The trouble with tribbles -- er, I mean Amagon.

Man.

Amagon is a tough game.

Not only casually, but doing a score run.

To access Megagon, you have to have the Mega Key + at least 5,000 points, and every time Megagon clears a screen, the remaining energy gets converted into points.

But, if you lose the Megagon transformation before you can clear a screen, you actually lose points when you transform back into Amagon.

Boy.

Does anybody have any tips on scoring high?

My first tip is GIVE UP LEAVE MY SCORE ALONE!!!!

Just kidding. Actually this is a title I keep meaning to come back to but my time to play games lately is severely lacking.

I find generally all enemies are in the same places so with time and patience you can learn the whole game layout and which enemies you can get more point icons out of as you go along.

Using that knowledge also when you become Megagon, make sure you are using the megapunch instead of the wave weapon, as that weapon drains health from Megagon and thus points at the end of the level. Knowing where the enemies are coming from helps you do this successfully.

I know some time ago I saw on YouTube a full run of the game where the player didn't die and it was not a TAS and I think his final score is in the 133,000 point range but he really relies on being Megagon where I like to wait as long as I can before transforming. (Of course he finished the game and I haven't so risk versus reward maybe severely lacking.)

This title definitely comes under the category of "Nintendo Hard"


Good Luck!

Re: The trouble with tribbles -- er, I mean Amagon.

This game is one of the few I remember vividly from when I was a kid. We all wanted to enjoy it but it was so god damn hard. I don't think I knew anyone who could get very far in it. You guys deserve a medal for sticking with it.

Gotta have that NES patience

As a kid I grew up playing a lot of Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man and other such "NES hard" games, so I think I've just naturally developed a tolerance for it?

Or it could be I just wanna beat elrod's score, who knows?

Re: The trouble with tribbles -- er, I mean Amagon.

We didn't have the same problems with Castlevania or MM but yeah Ninja Gaiden was another I remember just giving up on because it was ridiculous.
