there is 7 million 1cc good ending MAME run on YThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqHNakqZZOEsome interesting strategies there but got idea on authenticity
Oh I just absolutley love Macross and grew up with Robotech and collect all the toys and everything. I have my own machine and have played the hell out of this game.
There is a fair amount of strategy to get multipliers and keep them for as long as possible in 'A' mode, finding all the medals, Minmay Dolls and Fish Heads as well as having an understanding of when 'A' icons and 1-ups will appear. I have managed to 1CC through the first loop, but you do have to play through a second loop to get a proper ending and it is pretty tough by that point, it throws everything at you relentlessly. You can also attempt to get through this game with out shooting any enemies, the bosses will self destruct eventually progressing you to the next level, and if you get through around half way on the 3rd stage without shooting anything, the screen will have too many sprites on screen, glitch out and warp you to level 4.I'd like to get a video of a play through up soon. It's a great game.I hope this will inspire people to have a go and try beat my score.
