Time for some phaser action for episode 4 of The SMS Quest! Tough game this one, I haven't managed to finish it without using a continue, and so far have only finished it twice! This score was accomplished by making it to the last level, but I didn't manage to get the bonus round points, so there's an easy 20,000 points to be had there ;). Game on!!!
Well, I don't own this one so I found a ROM to give it a go. Seems like a fun game, but unfortunately I won't be trying a for a high score with this one... I'm using Kega Fusion to emulate and I can't aim for a damn. 1. The cursor moves WAY too fast and can't be slowed down 2. The gun shots never hit where the cursor is pointing. You can't even get used to aiming a little off, because it is and it isn't consistently off aim, like if I shoot at the left side of the screen the bullets go way to the left of my crosshair but if I shoot at the far right of the screen its only slightly off to the left but also above the crosshair and its like that for EVERY phaser game I tried, depending on where you shoot on screen it's always off the same way, but it seems like the whole screen has it's own aiming issues... and since Fusion hasn't been updated in a while I guess this is a bug that's not gonna be worked out... maybe Meka emulates the Phaser better...
But back to the game, it's like a fast paced Gangster Town. I like it.
Whichever difficulty you want is fine I suppose, really hard to beat that last boss on the difficulty I played it on though! I didn't manage to beat it without continuing either :). I don't think difficulty affects the score, I just prefer playing on standard or higher difficulties, never been one for easy going ;D
