HSC19 (2022) R1: DONKEY KONG

Recommended Posts

Looks like you lose ~500 points from the bonus every time you grab the hammer.  So you need to hammer at least 2 enemies to about break even.   I find on the second level (blue metal) if you grab the hammer without 2 enemies around you can lose points.   To make it worth the risk I think you need to hammer >=3 enemies.

With one hammer - I got 13 of then on the pie screen (including pies as enemies) :grin:

 

@Rogerpoco excellent post above :thumbsup: I guess for anyone who played the arcade version this one might be a bit quirky!  - there is the recentish DK arcade we will probably play that one next time we feel the need to keep it interesting. Yes Ski-It is one of my games. I'm hoping to resurrect my [assembler project] it's been on hold for 2 years project soon as I have half a game in limbo.

 

Now let's see how the Round 2 polling is going...

Must try harder, but got to watch the eyes.

 

Probably take a back seat this season 😞

Nice to hear from you RT. Best Wishes for 2022 :thumbsup:

 

161,000

Managed to get past L5 pie and then fell apart under the pressure of being in the lead! That's what the HSC does to you :o

Tried to break 100k but no luck.

 

However I finally understand why Jumpman/Mario after dealing with these frustrating levels resorted to capturing Donkey Kong and designing a yet more frustrating course to watch Donkey Kong jr deal with.  Pay back!

Yes I figured he'd turned evil :)

18,100. I thought I did pretty ok until I saw the other scores 😄

You're only 400 points behind a 6 year old (to turn 7 by the end of February).

Welcome back to more former HSCers :thumbsup:

 

Reminder this round ends Mon 7th Feb 10pm UK time. We're running to/from Mondays this season, let's see if I can manage that!

Seriously like one pixel away from clearing this stupid level.  😂

Even though I am a bit beyond 6 (rather that shy of it tenfold) I am glad to ease @carlsson's anxiety of ending up last by ending up with 13.100. (Played on Atari800MacX with a Saitek joypad.)

* If you missed this first round llate scores are accepted :waving:

Somehow I held on for the win on round  1 with deteacher in runner up spot and the usual suspects making up the top 5 places, thanks for so many of you playing, 32 of us as I type. Special thanks to those lower down the table, you are just as important, even if it's one go with a bad eye, much appreciated :thumbsup:

 

I could play DK for another week, really enjoyed playing it collecting everything, less frustrating than trying to get through the levels quickly.

 

We'lll probably pick up a few late scores so the points may change slightly before the end of the 2nd round, talking of which let's get that show on the road or possibly underground?!!

McKong set a new HSC record 248,100 on standard play (not collecting everything) in the old days I'd give him a bonus point but where's the fun in that I ask you?!!! :evil:

🙂   I'll try and play what I can over the season... but will most likely be aiming for the Lanterne rouge.
