Bonus Games
These are optional games where you can earn up to 25 extra season points per game.  To claim a bonus, post your final score in the current game thread anytime during the season.  Feel free to post multiple times if your score improves as the season goes on.  +5 season points will be awarded, up to 25, for every run/goal you score over the CPU.  For example, if the final score is Player 3 and CPU 1 then points earned are calculated as (3 - 1) x 5 = 10.  An additional 5 points per game will be awarded to the player who submits the highest score differential.  The bonus for Golf will be +5 season points, up to 25, for each stroke under par and an additional 5 for the best score.

I'm not a fan of Donkey Kong 3 and I'm not good at it, but I'll still try to get in a score.

I might try this game. Is NES Online a legal emu?

 

If it is, here's my score:

Do you remember what round you got to? That's a killer score!

 

Will have to try with the NES Advantage, see if it replicates the arcade. I can zip through some levels super fast in that version.

Noice! Glad I started on this one early, got my work cut out for me.

 

And all I want to do is play more Wrecking Crew. Still have 72 levels to go 😂

This game is easy in the hardest way possible(does that makes sense?):15958986127343997605268385306662.thumb.jpg.82db2cb001d641060ad451ea33c98e99.jpg

Yeah, like if you get it just right, you can finish a level super fast, but then other times you have to quickly maneuver around the bees and damn it when that queen one explodes, haha.

I actually didn't notice I got a new high score during this run (Ignore the scum on the screen, I didn't wipe it off when the photo was taken):15959590876025377020305755886883.thumb.jpg.863bb611dbd07c93dfbe382ca8c371f2.jpg

Nice! Welcome to the 10-0 club, hahaha. I gave it another go the other day and I can't seem to win by more than 10 goals. The game isn't very good, hah. Better than Baseball tho, what trash, lol.

This game is more fun than I remembered, but still extremely repetitive.

Do you realize that the Twin Galaxies high score for this game is over five million points??

 

His hands must have been ready to fall off after that marathon.

Tried the NES Advantage...no advantage...horrible. Back to the classic controller and I somehow beasted my last score. Maybe my hands were glad to be using the regular controller again?
