Another one I do not have. This is one I have been wanting for a while though. Must avoid pulling the trigger on another game right now.

You have the Lynx SD cart?  You can also play it in an emulator.  The SD cart is a "must buy" though.

Ah, the memories... er, who are/were you there?

Apparently the same username as here! As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, an unpronounceable string of consonants. I think I had a different one for a while but I no longer recall what.

It’s virtually impossible to recover after you die in this one, even moreso than normal Raiden. So don’t die :) 


63650 for me, not done yet.



Here’s a tip to make it a lot more fun: bomb the first powerup gunship. It’s very difficult to take it down otherwise. But you need that powerup, and while bombs are important to conserve, this one is worth it. (This is the only version of Raiden where the first gunship isn’t a gimme.)


Usually you want to avoid the laser in stage 1 in Raiden, but it actually seems to work even better than the spread shot, because the game is so slow. You can easily lay down curtain fire across the screen so most of the time there are zero enemies on screen.
