The Community Resogun Challenge

[ Edited ]
124 Replies 3,879 Views edited 02-01-2014

 

RESOGUN is one of the first titles to feature in PlayStation Plus at the launch of PS4, meaning that it is available for free to all Plus subscribers during the offer period. However, if for some reason you choose not to try PS Plus, RESOGUN is also available to purchase on the PlayStation Store.


RESOGUN is a truly mesmerising experience and has lots of subtle tricks to master in order to achieve the best possible score.  Style and technique are happily married in RESOGUN, and with this in mind we have a variety of challenges over the next 4 weeks to test your skills to the limit.

 

With each challenge we set, we shall reward the best five with PS Plus codes and also reward the five runner ups with some PS4 swag. :BigGrin:

 

Week 1 Challenge:
13th December - 19th December

 

Survive as long as you can without shooting.
 

LEVEL: 1 (Acis)

SHIP: Any of the three
DIFFICULTY: Veteran

 

  • Choose any of the ships and start the first level on Veteran difficulty.
  • Do not fire a weapon, use overdrive, drop any bombs or use Boost.
  • Your sole aim in this challenge is to simply survive as long as you can without getting hit.  The longer the duration the better.
  • Use the "Share" feature and publish the video of your attempts on Facebook and then post the video location of the video in this thread. **Make sure to set the video on Facebook as public or we can't see it.**
  • The top 5 successfully surviving the longest and shared a video in this thread will be named winners and second 5 will be named as the runner-ups.

If you get hit, make sure to press "Share" to capture the video straight away (which can help gauge the time duration survived as an aid to you and to us) then restart level and try again.

 

As Spain, Italy and France are unable to participate unfortunaetly it means we can only offer 3 winners for each remaining challenges, but still 5 runner ups don't worry.

 

Week 2 Challenge:
20th December - 26th December

 

Obtain the highest score in 'Veteran Mode' on Acis Planet.
 

LEVEL: 1 (Acis)

SHIP: Any of the three
DIFFICULTY: Veteran

 

  • Choose any of the ships and start the first level on Veteran difficulty.
  • Your sole aim in this challenge is to score as high as you can before you lose all your lives or you complete the level.
  • Use the "Share" feature and publish the screenshot of your highest score attempts on Facebook and then post the image of your score in this thread.
  • The top 3 users with the highest score and proof shared in this thread will be named winners and second 5 highest will be named as the runner-ups.

 

Week 3 Challenge: 
27th December - 2nd January

 

Successfully Juggle 3 Humans
 

LEVEL: 1 (Acis)

SHIP: Any of the three
DIFFICULTY: Experienced

 

  • Choose any of the ships and start the first level on Experienced difficulty.
  • Your challenge is to skilfully master the Throw Human button so you can juggle the humans – three at a time.
  • Use the "Share" feature and publish the video of your attempts on Facebook and then post the video location of the video in this thread. **Make sure to set the video on Facebook as public or we can't see it.**
  • The first three to post proof of successfully juggling three humans and then shared the video footage as proof in this thread will be named winners and second 5 will be named as the runner-ups.

Here is my attempt that I just about managed :smileyvery-happy:

 

 

 

Week 4 Challenge: 
3rd January - 9th January

 

Gain the Platinum Trophy
 

LEVEL: n/a

SHIP: n/a
DIFFICULTY: n/a

 

  • This is a simple Trophy challenge.  Gain all the trophies including the Platinum in RESOGUN.
  • Doesn't matter if you already have the Platinum trophy or have just gained it, the first three to post proof of their platinum trophies in the competition threads will win and the next five will be the runner ups.
