    For those who want MN tips, I wrote a mini novel on page 2 here http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showth...utation-Nation!

    This is just what worked for me, there are always other ways...

    First try this month:

    Jeneki - 109,000 - Stage 2

    I'm pretty sure I did better than that back when we used to do beatemup of the month. Definitely will need more plays.

    Haha, yeah. So I guess I have a goal this month.

    Also switching to 2p side because he's way cooler.

    Edit: found an interesting farm point on the first stage, with the part with the whip arms guy and dogs. If you avoid fighting the whip arm guy he'll summon more dogs to kill. He stops after 2-3 extra waves, but it's a nice score bump.

    A bit better:

    Midboss smoked me. Huge thanks to ASID, your tips are what got me through the stage 2 boss, she was my wall the past few days.

    A bit more practice and I may be able to give Rich a threat for top spot.

    Stage 2 boss is a pain, I'll save the supers for that, and she can knock you out of combos. The biggest kick in the face with this game is you don't get health refills after the stage ends.

    NG Game of the Month March 2018- Mutation Nation




    383200 Stage 4-1

    Finally cleared Stage 3, those damn flies are a pain.


    Edit: Iím clearing Stage 3 on each run now, and Stage 4 seems very doable. Better get some more attempts in Rich, Iím gonna take that top score.

    My neo candy should be up and running today. I've been on Galuda, but I've still been practicing on this. I highly doubt you're going to get this top spot from me that easily....

    I feel like itís starting to click for me, started using supers instead of hoarding them and itís made a world of difference.

    Not me, Iím still struggling on stage 2. I agree that more supers on the midbosses would probably help my case.

    Minor improvement:

    Holy shit, great tips, the "fast combo" is the truth, totally changed the way I play the game. Also nice to have a power ranking for the specials, thanks for that write up. I'm slightly surprised there isn't more to the fighting system than that.

    I was able to make it a ways into Area 2 thanks to the tips (yes, I suck), but unfortunately my CRT's overscan crops out most of the score.

    Unfortunately, my cart has some problems, it resets before you see the title screen/attract mode/high score table (see my other thread). Unless there's some other way to get to it. I'll try hooking it up to a different screen if I get a chance.

    779600 - Made it to the stage 5 boss and got destroyed. If you can get past the first part of Stage 4 it feels like it gets easier (except the boss fights)
