  1. Moon Patrol - 20,800 Best I could do in 15 minutes. A lot more fun and less frustrating than Gas Hog. I had 15 more minutes. 31,800
  2. Although some (like myself sometimes) do not (and in my case, usually *cannot*) post until Sunday due to work constraints, I personally feel that it is unlikely that anyone will match even the first score you posted, much less so this one. I can usually pick up pretty quickly on a game I've never played - if I don't master a game within 10 tries, I usually stop playing it altogether due to not enough time before the next game rolls around. This particular title would take me weeks or months of constant playing to get as familiar with the game dynamics as one would need to be to put up the kind of numbers you're putting up here. I honestly don't think anyone is sandbagging ... I think you're just that good at this game .. and by "good", I really mean "much better than anyone I've ever seen play the game ... by far".
  3. Birthday Mania - 646 Fireball - 13,422 Solar Storm - 3,815
  4. Exactly. I know this game has been played in the HSC in the past, and the result in that HSC has had some pretty long-lasting negative manifestations both here and elsewhere, bleeding through to other high score communities outside of AtartiAge, unfortunately. I think Vocelli made the right decision by switching to Dragonfire, even though I suck at it LOL
  5. Is there a leeching prohibition on this title this week? Pretty much any score over 16K-18K will have at the very least significant unintentional leeching involved, and anything over 20K-22K will certainly have intentional leeching, and a lot of it. Im okay with either, I just figured it would be good to know what will be allowed, and play accordingly.
  6. Tower of Rubble: 299 Robot City: 2,910 The End: 36,520
  7. @Vocelli Just curious ... when the instructions for this week say "Game 1", does that mean "Medium" or "Slow"? (Games aren't numbered on Super Cobra, but "Medium" is the default)
  8. Horrible Scramble knockoff. 12,580
  9. Mountain King 132,650 California Games 87,230 Spikes Peak 67,650
  10. Thanks, man. I agree that some more thought should have gone into development. Whether it is considered leeching or otherwise, there are several factors that conventional wisdom considers when determining if the technique is either leeching (frowned upon) or point-pressing (generally acceptable): ❌ doing an activity repeatedly in the same location that doesnt progress the game forward ❌ the game doesn't have a finite end ✅ the game does not have a kill timer ❌ repeating a technique that yields more extra lives than expends them and can be done infinitely (like the turtle step kick trick on Suoer Mario Bros.) Although the BMX event's timer is not a kill timer, I am assuming the devs did that on purpose, and was put in as a bonus points incentive commensurate with the time left on the clock, if any. No time left, no bonus. This is not uncommon, as there have been several games that provide remaining-time bonuses, but no bonus if the time expires, without further penalty. Many times in these games, the player may make a strategic decision whether to maximize timer bonus or to dismiss it. Is this leeching? I suppose that depends on one's subjective definition of the term, but the conventional wisdom (which may or may not be right) suggests that this is merely point pressing, and it is isn't unreasonable for someone to think outside of conventional wisdom.
  11. You may not, but I would have a problem with it not being accepted. You did what anyone else has the ability to do, your technique was within the confines of the programming, no glitches were used, there is a limited amount of distance that can be covered, and the game has a definitive end... you just happen to be the first to maximize scoring opportunities within that distance and max it out. I think this should be allowed to stand.
  12. Game 3 - 999-574 (425) Game 7 - 999-441 (558)
  13. Game 3 999-639 (360) Game 7 999-495 (504)
  14. Jungle Hunt 36980. One of my first attempts ... and every attempt thereafter was worse than the one before LOL!
  15. ... am I the only one who gets WORSE at Jungle Hunt the more they play it?
