Season 17 Round 13 - Donkey Kong 3

Recommended Posts

@bubufubu How do you handle those big bugs that explode when you kill them? They get me A LOT 😡 Do you try to avoid them or are you really good at dodging their stingers? I'd imagine you have to have a pretty tight pattern down to roll the score.

 

PS I don't know how I scored so well yesterday. Today's session was a frustrating mess. I guess I should be happy with my pb...

Thanks.  I got into a real groove on my last life.  I wasn't very happy with my first score, but I hadn't played the game in years so I was rusty.

 

I'm just about to broadcast some more score attempts.  You're more than welcome to come watch.  Maybe you can pick up a few tips.  Cheers.

I just learned something watching a clip of your gameplay... I had no idea that the levels had a set number of bugs. I thought you had to spray DK all the way to the top in order to complete the level. This changes everything. I die so often jumping and shooting at him because I want to finish the level, but now I can try focusing on all the bugs instead and just keeping him at bay. This is insane. Thanks!

Unfortunately, my ISP or modem/router is giving me garbage upload speeds so the casts were rife with frame loss.  I tried to tough it out but it continued to get worse and worse.  This put the kibosh on casting for now.  Sorry for those who tuned in.  Just bad luck, I suppose.

 

@fakecortex  Glad you were able to learn something.  I wasn't sure anyone would be able to get steady enough video to pick up on my strategies.  I was expecting to have much better attempts but the upload speed and being on hold for my ISP kept taking away my focus.  Might try again later tonight.

Haven't been able to break 200k since, but I am getting better at dodging the exploding bees and not rushing higher stages. Gotta take a break when it gets frustrating. Nice increase @bubufubu!

@fakecortex   Thanks!  It's a personal best for me.  A couple of my deaths were silly mistakes.  I'll probably give it another go or two later today.

I put together a youtube playlist of selected tracks from this season! Some music was either too repetitive or long to include, but what's there should make for a nice mix to have on in the background during work or when playing a game without music (Golf?!). Hope ya enjoy! Great season everyone!

Congrats Tempest!

 

You're much better at the black box games and sports games than I am.
