There's something you should know:

The most you can get is 3 points, because the goal is to complete 3 words (or letter combinations) before time runs out or you're hit by a Doomsday Meteor.  Therefore, it could be anywhere from 0 to 3 here.  We may want to reconsider this perhaps? Or figure something out?

Or figure something out?

 

It actually gives you a score at the end if you get all 3 "words."  At least the manual calls it a score.  It's how many seconds you had left.  why they didn't add points for the stuff you shoot I have no idea.  definitely a weird game for a contest but this setting should make it a good challenge.  It's actually hard to get any score at all!

 

Let's add some bonus incentives for completing words...  [see above]

Is this game Scottish?   

 

No?

 

Then it's CRAP!

 

 

Are we going to have 25 people tied for first?  LOL    Actually I thought we would have a bunch tied for first when we played Pitfall II so I guess it won't happen with

this neither?

What I had in mind was if someone had 40 seconds left, he/she would get a higher placement than someone who had 39 seconds left.

 

The only reason I picked this game is because it has never ever been played in the HSC before

Question: once you've completed the 'word' how do you get the game to recognize it and move you to the next? Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it does after wasting all my time. I can't play if I can't move from round one to round two and round three!

wow classicgamer!  I was thinking the max possible might be about 60 or so.

 

I decided the thing between Z & A is the mouth from Fast Food
