@meppi It'd be awesome if Crazy Taxi showed up on the Switch. But in all good faith, I'd have to bow out of the competition because of reasons

This was 9 years ago. I was...pudgier back then >_<

Nah, you'd be fine! It would make the contest a bit more interesting that way!
Some really good moves there, especially the jump towards the helipad. Never did it like that.
I also tend to hit a lot more cars. I figure it would be easier to control with a steering wheel compared to the Dreamcast stick, which is a lot more jumpy.
Actually, the Switch Pro controller might be a really good fit for Crazy Taxi due to it's triggers.
The PS controllers never felt anywhere near as good for it, although the 360 one was pretty good.

What am I supposed to do here as I got linked to this. I don't have any of these on Switch because I own the real Neo Geo arcade cabinet cartridge boards.

Love this idea. I'd never have a chance of beating that score though

Allright, let's get this thread rolling.

Still plenty room for improvement as I actually died early at the start of level 2, but it's good enough to set a new goal for now.

Edit: also that music track for stage 2 always gets me. Absolutely breathtaking!

Just hit 16th place, with 132880!
From now on I suppose it'll be all fine tuning, so I don't think I'll move that much... But never say never...
Fairly proud of my self however!

@RetroGamerAndrew
Thank you.
Like I said, it should be relatively easy to better it as I had a couple of mistakes that I know of.
Should be able to get to 160.000 on a better run. Not sure if I'd be able to top that nr.1 score though as time seems to be the true enemy there. But you never know.
Need to experiment with different weapons for that I think.

@meppi Impressive score . I was just showing my nephew my place on the leaderboard earlier and I had dropped to 11th.Now I know why!

I know I can better my own score too. It took me countless attempts just to stay alive for 5 minutes but I've now got stage 1 sussed and can make it to stage 2 without losing a life. I think anyone that can last the 5 minutes without losing a life is guaranteed a high rank.

@RetroGamerAndrew Good going.Did you lose any lives on your run?

@OorWullie thank you! not this time, I managed to do a clean run... But I played a bit on the conservative side and the score reflects that...

I’m not so great at shmups, but I still love them. My score is 109,780, SeanyP on the online rankings. Will post up a pic! @OorWullie thanks for putting this together— super fun! And great pic on the first game. I would also like to nominate Strikers 1945 as a future option!

Doesn't look like I am able to post the picture in this forum, but you'll see my score on the leaderboards online.

How do you post pictures? I’m currently 14th with 135,980, aka Frenchie. Very cool shmup, first time playing it today. Looks & plays like R Type.

We should also add in docked or handheld. My score was done handheld.

Wow, some great scores posted. As soon as I get the chance I'll jump back on it and try and improve my rather weak score (think it was 80,000 ish. I'll be content if I can break 100,000.

Let's be Switch friends: add me 3127 6508 1219.
