A rough start to mission 6 but I clutched out the 1-credit clear!

Ignore the higher score, that's from an earlier run with continues.  (You can tell that by the last digit of the score - the score for 1-credit game ends in a zero)

Oh, wait...I think I got things mixed up.  No wonder people were confused when I brought cleats to the chess tournament.

The two versions cover pretty different scenes, which is kind of neat.  

Not sure whether it's an emulator glitch or just naughty behavior in the original, but on stage 3 (the caves) you can die for no apparent reason...maybe because the enemies have an active hurtbox right when they start to spawn?

A slightly higher score than the previous best ;)  

A key to scoring is to collect Water, Stone, and Fire treasures (in that order) from the three levels.  After clearing all three, you get a huge combination bonus for having the right treasures in the right order.  (Even if the treasures alone were worth 0 points, which can happen if the RNG decides to troll you)

Sly Spy - it's not a James Bond game, but it's getting as close to James Bond as it can without getting sued!  

I cleared this to play along with the 2016 1cc marathon - Spinmaster and Sly Spy are both *easy* 1ccs.  In Sly Spy you have just one life, but there are several enemies that drop a life-up item (a coca-cola can!)  This is especially easy in the driving section, and the Odd Job and diving-suit bosses.

No autofire used.  The game does have built-in rapid fire.  If you hold down the fire button, you fire steadily for about a second (and then stop).  So if you tap and hold the button once every second or so you fire quickly.

@S.BAZ:

Original flavor or remake?  The commercials in the original were awesome; I think they inspired some of the dark commercial-break humor in Starship Troopers and Starcraft.

From the screen at around 0:09 it looks like this difficulty is "Harder" not "Hardest"?

That is an impressive dig-dug run!

It would have been tempting to reset and start again after losing a life in round 2...but then it turned out to be a huge score.

Difficult is almost the same as Normal; the one difference I noticed is that the invincibility M coins are replaced.

I remember playing this back in 2006 and having trouble getting past stage 4 or so.  Since then I played some other shmups, and now it doesn't seem so tough to clear...by shmup standards.

Re-submitting, since the first submission (deleted) was accidentally submitted for Duck Tales 2.

I saw the top score for Easy was lower than the top score for Normal, so I decided to fix that.
