Here is a high scoring all clear run of the fans favourite Raizing game, Armed Police Batrider.

The playlist for this game is at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=...

Batrider is a vertical shmup from 1998, with amazing looking graphics, and a hugh amount of secrets.

The game has a very clear varible dynamic difficuty, usually called as "Rank" by people inside the shmup scene.
To play the game with maximum starting rank, you reset the game and instantly put in a credit as the attract mode starts, and to play with minimum starting rank, you put the game into test mode, and exit it by pressing Start.
The change of difficulty is clearly noticable, shots are faster and patterns are more dense, also bosses have more health, which can give you more overall score if you can deal with the difficulty.

Suiciding (dropping lives/intentional loss of lives) is a good strategy in this game, to stop the rank being so high. Batrider awards extra lives every 1.5 million points, but it gives you in place of the next power-up or item. This means if you get to the final boss with just under 4.5m (or 3m or even 1.5m) points, then you will not get an extend.

To select the stage order, you can select it on the dip switches, or press A+B together when selecting the course difficulty.
Secret bosses on the final stage are unlocked from Special Power-Ups (which are picked up by dropping 3 of the same power-up type, and then picking the next one)
If you choose the airport as Stage 4, then you will get Envy as a secret boss if you collect a Option Special Power-Up, so this should be avoided!
If you choose the Sewage System as Stage 3, and collect a Shot Special Power-Up, then you will get Sobut as a secret boss. You can see I intentionally get this power up at the start of Stage 2.
The first final boss is worked out on your Stage 2 selection, if you do Sky High as Stage 2, you will always start with Blunt on the final stage.

The wikipedia artical for the game is very detailed and describes a lot about the game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armed_Po...

You should try out the game, it's fun!
