I still have the VHS. I always tell people it's a much better movie than it's given credit for (people are too quick to crap on it); however, it's also not a timeless masterpiece, either. It's fine if people enjoy it for what it really is: a movie you can enjoy that isn't a must-see.
I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today. Actually, screw that. You're buying!
Played Rad Racer II alot as a kid, but not the original Rad Racer. Practiced it a lot a few days ago; I'm surprised at how much braking is necessary in the first game.
You actually had 4,530 points, not 4,350.
JES takes the crown. DILLY DILLY!
Just finished a 1-life run moments ago. Beat the game and finished with 732,800 points. I didn't slow down to mess with the turtles at all (mostly shot them with fireflowers) and I just tried to beat most of the levels as quickly as I could while getting as many coins as I could. Sadly, there were too many levels where I failed to get the fireworks with the flagpole; mistiming those jumps costs you so many points, especially when you know you screwed up and you're forced to hit the lower parts just to get the correct timing.
Impressive! Do you sometimes find you second-guessing yourself and wondering if slowing things down was a waste of time and not worth it?
I immediately thought of Space Panic when I saw the graphics, but this game plays differently from it.
I still say the "vacuum cleaners" that the cats ride in those light-night infomercials are really Jaguars with engines/motors in them.
Sounds like the title that would be given to Vinnie's beluga.
Loved rushing for 4,000 yards in a season with Marino in this game. It's a shame that rushing for 300 yards in a game with him doesn't leave enough time to score 63 points. Damn clocks and their speed!
Are you sure you set auto-fire to ON? I never saw it toggle to ON at all; I saw it say OFF on your settings screen.
We need to do these over again and possibly either delete the category or have the category edited by the admin. You see, the times we have on each "lap" in this game are not indeed a lap time, but the TOTAL time of the race up to that point. For example, it didn't really take you 1 minute and 38 seconds to go from the finish of lap 1 to the finish of lap 2; it took you 1 minute and 38 seconds from the start of the race to reach the finish of lap 2; therefore, it's quite posible that lap 1 is not always technically your fastest lap.I'd like to see this category edited to say "fastest finish" or "fastest 1st lap" and then players such as you and I can resubmit scores then.
Please tell me this is better than the NES game. The NES game was most heinous!
Those dictionaries can't always be trusted. I once looked up souffle and it said the French word for souffle is souffle!Note: I know souffle is a French word; I was just pretending to be as obtuse as you probably think most Americans are.
I managed to get the best ending sometimes, but it's such a pain in the ass. You need a lot of luck on your side, and the mini-game where you're running with Larry and the radio while Curly is boxing is torture sometimes.
Nice score! Not far off from your old one.
Going to give you a YES vote here. I had to right-click on the image and open the image in a new tab to be able to see the score on your TV screen. I advise that you show video of your gameplay in the future on scores that smash #1 scores, however.The fact that I see your 7800 hooked up to an old-fashioned TV and no other devices near it rules out the possibility of save states and emulators, so you have my vote. If possible, upload video for #1 scores in the future to make it easier for us all to vote yes.
This was a more fun game than I anticipated it would be. Due to online comments I've seen others make over the years, I was under the impression this game would be horrible. It's actually not bad. No idea what GDV is, though.
You know what's weird? Even though these pictures are sideways, when I righ-click on them and choose "open image in new tab", it show the images in the correct orientation in the other tab (I didn't even have to rotate them).
"You ain't fast enough for me." - Mr. Bolt -
Here's my impression of Alan...
Get whatever help you need to pull yourself out of such a dark place. Glad you're doing better!
As for Alan's time, I don't have the patience to sit there for 55 minutes and then cross the finish line.
Yeah, I learned the proper way to get more distance in the air and the proper way to land when I watched your video. For the most part, I can do it; however, the timing has to be so precise and you have to be perfect for the entire race. I haven't quite mastered it like you have; I seem to have some landings that just slow me down a tad and that's all it takes to miss your time. Your runs are most impressive.
Never had one of these. Are all your games on a floppy? Would this and the games be difficult to find nowadays?
I had 59.12 on my first run on track 1 (I crashed once). When I tried track 1 again, I got 56.38 the next time (no crashes). Your times on these tracks are impressive, Omar! I haven't been able to sniff them. Been practicing all week and this is the best I can do on track 1.
Also, his #1 score for Bubble Bobble in the hardware category should have been removed, as well. Player 2 has 9,000 points. He claims he had player 2 activated so he can get the good ending; that is completely unnecessary because good ending or bad ending, you still get a million points either way for popping the final boss's bubble! He also activated player 2 before finishing off the final boss, as evidenced by the fact that player 2 has 9,000 points.Furthermore, he admitted his hardware score wasn't played on an actual NES (check S.BAZ's score and read the comments there). He played on the Wii with an emulator (probably even used save states, too). He can easily remove his own hardware score by submitting a new one; however, he never bothered to do so. We know he has an NES to play hardware on, because his video for Balloon Fight - which was only about 20 seconds long or so - showed an NES powered on. It's possible he cheated with his Wii/emulator in Balloon Fight as well, as his Balloon Fight video never shows the game being played. It's possible he had the Wii - which was off-camera in that video - powered on at the same time and loading a save state to show that high score on the TV (while the NES was probably powered on a different input and not being shown on the TV screen).Bottom line: he's not trustworthy at all. When I called him out in the past, he was unapologetic and flippant about the fact that he was caught. I even told him long ago he could remove the Bubble Bobble hardware score by submitting a new one (which he CAN do as he has an NES). After all this time, he still hasn't done so. Kudos to you for doing the right thing in voting NO on his scores.
Don't forget this, either.
Thanks, Steele. You should see the videos I put up on Skill 3. Took hours to get that score. I've even had sessions where I had close to 3 million points - sometimes over it - and made the game crash.Follow the link below and you'll see my Skill 3 score with videos included.
I had over 70k at a game over on level 16; I'm impressed that you had over 95k at the start of level 14!
Those, and dropping between the retracting lava walls that close in on you (the timing of a fast descent has to be so precise!).
I recently got over 70k (failed at level 16) on this and another guy at AtariAge got 130k (he failed at level 19). This game seems to be much harder once you reach levels 13 and 14.
Alan's Tiny Toon submission for the Megadrive Emulated has been removed, I see. It was there hours ago with no pictures and no video whatsoever. Keep calling everybody stupid, Alan; you're only making a bigger ass of yourself than everybody already knows you are.
Alan should be banned, frankly. Between his pathetic attitude and the anger he directs at other players, the scores with weak evidence (and gloating while he's at it), and scores with NO evidence (such as his Tiny Toons score with no video and no pictures)... there's no reason for him to be here. Pathetic.
There's quite a handful of scores I've asked the same question about.
Dishonor on your house! Dishonor on your cow!
Impressive time! I tried to see if I could come close to this time a moment ago. I did not crash at all, and my best for this track was 1 minute and 6.57 seconds.
Funny. I didn't even notice the guitar until you mentioned it!
So this even-better time is why you removed the other one.
I finally shaved the time down to 56.56 seconds; the margin for error in getting your time is incredibly small. Quite impressive!
An impressive time. The best I've been able to do on track 1 thus far is 56.94 seconds.
The only one showing a bad attitude lately in the comments is you, Alan. Omar's a hell of a lot more trustworthy than you are. Despite already having a reputation as a trusted and good player here, he still posts good evidence. Alan, your weak evidence and bad attitude are not going to fly until you've first established that you indeed can play (and that trust gets established first with good evidence).
Hey! That's my nickname!
I can vouch for Ed that this is indeed Skill 4. It is obvious not only by the speed and difficulty of the game in the video, but also the fact that there are 8 hall monsters outside the rooms.
Skill 1: 5 monstersSkill 2: 6 monstersSkill 3: 7 monstersSkill 4: 8 monsters
*Laughs like Bender*
Actually, you'll still be in the top 10; the only score getting knocked off is my old score that was already in the top 10. That one will be erased when this one passes.
Dishonor on your house! Dishonor on your cow!
Just bumped you from 83.3 to 84.6%Still have a lot of voting to do as I haven't voted much in the past week or two; however, I'll catch up later. Back to bed.
*Dillon broke your record*DILLON! YOU SON OF A BITCH!
Wrong game. This is Mappy-Land, not Mappy.
First vote! Vote here! With a vote-vote here, a vote-vote there, here a vote, there a vote, everywhere a vote-vote!
Or some other category. If you show us a picture of what you played on (Pac-Man plugin or Jakks-Pacific plugin or a MAME emulator on a computer or something...) then we can help you identify which category your score should be submitted under.
Nice score! It looks like you did not play this on the actual arcade machine, though; therefore, it should be submitted in the Arcade/M.A.M.E. Emulated category.
Just bumped it up to 60% for you right now.
Don't know what time you posted this, but I see it is the latest score in the Latest Scores list and it's at 50% before I even vote for it, so the troll is obviously up late tonight.
I already did. These points are in American, not Canadian.
And many of them are the same person.
Bumped it from 0 to 50% for you.
I proved who some of them were a long time ago (from Norway). I even proved what a liar one of them was when he said that he and his three "friends" voted YES on a score for GTibel back in the day (a mathematical impossibility, as I was the only YES vote GTibel had at the time and GTibel didn't even have four TOTAL votes at the time).No idea if that moron is the one doing it right now on our scores with the "don't trust user" reason, but I already proved he did it in the past and proved what a LIAR he is. He still continues to lie to this day.
The NES port of Rampage is the only one I've ever played, so I've never had the chance to play as that other creature (a wolf?).
I agree, although we already know who some of them are.
I see the first vote is a NO; gave it a YES to bump it up to 50% for you.
Always loved this game on the Colecovision. This is the first time I ever played the arcade version of Carnival. Felt like I could have done better, but wasted too many shots.
Tried the arcade version for the first time ever. It's brutally hard for me (for the wrong reasons). I can't aim diagonally or sideways or downward; I can only aim straight up! Took me a few minues to ind out that 5 inserts the coin and that CTRL and ALT are the two fire keys (doesn't work on the Wii's MAME emulator, so I tried it on the computer).
Voted YES. Never was a fan of this game as I feel it's too unforgiving. I fired it up a few minutes ago and managed to beat level 1 with over 20,000 points, but it was a pain in the ass to do. I think it's B.S. that you can get killed as soon as you come out of the revolving doors where you rescue the hostages and aren't even given an opportunity to move or shoot (but a bad guy walks into you and you're dead).
Never played Ikari Warriors before. I'll have to give that one a try sometime.
One of my favorite games ever, and definitely my favorite SNK game. Ran into the damn helicopter at this part and was caught in no man's land.
You're the best around. Nothing's ever gonna bring you down! Except that gigantic wave from the Tsunami.
I do the same thing you did on the bonus stages; I duck under the high ones and just break the rest. It IS possible to break the high ones by kicking, but whether or not your guy does the high kick seems very random and unpredictable.
Didn't take you long.
Never knew this game existed. I think the graphics look nice. My brain is running around in circles about the graphics/action, though. I keep thinking, "How can something look so cool yet so stupid and yet so cool at the same time?"
Way harder than the Atari 2600 and Colecovision ports, in my opinion.
Just noticed you're only 3,070 points behind SeaBass in this game! Depending on how the scoring is done in this game, that could be just a few rock kills away or a fruit or several fruits away from passing him. Nice attempt!
You're on quite the MSX kick lately.
Thanks. I know a guy who reaced level 50 on the MSX version of the game; I'm curious to see if he can do just as well on the Colecovision version (wouldn't be surprised).
I don't always have the 3DS out to take pictures when I'm playing, but my top score was 71,236 points (red area with trees and water on the sides of the screen) one night. Best run I ever had, but I usually struggle with stage 2. Finished stage 1 moments ago with 12,674 points.Stage 3 is my favorite; I just wish I would reach it more often.
Game Over screen appears awfully fast, so I had to start a game again and take a picture of the HI SCORE 22465.Not an impressive score at all; in fact, I've done much better on some days but scores like this are the norm for me in this game. I'm not very good at this game and stage 2 is surprisingly the hardest level for me in this game (3 and 4 are much easier for me the few times I'm lucky enough to get past stage 2).
Recently achieved this score for Season 10, Round 11 of the Colecovision High Score Club at AtariAge. Had my butt handed to me by Tao on stage 12.
This should be in the Emulated category.
Skipping for now. You posted a score here instead of a win streak.
I'll be impressed when you master the Kessel Run.
Had no problems dodging bullets during the game; lost all of my lives by running out of room to navigate on this level. Fun game!
Lost all of my lives in the pictured level. Once you lose a life and lose the power-ups, you're pretty much screwed. After losing my final life, it quickly went to the black Game Over screen; I had to choose continue and pause the game to bring it to this screen so you can say the high score (HI 125300).
Nice score, Omar!
Not sure if this pic will show up or not, but I'll give it a try. I found out that it IS possible to farm points in this game. This user's evidence would be better if it actually showed the GAME OVER screen so we knew what level he was on. There's three screens to each round (first screen is maze; second screen is Bible; third screen is bonus boxes).I had 158k and had a game over on round 7. Tonight, I decided to play the game again and see if it's possible to farm points. When I found out it was possible, here's the score achieved: 208k and still not out of lives yet while only on the second screen of ROUND FOUR!
Well, I was wrong. It IS possible to farm points in this game. You can farm points on the second part of each stage where you collect the Bibles. If you choose not to put the bible in the center box, you can just keep it and keep shooting the enemies and farming the points from them.
The beauty of this game is that it displays what speed setting you're playing on.
YES here. As far as I know, point-farming is as impossible in this game as it is in Pac-Man. Some tips for the future: try to have a pic of the GAME OVER screen so we can see what level your game ended on; show the website URL in the future so if any of us wanted to check it out for ourselves, we can. If possible, provide video (I did not submit video for this game, but most of my submissions have them). Video is not always necessary, but it eases voters' concerns for scores good enough to be #1.I don't like the fact that there's a cheats button on that page, but it looks like it's not highlighted with any colors at all. It's a good and believable score.
I voted YES, but I just noticed that you posted this in the hardware category instead of emulation.
I wouldn't think it's the end of the game, as the score has enough digits for you to get a much higher score. Probably just an issue with the emulator. For example: my Colecovision emulator seems to always have problems with the game Girl's Garden. That game freezes at random times when I play it, but others have had no issues with it on the hardware.
Odd. Maybe it was so close that the game thought it landed at the bottom for a game over, even though you killed it.
Same here. 90% of the time, I prefer the Coleco port of a game (BurgerTime, Q*Bert, etc.), but NES gets my vote on Popeye. I've always preferred Popeye and Donkey Kong Jr. over Donkey Kong.
Voglio mangiare il pollo per la prima colazione!
Er, it should have read 1-4-7 in my first screens, not 1-2-3; the points are correct, however.
When observin the totals of the first 8 stages for the both of us, I noticed a pattern. You're quite better than me on the first screen each time; the third screen (vulture screen) is my bread and butter. Below is how many points we scored on those specific screens...Your 1st screens 12,330 12,780 18,330 (WOW)My 1st screens 10,480 10,850 11,090Your 2nd screens 6,850 7,050 5,150My 2nd screens 6,350 8,200 15,300Your 3rd screens 15,350 12,750 did not reachMy 3rd screens 22,450 18,450 35,250Obviously, I need to improve on the 1st screen and you need to improve on the 3rd screen for us to hit our potentials.
Since you lasted 8 levels in this video, I decided to compare how we fared on the first 8 levels. Here are the results.1st level totalsYou: 12,330Me: 10,4802nd level totalsYou: 19,180Me: 16,8303rd level totalsYou: 34,530Me: 39,2804th level totalsYou: 47,310Me: 50,1305th level totalsYou: 54,360Me: 58,3306th level totalsYou: 67,110Me: 76,7807th level totalsYou: 85,440Me: 87,8708th level totalsYou: 90,590Me: 103,170
Impressive improvement. On the level where you lost your last life, you cost yourself a 3,000-point bonus by waiting too long to hit Bluto with the Spinach. The music wore off before he hit the water, so no bonus.
We used to dominate quarterbakcing in football. Now... we dominate video games. Tomorrow... THE WORLD!
Terrible run this time. I normally get close to 50k; I screwed up after grabbing the hammer and failing to turn around in time.
Voted first before the trolls get their votes in. :)
Like the Donkey Kong Lego!
lmao. Reminds me of when they censored out the Swastikas in Bionic Commando and changed the Nazis' names to the BADD federation. I guess killing Nazis was too controversial for us Americans at the time?
Never saw this before. Is this a Contra hack?
Hey. Stop it. I'm tired of playing this!
First YES vote! Where's my cookie!?
Try double-tapping the d-pad when you climb; if you do it right, you'll climb up and down much faster.
Maybe, maybe not. You're quite good at the Donkey Kong games (I feel I'm better at the DK Jr. games than the DK games). The pie stage gets difficult on the later stages because you think the coast is clear to climb to the top, then WHAM! I will give it a try.
Bumped it up to 90% for you. The trolls are getting ridiculous. Nice score!
One of my favorites on the Colecovision!
Nananananananana, nananananananana, LEADER! I mean... BATMAN!
UGH. That sounds terrible (like Bubble Bobble on the Gameboy, except Bubble Bobble shows even less).
Wow. Arcade version is absolutely brutal. This is not like the NES or Colecovision ports at all.
Never knew this game existed for the Gameboy Color; makes me wish I still had my Gameboy Color.
Those of us in the Colecovision High Score Club at AtariAge are currently playing this game - among three others - in the current round.
I'll watch them and check them out, but I doubt I'll beat your score (if I do, it won't be so easily). The Figurits Revenge level always causes me to lose a few lives. If I can breeze through that level so easily, maybe I'll have a chance. Memorization is key on that one.
So many votes for ZX scores tonight... you and Frankie are beginning to make me think this is the only platform to exist in the world!
Remember: unlike the Colecovision port, the Spinach respawns in this one when you lose a life. if you lose a life without eating the spinach first, then that's a life wasted.
Speed 3 is displayed in the bottom center of the screen (SP 3).
Looks like you use the same emulator I use. Wii2600?
You should resubmit and give yourself the better score you actually achieved. You cut yourself short by 30 points on this submission. You actually had 28,330 points, not 28,300 points.
Never played this game, but I love the art on the cartridge label!
The Colecovision port is the only one I've ever played for Oil's Well, but I've always loved the game. You can't possibly go wrong with this game on any format! If there is a crappy version of it, heaven help whoever made it.
I'm not too fond of the Atari 7800 version. It's not bad... but it's not my favorite either; the sound is HORRIBLE for it, though.NES version is also my favorite for DK. I love the Colecovision port, as well. In regards to DK Jr., I love both the NES and Colecovision ports, but my favorite is the Colecovision port.Friendly advice: don't play DK Jr. on the Atari 2600. It SUCKS.
Insane run. Gave up after a few tries today and decided to stick with Standard for now. Might be a long time before I top this one (if ever).
I remember the cartoon but never knew they made a video game based on him. Wow!
Bouncing jack is always a pain in the ass. It doesn't always have the same landing spot. Took me a handful of attempts to get this score today. Steele, your scores on the higher difficulties are insane!
Very interesting. Always loved symbolism and how open to interpretation it can be. I was a tad confused to see He-Man's armor fitting so well and thought to myself, "That figure can't be He-Man. He-Man would never do yoga, meditation or pilates." lol
The Legend of Zelda red candle, Pac-Man's head, what appears to be He-Man's armor... who's the body?
Always loved the Colecovision port. No bouncing jacks!
Nice score. Way harder than the Colecovision port.
Now this looks like the Colecovision graphics I'm accustomed to!
Wow. Talk about crude graphics. Pauline looks like E.T. dressed up as Santa Claus.
I can vouch for what Larcen said. When I tried some Gameboy games on a Gameboy Advance emulator, I was surprised to see the old Gameboy games suddenly having a bit of color.
I saw one of these and a Pac-Man one at a Toys 'R Us a few months ago. Didn't buy them, though. I didn't like their prices for what looked like Tiger Electronics type graphics.
Just realized the Jaguar looks like those robotic vacuum cleaners that scare the cats.
Been a while since I've seen you here. Welcome back. Always loved the box art of the Atari game boxes you included in your pics for Atari submissions!
Pies slide very fast on the conveyor belts once you reach level 4. Picture taken with 3DS, due to no working webcam at this time. That's why I haven't submitted scores for a while and will be keeping submissions to a minimum until I get around to replacing the webcam.
You two are making me want to play this again.
I know the pain all too well.
Good score, Omar. Ignore the whiner.
I'm fine with you killing Pete multiple times. I voted YES for your score. I'm going to do the same thing myself. If it's fair when Bubu does it, then it's fair when we do it.
I thought it was obvious that he's TheDarkBanshee because he makes the same spelling errors in the same exact manner. He also has the same tone and sentence structure in his posts. He's a waste of everybody's time.
I hate how unresponsive the controls are for the arcade version of Donkey Kong Jr. It's so slow and clunky; there's no agility whatsoever. NES and Colecovision ports were much better for control and agility.
Nope. Your video evidence is still shit because you planted the seed of doubt by posting and claiming that you posted a fake score. Nobody can trust you. But for the record, the record holder should have never had 100% YES votes; I sure as hell cannot be blamed for it because I wasn't even a member back then.
Real or not, you said it yourself that you posted a fake score. The fact that anybody would deliberately try to cause panic, anarchy and confusion on this site makes their scores worthy of a NO vote. The purpose of this site is for people to submit their scores and vote on scores; trying to lie or cause confusion goes against the intended spirit of the site and is unwelcome here. So it really doesn't matter if your score is real or not; besides, the evidence isn't good enough anyway.
There's no need for me to debunk it. The fact that you even waste time here at all posting fake scores is more than enough reason to never vote YES for you. Simply put: you can't be trusted.
Is this picture indeed KaBoom and not the game where they drop the flower pots?
No, Ichigo. The fact that you clearly aren't paying attention makes you a perfect example of what Boot was talking about in the forums.
Boot, I saw the comment you left on my profile, but if you want to communicate with me, it's best to do so via comments in the forums or comments on scores such as this one. Profiles are basically THE most difficult thing to load on this site due to the errors.Even if I hand't read your post in the forums, I still would have voted NO on this score due to the fact that I've never seen submissions by you; therefore, you have no reputation in my eyes for me to trust you yet. Furthermore, you don't even show the hardware for your score despite posting in the hardware category. Last, but not least, you completely TRASHED the high score and show no video whatsoever. All those reasons alone are enough to vote NO on this score.As for spotting how the score is fake: I can honestly say I don't know how it is because I'm not an Atari 2600 expert. For consoles and games that I'm not very knowledgeable about, I vote YES or NO based on common sense and whether or not the evidence is good enough. In other words, you were still getting a NO from me.I don't like the little test/game you're trying to play here because all you're doing is submitting bullshit and thus creating more distrust and more anarchy on the site. So yes, of course you get bitched at by me.
Nintendo of America was always strange and hypocritical in their explanations. They never wanted it to be explicitly known that you KILL things in the game (such as the goombas when you jump on their heads in Super Mario Bros.) and didn't like the word KILL, yet it's obvious you're killing enemies in games such as Bionic Commando (especially when Hitler's head blew up). I guess they figure you were setting your bazookas to stun.Thankfully, they made an oversight and we were still able to nuke the hamster in the microwave in Maniac Mansion.
You don't belong here with your bullshit little games. GET OFF THE SITE.Everybody: Vote NO on this score. Boot Error posted in the discussions that he posted fake scores as a little test.
Challengers? You mean Challenger!
Impressive! It was lonely being in the 200k club.
If I get my hands on it, I'll have to give it a try sometime.
Now you know how I felt when I had to do 5 parts of video in BurgerTime for the Colecovision!
NES Emulator (FCE Ultra GX)
It's an NES ROM of the arcade game. There are NES ROMs of Playchoice10 games and VS Games.
Excellent score. The true #1 in the hardware category, as far as I'm concerned.
Should've had well over 200k, but I screwed up on the Super Bonus Stage and cost myself the 30k bonus that goes with it.
Thanks! I have an even better score that I've been waiting to upload a while, but I haven't submitted it yet because I'm still waiting for the final 3 votes on this one. The MAME scores take way too long to get 25 votes.
And thanks for the vote. I love the Q*Bert games. Always have. It's my opinion that Q*Bert and Popeye are some of the greatest - and most overlooked - games ever.
Colecovision port is still the best version of Q*Bert ever among the consoles.
Once I realized Lester was trapped and going nowhere, I paused the game to get the camera out and begin filming. HILARITY! The Downhill Jam event appears to stop accepting points once the race's timer reaches 2:45 on the game's clock.
I didn't kill him many times because I think it's a shoddy and cheap way to play. I have no desire to do something so pathetic as cheating in a video game.
Your score's already up for voting? It's not my fault my two videos take longer to upload than your one video.
Stop making me play Skate or Die!
I heard that Napoleon wasn't the short man everybody likes to portray him as, but that he was a man of actual average height. If I'm not mistaken, the French used to have an old system where 14 inches was a foot, which was why future generations mistakenly thought Napoleon was short.
7 feet and 3 inches is 87 inches.
You can watch the final minute of the video to see the High Scores show up. The scores highlighted in yellow were the scores I achieved during the "Compete All" phase at the end of the video. As you can see, the 7,133 points I scored in the Downhill Race were during the Compete All phase at the end of the video (likewise for the Ramp Highjump).The Downhill Jam and Ramp Freestyle top scores were achieved at some point earlier in the video. Feel free to watch the video if you want to see the exact moments those were achieved, but the High Scores log at the end of the video should suffice.
To see the blue screen where it says overall score of 25, watch the final minute of the video. You will see me defeating Lester in the Pool Joust (the final event of Compete All) and then that screen comes up.The scores highlighted in yellow were the scores achieved during the Compete All phase.
Yours, too. I have no doubt we're going to keep raising the bar on this one.
I had over a million points the other night when I wasn't filming, so I was disappointed to fail to reach the million during this filming session. By the way, the score indeed rolls over to zeroes once you hit a million points.
Arigato! I could have done much better if I didn't screw up a few times on the hammer swing mini-game. Did perfect a handful of times (5,000 bonus points each), but had several bad attempts for fewer or no points.
