Ooof.. I don't remember, actually. Smile

The first Zanac, the original one, when I was in primary school, I actually skipped a night before going to school, was awake the whole night to finish it because I was 'in the zone'! Big smile

Actually, from once and around Area 8, I think Zanac-Ex becomes pretty hard and I do not even remember if I could beat the game without having to use continues.. shame on me.. Eek!

Keep in mind that we can easily fake (high-)scores in this age of emulators, MS Paint and...

And to answer your question - I must have played Zanac-Ex from top to bottom, without cheating ofcourse, at least 5 times.

Its direct follow-up, Aleste, I have finished at least 20 times in my life, without using the contine option.
Actually, I did it last week, since I own the original cartridge anyway, so why not play it. Wink

Ofcourse Aleste is like 10 times easier than Zanac-Ex.

Do you really think Zanac-Ex is easier than Aleste?
I think it's one of the more hard ones, actually.

If I may say so, in the line of Compile-shooter evolution:

  • * Exa Innova
    * Final Justice
    * Guardic
    * Zanac
    * Zanac-Ex
    * Aleste
    * Aleste Gaiden
    * Aleste 2

Well then I'd say Aleste is by far the most easy one.
Aleste Gaiden is ridiculously easy, too (and short), but that was just a 'bonus' game anyway.

Aleste 2 has three difficulty modes; you can modify it when you boot disk B or C with the [SELECT] key held down.

Hi, I finished it many times, here's one of my scores:

12,426,560 points, took 1:26 hours
www.homeactionreplay.org/search.php?game=3487&tourney=24

But in my opinion, playing Zanac-Ex and ranking by score is not the best idea (it is easy to leech points in many places).

Excellent game anyway, I play it since always along with the rest of Pony Canyon and Compile games.

    * Final Justice
    * Guardic
    * Zanac
    * Zanac-Ex
    * Aleste
    * Aleste Gaiden
    * Aleste 2

Don't forget the 3rd game in the "Final Justice" series (the 2nd is "Guardic" ), that's "Blaster Burn", one of the monthly games which came into the DiscStation Magazine. It's pretty curious... it would be cool if somebody could join all the parts to make an standalone version Smile

Well then I'd say Aleste is by far the most easy one.
Aleste Gaiden is ridiculously easy, too (and short), but that was just a 'bonus' game anyway.

"Aleste Gaiden" must be one of the games I've finished the most... it's always nice to watch it all again Wink

Aleste 2 has three difficulty modes; you can modify it when you boot disk B or C with the [SELECT] key held down.
I've only finished it with the standard difficulty mode.

I've never finished "Exa Innova", "Final Justice" neither "Guardic"... and about "Zanac", there's a special version pretty much harder than the normal one.
