HSC17 Round 3: MR DO!

Recommended Posts

Welcome to chevymad :thumbsup:

 

I had a decent scene 20 go today but the pressure got to me! The game has that perfect balance of overwhelming you but still being addictive ;)

I must've had some extreme beginner's luck at the start of this week. Since then I have made several attempts and despite I'm at the absolute bottom of the table, only once managed to improve my score a little. Unfortunately I didn't get to take a screenshot, but my best for this week is 27300 pts and I strongly doubt I'll be able to improve upon that next week.

I first played this game in an early season of HSC so I gave it a few new goes before arthritis reminded me to stop.

 

In any case, my first go was my best.

Same here, Carlsson...I've definitely hit a plateau.  It's as if I've forgotten how to play the game and can't relearn it.  Ugh...

Anyone else notice this (I'm calling it a bug):

 

Sometimes when you push an apple off a ledge, you'll fall with the apple and die.  This "bug" ended my game because it was my last life and I would have probably been able to best my PB.  :(

Not sure whether that's a bug or not, but this game seems full of bugs

Welcome back a8isa1 :thumbsup: I posted on the hsc survey main forum thread about the Quickshot Maverick, it's left handed but really easy to move, might be worth a try for anyone struggling with their hands.

 

Anyone stuck on Mr Do! - try varying your strategies to learn more, pick one at a time - go for quick screens - go for max points on the fruits by getting sets - go for multiple kills for max points - my usual method is to go for extra lives pick up 2 letters per screen if you are doing well.

 

The fall off with the apple happens if the apple was not centered enough from a previous move/spawn by the extra letter guy's guard ghosts.

Perhaps we could revisit Gwobby Goes Hunting :)

 

Just need the graphics/player animations doing so get cracking ;)

I'm working on a platformer for this years abbuc, slow progress recently but it's still ticking over...

I briefly tried the "LEFT handed" mode of Mr. Do!.    A lifetime holding the base in my left hand and joystick in the right is too difficult a habit to break! 

 

Perhaps I'll tune up the Competition Pro (leaf switch version) and give that a try left-handed before the HSC round is over

 

Never noticed that option in Mr. Do! until I had need.

you can use that Quickshot Maverick right handed but the buttons are on the right side so it's a bit strange but I use it sometimes, it's much easier movement than other sticks ;)

 

I've updated the DK table with the recent scores and the season current standings, some of you got extra points due to the extra players!

It turns out that Mr. Do! is a "Monday game" for me, meaning the only day of the week where I can achieve even half decent scores is on Mondays. Rest of the week seems like a waste of time.

 

Mr. Do! - 41100 pts

Took me days to finally improve my own record. Still my biggest weakness is that I am too greedy. I should not try to get all the letters when it is too risky.

Improved to 429,600 wave 31 again so making more points, would have been better but the dreaded "dinner's ready" got me and the last two lives were sqaundered after the break!
