One Credit Contest #23: Galaga (Arcade)

Post by mushroom » Thu Nov 22, 2018 8:52 pm

Hello and welcome to the One Credit Contest!! It's a competition to see who can get the farthest in a game on a single credit. Our game this week, chosen by Booyakasha, is Galaga, arcade version!

Image

The rules:

-Arcade version only. Any original, non-bootleg, non-romhack version is acceptable (including any 20th anniversary Ms. Pac-Man combo versions, etc.)
-Default settings. No fast bullets or anything. Autofire is fine.
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable

Simply post your score in the following form:

Code: Select all

Name - Stage - Score
A screen shot is optional. Just don't cheat. There's not a lot at stake here :P

I will maintain a leader board in this post, and about two weeks from now the winner will be decided. Progress is determined by stage reached, then score. The winner gets to choose our next game.

As always, simply participating will add to your overall rank! So even if you don't think you have a chance at the top, be sure to get an entry or two in!

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. Marilink (level 5) - Stage 16 - 92,670
2. mushroom (level 11) - Stage 12 - 86,170
3. Booyakasha (level 1) - Stage 8 - 41,730
4. Valigarmander (level 9) - Stage 7 - 42,770
5. Kat (level 2) - Stage 5 - 19,920
6. IRHP (level 3) - Stage 2 - 7,470
You may post new scores as often as you wish. Have fun!

P.S. If anyone has any trouble obtaining or running the game, please let me know! I will be glad to help!

IRHP - 3180 - Stage 1

Well, I remember liking it more in arcades. Keyboard isn't really a good controller method for this game either. I only gave it one half-assed attempt, might try again later.

Two weeks is a bit steep if people *cough*me*cough* suck at the week's current game.

I’d prefer two week time frames, for what it’s worth. The concept will remain fresher longer

^Post a 'Galaga' score, homey. You must have a ROM hanging around, some 'Namco 25th Anniversary' disc or cart sittin about stinking up the joint. Don't make me beg.

I’ll find time this week. Thesis is due on the 14th, so it’s officially crunch time. But I’ll get a score in.

Wait, what?!? It's crunch time?!? Don't play 'Galaga' during crunch time! Do your thesis, man!

'Galaga' has been waitin since 1981! It can wait a few weeks more!
