I will say Susume looks WAY better than the couple of their games I'd played. You'll have to let us know how it is!
So I got my Susume Mile Smile board and have put a little time into it, credit feeding and single credit runs. I can say, for the price I paid, this is an extremely solid game. I think it’s obscurity is what keeps the price down, because I could see it being more cash if it were on a cartridge based arcade platform. It’s not an easy game by any means. The gameplay is simple, but enemies in later stages like to huddle around your location or the remaining items you have to pick up. I’ve found myself pushing the stage timer close to 0 being as careful as possible later on in the game. The visuals are well drawn and have a cute charm. The different worlds have good variety, and the music is catchy for some of them. The more I play it, the more I enjoy it. I highly recommend it, wether you try it out in your emulator of choice or decide to seek out the PCB.
Also, the board remembers your highest score even when you continue, which rocks. That’s something I’ve seen on Cave boards, but I’m surprised Fuuki added that. Such a nice touch.
