One Credit Contest #22: [Mike Tyson's] Punch-Out!!

#1

Post by mushroom » Wed Nov 14, 2018 2:42 pm

Hello and welcome to the One Credit Contest!! It's a competition to see who can get the farthest in a game on a single credit. Our game this week, chosen by myself, is Punch-Out!! for the NES!

Image

The rules:

-NES/Famicom version only
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-US or Japanese version is acceptable
-Mike Tyson or Mr. Dream version are both acceptable
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable
-No continuing/rematching. If you lose a fight, that's it!

Simply post your score in the following form:

Code: Select all

Name - Opponent - Time
This particular contest is slightly higher maintenance than the other ones, in that you need to keep track of your time. Sorry, but there's no other really feasible tiebreaker and I really want us to play this game! Using the stopwatch that's almost certainly on your phone is one easy solution.

IMPORTANT!!!
=====================================================
Time starts when you press "start" on the title screen, and stops when Mario says KO/TKO either because you got knocked out or Mike Tyson/Mr. Dream got knocked out. "Opponent" should be the opponent you died on, or "Clear" if you beat the game. Time should be down to the second at least (e.g., "10:47") but if you want to be more detailed, that's fine.
=====================================================




A screen shot is optional. Just don't cheat. There's not a lot at stake here :P

I will maintain a leader board in this post, and about one week from now the winner will be decided. Progress is determined by stage, then time. The winner gets to choose our next game.

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. mushroom (Level 10) - Mike Tyson - 43:25.84
2. Valigarmander (Level 8) - Piston Honda 2 - 17:52
3. Marilink (Level 5) - Great Tiger - 13:31
You may post new scores as often as you wish. Have fun!

P.S. If anyone has any trouble obtaining or running the game, please let me know! I will be glad to help!

I'm currently working on bringing back the awesome overall level system that A.I. came up with back when he was mainly running the contest so everyone has a reason to participate, regardless of skill level! So look out for that shortly.

mushroom - Mike Tyson - 43:25.84

whoops I remembered this game better than I thought I would! game is actually pretty easy, each boxer basically has 1-3 things they do, each with a simple counter.

I swear I haven't played this in years! I wasn't trying to stack the contest in my favor, I genuinely didn't think I'd hit Mike on my first attempt. Maybe I should've held my entry back for a while, not that it's hard to beat if you know what to do.

I should probably look up some of the tactics instead of just making it up as I go

It is greatly encouraged to look up guides, videos, etc. when doing these contests considering they only last a week. I'm also glad to divulge specific tips if asked.

I've never made it past Bald Bull.

But I did watch a GDQ run of this the other week, which will surely propel me to victory.

Valigarmander - Piston Honda 2 - 17:52

This is certainly the furthest I've ever made it.

i won by decision on piston honda 2 the last time i played lol. he's just so hard to knock down three times in a single round. lotsa stamina and not many opportunities to hit him

@Marilink gets +15 exp!
@I REALLY HATE POKEMON! , despite liking the original post, did not participate, and thus does not get any exp!

I made it past Bald Bull, so I guess that's enough of an accomplishment.

I'm rather liberal with the like button haha. I'm more into shooters and platformers than this kinda stuff.

If Galaga counts can we play Galaga Tekken? I think it's the same game but spiced up with Tekken characters. It's lazier than your common ROM hack but it's better than looking at the regular, boring ship.
