Seriously, guys. The only way to play MK against the computer is to abuse as many cheap tactics as you possibly can.

I agree back in the day when it was fresh I was making it my job to kick SF2 and MK1s ass because I was at a summer (day) camp with an arcade. I didn't like losing my quarters to AI and especially not people who walked up. I'd train there, train far more at home with the SNES games and the difficulty set to maximum. MK1 didn't much matter where you set it because it was cheap, just a little bit more aggressively cheap so you just had to be a bit more aggressive using the same cheap combos and jump hits to tear up the game. Usually due to design those cheap tricks would often work on people due to the somewhat poor design of the game made to just really sell digitized gore and death. SF2 though it was smarter as it inched up, you really had to get more calculating, tactical, and brutal with your moves, combos and change-ups to take out people and the AI.

I played MK over the summer at the IGBY 2016, and we had to play it on VERY HARD difficulty. Many strategies abound, mainly involving jump kicks. It's hard enough on Normal, but on Very Hard, FUGGETABOUTIT!

Jump kicks are the games ultimate starter. Like with Subzero, follow it up with a slide kick, then ice, then an uppercut and you lose around 40% of your health. Similar tactics can be used with Scorpion using the jump kick in, hold back hard roundhouse, then teleport and nail someone. Liu Kang you can jump kick in, trip, then bike kick and follow with a fireball. They all had these jump kick (heavy) in type combos to destroy the AI.

I just can't stand Treasure's programmers just because of the utter BS they write in their interviews, such as claiming the robotic joints are "software rendered by the CPU in real time." If that's true, why do the joints only move in 22.5 angles? It looks like you just have 16 frames already loaded in VRAM, and you're just animating them that way.

Perhaps they're just simplifying the calculations? Dunno, I haven't delved deep into some of the architecture stuff.

The biggest reason why there was slowdown in SNES shmups, is because Treasure and Konami wanted every single developer to program their games THEIR way. If there is anybody to blame for slowdown in SNES games, it's Treasure and Konami's fault.

I think it's more due to the lack of...

Blast processing is easy to program on the SNES. All you have to do is follow this article:
