High Score Competition - Now Playing Game #5 - Exerion
« on: February 26, 2018, 09:06:40 am »
High Score Competition #5: Exerion 1983 Jaleco.













----------------------------------------------------

ROMSet: exerion

Default Settings

Lives: 3
Bonus: 10,000
Difficulty: Easy

----------------------------------------------------

- One credit only!

- No continues or adding credits!

- No MAME cheats!

- Last day is Sunday March 11th (11:59:59pm Pacific Daylight Time), 2018.
 
- High score wins.

- No savestates, savestate practices, etc. during the round.

- MAME INP recordings are encouraged but optional.

- A screenshot is required to enter a score (press F12 to save screenshot showing your final score) or take a photo of the game screen.

- If you're a MARP competitor on this title, keep in mind this is just a friendly competition among forum members, so maybe you shouldn't enter. However, if you're a forum member and this is a game you're good at and nobody knows about it, this is your time to shine!

- Even if you don't have a competitive score or if you don't *think* that you have a competitive score, please post it anyway to keep the thread fun & to give everybody a good sense of score ranges.

- Please make sure your scores are from games that take place during the competition period (no posting your best score from last year, etc.).

- Use of autofire or other non-standard hacks within MAME or your PC's OS are not allowed.  No program or other person or entity of any sort may manipulate your controls during your game.  Coaching & back-seat driving is fine as long as the party doesn't directly influence the game or controls.

- If you can beat any of the high scores from the previous competitions, you can submit your score to the BYOAC High Game Scoreboard.

----------------------------------------------------

Quote
This is a shoot-em-up game with parallax effects in the background and a nice simulation of inertia in the control of the ship. You have lots of enemies and two kinds of shooting, slow and fast.




Well... Nobody else was going to pick it! Enjoy! :)

C'mon now... What else you got to do during these next 2 weeks?

I hated this game when I first stumbled upon it. But it didn't take long to become one of my favorite shmups!

The inertia effect in this game... Mmmm... Tasty.

Currently I'm playing Phantasy Star, replaying Wild Arms and playing Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. I don't need another shmup, especially not one I disliked even before I died the first time. This feels like a crosshair shooter to me, a genre which I hate with a passion.

Turns out switching the joystick back from 4-way to 8-way makes this game a bit easier...

I don't want to talk too much trash, but for some reason, as soon as I read your post, all I could think of was this, haha: https://youtu.be/O4vbMv9gbmM

Arggghhh I missed the deadline but really nothing to crow about, I got 25800, pretty pathetic, unfortunately hardly any time to play.  I took a pic with the phone but I missed the deadline and my score may be the worse so... LOL

BTW, I think this is one of the rare games I don't think I ever played until today. I mean even in mame, never tried it. I found the control to be too loose for my liking but I get it's to simulate flying a jet of sorts.  I must say, loose or whatever, I started getting the pattern "circling" but the game is fun. It's also pretty nice technically too, live the scrolling background!

Yet again, the intent on this thread reveals itself to be the real winner: because of the thread, I got to experience a "new" game, one I will certainly go back to in the future.

Definitely a unique little game. I never knew about it until I accidentally won and Exerion that was in a converted upright Zaxxon on eBay for $0.99. Hated it at first. But is now one of my favorite shmups. Haven't played one that has felt as rewarding as this one. After I sold the cab, I missed the game bad enough to pick up a "conversion kit".

Yeah man, I really like this one, too. Great pick, Nephasth.

I could post my 2nd place score (which was disappointing considering I was in 200K a lot last time this game was on) with photo, which was taken on Sunday, that would bump Nephasth to 3rd place, and according to the new (weird!) rules is the selection place for next competition. Let me know if you wanna make an exception for the sake of moving forward.

Standard procedure would be having the player who made fourth place choose the next game, since there were only 3 players it would be #2's turn. Question is whether Nephasth wants to do it again?

Sorry all, I've been away for a while. Thanks for picking up the slack and posting the next game.
