Congratulations High Score Clubbers! We have reached the final stretch of a long season. This time in the last few weeks we will have a...







* * * * Bonus Extravaganza! * * * *

Many points will be available.



:arrow: Normal Bonus: Order of the Hero Hero.jpg

Join Activision's "Order of the Hero" -- Score at least 75,000 pts (use any game selection you like) (+2)



...But that's not all!



:arrow: Double Points

All final scores earn double points during bonus weeks!


:arrow: Beat the Leaders

This time our “Beat The Leader” incentive will work more drastically in favor of players behind in points.

The reasons for this adjustment:

** To make things more EXCITING.

** To add greater incentive for players to CLIMB in the rankings and/or to get into position for the Bracket Tournament.

** To further challenge the leaders to DEFEND their hard-earned positions!

** This hopefully will also reduce the amount of no-shows in the tournament (by helping to bump inactive players from the top 24).

First score (Game 5): 23,725.

 

I wish the game were really random. It always starts with the same especially nasty level. Getting off the moving platform is almost everytime killing at least one of my guys.

Bonus

Game 1

76,010

 

 

Hey S.BAZ... Can we do the patch part of the bonus on GAME 1? Clarification needed, and game 1 would be most welcome :-)

In other news, a slight improvement on Game 5: 39,355.

 

As a mediocre player, I'm not too happy with game 5 as a choice. Too much luck of the draw. Two or three hard levels right up front and you're in for a lot of frustration.

AWESOME!

How long did it take you to reach 1 Million Points on H.E.R.O. Game 5, Liduario?

Thank you!

 

I guess it took around one hour.

I watched your video and you're playing faster and better than me.

I'm slow to pass those moving vertical lava walls. I took the boat every time and I always take the time to kill the low butterfly when it's near the central wall in the water level ( you get the right time to bomb the wall without stepping the butterfly - cool).

This game is like Astroblast and has a pause in between lives, and levels. I assume we can use this as a pee break but not a hour long break

 

I think as long as the game has such features, it's fair to use them any way you like.

I think last time (Game 1), I got about 300,000 before dying too many times on level 20. This time I got to level 20s back to back. Doh. I have every intention of beating this score, so no picture now.
