Let’s get some puzzle action happening. I know some of you are beast mode on this game.

MVS defaults, 1 credit, on Survival Mode.

I just played the cpu mode and only got 1500 for a score. Man I'm terrible at puzzle games, I'll give it a good try this month though.

I’m not sure if cpu mode can be spammed for score, if not we can do a table for it too.

Edit: Mad respect for anyone who can beat Black Pierrot on cpu mode


Way back in the day I used to be able to get to 18-20 on survival but I haven’t played it hardcore like that in years.

Should probably specify what language you're on as well. USA is a lot easier than Japan.

Nice surprise this month! In Challenge Mode, the choice of the character is decisive. Using secret charas should be excluded from the competition.

Ugh this game gets me in the same spot everytime. Been playing for hours. Just a hair past Panda on US.

I'm not sure what's going on, but my score table is acting wonky now, it doesn't do an attract mode and only shows I guess the timed score? So I gotta snap a pic right after I end a run. I'm going to continue using JP mode.

Panda, I would clear the backup ram and clean/re-insert the cart.

Good catch on the region differences. I have recently been playing Money Idol Exchanger a lot, but I'm basically ass at puzzle games.

Lol, no. that's the level I got to, not the difficulty I played on. I ain't that hardcore.


Lmao, O well that's my best score anyways lol


You have to wait awhile for the score board to show up. Sometimes two tile screen run throughs.

I'm not 100%, but I am pretty sure they have different [starting] patterns in the puzzle. Similar to how they affect your opponent in vs, but instead you're picking your own fate.

I like me some MDIII. I tried this last night - and man, I can't break 37k either. As soon as it gets to level 8 the drop speed and bubbles start to kick my ass.

Also - I tried 'easy' mode and now have an 11k score at #1 -- where do you get that full-screen score display? I'll switch to Japanese and give that a shot later. Cycling through the attract mode shows the computer doing some scary-fast combo's (or 'reactions').

For now:

Idk I really don't trust this score I reset the game afterwords and was stuck at the normal 37k mark. Don't post this score.

Was the board on us or eur? Looks like my scores from EUR carried over on to the jp setting on the unibios and look massive (100k plus) next to the jp scores.
