Scoring in Golden Axe

For each version of Golden Axe here (Coin-Op, Genesis, Master System) I think the wrong number is being used for the counted score. The game sets a "Total Score" based on enemies killed, but then it uses some formula based on the number of lives used in that playthrough to determine the player's "Strength." That Strength number is technically the true score for the game. That's the number that should be counted when determining the ranking of the players.

Re: Scoring in Golden Axe

I thought that was what was used for the score. It gives you a rank that shows your strength if im not mistaken.

Re: Scoring in Golden Axe

Nope, take a look at the links I posted. The most problematic is the Genesis one. The top rank has a Total Score of 365.0 and a Strength of 151.6, but the 365 is what's listed for the ranking.

365.0 + Verified! + Cleared!

Re: Scoring in Golden Axe

Yes, the calculated Strength should be used as the score. It takes player skill into account, as well as points scored. MARP and TG both use Strength as the score.

There was a discussion about it at MARP years ago: forums.marpirc.net • View topic - Golden Axe : time to debate about scoring on Marp

Re: Scoring in Golden Axe

Agreed. Strength is best scoring to use for competitive play.
