TRBB, just a correction...there are 22 screens in the Main Game (A-V), which I completed.  I should have 22, not 20.  ;)

 

Still working on the Goochman levels.  Cleared A-K (11 screens total.)

Working on the original levels. Got somewhere up to P i think and some of the Kendall levels (don't score it yet).

 

The Unknown seemed to be easier. Got up to R, but O and R seem impossible. I figured out how to use the music note to get up to the platform with the fire demons, but I don't see how to get the last 2 dots. The teleports only take you to the first 4 teleport pads (all part of the 'O')
 

Unknown O
Unknown R

Just completed D and E on main game.

 

I have to admit, as Round 1 was my first entry into the HSC, I'm a little confused with this game and the scoring, and the 'proof' that levels have been completed. I'm a beginner, completed A-C, and then skipped to D and completed that and E, then lost all of my lives.

 

Am I doing that right? I posted photos for my previous completions, and scores in Super Pac-Man, but is this just an 'on trust' thing?!

:thumbsup:

Exactly right, from experience I know some games have scoring issues, with Mr Robot each time you lose a man the screen restarts, so if players died on the screens with loads of points (bombs etc) there score would be bigger than someone who got right through, there are some screens with two extra lives so again you could die and rack up more men.

 

With Mr R. I know the top players (detaecher at least) would complete the game on their first go or so but others would struggle with screen B which is tricky for beginners.

 

Screenshots are always optional, I trust people to play in the spirit of things - over time you get to know who is who and we've not had any issues.

 

Playing for levels and allowing skipping for some players should let everyone enjoy the game :)

 

----

 

Vol1 I completed A B and C, C is really easy so there's a quick point grab for everyone. D is a real killer, at first I thought it wasn't possible but I think it is - you can get stuck and have to wait for the timer to run out (for us hardcore real hardware users!)

Got to S again on the main game, that screen is carnage :-o

Since there are no millions of dollars in prize money, I don't see any reason to cheat in the HSC.

What! You didn't get the millions of dollars? I might stretch to a T-Shirt or boxed game from Pro© Mag for the winner this season... hope it's me ;)

 

@CaptainClassic - got to L (again) on the goochman levels, will try harder today to see if I can make progress  :-o

I reached O too, does seem impossible - goochman may have added the level letter "O" and mistakenly used teleporters. Anyone reaching O play on again starting on "P". I completed P-T, goochman has found out a couple of things about Mr R.  that make other levels seem impossible but they are not! I then replayed O with this knowledge but no luck, though I do have another theory to try tomorrow :idea:   :ponder:

Reached U again on original game 258,520 - there are some tricky jumps to make here   :-o

VOL I:  Finished Screens A and B!

VOL II:  Completed A-G (7 screens.)  Sorry...don't have a pic...couldn't snap the screenshot in time.

 

 

G Sucks.  Are there any opportunities for extra men along the way, TRBB?  :)

o figured out 'R'. forgot about the final jump before death. I still don't think ''O' is possible, but I am all the way to 'U' if I skip it

I just figured 'R' out as well.  Just started trying stuff out and stumbled on the solution.  :)

Ok, just to make sure, for the non-original levels we can restart any screen or skip any screen, we don't have to do a straight play through. For seasoned veterans, we have to play the original Mr. Robot levels as a straight run from A-Z (or 'V', whatever it is)

If that is so, I completed all the levels of Kendall Vol 2. except 'U' (A-T, V-Z) and all the levels of Unknown except 'O' (A-N, P-Z)

I think I will start back on the original levels again until I can complete them, and then maybe try Kendall Vol.1 seriously.

I'm playing the original game and have only completed screen A.

Try using the level skip (select/F2) and picking out some of the easier ones, screen B is relatively hard though there are often several ways of doing each screen. e.g. on B you can jump left from the 2nd platform to get that low bit instead of going along the conveyor belts and back :)

 

VOL I:  Finished Screens A and B!

 

VOL II:  Completed A-G (7 screens.)  Sorry...don't have a pic...couldn't snap the screenshot in time.

I should think that is very unlikely knowing how mean I am :evil:

For "Hall of Famers" play (and other top players if they wish) play each set from "A" every time, apart from "Unknown" where after reaching impossible "O" you can start again from "P". If anyone does crack "O" there will be a bonus point - we need goochman to check out his original disk :)

Doh! At least I know how to beat each level.

Seems that everyone is making progress apart from me!! I keep failing on U on the original game, I'm going to service my joystick today as I'm sure the buttons are not 100% :twisted:

 

Round 3 Poll OPEN and I'll post new tables soon...

Success! Completed Mr. Robot (258,790)

U was a real killer and luckily I spotted a way of doing V on my last life or so.

Ok, now that I understand the proper way to play, I got the original levels up to 'P', died on Q.

I did collect the extra man on level 'L' repeatedly, but I don't know how to avoid it after collecting it the first time. (I don't think possible to complete the level without getting it every time)

That's fine,  just didn't want people farming lives by collecting multiple and then repeating this, if it's one you get as part of doing the level then fair enough... ok tables now...
