*UPDATE*

 

We will play this game for two weeks since I will have spotty access to the internet over the next week or so.

 

So we'll play this game until Tuesday, April 1st. :)

This is one of those annoying games that doesn't keep your score after the game ends.

 

I started getting clobbered so I took a screenshot before dying here, but as it turns out you don't really have to anticipate it. Just use a continue and your score will still be on the screen.

Don't let it go back to the title screen or your score will be forever forgotten.

184,250

Took me a couple tries to get that far. I'm sure somebody can do better, don't get beaten by a noob! :)

 

I don't love the collision detection in this game - it seems it's impossible to hit 2 enemies at once, and you can't throw them into each other either.

Still having internet access problems, or? :) I've been wanting to get back into the NES high score club but I don't like this game, so I've been waiting for the next one...

Sorry, been very busy; my wife just had a baby. ;)

 

I'll try to get a poll up today and next Monday or Tuesday we'll start the next game. :)

Congrats!

 

Can I still play Battletoads and submit a score then? Not a big fan, but I'll give it a go anyway...

Sure, you can submit a score until I get the next game up and running - which should hopefully :ponder: be tomorrow midday.

Not a popular game...:?

 

Anyway, it's a pretty fun game, but the gameplay is a lot shallower than I expected. There are lots of moves you can do, but you never really have many choices.

 

Well, I hope you all had fun playing!
