch.

It's very much a Naxat Soft game as many of the enemies looked like something out of either Alien Crush or Devil's Crush.

Still working my way through Cosmic Fantasy 2, and quite enjoying it.  Pico is cooler than I remembered!

Maybe it's just that I'm used to 8-bit RPGs now, but I'm surprised by how forgiving this game is: hotels are free, items are plentiful, and most non-boss battle are predictable & easy.  Does anyone know if it was toned down for NA, or is the Japanese version like this, too?

edit: Well, I just did the homework I should have done before asking this and it sounds like the answer is "the Japanese version is just as forgiving".  Strange!  But I still like the game; not everything needs to be wicked challenging.

Family went to bed early tonight, got in three solid hours of OBEY!!

Continued onward in Emerald Dragon, just an amazing beautiful game.  Finally got through the first mini dungeon, and met up with two new members of my party.
Screwed around a bit with Air ZONK on a harder difficulty.  Ok, this game isn't as easy as I remembered.
Got to the crazy fast 'last level' of LoT before having to continue.
Blasted through 19 levels of Pac Land, before getting fed up with some nasty platforming.  After finally giving this game some proper playing time, it really is pretty fun.  Can't believe its taken me this long to get into it.  :)
And of course had to blast through a few levels of Sapphire after getting my ass handed to me in Image Fight II (2nd Level....STILL).
Also spent 15 mins playing 'Takin' it to the Hoop'.. why is this game hated on so HARD?  I actually found it pretty fun, and actually felt a bit more fluid than TV sports B-ball....

Strange...Moby Games claims it was Naxat, as does Wikipedia. Of course, Wikipedia also says Compile developed them, so there goes that credibility.

Anyway, regarding Psychosis, it was apparently developed by Dual Corporation. At least, according to Moby Games.
http://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/dual-corporation/

EDIT: Upon further research, it looks like Alien Crush and Devil's Crush were co-developed by Compile and Naxat. So perhaps we're both right? Maybe. So says the internet. So who the hell knows?

Awesome way to spend the evening.  Pac Land is way more fun than I remember back in the day.  I played a bit of it yesterday (My 3-yr-obey is a huge Pac Man fan) and I always dig playing it.  Most games I prefer playing with the TurboStick, but this is one of the few the TurboPad is clearly better.  The turbo switches are easier to flip mid-action.  R-Type and the Crush games are also better on the Pad, IMO.

Today, I think for the first time, I made it to the last level of Gate of Thunder before hitting the continue screen.  That's where I quit.  Whew, the difficulty ramps up quickly!  I freaking love this game.

I have no idea who actually designed and programmed Psychosis, but I'd love to find out. It's possible Naxat did it in-house, I suppose.


Strange...Moby Games claims it was Naxat, as does Wikipedia. Of course, Wikipedia also says Compile developed them, so there goes that credibility.

Anyway, regarding Psychosis, it was apparently developed by Dual Corporation. At least, according to Moby Games.
http://www.mobygames.com/browse/games/dual-corporation/

EDIT: Upon further research, it looks like Alien Crush and Devil's Crush were co-developed by Compile and Naxat. So perhaps we're both right? Maybe. So says the internet. So who the hell knows?


MobyGames is full of shit, so is Wikipedia.

It's fairly common knowledge the Crush games were developed entirely by Compile, although if you need proof I can probably dig up about 5,343,284,783 sources for you. RED Company played some role (how big a role is unknown) in concept design for Devil's Crush, but the game was still ultimately drawn, composed and coded exclusively by Compile.

Naxat is/was a publishing house for the most part, if not exclusively. I'm not aware of any games Naxat played a part in developing off the top of my head, but that's not to say there aren't any.

Naxat and Compile had a long-running partnership where Compile would handle development while Naxat handled pressing and publishing. This union eventually became known as "Nazac," which is not only an obvious play on the the Naxat and Compile labels, but an anagram of Compile's first shooter "Zanac."

The moral of the story here is don't rely on what you see on the title screen for information on who developed a game. The copyright holder is almost always the publishing house and in many cases the developer is not even listed. The title screen for Blazing Lazers says "(C) 1989 Hudson Soft" but BL is just yet another Compile developed title. You don't even find this out until the final credit scroll after you beat the game.

I wouldn't be surprised to see an extensive article appear somewhere in the not too distant future that clarifies a lot of these points.

Beast is EPIC! 

Spent another hour late last night clearing some more of Emerald Dragon.  Did the level up dance, added the bald Cleric/healing priest dude to my part by defeating the wall monster statue thing!!  Just kick ass, this game is so getting the soundtrack treatment!

After that, I got pwnd by Image Fight II again.  I'm actually regressing in this one.  Getting worse every time I play it.  I have it set to Normal and cannot beat the first boss, I've gotten to a point where I can do the entire first stage on one guy, completely loaded up on addons and badass weapons, but the boss is killing me!  I have beaten it, I have even played through the second stage, but am totally stuck on stage 3, so I thought this would be a good time to play through the first two stages to get a little more practice in.. and I'm actually getting worse.... :C

Nice. Thanks for the info. The web of misinformation on the internet regarding classic games is a pain in the ass. It'd be nice if there was one reliable source for this shit.

Anyway, back to Psychosis, despite the tangled development where it turns out Naxat didn't even develop the Crush games, Psychosis does remind me a lot of those games as far as the art style and enemy design goes.

These past few months I've been playing through the first Cosmic Fantasy and just finally finished it the other night. From a gameplay standpoint it's extremely rough, but the story and characters kept me playing. I guess I found the premise of the hero crash landing on a planet and then proceeding to solve every single person's problems before finally taking down the big bad guy to be just what I wanted to play. Even the battle system had some interesting things going on, especially once you get Saya as your other party member. The thing that left me perplexed though was how in each "chapter" of the game you usually befriend a character who then follows your party around, but doesn't take part in battles! In all, it was a cool experience and it answered a lot of questions about who some of the characters are when they appear in CF2.

Just on a side note with regards to Cosmic Fantasy 3 since that's what started this topic. It was planned for a US release. However, Working Designs cancelled it in early 1994 due to the demise retail support for the Duo in the US.

Currently, I'm playing lots of Blazing Lazers. I'm also in the middle of reacquiring games from my dearly departed collection, as well as adding new ones. Even though I used to own Bravoman, I don't think I ever played it more than five minutes. I had completely forgotten about all the wacky text and characters ("I'm Japanese phone box"), so playing that again is fun. Also getting back into Bonk's Revenge, and when I can sit still long enough, I'm also working my way through my third or fourth playthrough of Neutopia (part II waits in the wings!).

Yeah I beat him on my first life and I don't consider myself very good at video games. A decent challenge for a final boss makes the game so much more rewarding to beat. Also a head that pops out of the grounds pretty lame. It's no where near as cool as a giant with f*cking chainsaw hands.

Yeah, Ninja Spirit is the jam. I'll play that one about once or twice a year. It's an excellent arcade conversion.

Just got done playing even more Blazing Lazers. Can't get enough of this game. The first half is deceptively easy; almost lulls me into a false sense of confidence before the latter half ramps up the difficulty. In spite of this, I still think the game has a very smooth increase in difficulty and the early levels make the game welcoming for new shooter fans, or those of us who generally stink at them (like me!).

Yeah, they're likely my favorite genre, but I'm pretty awful at almost all of them. I can hold my own at Ikaruga pretty well, which I'm quite proud of, and I'm decent at the Thunderforce series, but that's about it. Doesn't stop me from liking them though. I think mostly, I'm just not willing to put in the time to get great at any one game. I get too excited to play something else. Blazing Lazers is really coming along nicely though. Hope to complete it soon.


Also, just got Chew Man Fu in the mail today. I never owned this one back in the day, and it's mostly awesome. Fun little puzzle game concept that I haven't really seen anywhere else. Gonna see if my wife will play this with me later tonight.

I got Doraemon Meikyu (Cratermaze), and Peach Boy Katsugeki today. My original copy of Cratermaze has yet to be replaced, so I bought this one for fun while I wait for a reasonably-priced copy. It's just as fun as the US version and I like to see the different characters.

Now, as far I can tell from playing for about an hour, Peach Boy Katsugeki is pretty rad. In terms of gameplay, it's somewhat similar to Zelda II on the NES. However, I didn't realize just how much Japanese text there would be, and it's hindering my progress a little. Eventually, I'll be able to figure most things out from trial and error, like how pausing the game and choosing the second option grants me various amounts of additional HP (but why?). But I can't figure out at all what people are telling me in the town, so I sadly must pass them by and only use the "stores".

