Frog Slog, I mean Frog Bog update:

425 - Fixed

310 - D&T

Man I suck at this game! At least I spent some quality time with the misses at the end of my D&T game below. We called off the divorce...for now...

Everytime I fall in the water, which is a ton, I hit her disc and make her fall in the water too, since I have a second to do it. It’s pretty easy actually. I don’t know if it hurts or helps me because I am then focused on 2 controllers, but it’s my strategy for now. Who knows, it may be dumb. Lol.

So don’t I get 300 bonus points for keeping the misses from scoring? 😆

No, but you're probably sleeping on the living room lilipad tonight.

Eliminating the competition helps, there's only so many flies to go around.  I've had games where the computer had over 200 points.

I just tried putting the other controller on D&T, but after like 10 seconds it just reverts back to fixed arc and that frog becomes automatically controlled again. It's too bad they didn't set this game up with the option to just play it as one player instead of forcing two players.... 👎

That was good thinking. I like IntyFan's method of tapping the player 2 disc every once in a while to reset the computer AI on it.

Can't say it's really been that much of an impact to me, but it does add an extra luck element to a game that's already highly reliant on luck for high scores.  Guess it'd be easy enough to put the other controller on the ground and just tap the disc with your foot occasionally to keep it 'active'.  Please use socks though.  I ain't touchin' no controller that yo stank-ass bare feet have been all over.

Lol, if that's the worst thing to happen to these controllers in their 40-year lifespan, that's pretty good!

Since the player and the computer are vying for the same bugs, I see it as essentially playing against the machine, and therefore didn't even think of messing with the second player. But if it's considered "legal" for this hsc, I'm gonna try it and see if I do any better. I've been playing where I try to see how far I can get before the misses snags a fly.

Even in my most recent high-score games, the damn computer robbed me of SEVERAL tasty morsels. So, if it's like you say and we're playing against the computer, maybe it's not fair to mess with controller 2? I honestly have no idea. haha.

I've not touched the 2nd controller and got over 500 just fine, so I don't think it necessary, but I don't have a problem with someone sidelining the Missus.  If anything, she might actually be helping you out by getting new bugs to spawn more quickly.  It's pretty rare that she actually mid-jump kill steals from me.

Man, then I was very unlucky. There were several instances where the missus and I were almost perfectly overlapping in the air, with tongues outstretched, but SHE got the points.

Careful, I'm pretty sure that's how baby frogs get made.  Then you're seriously scrambling to get your own bugs.

Funniest thread yet in the HSC!  Lmao. Honestly, I don’t think it matters if you mess with the second controller or not. It obviously hasn’t helped me much. Lol. Pluses and minuses either way.

My Frog Bog Update: In the 565 D&T game I had 420 points when the sky turned orange, only needed another 180 for 600 and ofcourse I preceded to miss almost everything after that. 600 in D&T is VERY possible, everything just has to fall right. Since we have 10 more days of this I'm setting some personal goals. I want 500 in the Fixed Arc game and 600 in the D&T game. LET'S DO THIS!!!! 👍

 

Regular Level (Fixed Arc): 480 

Bonus Level: (Dir. & Tongue) 565 - UPDATED

Nicely done! Agreed 600 is very feasible, it's just another of those <1% outcomes. I've also had several games over 400 at sunset that then go to crap. 

 

Speaking of crap, I'm actually the white frog in this one. Revenge of the Missus!

Improved in the bonus game:

420 - D&T

I do agree that manual control is much better than the auto control once you get the hang of it. In auto, it’s just too painful to watch your frog miss everything.
