Wow! I just woke up to the sound of Christmas spirit! So many replies so far!
I'll be updating the leaderboard build script this week to support the "Elite Knight Elf" (veteran) category, so expect the scores to go up by the end of the week. Great job so far!
Question. Can Rev and I combine our scores due to us being awful? Or better yet, can we have our own two person category?
C'mon, cmart! I created a special kiddie category just for you. Just post a darn score this year!
By the way, Rev can't play because he found a loop-hole in the rules: He agreed to be a judge for the competition and now he's not eligible for prizes.
So watch out everyone! Rev will apply his spammy judgemental attitude on your scores!!! Good thing we have some other special guests as judges to keep things clean. I will announce them later.
Okee doke. Here's the worst score ever posted on this game. Still getting the hang of maneuvering around the ghost and getting a feel for when he is chasing Carol or just wandering....
The snowman is ruthless.....
Oh my! That's a really good starting score, Opry99er! I'm serious!
It definitely is not the worse posted in the championship (I think we had a 2 year-old last year smash the control to get 27 points ). Like pimpmaul69 said, practice makes perfect, and consider that most of the veterans and winners on previous competitions started just like you.
There are plenty of achievements and other goals to help you advance throughout the competition. Also, make sure to visit some of the old Tips & Tricks threads from years past, where people post their favourite techniques:
I will be posting some tips this year as well... soon!
Looks like I'll need quite a bit of practice.
Should I be going for PERFECTs right off, or just get presents and advance? I have yet to get a PERFECT, regardless of what I try. I keep getting waxed by the snowman once he speeds up.
I go for PERFECTs all the time, but that's my OCD kicking in, which won't let me leave a piece of candy lying around. For Ultimate Maximum Scorage, you'll probably have to get PERFECTS, since the bonuses get higher on higher level.
However, I personally recommend you try to get as far in the game as possible, there are plenty of points to be had if you get far, and once you complete the game once you'll get a better sense of the mechanics. You'll also figure out which levels are easier to complete PERFECT, and go the extra mile on those.
In the end, it's your choice... there are two camps in this game, you just have to pick which one befits you: Are you a completist? Or are you a leveler? Perhaps a bit of both?
Ahh, those achievement goals are neat!!
I achieved several on these first two posted games.
Yeah! And I'll be announcing some Achievement Challenges throughout the month so keep visiting the forum! There will be additional prizes and awards -- everybody is a winner in this championship, especially the ones who just started!
