Rainbow Islands - 338,180

 

Kind of surprised how unfamiliar I am with this considering it’s the sequel to Bubble Bobble.  Interesting game, although I get the impression there are tons of points I’m missing by running through the boards.

For Captain America do we continue 2 times?

I found that confusing too.  You set the DIPs to “3 lives” but the game ends when you die once.  
 

Regardless, let’s keep it at no continues to be consistent.

If anyone figures out how to shoot multiple rainbows in a row in RS, please let me know. I've done it but I have no idea how I did.

Captain America - 79,001

Rainbow Islands - 73,460

 

Brawlers is one of my favourite genres but I just don't feel CA. Odd game. All these superheroes feel so weak... Still, it's a kinda interesting change from the normal brawler template.

 

Rainbow Islands is pure genius on the other hand, I finally "got" it, after not understanding it at all while playing all the computer ports. It seems like one of these games which take weeks/months to truly master, and I've only got a few hours :)

Captain America and the Avengers 5,200. Mainly just posting this to get a score on the board. Holy crap what a cheap quarter-gobbler, although I admit I enjoyed playing with Vision. Off-topic but somewhat relevant: video games that started with that FBI warning "Winners don't use drugs" just made me want to do drugs out of spite.

This up for anyone to join, or gotta sign up somewhere?  I've been interested in the HS clubs I see on here, but can never seem to catch them at the beginning and always tell myself "I'll get in on the next one."  I've always loved Cap and the Gang, so feels like a good place to start.

 

I checked out the pinned rules thread, but have 2 quick questions, please --

 

1)  Do I choose one of the 2 games to submit for this round?  Or do I submit a score for both?

2)  The rules say that games will run for 1 week each, but the message listed above says we have until July 12.  This mean I need to submit a score for Cap by today (one week from the posting), and Rainbow Islands by July 12th (date listed above), or we have until July 12th for both (assuming we enter a score for both)?

 

Thanks!