I do love that you can upgrade your weapon and the graphics are really nice -- super colorful like always, and the "demons" look hilarious. I also like that you can land on just about anyone's head and ride around on them, like in Doki Doki Panic/SMB 2. The jumping could be a little better, but you get used to it fairly quickly.

If any of you have this game and could translate or fill me in a little better, I'd be really grateful. I'm still gonna keep at it and figure out as much as I can. It's a really cool game and doesn't cost much at all.

Don't take that to mean they're very close, at all. There's no free-roaming overhead map and thus, none of Zelda II's semi-random overhead battle encounters, no magic (at least, that I can see so far!)... it's just the first game comparison I thought of, since both feature a sword (that shoots) and side-scrolling platforming. You can also increase your HP, upgrade your sword (oops, I guess I mentioned both of those already), and shop and talk to townsfolk. The overall vibe, thus far, just kinda reminds me of Zelda II. But on its own, it's still a really fun game so far.

I guess it's actually closer to a Wonder Boy game. It's cheap -- pick it up when you can.

I'm a big Wonder Boy fan and of action/adventure/platforming/rpg hybrids in general so it sounds like my kind of game. Zelda II is a very unique and IMO very underrated, there aren't many games quite like it.

Back to Katsugeki though I can't seem to find any info about it anywhere. It must be really obscure or I'm looking it up wrong.

Ya know, I've been thinking that too. I never paid it much mind, but it's pretty fun, in a mindless, silly sort of way. It's certainly leagues better than I remember it being the last time I played it.

Yeah I just completed it today. I didn't think much of it at first, but it gets better after the first few levels. The silly dialogue and cartoon style along with the gimmick of Bravoman extending his arm, legs and head(!) to attack elevate the game beyond average.

The ending is pretty funny, Dr. Bomb has my vote for most hilarious villain.

"Terrible" and "Tricky Kick" shouldn't even be together in the same sentence. OK, I know they weren't, but shouldn't be in adjacent sentences either.

Tricky Kick is a great game, with a killer soundtrack. Puts other games in this genre to shame (Boxyboy et al).

Played some more Bravoman and Cyber Core today. Bravoman is beginning to grow on me, but the size of the sprites coupled with the constant screen scrolling makes the game more difficult than need be. I find myself dropping into areas without any time to dodge enemies. Some of the hits seem kinda cheap too. Still, the guy's moveset is pretty cool for a straight, 2D side scroller and the wackiness simply never gets old. "Bravoman, would you like to eat?"

Cyber Core is also becoming more fun with each new game. That hitbox still seems pretty big, but being able to speed up on the fly helps a lot (I'm okay at level 3 speed, but 4 is almost uncontrollable for me!).

I have a pretty decent amount of US games coming in the mail soon, and I'll post here as those come in. My collection is growing pretty fast, but I'm mostly buying up inexpensive, mediocre titles right now. It's funny (or sad) that 80% of the TG16 HuCard library can be picked up for a "reasonable" amount, and then you pay more than double that just to nab that last 20%. I'm rocketing toward completing the 80% right now.

I was in need of some new turbo, so i traded a dude for gradius II.
can't say I enjoyed it very much, the music was good though.
my big 2 issues were that the ship speed seemed erratic, giving you no real control, and the hitbox seemed a little off on some things.

I have a love/hate relationship with Gradius II. I pick it up every once and awhile for a playthrough, but I usually mess up on the boss rush/final stage and then it's next to impossible to recover. I did clear it on normal once, but that was a long time ago.

Doraemon Meikyuu Daisakusen (Cratermaze). I really like this game. Each time I play it I start from the beginning, get into it for about a half hour, and then get called away to something else. Apparently this game doesn't give you your password until you die, so I haven't bothered finding the codes to pick up where I left off; I just start over again. The graphics are cool, the music is fun (if a little repetitive), and I don't really mind starting from the first stage again and again. It's really a fun little game. I want to pick up the US version for the different music. Anyone happen to know if the levels are identical between the two, not counting the different sprites?

Played a little Battle Royale and Silent Debuggers for the first time today. Battle Royale is what I kinda always figured it would be: a little rough around the edges, but still kinda fun in a mindless, button-mashing way. Silent Debuggers seems pretty rad, but I need to look through the manual and play it a few times to get a feel for how to play it. I like the old school FP RPG feel to it so far.

Gradius II arrived in the mail today (thanks bartre!) so I've been playing that some. 

For an SCD, it doesn't seem very optimized.  So much slowdown on the ice level.  Spriggan is just a normal CD game and I think it has screens with just as much stuff going on, yet it doesn't seem to slow down as much as this.  I wonder why... 

Still, it's a fun game so far!  Plenty challenging.  As soon as I die, it pretty much means I lose all my remaining lives nearly instantly.  I guess the trick is to shoot everything and avoid getting hit. :P

I find if I race through the game without building up some 1ups toward the beginning, I end up not having enough during the last couple segments. When I take the time, I end up whipping the boss rush and final boss with tons of lives to spare. Funny how that works. That last boss fight is total bull, though. Hate that guy.

I got in a bit of River City Random (Downtown Nekketsu) for last-time savoring before it goes to Hoobs via trade.  Good game, good game.  I hope I don't end up regretting it too much. 

You will regret this to the end of your life. 

Got in a bit of photograph boy on XmednefenPCE last night.  I really need to seek this out.  So fun!!

TurboStar - don't make me cry!!  I have to goto bed!  Hoobs made a pretty fair trade imo so I'll honor it ...

Photograph boy - I have the actual huey ... the game is tough!!  I'm not quick enough with my reflexes to snap the pics.. good game.. can be found for ~$75 if you are patient !

HOOBs - you can play RCR w/o Japanese knowledge.  though some of the stores/dialogues you'll be missing out the speech/details.  IT's classic RCR to the core.  beatup, collect coins, kick bosses' azz, etc.

Played Cyber-Core for a few tonight, got to stage 7 and it seems kind of on the easy side. Cyber-Core is a lot like Dragon Spirit with insects and I find it more enjoyable for some reason.

I played Blazing Lazers today for about an hour and made it to the level 1 boss in the boss run (it's kinda funny that they don't do them in order) and shortly thereafter met my demise.  Oh well.  I was playing pretty crummy throughout the game and hadn't raked up many of the flashing balls and didn't feel like continuing from the start of the level....  One of these days...

I think one of the reasons Blazing Lazers is so awesome is because it lures you in.  Powerups are plentiful, you can plow right through most of the game without much difficulty.  Then those last couple of levels really turn up the intensity and all of a sudden its really challenging.  But you always feel like you're so close.  I know I'll beat it again one of these days. :)

I started Dragon Slayer for the first time last night. I'm really impressed so far and like it quite a bit. The game itself has a bit of an (albeit shiny) 8-bit look to it, but there's something about that style that I really dig. The voice acting is pretty bad, but I guess it gets the point across. I can't believe I've never booted the game up before. A really nice hidden gem.

The voice acting is so hilarious I've recorded clips of it to where people couldn't believe this came from a commercially released game. It's terrible.

I'm not sure how hidden it is, among people who follow the Turbo it's pretty well known being only one of two US released traditional style J-RPGs.

Played Ghost Manor for about an hour tonight. I had never played it before, and from reviews and YouTube videos, I was kinda expecting the worst. You know, that first level is the main sucky one. After you get past that, it's still not great, but the levels are at least playable. I think I'm actually gonna try to spend some time with it. I'm acclimating myself to the absurd slippery slopes and annoying ammo limit already, so the game's definitely getting easier. With a little tweaking, this game could'a been a contender...

Got a short stack of games in today, so I played each of them a little: Tiger Road, Impossamole, Dead Moon, and Final Soldier.

Final Soldier is great! Man, I can't get enough of this one. I only made it to Stage 4 on my first credit, and then I started getting sloppy, but I'll get farther after a bit of practice. Great power-ups, good music, lots of action -- definitely going to become one of my favorite shooters. I know this game is related to Blazing Lazers (GunHed) somehow, and it makes perfect sense -- the graphics, music and control all feel really similar, in a good way.

