Ok here is one of my neo faves.

----------------------------------
Game Name : Spinmaster
ROM Name  = Spinmast
----------------------------------

Controls:   
    8 way joystick, 3 buttons; shoot, Jump, Super.

Spinmaster is an arcade game developed and released by Data East in December, 1993 in North America, in Europe the same year and on February 18, 1994 in Japan. It is the first game Data East developed and released for the SNK Neo-Geo MVS hardware.



Many years ago, a large treasure was hidden by a mysterious guy on an uncharted island. The guy of mystery drew the location of the treasure on a map and hid it deep in the forest of the island. Days turned to weeks, weeks turned to years, and years turned to decades. The guy who hid the map disappeared, never to be seen again. During this time, the map became dirty and weathered, eventually tearing into five pieces which were scattered about the corners of the world. One of these pieces wafted its way into the possession of the young treasure seeker name Johnny. Living with his girlfriend Mary and his rugged sidekick name Tom, Johnny dreamed of the day when he would some day find the ancient treasure on the hidden island of the mysterious guy.

Then one day, the greedy, treasure-seeking mad scientist, Dr. De Playne appeared in Johnny's little town. Seizing Johnny's piece of the treasure map and kidnapping Mary, Dr. De Playne set out to find the treasure and buy up all the toys and candy of the world, plunging the children of earth into a bitter darkness of continuous study and well-balanced meals. Johnny and Tom pursued the mad Dr. De Playne with their yo-yos to save Mary and the world.

If you are referring to the 2nd boss, feel free to use the smart bombs, you'll get new ones if you die, anyway. No sense in letting them go to waste.

What's up with the "Level 4" at the bottom of every screen?  I thought I might have started it on intermediate or something but I don't see anything in the dip switches to change it.

That level is actually pretty easy. You just have to learn the enemy pattern.
Edit: Make sure to have the double shurikens going in. Keep spamming them, they dispatch enemies on the ground and the bats. Do NOT collect the fire power up while carting along.

The scores.

1st    yamatetsu           296,200
2nd   NuclearWarren     246,200
3rd   Titchgamer            87,000
4th   Mike A.                 71,700
5th   pbj                       66,300

Titch, your turn again.
