Pulstar Progress Update!

I was sidetracked for a bit by UN Squadron (great game, by the way!) and haven't put much time into Pulstar since I wrote about it 2 blog entries ago on 7-22.



Just this last week I've been focusing on it a bit more and I've (unofficially) beaten the standing arcade and MAME top scores on TG and Aurcade.





I finished my run today (at Galloping Ghost Arcade) by dying in the last part of the 4th level, with a final score of 393,650. In practice, I can usually beat the 4th level, but I made a mistake and picked up the wrong weapon which was a costly error on my part. I will be practicing a bit more and hope to be able to clear the game in the next few weeks, so keep yours eyes peeled for that!

    Nice! Is having the correct weapon at the correct time, like R-Type, essential to survival?

    Pulstar is an interesting game. I think it's brutally hard.

    In some cases, yes, having the wrong weapon is death. Not quite as bad as R-Type, but there are 2 weapons in this game whose symbols look very close to each other, almost identical...which sucks when you're picking up the wrong one!