Impossamole is exactly what I was expecting: a somewhat below-average platformer. All the complaints I've read seem accurate; crummy hit detection, awkward "bouncing" after getting hit, and less-than-stellar controls. Right off the bat, I don't like the rocks that fall from the ceiling; it seems that if the game gave you just a few more pixels worth of space before they shake loose and fall, you could actually use some strategy and skill in dodging them. As it stands, it seems like by the time you get close enough for one to fall, you're already too close and it's gonna hit you.

Tiger Road seems interesting. I seem to get hit by some enemies with no way around it. Maybe I just haven't figured out how to dodge effectively yet. I like the graphics though.

Dead Moon seems okay. I think I expected it to be better. Some of the power-ups feel kind of samey, and all the sprites are huge, so there's not a lot of room to maneuver. Enemies are kinda boring-looking, and the sounds are weak. Still, I did have fun playing through the first 3 levels before I switched it off to try another game. I looked in the manual, and it says there's only six stages. Unless the last few get really tough, I don't envision this game posing much of a challenge. I've definitely played worse shooters, but this one's not bowling me over.

Gonna get back to Final Soldier now.
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: nodtveidt on October 06, 2011, 11:14:05 AM
The first three stages of Dead Moon are pretty easy. Stage 4 is where things start to get really interesting. The difficulty ramps up quite a bit there too, and doesn't go back down. The final bosses are pretty cool. :D The difficulty ramping isn't akin to Violent Soldier, but there is a noticeable difficulty increase in Stage 4.

I just finished Turrican again (with 28 lives and 7 credits to spare... if you can't finish this game with at *least* these values, you're a scrub), and played through The Addams Family one more time. Magic Engine still crashes during its ending... something I reported 5 years ago. Grr.

Ha, that's almost exactly where I stopped. Guess they were just taking it easy on me, thus far.

Got Super Star Soldier and Psychosis in the mail today, so I previewed those for about an hour. Both great games! SSS is waayyy fast, compared to Blazing Lazers and Final Soldier. Enemies and bullets are just littering the screen. I already really like this game, but it's gonna be a while before I can remember where everything is.

Psychosis is great too, but in a totally different way. I like the graphics and music for sure. I don't much care for the sound effects, and the ship seems to move at a snail's pace! I'm not sure if there's a speed boost or power-up, but if there is, I haven't found it yet. Even so, I still really like the game, and the enemies are very interesting -- some are downright cool. The little "options" power-up is excellent, and I love how you can maneuver the two drones around your ship to block projectiles and enemies from different directions. Gets tough fast, especially with how slow your ship moves, but I'm into it for sure.

I officially have too many games to play now. Life is hard.  :P

I'm using a fighter (Keir), Dwarf (Tor), Cleric (Kerwin), and Elf (Larissa). I think in the past I didn't properly appreciate the magic side of this game.  The Sleep spell is essential early on.  And once your Cleric learns Cure Light Wounds, life is good.  Still, I've made more trips back to the temple to ressurect someone than I'd like to admit...  :oops:

I started watching this "Let's Play" series on Youtube a few days ago and his party is comprised of all magic users (an Elf, 2 Mages, and a Cleric) using a bug that allows the Mages to wear Chainmail.    If I had enough save space to keep 2 OotG save files, I'd give that a shot. 

I think I've made it pretty far into the Wolves Den so far; I'm exploring an underground city right now.  This game is too much fun.

Air Zonk again. Man, this game pisses me off sometimes (okay, most of the time). I'm playing on Spicy mode, and I keep getting to the boss rush in the 5th stage and then losing all of my lives. The football boss (that tears in half) and the flower boss need to die. The flower especially chews through a bunch of my lives.

I really like this game but sometimes there are just too many things going on onscreen for me to keep up with. And yes, I'm well aware that Air Zonk is one of the easier shooters on the TG16. I suck, sue me. Having to start over at the beginning of stage 5 every time I get my bell rung during the boss recap makes me end up turning the game off after a couple tries. It's especially frustrating as I can get all the way to that part without using a single continue, and then I just get whomped on.

Got the next couple days off from work so I'm gonna try to put a few hours into Cadash or (gasp!) Shining Force II.
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: nodtveidt on October 12, 2011, 08:01:15 PM
allyourblood, here's some pointers for those two bosses in Stage 5:

For the football boss... when the first form is going down, do a charge to drop a bomb. That way, when that punk comes up, you got damage already going. And a weapon normally comes out when the first form drops (usually boomerangs, which are quite useful for fighting the second form), so make sure to get it if you've got nothing. As for the rest of it... well, it's just timing mostly. Use your charge shot a lot, and make sure you time your movements carefully.

As for the flower boss, I think the first form is harder, since the second form is amazingly easy. For the first form, the circle shots that come out in a pattern are predictable, as they always come out after a few seconds. The snake-like thing that comes out of it is more of a worry, but all you need to do is move out of its way without getting hit by the other shots. It takes a little practice. Use the charge shot like crazy for the first form. For the second form, just stay on the opposite side of the screen... when you're on the left, use your charge shots, and when you're on the right, use charge bombs and rely on the backfire to take out the flowers it shoots at you.

Also, for any boss in the game, make use of the temporary invincibility when you come back from dying to inflict major damage on the boss with your body. Just move in for a second or so to get in a huge hit of damage, then back off. It works great.

Oh yeah... I just played through Bomberman, and three rounds of Populous (maps 1, 5, and 9). Good times. :D

Just finished Chapter 1 of Dragon Slayer. Took about 1:45. Fun game, but man there's a lot of grinding to be done. I basically just sat with my thumb on the I button for an hour as my characters leveled up and gained cash. When they were all at levels 9-10, I proceeded to destroy the bosses in under thirty seconds.

I like the story; though it's rather basic and the voice acting is hilarious. Nevertheless, I find myself wanting to trudge through it just to see what happens.

I played through a good chunk of Spriggan on Normal difficulty earlier.  Made it to the final boss (the purple-green guy) but he bested me.  I will be back!

I've previously beaten it on easy and was actually a little surprised at how far I made it on normal.  It's definitely within reach.  I'll give it another go soon.

allyourblood, here's some pointers for those two bosses in Stage 5:

Thanks, Rover! Yeah, I've been trying a few of those, but I'm beginning to think my problem is carelessness. I need to focus and stop guessing at where to move. I played again today and used up my last two lives on that flower guy again. I started the boss recap with 5 lives in reserve and lost 3 of them on the first boss alone -- I got there with just my standard weapon and he took a long time, so by the time I got to the flower guy I was already feeling frustrated.

I'll keep trying; eventually I'll get it down.

I've been going through some games that I've read aren't awesome:

- Andre Kickboxing is alright at best. If you want a fighting game there are way better games available
- Ballistix is awful. I can't aim my guy for shit and even if I could I have just about no control over the "puck"
- Unsurprisingly, Cybercore is a decent shooter but there are way better shooters on the system

CyberCore has an amazing soundtrack, and it's good fun to boot. It's not an amazing shooter all-around, but you could sure do a lot worse.

Been playing some Gomola Speed. It's different for sure, but not in a bad way. It's actually rather fun. Also played some Rastan Saga 2. The game isn't as bad as some people claim, IMHO, but it definitely could have been better. Sometimes it seems impossible to prevent being hit by some enemies as well as the traps like the flame throwers.

I got Legendary Axe II in today, so I played a few levels of that. It's really fun! I was surprised at just how well it controls, and so far, the enemies and bosses are pretty interesting. It's a little on the easy side so far, but I prefer that in platformers to TV-smashing-difficult. The sound effects are also really good, and the explosions that occur with every kill are very satisfying. Don't know why I waited so long to pick this one up.

I remember picking up Legendary Axe II way back in the early 90s and was very pleasantly surprised with it.
The level designs are pretty varied and interesting.  The bosses are great... however, the difficulty get pretty high on the last level... I got to the final boss a few times, but never beat it... one day I've got to fire it up again, but I doubt that I have the time or patience to beat it without savestates.

Playing my two newest game additions. Psychosis and Chase HQ. Psychosis... interesting shooter. Not one of the better ones, but has its charm. Finished the first world, got my fanny handed to me on the second. As for Chase HQ? I'm not sure what to think. Its got a cool element, but is definitely lacking in the execution. Haven't played the game on any other console, so perhaps its how the game is designed. Plan on giving it another go regardless.

