Good job!

 

Looking forward to you beating the game. Hopefully others will beat it as well. 😃

Nice score improvement!

 

I wonder who's going to beat this first.

Well, I was playing around on Mesen and just beat the Ultimate race.  Got a 20,000 bonus, and it deducted 20,000 because I died a lot.  😠

 

 

Total score was 60,800.   But... it was on emulator (the score I posted earlier was with real hardware and cart)   Are emulators allowed for these?  I know it says no emulator save states, which seems like its a "yes," but I wanted to find out for sure before posting a score playing on PC or RPi.

Yeah, emus are fine. Congrats on beating it! There's your answer @mbd30 hahaha.

 

  Sucks on the point deduction, I didn't know that was a thing 😕

Emulators are allowed, just can't cheat by using save states.

Yeah, you lose 1000 for every marble lost. But you can only lose up to 20k. Ideally you want to no death the game for highest score.

I might be able to improve that bit with luck, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get a "no death" run on this game.   I can finish the game 1 run out of every few now, though.  But there are just some spots that I have to just rely on luck to get past.

I finally hit 178k. It would have been 179,550 had I beat the game with 78 seconds left instead of 77. I'm having trouble finishing ultimate with 78 seconds these days.

 

Fortunately the rest of my game was really strong and with a couple wands.

Nice! What makes the wands come out by the way?

The game calculates something based on your controller inputs so they're effectively random. Nobody knows how to make them appear or not appear.

 

You can get a maximum of three wands per game, one wand per level, and you can't get a wand in the first and last races.

 

Stage two wand is the most valuable for high score. Stage two wands are pretty common.

 

If you get a wand on the catapult in aerial it soft locks the game and you have to reset.

Marble Madness- 41700

 

Keep running out of time at the end of level 6! I think I have enough time just making too many errors.

Not very confident I can improve on this one as I feel like I got every lucky bounce I can hope for already.
