Exerion Description

This is a shoot-em-up game with parallax effects in the background and a nice simulation of inertia in the control of the ship. You have lots of enemies and two kinds of shooting, slow and fast.

Cheats, Tricks and Bugs

BUG: In the challenge stage, if you shoot all 40 aliens you normally get a bonus charge of 60. Sometimes a red hydra comes out during this stage. If you shoot it and all 40 aliens, you get a total of 41. The game seems to fail the test of 'hits=40' and only gives you a bonus charge of 41.
HINT: Try so build your supply of bullets for the fast cannon so it can be used in critical situations.

HINT: To get a high score, if you do not miss any shots your bonus score will keep on doubling to 10000 then reset to 000. When at 10000 miss a shot then bonus score will revert to 5000.

Game Play

In this game you have two weapon systems: one slow double-shot cannon and one fast single-shot cannon. With each enemy hit by the slow cannon you get one shot added to the fast cannon ammunition supply. After each stage there is a challenge stage where you can also build your fast-shot supply.

Cool game, I find the way it moves very frustrating, but fair, and different so therefore interesting. Not much time to play this week, I hope to find time to beat this score on Monday arvo.

One of my all time fav's, maybe because I spent a fair whack of year 11 playing this in the common room instead of attending classes :laugh:

Had a couple tries - I like this game, though I'm not that good at it :D

Especially like the huge pixellated bird/robots, reminds of the good old days of C64 gaming :laugh: The inertia of the ship trying to avoid things can be interesting.

Shudder to think of the winning score on this game - given the mad shmuppaz around here..

I was having a hell of time with this, for some reason the version of MAME I was using would cause the game to reset once I had passed 100,000 and lost a life, One game I had 300,000 + and died and the game reset :realmad::realmad::realmad:

Went back to an earlier version of MAME and now it works!!:)

Nice score DK, Ive got the original board for this one, never really played it though, except to test the board, looking forward to having a bash later in the week.

Are the correct dips lives=3 / Bonus =10,000 / Difficulty=Easy ?

Huge opener :cool:

Can I ask for a tip :)

Should you use both fire buttons at once to get the triple shot most of the time, or just mostly the double shot ?

I mostly use the double shot, I only use the rapid when in trouble . First couple of screens I don't touch the rapid. You will see why ;)

BTW its all in the tips and tricks in the first post:)

Top effort Fringert!!! You know you can hit F12 after the game is over, when you put your initials in.

I know what you mean, any vertical shooter like this one, whenever I get stuck I always go for the Pheonix shield button, in this case all it does is a double shot.

Try and use your double shot as your main shooter so you can stockpile the single shooter, which if you hold down becomes rapid fire. But only use in short bursts,don't use it all at once :067: :018:

I'm sort of the opposite, I keep dying with 100 charges left, so now I'm making myself use it more to stay alive longer.

:redface Most ive ever got on this one, but still finding it a wee bit hard.
Cant load a screenshot once again for f%#*s sake!!!:realmad:

"exerion.bmp:
The Dimension limits for this filetype are 620 x 280. We were unable to resize your file so you will need to do so manually and upload it again. Your file is currently 224 x 320."<<< im thinking this size was acceptable?
Any ideas?

Maybe if you rotate it 90 ?

how come you get .bmp ? screen dump rather than screen shot? (F12)

Just remembered about daylight saving, didn't get much time this week.
gunna have 1 last game if I have time...

Dont know. Im using an old version of mame and when i hit F12 this is what it gives me? It goes into a bmp folder, there's no snap folder.

I just keep dying point pushing :rolleyes, you can achieve big scores if you don't miss anything and use just the normal shot.
Every enemy/wave increases by 100 points every time.

The second screen ( the medium size birds ) I am scoring up to 6000 for every bird, once I finish this screen I have 300000-400000 points this is before the purple ****ers (thats what I call em :laugh:).
It would be quite possible to score 1,000,000 before the game repeats;)

It is all in the tips and tricks on the first post, I have never played this game this way and really puts a whole new dimension on it.
For once its my right arm that is feeling the strain, I bet this game is a good Joystick tester :laugh:


Edit I might put the new game up early, as STFD of this ATM:p Plus I'm getting a bit pissy

Didn't get much time this week only figured out the bonuses tonight, but it's quite hard to stay alive long enough to score decent. Need another week on this one...

Same, really puts a whole new spin on this game, and for years had not worked it out.
No button mashing for this shooter ;)
And should go down as one of the all time classics, as its taken me 20 odd years to realise the bonus's I was missing:lol

Just in case no one realised we are on daylight savings time, as per the rules on time spiel.
So any late score posters do it now as I am collaborating scores mwahhh ha ha, sorry doing my Dr Evil laugh :p

I had never even heard of this until I tested the board I got for $10 :p

Even then I thought, cool a shooter no ones cares about <_<

But after playing it in this MGL & getting some tips from you guys, what a cool little game, how many different sprites are there ? & no notable slowdown when the large phoenix type sprites appear.

Thats the great thing about MGL, you can get mame & the ROMS but until you really get into a game, you don't know what your missing :blink:
