2018 Homebrew Tournament - Stay Frosty 2 - Final Round

Recommended Posts

OYAMAFAMILY TIPS FOR STAY FROSTY 2:

1) Read carefully the entire topic for 2600 NEW High Score Club, Season 4 / Week 26

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/240438-season-4-the-new-hsc-week-26-stay-frosty-2/

In this thread, you will find infos to get more familiar with this Christmas Game: tips, hints and clues provided by the programmer Spiceware.

 

2) Read carefully two topics related to Stay Frosty 2:

a) Stay Frosty 2 is awesome!

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/233257-stay-frosty-2-is-awesome/

b) The 2014 AtariAge Holiday Greeting Cart Is Here! (Page 5, Posts #118 to #125)

http://atariage.com/forums/topic/232788-the-2014-atariage-holiday-greeting-cart-is-here/page-5

 

3) Watch my Stay Frosty 2 complete gameplay video to see how to solve all 128 levels, and study the statistical tables associated with video. The great package of evidences (INCLUDING final screenshot) is available at High Score (note: on levels 32, 64, 96 and 128, there is a broom which allows double jumps.)

It takes approximately 3 hours to complete this Christmas game and reach the final objective - defeat the Firebosses and rescue Santa Claus.

Stay Frosty 2 - 99,612

After I defeated the Fireboss and completed the First Course of 32 levels, I LOST my concentration at Level 34 when I was SOOOO CLOSE to 100K (new extra life).

Stay Frosty 2, new attempt  -  200,334

(I rescued the 2nd Santa Claus helper, but I decided to comit suicide after completing Level 75 and scoring 200K points, i.e., before saving the 3rd character!)

389,644  Since there is no pausing during tournament play,  rescue a character and you can rest between rounds. Make a sandwich, grab a beer, get some sleep, there is no time limit on how long you can hang with the reindeer, etc.

Stay Frosty 2 - new attempt   262,861

 

In this attempt, I lost 10,000-point bonus twice - one of them at the completion of Level 32 and another one at the ending of Level 96.

I DIDN'T collect all 12 presents on the following Bonus Rounds: Levels 24 and 88.

After I defeated the 3rd Fireboss and then rescued the 3rd character, I took a screenshot and then stopped playing.

@McCallister, there's a message which I wrote in the picture below. You are the GRAND MASTER of Stay Frosty 1 and 2! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
