Do you know there's a secret hideout from the bear?

http://www.retrocade...ile.php?id=1475

This picture shows the place where the bear can't reach and there was a bug in that game, I got the fish trophy without scoring 100k.

Actually, I went to the hideout to take a pic of the bug.

In the last Frostbite thread I just watched a video of someone (or a computer?) and now I think it's impossible to roll the game.

It's way too fast at 800k. :-o

 

So, since Oyama got 500k, 600k would be a great and challeging goal :).

Of course, first I need to get the 500k...

Since Difficulty Switches have NO effect in Frostbite (according to the manual), I will play with Game 1 / Difficulty A on both sides (PRO position).

And try to come close to my score obtained on Season 9 of the OLD 2600 HSC, moderated by Zero - 526,300 points.

As mentioned by the old moderator of the 2600 HSC on previous Frostbite threads, Difficulty Switches are NOT APPLICABLE (Position A or B allowed).

COMING SOON: my Frostbite Gameplay Video.

Well, here's a good reason you should always read the manual. I was reading the HSC thread from the last time Frostbite was played, and in which I had participated, when (much to my surprise) I encountered a reference to the use of the red button. I never knew the red button had a function in this game!! :dunce: :dunce: :dunce:

I don't know if it'll make a difference in my performance, but at least I have another tool to work with as needed.

 

Speaking of reading the thread from last time, I found it interesting to re-read some of the stories people wrote about Frostbite for the bonus that week. Some were very well done ;)

FROSTBITE - GAME 1 - 407,980 - USING EMU7800 WITHOUT SOUNDS (MUTE ON)

FROSTBITE - GAME 1 - 407,980 - USING EMU7800 WITHOUT SOUNDS (MUTE ON)

 

SOME POINTS TO CONSIDER:

1) Since Difficulty Switches are not used in Frostbite and NOT APPLICABLE as mentioned by the old moderator of the 2600 HSC (Zero, do you remember?), Difficulty B or Difficulty A is ALLOWED. I chose Difficulty A / PRO on both sides in this case.

2) Notice that I CAN post videos on Youtube, whose length is bigger than 15 minutes. Running time: approximately 40 minutes.

3) Before entering the igloo, I sacrificed myself, especially when I had 9 lives (maximum value).

 

I watched the video :thumbsup:

As always it's very interesting to see how Oyama's style is different from mine.

But, in this particular game, I don't see much advantages to maximize your points grabbing fishes and dying to get a higher time score.

The difficulty ramps up with the score not with the number of levels so you get comfortable playing in a way you won't be able to continue when the 400k arrive.

 

When I was about 12, I liked to play the unstopable Frostbite, i.e., never stop jumping :-D. This is a good practice for higher levels, at least it's fun.

On the other side, I have to use a bit more the button as Oyama showed in his video, not to keep jumping and making points but to avoid risks.

I almost play as the unstoppable Frostbite, I must change a little.

= 18 = 34 !

 

Oink grew on me & I decided i liked it a lot

but I'm immediately hooked with this game & like it more

 

thanks for the video & extra info Oyama!

 

I think Lid probably has a good point about getting a bad habit by point-pressing early in the game

however, with practice as Lid said unstopping, maybe it can still be profitable? if you can remember to adjust your strategy at the right time. many games I play like this, pressing for points until a point where I change what I'm doing when it gets tougher.

 

I will start adding pics soon

Does it come from the Comic Book? I forgot everything, I was too young when I got my Yar's Revenge.
