Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to another gargantual round of our reptilian weekly contest!
Our skilled contestants will face a draconian quest this week, trying to outscore each other at Dragon Spirit!
Here's the rules they will abide to when breathing fiery destruction upon their enemies:
  • You must beat the intro stage without dying (this is the only way to get the true ending to the game and is not hard to do)
  • Play until Game Over
  • Take your picture on the Title Screen
  • If you beat the end boss, hit reset at the end of the credits and your high score will be at the title screen.
  • Any point racking or 1-up loops that may exist in the game are forbidden
  • Highest score wins
  • GENRE: Shooter/Shoot ‘Em Up
The contest ends Sunday, 05/19/19 at 11 PM NA time.  Your user name MUST be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.

Why must you knight errants, out to make a name for yourselves, always pick on us dragons?

Happy mother's day!

does it bother anybody else when points aren’t rewarded for collecting power ups?

Fun game. It's going to be a good week! I never been a fan of big sprites especially in shooters, I always try to keep the whole sprite from touching anything. There is just a small portion of the sprite that will detect a hit.

This was me a few years ago. Now I effing LOVE this game. 

Love when the little dude is standing on Mount Rushmore and turns into a Dragon. Such a badass way to get the game started. 

Really fun game. I love all the Power-Ups and the variety in Boss' is cool. Difficulty is up there but not too hard to prevent beating it legit (with turbo  

And yeah, the story is amazing. One of the first couple times playing it I died in the first level, and became the yellow dragon or whatever. It melted my brain when I realized there were two separate ways you could play, and two separate stories. Albeit the same (and beating it with Blue Dragon is the real way), it was still really cool. 

No Turbo controller (aka NES Advantage?)? I'm out... 

I love (scrolling) shooters but never to I play them without turbo. I got more respect for my thumbs than that. 

Props to anyone rocking this game on an OG controller. Holy shit, that's tough.

Aren't there power ups that give you rapid fire? Just grab them and don't die.

Puuuuuuuuuuhlease.... That's still too much effort. 

Rapid off the hop or I'm done. (also... I wouldn't be able to answer that questions about the power-ups because I've always used turbo, haha)

We played 1943 and Star Force for the contests so we're used to pain.

Silver Surfer is coming up.

There's a game that was definitely a crime to not put in turbo. The enemies take several hits unless you're fully powered up (even then, some are still multiple hit kills.) It's a shame, because the game is otherwise good.

Now that is a nice idea for the contest tournament.
