DonPachi (All Formats)

Post by jugemscloud » January 23rd, 2010, 5:15 pm

The DonPachi high-score competitions we used to have on IRC were great, but that died a while back. :( I know quite a few of you have boards of this game, so maybe this thread will liven things up again.

Any board (Japanese, international, Korean, Hong Kong), console (Saturn, PSX?) or MAME. Whatever. Be sure to state what format/region you were playing when achieving the score. If there're loads of submissions (yeah, yeah - I know...), I'll split it in to platform-specific boards. For now, everyone will be in the same table.

Name - Initials - Ship - Platform - Score

Code: Select all

 1. Akraten     - BAD - C - PCB (J) - 10,620,440
 2. gabe        - GAH - C - PCB (U) -  8,420,590
 3. jugemscloud - D.W - A - PCB (J) -  6,220,610
 4. TwonK       - MAD - C - PCB (J) -  5,981,110
 5. Aypok       - AYP - C - PCB (K) -  4,116,090
 6. turntablism - mik - C - pcb (k) - 3'818'090 
 7. Artemio     - AUG - C - PCB (J) -  3,073,260
 8. kernow      - KRN - A - PCB (J) -  3,019,150
 9. Rossyra     - RDR - C - PCB (J) -  2,801,160

Not bad going.

Out of curiosity I just had a look what the world record score is.

Ryougaeshi (両替士) - Type C – 55.882.090

Type C is the lowest scoring ship too.

:lol:

I never said I was any good and am genuinely expecting to remain at the very bottom of the list (as I do with all other games). :)

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan of it in this game - it's a bit too slow, which means I occasionally miss some of the bees (like the bottom-right one on level one). I sometimes play it for a bit before moving back to the A ship - it makes me do better, for some reason. Like playing bass for an hour before playing guitar.

My previous bests (topping out at 3.8 million) are all with the A ship, which is still my favourite. Having said that; level four (which annihilates me) is considerably easier with the C ship due to the side-pods stopping me from dying when ships come in horizontally.

Nice score. I need to start playing this game again; I've been too busy playing MVS titles as of late. Let's see if I can't best my current high-score this coming month. :)