Successful run begins moments after the 16:25 mark.
Oh, successful run begins at 6:48
Wow. This is way harder than the NES version, in my opinion.
YES vote for you to bump it up to 85.7. Good luck!
I was just thinking that games like this and Tony Hawk Pro Skater would probablymake awesome VR experiences.
Yeah. Energizer battery pak. Had to recharge them afterward.
Put the cookie down... NOW! AND GET BACK TO THE CHOPPAH!
I'll be back... with an even better run next time. Vote for me if you want to live!
I see you have the same problems I have with level 35. Level 35 in non-NES versions is a bitch...
I should have never told you the secret to making level 42 slightly less difficult.
It's good to be the king! - Mel Brooks -
Level 42 was a piece of cake for me.
Thanks for the kind words, but I wouldn't go that far. I'm darn good at the NES port, but there are better players than me on the Arcade/MAME port. I also doubt I'm the only one who can get a million points on the Sega Master System port.
Should have beaten Kernzy's score, but I put myself in a tight spot at the end; even worse, the controller died at the end and made it impossible for me to wiggle my way out of there. Will give it another go some other time.
Due to Movie Maker's 1-hour filming limit, I had to film in two parts. The keys to getting the best possible ending are finding the 2 lost treasures and getting the bonus stages with Gyro.
I'm surprised by the NO votes on this. For those who are concerned that he might have played on 2-player B mode and farmed points and lives by killing player 2... I don't think so. Had he done that, he would've had close to 120,000 points instead of just 90,000 for beating the game.
Use whatever team you want. Just use the game's default settings.10-minute periodsNo line changesNo penaltiesNo offsidesFeel free to edit your starting lineup, however.
Awesome score. Kudos on not farming fake Shredders or motorcycle foot soldiers.
The only ways you can have 781 points without beating Krang are as follows:
First YES vote. Great score! Not far behind my current score in waiting.
I'm good at the first two Contra games but horrible at this one. Nice score!
Thanks! I'm still annoyed that I didn't top the 219k. I should have, but I stupidly jumped into that 2nd barrel at the end. If I don't hit that barrel, I think I easily top it (figure 2-3k for hitting barrels with the next hammer plus whatever time is remaining if I beat the level).When I had 219k, I lost my first life at 126k; you'd think losing your first life at 187k would result in topping your own score.
First life is lost at the 28:43 mark in the video.This was EASILY the best 1-life run I have ever had in Donkey Kong; which makes it all the more disappointing that I failed to crack my top score of over 219k. Nevertheless, my old 1-life score of 126k was easily crushed with this 187,700-point performance.
I'll gladly give this a YES vote if you submit it to the Supreme Master - or as this site incorrecty lists it, Supreme Warrior - difficulty. It's a damn good score, Pierpy. Also, I can say with confidence that I don't think Pierpy farmed points by turning two players on and killing player 2 at all. If he did, he would've had close to 120,000 points instead of 90,000.
My sincerest apologies for not having the entire gameplay on video. I made it through the first six levels without losing a life, then paused the game at the Trap Room level to look at the timer. Even though I pressed the red record button in Windows Movie Maker, it apparently wasn't recording yet! Ugh.It was a good thing I paused the game to check Movie Maker's timer; otherwise, I would have never realized it wasn't recording. At that point, I clicked record again and made doubly sure it was recording from that point forward.The fact that I beat the game is proof that this was played on Supreme Master difficulty (although High Score incorrectly lists it as Supreme Warrior). The final boss of this game is ONLY available on the Supreme Master difficulty.
And that score should be removed, too.
Voting NO on this one. The enemy you fight in your picture is not avaiable on the default setting (Warrior). You obviously played the game on Supreme Master difficulty.
Also, Gretzky led the way with 11 goals and 8 assists.
I had the default settings (10-minute periods, no line changes, no penalties, no offsides). I did, however, edit my line. I went with Blake-Sydor on defense and Granato-Gretzky-Robitaille on offense.
Pathetic. Only won 23-1 and should have done much better than this. Comical how Wayne Gretzky with a 99 stickhandling rating bobbles passes the whole game (goold ol' typical EA Sports).The 23-1 victory gives me a margin of 22. I included the CPU goalie stats so you can see that all 23 goals were indeed scored against a goalie.
This was actually pathetic. Should have done much better than this. I included the goalie stats so you can see the CPU goalie allowed all 23 goals I scored against him. The 23-1 victory gives me a margin of 22.
You didn't get the 72 in the shot, but I know the Spurs had 72 because I added up the points from the players' stats in the picture. I'll give you a YES vote for now, but you really should show video in the future as evidence that you played the specific settings.
Very fun game! It's also the kind of game that makes you feel like you'll get carpal tunnel via the d-pad.
I got the secret room on level 20 this time!
Way harder than the NES version. It's harder to bounce off of multiple bubbles as you shoot them in mid-air in this game, and it seems like it's impossible to shoot bubbles and jump off of them if you're trapped in a tiny box. I missed the secret room on level 20, as well. I think I did well for somebody who is new to the MAME version of the game.
Just tried Game A and Game B moments ago to spot the differences. The timers are the same on the same levels in both versions; however, the speeds are different. The elevators start moving fast on the jacks level at 4-2 on Game A; in Game B, it moves at that speed once you reach level 3-2. So Game B is basically a level 2 start.
Thanks for the vote. If I remember correctly, Level 1 on Game B is the equivalent of Level 2 on Game A (I could be mistaken). Remember how fast the elevators move on Level 4 of Game A on the bouncing jacks stage? If memory serves me correctly, it moves that quickly on level 3 of Game B.
Jump button didn't work at the end. Perhaps I mistimed it when I was walking the ledge.
As you can see at the end of the video, my controller died and I could no longer play. Had no choice but to just let it run its course and end the game.
This port is one of the worst video games I have ever played in my life. It sucks.
Congrats, rasta mon!'nuff people say you know them think it's kinda lameJES set a high score for another game
My problem with the Colecovision port is that there is no indication as to your positioning when you make your jumps. Jumping on the fishes is the worst part, especially when you're jumping from one row of fish to the next row of fish. There is nothing to indicate whether you miss the head or tail sideways by mere pixels or if you're going to overshoot your jump when you're perfectly centered.Zaxxon did a wonderful job of giving you a sense of position. Imagine playing Zaxxon and having no clue where you really are; that is what Congo Bongo feels like to me on the hippo/fish stage.
I was practicing this game for the Colecovision last night, and that port is HORRIBLE as well!
Well, this is a rarity... a TIE SCORE that isn't a maxed-out score.
Had a lot of bad luck on the last few levels.
Thank you for the compliment, Mangia! I was curious to see what the top score was in the Colecovision hardware category, so it was by chance that I came here and saw your comment. I appreciate it. You're not a slouch at Oil's Well yourself, either. You're a king in Lady Bug, though. I can't even get close to your scores in that game.
Successful run begins after the Game Over at the 9:35 mark.
Due to Windows Movie Maker's 1-hour time limit, I had to pause the emulator near the 1-hour mark and save part 1 of the video before I could resume filming.
Thanks. It's a shame we can't vote 25 times apiece on the scores. I still have scores from January 4th waiting for votes.
Should have scored a lot more points, but I stupidly fired the projectile at the end instead of ducking. The button response in this game is terrible.
The ghosts seem to be very random on hard difficulty... as if they were studying your own patterns.
Well, I learned the hard way that the screen disappears very quickly after the game over, so that ruled out getting a picture with my 3DS camera and my name tag. I had to play again and then use the print screen button to get a screenshot before it was too late.I wasn't sure if the large original-size image would upload successfully on this site or not, so I also included the half-sized image as well. If you view both images in new tabs or new windows, you will see that the bottom image if half the size of the top image.
First one to vote YES on this one. I struggle mightily with this game in MAME, despite the fact that I handle other games just fine. Guessing my Wii remote is a horrible fit for this game, as I have been informed it's a three-button game and I'm primarily using two buttons.Good score!
Successful run begins after the game over at the 5:14 mark. If not for those annoying crocs at the end, it's possible I might have gone on to score close to 40,000 points.
Impressive score, but I've come to take back the crown. Currently uploading the latest video to YouTube. In the meantime, you can wear it until I get the votes necessary.
Gut-punch him every time he charges, then hope he's down for the count.
FINALLY! Successful run begins shortly after the game over at the 16:42 mark.
I actually do much better on Skill 4 because the birds are so slow on Skill 2 and I don't have the patience for it.
I had it! I was about to beat Level 6-1 but the snake got to the final square just before I could!
The idiots voting NO apparently don't know how to read this...Rules: Play with default settings unless otherwise specified. No hacked ROMs. No passwords or cheat codes. Must be played on a Game Boy compatible handheld device, Super Game Boy SNES/Super Famicom attachment, or GameCube Game Boy Player attachment.
I was halfway through the 2nd stage before I figured out how to do the dropkicks.
Thanks. I hit the record button and thought it was being recorded, but Movie Maker apparently didn't record. Once I realized it, I took a snapshot when I had a game over. Just glad I didn't crush the high score (I wouldn't have submitted it then if it destroyed the previous high). Frankly, I thought this site's high score for this game would have been much higher.
First time I ever played any Atari Lynx game. The games seem slow to me.
I'm confident I can do much better than this. I missed out on several 3,000-point bonuses by being too slow once I got the spinach can. There's subtle differences that make this harder than the NES and Colecovision ports; it'll just take some practice for me.
First time I ever played this game. Looks interesting and fun.
Stupid mouse....Never mind. Much easier to see in full screen mode.
JES is right; the score is quite easy to see on the initials screen if you're viewing it in full screen mode. Same for my videos as well: much easier to see my ID tag and scores in full screen.
First YES vote about 20 minutes ago. Wanted to let you know the following: easy to see the score while you're putting in the initials, but more difficult to see it once the initials screen is gone (can somewhat make it out on the title screen, however).
De nada, amigo.
Skipping for now. It looks like you have the wrong game here. The title screen intro is different than the one Kernzy and Deteacher played. Theirs is Mr. Pac-Man while you're playing Ms. Pac-Man.
In my opinion, it's way harder than the Colecovision one. In fact, I'm often finding that the Atari 2600 ports are harder than the Colecovision ports of the same games.
Furthermore, when you load Q*Bert on the Colecovision, it immediately goes to the blue screen where you choose a skill level. It is a Parker Bros. game that bypasses the Colecovision BIOS screen, just like Popeye and Frogger! There was nothing omitted in the recording.
Thanks. Some idiot voted NO and said they wanted video of the entire gameplay and that a partial recording made them uncomfortable. THE ENTIRE GAMEPLAY IS IN THE VIDEO!
Once you get to level 6-1, planning/thinking is mostly thrown out the window and you're just reacting.
I believe there's a special place in hell for whoever did the controls for this game.
I had the same bullshit reason given on some of my recent submissions, as well.
Nice to see it's still at 100% after my YES vote.
Bumped it up from 72.7% to 75% for you. Keep including video!
First life lost at World 7-1 at the 35:35 mark in the video.
I was actually getting ready to play this in a few minutes.
That flies in the face of any logic on this site. There are people on this site who consider the PS2 slim to be PS2 emulated rather than PS2 hardware; in the same breath, this site would then consider the Xbox One to be Atari 2600? What a joke.
I definitely agree that this wasn't a masterpiece of a game, however. Having to press B so many times to cycle through the moves in a limited amount of time is not my idea of fun. It's not the worst, but it's not great, either. I'd call this game playable at best.
It's not as repetetive as you might think, though. Yes, it's the same tag team over and over again, but the CPU becomes increasingly - and annnoyingly - difficult in the later matches. When their wrestlers turn red, it's virtually impossible to strike them; in the later matches, they turn red almost every second of the match! The key is to try to get count-out wins because they never turn red outside the ring.
Just bumped it from 71.4% to 75% for you.
Suffered a double count-out loss in round 17, which means I won 16 rounds. Normally better than this, but sometimes the CPU just beats you to the punch.
The responsiveness of the controls for the NES version still sucks for this game, as always. Colecovision port of Q*Bert is still the best.
Indeed. Getting rid of Blatter doesn't solve the problem, either, as it takes many to carry out such corruption. Nice to see this machine's still around and being played, though! Sorry about the soccer posts here, Euph, but I hope you had fun playing it!
1994 World Cup still holds the record for attendance (at a time when soccer's popularity in America was slowly increasing and not at the level it's at now); it's absurd that they awarded the WC hosting to Qatar rather than the USA.
That'll happen, especially if you have an overly sensitive mousepad on a laptop like I do. You think you're moving an arrow and it somehow clicks.
I'm not a pinball player, so I wouldn't know. I imagine it would, as the art/graphics match that of the old TV show. The sounds of the old show would totally capture the spirit of it while playing.
Loved the old Batman show. You should top your score next time. Same bat time, same bat channel!
Surprised your score isn't much higher, considering how good you are at Galaga. Is the NES version harder than the arcade version?
Held the cursor over the G, but time ran out before I could get the camera out to take the picture and it wouldn't let me put the G in anymore.
Although I've beaten this game in the past, Machine Gun Willy has always been troublesome.
Thanks. It's hard to be consistent in this game. My best is 340,150 points (failed at level 20 and had a bunch of diamonds), but I didn't have that run on video. It's been difficult to repeat that great run! One run, I'll have over 200,000 points, and then another run, I'll have barely over 100,000. Scores are very hit-or-miss in this game.
Not my best, but it is the best I have on video.
Thanks. I felt I could have done better, as I usually have 1 or 2 stupid deaths. Much easier to rack up the points on skill 1 because you have five lives and margin for error; with only 3 lives, the margin for error is much thinner.Sometimes the stupid deaths are the result of me being too greedy for points and trying to be too fancy or too perfect. When things get complicated, just finish the dang level and save the lives.
After dealing with Robomanus, I'm sure Machine Gun Willy would be no problem for the Battletoads.
Love the SNES graphics but I feel the controls were tighter and more responsive on the NES.
First YES. Seeing a lot f Shoot-em-up games on High Score lately!
Funny thing about the TEST YOUR MIGHT game. On the Genesis itself, I never failed TEST YOUR MIGHT. On the emulators, I fail it all the time because my Wii remote is actually terrible for that.
Yeah, gazhally or something like that. A little competition can be a good thing!
What I mean was you came close to losing. Good recovery!
I'll phrase it several different ways to make it easier.You almost had a game over several times.You almost lost and ended the game several times.Several close calls!
You were awfully close to a GAME OVER a few times.
Bumped it from 80 to 83 for you. This bullshit is unacceptable.
The score rolls over when you hit a million points. The first million was hit a moment after 9:20 in the video; the second million was hit a moment after 16:52 in the video. Out of sheer boredom, I chose to lose the remaining lives and finished the game with 2,301,200 pts.
Agreed. Q*Bert and BurgerTime are two games that I think are better on the Colecovision than on other consoles.
Love the graphics. Looks way more menacing than the NES port.
Not a good score for me. Normally do much better than this.
If you make a site similar to this, it will need to have many things done differently, as this site has way too many flaws.
First YES for you.
I don't think the admin is done with the site, but I also don't think he's very active with it, either. It's obviously not a high priority to him.
So your score which was close to my record is at 85% and Omar's score which was close to my record is at 100%; however, my score that breaks my own record is at a lowly 40% despite the fact that there's a photo AND VIDEO. Like you said, this site gets tiresome anymore.
Topped my old record by a very narrow margin. Game over at the 5:02 mark and then the successful run begins.I was confused by the several crocodile deaths I had; I could have sworn I timed the attacks perfectly.
First yes vote for you. I'm amazed at how many developers were able to get away with making knock-offs of other games back in the day. But then again, if the knock-offs were made by the same developers as the original, I suppose that was okay.
First time I ever played the arcade version of Donkey Kong Junior. Good game! The movements felt clunky and less agile compared to the console versions of the game. Will take some getting used to.
This looks like the type of game that probably served as inspiration for the Simpsons Road Rage game Ichigo was playing.
You were at 80% and my YES vote bumped it up to 83% just now. Sounds like you only had one NO vote (so you're either 5/6 or 10/12 right now).
Good score. So close! This skill level is difficult and annoying.
Voting yes right now. Omar's score right here is still at 100% at the moment. Due to your comments, SeaBass, I'm interested in seeing what the percentages are by the time I reach yours. Sorry you're going through this crap.
I really don't care what you're sick of seeing. I don't see you bitching about Excitebike and other such games on here.
So I was right about it being a 4 after all. I know it's just 200 points, but it was 200 points you were entitled to and correctly submitted this time.
Uploaded this video to YouTube back in April at the old place. I finally put in a request for this game recently.In games that have no timers displayed on the screen, you need to define the start and end of a game for speed runs. In this video, I define the start at 30 seconds (when your character appears on screen) and the end at 10:57 (when Jason is struck with the final blow). That puts this speed run at 10 minutes and 27 seconds.
Yes. The Colecovision was my first console and it is still my favorite to this day (along with the NES). A cousin of mine had Atari 2600 and I occassionally played it when I slept over at her house during the summer as a kid; likewise, she played the Colecovision when staying at my house.I actually didn't mind the Colecovision controllers; I loved them and did well with them. They are less than ideal for some games, however.
Meanwhile, I'm skipping until you can clarify with a reply what the final 3 digits are. If I'm right, then you can just resubmit with the higher digits and I'll vote for that.
You might have sold yourself short here. Aren't the last 3 digits 490 rather than 290? Looks like 490 to me but I'm not positive. I hate how difficult some fonts are to read in some of these games.
You should remove this and resubmit it with the correct score. The score in the picture is 2,200. NOT 2,220.
Nevertheless, be pleased with your effort and the fact that it's a marked improvement over your previous submission. Always compete with yourself. You can do even better eventuallybecause your decision-making in the game will become second nature.
Congratulations! This isn't one of my best Colecovision games; nevertheless, it's not often that somebody tops my score in Colecovision.
In addition to showing a 16-second clip, you see that his score is over 500k on LEVEL 3. If you don't point-farm, you can beat the game without ever reaching 500k (also possibly without ever reaching 400k). The point-farming is self-evident in this clip.
Wow, Foster. Kudos on getting over 100k. It was a pain in the neck just getting 96k. The further I got in the game, the more screen passes I was throwing and hoping for good blocking. At that point, you're relying on the first downs to save you!
There is one Moon Patrol listings for the Colecovision that's already on the site, but it has no scores yet.Moon Patrol: Beginner CourseIf you put in a request for the Beginner Course, then it's likely going to be rejected because the Beginner Course is already in the database.
It's about the troll voters, as evidenced by the fact that it's a direct reply to Larquey's comment about troll voters. It's not rocket science.
I'm used to it. Let the babies have their bottles.
I was surprised by how fast the bottles flew across the screen on the later levels. Had no idea Nolan Ryan was hiding in the shadows.
Mara, I decided to play JAWS and double-check to see if you can get a bonus for killing him, and I got my answer...At the THE END screen after you beat the game, you have to wait quite a while! When the music stops playing, you press start and the game indeed does start over (it's a long wait for the music to end first). When you start the game over, it shows you startinga new game and a high score. You do NOT get any bonus points for killing Jaws at all, sadly.
Some things to keep in mind:1. After you grab the spinach, if you fail to knock Bluto into the water before the theme music ends, you miss out on a 3,000-point bonus. Even if you successfully knock him into the water, you need him to fall into it before the music ends to attain the bonus.2. Unlike the NES port, the spinach does not respawn on a level after you use it and lose a life.
Should have done much better than this. Had a few stupid deaths and accidentally went up when I meant to go left as I lost the final life.
Easily the shortest video I've ever uploaded.
The first time I tried this and it got to the final race, I thought it would be over in 20 seconds. Almost 3 minutes later, I'm thinking, "HOW LONG IS THIS RACE!?!?!?"
WHY? Why did you even play this? I tried it once and it felt like my shoulder was going to rip from its socket (my shoulder never felt like that when I threw a 90 mph fastball in my baseball days)!
I voted YES on your MK scores, but if people voted no because of the blood, then it might be because they think you used cheat codes. Didn't you have to enter a cheat code to enable the blood on the SNES and Genesis versions of Mortal Kombat 1?
I did much better this time, but I still say this version's harder than the NES port.
I got six million without losing a single round earlier on the Genesis version of Mortal Kombat (I also failed every test your might because the Wii remote is horrible for that). It was played on Very Easy difficulty, but I didn't film it so I didn't bother submitting a score yet.
I watched your video again to see how close you were to hitting Jaws with the pole. Close to the 17-minute mark of the video, you successfully aligned him with the pole and then made him jump out of the water; however, you were a tad late in making the stab.Another thing to consider: if you let him get too close to the pole, even timing the stab properly won't work because if he's too close, he's technically under it rather than in front of it. Around the 17-minute mark in this video, you lined him up perfectly but were late in making the stab.
I felt I played terribly with too many reckless/stupid deaths; nevertheless, I was able to top my previous submission.
So glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks the SNES version is a load of bull.
To kill Jaws, you need to align the wooden pole in the center with him and stab him in the neck when you get him to jump out of the water (you press A on the NES control to make him jump and then you press B and UP to stab him).You know what sucks, though? I don't know if you get bonus points for killing him at all, because when you kill him, the game NEVER shows you the final score and it is stuck at the THE END screen. The only way to see your score in this game is to play the game or get a game over by getting killed; you cannot see a score after killing Jaws.
This is way harder than the NES version. The mansion layouts are slightly different and more difficult, and the cats are faster/smarter in this one.
"Please sign in to view this video."
Well, that was very strange at 8:49 in the video. In the seconds leading up to 8:49, you see player 2 being awarded 500 points even though there is no player 2 anywhere on the screen. A destroyed enemy landed where player 2 would be if there were 2 players playing.
Video is up now and it's below the picture.
First time playing this version of the game. I know I can do much better than this; there are ways where this game is very different from the NES version and I just have to get used to the differences.One thing confuses me, however. Why does it say player 2 has 500 points when I never put 2 players on? Does this have something to do with grabbing the red crystal ball that appeared after I entered a doorway?I'll share the video soon. I need to log into Youtube and upload/process it.
This game is too easy for me on the Colecovision, as I normally get into the millions there. I'm finding the Atari 2600 ports to be much more difficult than the Colecovision ones!
He does have access to a recording device, as he used to do videos until recently.
I played this game at a cousin's birthday party at one of those Chuck E. Cheese type places as a kid (place was called Major Magic). Never beat the game yet, though.
A yes for you, and thank you for sharing a video of this.
I'm actually disappointed in this score. I had over 400,000 last night when I wasn't filming. Struggled today, but it's still good enough to take the #1 spot here.
The score rolls over to zeroes once you hit 100,000 points. The image below the video is a picture of the moment when my score was about to roll over; I had 99,625 points at that moment and I rode the disc at the top of the pyramid to roll the score over (as you will see in the final minutes of the video).
Thank you. I was a Colecovision kid and didn't play much Atari growing up, although my cousin had an Atari 2600. Lately, I'm seeing the Atari 2600 scores that you and others submit and thinking, "That's a cool game, I should try it." This was one of those games that looked cool to me. I enjoyed it!
Game over at 3:23, then the successful run begins. In my opinion, the Atari 2600 port is more difficult than the Colecovision; I also think the music sounds much better in this version.
How is this at 90%? People, stop voting yes for this score. This is an Xbox One game with Atari Classics on it. Look at the buttons displayed in the picture!
If not for missing several ghosts, I would have easily had 12,000-plus points.
As a kid, I always wished the mainstream consoles had a Thundercats game.
Not a fan of how slowly the doors open/close in this one. In the NES/Famicom version, I can open and close the same door four times before the same door closes twice in this one; it also seems like sometimes the doors refuse to open or close at all in this one.
Third image is a pic I took with my 3DS to show the Wii hardware powered on; I cropped out the bottom rows of the bookshelf as the VHS tapes and DVDs are not relevant.
I should've had a higher score but I screwed up the very first bonus stage and missed a perfect game. The arcade version of Mappy is very unforgiving in comparison to the NES/Famicom version!
Thank you for the tip! Going to give it a try next time.
Wow. Not being able to see the entire maze on the screen at all times makes this game more difficult than it should be.
I was surprised to see your loading screen in Italian, then I saw your profile and realized you are from Italy!
The failed run ends at 4:55 in the video and then the successful run begins.
I'm one of the few who are the opposite in that I love the Colecovision controller. I especially prefer it for games such as Oil's Well.
It feels awkward controlling both penguins until you get the hang of it; even then, it's still an awkward feeling and never feels 100% natural. It's a nice game, nonetheless. The levels with the fires are very annoying.
Loved this game as a kid on the Colecovision; however, this is one of those rare games where I prefer the NES verison over the Colecovision version. NES port of Popeye is the best I've played.
Impressive score! But shouldn't this be submitted under Donkey Kong classics, since that is the game you're playing Donkey Kong on? Donkey Kong Classics was released in 1988 while Donkey Kong was released on the NES in 1986.Nevertheless, nice score!
Although the glare in the center makes it difficult to read the 175,600 pts. in the middle, you can see it says on the right side of the picture that the high score is 175,600 pts.
Video's pic before you play it looks like you're shooting a red Chinese New Year dragon.
As you will see in the video, Game B was selected. This is a pathetic score for me, even on Game B; I'm normally much better than this.
Welcome back! Haven't seen you posting scores on here lately.
I felt I could have done better. Stupidly lost several lives in the early stages getting the feel for this game. I'll try to take a shot at the top score some other day.
You know you're a pro when Andy Griffith tells you you're a pro. Move over, Deputy Fife!
Yes. Option 1: `1-player parallel.
Wow. This crushes the score I set in Flashback category (118,000). Awesome score!
I should have scored way more points (a bonus stage is a guaranteed 10,000 for me), but I didn't see Goro hiding behind the final safe on the level where I lost my last life. He jumped out at me right when I was ready to grab it!
Been playing this game a lot since yesterday and I'm improving at it now. Love this game! Finished with 195,140 points moments ago; however, I'm waiting for this submission to receive the necessary 25 votes first before submitting the new score.
Thanks. This game is more difficult than I thought it would be, due to the fact that you cannot jump. I'm regularly getting 50-80k on my bad runs and 100-115k on my good runs. Some of the deaths seem unfair and cheap, though.
