My goal is to roll the score.

I'm not there yet, but getting closer...

Tips:

-The coconuts won't hurt you on the first 3 rounds when you are all the way up (in the manual)

-on round 4-9, you can kind of tell if the coconuts are going to fall high, middle, or low. They also seem to usually fall where you're standing. So, you can stand all the way up, the coconuts will fall high- then you can move lower to avoid them. 

-If a monkey gets you, the jump button will only work every other time. Make sure it's going to work before jumping the chasm.

-Once on top, you can hug the right wall for points. You can go diagonally up and down for more points.

-Once the victory music starts, you can keep walking for points. However, you'll die if you go up too far. Also, your sprite will glitch if you go down too far and you won't be able to jump for the rest of the game.

-On later levels, the fish move up and down. It looks like they're going under water, but that's the easiest time to jump on them.

20210804_153422.thumb.jpg.793d5a08b1b0df2a1056f1e0677d29df.jpg- There is one scanline where the rhinoceros can't get you and you don't trigger the victory music. Just the bottom of your foot will be on the narrow path. You can walk left or right (carefully) for points.

-The level maxes out at 9.

 

New score: 403,730

Thanks for the tips. Great score.  This game requires getting a good technique and consistency.    I get into a good run only to defocus and lose all my lives quickly.   Have not had a chance to get back to the game.  Hopefully later this week.

Same here- fortunately, the timer is generous. When I start losing focus, I'll put my guy in a safe spot and walk away for a few seconds- get a drink, use the toilet, or just stretch my legs. Then I come back refreshed and ready for more punishment lol.

 

Edit: 423,920

Well here is some improvement, but still not enough to catch Gbag score

Final score (I hope!) 666,000.

That monkey is evil!

Great score!  I gave it another try today but too many silly errors to get a higher score.   I might give it another try but your score will be significantly difficult to beat.    

 

Of note,  I hear that congo bongo tune as I walk through the hallway at home.  It will take some time to get that out of my head!

My one and only submission this time. I'm surprised I had 20 minutes to play, tbh. Way too much going on 😞 I won't be playing again this round, @Vocelli . If you can top 675, I will concede. (I'm actually rooting for you LOL!)

 

Birthday Mania - 675

Well @ZilchSr  I will have to concede ☹️

 

Going into the brackets I thought to myself there are maybe 2 games I DO NOT want to play.... This was one of them.

I knew I didn't have a chance with Birthday Mania... Lucky for me there is the Paper Medal!

 

Congrats!

Dishaster: 34320

 

I may play a few more times between now and midnight.  If I improve, I'll post another update, but I expect this will end up being my best game.

Congrats @toiletunes!  This was a tough game for me.   Good luck in the next round.    Off to the paper metal round I go (with that congo bongo tune still stuck in my head!)

OK! We have a match for the Wild Card pick.

 

Both Players on their 3rd pick have chosen No Escape!

There we no other matches.

 

Good Luck!

I know I'm outclassed on this one, but maybe I'll get the knack. In the meantime, baby steps-

10,650. The no bonus lives thing gets me, especially when I spawn in a no win situation. It ain't over till it's over...

No Escape: 6332

 

This game is definitely not like remembering how to ride a bicycle.  The first couple games felt like I'd never played it before.

 

I have a busy weekend ahead of me, so I likely won't have much time to try to improve on this until mid-late next week.

No Escape: 156850

 

I had a couple breakthrough games today. 

 

Once you earn 10k points or so, the bonus points earned at the end of each round increase by a couple orders of magnitude (typically 12-14k points per round).

 

The difficulty also doesn't seem to change once you get to this point.  I actually felt the game became easier since once I got used to the timing, I didn't have to make strategy adjustments from one round to the next.
