Is the Strikers challenge over? I didn't even manage to ask how the gold lingots work... 200/2000 points, what's the deal with that?

If you time to correctly when the light sweeps over the brick and it flashes for just a moment, you'll get 2000 points. The window is very small, and it makes it that much harder to having to focus on this as well as avoiding incoming projectiles.
Quite a few Psykio games do this actually.

Totally unrelated - tonight or tomorrow UK time. We are trying to get some folks together to play ROCKET LEAGUE.

Check out the 'Adult Switch Gamers' thread for details

http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/nintendo-switch/adult_swit...

And if anyone new here, doesn't know, that's the thread we tend to try and organise game nights for any Switch online multiplayer fun.

We run MARIO KART 8 DELUXE every Monday and hope to make ROCKET LEAGUE and other games like ARMS etc fixtures in the future.

As mentioned by @Lroy, the community has a regular Mario Kart gaming evening organised every Monday. You lads are most welcome to join in the fray tomorrow evening UK time!

Finally I get my fair share of gaming.
Praise the Switch!

@OorWullie Man, here I only just broke 100k, and I have no idea how you got 150k. I hope it stays that way, but @mauhlin12 is closing in on ya'.

@Corneel Welcome!

@wasilewski Well played! Type C shot, eh? I couldn't make that work for some reason.

@masterLEON thanks chief! All my high scores seem to come with type C shot so I think I'm gonna work with it. I like how spread out it is.

I've been using Kongo. He can break most furniture with a (default controls) YYY combo. Also you can launch and juggle enemies using BBB, forward, forward, B over and over. You can experiment with different combos but my favorite is BBBYYY. I start with China (easy) level and use that BBBYYY combo on the boss. You don't want to get too far away because he'll use his fire triple jump attack which wastes about 10 seconds every time. Knock down with that combo, get near him but not on his attack plane, let him get up and combo him again. I also don't jump unless it's to get the food on the table at the beginning of the stage for a free 2000 points if your health is full. I also don't use the projectile weapons, but keep collecting shurikens since the most you can hold is 9 and if you grab a shuriken off the ground that's another 1000 points. Finally, I use my down, down B attack to hit far away enemies, especially the stabby samurais when they aggro. That's what has been working for me so far.

The upload score screen popped up at a very unfortunate time when there was some excessive b-button mashing going on. Now the screen doesn't pop up at all in sessions after that (even though i beat my score). Anybody know how to fix this?

@mauhlin12, great explanation of your tactics. For me it's all about the bonus at the end of the level. It varies from 20k up to 40k. That's what i'm focusing on right now.

@Corneel That is also great advice- don't mash B when the timer is near the end, I've lost a high score like that too. I closed the game and restarted it and the "upload score" prompt started popping up again. Now if somebody could just figure out how to skip that cut scene at the start of the Italy level...

@Corneel Try resetting the score, should allow you to upload again after that☺

Wasn't sure if I was gonna join in this week as I don't have Sengoku 3 or either of the earlier games and would like to play through them first, but think I'm gonna buy it tonight and get in on the fun, great to be part of this community and it brings a new element of fun to Switch Arcade gaming😃

Here’s mine...I doubt I’ll for further. I got a high score of 516,002 and a 1cc score of 335,800.

@OorWullie

Thanks for doing the weekly scores but I don’t think you saw my last score posted on Friday for Strikers 1945. Please update at your convenience, I posted a regular and 1CC score.

Thanks!

Just updated the final leaderboard for Strikers 1945. Apologies for being later than normal with this one. I've been catching up with friends before I head back to Thailand.Finally booked my flights today ,flying on the 11th which is a bit further away than I'd hoped to go but it was by far the cheapest date.

Anyway ,I've been out the loop a little the last few days. I've been playing and struggling with Dragons Blaze. I probably should get playing some Sengoku 3 and try to better my score. I'm really not sure how the end of stage bonus score is handed out.When I set my high score I had lost a life and didn't have full health,other times I've finished the stage with both lives intact and no slower than my best runs.Ive broken 150k 4 times now and each time felt like I could have done a lot better.

@Zkibu Added your Metal Slug score to the open leaderboard.Well played!

@Wasilewski Added your score to the Danmaku Unlimited 3 leaderboard,also well played

I'm giving Sengoku 3 a go this week. Right now i'm somewhere in the 30s on the leaderboard; haven't quite cracked 100k yet, but only made a couple runs so far. What characters have y'all been focusing on to maximize scores?

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

@the_shpydar
I think you'll crack 100k if you just beat the level (China) in time. I have currently about 125K points and I am using Kagetsura but I think that more top players are using Kongoh.

Balls! Just had the old spamming 'B' score hadn't registered balls-up happen. My best score so far too: 77, 800. Would have put me just behind @bushido at 50th/51st on Global Leaderboards.

Oh well, will try again.


EDIT All is well, I closed the game and restarted it. Managed to top my score and it registered.

I'm currently at 84, 600 and 42nd on the Global Leaderboard.

I can't seem to finish the China Level boss off in time. Will keep at it.


EDIT AGAIN Now up to 36th with a score of 88, 400. Still haven't managed to defeat the boss though, lol!

@OorWullie thanks buddy!

I noticed you mention Dragon Blaze - I bought it last week and only played it a few times because I'm really into Danmaku Unlimited 3 at the minute. Grazing long chains of bullets is so satisfying.