Psychosis is pretty cool. Not as visually-arresting as BL, or SSS, but very unique and fun in its own right. Love the music and the satellites/options/whatevers. I also like that it has sort of a... creepy vibe. I'd love to see more mind-warping, or even outright horror-themed shooters.

Stupid question, how do I get that first tire? I punch the rat with it and it bounced away. Is that all I had to do? I couldn't advance farther right after that, but I could go back left. I didn't see the tire though?

That was tricky for me too the first time I got there...if I remember correctly, you have to push up or hold the II button (without turbo) depending on which setting you selected from the options menu to do a super jump off of the spring boards.

Once you know how to beat that boss, it's ridiculously easy.  Here's a video I did of that level and the boss fight starts around 1:50:

That level and the last level are really hard!  In my runthrough on Youtube, this is the only clip where I die.  :oops: I think one of the tricks to this game is to just keep moving. :)

So I recently took my Duo-R and assorted games up to the local anime con's game room.  Much to my delight it was a big hit.  There were players glued to it every time I had it out, from age 7 up to 50ish.  I don't have the largest library of titles but I did bring quite a few to choose from and much to my surprise by far the most popular was Pac Land.  On Saturday there was a large group of teens who couldn't get enough of it; they were texting their friends to describe "this weird game like Pac Man meets Mario", haha.  Bonk's Adventure, Ninja Spirit, R-Type, and Monster Lair were also big hits.  The 7-12 year old crowd seemed to prefer Monster Lair, and this one kid was much better at it than me.  I did get further than I had previously on R-Type, though!

You have to find the green florets sprinkled throughout the game. If you bonk or jump on them they will give you a blue heart which adds an extra heart to your heart meter. You can only have a maximum of five hearts, however.

Any advice?  I really want to get into this!

While i wait for your pointers, i am plowing away at Ys part 2.  Just got into Solomon Tower.  Cant wait to beat this!  Beatin part one last year was awesome- finally getting to spend the time to finish part two!  My fav game of all time for sure.  Used to play the sheit out of this too on Sega sms!

Have you played through Dungeon Explorer I first? You might want to do that to get acquainted with the gameplay first, as it's slightly more linear.

If you already have, then I'm not sure what more advice people might be able to give.

Don Doko Don needs to be played via both players to maximize the pleasure.  It is tough as there are a lot of unexpected enemy twist, etc.  but I think after a few re-runs, it gets better.  I'm liking it more and more.  Great hidden gem..  I personally discovered it myself early last year after trying a ROM image of it, then proceeded to track down a copy :)

Another one I highly recommend is PUZZLE BOY.  That game is awesome, obscure too.  I got a beatup copy for $5.  I like it so much I'm looking for a full complete copy to put in my perm. collection :)

Air Zonk is the one I'm playing of the 11 games I received yesterday. Graphics and Music are great, but I got to the last stage on my first play, where I got my ass kicked. The Turboviews guy was spot on when he said that was inconsistent difficulty. Also, the small Zonk power-up appears too much. Other than that, it is a really cool game, lived up to the hype for me.

Veigues! I have always had a soft spot for this game.

Different weapons help for different areas (the chest gun is useful at times! no joke! same goes for the power punch).

The "vernier" (hovering) is fun in Veigues. Most games would severely limit this ability, but Veigues has just the right balance (not too little/not too much).

TANGENT: In Karnov (NES), which, like Veigues, is under-appreciated, there were lots of different power-ups. Well, I love the WINGS that allowed you to fly in Karnov. Sure, there was a time limit in Karnov (in regard to flying), but both games achieved the proper balance (IMO).

I wish some of the boss fights were more inspired in Veigues, though.



Played some Batman over the last few days (wonderful game!), as well as a bit of Yo Bro. Gettin' busy 'round these parts with Christmas coming up, so I haven't had as much time to play as I'd like.

Yo' Bro, huh? If you are like me, you will greatly enhance your enjoyment if you play some of your own tunes instead of subjecting yourself to hours of weak PSG tunes. Honestly, the levels can take a long time to complete in Yo' Bro and even semi-decent music would have helped lessen the monotony.

The later levels are challenging, IMO, so don't pussyfoot around.

Word up.

Book II is an amazing step up over I, the story is much more detailed with a hell of a lot more dialogue and stuff to do and explore. I tore threw most of the game on my flights to and from New Jersey earlier this year and man what a way to spend time on a plane. :P I can't wait to get the TGCD copy I bought, as fun as it was playing on PSP, its always more fun to play on the older stuff. :)

I'm playing SonSon II right now, got it along with a ton of other games with my Duo-R last night and am loving it! Tough as nails and I'm making little progress but ach time I get a little farther, I'm sure I'd get even farther if I could figure out how to use the items. :P

It's been ages since I played through it, but that's partially because of all the random encounters I had to slog through to make it to the end.  I think bitd it turned me off RPGs in general for a bit at the time.  I *AM* glad I made it through to the ending, but I doubt I have the fortitude to do it again. :P

WARNING: massive brain dump ahead!

I've played a lot of fantastic games recently. I had to do some travel, so I brought along my Express and ended up playing a lot of Super Star Soldier. This is an awesome game! Stupidly hard. I guess I'll reveal that a suck at shooters and say it's only recently I could pass the first level without dying.

This week a bunch of PCE games I've never played finally arrived! I got Shubibinman 3, Art of Fighting, Fatal Fury Special, World Heros 2, Strider, Star Parodier, Legend of Xanadu, Anearth Fantasy Story, Space Invaders and Kaze Kiri. I haven't spent of ton of time playing them all yet, but...

Shubibinman 3—Holy shit! This game is awesome! Great graphics, great game play, awesome music - this game is just all around fantastic! I can't say enough about how cool I think this game is. The train scene was awesome, the suicide bombing boss was awesome (and he lived?!), and the music... so good!

Star Parodier—Talk about a game with charm! I absolutely love the announcer. I'm only kind of ashamed that I cycled through the characters repeatedly just so I could hear her declare "Paro Ceaser!", "PC Engine!" and "Bom-ber Man!" :D The game is super fun and just looks amazing. The music is, as always, incredible. A real treat, I can't believe I haven't played this before.

Space Invaders—OK, I have to admit that I'm a long time fan of this game. It was one of, if not the first video game I ever played. This version is really cool: there's an old school arcade mode that as best I can tell is the same (though I guess it's been a long time since I've played any variant of this game), and a "new" school mode where your ship has multiple hits and the graphics are better.

Kaze Kiri—Another great game! The controls here are deeper than I initially realized. Up left/up right causes your character to run. Up/Down plus button I causes your character to front or back flip and it appears your character is invincible while doing so. The graphics are very good, I really like the animation. The sound effects are some of the best I've heard on the Duo. I vaguely recall reading that the game is pretty easy, but I got my ass handed to me pretty quick (third level maybe?). I need to play more of this! :D

The Neo Geo fighters are all cool I guess. I haven't really played enough of of any of them to really formulate an opinion yet. Fatal Fury Special is my favorite, but honestly I probably prefer Kabuki Itoryoden to any of the Neo Geo fighters. At least so far, and I guess I should clarify I'm a SF2 whore.

I played a touch of Strider and wasn't really blown away. I'm wondering if turbo on button II isn't the best choice. Movement was slow and jumping seemed jenky to me. Then again, I played it once so my opinion isn't valid.

The RPG's I only watched the intros to. I'll track down walk throughs after playing some more of the other games I got.

TL;DR There are a lot of really good games that never made it to the US. Glad I'm getting a chance to play them now!

I have had a great time with the updated Space Invaders. Nice, solid little game with cute little touches.

Kaze Kiri, on the other hand, is boring. It fails at the most fundamental level: striking/killing your opponent should be a visceral experience. Instead, it feels insubstantial—as if your opponents are damp cardboard and deflated, wrinkled balloons. I like many I the bosses on Kaze Kiri, but they are  or enough to save the game. 

For the record, Kung Fu (NES) does a better job.

OK, I'll stop ranting now ;)

Fair enough! :) I'm the kind of person that will tell you that Riot Zone and Vigilante are must play titles. Make the main character a ninja, add in great graphics, sound, music and improve on the gameplay and I have a hard time not loving it. :D I haven't played much of it though, I suppose my opinion could change...

I think I have will have the first level of Double Dungeons forever etched into my memory.  It's a great game for shot bursts - good for travelling.  The later levels have some really bizarre monsters.  I've never beat it, and doubt I ever will, but I've always enjoys it.  It's a hoot with 2 people as well.

