Hey guys, moderator update: not only have I had computer problems, but had to work a bunch of long shifts lately. That ends today, plus getting computer back today (w/ charger), so I'll be back in action.

I apologize for my inactivity!

The bonus round will start later than planned (after final round ends), and will not affect season points but there will be a small prize for the winner.

When you're suffering from heat exhaustion, you feel weak and dizzy, have a blinding headache, and want to throw up. So, yes, it's exactly like playing Desert Falcon.

I'm mostly done with Desert Falcon (I like the Atari 7800 version better) and Lady Bug (not a bad game, just can't grasp the concept.)

As for Bump 'n' Jump, a little practice and a LOT of safe driving make a HUGE difference: 276,096

So yeah, I decided to try my luck at Desert Falcon again.  Did somewhat better, but I definitely need more practice!

S.BAZ, you forgot my Desert Falcon score of 10,210.  When you get a chance, can you please add it?

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I cannot get past the sphinx on desert falcon. I keep trying to hit it's face and it doesn't do anything, I have watched videos with people doing it and still can't figure out what I am doing wrong

 

found out what I was doing wrong, I was staying high when I needed to drop lower

Bump 'N' Jump:  101,848  --  I like this game but I prefer smashing cars over driving safe.

Desert Falcon:  11,030  --  After 10,000 it seems to get a lot harder.  Plus I haven't made it through Level 1 without dying...

Lady Bug:  127,790  --  Awesome game & my 1st homebrew  :thumbsup:

    

     Ladybug tips:  Immediately grab the hearts while they're blue (avoid eating anything else til the hearts are gone) -- a blue heart levels up your score multiplyer so everything else (except veggie prizes) gives you more points. 

 

The big scoring happens in the SPECIAL round, so try to pick up any "S-P-E-C-I-A-L" letters while they're red.  Make the most of your letters: as often as possible, pick them up only when they spell something.

Bump n Jump 24120
Desert Falcon 8766
LadyBug 59700

Ladybug is really all about point optimisation. I thought I was clever for eating as many ghost as possible in PacMan but LadyBug is jus crazy. I get that the colors change on a timer but getting a feel for that timer is hard to imagine.

Desert Falcon is something I'd couldn't have imagined on the VCS... the hitboxes are just messed up. Very interesting concept but the execution could have been better.

Not mich to say about bump n jump but it's simple and work well enough. A good break from thr micromanagement from Ladybug and the clunkiness of Desert Falcon.

Interesting selection of games for the last week!