Wow. This game's way harder than Mappy-Land.
Ah, pinball... and this is probably the only game where you can say "I got 930 million points" and somebody else says "That score sucks."
Stupid mistakes and missed opportunities cost me a lot more points. Had over 250k the other night when I wasn't filming. The 140k to 180k range is what I normally hit with consistency. On both the Colecovision and the NES, Popeye has always been one of my favorite games. I usually prefer Colecovision ports of games; however, I like the NES version of Popeye better.
I like this version just for the Mt. Dew logo!
Tried to vote YES earlier, but you removed it so you could put these new pics in to replace the sideways pics. Nice to finally be able to vote on it!
Premium is my favorite. Unleaded is the difficulty I hate most of all. With Premium, the explosion is at least slow-moving and you can focus on everything else.
Slight improvement over my old score. I know I can do much better than this; unfortunately, I run into bad luck where I quickly lose several lives stupidly.
This a sequel to Star Soldier?
First time I ever played this game. Ran out of lives at the giant snowman battle on level 2.
Forgot to upload this one a while ago. Set this score during Season 10, Round 3 of the AtariAge Colecovision High Score Club.
STOP. You're making us Americans look bad at logic games!
Still have a ways to go to catch you, S.BAZ, but I'm getting closer!
This version of the game is more difficult than I thought it would be.
Was it a fun and worthy purchase?
Because he uses two players when he shouldn't use two players; he uses passwords when he shouldn't use passwords; he also uses emulators and shows only pics of those emulators while posting them in the hardware category without actually showing the hardware (like he did for the current high score on Bubble Bobble) while trying to make it look like he played fair and square when what he really did was use save states (and he's done it on other games, as well).He also contaminated other high score charts with point farming. Frankly, he shoudl have been kicked off of this site and off of Twin Galaxies long ago. Even worse than the fact that he is a constant cheater is that he's always unapologetic about it. He acts like he can't remove his current score for this game when all he has to do is submit a lower score to remove it. P.O.S. only cares about himself and his own inflated ego.
I love that you include the boxes in your pictures. I was a Colecovision kid, so I never knew how great the box art was on the Atari boxes.
In the Atari 2600 version of Frogger, you can ride the logs through the sides of the screen to reappear on the other side; you cannot do that in the Colecovision port of the game.
Don't worry about that cheater. Do it for the sake of competing with yourself and improving upon your own score.
Actually, now that I look at your score on level 26 and checked my video... I had over 607,000 pts when I finished level 26. You had almost 450,000 pts when you lost your last life at level 26; you're actually not too far off from the pace I set. Good score!
Go to the emulation category for this game and watch my video to see how you can rack up a lot of points very quickly in this game.
Your score should be #1 for this category once it passes. The current #1 MatthewFelix cheated, has always been a cheater, and has cheated numerous times on numerous games.
It's a good score. You'll eventually reach the point where you only get the game over screen at the dragon battles. It's nice to see you playing the Flashback lately!
It's a shame you didn't have video for this... I totally wanted to see you yelling, "DEATH TO MIIIIIIIIIIING!"
I might be able to use my 3DS to do a quick filming session sometime. I'll see what I can do. It's easier for me to film things that are on my TV because I use Windows Movie Maker, but filming what's on my computer screen itself? Perhaps the 3DS might suffice.
First image is the screenshot of the 141 pts (via print screen button); the second image is a picture taken with my 3DS camera and includes my nametag.
Decided to play Flappy Bird as it's been a long time since I fired it up. Finished with 141 pts. moments ago.
I had to click the mouse button to make the bird flap higher into the air. The trick to doing well is knowing when to send the bird very high into the air and letting him fall a bit so he can get between the pipes and then start clicking again to flap him above the pipes. The timing has to be very precise or he'll fall right onto the pipe.
No, I was playing on my laptop. I did not use the mousepad in the middle of my laptop; I plugged a USB mouse in and used that to play.
Nevermind. Upon closer inspection of your picture, I see that you played in the browser. Even if you download the free game from the Shop, you're still getting those stupid ads while playing.
A vote of YES from me. Aren't those ads annoying while you play? There were several times where it looked like I was going to fail early when I played because of those ads; I was fortunate to keep on going. Like me, I'm guessing you got this as one of those free games from the Windows Shop.
Voted YES for you, but don't be surprised if you get a NO vote here or there. In the future, I'd recommend video evidence for games where you roll the score over. I almost voted NO myself because the score in the photo did not match your final score; however, seeing your comment about the score rolling over and viewing the series of pictures - before and after the rollover - changed my mind.
The pic of your score is terrible and not easy to read at all.
Thanks. Always loved this game and still have the cart for it, as well. Once I eventually get around to replacing my NES, I'll submit scores in the hardware category as well.
As you can see, my name tag is in the video but not in the picture. My cat knocked it down and wouldn't leave it alone, so I took it away from him.Not only is this 479,600 pts my personal best in Mappy-Land, but so is the 46,000 points I had on the very first level (1-1).
What I'm saying is that when you started playing, you had 4 credits. One of the pictures you posted shows you have 2 credits remaining. When you had a game over with like 39,000 points or so, you used another credit to restart the game.The only reason you got a YES vote from me is because those credits DID reset your score to zero points and reset you to level 1 (which is truly starting over). I'm saying you should never have multiple credits because they can mislead people into thinking you cheated. Some games let you KEEP your score when you use another credit instead of resetting to zero. For this reason, It's better to just play with one credit so it reads as zero credits and then just insert a new one AFTER a game over.
Skipping for now. Can anybody vouch that this indeed belongs in Arcade and not Arcade/MAME?
Even though you use multiple credits, I'm giving you a YES vote because the score did reset to zero and it did reset you back to the first level. In the future, though, you shouldn't use multiple credits because it can be very misleading to voters. It's better to use one credit, then just insert a new credit after the game over.
200 points is only one virus killed.
Version 2012 (it has a 16.InsertBunchofNumbersHere)
I have Windows 8, and Movie Maker always has a 1-hour filming limit for me. I first learned it a long time ago when I noticed an error message saying that the filming stopped and that it had exceeded the 1-hour limit.
Due to Windows Movie Maker's 1-hour time limit, I had to pause the game when I approached the hour and continue filming in a second video. In video 2, you will see the score of 999,999 points being reached; you will also see that the score does not roll over to 0 and stays maxed out at 999,999 pts.
I know the feeling. This isn't one of those games where you play 5 to 10 minutes and then try again. You play it over and over and over again for days, even weeks to get the best score you can get. Donkey Kong's a fun game, but it's an annoying pain in the ass to play competitively because you feel you wasted so much time to get the score you're capable of getting.If not for those bouncing jacks, this game would be oh-so-easy.
Hell of a score!
As you can see from the video, this was played on difficulty level 3. My margin of victory was 68 points (100-32).
I like this version, too. The OpCode Games version (Pac-Man Collection) is a little difficult for my tastes. It's hard to explain, but it just feels like Pac-Man moves slower in that game and the controls aren't as tight.The feel in this game feels like perfection.
Right-click on score and view image in a new tab to get a much better view.
Well, I spent quite some time playing the mode where you do both the skating and the surfing. Did 103 levels and quit after 742,670 pts. I don't have the patience to keep playing and roll the score over (not this time, perhaps some other day...). By the way, round 100 reads as 00 while round 101 reads as 01 and so on and so forth.
Also, NOT ONCE did I see you touch the spilled oil. Don't be afraid to skate right over the oil; the oil gives you a higher top speed. Once you improve your play in this game, the greater top speed is very handy at helping you collect things and maxing out the life meter sooner (and thus freezing the timer sooner).
I just finished watching your video and I see that you and I have different approaches to how we navigate through the levels. Some of your deaths were very avoidable (the baseballs hitting you) and some of them stemmed from you taking unnecessary risk and making it harder. For instance, I notice you try to get the 1,000-point bonus from the ramp jumps way more often than I do. I do that sparingly because if you fall in the hole and mess it up, it just makes it harder for you to freeze the timer (timer does not freeze until you max out the life meter).Once my score passes, I'll do another playing session where I film it so you and others can see what I do differently in a video.
First yes vote on this score, and thank you for the kind words. The skateboarding's not bad once you get used to it and improve at it; the surfing segment of the game is more difficult, in my opinion.
Thanks. I can do much better but screwed up by losing 2 lives (made it impossible to freeze the timer) late in the game. I was able to sneak in another quick 1,000 pts. by doing a trick jump off the ramp over the hole before time ran out.
You did better than I thought you would on Pepper II. Congrats on the 214k! You were superb in the Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man games from the Pac-Man collection. I'm much better at the AtariSoft prototype Pac-Man than I am at the Pac-Man collection version. When you play all of them, you realize that not all iterations are the same in how they play.
I suck at this horrible game. I thought the highest score for this game would be much higher than what I posted.
Haven't seen you post a lot of scores. It's nice to see you're still around and having fun with the site.
People, stop voting yes for somebody who uses continues.
Congrats on beating my score in Circus Charlie. The monkeys on the 2nd level are ANNOYING.
Game over at the 1:55 mark in this video, then the successful run begins shortly after.I've had over a million before, but this is the first time I filmed this game. When you reach 1 million points, it rolls over to zero and you get an extra life.
No worries. You've always made it easy to vote YES for your scores because you put in the effort to ensure us they're legitimate. You're the only iOS/phone/whatever user I can say that about thus far.
So how do you win? By double-clicking her mouse?
Used to be so much better at this version of the game. Back in the day, 120k was usually my minimum.
I actually should have had a much better score, but I lost my final life stupidly and early on level 9. Surprisingly, I had no diamonds at all in this session.
Not bad for my first time trying the NES version of this game. Oyama, I'll have another go at your record some other day. Thanks for recommending this game!
Got almost 2 million on Game A for this on the 3DS and over 600k on Game B for the 3DS. You need a lot of luck in addition to doing well because sometimes there's cheap deaths on the sparks levels where sparks just MAGICALLY appear where there were no sparks.
Should've had a lot more points, but I stupidly lost my final life on an ill-timed jump at the top of the screen and hit a bird.
Lost multiple lives in a matter of seconds as the red fire, green fire, and Donkey Kong barrels were all in the way. Fun game!
Definitely not my best game. I did several attempts to get the 50,000-point bonus and came close on several of those tries; however, it feels virtually impossible for me to get it.
I have been voting. I catch up to my votes on a daily basis. I'm glad you're having a fun time on your trip to these arcades!
Almost finished the level 9 boss battle when an unfortunate hit ruined it for me.
You have to show the hardware itself being played in the video when you submit hardware scores. Skipping for now...
Nice score! The 2nd level is the frustrating one.
If you have difficulty reading the score, then open the image in a new tab and you will see it clearly.
The picture reminds me of Venture.
KUMITE! KUMITE! KUMITE!
Nice Master System. Hadn't seen one since I was a kid; I have seen some users on this site play via the Master System expansion on their Genesis.
That's insane. Playing for hours to get millions in BurgerTime is tiring enough!
I already did. I catch up to all voting on a daily basis.
You should say in a Forrest Gump voice, "Sorry I ruined y'all's Black Panther score."
Voted YES, but only after turning the game on to double-check the "BEST TIME" to beat on track 1. If you are not going to post a video, then you should at least do a better job of proving it was track 1 by posting the information (such as what the BEST TIME to beat is on each track) to make it easier for voters. Voters shouldn't have to do your homework for you. Nevertheless, congratulations on a great time!
The fact that it's a CRT TV doesn't prove that you're playing on the hardware itself; it's still necessary to show the hardware in a picture. Emulators can be played on more than just computers, as they can be played on consoles too (Nintendo Wii has a bunch of emulators, for instance). So YES, YOU CAN EMULATE ON A TELEVISION.For you to suggest that voters who don't know what this game is shouldn't vote... that is downright ignorant. Like I already said, I know this game and voted YES for you, but I can fully understand why somebody would vote NO. If you're not going to post video, then you should take every measure necessary to enhance the strength of your picture evidence. Laziness/sloppiness is going to get NO votes from people.
I voted YES on your score, but I can see why somebody would vote NO. For starters, your original pic did not show the actual console. Since this is not an emulation category, you need to show the console. Secondly, you need to also have a picture identifying the game (title screen or whatever) if you are not showing video at all. Not everybody knows this game.When you don't have video, extra measures need to be taken so that people see the console but also know for sure that the game you're playing is the game you claim it to be. There have been users who posted pictures of the wrong games before.
How are you people voting YES on this when the score submitted doesn't even match the score in the evidence???
What horrid graphics! Granted, this Odyssey came out in 1978, but still bad for its time.
That's because I mastered the Coleco games since childhood. It was my first video game console growing up (and my favorite).
I'm going to skip the vote on this for now. Just so you know, people might be quick to vote NO or be reluctant to vote YES because this looks like you're playing on an arcade machine. It does look like the NES version of the game to me, but the fact that you're playing on such a machine might make people assume it's ARCADE/M.A.M.E. instead of NES.It would help your case if you elaborate on what you're playing on.
If I call the number on the post-it, does that mean you give me free cash?
Welcome to High Score! Glad to see RGH members taking an interest here. I voted YES for your score, but here are some things to keep in mind:If NOT using an emulator
For example, we see your TMNT2 score of 160 points in this picture; however, we do NOT see the turtles or the game's title anywhere. If somebody living under a rock had no idea what the Ninja Turtles or Ninja Turtles games are, then they wouldn't know what game you were playing here.Remember, you can always submit more than one video and/or more than one picture when you submit evidence. So for this score, you could have submitted a close-up of your score (which you did), and you could have also submitted a picture showing the whole TV screen so people can see the game itself.
Thanks! Even after all these years, I feel like there's always room for improvement.
I did not edit the CPU's playbook, but it would have been even easier if I had.It's a shame the NES version didn't have trades or drafts where you could draft your team from scratch. I've always wanted a league where every team is human-controlled; unfortunately, not enough of my friends care for this game to make it a reality. Just a small handful of us playing it all these years.
You and Omar can have your little discussion in the discussion forums or on each other's profiles. No need to turn other peoples' score pages into a messy cluster.
Due to Windows Movie Maker having a 1-hour limit, I had to pause as I approached the limit. The top video is video 1. Then below it is video 2, and below that is a picture of the final score.Video 1 ends: 546,700 ptsVideo 2 begins: 546,700 ptsVideo 2 ends: 560,100 pts
I've been playing this game since back in the day when it first came out, so I'm familiar with what you're talking about. Too many people talk about Bo Jackson as if he were the only player in this game (young hipsters who know nothing of Okoye or Fulcher).I rushed for 4,000 yards in undefeated seasons with Marino and Grogan while today's young hipsters say it's impossible.
Running with Bo Jackson's been done to death. When you want to try something different, a little Montana-to-Rice is always fun.
YES vote from me.For those reviewing the video: if it were skill 1, you wouldn't see the birds.
Although I vouched for you and your pic that this is indeed Mushroom Gorge, you need to do a better job with the pics to prove the tracks. Not everybody on the site has a Wii or has played Mario Kart Wii.
Try shooting at 45-degree angles as much as possible. It makes it easier for you to decide whether to zig or zag quickly and you'll be a better shot that way.With enough practice, you can conquer the first 3 difficulties. Skill 4 will always be difficult, however (damn Dragon Room). On Skill 4, you have it made if you reach level 9, because level 9 and beyond is just the third level looping over and over again (no more Dragon Room).
Muy bueno. A vote of YES from me. Estudio Espanol por 6 anos, pero no hablo Espanol (solamente poco).
Baz, I can vouch for the player that this track in the picture is indeed Mushroom Gorge; I have this game on the Wii.
First million happens moments after the 15:34 mark; second million happens moments after the 25:18 mark.
Voted yes a moment ago.
Yeah, you can't use the link that has the word feature in it. It has to be like watchv=WhateverTheUrlMayBe. I had the same problem when I first started submitting videos on this site long ago.
"I kinda plan on beating the game now." I said the same thing over 20 years ago. Still haven't done it! This is one of those rare games I have yet to finish among the games I played over the years. As usual, I get to the sun and lose my last life at the robotic eye part. UGH. Good luck to you!
Colecovision port is still my favorite for BurgerTime. Pepper power-ups disappear too quickly in the NES version.
882 points... IMPOSSIBLE to do without cheating. You used your continues (this game lets you keep your points when you use a continue). It is also possible to farm points in this game.I know you already admitted to cheating, but seeing how impossible this score really is makes it doubly disgusting, especiall since it passed at a 100% rate.
Not very good at this game, but fun to play nonetheless. Thanks to Derek for telling me about the captured ship to have two shooters. Lost my last life on stage 12; they're quite fast once stage 8 begins!
I guess the image I tried to post is too large or something. Or maybe we just can't post images in replies. I don't know. It was a Game Over at level 19 with 194,000 points.
This happened when I was playing today. From level 15 and on, you spend most of your time running for your life and hoping you can corner them; sometimes you get lucky, sometimes you don't.Reply
First YES vote. There's currently a night owl voting NO on several of my scores, however.
I'm guessing the Amiga's good for text-based adventure games (I played The Bard's Tale on NES). I've noticed in your submissions that the graphics are quite nice for Amiga games.
YES vote from me. Keep the videos coming.
Open the image in a new tab if you have trouble reading the score. It will be clearer.
Your response would be worthy of a like button on this site.Mario (as Josey Wales): I a-hear there be-a three kinds of-a the suns in Kansas: the a-sunshine, the a-sunflowers, and son-a-ma-bitches!
And I just bumped it up to 77.8%
You're at 75% prior to my vote...
Don't lump me in with you. Speak for yourself. You're the one that's been talking down and insulting voters who voted NO on your scores when you cheated; even worse, you alienated voters like me who voted YES on your scores when you cheated. I aired my grievances several times over the NO votes I got from trolls who voted against my video evidence; however, I've not acted like you.Be a man and speak for yourself without lumping others in with you.
That second pic makes me feel like I'm looking at the world map of Super Mario Bros. 3.
Is asking for that really necessary in the EMULATION category? If this were NES/Famicom withot emulation, I'd understand asking for a console to be displayed. This guys' probably playing this game via emulation on the Wii (just as he did in other pics where you see the black Wii).
Poor paper placement. Nevertheless, voting yes.
Had to open the image in a new tab to clearly see the score. You should either submit better pics or let people know they have to open it in another tab to see it better. Voting yes.
Nice score. In my opinion, this game sucks. The controls for it felt awkward and I thought the first Top Gun was better.
I'm actually disappointed in this Skill 3 run; I've had better scores on Skill 4 than this. Successful run begins after 7:30 mark in the video.
Thank you! And like the song says, "You ain't seen nothin' yet."
I felt I could have done much better than this, but several stupid decisions hindered that.
Game over at 9:25 mark of the video and the successful run begins immediately after that.
Haven't seen you here in a while. Welcome back! Still playing Oil's Well lately?
This has never been my game at all. I'm always impressed by your scores in this one.
Interesting. When you look at the picture, you would swear it's a zero with a line in it; however, you see other zeroes in the same picture that have no lines. If this truly is an 8 - it appears to be - then it is a terrible-looking 8.
If you're playing on a TV screen at all, you can point your computer at it and use the webcame feature of Windows Movie Maker (assuming you have Windows Movie Maker and a built-in webcam). It's how I film my gameplay sessions. However, if you're playing on your computer, I don't know what to do except to have a camera on a tripod and film your computer screen while playing. Some of the other players on this site might have good filming suggestions for you.
It would be easier if your pictures weren't upside-down to us voters. Voted yes, but had to really take a good look at the pics.
Is this more fun than the NES and other console ports of the game?
My latest stage 1 run:Lap 1: 00:54.3Lap 2: 01:54.6Lap 3: 2:32.3In other words, my total time when I finished the race was 2:32.3 and it was .3 seconds faster than my previous run (despite having a first lap that was a full second slower this time). For simplicity's sake, a fastest lap score on this chart ought to account for only the first lap (which I did in submitting my times) to avoid the headache of voters having to manually figure out the lap times of laps 2 and 3 (since the displays are total times).
For instance, I finished stage 1 moments ago and I paid attention to what the displays said.Lap 1: 53.3 secondsLap 2: 1:51.5Lap 3: 2:32.6I reset the game a moment ago and played stage 1 again. This time, I finished lap 1 in 54.3 seconds and lap two IMMEDIATELY displays 55 seconds and keeps adding up.So to reiterate: the numbers displayed next to laps 1, 2 and 3 are your TOTAL RACE TIME up to those points.
Derek, I want to apologize. I was very hasty with my answer. I fired up Rad Racer 2 and decided to give it a look again as I played it. The game DOES show you your total time. What it says for Lap 1 is your race's total time at that point; what it says for lap 2 is your race's TOTAL TIME at that point; lastly, what it says at lap 3 is your race's TOTAL TIME at that point.
At first glance, this looks like a Kirby game.
The game does not add up the lap times. It just displays the times for all three laps, but not the total time.
I never bothered to finish laps 2 and 3 on any track. I just slam the brakes after I finish my first laps and write my times down on paper so that I have the info ready when I'm ready to submit the scores and videos later.
I assume the first lap might be the fastest on every track, but I didn't bother because I feel like only the first lap would apply to the rules here. Furthermore, not everybody can do all 3 laps and actually finish every race (I can, but that's beside the point); however, EVERYBODY can do a first lap on every level. I never bothered to pay attention to whether or not laps 2 and 3 are faster on any tracks, but I believe the rules just apply to first-lap times.
The title screen looks like Planet Hollywood, so of course it sucks.
The first-lap times can be seen at the following parts of the video...?Stage 1 (1:16)Stage 2 (3:03)Stage 3 (4:16)Stage 4 (6:38)Stage 5 (9:55)Stage 6 (11:13)Stage 7 (13:33)Stage 8 (16:03)
The first-lap times can be seen at the following parts of the video...Stage 1 (1:16)Stage 2 (3:03)Stage 3 (4:16)Stage 4 (6:38)Stage 5 (9:55)Stage 6 (11:13)Stage 7 (13:33)Stage 8 (16:03)
That's more like it! Thanks for remembering how many levels you completed this time.
You should submit again and your score should read as 3 levels completed.
You did not complete 4 levels. You failed level 4.
This was from the session in which I scored over 315,000 pts while playing. I scored 220,400 pts before losing my first life. You will see the first life lost at the 20:45 mark of the video.
I'm also a victim of the 60-minute limit (Windows Movie Maker). This is why the emulation category is more convenient than the hardware category (especially if you're playing Colecovision, which has many games that do NOT pause).
Game over at 22:45 and then the successful run begins. Once I knew my score was a few thousand points higher than the next-best score in a contest I was participating in, I started flying recklessly to just end it.
I'm guessing this is a German version of Wheel of Fortune, and that the puzzle says "The Adventures of Oddyseus."
It is mighty impressive, considering what you were up against. You'd probably dwarf my score if you had a Wiimote/Nunchuk to play with. If you ever get a Wii and put emulators on it, I recommend WiiColEm.
I was able to see the score once I realized the first number was a 0. 067100.
Just so you know, your photos are sideways. This tends to happen to those who upload them from their phones and other devices; those who upload from their computers have not had this problem.
I thought I'd practice the game first before filming; I never thought I'd get the high score on my first try. Thankfully, this game has a pause button which made it easy for me to get Windows Movie Maker up and running once I got the high score.Trickster, if you are reading this: thank you for uploading your video first. Until I saw it, I had no idea how to get the game playing. I recommend playing this on an emulator on the Wii like I did. Unlike the uncomfortable use of the keyboard you played with, you could use the Wiimote and Nunchuk to play this game. I simply shifted gears with the directional pad on the Wiimote while using the C and Z buttons on the nunchuk or the gas and brake.
Nice score! I actually had no idea what to do until I saw your video. Once I figured out how to shift gears, it became playable. I used the Wii remote and Nunchuk while playing. The C button was my gas and Z was my brake (which I never used). I simply shifted gears with the directional pad on the Wiimote.
No retirement for you after 7 days. You have to get a real job and work 30+ years!
Oddly, the Gameboy graphics look better than the NES graphics for this game.
I was so focused on the game, it was difficult to find the time to turn Windows Movie Maker on in the middle of it and start filming. When I was on my last life, I saw a safe opening to go ahead and load Windows Movie Maker. When I lost my last life, I quickly turned the laptop around to film the TV screen so that I could catch the score on video.In the video, you see me pressing the options button on the controller to bring up the list of skill levels; you also see me resetting the Colecovision Flashback as proof that I indeed played the game on the Colecovision Flashback (as evidenced by Cosmic Avenger being the highlighted game when you reset back to the games menu).
First YES vote for this atrocious game.
Nice score! I usually breeze through them, but the few times I have early trouble is if my energy is low at the start of the green Optomom battle (green fuzzball with one eye). If I get through that, it's usually smooth sailing.
I haven't done any additional voting since my last comment, and my points now read as 132 instead of 100; I guess the Top Users list was slow to update. Aligator currently dropped off the top 10.
I just gave YES votes to 3 of Ichi's Pinball scores a moment ago, upping my points for the new month to 100. Going to sleep soon.
I currently have two YES votes on my Donkey Kong Jr. score and 0 NO votes as Aligator's point totals remain at 32; therefore, he's not one of the 2 people who votes YES for me.
I believe you, Mantalow. I accused Aligator in the past and showed the evidence, but somebody defended him by simply saying, "He's a co-worker." SO WHAT? Funny that he shows up in the list at the start of a new month when a player is quickly hit by trolls again; looks like I was very likely right about Aligator all along.
I see your AC initials in 5th with 60,300 points. 3rd with 92,300 points shows the initials AA. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume a button got stuck when you were putting in your initials, but you need to avoid mistakes like that.
It would be logical to guess that the two NO voters are on this list. And since it isn't me, and you couldn't vote NO for yourself, the powers of deduction narrow it down to 8 people. And well well well... Aligator, who has ZERO scores submitted in his membership history (yet has over 1,000 user points) suddenly appears on the list. Somebody defended Aligator in the past and said "He's a co-worker of mine, so it's not him." Who cares? The fact that he is somebody's co-worker doesn't mean he's not one of the trolls.
Just gave you your first YES vote. I said this crap was getting ridiculous and out of hand and would eventually escalate, but people just want to pretend it's not a problem.
