WEEK 43 & 44 Game: Crazy Taxi Platform(s): Dreamcast, Various Challenge Type: Cash Flow! Game Details: Default Settings, Arcade Mode, Most Cash When: July 6th - July 19th, 2020 Chosen By: Sapiens
I’ve updated the website with the new game, let’s get driving!
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!
You’ll be fine, I remember the console version being easier. The only “advanced movement” I could still pull off was all muscle memory. Makes sense since you have to do it like every couple of seconds and it’s what makes the game a real workout on arcade. The super boost (don’t know what it’s official name is). The thing that is a step above the normal crazy boost and you do non stop to keep your speed over the normal max.
Enjoy the 30-40 minutes it takes to get those scores legit. I have to warn people waiting to play after me when I am playing. You can just farm the multiplier bonus doing donuts in the parking lot at the start if you want to cheese it though.
Sorry friend. The crazy dash is something you are know right? Shit it into drive when hitting the gas at the same time for a “boost”. There is a higher version of that that knocks you up to over the max speed, which you then reduce down to if you don’t keep on doing it again. While driving if you take your foot (or finger) off the gas and then shift into reverse, pause half a second and then do the crazy dash motion you will get that extra boost. There is a rhythm to it. Reason why all my scores use Gus is because he has the best of everything other then acceleration, which doesn’t matter if you are going to max/over max speed every few seconds. He isn’t as good if you aren’t doing that motion since there is a lot of stopping and starting in the game.
You can also just take your foot off the gas and do the crazy boost motion every few seconds and get most of the same effect/still ride it to an S rank and the actual credits as well.
