Hyper Duel (Saturn mode only) - Hi-Scores

by wip3outguy7 Thu May 10, 2012 5:44 pm

The arcade release and exclusive Saturn mode are different enough to be two separate games. Someone else can make a dedicated Hyper Duel arcade thread. :lol:

Let's get started...

Image

-Normal Difficulty
-Lives must be set to 3 (default). This affects bonus scoring at the end of each stage.
-Post score as: NAME - SCORE - STAGE - CHARACTER
-Characters are Keith Spader (blue ship), Lisa Rowland (red ship), Dr. B. Lloyd (silver ship)

As always...

**If I'm falling behind on posting scores, PM me.

***Score pictures are appreciated but not required.

****No Continues

1. wip3outguy7 - 1,679,161 - Stage 8 - Lisa

Cool. I'm going to add a tips and scoring section to the OP later tonight when I have more time.

Hmm I might have to fire up my copy and post mine. I forget what it was, but it was a pretty nasty one. I think...

Quick run before bed. Haven't played this in eons! Thanks for reminding me how frustratingly fun this game is. Probably a bad habit, but I rarely transform into the robot. The ship is good enough.

Nice one. The wife works late tonight, so I will sit down for a few plays.

This game really can be frustrating. I always make a stupid mistake that I should have seen coming from a mile away.

Definitely use the mech form. It allows you to spray fire at waves of enemies.

Here's my highest score.

I don't remember the details since I got the score awhile ago, but it was at the very end so I think that makes it stage 8? I got the score on a run where I cleared the game with default settings, but I know it wasn't my clear score because the last boss took my last credit. I only use robot form when fighting bosses, other than that I find the ship to be preferable. I usually pick Lisa as well. Lloyd deals some crazy damage but I prefer speed over damage in most shmups.

brunoafh - 755,105 - Lisa

Related, damn this makes me want to play a few runs right now.

Nice one. I've never gotten past stage 6 on a single credit. And I too prefer Lisa. I think her options have a slight edge over the other two as they shoot through walls.

Keith's spread shot in ship form makes several sections easier for him than anyone else, though.

I have been experimenting with Lloyd. He has a lot of potential, but you have to constantly switch between ship and mech with him. His options deal out a lot of damage in both forms.

2nd run of the night, surprisingly. I just couldn't seem to work through the 6th stage boss. Fuckin' bullet barf.

The 2nd place score below is from over a week ago. I smashed it.

Yes, "Black Rain" is easily the best song in the game.

Saturn version here.