I noticed that even if you pass 100 cars, the cars passed total never exceeds 41; however, if even ONE car passes you after you pass so many, it immediately goes down to 40.
You were right about this game having two gears; I definitely wasn't moving at the speed your car's moving at. I'll have to check out the instructions to figure out how to shift to the 2nd gear.
Just got back from my younger brother's wedding. I'll have to give your video a look another time. Great score!
Thank you for that. I saw it as an opportunity to crack an extra trophy. :)
Although I was confused while racing, I did catch up to cars and pass some. I assumed I was already in a second gear at that point, but you apparently say it was in one gear the whole time. Sigh... gonna have to boot this game up again sometime and try to make observations on it.
That explains a lot. I was actually mighty confused while racing.
Thank you. I could have kept going if I wanted to. It's a fun game and it's the type of game I wish there were more of on today's modern consoles.
Voting YES, as always. You're one of the trustworthy ones!
First video at the top of the page is video 1. Video at the bottom is video 2. Video 1 ends and Video 2 begins with 1,376,420 points.1 million points: around the 44:54 mark of video 1.2 million points: around the 23:30 mark of video 2.
In fact, I've voted YES on a handful of your new scores (including your Ms. Pac-Man after dark score). None of the new scores are showing up in the recently-submitted scores list on the home page. That list still shows Zynaps and Renegade as the two latest submissions. The only reason I'm finding your new scores is because of the Vote button.
Odd that these scores are not showing up in the "Latest Scores" column on the right side of the home page after I log in; however, they are showing up in the categories to be voted upon when I click on "Vote (and earn points)".
Watch the Jean Claude Van Damme movie "Bloodsport". You won't regret it. There's a scene where they play this game.
Practicing for the Kumite?
I gave you a YES vote, but you really should start making videos. I gave you a YES vote based on the honor system and believing that you're a fair and legitimate player; however, the pics alone don't show that you didn't use the 10-lives cheat code. For games that have such codes, you really should use video.
First pic of yours that isn't sideways on my computer!
That doesn't make you any less human than the rest of us. As long as you're not some race of alien with an arm growing out of your butt planning an invasion of Earth, you're cool.
You're just like the rest of us here: you're somebody who likes video games. Try to feel better about yourself and overcome any insecurities. You're a person like the rest of us. Happy gaming!
Why? The reflection is proof that you're not a vampire, and we can trust you!
You can also see the score against a black background at the end of the video where I put my initials in for the Module Man Hall of Fame. Evaluation: Impressive.
Watch the video in full screen or right-click and view image to clearly see the score.
All of your submission pics are showing up sideways; however, I'm viewing all of them on PC or laptop. No phones/androids/whatever. And haven't you heard? Those things are for Pokemon Go, not browsing!
Not sure if you're aware, but your images are either sideways or upside-down when you post them.
I'm guessing the score was still in the process of adding up in the first picture. It matches in the 2nd picture, however, and you do supply your ID tag. While I generally prefer to see video of high scores, I understand that might not be very practical with pinball as opposed to at-home consoles. Voting yes.
I thought that rock at the end was going to bounce high into the air (it didn't).
The first computer games I played were on an old Apple computer when I was a kid (not sure if it was Apple II or whatever). The games were on the HUGE floppy discs and they were green-and-black screen games; they were mostly maze games like taking a rabbit or a clown/gnome through a maze. That was the start of me learning how DOS works.
Successful run begins at 7:17 in the video.
No clue what this game is, but just reading "bribe the old man with the fried chicken" automatically makes it sound cool. It sounds like Colonel Sanders is in the mafia!
The only experience I had with the Sega Master System was playing it occasionally at an older cousin's house. He had the console and a handful of games for it; I remember most of his games having similar box art, in that it was white with black lines. I don't remember all the games he had, but I remembered thinking Ghostbusters on the Master System was cooler than the NES version.I had a Genesis after the NES, but I never had a lot of games for the Genesis. I primarily used the Genesis for sports games and Road Rash games. I did play Ecco the Dolphin and Taz-Mania, though.
Graphics are better than the NES version, too.
Never knew this existed. In the words of Mr. Goldblum about the NES version: "That's a big steaming pile of sh*t!"
Thank you!I didn't like this game at first because the jumps felt awkward, but it grew on me. I actually like it now.
Thanks for the fries! Don't know why the French keep taking credit for it!
To whomever mods the Colecovision Flashback category: the game's title is Tomarc, not Tomac.
Wow. The arcade version's graphics blow the NES version's graphics away. I mean, they should... it's arcade. But this game REALLY does it.
That's better. And it looks like it's the correct game this time.
Not voting yet. I do not see the score that you posted. I see a timer saying 5:25 and a score that reads 1,900.
Nice winnings! And interesting, I see the Family Edition has slightly different colors than the original version. I have the 1987 version of the NES game and the platform which Vanna stands on is purple/blue rather than red. I see the copyright years are different in your version than mine, as well. Surprised I never knew there was a Family Edition made years later.
That had slipped my mind. Thanks for pointing it out!
I'll win a city/state trophy in addition to the NATIONAL trophy. WOOOT! 'MERICA! *Drinks can of Mt. Dew*
Unlike somebody else, I actually show video of the game being played to show that the score was indeed achieved and that no save states were used. This is not even close to the best run I've ever had, but I'll upload a new score next time when I get it.
This game looks nothing like what the title hinted at. Very misleading title, Nintendo! I wasn't expecting something G-rated!
This sounds like a title of a movie in which you'd see Ben Stiller get his butt kicked by bikers.
Sigh... you clearly misunderstand everybody. Nobody says YOU are point-farming. The current #1 score (MatthewFelix) point-farmed.
Decided to give the Atari 7800 version of Donkey Kong Jr. a try. This game feels VERY different from the Colecovision and NES ports. You think you're close to the birds and won't get hit, but in the Atari 7800 version, you get hit much easier. The 7800 seems to have very little spacing and a greater chance of collision.As for the part where I lost my last life: I had no idea DK Junior would slide down the pole so slowly (too slowly); it is certainly different than the Colecovision and NES. A good game nonetheless, despite the horrible sound.
These are much clearer than your last few pic submissions; in fact, they're perfect!
If I wanted to, I could get 10 million points without ever beating a single level. Pretty easy to get #1 when you don't actually play the game. Your score ought to have the #1 spot.
Point-farming. That's the only way to get close to a billion points. Cheating is disgraceful.
A yes vote from me as well for Kane. The #1 score is a disgrace.
First pic you can see it looks like it's 1578 or 1978 or something similar; the second pic was where I clearly saw it's 15 and not 19.
Barely legible, but I'm able to make it out. Yes.
Looks blurry, but it's still legible. Yes vote.
Wow. That 4 looks terrible. It does look like a 9, but you're right: it's a 4. The 9 is clearly seen in the AAA score below yours. Voting yes.
Lost my last life by jumping into a beehive that I didn't even know was above me. Lost a few lives that way, actually.
Interesting shooting game made by Broderbund; you may remember them as the company that made awesome NES games like Legacy of the Wizard and The Guardian Legend.
That's a good run, nonetheless!
How far did you get in this game? I once got to the sun in the NES version many years ago, but never beat the game (sun transformed into a gigantic robot-like eye after I blew it up).
This is the kind of score you can get in this game if you don't do point-farming. You get 100k for defeating Maleficent at the end; that will account for about a third of your score generally.
After reading the discussion in the link you enclosed, I'm voting yes at this moment.
Thanks for the link. Sounds like it's generally agreed that Retron is emulation. That surprised me, to say the least. It accepts the cartridges and the controllers, so I assumed that qualifies as non-emulation.So if I'm reading all of this correctly, then: if I had one cart that had a bunch of Colecovision ROMs on it, but I put it in an actual Colecovision, then that would qualify for the hardware category and not emulation, because it's the original console itself.
I'm not going to vote YES or NO yet, but I find this to be very questionable. You're using an SNES cart itself, so I consider that to be the same as using an SNES itself, NOT emulation. I'm curious to see how others feel about this, as well.
I'm not going to vote YES or NO just yet. I find this to be questionable. You're using an SNES cart, so to me it should be filed under SNES, not SNES emulated. Anybody else feel the same way about this?If the consensus is that it should be SNES and not SNES emulated, then I would recommend removing this score then. In the meantime, I - and hopefully others as well - will extend you the courtesy of NOT voting NO until we figure this out.
Should have scored a lot more points, but I panicked when I saw the blue spark on the left side preparing to come down; I made the mistake of turning right too soon and getting caught in a bad spot. You need to be patient and pick your spots on the sparks level.
Friendly tip, by the way: if you play THE HEIST and you are NOT filming it... have your camera ready once you are on your last life. Take a picture before you lose the last life, because the Game Over screen disappears amazingly fast in that game and you will not see your score again!
Voted YES for you last night. Nice score! But dang it, I make a list of games and write down the scores that I have to beat. Thanks to you, I have to update my list and put in a higher number for this game now. Darn you making me make changes to my Excel spreadsheet! *shakes fist*
There's a handful of you guys who are quite good at the Atari games, but you certainly excel at them!
Agreed! The graphics are quite nice, too. Feel free to vote yes on my Colecovision scores, and I hope you enjoy playing the games, as well!
Colecovision is my all-time favorite system; it's nice to see others playing their games too. Hope you enjoy the Flashback!
Seeing a ton of IGBY submissions in recent days. Hope you're all having a great time!
Thanks for the vote and the remark. You're one of the fellow gamers with whom I always enjoy interactions with. Despite the ever-increasing number of trolls on this site, you and a handful of others make this site worth visiting.
"I have an issue with the tactics used to achieve this score."We know you're a troll, so get lost and get a life, you pathetic loser. There's no shady tactics possible in a game which auto-scrolls. You should not only have your vote revoked, you should be banned from the site, period. But you know what? I take joy in knowing I have way more class than you ever will. You are a pathetic loser who trolls on a meaningless video game web site; is your life really so insignificant that you waste your time doing this? How sad for you.
I absolutely HATED those blue things that shoot diagonally from opposite ends of the screen. I had trouble getting past those!
Until seeing these images, I never knew there was a version of 1943 that had 2-player cooperative play! That would have come in very handy on the NES version!
Yes again. That's probably the fastest re-submit I ever saw.
I've voted yes for quite a handful of people on this game over the past week or so. This game seems to be very popular lately! Makes sense that it's for IGBY. Hope you're having fun with it!
I almost forgot to mention: good run starts at 12:46
Maybe your name should be temporarily changed to NintendoGamer.
Excellent score. You're quite good at Atari games.
It's a fun game. You need to be very precise with your shooting. Make one or two mistakes on a level, and it can suddenly snowball against you.
You're welcome. I'm impressed anytime there's a maximized score on an Atari 2600 game. I'm a Colecovision nut and I put up very strong scores in Colecovision games; however, I don't fare as well in the same games on Atari 2600 ports. For that reason, Atari 2600 max scores are stunning to me.
You're supposed to be #1 in this game, not #3. All three accepted scores have NEGATIVE points, not positive. Yours is the score that's closest to zero.
Please remove all accepted scores for this game. NONE OF THEM ARE CORRECT. They all have negative points, not positive.
I removed the score, and whoever has the powers to do so should remove the three accepted scores for this game, as well, since NONE OF THEM are correct.
But if you look at the other scores, that means HE shouldn't be in first, either. The other scores had minus signs that were closer to zero.And I'm not butthurt, I'm insulted that idiots just act like I should have known that was a minus sign instead of a dash. How was I supposed to know it's a minus sign when three other scores with minus signs were all accepted and voted as legit? Well, if I should have known that was a minus sign as Mangia suggests, then I'm going to throw the same standard back in his face. He should have known, too. Other voters should have known, too. But none of them - himself included - made a stink about the other scores having that sign.Simply put: don't act like I should have known that was a minus sign when none of you apparently knew, either.
I will remove this score if Serious erases all the other scores for this game (they ALL have minus signs) and if he perhaps removes the game from the database entirely. This site does not allow you to enter a score that is lower than zero. I tried with the GOLF game, remember? So I had to put in the number of strokes (52) instead of the score below par.
Improving, but still hate this game.
BOOM. MINUS SIGN. Yet you people voted yes on his score and crowned him #1.http://photos.1highscore.com/score22793_20150202015820.jpg
Well, idiots like you shouldn't accuse me of insulting others for "my" mistakes when you're the people who gave the current record holder yes votes. LOOK AT HIS PIC! MINUS SIGN IN HIS PIC AS WELL! Yet he's #1 in this game.
"Score submitted does not match score in the evidence", the troll says. Uh... YES, IT DOES. 37,500 points submitted, 37,500 points at the end of the video, and 37,500 points in the image. Get a life, you loser.
I still hate this game.
Anybody know how to play this game? Took me a few minutes before I realized I could shoot in it! I refueld twice but don't know when or how. I just flew around in circles and hoped for the best!
Still impressive that you memorized a pattern; the puzzle shape is more complex than plain old Pac-Man.
"I have an issue with the tactics used to achieve this score", the troll says. So you have an issue with me being good at the game and using the fruits as weapons? You're pathetic.
