I voted for Brave Blade, for whatever that's worth, haha.
Heck yeah, Brave Blade represent! Battleaxe shaped spaceship, that changes into a robot swinging an axe, lol.

I can see why people wouldn't like it though. Medal juggling is going to rub some the wrong way, thankfully the way this game implements it bothers me way less than it does in Twinbee/Parodius.

You guys better hope Bakraid doesn't win because, if so, I am going to destroy you all - on a mother-fucking Arcade1Up machine nonetheless.

Prepare for the ultimate humiliation.

Let’s go Bakraid! I love Dangun too but the scoring sucks.

I feel the game got ruined for me when I realized you have to let the people bounce from the bottom of the screen to get more points.

Are any of these on switch? No MAME option here.

Also, off-topic, is there a Deathsmiles Switch thread anywhere?

All tied up. If we end with a tie, is there a standard for how we handle that?

I've got a few ideas:
Flip a coin
Do a one-day runoff vote between the top two
Do two shmups

We’ve done both winners before but it’s your month, run it like you have a pair…

I've got a pair of WINNERS! take that however you like ;)

In all seriousness, how I want to run it is to find a consensus. But easiest way to do that is probably to let folks play both.

Adding threads now

Correct me if I'm wrong, but to my knowledge there is no score advantage to letting the disco men bounce off the bottom of the screen. In fact there is a max number of disco men on screen at a time so it's advantageous to pick them up quickly
