This week's game is going to be Ice Climber.

Current Standings:

I'm adding a new stat to the standings. The number in parentheses next to your overall score is the number of rounds in which you have participated. This will serve as the tiebreaker. Therefore, even though 4 players have 9 points and are tied for first based on that metric, Sonic R sits in first because he's participated in 2 rounds instead of 1.


1. Sonic R - 9 pts. (2)
2. RJ - 9 pts. (1)
2. mihcael - 9 pts. (1)
2. patbb - 9 pts. (1)
5. roadrunner - 8 pts. (3)
6. pantherrob82 - 6 pts. (1)
7. ClassicGMR - 5 pts. (3)
8. darthkur - 3 pts. (1)
9. LarcenTyler - 2 pt. (2)
10. Tr3vor - 1 pts. (1)
10. atari1600land - 1 pt. (1)
10. Hitachi - 1 pt. (1)
10. wizardspade80 - 1 pt. (1)
10. Jibbajaba - 1 pt. (1)
10. HatefulGravey - 1 pt. (1)
10. dustfilledhobo - 1 pt. (1)

*9 points are awarded to first place, 6 to second, 3 to third, and everyone else receives 1.*

Either I'm really bad at this game, or it's glitching. :ponder:

I got 3 games in tonight and this is me so far. I will surely be much better by weeks end.

And yes the jumping in this game is hell. Gets real hard when the level is all moving platforms.

I think I've had that problem too, and I don't remember how or if I fixed it.

Takes a lot of time to get there for me at least. I'm not sure I want to try to get higher then that, but I know I will anyway. Stupid games being addictive.

Finally got around to installing Nestopia... and I am never going back to FCE Ultra. Couldn't even run this early title full-speed on full-screen. Nestopia runs it like a champ with room to spare! :)

I'll be playing more but for now here's my initial score entry:

I have found some ways to point press that get me in the range of 1 million, but that isn't the nature of this thread so I haven't posted those scores. Running right through the game I can only get just about 100000, but in the same time point pressing I can get about 850000.

Took yesterday off now I'm going to go see if I can get more then my 118k on a legit run.

I've been practicing and I finally got to the 9th mountain. Also, the 8th bonus stage (jack-o-lanterns) wasn't that hard, but it was worth 20,000 points!!!!!! Anyway, here is my score. Not the best in this thread, but the best I've done so far.

Score: 80330 pts.
