There were magazines such as Nintendo Power that often contained maps and strategy guides,  and kids sharing tips. That was the equivalent of the internet back then.

Magazines were our internet back then. Instead of getting an instant answer from Google, you had to write to Nintendo Power and wait a month or two to get a letter back in the mail.

Well I broke 20k. woo. I keep telling myself to be patient, but that green guy who resets tiles? He eats my patience like it's popcorn.

I agree. He gets worse on the levels where you have to jump on the tiles multiple times.

It's only Thursday, so I'm sure that there's still time to improve the scores. I barely get through the levels past 3-1 as well though, which is why I called this a lucky run.

I might give it another shot if I have time. The way the scores are looking, it might take 70k+ just to make the top 8.

I'm a bit mad with how this run ended. I lost so many lives on 5-3. I had an opportunity to sacrifice a life the finish the level with 2 lives left, but didn't take it.

Fun game. I'd like to get good at this game, but I don't know if I have enough time to.

Rules question

I'm currently on a run that got down to life 0. I took a picture and kept going for practice. In my playing I got an extra life bringing me back to 1 extra life. Can I play out this extra life until I get back to life 0 and count it for my submission?

  • Play until Life 0.  As soon as you get to Life 0, you must stop playing the game and take your picture.  You may not play any of the game on Life 0 or your score will be disqualified

 

The rules are pretty clear on this, no you cannot.

Hell no. THE hell no.
Got life 0, take your picture and your run ENDED.
If you decided to keep practising after it, fine, but your run came to an end as soon as you hit life 0 for the first time.

That's Richard's place? Nice shaggy carpet extending all through the stairs! Is that a banana peel on the floor?

It's good to see you're alive. We can call off that Colorado search party now. You had us all worried sick!

Updated score on page 2 to something less embarrassing. Still participation territory. Seeing that top 8 will probably require 60-65k at least and the tiles no longer stay the color you want them to at 3-1, im probably calling it a week. Hope everyone is having a great fourth of July. Time to pop some bud lights and blow some stuff up.

Nice score. I think I'm in a similar position with my score and progress. There's still time to play, but I don't see myself scoring 60k. I really like this game though. It's enjoyable! If only Q*Bert had an RPG... 🤔
