Round 7 - R-Type Leo (US Version)!

Round 7 is: R-Type Leo (US Version).
Goal: See how far you can get on 3 credits.

R-Type Leo is a horizontal shmup developed by Nanao and published by Irem.

This is a fun game that I've had positive experiences with in the past. It's nowhere near as difficult as the original R-Type which is brutally punishing.

There is a US version and a Japanese version. The main difference is that the US version lets you restart where you were when you die, whereas the Japanese version has restart points, similar to the original R-Type.

We decided to go with the US version since we are American and French (and not Japanese robots), so it will give us a better chance of getting to the end   :)

Let's go go go and have fun with this one!!!

Round 6 - My Super Mario Bros 3 - Post Mortem and Screenshots

Sweet. Thanks for humoring me and playing that :)    I've always loved SMB.

My Super Mario Bros 3 was a very difficult SMB level set, at least as hard as "the lost levels" if not harder. World 3-1 was particularly brutal.


organic io: Finished (World 6 final)
A-Lin: World 3 Castle

I played it again tonight to take screenshots and see if I could discover levels 5-3 and 5-4, however I still couldn't find them, I think they don't exist. It just goes from 5-2 to 6-final.

Screenshot time!

2-1 - This is the extra lives loop exploit   :)


 Castle 2, make sure you choose the right way to go   :)
 3-1 , probably the most difficult level in the game. Massive jumping puzzle at this point and beyond that is very challenging

 Castle 3. Indeed very difficult. You have to stay on the floating platform and get through all the fireballs and turtles. Intense.
 Castle 4. Lots of jumping on moving platforms


 World 6 final. It's the last level. Challenging, but not as bad as 3-1.

Awesome! Tell me what you want to play next?