I beat the game back in the 90's but the later levels take so much time that when I got all but the last letter of the password needed for the final dungeon, I decided it would be shorter to use trial & error to enter the password than to actually play through the level and earn the last letter.

Is shapeshifter any good? I picked it up at a game shop but haven't gotten around to it. still trying to battle through the last crypt of Neutopia

Dude, it is so much fun. I have been playing it all day. Like Castlevania but you can morph into different creatures. Once you get through Neutopia it's recommended!

Shapeshifter is incredibly hard. At least, it was for me. Had to pop my disc into Magic Egnine and use save states to beat it.

Finally finished Vasteel this past week, only a few decades too late. Only ones I have left are Legend of Heroes 2 and Dungeon Master. (Waiting for Mysterious Song)

Anyone want to save me the time on Theron's Quest and just feed me the ending cinematic? Does anyone have a utility that opens up the files on a TG disc?

I played some Cyber Core on the Express last night.  Made it to the fourth level boss, which I thought wasn't too bad considering I was on the Express.  Now I want to play it on a TV some. :)

Cool rofl, Cyber Core is an underrated shmup IMHO. I play this one alot. I love the weapon power up system. Make sure to post your score in the high score thread. :)

Good idea!  I agree, it is underrated.  Probably because it doesn't have "Soldier" in the title.  And it's pretty hard.  There can be a lot of fast moving stuff on the screen.  But at least you can take a few hits before kicking the bucket.

Shape Shifter is pretty underrated, sadly. The game is quite good. Not perfect, but good. It is very Castlevaniaesque, so if you like platformers like that, then Shape Shifter should be given a go. Very cool stuff going on in the game. Especially since it isn't exactly an inexpensive game, you should play it because you paid for it!

Don't worry T2K I play all my games I don't just buy games to put them on my shelf, but I genrally don't like to start a game until I finish the game I'm playing currently. I'm a big fan of the Castlevania games, especially number 4 on the snes so I'll probably checkout shape shifters after Neutopia

Not only will you complete this game and experience supreme joy, but you may unlock some characters that you forgot about/never knew about! I don't want to spoil anything, so I'll leave it at that. :)

Agreed. Music really is quite good. Slowly drudging through as I just finished for the day after giving the Ora Stone to the false king. You can tell the game is meant for more than one player as it can get pretty hectic with a screen full of enemies all slamming you at one time. Quite a rush. :D

Finished Dungeon Explorer today as the fighter. Only found one extra playable character though, the Princess. Great game that truly holds well even against todays standards. Gonna run back through with a different character again at a later time hoping for something different. Currently Playing through Cratermaze again. Not a bad game, not a great one either. Still fun to play through once every few years or so... :wink:

Indeed (robots are always awesome), though it's a lot easier to do in Dungeon Explorer II.  Mishran should instead try finding the Harmet/Hermit/Hairnet.  :)

Post by: roflmao on January 04, 2012, 02:25:38 AM
I had no idea you could unlock more than just the Princess.  How does that happen?  Do you just beat the game with different characters? 

I think I've only beaten the game using the DEBDE DEBDA cheat code - does that affect unlocking characters? 

One more question... Once you've unlocked a character, I'm assuming you lose it once you turn the game off, so you'd have to play through it multiple times in one sitting?  Yeesh.

Besides the Princess, the Hermit is the only other playable character.  Start playing as the Bard and visit the Hermit's empty house (don't go before you have at least 50hp); you'll be 'challenged' (hp drained) and if you survive, you'll be transformed from a weakling hippie douche into the mighty Hermit.

Remember hearing about the Hermit from the woman who lives by the house, but it didn't give any clues as to how to get him, so I'd assume that it was meant to be a trial and error thing. :-k

So the Princess and Hermit are the only hidden playable characters? Nuts...

Pac-Land Done. As you can see from my High Score I used many, many continues. LOL

Commentary:

Stage 02: Ahhhhh so you can press jump multiple times on springboards to gain distance , it has only took me 22 years to work this out.  Dam you manual;-)

Stage 14: Still going for it

Stage 23: Ready to go back to Dead Moon now

Stage 27: Nice night background

Stage 29: How long and and how many lives does it take one man to jump on a plane to get across a river!

10mins later ......

20mins later ......

25mins later Ahhhh I see now.

30mins God dam need to get across the other part of the river now......

40mins Mmmm done it!

Level 30: How many more of these stages are there? enough already.

Level 32: After 2hrs and what feels like 1500 lives I can see the other end of the water, just one more jump....

#!£*^$£^*&*$%£

GOD DAM IT!

3hrs and buckets full of more lives .... That's it the end :@)

What Pro mode ..... No, no and no why on earth would I want to do this all over again?  LOL

Absolutely one of the best soundtracks of ANY video game of all time, IMHO.

Yes, I know that is a lavish, bold, ridiculous claim, but I stand by it.

And I'm including all soundtracks, not simply chiptune-based ones, in that pool of contestants.



Bravoman! It's... different.

Bravoman has never been able to hold my interest. In the mid-to-late 90's, I can't believe I bought Bravoman instead of, say, the HuCards that have become very valuable. I bought Deep Blue and Shockman and Bravoman and Air Zonk instead of Magical Chase and Bonk 3 and Dynastic Hero.

Anyway, I'm going to have to give Bravoman a second (or is it nineteenth?) chance. Every few years I want to like the game. Maybe I'll be able to find some enjoyment in it this winter as I lick bitter tears from my lips.

So I played some:
Sapphire, Spriggan, Star Parodier, Super Star Soldier, Space Harrier, Soldier Blade (lots of games that start with "S"!) and Alien Crush.

This morning I played Air Zonk.  I made it to the final boss (I think - looks like a robot King Drool, after the gangster looking Drool and his 2 cronies).  But he bested me and I had to get to work.  Awesome game.

Quite happy at this as I never beat it back in the day when I had the DOS version.

Just finished Neutopia 2. Very, very, good game. I thought I picked up all the available items throughout the game, but I have an empty spot between the boomerang and the bell. Can anyone tell me what I might have missed? Not a big deal, as I could easily go back to the spot where it can be obtained, but don't think I'll bother.

I recently played through Crest of Wolf (Riot Zone).  By myself.  Because there's no 2-player option.  Which makes me sad.

A also tried to 1cc Final Soldier and made it to the final boss, but ran out of lives. :(  I think I made it to the final level without losing a life, but the difficulty really ramps up on that level!

Also played some Cotton (I don't know how you guys are able to make it through 2 plays of this game - I can't make it through 1) and some Monster Lair.

Been playing through a few Turbo games lately.

Finished Psychosis which I think is a very average shooter. The premise is interesting, but the game never seems to be anything but mediocre. The weapons are boring, the enemies are uninteresting and besides some parallax scrolling the graphics are uninspired. It's also very difficult to recover after losing a life due to a lack of power-ups and very slow moving ship.

Also finished Fantasy Zone. Never played past the first 3 stages in this game before shutting it off before, but I gave the game a chance and played through the rest of the game. I like the colorful worlds and boss designs, but the game is a little on the simple side, not to mention short. Still its kind of fun to pick up and play.

A also tried to 1cc Final Soldier and made it to the final boss, but ran out of lives. :(  I think I made it to the final level without losing a life, but the difficulty really ramps up on that level!

Yeah, I think the game is easy, but the last boss can be a challenge especially if you lose your weapons. The E weapon seems to work best if you can keep it at full power for your last confrontation with the boss.

Well, I did find some of the earlier puzzles somewhat fun and I like the way it saves high scores too so it's good way to test one self later on but the repetitive nature of the game does get overly tedious after only a few plays so it's not one I come back to very often.

Crap. I had this game years ago. It had scrapes/gouges/nicks (on the silkscreened side?, not the side the laser reads) on the data track(s)) because it would not play properly. I gave it to a friend who said he would find a way to solve it.

He leaves Hellfire S in a TACO BELL along with a bunch of his music CD's. I am with him at the time. I still remember enjoying that 7-layer burrito (mmmmmm...) around 8 or 9 years ago. We leave store. Ooooops! We forgot the discs. We go back inside. Someone swiped all the stuff in 1.5 minutes we were gone.

I think it depends on the difficulty setting the arcade owner set for Raiden. I don't remember the arcade being easier, even a little.

