Programmed By: Douglas B. Macrae & Betty Ryan Tylko

Right Difficulty: B

Post your scores right here in this thread.  They will be duly added to the high score list. 

Remember to play the game with the recommended game mode and difficulty settings as shown above so that your scores will be consistent with everyone else.  Please refer to the rules thread for further information on what is allowed and if you have any more questions about what is considered fair play, feel free to ask about it here.

 

Have Fun !

 

 

The deadline for posting scores is 11:59:59 PM (EST) the evening of July 2nd, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

bonus:  Fun With Alliteration

 

Name a video game (any video game) with an alliterated title!

Meaning: every word in the title must begin with the same consonant-sound.  (words like "of" and "the" don't count).

     for example:  Bob's Burger Bouncer :thumbsup:(+2) --- Zany Zippy Cakewalk  :thumbsdown:(+0) 

 

:arrow: More words in the title earn you more points:

     2-word title: (+1)  example: Happy Hippy

     3-word title: (+2)  example: Dread Dead Dragon

     4-word title: (+3)  example: Lippy Larry's Lucky Leap

     etc.

 

:arrow: You may earn multiple bonuses, BUT: 

     --> if you have already earned an alliteration bonus, you must improve your Pole Position score to bonus again.

     --> AND, to bonus again, you must use a game with a different number of words in the title. So this means you can only use one 2-word title, only one 3-word title, only one 4-word title, etc., per player.

 

:arrow: A few extra rules/clarifications:

--> if a different letter makes the same sound, it still counts as alliteration.

     examples: "Needle Knife" or "Killer Commissar" would count for (+1)

--> if the same letter makes a different sound, it does not count!

     examples: "Creamy Chocolate Country" and "Phaser-Powered Piggies" don't work! (+0)

--> ignore words like "of", "and", "the", etc.  So, "The Return of the Ready Robots" and "Tom & Terry's Tumble" would count for (+2)

--> a hyphen makes it 2 words.

     examples: "Bashful Buster-Buddies" or "The Knights of Never-Never" would count for (+2)

--> you can't use Pole Position!

 

--> of course, to earn points, you must name a real video game, so all the examples above wouldn't really count for points :P

Believe it or not but 60,960 is possible.  You have to be perfect at the end to get the extra car to pass.    I've never done it myself.  My high score is 60,910.

Ha!  I knew there would be something I hadn't thought of  :lolblue:

 

sure, let's count it as 3 words.

 

edit:  yeah, prototypes count!  (Also, Bouncin' Baby Bunnies got finished and released as a homebrew as well.)

Score: 58760

Bonus: Double Dragon

 

I was so stoked to hear that Pole Position was the contest game this time! I loved this game in the arcades as a kid, and when I finally was able to play it on the 2600 (I never had the 2600 game as a kid) it felt almost as good. I also like the fact that the game doesn't take too long - even if you're very good at it. I can set aside just 15 minutes and try a few races before I've got to do grown-up-responsibility things again. I'll be trying my hand at this game several times over this next week and hopefully will be able to improve my score over this this one. I've done better, but this is a good start.
