I've got a much better run to post, but can't upload the pic until tomorrow :)

Stage 4 is where it gets brutal - I can't get to the boss even w/o at least using 2 bombs, usually 3.

Good score dude. I really do love this game - so beautiful. The bosses are just great as well, the first 2 are fairly easy once you get the patterns down after a few runs - that 3rd boss is a bear. You think you have him beat 3 times and he just keeps re-inventing himself. I can get by him pretty steadily now, but stage 4 has a lot of room for growth.

Oh, and lets get a few more guys playing this one too :P

Heh yeah, I thought that 3rd boss was down at least twice, but nope. Although I do love those counter-intuitive games like Garegga and Dimahoo, I really enjoy a game with a nice intuitive scoring system. I can actually see where more score would be possible in each level, and my stage 1 keeps getting better.

With this being on MAME, I'm hoping a few more will join us. Maybe someone here can go pick up that US Progear PCB partial kit over on shmups. :lol: :lol:

If there were interest, I could make a few conversions for those w/superguns too. Cost is about $125-130 - all dependent on how often / easily I can source dead boards from more common games.
