My New High Score: 114,100

Great score!  I'm going to try more later this week. 

Every time we have a TG-16 high-score contest, I find myself enjoying this console far more than I ever expected.  This game is so much fun.  I love the bright colors and fast gameplay.

YESS!! I've felt that way about the TurboGrafx-16 and the TurboDuo from the very first time I played them. Sometimes it can feel a little anemic next to a Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo, but there are so many great games and it feels like an NES pumped up to the max! I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying the unappreciated world of TurboGrafx

I want you guys to beat my score! Nobody wants to pin the tail on their own donkey at their own birthday party. I hope you guys keep playing and leave my score in the dust. That was a great pop-up stream @nosweargamer, I've really enjoyed your livestream events lately and it's cool that you're covering our High Score Squad Challenges :nintendo_mario_1up:

Now that everybody's had some time to play Bomberman '93 what are your thoughts on the game, and on the TurboGrafx-16 in general? How does Bomberman '93 compare to other games in the series? How does Bomberman '93 and the TurboGrafx-16 compare to the Nintendo Entertainment System?

Haha that's great! You'll have to give us updated pics soon 🙂

I'll try to hit 20k next. 

Keep working on your strategy @RickR it's more puzzle than action. There's a lot of strategy with bomb placement, power-ups, etc.

 

One strategy I use that works for me but not for everybody:
I'm careful in the beginning to only detonate blocks that I need to move out of my way. I don't just blow everything up on the screen and let the little buggars run wild. My strategy has been to keep them trapped in their little spaces, and "snipe" them one by one. I try to keep them compartmentalized and not let them run free. If they are in a tight space they're more easily blown up by a single bomb, and their path is predictable. Once they escape their little compartment, or the "maze" area, they can roam free and you lose the ability to predict their behavior or box them in.

TWO IN A ROW! Congratulations to high score legend @nosweargamer on his second win in a row, and on becoming our new TurboGrafx-16 Bomberman '93 Squad Champion! No Swear blew it up with his stellar score of 126,700 points, landing himself the top spot in our Final Standings! NSG live-streamed his high score performance in front of an audience on YouTube, and all of his viewers got to watch him win. WAY TO GO @nosweargamer! And a big congratulations to everybody on all those incredible scores across the board! I hope Bomberman '93 was a fun game and a good reason to pull out the TurboGrafx-16.

Nuts, Feb 28th came way too fast.  I'm going to keep playing this one because it's a lot of fun. 

This is EXACTLY the reason we created the Scoreboard! It's not just another Twin Galaxies, it's a way for us to continue our favorite High Score Squad Challenges over a long period of time. I hope you'll keep playing, @RickR, you're very good with strategy and I think something will "click" for you and you'll do very well at this game.

This is was a blast to play.  One of those games you tend to gravitate back to all the time.  

So glad to hear it @datafry I hope you'll continue to join us for High Score Squad Challenges!
