This is new one for me, but it looks fun and it's rated fairly high.  The score disappears quickly at game over so you may want to pause before losing that last life to record your score.  Also, I couldn't find a manual scan for this one.  I've linked to a game guide instead.  If anyone finds a link please post it.  Thanks fakecortex.

This game doesn't reset your score after a continue, so just hit the continue button to see it.

190400 so far...I don't usually play this game solo, so it's a bit more difficult without a buddy, especially when you get sandwiched (which the AI REALLY likes to do).

I have this game on Genesis, but have never played the NES version before today, I don't think.  It's pretty impressive and seems more advanced that the system should allow, at times.

 

 

It took a few tries before I developed the habit of keeping my distance 3x more than what it "feels like" I should to avoid getting hit.

 

Pretty cool that we already have a few scores that are higher than the 2008 AA high score.

I got farther, but didn’t get a pic. Thanks for the tip @Asaki so I played again quickly so I can get a score submitted. I love the varied moves and how funny they all are. The hit boxes take some getting used to for sure. This game really does feel advanced, especially the 3D aspects. Pretty impressive.

You know the walls and ladders you can climb? Grip those and you can kick enemies without them being able to hit you. Just hold the direction you want to kick and attack. Sadly this doesn't seem to work on the yellow walkers with the long legs as they won't approach you. You have to fight them normally.

Ah, I didn’t realize most enemies wouldn’t attack you like that, sweet!

Yeah... I dunno if I should be ashamed of myself, go to confession, or accept that she showed up in a bra and packin' a whip, so "a good time for all" was implied.

Holy moly. I’ve only played as a Battletoad who has silly moves. Not as one of the apparently psychotic Dragon twins 😱
