Top 10 Neo Geo Games

The Future is now. SNK's Neo Geo was an arcade and home platform with unparalleled parity. What it looked, sounded, and played like in the arcade, is what it looked, sounded and played like at home. It was simply unheard of. This episode we look at my favorite game for the platform.

Episode Notes:

1. Games captured from MAME.

2. This list was originally 40 games long. Trimming it was brutal.

3. I consolized my MVS long before there were guides online to do so. It's gone through a few revisions and rebuilds, but the original board is still going strong.

4. The first arcade cab I ever owned was a Neo Geo MVS.

5. I owned a respectable AES and MVS collection once upon a time, but abandoned it once it became clear the market simply was too expensive for me to compete.

This was a tough one, but RNG reigns supreme. Also, I have trouble with the guys who run backwards, lol! This score is currently 6th on HAMSTER's leaderboard as of March 1, 2018 and the 3rd featured game on NintendoLife's Weekly High Score Challenge.

A Caravan is a special timed mode (usually 3 minutes or 5 minutes) where the goal is to score as much points as possible.

Shock Troopers (Valley Route) [Neo Geo Longplay] - SEGA Kidd

Developer: Saurus
Year Released: 1997
Character Used: Milky (Lone Wolf)

Shock Troopers pits the players against a mighty terrorist group who are holding a girl hostage, in order to force her grandfather to surrender a powerful drug which will enable the terrorists to control the minds of the grandfather's soldiers and create a huge, unstoppable army.

Shock Troopers is a multi-directional scrolling shoot-em-up for one or two players that builds upon the foundations laid by Capcom's 1985 classic, Commando and also borrows heavily from Commando's sequel, 'Mercs. As well as enemy troops, players must contend with tanks, choppers and asorted military vehicles, and must also be careful to avoid any of the landmines that litter the levels. Extra weapons and health can be picked up from destroyed enemy vehicles, as well as being found in enemy supply crates. Shock Troopers is effectively three games in one as players can chose one of three different routes; each made up of different levels. The game also offers greater variety of gameplay than other of the genre; with levels having the players travel on the back of fast moving vehicles, climbing a rock face etc.

Shock Troopers Neo Geo on Nintendo Switch

This is Shock Troopers a Nintendo Switch download of a Neo Geo game running on the Nintendo Switch. This shows all three routes played out in full. It's best played with the D pad on the 'controller' rather than the analogue sticks as it feels more precise (personal opinion)

Shock Troopers Valley Route 1CC Lonly Wolf - Big Mama (60 FPS)

Praise be to Big Mama!

Just so we are clear, this is a perfect video game. There is literally not a thing wrong with it. A true 10 out of 10, a classic that never was because of how popular Metal Slug became hiding this gem in the dirt. Metal Slug is great but this game is far better!

Released by Saurus in 1997 this was a Neo-Geo run and gun with 8 different characters. They have typical stats like health/speed/power/bombs.

This was a playthrough using Big Mama in Lonly Wolf mode, which they misspelled :clap In Team Mode, you get 3 different characters so you can take every situation the right way. Big Mama fuckin rules so I used a solo game which gives you 3 lives of the same character.

Basic gameplay functions are shoot, dodge, bomb and change character. If you hold the shot button, you lock your direction which is really slick shit and basically a perfect way to get around being able to move and deal with enemies.

The scoring system is great too. Shooting enemies only gives a small number of points, but if you get close and melee them, they will drop various power ups, health items, but most likely a 30,000 point gem. That is a great way to balance risk and reward and keeps the game exciting.

There are 3 different routes to take in the game and each has 5 stages, then the final mission which is the same regardless. Lots of variation and 8 different endings depending on the character.

Best of all is the dodge system. You are totally invincible while dodging and you can dodge whenever you want. Nothing in this game is bullshit thanks to the combat roll. You can even do jump rolls while climbing ladders :orgasmic

Definitely one of my favorite games I've played in this little series, this game is 100% air tight. A very rare game that I can't find a chink in the armor. Perfection!

Anyways, played in Mame with a Qanba Q2, no cheats. Not a great score or playthrough, but a 1CC regardless :)
