Yeah, the purple blood is more of a cosmetic thing to keep the game more family-oriented, I reckon.
I really want to master The Lost World: Jurassic Park on Model 3 arcade. Very few of these cabs work properly, but it has some tricky challenges and requires tons of memorization. When I last finished the game, I think I had about 4 continues used and my score was about 279,000.
Time Crisis II and 3 I also want to master. I have a Guncon 2 for my PS2 and TC2, but as I'm busy with school & work, there is little time for me to fiddle with it right now. :P
Thank you, J. Boorman! I've actually been able to score higher than this since this score was posted (my personal best is 99,000 right now on the cab). I'll admit I wasn't really counting my shots because I was more worried about getting continues (not permitted in order to be verified). With my Act Labs gun and Model 2 Emulator on a CRT, my best is 101,200 [the 6 fig range]. Very few people have scored over 100,000 points on HotD.
Sorry about that. I think you need to have a YouTube channel to view it, as it is unlisted. I see what I can change.
The screenshots you see are from a video recording I will be posting as an unlisted YouTube video soon. I'm not sure about the difficulty setting on this machine, but the minimum starting lives is 3, which is part of the default settings. If you complete this game with 1 credit, the last digit of your score will end in 0 and the next-to-last digit will be even.
I'm considering removing this score because this machine does NOT have default difficulty. There's several ways of playing this game. You can change the number of stages in the test menu, and records depend on how many stages you play.
World record for 5-stage: 7.1 million
World record for 4-stage: Maybe 5.? million
Thanks! Now I'll admit when I first joined here, I wasn't aware default settings HAD to be used. It actually takes a good bit of practice to get a score like this. Headshots on enemies make a massive difference, and there's secret-secret paths to the game as well as boss exploits to the Hangedman and Hermit bosses.
I wouldn't call myself the "best" HotD player (world record is actually about 121K) but for no continues it's great.
Yes, I played this with no continues and default settings. Usually, if you beat the game with no continues, your last digit ends in "0", I believe.
No, but I honestly do not see much a difference between difficulty. 3 lives is the default; I just wanted to play through it like a veteran. I didn't use any continues, but I would LOVE to try this on an actual machine. Only concern I have is the gun condition.
Settings I used for the game on Model 2 Emulator:
- Difficulty: Very Hard
- Initial Life: 1 (up to 5 max lives)
If only I could shoot the oil drum zombies in level 3 and not get hit that much, I'll be at least 100,000 or above...
I left this score at the Dave & Buster's in Duluth, GA. I also have a score of 6.6 million at the D&B's in Sugarloaf Mills a few miles out.

First of all, this is NOT a "silly" game. It was revolutionary for its time (1997/98).
As someone who has played this game to death since 2008, this game really isn't that hard. Now I will admit the deluxe version is a little harder to play as you have to shift your weight to turn the bike, and on most machines, the handlebars can be difficult to turn. Find the smaller standard cabinet.
