@Corneel Thanks! I'll try to check it out.

Nice score on Tengai, by the way. I played for quite a bit and have only just managed to break 300k. Will post a picture when I'm more satisfied with my score.

I'm using Katana, by the way. Lots of great, in-depth tips here for anyone interested: https://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=40721

By the way, some of the ACA Neo Geo games are on sale on Xbox One. It looks like I will be taking part on Metal Slug 2 challenge after all. But why wasn't it Metal Slug X instead? Isn't it supposed to be the corrected version of 2?

@Moroboshi876 X is certainly better with the slowdown. What I have read/heard over the Internet it's still not necessarily better game, at least in single player mode.

@Zkibu But story-wise are they the same?

@Moroboshi876 I think there are some differences in the pacing of the story which reflects on the stages.

@Corneel I have one question. In Metal Slug 2 challenge it says 3 lives, 0 continues, but in the explanation you also talk about 3 credits. What's the right option?

@Corneel Don't be. I mean, you manage it and pay for it, so... By the way, how do you decide who's first and second when there's a tie like in DK3's case?

@Corneel No, I don't mind to be the one who got 9 points. I was just asking. After all I'm not going to win anyway.

My Progress in the current challenges so far:

GRADIUS II aka Vulcan Venture (beat the first boss, big bird thing, then crashed straight into the first wave of enemies after that. Does that count as level 2?)
Untitled

DONKEY KONG 3 (loving this game but who the heck is Stanley? Mario impersonator?)
Untitled

METAL SLUG 2 (Missions 1 and 2 cleared, stuck on end boss of Mission 3)
Untitled

TENGAI (stop laughing)

@Lroy Stanley is actually an obscure character in Nintendo's history, but they do put references to him in some games, like Game & Watch Gallery or WarioWare.

Slightly more respectable score for TENGAI:
