VGS NES Weekly Contest - Super Sprint!


Recommended Posts

Events Team · Posted

Lasses and Lads, be READY, for a week of FAST paced racing is upon us!

Our pilots will prove their mettle at the devious tracks of SUPER SPRINT!
They must prove who is the fastest of them all through the following rules:

  • Play till level 21
  • If you reach level 21, pause the game just as the race starts, without moving your car and take your picture
  • If you fail to make to level 21, pause the game just as the opponent's car gets the checkered flag and take your picture
  • Highest score wins
  • Genre: Racing

Now, hit the pedal to the metal!



The contest ends Sunday, 04/11/21 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.

Looks like high score matters more than progress? Just wanted to make sure. 

Yes. Highest score matters more. But the highest scores will likely be from people who reached stage 21 and used the wrenches for extra score.

Man, I have no frame of reference yet to know whether or not that's a good score.  I've always just played this game trying to get as far as I could before game over...

This was a pretty conservative run. I had been losing around level 18 when I was practicing, so I wanted to be sure I got through more than anything. I bought additional points a few times, but mostly spent wrenches on upgrades to the car, so there are tons of points left on the table.

I like this game quiet a bit! I might be pretty good at it too.

Agree! This is a fun game, though easy to make silly mistakes and its usually when you've been on a pretty consistent run only to miss going through a shortcut and losing the led.

No, I've never played F-1 race.

As for Super Sprint, me and overhead/isometric NES racers just don't get along. I was also horrible at RC Pro Am and Danny Sullivan's Indy Heat. But I might give Super Sprint some more tries this week.
