  Greetings from the frigid northcoast! I hope everyone had a great holiday. It was 3 degrees here this morning when I started putting this round together and it's not much warmer now. Perfect weather to stay inside and fire up the CV!

Hey it's good to be back, it's pretty %*#@! frigid here in Oregon as well, ice storms and snow everywhere.  my fences are all smashed from branches coming down with all the ice, power was out for a couple days... fun times  #]

 

I lived on Lake Superior through a winter so I can imagine what it must look like up there Northcoast!

Flipper Slipper [Skill 1]:  13,350 pts.

 

I like the other games in this round; however, I'm not a fan of Flipper Slipper.  The controls are absolutely atrocious in this game.  Sometimes the flippers just refuse to tilt/angle themselves, and that's very damning to your score when the game speeds up and you don't get the control response you're expecting.

Well, I thought I'd get my scores out of the way early and set the bar for the rest of you.  After posting my new totals in this post, I shall sit out the rest of the round and give somebody else a chance to win this round.  Kudos to whoever tops these scores and totals.  I know Mangia is quite good at the Spectron game.  In the next day or two, I might post a video of Frantic Freddy to show how to effectively rack up your score (the purple fires are not as difficult to evade as you would think).

 

Frantic Freddy:  58,990 pts

Flipper Slipper:  13,350 pts

Spectron:  3,640 pts

 

TOTAL:  75,980 pts

 

Play all 3 games and post pics:  +4

Score 15,000 on Frantic Freddy:  +4

Score 3,500 on Spectron:  +3

Score 10,000 on Flipper Slipper:  +2

 

Break or set new record:  To be determined...

Frantic Freddy 82,690. Flipper Slipper 20,120. Spectron 4,080. By using the pipes on the second screen while playing Frantic Freddy there is a simple patient method/pattern to success. Climb up the pipe to the middle of the pipe and the fires can't harm Freddy. It's just a matter of surviving as many of the first screens as possible for high scores, even rollage I'm sure. if Dugger doesn't post a video I can put one together. So I've added the Save some Cats Bonus for an added challenge (Skill 3).

Bingo.  Should never get a game over on the pipes levels.  Just hang on the pipe, wait for the fires to get across and then eliminate the red ones first.

Well, I didn't do nearly as well in this video as I did yesterday; nevertheless, this video demonstrates how you can patiently wait for the fires to cross the screen while you're hanging on the pipes.  If you're quick enough, you can get to the top much sooner and complete the level with a much larger timer bonus.

https://www.youtube....h?v=fzqBfb9Qhqo

 

 

Not in the video:  for the first time, I tried skill 3 to see this cat-saving part NCG was talking about.  I had no problems whatsoever saving the cats on the debris level; however, saving them on the pipe level was far more difficult.  I was able to save several of them on the pipe level, but I'm not very efficient at it yet.  First time on Skill 3, I finished with a meager 3,110 points.

 

 

Edit:  I just now realized NCG added cat-saving as a +2 bonus.  Had I realized that sooner, I would have filmed myself saving a few of those cats.  I'll get around to posting pics or video of it later.

Save some Cats Bonus 16,740.  Definitely more of a challenge with the cats.

Frantic Freddy : 15,990 

 

In my game there no cat appears.

 

Maybe in later levels, although in my eyes FF is an extremely boring game with repetitive game plan.

  We have already played a Space round this season and will probably play another coming up. Perhaps Star Wars, Star Trek and Star Fortress in the next one. Your request is duly noted.

  The cats only appear in Skills 3,4,7 & 8. Play Skill 3 (Save Some Cats Bonus) and there will be plenty of cats, much more of a challenge.
