Eyyyy. I’ve been feeling bad about this one not getting more time. Looking forward to it!

FWIW, continues are implemented by starting from a different bridge from the start screen, so it can’t be both start at level 1 and continues allowed. Unless there’s some huge point bonus for beating the game, though, I think there is no way to even be competitive if you don’t start from bridge 1.

 

Particularly great music on this one, @Songbird! Quite a variety too.

 

I did notice an extremely minor bug… not sure how I caused it. Bad sram write?

So the "minor bug" is the current score is 10 points higher than the high score? I haven't seen that before. What value do you see for high score after reboot?

 

Thanks for the kind words on the music! I really enjoyed writing all of those tunes and giving some variety both to the regular gameplay and the boss battles.

Yep! It’s too late, I blew that score away many times now :)

Good points; I think people will naturally just figure this out as they play.  The highest score you can muster wins the round!

Wow, I was not expecting to be top of the pack after my first try! :D Note that I did not reach bridge 23 on this try; that was from a previous game a long time ago. On this run I started on bridge 1, beat two bosses, then died probably at bridge 12 or so.

Do you guys like the "file folder" look of the copyright & instruction screens? That was my idea in keeping with the anachronistic theme. :)

I certainly do! It’s a really nice looking, sounding, and playing game. I think it’s a must-have.
 

I have given up on the high score chase for right now and am trying to get as far into the game as I can.

You definitely need to keep progressing; it's really fun to take on the later bosses.

 

We intentionally wanted to give people multiple ways to play. You can start at bridge 1 and go for high score, continue from your last bridge to keep pushing to the next one to "beat the game" at bridge 20, or push it to the limit from bridge 21 with no saves.

Yes; fits the game perfectly! Windows 3.1 sort of feel :) 

 

Can you shoot the tanks on the sides of the river, is that possible; or are you just trying to avoid them?

I have not shot a tank yet, FWIW, and I got to bridge 18 or something.

Actually every object in the game is destructible; just very tricky to hit anything on the shore as you need the right kind of curved shoreline first to make that possible. We should have added in-game achievements for shooting tanks, trees, etc. :D

And also if you hit the edge of the river you crash so EXTRA risky to go after them i suppose.  Good to know though!

Great round everyone!  Congrats to @Songbird for the new high score; which has been added to the Lynx High Score tables. 

 

Congrats to the season winners:

 

#1:  @Rick Dangerous (by sheer virtue of steady participation)

 

#2: @doctor_shred a strong competitor in this and Jaguar HSC's!

 

#3: @jeremiahjt a perennial strong player also!

 

I hope you guys all enjoyed the quite lengthy "mini season" and now I hand things back over to @roadrunner for the Lynx HSC.  It has been fun; and I look forward to playing and perhaps guest hosting in the years ahead again.  In the meantime come see us over at the Jaguar HSC where i will remain host.  Cheers, and congrats again the winners (everyone who participated and had fun!!)

If you want to keep running the Lynx HSC that's fine by me.
I haven't been playing in these HSC's at AA for awhile.

Well it's very labor intensive and time consuming...but i'm up for it!  Gotta have the Lynx HSC. 

 

I'll tell everyone what; i'm moving to South Carolina this weekend, so the next week or two will be a little hectic.   Lets take a short break, and when time allows i'll get things in gear and start up another season.
