Touhou Nekokayou: Scarlet Weather Archive in Japanese Red #113

First Previous Random Next Latest

Characters: Iku Nagae, Ran Yakumo, Yukari Yakumo

So, yeah. The Pong game in create.swf (Remember that!? It was the first time I used the "SPOOOOOOON" sfx!) got upgraded. I also didn't notice that Yukari and Ran were now KirbyM's upgraded versions in the pong game until I went to test it.

Tonight's comic was mildly infuriating to make because I recently got a new computer, and I haven't yet gotten used to all of Windows 7's quirks. But I got rid of the latest generation of "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" immediately after I was finished with this comic, so we're probably good to go!

Transcript

  1. ("End of Gensokyo" scene. Iku is on defense, with two Pong paddles; Ran has just slipped past her defenses, setting off the barrier-shield-thingy from the pong game.)
    SFX: SPOOOOOOON
    Iku: Ouch!
  2. (Over to Yukari's side of the playing field; Ran comes out of a gap.)
    Iku: (off-panel) ... what!? *small* powerups!?
    Yukari: Oh, yes, you didn't die until you were at full power and then you bombed a bit!
    Ran: mutter ... Yeah, in the new version of the pong game, you only get small ones when you die.
  3. (Ran takes up her position in front of Yukari.)
    Iku: (aside, off-panel) I guess that explains why I was getting so many powerups from everything *else* ...
    Yukari: Wait, hang on ... That was your third death, wasn't it? Why haven't I won!?
  4. (Back to Iku.)
    Iku: It's because I got a 1up from getting over 1000 points!
    Yukari: (off-panel) D'OH!
    Ran: (off-panel) Oh, so *that's* what that "powerup" noise before was.

All Touhou characters are © Team Shanghai Alice and/or ZUN; create.swf is ⑨ KirbyM with help from Thefre. "Sakura petals" brush in main/4koma logo was made by Kisara Girl. "Falling leaves" brush in 60-Years logo came with Photoshop.

A comic about this was an inevitability, really. Not quite how I pictured it, but whatev.

Also, back when the game was updated, I managed to win for the first time. Walfas-Yukari is a SORE loser.

Ozimul

This is the most excellent pong game I have ever seen.

Orcinus

Hm, my highest score was 5028 in that new pong one.

Duran

How many times do you have to beat her to actually win? I got around 4 or so before losing.

Stage 1: Just Ran.
Stage 2: she starts throwing kunai.
Stage 3: she adds Chen, thus making it ridiculously easy since she can't keep track of Chen.
Stage 4: She summons Yuyuko, who is in charge of blocking Chen.
Stage 5: Youmu appears and zooms towards you.
Final Stage: the same, except with lots more kunai.

Orcinus

Got to stage 5 before game over.

Stage 3 has your point counter going up every second you stay alive. The counter stops and goes back to rely on point items on stage 4.

I notice that on Stage 4, knocking out Chen does damage, but it doesn't happen on stage 3.

Centari Klaar

Wow finally beat Yukari haha...
Not to spoil the ending but... I wonder if that was Mokou's Truck

-ED

What is your choice of replacement for windows' Picture and Fax Viewer? I'm getting sick of the one in Win7, too slow and clunky for my netbook.

Kimiko Muffin

I stole MS Paint from my copy of XP, and put it in the Program Files (x86) folder. Also, IrfanView.

Beta Maxis

That is a long-a** game of pong there. Better call it a draw.
