Welcome to SOTM 2015! We've got another great community-contributed calendar and lots more shmup goodness coming your way.

This month from TSTR we have the original DonPachi!

*INFORMATION*
MAME romset: donpachi.zip
Description: Donpachi (US)

Other formats accepted: PS1 (Japan), Saturn (Japan), PSN (Japan)
No differences across the versions as far as I know. Please use default difficulties on all versions.

Autofire: Not an issue here as holding down the button simply fires your more powerful laser shot.

Format: Name - Score - Stage - Max Hit - Ship - Version/Port

Thank you and good luck!

Happy new year everyone!

Finally, a chance to really sink my teeth into this game. Gonna post a score early every month and again at the end after as much practice as possible to see how I improve.

Day 1:

Nyukki - 2,953,050 - 4 - 40 - C - MAME

Not familiar with level 4 yet. Nothing more annoying than dying with bombs in stock.

I am having a terrible time finding my Saturn A/V cable. Hopefully I can find it soon. May have to resort to buying one. :?

DocHauser - 6,147,930 - 5 - 61 - C - ShmupMAME 4.2

This might actually be my best score on Donpachi. I tend to use up my bombs as much as possible, so I could probably improve that score by not bombing and getting a better end-of-stage bonus.

Heh. I see that the Shmups Farm hi-score table has a Top 70 and the lowest score is 6.24 million, so I guess my target for this month is to scrape into the lower reaches of the table...

I've only ever played this for survival, so I'm quick to eat up my bombs too. Especially on bosses, since you get bomb stock refilled +1 at the beginning of the next stage if you're out.

Yeah, somehow I figured you'd like it. The one who suggested a shmup finds the word itself weird. I needed to swap out my previous quote.

But let me say I'm glad I decided to get you on board and it was also a good one to start our new calendar, because DonPachi's great. You can tell this is one of Cave's first games; it's got a lot of that 1990s shmup sensibility but it's just enough crazy to see the future of what shmups were going to be. A good mix of classic and modern right here, but lacks that visceral punch of DoDonPachi, which is something I don't mind at all. I felt right at home with this, as reflected in my first performance. Hit combos don't get as high as DDP, but they are still just as satisfying.

ExedExes - 3,054,730 - Area 4 - 38 - Type A - MAME
