HSC12 Round 7: Sheer Balloonacy

Recommended Posts

Tables UPDATED (post #2) #

I'm still hanging in there... but for how long?!!

:)

Just a technical note:I dont see my Up Up and Away score (McKong's too) in tables. I also think my total number of points miss some. ;)

I could have sworn I'd updated the attachments but don't worry I'm still top :P

(should be everything apart from Goochman's last C&B score). SHiNjide has 1pt more too.

Perhaps it's that time to post summaries of your scores when you make updates over the next couple of days so I can double check :)

 

Re-assembling Ramp Rage for about the 10th time today - decided to screw about with the scrolling and then add another variation to something so I'm desperately juggling bytes around... no pressure :-o

I'm done playing this round, although I'm not through with the games. I'm sure I'll revisit "Crazy Clown Jumper," and a few others. I plan to avoid "Duck Arrow Balloon" at all costs-- it's a terrible game; it seems to be finished, but it's just not fun. Otherwise, all the games were worthwhile, and some of the new games to me were excellent!

 

Here are my scores this round, in alphabetical order:

 

Balloonacy - 4,140
Clowns and Balloons (Beginner) - 40,280
Clowns and Balloons (Advanaced) - 16,990
Clowns and Balloons (Expert) - 11,370
Crazy Clown Jumper - 5,400
Duck Arrow Balloon - 324
Pinhead - 8,370
Pooyan - 60,150
Up, Up and Away - 810

 

Screenshots of the above scores are posted below.

No new scores from me, just an overview:

 

Pooyan: 250.003

Pooyan first life: 110.815

C&B Beginner: 100.003

C&B Advanced: 100.001

C&B Expert: 93.970

Pinhead: 27.465

Pinhead first life: 9.765

Balloonacy: 4.636

Crazy Clown Jumper: 3.600

Duck Arrow Balloon: 722

Up Up and Away new score: 5.387

 

I think I did well with Clowns and Balloons mainly because of a paddle I made. Large 7 cm diameter of the wheel and new potentiometer ensured accurate and jitter free control over those clowns.

 

I never had any paddles at home before, and my scores with joystick hardly ever went over 60k.

 

Just to say, it was not me who made these high scores in C&B, it was the paddle:)

 

Okay, enough of balloons, now get me Ramp Rage to play!:)

OK folks final tables soon - after I've forced Gwobby to play all the games :evil:

;)

 

He's just got Pooyan to go... can't prize him away from CCJ - nice watching someone else play, I didn't realise you didn't die when you hit the top of the screen. The fall through would allow you to survive more on the very fast harder levels and perhaps finish the game?

 

... tables soonish!

Hey guys, sorry for the delay, it's been a while since I've been able to play any games with Bounty Bob, and he only gave me a couple of goes on each game! I played the first four games on PAL, and the last three NTSC

 

Clowns and Balloons - 6020 (Beginner), 2280 (Advanced), 17520 (Expert)

 

I think I had played this game before, it's good fun. Not sure why my Expert score was so much higher than my other two, maybe because it was the first game I played and I needed to limber up with a couple of practice goes ;)

 

Pinhead - 6445

 

This game is really cool! I'd like to go for a pint with Pinhead, he'd probably need it after a long stressful day of unicycling on a tightrope whilst popping balloons with his head, with help from the occasional spider/crab.

 

Balloonacy - 62

 

I kind of felt this game was a poor man's Pinhead, the balloons that spontaneously become skulls were just frustrating. Plus the guy is just walking on the floor, which takes nowhere near as much skill as unicycling on a tightrope.

 

Duck Arrow Balloon - 224

 

This game was pretty fun, although I seemed to finish each level with less points than I started. Should've quit while I was ahead

 

Up Up and Away - 199

 

What kind of a jerk throws things at a hot air balloon? The kind of jerk that made this game too difficult for me ;)

 

Crazy Clown Jumper - 2600

 

I don't know what it is about this game but I didn't want to stop playing it! Really fun and addictive, but Bounty Bob interrupted me...

 

Pooyan - 72100

 

But I'm glad he did! After a couple of frustrating attempts I got the hang of this and had a lot of fun. I kept forgetting to look behind me for the fox biting me in the behind. By the way, BB thought they were crocodiles, but I'm pretty sure they're foxes. Can anyone settle this fierce debate?

Congratulations to... JK40001 for winning the first multi-game tournament of the season :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Perhaps it was down to the home made controllers which are really nice :thumbsup: but probably he was just lucky :D I kept SHiNjide in 3rd place, McKong gained a HSC bonus point for setting a new HSC record for Crazy Clown Jumper... (gwobby is still playing that as I type! ["I wont stop playing this game until I get 10,000"])

 

Hope everyone enjoyed this round; lots of reasonable games and a couple of good ones: Clowns and Balloons is always fun and Pinhead offers lasting play. I just played Pooyan on my NTSC system and the game is much better, much slicker and more fun though not too much harder.

 

Checkout the final tables and I look forward to the next round which will start tomorrow (Friday) :-o

I like the look of the tables, and also that the scores are now kept in the second posting. Great stuff-- and if anyone gets 10,000 points in "Crazy Clown Jumper," even after the round is over, then they deserve a bonus point or a Certificate of Lunacy (or both).

Gwobby has returneth to whence he came (after showing me some degree level maths that made my assembler programming look easy in comparison, traumatising the pet cats, finishing off the rhubarb crumble, playing Gwobby's Adventure & GSB, traumatising the pet cats, going for an indian meal, playing a round on the par 3 golf, traumatising the pet cats, not doing any studying, drinking 2 year out-of-date cider and taking all the biscuits - all in a days work for our hero) :D but he'll be back :) Disbelievers can check him out at http://gwobby.webs.com/
