VGS Weekly Contest - Ghosts 'n Goblins


Recommended Posts

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
Welcome to THE VERY LAST weekly contest game for this season!
And what a fitting finale right before our most expected tournament!

This week, our players have it easy, having to compete for high score on the easiest NES game ever conceived, GHOSTS 'N GOBLINS!

Without further ado, here's the SPOOKY rules for this not at all spooky game:

  • Play until Game Over
  • You must power up your NES before each of your run to reset the drop pattern correctly.
  • You may collect each 1-up only once.  In the second loop of the game, you will be allowed to collect each 1-up one time as well.
  • Looping from stage 6 to stage 5 by not having the shield is forbidden
  • Highest score wins
  • Participation: 5,000
  • GENRE: Action

The tournament details will be made public during the course of the next two weeks. Players, be prepared!

The contest ends Sunday, 10/25/20 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.

It doesn't matter for me anyway.  I don't need the points.  I'm ready for the tournament and to be done already.  Not to be a downer, but I'm not in the greatest place right now.

Honestly, I'm not either. I'll likely be tied up for a bit. I'm hoping that it doesn't cut into tournament time.

      LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, it is TIME!
      Time for some fast paced action that will leave you all glued to your seats.
      Today, our 15 heroes start to compete to see who will prevail!
      5 of them will FALL in disgrace and dishonour this week.

      Be prepared, for they will tackle a CLASSIC, Alien Syndrome!
      Here's the rules they will have to follow to secure their scores... and their survival!
      Play 1 player mode You can play with either character 1 life only Pause the game as soon as you die and take your picture If you beat the game, you have a very short time to take your picture at the score tally screen. Be prepared  Highest score wins Best of luck to our challengers. They will need it.

      It is time to GET SPOOKY! October is upon us. SPOOOOKYYYY!
       
      So to start this scary season, nothing better than an horrific game, Monster In My Pocket!
      Since our players are scared shirtless, here's the rules already:
      1 life only 1 player only Choose whichever character you want Stage progress followed by high score is what determines your placing. If you make to the final boss, take your picture at the start of the fight. Your run ends there. Max score is 9,500. If you pass over it, your score is 9,490 and your run ends there. In case of 9,490 points ties, progress will determine who wins. If you hit exactly 9,500, you may proceed till the final boss without killing anything else... if you can. Any score picture taken at the boss screen takes precedence over 9,500+ points scores. Reaching the boss is a sure way to secure a top 8 spot. If you make to the final boss with 9,500, you earn the 1st place for this week. Several people can tie for 1st this week. Participation: 500 The contest ends Sunday, 10/11/20 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.
