BATTLE #45 Game: Undercover Cops Platform(s): Arcade Challenge Type: High Score Game Details: Full Game, Japanese ROM When: Feb 15th - Mar 14th, 2022 Chosen By: Yakumo
I’ve updated the website with the new game, man the periscopes!
Good luck everyone, please submit your scores via screenshot or video by replying directly to this post!
Competitions last two weeks, close on Sunday night @ midnight.
Post screenshots in this thread as proof.
The winner from the previous week chooses the next game to play.
You cannot choose twice in a row. 2nd place will choose if someone wins two weeks in a row.
If there’s a tie, the person that submitted the high score first gets to choose.
Games must be high score compatible (think “arcade style scores” like Pac-Man, or Spy Hunter, not Super Mario).
Emulation is okay (MAME is often the best for high scores).
No save state manipulation (pausing to take a break is fine though).
Submit scores as soon as you get them! To keep the competition rolling and fair, do not hold on until the last moment to submit.
Points will be awarded for the entrants, based on the position finished for the week. This is to encourage wider participation, and the points will be posted each week as well as on the website.
Any honest attempt:
Overall, we should keep it simple. This is just a good time, not a crazy official high score competition! Game plays should ideally be short and fun so people that can’t invest hours into this can still compete. Obviously we are working on a trust based system here, so don’t ruin it for the others!
I would strongly advise against using the world version for this game. The western release of Undercover Cops is literally a beta version of the game that was released as is. This means some backgrounds are not completed, the music quality is awful and most crucially, more than half of the movelist had yet to be implemented (no alternate combos, no super desesperation move, no alternate grabs). Not only is it an uglier and less fun game, the scoring depth is much reduced as a result of the missing mechanics.
If that’s what previous week’s winner wants I won’t go against it, but I figured this needs to be said.
I wasn’t aware the world version was so bad. Personally, I always play the Japanese versions of games but though people would rather have an English language version.
Lets change to the Japanese release.
