This isn't very good...and I have a very high tolerance for subpar shmups. It feels jittery, lacks proper excitment and the hitbox feels wrong.

 

 

The NES port was reveloped by Micronics which explains everything.

 

But they developed another helicopter shooter for NES called Twin Cobra which is great. Go figure.

Am I allowed to post a score not from the contest? (50,170)

I see you already beat your personal best, but fyi, nope, only scores obtained during the round period are accepted for the contest. New highs posted afterwards will be considered exhibition and added to the website (like wongo’s awesome tmnt3 score!)

Depends on where I play  ?   Top Loader in one room (all my retro stuff and 32" CRT).  OG Model connected to 13" CRT in my office.   Emulator (usually Mesen) when playing at my PC.  And Mister when playing on the HD/Flatscreen.

 

So, all over the place.

what is mister? I keep hearing about it but don't what it is?
It's a system based on a processor that can do emulation on a hardware level. It's way more efficient, and could be more accurate, although not necessarily. Depends on the system.

I admit the game has not aged well. 

 

Yeah, it's not a great game -- nothing I'd get excited about playing on my own -- but competitions like this helps squeeze a bit of extra fun out of these mediocre games, in my opinion.  So long as it ain't broke and unbearable, there's usually some fun to be had, with the right mindset.

There are plenty of youtube videos explaining it, and showing it working.

 

Here's one from Digital Foundry:

 

It doesn't attract me as much as it once did. Retroarch is so advanced and tight nowadays that I doubt I would spot any difference. Besides, my favourite system, the Commodore Amiga, has the same inaccuracies both on winUAE and MISTER.
