Steven Pendleton Posted December 31, 2022 Share Posted December 31, 2022 Last year (or last week, if you prefer) I decided to do this, so here it is. This month we are playing Slap Fight, which you can find on your convenient Slap Fight MD game cartridge/Mega Drive Mini/etc. as the default game option. We will play Slap Fight MD next month, so Rules: Game type = normal Difficulty = normal Player = 3 These are the default settings, so you can just hit start on the title screen and immediately begin without having to change anything. The music option changes only the music, so feel free to use the original PSG soundtrack if you like it more than the arranged FM soundtrack. You can disable the autofire if you want, but you probably won't want to, especially because it's very helpful for scoring. The hidden Toaplan mode defaults to disabled. Leave it disabled. Submit scores using the following format: NAME - SCORE - AREA - RAPID ON/OFF As an example, if I got a score of 123,456 using the autofire function and game overed at area 2-20, I would submit like this Steven - 123,456 - 2-20 - ON Submit as many scores as you like. Your highest score for the month will be your score. Feel free to submit replays and/or screenshots if you want! The deadline is 23:59:59 GMT on January 31st (2023, obviously). Yes, we are using GMT since it's the closest thing there is to a universally accepted time zone, and so that I don't have to favour anyone's specific time zone, as we are scattered across the planet. Yeah, I know it's not January 1st yet in that time zone, but it's good enough, so you can submit starting now if you want. I'm not going to be like SUPER SERIOUS about the times or whatever, but please do try to make it in by the deadline. Click here for our timer, just in case. HOW TO PLAY SLAP FIGHT Slap Fight's scoring system is not immediately apparent when you first play the game, but it does have one, and it is a very fun and interesting one. Aside from killing things, you get points from picking up stars, and, most importantly, from using the various weapons to uncover secrets. The weapon that uncovers secrets in a certain area is typically but not always the best weapon for that area! Scoring is heavily based on knowing the secrets and when to switch weapons. There are some areas with multiple types of secrets; you'll have to choose which secrets you want to get and use the appropriate weapon, but remember that some secrets are worth more than others! Any enemies or secrets that are on screen when you switch weapons are affected by the properties of both the weapon you had and the weapon you switched to. Remember also that you are completely invulnerable for about 2 seconds after changing weapons or attaching a set of wings! Use this to fly through massive amounts of enemy shots. Finally, if you hold up+right+weapon change+shot as you start the game or respawn after a death without a star in your possession, you'll be given a star so you can get a speed up immediately! If you want more information on Slap Fight, or just want to discuss this impossibly excellent game, let me know, as I know pretty much everything about the game. Go forth and blow up all of the things! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
