I’m running the Japan region Mahou Daisakusen PCB. As for region differences, Google is telling me that the Japanese region is more difficult than the US region - enemies shoot more bullets and those bullets move faster. I haven’t verified that firsthand though.

Be gentle with me. I do believe this is the first time I’ve ever formally participated in one of these.

Ajax - Chitta - 340,730 - PS4

All stupid misses. I’ll try to get another sesh in tomorrow night. This fuckin’ game… Love it. Also, ran out of time while prepping camera for score. I thought it would enter the X in AJX for me as long as I was on it when time ran out. ROOKIE MOVE BRUH.

Japanese is MUCH harder.

No idea what version or versions are included in the PS4 edition.

Also people playing on PCB must note that if you change EPROMS, the title screen and dialogues change. But in order to actually change region (and therefore, the difficulty) you must set the jumpers accordingly.

Well, you picked up a hell of a game to start with (y)(y)

I'm no expert by any means, but this is one of the few games i can 1cc. If you and others want a small advice, try to stick with Chitta and "H" shot (it's the one with the flames) for the entire game. It may not be the best for scoring, but it makes your life a lot easier.

3 years ago, i didn't even knew much about this game, but i saw A LOT of players 1cc the hell out of it at Hey in Akihabara and just fell in love with it :D

I wonder if it's worth adding which version you're playing to your score entries, in that case, like so:

Name-Character-Score-Platform-Version

Thoughts? Edit: For that matter, wouldn't it be worth potentially creating a leaderboard for both versions?

As far as I know, Mahou Daisakusen on PS4 only includes the JP version. I would be interested in trying Sorcer Striker to see the differences in difficulty.

Is this the right game for PS4?

You actually have to get it from the JP store. I don't believe it's on the US shop. That link is DLC for Darius Burst. I'm not exactly sure what it's all about.

Let me grab the link to the listing on the JP store real quick. I'll post it here when I find it. If you need help setting up a JP PS4 account, I'm happy to help you do that too.

Edit:

Here we are: Mahou Daisakusen

Also, Play Asia is a great place to get the funds to actually buy the game. They will send you a code almost immediately after payment. You can purchase a code here: PSN ¥5,000 Card

Edit: How do people normally do this, a single post which they update as they get better scores, or a new post each time? If it’s the former, I’m sorry for spamming you all.

Speaking of coins, it seems like once you power up your main shot to a certain point, the difficulty jumps up quite a bit. Maybe this happens at multiple coin amounts, not too sure. Seems like this could factor into some strategies, possibly.

Had a jam last night, shit was rough. Like I forgot how to play the game or something.

Woke up fresh today and got a decent sesh in.

I can't believe I never put much time into this game before, it's super rad! I've played Kingdom Grandprix and Dimahoo quite a bit, but never really sank my teeth into this one.

I've gotta say, it actually may be my favorite game in the series! Figured I'd post a score now that I've made first extend.

Really glad you liked it. People who know me knows that i'm always preaching about this game. Such an underrated gem.

I had never given this one a fair shake before. Just played a few credits tonight, and REALLY enjoyed it!
