Play with 7800 System or Emulation. Any joystick or keyboard is fine!

Pics are encoraged here, however I WILL accept a no pic score.

Anyone can jump in and play a Knockout round game, if they like...

I really wanted to break 100k but maybe later. I am having trouble with round 11 right now.

Hey Sonic, don't sweat it. I don't exaggerate when I claim to be the world's worst platform jumping game player!

Here's my best: 25,160

I'm used to the 5200 version now. Jumping is tricky in this one,
but the moth flying things are much easier to flip over.

1/2 WAY THROUGH MARIO BROS.


roadrunner shows off his Mario skills and races into 1st right away.
bigbee99 a nice score places him 2nd.
Sonic R even with the frustration, got a 3rd spot at the moment.
Gorfy self proclaimed worst platformer is in 4th

3 players with no score recorded yet...

Darrin9999
patbb
Jifremok

Gorfy is currently on the bubble, though... 3 players haven't recorded a score yet,
everyone has 3 1/2 days left to play!

ugh... I just loathe this game! my motivation is almost 0 to play this game... I would love to survive for the next game, Xevious, a game I quite enjoy :)

the jumping in this game is just sloppy as all bloody hell! I feel like I have NO control over Mario's movements and he just walks and jumps where ever... I'll be trying to avoid an enemy or jump and get killed because he would move exactly where I didn't want him... thus ending my game abruptly :mad:

I feel much safer now. I'd feel even more safe though if ice weren't more difficult to deal with than most other games I've played. Nah, I wouldn't change that.

Final Results for Round 5: roadrunner is KING!

Knockout players:


roadrunner - 334,880 1st (Round 5: King)
bigbee99 - 129,600 2nd
Jifremok - 93,340 3rd

Sonic R - 51,090 5th