However, I have yet to beat either the HuCard or CD versions of Raiden, so I consider it a challenging game! I choke on certain bosses and slide right into bullet streams. Very sad. I've gotten (many times) to the final boss on the HuCard, but my utter lack of strategy demoralized me.

DO NOT THINK that the final stage in Blazing Lazers is impossible with zero firepower. FAR FROM IT.

The last stage in Blazing Lazers is totally passable, even if you were to start with a pea shooter (no power-ups).

The "secret" is to adjust your speed as an offensive/defensive strategy:

(1) BE AGGRESSIVE when you can! MAX speed to take out the alternating waves on left and right. You'll be surprised how much area you can cover with MAX speed + pea shooter.

(2) KNOW YOUR LIMITS: REDUCE speed when you have to carefully dodge stuff in certain segments (i.e. the enemies that home-in on you...they are a little tricky if you are at the wrong speed).

(3) Slowly, you WILL get some gels and elevate above the mere pea-shooter.

I've been a broken-record about SPEED+PEA SHOOTER in Blazing Lazers (http://www.pcenginefx.com/forums/index.php?topic=576.msg2209#msg2209), but I'd like to think I'm inspiring hope. (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcds.png)

I've always disliked how long Blazing Lasers is and how easy it is until you get to the final level. Basically 40 minutes of mindless flying if you have a shield and are semi careful then it gets crazy. One of these days I'll syke myself up enough to play it again and try Estebans pea shooter trick if I need to.

Have been playing a lot of Rayxanber 2. Have beat it a dozen times now trying to 1cc it. Have made it to the final boss 2 times now on my first credit and have lost then get down to the pea shooter and he's too hard for me to beat like that. One of these times it's bound to happen!

Have been playing a lot of Rayxanber 2. Have beat it a dozen times now trying to 1cc it. Have made it to the final boss 2 times now on my first credit and have lost then get down to the pea shooter and he's too hard for me to beat like that. One of these times it's bound to happen!

Man, you guys are good at shooters!! I can't even pass the first stage on Rayzanber 2!

I hear you. But I can't help but comment on the price:entertainment ratio when discussing games. (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcds.png) I also include the quality of the soundtrack (since I spend more time listening to game music than actually playing games these days) in my equation.

But, in an effort to make the world a better place, how about this:

BlueBMW (and others):

1. Is Sylphia as engaging as (a) Avenger or (b) Ballistix?

2. How is the Sylphia soundtrack?

Thanks in advance.

Disclaimer: I will not be getting Sylphia for a long, long time. If ever.

The screenshots, unfortunately, do not reveal how poorly executed the game is (controls, screen scrolling, battles = cumbersome).

I'm still amazed that folks here have played more than a few minutes of it.

That said, I never let little things like that prevent me from investing hours and hours into a game. I will play Energy and make significant progress in it. (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

I think it is worth getting this game for several reasons:

(1) it is cheap
(2) the cover art alone is worth the price of admission
(3) you experience first-hand what everyone has described as a sad, sad PCE game.
(4) you, like me, will be determined to squeeze every bit of entertainment out of the game
(5) you, like me, are a goddamn masochist

I spent a good chunk of this evening playing Final Lap Twin.  The recent raffle got me reminiscing about the last time I played through it and realized it was over 10 years ago.  And it feels like just yesterday.  My 8 and 16 bit racing game experience doesn't cover a lot of games, but I still think this hold up pretty well as one of the better ones.  IMO, it's up there with F-Zero and Mario Kart for the SNES.  And it's an RPG! Sweet!

Were there any other Namco titles brought over to the states?  I'm not near my collection to see if I have any others.  And is there a reason they are called "Namcot" in the game?  I always assumed they were Namco, but could never reason why they added the "t".

The grafx are great!  A little on the dark side, but you have to remember the game is from 1989.  Most of the population was sitting around playing the brand-new Dragon Warrior.

Namco = arcade games and Namcot = home games; just to keep the divisions separate and distinct, I suppose.

Indeed, the grafx were "inspired" by Gauntlet and ARPG's of the period...plus, you had to support five players simultaneously without breaking the enjoyment! DE & DE II have superior grafx (IMHO) than the Sega-CD version of DE. I AM GRATEFUL that Hudson did not make PCE DE II like the one they offered Sega's audience. On the surface, the Sega-CD version has superior graphics...and gameplay...but the game ends up missing something essential.

Lots: Splatterhouse, Samurai Ghost, World Court Tennis, Pac-Land, Galaga 90, Ordyne, Bravoman, Dragon Spirit, etc.

Most of the real stinkers never left Japan, but we did get World Court Tennis, Ordyne, and Bravoman. And personally, I don't think Dragon Spirit is anything to write home about.

I'm A little confused.Dungeon Explorer II came out in 1989?,or are you referring to the first one?.The graphics are A mixed bag,its good in some areas,but dark and drab others.I do like the game.My favorite character is the little dwarf guy that throws the axes.If I could only find three,four other people to play the game with. :)

Currently playing SideArms and Dungeon explorer until my PC Engine Duo gets here and I can finally start Dragon Slayer.

In SideArms, I can make it to the 6th stage before dying (as a kid, I remember beating the game).

I've beaten Dungeon Explorer with the Fighter, Theif, Warlock, Elf, and Princess. Working on the Witch right now. Looking to finish the game with all 10 characters

Mostly Street Fighter II. That game is just boss : 8)

Also, occasionally Pac-Land. I can get to Stage 16 before dying.

And also just got a new Turbo Stick. Very disappointing. Horrible for shmups(tough to pull of diagonal movement), and can't pull of Ryu's shoryukens :cry:

Dragon Spirit is great! Do you not like the game in general or do you not like the PCE port?

Both. The game itself, as originally designed for the arcade, is not all that good to begin with. It's just... not very fun. Huge hitbox, poorly designed stages, etc... The Turbo port further mars things with decidedly poor visuals. The Turbo port could have been much, much better. The instrumentation on Dragon Spirit (Turbo version) is pretty good, but the musical compositions don't excite me.

The followup, Dragon Saber, addresses virtually all of these issues with superior stage design, no long boring stretches, smoother gameplay that doesn't make the big hitbox as much of an issue, and superior visuals. Also, more interesting compositions.

And also just got a new Turbo Stick. Very disappointing. Horrible for shmups(tough to pull of diagonal movement), and can't pull of Ryu's shoryukens :cry:

The U.S. TurboStick (which I'm assuming is the version you bought) is an "economy" version of the JP TurboStick. The JP original is bottom-weighted which makes controlling with it much, much better. It's otherwise almost virtually identical except for color and the size of the connector. It's amazing how much difference that bottom-weight makes, though.

Well, that explains it! Our views on Dragon Spirit (arcade version or otherwise) are diametrically opposed (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png).

This actually is a good thing to find out, because now I understand where you are coming from.


I won't try* to sway your opinion (since you are repulsed by Dragon Spirit (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgsad.png)), but here's my scoop on the Spirit vs. Saber:

*I will try to sway other folks here on the forums, though. I can't let them think that Saber is the better game! (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

(1) Perhaps a bit sluggish when directly compared to Saber, Dragon Spirit totally holds its own. Dragon Spirit is a solid game in the arcade and the PCE version is solid. I mean solid. Hit box? It's fine! You gotta have skills! You gotta dodge! I think the trend toward smaller (1 pixel!) hitboxes over the past 15+ years is sad. We need some gargantuan hitboxes that require skillz (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png).

(1 1/4) I'll grant you that there are segments of Dragon Spirit where the action slows down, but this isn't necessarily a problem: it's nice to have a respite to take a deep breath before the action heats up again. I like the air and ground enemies that must be destroyed (I wipe out every last one, I hate it when I miss a ground enemy). It keeps things interesting. Cyber Core copied this to its benefit. Now, since I like to listen to the music in Dragon Spirit whilst playing, I don't put up the turbo switches and hold down the I & II buttons for the whole game. I don't use turbo and I give my thumb a break whenever I can. I think this is an important consideration (thumb fatigue) that I did not even consider in the other thread (about arcade ports on consoles and how lame it is to exploit rapid-fire unless the arcade featured it as a standard function). I don't expect everyone to agree with my philosophy, but I enjoy it (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png).

