Video Game Sage Homebrew Leader Board Competition 2020

Welcome to the first official VGS Homebrew Leader Board Competition (HBLBC).  The purpose of this competition is to figure out who is the best, not by talk or machoness, but by a series of gaming feats in strength, intellect, and twitch skills.  For the one who comes out on top, you will be crowned champion 2020, brag all you like with such a sweet title, and will be given a badge for all to envy until the end of time.  Whenever your name is mentioned, it comes with the recognition of the First VGS Homebrew Champion. 

-And now on to the competition-

 

HBLBC Moderators:

@Deadeye

@Scrobins

 

Overview:

There will be a regular season of 9 games, that are available as free downloaded ROMs, followed by a final season of 3 games.  Some of the games were released as physical carts as well.  Using the physical carts instead of the ROM files is okay.  Eligibility for the final season is determined by your ranking during the regular season.  Amount of players for the final season is TBD.

 

Prize:

Final Prize - A HBLBC Badge that can be added to your signature footer.  Bragging Rights.

Intermediate Prizes – Several to be given throughout the competition.  Prize and rules will be announced in the month’s game thread.  Announcement of prize may come at any time during the round.

4. Scores must be submitted within the posted time frame.

6. Use one post for your score.  You can submit as many as you like by editing your original post.  You can bump the thread to announce your new score.

 

Rules:

1. NTSC only, no PAL.  This will create a level playing field and not create differences based on timing.

2. OEM, FPGA, and clone consoles are OKAY.

4. No save states allowed.

5. Flashcarts (i.e. Everdrive / Power Pak) are OKAY.

7. No game genie codes.

8. Do not use glitches in the game to boost your score.

 

Cheating:

You should all know that cheating is not allowed.  The HBLBC moderators reserve the right for a video verification routine in order to prevent cheating.  Don’t take it personal if video verification is requested, the request does not mean that cheating is already determined.  If a participate suspects another player of cheating, send the HBLBC moderators a PM.  Your identity will be not be posted publicly in the competition thread.   

 

Be Kind To Others:

Discussion and friendly banter is okay, but refrain from posts that are attacks or disrupt the competition.  If the competition moderators feel that someone is behaving improperly, the person will be removed from the competition.

 

*All rules are subject to change at any time due to unforeseen circumstances.

 

This competition was put together by the VGS Administrator, Events Team, and the HBLBC Moderators.  Thank you for joining in and have fun!

Nice, Shmup Speed got the most participants. Clearly it is thus, the best game. There's really no arguing about it, the pudding is in the puddle.

Indeed! Clearly you need to make a sequel, maybe maintaining a certain level of presses per second during boss fights increases the power of your weapons or reduces the damage you take.
