Cheap moves to spam to make the 120K Hi score easier!

I STRUGGLED with this achievement. I finally found a cheap way to do it.

Best character to have is Chang Koehan. He is the big fat guy with the wrecking ball. This dude is SO over powered it's ridiculous! All you have to do is jump at your opponent and hit the X button to stun them. THEN do the move where you swing your ball around in circles at them. I don't know the commands for it but I managed to do it a lot from mashing the X button and forward or maybe rolling from down to forward. I never really figured out how to exactly do it. But I managed to be pretty consistent with it. Keep being very aggressive with this and try to corner them and keep doing this over and over. I have seen one combo from this take anywhere from 1/8 to 1/3 or more of their entire health bar. You could essentially kill your opponent in 3 hits as long as it was a good connection and most of the hits were not blocked. On average I would say it took 1/8 to 1/4 of their health bar away with 1/3 being more rare. The computer gets overwhelmed with this move when it's done over and over. You should be able to win most of the matches with this character and the moves I detailed above. I went from REALLY struggling to not losing a single round until the last guy of the 3rd or 4th match. So I beat like 11 guys in a row the 1st time I tried using this guy. And by the 3rd or 4th match the computer has gotten pretty tough and cheap by then usually. On other play though sometimes their 1st fighter would kill all 3 of mine and would totally destroy me. That was until I figured this out.

The 2nd best character to have is Joe Higashi. He is the dude showing his teeth with the bandanna with the Japanese red sun on it near the top middle. This dude is awesome too. You pretty much do the same thing as above. Jump and your opponent with X to stun and then mash x repeatedly to get them in a 12 hit combo. Works good to do a low kick after this as well since your opponent is usually stunned in a full standing pose and is left close to you after the combo is done. You dont even have to jump and stun with x with this guy but it helps. You can play defensively and try to bait the computer into this 12 hit combo as well. Its not as powerful as the first guy. Probably a full 12 hit combo would take 1/8 of the health bar. Best part about it is how it stuns the computer.

As for the 3rd character I don't have a super strong suggestion but I do have a few. One is the girl named Mature. She has this round house kick that I think is done with forward or back + B. The computer has a hard time reacting to this move. The con with it is that it can be hard to time and get a good rhythm with it. A found this tip from a guy on youtube named "The Hidden Levels". I will post the link to it so you can see how he does it. I found it alright. Sometimes I did well but I think most of the time when it came to the harder matches I had more trouble that not.

You could also try Clark. He has a X mash move that also spams a short combo but then if it connects will also send them flying backwards in flames. Draw back is that if you are fighting a shorter enemy or an enemy that uses more ground attacks you might miss a lot since this move aims high.

There was another character like Clark that had a decent X mash combo that was more horizontal but I can't remember who it was. I think he looked a lot like Clark. Maybe the guy to the left of clark?

You can also try the guy with the baton. He has the glasses and beard and is located in the lower center of the character select screen. But I felt his X mash combo was too open and slow and missed a lot.

Hope this helps. Screw this cheap ass game!
