ROLL UP AND PLAY SOME SHMUPS MOTHERFUCKERS

The 4chan Caravan is a score attack competition based around caravan shmups: shooting games that are designed to last 2-5 minutes. The caravan will select a shmup, and for one or two weeks, everyone can compete and submit their scores to get themselves on the leaderboards. There's no limit on submissions, so post a score the moment you've got one. Can you claw your way to the top?

In honor of this being our first edition, we'll start with the very first game Hudson ever ran in their caravan: 1986's Star Soldier for the NES. We'll be using a romhack that adds a 2 and 5 minute time limit (along with a button mashing minigame for you Takahashis out there). AUTOFIRE IS ALLOWED for this game (except for the Rapid Measurement, obviously). Get the game here: http://www.skrybe.net/stuff/Star%20Soldier%20Special%20Version%20(J).zip

Post a screenshot of the title screen with your score when submitting. For convenience's sake, quote the OP and format your post to have the category and score first and then your name, like so:

2 MINUTE

The deadline is February 15. Good luck!

That's why I specified it being a caravan shmup. Doing a 3 or 5 minute game seems a lot easier to jump into than needing to learn and practice a full on 20-40 minute game.
