NTSC - Points Score Track http://www.twingalaxies.com/scores.php?scores=3435 Rules Factory Default [No Codes Allowed]
Special Rules: Level skipping via destroying a boss fast enough, IS permitted! You're only permitted to obtain the secret 1-Up on Level 4 ONCE per loop or your scoring attempt will be disqualified! Please note that when you beat the game, it starts over from the begining with your score intact, so you may continue on until you either lose all your lives and reach the Game Over Screen or the Score maxes out.
I've been meaning to get the discussion rolling on the AVS system by retroUSB, so I played this submission using it along with an original NES Gradius cart.
After the AVS is powered on, I show that both no game genie codes are active, and that no turbo buttons are active, as well.
For those looking for more info on the AVS, I will supply links in the submission discussion.
Made it to stage 3 of the 2nd loop, screen cap of final score:
Thanks for taking a look and adjudicating my submission!
