HSC17 Round 2: DONKEY KONG

Recommended Posts

I think, cos the points thing on the girder screen exploits a bug and it's easy to score heavily without too much risk, we should ban it.

I tried it and I was easily able to get an extra 5k and 10k on level 1 and 3 respectively, and Deteacher demonstrated getting an additional 15k or so on level 4. That's a lot of points, which would kind of spoil the HSC record.

 

However if others are happy with it, no problem

I tend to agree although I can not imagine someone in the end wants to win this game/round by doing this. I personally do not care. I want to conquer as much as possible fields and I am less interested in the points. So I would say: leave it to the player.

 

As long people do not use freezer / save state I am fine.

I just race every screen. Seems to work for me.


Never heard of point pressing before and so it never really occured to me to use it.

 

So I'm happy with my score so far.

 

:)

Unlike Joust, this feels like a game that I can improve my score on

Unlike Joust, this feels just the opposite to me ;)

I think the consensus is that we don't rack up the score on the girder levels.  So, I will not use that tactic for the HSC.  

 

Back to the ol' grind.  :)

71,300.  The struggle is real.  If only I could get more than 20 minutes here and there, I might be able to improve.  Need to learn those foundry levels.

So far I never made it higher than my last score. It is quite 'frustrating' (in a good way) ... Most of the time I already in screen #3 (that is when you get the barrels again). That is for me the moment to press START again. I do not want to die so soon, otherwise I will NEVER get to a higher score.

 

Do you guys recognize this, that you press START in this game before you lost all your lives?

Yep I've been trying to improve my score. 230k I think is beyond me but I wanted to at least get to level 7 and a 200k score cos I've managed that before

Thanks carlsson for cruching the numbers :thumbsup:

I do find myself restarting but it's a bad habbit, better to just stick with it - you know my one man theory but it might be man #4 that is the hero.

Yes I think somwhere on level 7 is the target for top players.

Oh I am SO proud. For the first time in YEARS I managed to reach 125m. 

 

111700 points.

 

Pfff. More luck than wisdom though. I managed to survive the extremely hard barrel screen. The rest of the screens is easier for me (well the bakery is harder too).

Good work M. I just had my session for today and had one good go at 151,500 which amusingly is 500 less than my best posted, level 5 freaks me out !!

 

p.s. don't eat those pies ;)

Same here...just can't seem to replicate that one good game for a chance to improve.  So wanted to crack 200K.  It just wasn't in the cards this time.  :(