(1.6) The only thing that is maddening about Spirit is that the SHITTY SFX (air-to-ground bombs) have priority over the soundtrack, IRREPARABLY ruining the many glorious PSG tunes in the game. Not all the songs are great, mind you, but a majority are. SFX should NEVER have priority over soundtrack, IMO. I know you aren't a big fan of the soundtrack. This makes me sad (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgsad.png)

(2) So, Dragon Saber is NOT superior to Spirit. Saber features mosquitoes. Where are the dragons? Now, Saber has some slick! graphical effects with the background (i.e. the earth ripping open and exposing lava!) which really WOWS! the player and makes Spirit's stages appear static and dull. THIS IS A LIE. Saber's stages are not fundamentally better (design or otherwise) when it comes to challenge and enjoyment. And isn't this the most important thing? Dragon Spirit provides an entertaining romp that is not inherently weaker than Saber.

(3.5) It's true, Saber has slicker graphics (for the levels/stages), but the mosquito-sized sprites in the game totally negate this improvement!

(4) The music in Saber is mild at best. Spirit's music is extra spicy. I prefer the latter.

(5) Having said all of this, I enjoy both games. I just have to defend Spirit's honor. (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

I was always wondering about the difference(s) between the US and Japanese Sticks, thanks for the scoop. (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

The NES Advantage had a decent bottom-weight and really felt solid. I haven't used one since I was a kid (late 80's), but the TurboStick felt so flimsy and insubstantial compared to the NES Advantage.

You probably are referring to the "Arcade Mode" available on the HuCARD...one-hit death. But, if you are referring to the actual arcade game, well, I've always wanted to compare them to see how good/bad the PCE port was.   (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

No, we actually share common ground when it comes to CyberCore's soundtrack: it seems we both enjoy it!!  (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

In a recent thread (disco PSG tunes?), I rated the different songs in CyberCore...http://junk.tg-16.com/audio/Cyber_Core/Title_Screen.mp3
, http://junk.tg-16.com/audio/Cyber_Core/Level_1.mp3
and http://junk.tg-16.com/audio/Cyber_Core/Level_8.mp3
are my faves.  (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

The way the title screen music changes to the stage 1 tune as the guy turns into the insect creature is just undeniably awesome.

Man Cadash is a lot of fun. I love that the TG version had all 4 characters. I have only beat it with the Ninja, guess I know what Im gonna do tonight, try and beat with a different character. I will honestly admit though I do prefer the color palette a little better on the Genesis version.

Completed Bonanza Bros. over the weekend and have now moved onto Legendary Axe.

I also still need to complete Dungeon Explorer.  Got a little board at stage 12 as it does not cut the mustard in single plater mode for me.   That reminds me I also have Neutopia to finish amongst others ;-)

Man I have yet to finish Dungeon Explorer or Neutopia myself.

I though the priest was pretty easy myself. The fact that you can heal and your weapon has good range makes the game a cake walk after some level grinding.

Wonderboy 3/Monster Lair is long, and brutal. I'd say it's a runner-up for the "Duomazov Measure of a Turbo Bad-Ass" game list.

I have only beaten it once, and I was significantly buzzed/drunk at the time. True story. Not so intoxicated that my reflexes were severely impaired (obviously), just enough that I was a little "looser" than normal and just enough that my memory of the event is a bit foggy.

I've been unable to duplicate the event in a sober state.

If you get lucky with the power-up weapon (fire or missiles), then it makes most bosses a joke. I simply collect every single power-up, though, with no intention of "planning" specific weapons for specific bosses. It keeps me on my toes, for sure, but it can backfire (I lose life/die).

I do the same thing with the power ups. for the boss I usually try to hold on to a missile power up near the end of the stage, then I'll turn up the Turbo switchs sit right next to him and spam bomb him to death. Tanks for the soundtrack too.

Is this the last level? Even with a pea-shooter, set your speed to MAX, close your eyes, and just mash the direction pad and buttons.  (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

Currently playing:
Pyramid Plunder (an old build). This is fun, but it starts off way too slow...I wish I could jump to the more challenging levels. I love the "speedy" run. I recall folks setting the turbo switch in the middle to pick up items and "half-run"...while this technique may work, I think it is cheesy to play in such a manner. I'm not trying to start a fight, but there is a beauty to playing Pyramid Power with no autofire.

Valis III Goddamn, I forgot how much I enjoy this game. I bought it when it was originally released for TG-CD...and every few years I revisit it. Damn, I know many folks don't get too excited about the Valis series, but Valis III on PCE is a treat. I played the Genesis version back when it was released, but I never gave a thorough side-by-side comparison of the two games. ALSO: I want to revisit Syd of Valis (SD Valis) because I wasn't too impressed with it back in the day, but I might be more forgiving now.  (http://junk.tg-16.com/images/pcgs.png)

Mystic Formula I only spent a few minutes playing this, trying the different characters, watching the cinemas...but I'm hopeful that this game will be fun. The gameplay did not immediately "wow" me...but it already seems more competent than Final Zone II (and I was able to squeeze fun out of that sub-standard game), so <fingers crossed>

I have tried this a few times. I can't manage to dodge his attacks long enough to get him to flee and I end up getting killed.

I've tried shooting off his two sides and then waiting in the upper corner. He does eventually leave, but I don't get the bonus. I'm guessing you have to leave him intact or not hit him at all. My problem ends up being the crap flying around everywhere, especially when he corners you and leaves you no space to move.

Anyway...Stage 9 is making me want to kick a puppy. I have gotten there about 6 times this week, usually still on my first credit, and that part right after the tank boss gets me nearly every time. The few times I've gotten through it, then the triangle boss again, I get wrecked on the next part.

Sigh...

I'm pretty sure I've seen a video on You Tube showing someone avoiding the first boss for the bonus.  You might be able to see his pattern there.  Also, I think the avoid-boss bonus applies to every odd-level in the game (1st, 3rd, 5th, etc) though I could be wrong.

In Blazing Lazers there are some powerup spheres that cycle through different powerups (I-IV or the different 2nd tier abilities).  Whe you shoot them they stop cycling for a moment.  If you shoot them a ton, they will eventually start flashing and moving back towards the top of the screen. If you pick them up when they are flashing like that, then your ship starts off in the same spot as where you died.  

Anyways, I'm sort of playing Final Lap Twin. Unique game, but I can't even win any races LOL

Well at least when you lose you still end up getting more money.  :)  After a couple of upgrades and some track memorization, you should be able to whip through most of the random battles pretty easily.  The bosses can be pretty tricky, though, if I remember correctly. I started playing through this again a few months ago and really enjoyed it, but moved on to something else after about the second boss.  I'll have to pick it up again.  I hate those passwords....

Blazing Lazers is know as one of the easier shoot 'em ups on the system there's 9 stages and shit goes down on the 9 stage. Don't be discouraged though memorizing patterns through several playthrough will get you further in, and make sure you pick up the shield It makes things easy.

A nearly maxed out weapon III + homing missiles ended up doing the trick on stage 9 where I was having so much trouble. After how rough this level was, the boss fight didn't end up being too bad and I got through on my first attempt.

I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I like shooters but I'm not very good at 'em and could probably count all the turbob shmups I've cleared on one hand. As frustrating as this one got, I just couldn't stop playing it, and it was a satisfying clear.

Now I can finally move on. Yay.  :D

Playing through this one really reminded me of The Guardian Legend, which I own for the NES, and loved as a kid but have not played through in many years. You can definitely see the similarities in the two games, especially the eyeball mid-boss and the stage 8 skull boss with the eyes. I think I recognized some of the sound effects too. I understand Compile developed both games, which would explain the similarities.

Congratulations! I loved how graceful (and unexpected!) the final boss "lady" was....the world needs more games with elegance like that!

Yep, definitely! It was kind of a nice touch after such a hellish level. The very final part was a little frantic though.

Any recommendations on US shmups with comparable difficulty? Sadly I've got a bunch of TG and PCE hueys that have been neglected since I bought them, but now that I have some more time I plan on finally giving them a go. With the exception of Deep Blue and Sinistron, I think I've got every other US shooter (some are PCE versions though). I'd like to work my way up in difficulty.

Playing through this one really reminded me of The Guardian Legend, which I own for the NES, and loved as a kid but have not played through in many years. You can definitely see the similarities in the two games, especially the eyeball mid-boss and the stage 8 skull boss with the eyes. I think I recognized some of the sound effects too. I understand Compile developed both games, which would explain the similarities.

Congratulations! I loved how graceful (and unexpected!) the final boss "lady" was....the world needs more games with elegance like that!

