Glad you'll be joining in. Doc is kicking my ass :lol:

You ordered the PAL copy right? If so, just fyi, it does have a menu for 50/60 hz (at least mine does).

Yep, PAL for cheapicity and quickliness of delivery (allegedly... :roll: )

Very much enjoying this game. Love the "feel" of it as well as the scoring mechanism.

At end of day 1 I can get 214 million after mid-boss on level 2, so I need to work on my survival!

Will post a score tomorrow...

So far I think my best has been about 290 million on Stage 1 and about 410 million in total after Stage 2. Still not scoring very highly on Stage 3, though. Needs more practice...

skate323k137 - 384,230,000 - stage 4 - 42 combo

I have a pic if this ends up being my best score; I hope it does not. I definitely have room to improve on the first couple stages score wise.

Not very good at surviving. Must play some more and ignore score so I can learn the survival in stage 2 and beyond. Got killed in this run just into level 2 - not even at mid-boss! Gah...

Spyke - 218,942,000 - stage 2 - combo 45

I put some time into Homura today. This game is shit tons of hard. I have stage 1 down pretty well, but I still take stupid deaths against the boss, and stage 2 is just stupid. (I really don't like stage 2.) I happened to make it through stage 1 on this run without any misses, and decent scoring for a stage score of 210 million, but I ended up with a score that only beat out my previous high score by 3 million—. I still haven't seen past the stage 2 mid-boss, as well.

Not sure if I'll really be motivated to pick this one up again this month. I like the combo scoring, but I dislike the additional kill percentage bonuses, and the bullet patterns just aren't doing it for me. Too much commotion. Feels too much like an indie homebrew game, to me.
