Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

That's a very good point. When you feel you have been killed unjustly, the temptation is stronger for "just one more go...", whereas when you feel you've reached your skill limit... not so much ;) I still think it's a shame they came out of the hat together. Now I have to try and beat my score :oops:

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

I think you guys may have enjoyed this more if you hadn't just had 2 weeks of Frenzy.

It's a shame :(

Having said that I'm stuck in a rut and can't seem to improve my score from yesterday.

This is why I never join video game championships.
Fill small areas quickly and large areas slowly.
Also a "split bonus" achieved slowly gives you 1000 points instead of 100... ;)

You get extra lives every 10,000

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

I almost said to you if this comes out the hat choose again, because it's so similar to Frenzy.

Oh well.

I happened to record a video if you'd like to see my technique: https://youtu.be/OAg9Vh6vnlg
That's exactly how I play :)

Not being able to restart from the start after you die is just dumb. :/

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R5 - Perplexity

This is a beautiful game and I love puzzle solving games like this but I just haven't got the time to play it at the moment, sorry!!

I will remember it and one day work my way through all the levels though. It's totally my sort of game :)

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R5 - Perplexity

This is insanely hard, and pretty unforgiving as there's no "undo" move. But I guess once you've learned the levels.......

I got to level 2...

Re: High Score Challenge - Centipede by Tricky

I confess, the annoying centipede segment deaths are a bug, but at least the spider is better now. I will try and work out why it is happening and fix it. Oh I thought that was by design.. I quickly learned NOT to try and shoot them if I was one space to the left of a mushroom on the level above......

Re: High Score Challenge - Centipede by Tricky

The game never ends, but I did make the spawning of the extra segments speed up, I'll have to check whether it speeds up per level or per spawned segment. Completing levels should be the best way to score points, but does have the drawback of more rouge heads, up to 7, then they go back to 0.The sc...

Re: High Score Challenge - Centipede by Tricky

Are you guys trying to complete levels by completely killing the centipedes?

Is there any benefit to doing that? Does the game ever end?

Re: High Score Challenge - Centipede by Tricky

45961... Not sure this counts as point-whoring though. What happened was the bits of the centipede were trapped in a loop down the left-hand bottom corner, and I knew that if I hung around near the right-hand side, the spider would keep appearing on that side, so I just had to keep picking it off.

4900.
The third time around the colours are back to as they were the first time around. It doesn't appear to be any harder.

Just eventually my concentration went and I lost 5 lives cheaply in the same place.

Really really painful game to play!! :oops:
