Cool!! You have a prize in mind?

 

Hi Owen

 

I'm suspecting you have edit authorities to post #1. Could you please:

 

1. Have the title of the thread reflect what game is on and for which month and year it covers, maybe something like: High Score Competition, February 2017, Tetris.

 

2. Update and move the list with previous games and winners closer to the top of post #1. It will be easier to choose new games.

 

Thank you so much.  ;)

For some reason, I havr played at least 10 times and I keep getting 4,000. Maybe I should RTFM... Sometimes I fall into.the blue, and sometimes it lets me bounce on the blue and onto the next tile.

:) The music is great though... I have heard it in my sleep the last couple nights.

You need to press fire to jump, watch the ball and time it right so that it's at its highest halfway through your jump :)

And the blue doesn't automatically kill you. It hurts you a bit at a time till you die :)

Now I got it.  :)  I had the jump/timing thing going for me, but I keep getting surprised by the different effects the mystery blocks have on me.  I do not like the green-ball 'slow' effect...  Throws me off my game.

 

 

Little better this time.  :)  This game is addicting!

This is cool. I just got my Flashrom99 working and one of the first games I tried was Bouncy. I'm damned impressed, the graphics are fantastic and the music is catchy too.

I'll have to give it a shot with the gamepad that I just built and see how it goes!

I can't seem to get much better than my earlier score...

With the month coming to a close here, I will make more attempts... This kind of game is not my forte, but surely I can do better than 7k!

Let's see some scores, folks!

Unfortunately my system is packed for the move Thursday so I can't post a score but as soon as I get to the new house I'll post my score even tho it'll be too late, unless we get another entry you might win this one Opry

That is laughable. My petty, meager, amateur skills... If you guys don't beat me, I will subject you all to Star Trek SOS.

THAT is a promise.

Gah, I'll try under emulator but I suck with keyboard. On real iron I can almost go forever :)

I actually caused Rasmus to up the Score counter so it wouldn't roll as soon lol.

Maybe keyboard is my issue here... I cannot seem to consistently time the direction and fire button to get where I want to go.
