VGS NES Weekly Contest 2021 - Super Mario 3


Recommended Posts

Events Team · Posted


It is TIME! The time you all have been waiting for. The time for the grandest event of the year to start.
A fresh new start for all our competitors. A new chance to be crowned VGS CHAMPION! New genre badges to be earned to prove they are the VERY BEST in a certain game genre!
It is TIME for our players to show the results of their training during the down time.

@guillavoieand I are proud and honoured to present and start the VGS NES WEEKLY CONTEST 2021!

And... we start off with a CLASSIC! Super Mario Bros 3!


I bet all the evil turtle hoppers are ready to hop till Bowser's fortress, aren't you all?

Here's the evil, wicked, twisted rules that SMB3 will run under:

  • One life only
  • If you die, take your picture at the world map so we can assess progress
  • Play till you beat world 1
  • If you skip stage 4, take a picture of the world map when Bowser's warship spawn to show that you skipped it.
  • If you beat world 1, take your picture at the start of world 2
  • Progress + Highest score wins
  • Participation: Beat stage 1 with a score of at least 15,000
  • Genre: Platformer

I hope you all are READY FOR THIS CHALLENGE!!! And be happy I am not making you play as green Mario!

The contest ends Sunday, 03/21/20 at 11 PM VGS time.  Your user name MUST be written or typed on a piece of paper and be in the picture for your score to be valid.  The entire TV screen, or computer monitor if you are playing on an emulator, MUST be in the picture for the score to be valid.  No partial screenshots will be considered or accepted.  No screenshots by hitting "print screen" on a computer will be allowed.  You must take a picture of your computer monitor.  There may be instances where this will be acceptable, but it will be at the discretion of myself and the contest organizers.  Also, the use of turbo controllers is forbidden, as well as any cheat codes, Game Genies, slow motion functions, or save states if playing on an emulator.  Also, we will only be using NTSC systems for the contests.  The use of PAL systems will NOT be allowed.  Good luck everyone and have fun.

okay new newer score here.  But I won’t lie I’m out of gas.  1-5 is my large deficit spot but I just can’t even



Hmm I was just looking to practice and ended up putting up a decent run so why not I’ll post.  If Switch ain’t allowed if someone could let me know and I’ll remove, wasn’t totally clear based on the rules, either way I wanna use the real deal as things get underway I’m sure I can top this

Well, since I didn't join VGS Survivor this season due to a vacation I'll be taking next month, figure I'll participate in the weekly and hone my skills. First run, didn't die but far from Krunch's score. Gonna try to squeeze some more points out of it.

I surely hope that doing a score run in those rules take a lot less time than usual.
It is what I was aiming for with them.

These rules are given two big thumbs up from the resident ADDer. Speaking of which, I didnt read them all the way through this afternoon and played well into level 3 before figuring out that I am a moron.
