yep, this game is soooo hard!
True but, you chose it and..... it's also a bit of an unfair game due to it's randomness.

It's kind of cool playing some of these old games and finding out their foibles.

Finally got the extra life but didn't manage to do much with it. Ended up with 11920.
That extra 2.5k you got is that extra life so you did about what usually happens.

Took about a dozen games before I even got to the second level.
What took you so long. It took me at least 50 or 60 games to get to the 2nd level, maybe even more.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

My analysis of this game is it's mostly random in it's challenges. In theory, a good platformer should be somewhat predictable once you master the keys. Point in case, Yoyo was insanely difficult but very predictable once you had a plan. You could 'count' on it to not change unless you did somethin...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

Well, never thought I would get over 10k, still on level 2, just can't quite get there. I know where I have to jump to but opportunities just seem so few to actually do it and when i do, something annoying gets in the way or the jump fails. Either way, this is the only time I'll ever play this game....

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R7 - Yoyo

A final score (well after deadline and not counting in the competition) showing that over 40k is possible and a 30% completion rate. I think it would be very hard indeed to do very much better unless you had endless hours to spend figuring every screen out in this one and even then you'd have to hav...

High Score Tables Updated for the 7th Round...... A few people did really well with this one. There were a few who got into a flow (which does take a long time with this quite difficult platformer) and the rest were mostly there. There was a clear winner in this one too, as lately there seems to be...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R7 - Yoyo

I only have them in the stitched together form I think. I'll have to go back into the original map and pick them out and enlarge them from there. I just tried it and when I re-enlarge them they become pixelised and blurry. You'll just have to make do with that. If you play on an emulator, you can d...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R7 - Yoyo

You will definitely have to play again Venger because this score was made with at least 5 critical but careless mistakes. I know where I can pick up at least another 2000 points fairly easily, considered I've played some of those levels, though hard are doable.

Got a better score because I resolved another screen that I had been 'timid' about. I didn't get quite as far but I know how to, just have to be less careless.