Yep, definitely! It was kind of a nice touch after such a hellish level. The very final part was a little frantic though.

Cyber Core is another game that eases you through the first few levels like Blazing Lazers, but then gets hectic later on around stage 5 or 6. It's a very underrated game IMO. I love the bug theme power-ups. :)

I definitely remember Cyber Core being one that I liked and probably gave up on way too quickly. I think I'd bought a bunch of PCE games at the same time as this, which didn't help. I will pop this one in in the next day or two. Thanks!

I busted out Psychosis again last night and played for a good while. Only the second time I've played the game, and I'm glad I went back to it. The music's sorta annoying, but in a good way. It fits the whole theme of the game pretty well. I love the effect of the power-ups bursting in from "behind" the screen, and the enemies are just f*cked up. Also in a good way.

The game's not "great", by any means, but it is one of the most unique shmups I've played; especially thematically.

Yes, I agree that Psychosis has a lot of personality—if only the game itself were better!

At the very least: Psychosis > Bravoman's horizontal shoot-em-up

I logged more time on Impossamole today than ever before (about an hour). The bad hit detection reminds me of Legendary Axe. While LA overcame this flaw by keeping the onscreen enemies to a minimum and giving them predicable attack patterns, the enemies in Impossamole are limitless, fast, and mostly unavoidable.  Were it not for the shitty hit detection and relentless baddies, Impossamole would be a good game.  The music and grafx are solid, the play control is good as far as jumping and moving are concerned, there's plenty to explore, and they even put in a cute little intro. Reading the manual, I was happy to learn that stages can be played in any order by pressing the select button, allowing players to reach an impasse on ALL of the stages before permanently shelving the game. In all seriousness though, I have a new respect for poor old Monty and beating the first level was kind of fun.

Also played Space Harrier, Legendary Axe, and Outrun on "hard" for the first time.

Definitely one of my favorites! :D For that boss I have the easiest time using powered up bombs. Honestly, unless there are a shit ton of projectiles coming my way, I find the powered up bomb to be the best weapon.
Title: Re: What Turbo game are you currently playing?
Post by: roflmao on May 01, 2012, 01:11:46 PM
Yeah, I use the bomb weapon for all the bosses.  I find each of the other weapons is handy for different levels.  The sword is great for the first and second level, the grappling hook is good for the cliff climbing level, and the ninja stars are what I use for the   second to last level.  The bombs get full time duty on the last level and on the indoors level with those guys with the grappling hooks.  Oh I used to hate those guys...

If you ever get stuck, you can watch a playthrough I put on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLECCBEB9F498CF3AF&feature=plcp  It's not a perfect run ( I think I died twice...) but you can see how I got through the levels (what weapons I used) and how I defeated the bosses.  Others probably have different techniques, though.

EDIT: Today I've been playing Kyukyoku Tiger via Ootake trying to find a good way to record gameplay via emulator.  This game is too much fun. There's so much stuff on the screen trying to kill you!

Great games, and interesting idea to stagger in Dragon's Curse. I tend to find myself losing steam and hardly wanting to finish about 2/3 of the way through Ys2 when I play them in succession. Dragon's Curse would make a nice diversion and probably Ys seems fresh again after that.

R-Type
Reminiscent rant:

Back in my college days I rented a house with a bunch of high school friends and one of my housemates would come into my room every night to play R-Type on my TG-16.  This went on for months and he eventually made it to the last level (farther than I ever did, and ever will) and eventually gave up.  I think beer and Bomberman won him over, but it was awesome to see what the later levels looked like, as I never had the patience to get as far as he did.

You are referring, of course, to Hatris.

Speaking of Hatris, I firmly believe that if all of its art assests were re-purposed as a Galaga clone, I would absolutely LOVE the result.

On the flip side, I am not sure if R-Type's art assets would make for a good Tetris clone...

I have beaten Impossamole many times and there is an odd sense of gratification that percolates through your flesh upon finishing the game. Sadly, though, it is not nearly as gratifying as it should be.

I kind of wish there was a debug mode where you could just play the bosses, or, for me, the final boss: the only reason I kept playing Impossamole was because I wanted to see the final boss again. The battle is pretty standard, but it was fun to see a "huge" oppononent that didn't fit on the screen. Granted, the character design of the final boss is basic (not nearly as interesting, detailed or animated like Jagu from Legendary Axe), but it was a small drill in a no-frills platformer.

I agree that this had the potential to be an OK game, but I would have wanted vastly more interesting character designs for the enemies!!! The enemies were not nearly as captivating, as, say, Hatris. I'm serious. The derbies and berets in Hatris are more alluring.

Impossamole could have been a charming little game.

I may be nuts, but I still like Impossamole. Yeah, there are a lot of things about it that suck, but I learned to "play around" those things. It got to the point where I'd adjust my gameplay to the quirks of the game and eventually finished it. It wasn't easy, but it worked.

And that music...dear god...

Speaking of Victory Run, I played a bit of Chase HQ the other night. First time I'd ever played the Turbo version. It reminds me of Victory Run in terms of perspective, but it's a lot faster and more exciting. That said, the trade-off seems to be that it doesn't run very smoothly and the gameplay is extremely repetitive. I suppose that's to be expected from an arcade racer from the late 80s, though.

Your review kind of missed the point. Victory Run looks and feels like a standard racer, but it calls for a completely different driving strategy than Outrun or Rad Racer:

Played a bit of a bunch of games in the past few weeks. New Zealand Story is super charming, reminds me of Parasol Stars. Momotaro Katsugeki is neat, but I won't pretend I got terribly far in it. Flash Hiders is pretty, but I haven't figured out the moves yet. I was under the impression that it's basically like SF2 (and Kabuki Itoryuden), but I had a *way* easier time figuring out Kabuki than Flash Hiders. I probably should try all the characters and maybe look at the manual. Also played a bit of Coryoon. It's cool, I think I prefer Air Zonk to it though. Enemy shots seem to blend into the background and I constantly get tagged. Also, finally got back into LoX last night, excited to finish up the first area this weekend!

I didn't wanna just have my TurboExpress sitting there for another half a decade doing nothing after having gone to the trouble of to make it functional again, so I grabbed "Dragon Spirit" and gave it a whirl! Entered the code for 100 continues and managed to beat it in a couple of hours. Last stages were pretty tough at times, but I eventually plowed through victoriously (eh, with a quite a bit of continues, but who keeps count of that sort of thing, right fellas? Hehe!)! I noticed the ending text was pretty badly translated, which kinda surprised me - I didn't remember that, I probably didn't care to read it thoroughly as a kid...

Over the last few weeks, I beat Ys Books 1 and 2, and yesterday, I beat Exile. Exile was a fun game, but overall it was uninspiring, storywise. Not currently playing anything on the TG at the moment (besides having to get back into Cosmic Fantasy 2). I hooked up my jvc x'eye again and have been playing random Genesis games, and played a level in Popful Mail for sega cd.

Just finished up original Bomberman.  Still have to get a copy of 93 and/or 94.  Hmmm, maybe I'll do some Bonk 2 next.  And I'm never not playing Lords of Thunder.

Got Cratermaze in the mail, popped it in and played through it in one sitting. It was really fun for the first 30 levels, but after that I got quite bored of it. Then levels all look very similar, the game uses two enemy the entire game and the music was very forgetable. On the other hand the core gameplay it quite fun and it controls perfectly. So in all I found it a bit mediocre

maybe with the Doraemon characters in the JP version it helps to dampen the boredom a bit further...

Picked up Ys Book 1 & 2 over the weekend and have been playing evey chance I get. Getting ready to enter Darm Tower... this game is really fun and surprisingly addictive. For some reason, I love running into enemies to damage them. Didn't think I'd like that style of combat

Been playing Ninja Spirit on arcade mode the last couple days and finally cleared it. Level 3 and the final boss were BRUTAL. I can't believe how much harder this game is with one-hit deaths.

Also, I swear that there are more baddies in arcade mode.

I have been playing Blazing Lasers.  I just got it last week.  I've wanted it for so long but I never got it for whatever reason.  I got a good deal though :)

Hell yeah, the level 6 music is rockin. I've been trying to play through it myself, it's a tricky game.

Agreed.  I'm pretty sure I was able to beat it back when I was in high school (I was a nut for shooters back in the early '90s and this system fit the bill) but I haven't been able to beat recently.  I think my prime shooter days are far behind me. :)
