Old Man G will be posting my Matchup with Nads on Thursday.

Once he does that I will randomly draw the rest of the games.

If Sbaz tops this I will definitely see if I can do better. For now, I'm happy I at least earned a medal of Merit on this first attempt.

I just realized I've been playing Ghost Manor with a specific technique shown in this video. It cannot be guessed by reading the manual -- only experimentation or the above video. I don't know if it can be considered a glitch or an Easter Egg, but by my having used it it's only fair that NovaStar knows the technique as well. I'll leave it to the mods to determine its legality.

OK, the games are up...

 

*she takes a few minutes to do some stretching*

Now I'm ready to compete!

First score: 2,900.

 

Anyone know how the hell I'm supposed to avoid the animals in the second screen?

Hey Lauren Tyler,

The only thing which I CAN DO is to share the Gingerbread Man gamaplay footage (posted by Darren Jones on YouTube), because I'M NOT ABLE to answer your question.

Description: Gingerbread Man - Atari 2600 - Stella Emulator - 23,720 points.

So, time to watch this video!!

Thank you. That score is going to be tough to beat, I get to around the 90000 mark and crumble. Everything moves so fast! If by the end of the weekend I can't beat that score I will probably concede........................... unless I can get real close :)

Pre-work attempt! This was probably attempt #8 this morning. I don't really understand when it's "fine" to get the nest on the tree level. I just sort of grabbed it when time was running out and a bee started chasing me, too.

Am I allowed to explain the objective on this stage?

collect the falling twigs and bounce on the trampoline. 4 times on each side, and then bring the worm to the bird. If you lose count, you'll know you've done it enough, if the twig on your head doesn't disappear when you bounce

95600 on Mario Bros. Man, I've lost count how many tries I had today. Still 45000 short of matching Oyama's score, but I thought I'd post this score to show I am trying and not giving up yet :)

Had a little gaming time last night but only scored about 150k. Just moved, so no internet to post pictures. Finally was able to make the scoring trick work, but randomly got killed. I just wanted to be able to say that I am way behind, I haven't given up yet, and internet is coming in about 3 days. Good luck to all!

Had a real good run this time with a death at the end of a level that ended up giving more points than I deserved with a reset timer.
