@Moroboshi876 No. If you get a score that's better you can post it and mention it for the open boards

@CW13 OK, if that ever happened (I don't think so) I'll post it here and whoever is in charge will put it where it belongs. Thanks, and sorry for coming so late and asking so many questions.

@GFoyle On the other hand it would be nice to go back to games that already had their challenge in order to give the newcomers an opportunity. I mean without overwriting the original ranks, of course. Just using those games for new challenges.

Yeah, this has been discussed and hopefully we do that at some point with some of the best ones at least. I'm all for it! First we need to gather more momentum, participants in general.

Did you have some game especially in mind?

Got something like 23k on the current challenge. I'll will post a screenshot of my best score before the challenge ends.

My highest score. I don't really have time today to try to do better, but it's been fun anyway.

The challenge has ended!

Thanks to all for participating and congratulations to @Tatanak for winning his first challenge. I'm sure it won't be the last time, judging to the also impressive score with Striker 1945 II. Choice for the next two week challenge is yours!

Final results can be seen on the Arcade Challenge Leaderboards.

Balloon Fight was fun, but I would prefer a shooting game. I think Omega Fighter caravan mode will be great for the next challenge.

I haven't been playing this that much yet, one few runs one day, but I'll try to fix that this week.

Got a bit of improvement, I'm around 64k+ range I think, can't remember exactly.

I have a mixed feeling of this game. It has a lot of the issues I don't like that in those older eighties shmups, like HUGE hitbox (whole ship at least!), annoying close range surprise attacks and enemies coming, moving in strange ways. Bullets are not that fast in general, but enemy ships often are so it doesn't help. But even with the slow bullets, the big hitbox and not that fast ship makes it really annoying to avoid dodge them.

Yes, it's little bit outdated but I think it has good graphics, music and great risk reward scoring system. This is my final score, I used a trick from this video: Omega Fighter 5336520pts on stage 2, +300k points.
