    What setting do you use for your options? I usually go normal, but I think roll is pretty fun.

    incredibly hard game. if i remember correctly, it comes to a point where the enemy ships move way to fast for you to respond.

    I never beat Grindstormer; I could never get past this fucking boss:

    I suck.

    I hope I'm not spreading misinformation here but...

    I'm pretty sure V-V's (which is accessible on the US genesis cart) power up system is more intuitive than grindstormer's.

    Also, I'm pretty sure the port is harder than the AC original.

    If you "suck", there are some measures you can take to remedy this problem

    Yeah, the Genesis version has both the Grindstormer/V-5 variations on it with the two different power-up systems. Both were workable, but I preferred the Gradius style approach.

    I still have my Genesis Grindstormer cartridge, but I didn't feel like digging through a bunch of cardboard boxes to find it, so I fired up the ROM last night instead. Damn, that game is even harder than I remember! It took many tries, but I got to, and beat, that third boss, but, I had to resort to using save states to accomplish it, so I didn't do it legitimately. Frankly, I'm impressed younger me ever made it that far without cheating. I've completed a lot of shooters over the years, but Grindstormer/V-5 is definitely beyond my abilities.

    I can only say that you're better than me. Without game genie, I am only able to barely barely pass the second boss. Just thinking someone going further than that is awesome IMO!!^_^

    Are these the Game Genie codes you're using? I have a supposedly complete HTML directory of Sega Genesis Game Genie codes saved on my hard drive, but, when I checked, there wasn't an entry for Grind Stormer, so, I just looked on Google and these are what I found:

    Game Genie
    Enable debug mode settings in the Training selection in options
    RE3A-A60N
    AE3A-A2GW
    AT3A-AAGY
    AJ3A-A480
    JE3A-AE02

    Note: During gameplay, pressing C skips to the next stage. While paused, press right to modify ship, press left to modify speed, press up to increase progress in stage, and press down to decrease progress in stage. Use controller 2 buttons A and B to add points.

    You can't expect to just like be good right off the bat. You must learn the game and you are clearly unwilling. Which is fine...but it remains to be seen whether or not the game is "beyond" your abilities.

    Awesome on the futari 1.5 clear

    It took me a really long time myself, I happened to clear it november of last year.

    Stage 3 messed me up...for a long time.

    I've been out of the shoot em up game for a long time but starting to get back into it. Cleared a bunch of Cave crap in the last 2 months, mostly just 1-ALL scrub clears with no scoring but whatever, I'm enjoying it:

    DonPachi (Type A)
    DoDonPachi (Type C)
    DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu 1.5 (Type B)
    Mushihimesama (Original)
    Deathsmiles (Rose)
    Ketsui (Tiger)

    Will take a Cave break and finally clear arcade Raiden 1 (I've done it before but I want a run without the damn MAME glitches showing up).

    After that, I'm probably going to go at Progear, another game I've wanted to clear for a long time.

    Thanks ASID! Yea stage 3 gave me huge problems as well, the pill bugs with the spread and the pill bugs rolling downwards spitting out the bullets was giving me issues for awhile.

    Nice clear KP!

    Working on futari 1.5 myself right now, and yeah the second half of stage 3 is when I start to fall apart. I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of playing more to memorize the route better, but the spread easily traps me.

    Took some time this weekend to try something new, Gun Nac. This game is so generous with extends I think I ended with about 15 lives left. Overall a fun 8-bit shooter.

    Eh... Galaga. With some questions unanswered. Does it have rank? What are the differences between PS1 & arcade? Got to overcome the sloth and do a proper research. Damn.

    @andsuchisdeath: It's not so much that I'm unwilling, I'm just being honest with myself. Just like the original NES Battletoads, I know that I'm never going to beat Grind Stormer without cheating, no matter how much I practice. Granted, I didn't put much effort in the other day, but I did invest many hours in the game, when I first bought Grind Stormer, back in the nineties--the difficulty was just too much for me then and it still is now. Could I get better at it with more dedication? Maybe, but it's just not worth the aggravation to me when there are so many other more manageable shooters out there I could be playing instead.

    For the past week, I've been enjoying Raycrisis on the G-Net. A friend of mine owned the PlayStation version, and I'd borrow it sometimes. I really liked it back then, and was able to do a 1CC, no miss. Apparently, that was a long time ago. Now I can't get to the third stage on one continue. I'm not sure if the difficulty is higher, or it's just me being older. I'll keep trying, though. I'll get there. I don't have to count my coins or give the disc back.
