BATTLE #47 Game: Steel Empire Platform(s): Genesis & Mega Drive Challenge Type: High Score Game Details: Full Game When: Apr 15th - May 14th, 2022 Chosen By: raskulous
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!
Really good! The graphics are redone from scratch, and they look great. The game feels a little more punchy, the sounds and explosions are more apparent and they are done really well. The super bomb explosion is like WOAH!
The gameplay is mostly the same, but the enemy patterns and bosses are different. The scoring is completely different, you get like 15k points per stage instead of 300k and up.
Overall, I’m impressed… the 3D effects are nice, the gameplay is done right, and it’s a really good port. Worth checking out if you like the Genesis version.
