Cho Ren Sha 68k 1-ALL
I cleared the first loop of the game, which means I beat stages 1-6 + stage 0 on one credit. I game over’d on the first stage of the second loop (stage 2-1). I’ve been playing the game a little bit thanks to the new Sharp X68000 core for MiSTer. This just started off as a casual run, I wasn’t swinging for the fences or anything, but this led to me playing conservatively and bombing a lot. The real game changer was that I got better at the ‘collect all 3 powerups’ trick, which really helps drive up your score, which then helps you get extra lives.
It’s a great game! The soundtrack is fantastic, you can buy it or enjoy it on YouTube.
