124,450

Didnt want to post before getting to 100k and I was starting to worry I may not get there. I was on a mad rush when a plane flew behind my boat and shot me down with four large missles in a row??!

Nice progress!

The whirlpools are one of the most obnoxious obstacles in the game.

Waterfalls on surival stagss Im starting to figure out. But the waterfalls and everything else about the jump the river stage are completely insane. Ive only tried a few times, but Im not even close. I dont see me beating that on one life, which doesn't leave a lot of room to grow score. 

Also, I know now its not actually called jump the river, but my term well embodies the ridiculousness of that level

POW is the next game that I know well. At least I can 1cc that one, I've never no deathed it. Maybe this year I'll finally no death it.

Gradius II and Galaga coming up. Tough shooters. Actually there are a few tough games coming up. Thunder & Lightning looks hard, it's similar to Arkanoid. Holy Diver is infamous for its difficulty. I assume RC Pro Am II will be hard just like the first one.

I might have to wait until next season to have a better chance, but I could have an outside shot.

Leaderboard is wide open. All three of you, @docile tapeworm, @Richardhead, and you have an easy road just finding top 8 each week. And all 3 of you should if you can. More hope for dick and doug than docile, but it would be great to see all veterans

The second half of the schedule is heavier with games that I'm familiar with so that helps. It would still take some solid top 5 or better finishes to make up enough ground in the standings.

Great score! Do you think you will finish the game by Sunday?

I doubt it. The last few levels aren't worth that many points anyway. Maybe I can get 500k or 600k. I'm already pretty happy with my score.

How far through the game is this? Im thinking we can chalk this up to a game no one will be you at, like tetris and MM. May be off as I haven't played through that much of it. But that seems monstrous on 1 life. 

 

Hey, speaking of Tetris, I recently got my first 500k from a level 18 start. I was happy about that.

I may have to learn to flip both ways if I want to get good at level 19 though.

I'm probably going to take the weekend off since I did a lot better than I thought I would. Maybe I'll check out some upcoming games on the schedule.

Like @Jeevan, Im about to head out for vacation and cant get all I need done before leaving. Lots of rain in forecast this weekend, so I may end up with NES time like it or not. Iffy though. If I do get back to it, any advice on JUMP THE RIVER on one life? That shit is crazy

Much like the turbo tunnels in Battletoads, I'd say it's an equal combination of quick reflexes and luck.
