22,690 pts.

 

Although I'm eliminated, I'm posting a score here for fun and to give others a score to try to compete against.The club record's 56k?  Impressive.  If I remember correctly, my personal best for skill 1 is a little over 28k.

My upstairs LCD is getting bad retention on the screen with the static player 1 image and scores. Might not be able to use my phoenix for this game anymore 😢

I notice the white font is brighter in your shot than it is in mine.  Playing on the Phoenix?

No, I'm playing on my ADAM. Depending on the colors on the screen, my camera doesn't always take a good screenshot and I have to Photoshop it to make the background darker which makes the white appear brighter.

Our champion Bmack36 saves the galaxy somewhat this round and our humble moderatror has been eliminated. The field is getting smaller. Onto our next round in space.

I appreciate that every participant played extremely fair on GORF.

I recognized that if you stay on the last scene on every round and you shoot only the fireballs you can earn 100 points over and over again.

This way I scored more than 30,000 points easily, then I stopped because it was too boring.

I think that I'm not the only one who noticed this flawed game plan.

 

For next time playing GORF on HSC : Maybe it would be better that the winner is the guy who reaches the highest scene.

This came up last season with  Tapper. I think the general rule is to have forward progression and to not sit and churn points on an easy section of the game.

Yeah, it's easy to do this, but also if you hang around too long one of the fireballs will eventually get you. And as you said..it gets boring. This screen confounds me. Sometimes it takes me forever to blow up the ship. Other times I get it with one shot.
