This is an amazing game. I remember when I was in High School we created an old-school arcade by installing Mame in all the computers the computer lab had so we got a computer for Frogger, another one for Donkey Kong and we also left one for DoDonPachi.

Half an hour later we had five out of six people in the room playing DoDonPachi. It was the most played game and we had to get it running on more computers to fill the demand. :lol:


Let's see if I can get a good run going, I can't make it to stage 3 anymore which is a shame when I could almost 1cc it.

I'd rate any DonPachi game as far and away better than any Namco shmup, including Xevious or Galaga :twisted:

well Galaga holds a special place for me. But honestly, the DonPachi series is easily becoming a favorite to me.

I played a lot of Resurrection (Novice Mode was even my first 1CC!). But although I've had DDP for months, I wouldn't let myself play it until now. Spent a good hour+ playing this morning and my initial impression is that I just love this game. I'm consistently hitting stage 3 where I then lose my shit. But I can def see myself sticking with it and improving this month.

Cave FTW.



EDIT: made it to 3rd boss. Died. Realized I still had 3 bombs left. Shmup-world problems.


EDIT:

noiseredux - 7,859,080 - Stage 4 - 157 - Shot - Sat

I just cleared the first loop with the orange ship, but my wife turned off the machine before I could write down the score. :roll:

I'll just have to do it again.
