Let the Game begin!

 

Remember:

 

Post scores often (it makes it more fun that way).

Use only NEW scores.

Smack talk... like, 'YOUR ARE GOING DOWN"!

IF YOU LOSE... it is not over. You will be put into the Paper Medal Knockout Tourney!

 

And most of all..... Have fun!

Haha, so I wanna say, @Lauren Tyler "YOU ARE GOING DOWN!", but I don't have that much confidence in this game. Looking back at the original round, you scored one place above me, so it'll be as much of a fair fight as it can be, I suppose. I will say this, "YOU ARE GOING to play defender II/stargate."

 

And @Vocelli, I'm guessing you're still updating the post, but...when does this first round end?

@fakecortex I was just lucky.  Either way, we'll see how well this turns out! May the best player win!

 

EDIT: First score, 33,750

 

I found by taking my time and focusing on zapping enemies while making sure to help humanoids in distress worked better than rushing around!

Oh snap, more than double your original score! Noice. Thanks for the tip!

Yeah, keep your ears open for the humanoids calling for help.  But don't rush around in an attempt to save the humanoids from being captured.  Just take your time and if you hear a humanoid, immediately try to locate it.  If you find a stargate, it will take you to the nearest humanoid in distress.

 

Slightly higher score: 35,000


@fakecortex - Don't give up! I'm sure you're gonna give me a run for my money!

Pole Position  -  60,660

 

Surprised to see I'm still in it after missing the last few weeks and my score not being added the week before that, but may as well try to finish off strong now that I have a little time!

New score: 44,400

 

@fakecortex - Your score may not be as big as mine, but you're getting better.  You're giving me a run for my money already!

 

Keep at it! You'll get better!

Ok, now I want to own this one. I can also imagine that it's a very different game when you use the right joystick. Got a quick game in this morning, and I'm glad I did:

Game plays a bit differently when all your humanoids are DEAD. I'd do a fun challenge where you start off killing them all on purpose and then play for a high score. When I get frustrated, I knock 'em all off. I am a vengeful god.

OK, now I can see I'll have to bust out all my skills! You're giving me a real run for my money!

And yeah, things change if all the humans die.  After a certain number of waves, though, they are resurrected/reincarnated/whatever, and the planet surface returns.

Run for your money, eh? Wanna make this interesting? Haha 💸

 

Anyway, chose to switch things up and play some Defender II instead 😆 Things get SO HECTIC at the end.

No increase tonight, but I did manage to make it to wave 10 and my humanoids replenished...except I was at my last life, and you know how that goes. I am consistently scoring in the 50Ks, which I am very pleased with, considering where I started.

Ok, I'll stop spamming this thread now that I've gotten a *slightly* higher score. I am really liking this game now (even with this wacky 1 joystick challenge...but it's all I know haha). I had like 4 extra lives when I lost (accidentally shot!) my last humanoid, and man can those lives go quick once that happens.

 

Oh yeah, and back to Stargate 😆

My pulse still hasn't stopped racing.

 

Holy moly, nice! That’s a freakin’ leap. Once all the humanoids are gone, the score doesn’t increase fast, and that’s always happening to me in the late 50Ks, letting me squeeze out a little more. But 71k? Oof, I feel like I’ll need to keep those little guys alive for a few more waves.

Don't worry @Lauren Tyler, you're still in the lead 😝

 

Yeah, it's only 50 points, but I played for so long... Anyway, I was really just gonna ask, are you typically able to warp twice in a row (1 to 4, 4 to 7)? I'm able to once in a while, but it doesn't necessarily give me my highest scores. I find that around wave 8 and 9 my humanoids start dropping like flies and my lives are soon to follow. If I manage to survive past the humanoids, the attacks are crazy and the cheap deaths come fast. I'm trying to hold on through till the end of wave 10 and then have my little guys replenish. Do you happen to know if they will replenish on wave 11 even if you have *gasp* 1 left going in? Or do you have to *double gasp* kill your last guy to get em all back? I think that's actually the case based on what the manual says as well as my experimenting with wave 6 when they're restored the first time.

 

And of course, back to Defender II. Gotta keep things interesting.
