By the way, I want to ask you if we should remove the points-clause in the scoring? The original scoring said if two players share the same stage the lower score wins, I just took it from the last competition. But now I am not sure if there is any sense. Camping isnt giving you any advantage, so if you want to stay hours in Stage 0.1 feel free for doing it.
 
Unfortunatly I was too focused, so I have not paid attention when I won the bridge with 6 lifes. Since there is no 7th life to gain you maybe rewarded with points. As I said: Its just a possibility, I have really not paid attention to that. But if its like that in fact the better score will maybe the better run, because you lost fewer lifes early on.
 
In short: I am not sure if its fair to put the score in consideration for the ranking. But I made the rules at the beginning and so I wont change them if you think it would be wrong.
 
 
If we would remove the scoring-clause two players with the game progress will get the same rank and same points.


It's all good with me , but I think it really wont matter. Odds of us having a tie here in levels achieved are very slim to none.. lol ;) But like mentioned Im good with what ever is decided..

Cheers

Ok, so I am getting the hang of the run/jump run/jump rhythm to get through the dense clams/trees/lava. Pretty much only losing lives at the bridge now. Sometimes just rushing the guy on the bridge works like a charm, other times not so much. So I have reached 5.7 now with a score of 5700.

I think the bridge is not consistent, you its hard to do that by just skill. I once ran a stage just by rushing towards the dude, when I entered the same stage in another run it didnt work.

 

 

Fun-fact time:

 

1. Did you noticed the clams between the lava? :D I really wonder if they are supposed to be there, or if they just are there by accident. Poor clams, must be hot there:

 

2. Does anyone else notice, that after killing the guy the girl just walks away from our hero, seemingly scared? No hug, no kiss, the just wants to sneak away. I am not sure what kind of character we actually control, may the story is a lot differen than we all think at the first look :lol:
