Looks like a couple more players may join us, I need a forum power upgrade so I can send a (mild) electric shock to the other people I've emailed to spur them back into HSC life :evil:

Tried again last night after a few days and practice really makes perfect! I think I have to call my score good for this round, because my brain was so out of Nibbler mode I barely could make it past Round 7-8! Haha

344,430 I'm going to see if I can get higher. If I do I will post a picture. 

Without any mind bending substances (apart from a black tea)

 

And...

Nibbletrbb.thumb.jpg.9957d9360ef0ffdb0730b84b3990c065.jpg

Made it to the speed reset on wave 38, then was ok but wasted too many lives as the slower speed catches you out too often. 1,952,900 Wave 60 😜

 

The man vs snake doc is pay only in the UK is that the same as in the US?

Seems to be free in the US only, in Canada I couldn't get it for free either.  Unless you visit one of those less reputable sites where such things are exchanged more freely...

Sheesh! Well, I suppose reaching 4% of the highest score is good enough this time.

4% - good job i'm taking tomorrow off from playing :)

 

Assuming the arcade Nibbler is the same I think it's geared nicely to amassing the lives to get through the high speed levels, then build up again, I could see the billion points could be possible, didn't notice if, or not, there were changes on the 2nd loop through. Wonder if the A8 version has more digits coded for the score :ponder:

Nibbler: 418,340 (level 28 - NTSC)

 20210130_212155.thumb.jpg.b00022bf6ccec9da69eea3351be29831.jpg

 

One last score... I thought I was done, but finally cracked 400k. 

At about level 27, the game literally starts to feel out of control. Like I'm not steering the snake anymore, I'm just hanging onto the stick and hoping I grab some dots. 😅

 

(This score brought to you by Diet Mountain Dew.)
