Kendallsoft Kaverns on NYD 2018 :evil:

Another time we could all make some new levels for a round eh?

 

so it seems Boulderdash is a Marmite "love it or hate it " game, so let's survey HSC players:

me I love both (you cannot be neutral so pick!) my theory is Marmite lovers love boulderdash too II too !

Love Marmite, don't love BD

Like I wrote before, I like Boulder Dash as a concept, but not the biggest fan in terms of the actual games. Sure, levels that are just enough challenging so one can figure out how to solve them are good but at one point I tend to move to do something else.

 

No idea about Marmite but I love smörgåskaviar which supposedly is something only Swedes understand why you should eat.

Ha that does not look like something I'd enjoy eating. But then I guess I shouldn't say that until I've tried it! Next time I'm in Sweden, maybe...!

is that that fermented stuff you see on all the travel shows, might become valuable in the apocalypse

Love it :)

and level making would be great.

 

Bit like what we all did with Rally Speedway :).... would love to play that again.

 

me too (let's start a movement!) so there's plenty to be doing guys :thumbsup:

 

I'm hitting the rocky slopes again today, need to schedule in about 5 hours!

No, smörgåskaviar is salty and smoked, not fermented. You're probably thinking about surströmming, the fermented herring that people abroad like to import and then eat as a challenge, often the completely wrong way which makes it even more foul to consume than it otherwise would be. Not that I'm eating surströmming myself, I think it smells horrible but alas there are ways to alleviate it rather than aggravate it like many YouTubers tend to.

Kids and myself like Kalles Kaviar as a breadspread, which is probably the ‚light‘ version. Sold at IKEA here, although they dropped the striped version years ago and never carried the others. Very convenient as it can be kept in the fridge for months.

Yeah, there was a guy here on AA who wanted me to ship him a few tubes to the US but I never got as far as finding a reasonable way to ship it (since it needs to be refridgerated) before he had attracted enough wrath from the mods to get permanently banned. Standard Kalles is the definition, then there are some even milder and a few a little stronger like Kalles Guld (yes, that is gold in Swedish) and a couple luxury brands with roe from more premium fishes but I don't think it is worth paying extra for.

It should of course be kept in mind that any kind of doping, be it fish- or yeast-based, is strictly prohibited for HSC participants!

Too bad you missed out - we played Food Fight as recently as December 2019.

I was a little hesitant about playing this game for levels. It is one of those sacred games for me as we played it a ton in the 80's. Not sure what it is but I didn't want to do this one in a competition. But, I suppose I have no excuses this time around. For my first listing, I completed A through M level 1 so far.

Completed A1 thru D4, although I think I scored lower than @therealbountybob

 

With all this talk of Marmite and smörgåskaviar, maybe we need to add Food Fight to the HSC list.

 

Great work :thumbsup: lower score probably equals better play, though I am very very greedy and always get am much as I can!

Effectively we (some of us) are playing form the start each time so it should work out ok for anyone struggling with the game to at least get a few levels under their belts and make a contest of it.

 

*Luckily I played again last night, well I started in the afternoon and survived a wobble near the end of level 2, then recovered to reach C4 where I got to on my last good go, passed that then got to G4 and burned through all of my lives and thought I was out... but I had one extra life collected and got it together and beat that (I can see why this is where the Mighty Scalak got to for the HSC record) but then I eventually met my match on the dreaded cave M - very tricky, looks like another go or two needed this next week! I managed to do most of the bonus screens, just the one with the 6 boxes to figure out, also still not figured out the trick to the one with the packs of firefly+butterfly+2boulders, there is a trick (better read up!)

 

Completed A1-L4 score 49,300

 

How about a fun Challenge: Most diamonds collected on Cave B1 :)

Think I had 110 but there are more possible.

 

Next Poll - soon!

Still can't decide if the game is a bit slicker on the 25th aniv. ver.  Players might find the faster speed on level 2 or 3 is more playable than level 1 :ponder: C'mon C1 isn't too hard you guys :)

The Round 6 poll is open!

Those bonus screens are tricky but keep it interesting when you are ploughing through the levels and as it gets tight you need the lives, sort of like Block on Legs the 9 lives max cap works out quite well as they ebb abd flow and add to the pressure on  a long run.

 

Did you make it all the way through level 1 from the start? A1-G2 or just hitting the start points?

 

"Use the grab" :idea:

Just using the starts points as and when.

I'll try some of the levels on the higher speeds, but I've found that if you walk away from the game for a day or two, you have to "re-learn" the levels.  Ugh...

 

EDIT:  Finished A2 and B2.

I managed 98 diamonds on B/1.

 

I also somehow solved C/1 though I thought I would be one diamond short. I also figured out D/1 but too late so I ran out of time, so I can't claim I finished that level yet.

Whew!  Time for a break.  I actually had to switch joysticks.  Started to get glitchy going up.  Burned through a Best Supply rebuilt stick in one day of hard use.  Here's what I've completed so far:

 

A1 through P1

A2 through M2