Thanks. It's a fun game! When it comes to same games on Colecovision or NES, I usually prefer the Colecovision ports (BurgerTime, Q*Bert); however, I think the NES did a better job with Popeye. As you can see in the Colecovision port, you can go down the ladder on the first stage, but not UP the ladder (you can go up or down in the NES).Nevertheless, the Colecovision port is still a good game in its own right.
Impressive. It took me six levels to get to 34,350 points, and I had over 12,000 on the first level!
Since you got yours from Dollar General, I'm assuming you have 61 games instead of 60 (Antarctic Adventure being the 61st). Because I got mine from Toys R Us, I do not have Antarctic Adventure on it. And wow, you got it cheaper than I did! It cost me about 40-45 bucks to get!
Went ahead and voted yes now; I just wanted to make sure you didn't submit a wrong game before I voted.
Is this the correct game? Looks like Galaga/Galaxian.
I actually should have had many more points; unfortunately, it's extremely annoying when your controller decides to send you in directions you were never close to pressing, or suddenly decides to stop your movement even though you never let go of the direction you were going in.
Skill 4 is very annoying in this game; especially when your controller decides it wants to move you in directions you never came close to pressing.
It means no farming for points. In other words, taking 20 minutes or so to re-enter the same building over and over again and killing a bunch of re-spawning bad guys for points to get a high score. I sometimes beat this game with over 600,000 points, but if you're getting 900,000 or a million points or so in this game, then you were staying in the same area over and over again farming for points.If I wanted to, I could get a million points in this game without ever beating level 1 just by re-entering the sewers and killing the bad guys until I get that many points. That would be point-farming.
Successful run begins @ 12:48.
Video 1 is the first video displayed at the top of this page and Video 3 is the last video displayed at the bottom. Here are the rollovers in each video:
Video 11 million @ 30:182 million @ 49:08
Video 23 million @ 13:404 million @ 31:20
Video 35 million @ 0:336 million @ 13:207 million @ 25:50
I love this game and think it's often overlooked; however, I can understand some of the criticism this game received. This game was probably way too difficult for its target audience (kids who were fans of the cartoon). I beat this game when I was in 3rd grade, but not many kids had the patience for it.It's not the difficulty that bothers me, actually: my only gripe about this game is how useless the other turtles are due to their extremely limited attack range. Donatello's good and Leonardo can be useful, but you pretty much need boomerangs/darts and other secondary weapons if you use anybody other than Donatello. Good game, but it had unmet potential.
Ugh. I beat this game in the past, but it's actually quite difficult. Bombs and missiles up the wazoo on the final level, and it's harder to land the plane on the last few levels because you have less time to get the correct speed and altitude.The ending was very anticlimatic. For all the trouble you had to go through to beat the game, they should've given a cooler ending. Yes vote for you!
Once Donatello got killed, I went ahead and killed the other 3 on purpose because their energy bars were extremely low. Granted, I could have gone into the building on the Foot Clan's compound and rescued Donatello and stocked up on pizzas to have another go at the technodrome, but my Windows Movie Maker was nearing its 1-hour time limit and I was in no mood to split it into two different videos, so I decicded to just end it. Perahps another day I'll do the full game and make two vids if necessary.
Not a good run for me this time. Ordinarily, I at least get to the final level if not beat the game entirely.
You lost me at FOAC. What does that stand for? Something something arcade cabinet?
Sorry. Left a comment itself without clicking on reply to address you. Clicked on reply this time. I played the game on an NES emulator; however, if you're asking about the system that is in the picture, it's a Colecovision Flashback. Got it for 40 dollars American at a Toys 'R Us store back in the winter.Donkey Kong is not on the Flashback, in case you're wondering. If I were playing the Flashback in this picture, you would see a red light indicating that it is powered on.
Game was played on an NES emulator. The system you see in the picture is a Colecovision Flashback, but it's not plugged in (if I were playing the Flashback, you would see a red light indicating it was powered on). Got it for about 40 dollars Amerian at Toys R' Us back in the winter.
Feel free to vote for my newest Spy Hunter submission. Been waiting days to post it here!
Thank you. I agree! The Colecovision version is the best. I love that you can keep all three of your weapons at once and use whichever one you want by pressing a different number pad. If I remember correctly, you can do the same in the NES version via the select button; nevertheless, I still like the Coleco port better.
When I got my Colecovision Flashback, I was shopping for my niece at a Toys 'R Us store and happened to spot that when browsing the video games section. At the time, it was $40 (American). Maybe that price was steep, but it's been worth it to me.
I would imagine you can still find the Colecovision Flashback. I saw it and several versions of Atari Flashback in Toys 'R Us stores. The Flashback has an excellent assortment of games, yet is also missing an excellent assortment; it's basically great but with unmet potential. If you like a lot of Colecovision games and don't necessarily need BurgerTime, Q*Bert, Frogger, and Donkey Kong, then the Flashback will be a worthy purchase for you. It's a shame it didn't have some of those other games!
You say you can't remove the scores yourself... YEAH, AFTER YOU GOT VOTES YOU NEEDED! But before you got the votes you needed, you had the ability to remove your scores. But you didn't care. You were glad to cheat just to feed your own ego.
No, proving Bubble Bobble would not clear things up, because it's already been proven/established that you cheated. Even worse, you were very flippant when I brought it to your attention that I proved you cheated. Basically, you don't have my trust and you don't deserve anybody's trust. You have to go above and beyond on future scores to prove that you didn't cheat in any way. The burden of proof will be greater for you than for others because you were caught.This means when you make videos, you should actually show the console itself turning on and the game appearing on the TV screen as the console is turned on (that way we know it's not an emulator on a different input), yourself playing the game (so we know you don't have friends doing it for you), and the game actually being played with the points actually being amassed. Sounds like a lot? Tough. That's what should be demanded of you after you were caught cheating.
In all your pics with this controller, I kept asking myself, "Why does it look so familiar?" After weeks of trying to recall, I finally remember: the red directional pad looks just like the directional pad I had on a Knight Rider handheld game I had when I was younger!
Yes vote from me, but I really wish you would upload videos when you're getting top scores. If I can upload videos, anybody can.
And that's a yes vote from me just now. The problem with game over screens is that they don't exactly show what the game really is sometimes. Since I never played this game on the Gameboy, I had to be sure it is indeed a TMNT game. Thanks for the additional evidence!
That's fine. I just wanted to see a screenshot so that I know the colors/graphics of this game are indeed this game.
Not voting on this one yet. Could you provide evidence that this game is the game you say it is? Not all of us have played it.
If I wanted to, I could have gotten a million. I was tired of playing and had more than enough to reclaim my trophy, so I stopped. In this run, I had over 300k before I even lost a single life. The other five lives I chose to lose at the end of the video.
Exactly. He went to great lengths to cheat before, so there's no reason he should ever have the benefit of the doubt without video in the future. In the emulation category, he cheated by using a password to get to the million-point final boss battle, and he also used TWO PLAYERS.In the NES hardware category for Bubble Bobble, I guarantee he used his emulator and save states (funny how it's just a picture and no hardware shown in the pic, eh?). Are we really supposed to believe that a guy who needed to cheat via password and two players in emulation just to get ONE MILLION somehow got over 3 million and beat the game without using a continue on the hardware when there's no pic of the hardware and no video? Forget about it. And even if he somehow managed to get that far on the hardware without using a continue, he still cheated via using 2 players.I guarantee there are many other games he cheated on and we don't know which ones. Simply put: he should have extra burden of proving himself via video in the future. He does not deserve the benefit of the doubt on anything. He cheated in the past, he defended and tried to rationalize his cheating in his remarks, and he never removed the scores after it was proven he cheated. So yeah, that is certainly not a trustworthy player.
Took me a few minutes to realize it was a roller controller game, then I was ready to start filming. This is the first time I ever played Slither, actually.
I do believe it's legit. I got 480k myself today and I hadn't played the game in a long time; however, I think it's really shoddy to show an exceptional score such as this with no video of your actual play, especially since youv'e already cheated in Bubble Bobble (in both the emulator and hardware categories) and it's known that you have an emulator (I even know which emulator).For all those reasons, you should have the burden of really proving yourself with video (especially when it's a great score like this). Due to your past actions, you're one of the people who don't deserve the benefit of the doubt unless they show it happening.
To the trolls: it's obvious you have nothing better to do. So why don't you get a life, you losers? You'll be much happier instead of being the worthless cretins you are.
Another NO vote, and now my Donkey Kong score is at 0% as well. This is getting ridiculous.
And the trolls strike again. This is getting old.
Rollovers happen at 11:41 (100k), 17:45 (200k), 22:46 (300k) and 26:20 (400k).
Thank you for the support. For the most part, the people of this site have been wonderful! It's been very fun interacting with some of you and watching your high scores; furthermore, the videos you guys have put up have also opened my eyes to some games I never saw before. This site is very fun, which is why I've had no problem submitting scores and voting as much as I can. It's very fun, as video games were meant to be!
This time they're voting that they're "not sure the person who submitted the score is the one who achieved it." Idiots.
Nice score! It's on now.
No footage of you actually achieving it, eh? Just footage of you with your NES powered on while what we see on your TV screen is probably a different input displaying your save state from the emulator on your Wii.
Successful run begins at 5:27.
Little Mac, Toon Link and Mii submissions are upside-down on my screen, but your Pikachu submission looks normal.
Oddly, your latest submission (had a time of 2:24 or something like that) looks perfectly normal to me.
The fact that you're playing with your TV upside-down makes it all the more impressive!
Screw you, trolls!
One of the few games I like better on the NES than the Colecovision.
I see I'm not the only one submitting late-night scores. Nice score!
Pause the video at 8:38 or 8:39 when the screen flashes so you can see the final score. I had no idea that the glare from my Windows Movie Maker was going to cover up the score in this video. You can clearly see it when you pause it at those moments, however.Successful run begins at 3:27 and you will see the score of 118,000 points at 8:38 or 8:39 in the video.
Just gave this game a try on the emulator. Reminds me of Adventure Island on the NES! Unfortunately, the NES version was much better at moving left and right and changing direction. Quickly lost my last life on the 2nd level with 14,250 points. Fun game, nonetheless. I'll have a go at this game in the emulator category in the future.
Just so you know, I am not the additional NO vote. I was the first and only NO vote which put your acceptance rate at 66%. Somebody else dropped it down to 50 at the moment, though I do not know why after you submitted additional evidence.
My apologies for the vote of no, by the way. I thought I could change it to yes once you added the pic of your hardware. Lesson learned on my part: votes can't be changed.
Thank you. It's necessary in categories like this, otherwise people could be sneaky and submit the same thing in the emulation category.
If you're going to post in the hardware category like this, you need to show the actual hardware.
I was the first yes vote for your score, by the way. Fun game!
My battery pack was at 95%; naturally, I assumed I had at least an hour before it would need to be charged. NOPE! Damn thing died in less than 20 minutes in the middle of my filming session! So I lost all those minutes of footage. Once I was at a safe screen in the game, I decided to plug in my charger, turn the laptop back on and resume filming after that stupid "automatic repair" screen in which I had to restart Windows.The end result of all of this is a shorter video than I hoped to provide to you. In this video, you see me going from a little over 32,000 points to finishing with 48,646 points.
If you have any difficulty reading the score, remember that it's always better to view it in Full Screen.
No. You won't see the major ones like Pac-Man or Donkey Kong on the Colecovision Flashback at all.
And thank you for the vote. I would love to win the contest and I hope I do; however, I am disappointed that I already submitted so many Colecovision scores months ago.I had no idea there would be a Colecovision contest in the summer! Had I known there would be a contest for the Coleco months later and that cracking your own trophies would not count, I would have waited before submitting all those scores. This obviously limits the number of games I can try to set a high score for. My best games are the ones I already set high scores for months ago. Nevertheless, this is still a fun experience thus far!
Nope. I don't have many games on my Atari 7800 emulator. I only have Asteroids, Centipede, Dig Dug, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., Food Fight, Ms. Pacman, Pole Position, Space Invaders and Xevious.I do have an Atari 7800 and a small handful of carts, but I never got around to hooking it up and playing it yet.
Successful run begins at 7:38.This version was harder and more unpredictable than I thought it would be.
Successful run begins at 7:28 and the life is finally lost at 26:28.
Voting yes. It seems like you and M.A.M.E. scores are all I'm voting for lately. I guess everybody else is out buying hot dogs, burgers, steaks, and fireworks while you're setting off some of your own with these high scores.
Oh my God. I friggin' HATE this game. I won the final race with a time of 3:44.11 (960 points in that race alone), but it felt like my arm was about to be ripped from its socket. Throwing 90 mph fastballs in my pitching days was less irritating!What annoys me most of all is the fact that some events give you a foul line so you know what line not to cross, but other events (cough, cough, pole vault,cough-cough) do NOT.Some parts of this game aren't too bad, but the races... God bless the stupid idiot who thought that would be a good idea.
After my game over, I chose 1 player again and took a picture so you can see the high score (HI - 033760) of 33,760 pts.
I like the graphics. Reminds me of Super Bomberman on the SNES, if not better than the SNES graphics.
Wish I could use the Colecovision or Colecovision Flashback controller on this game. I would fare much better then.
I was thinking about doing the same thing myself, but I assumed somebody else might have already sent a request. Feel free to do it yourself. Looking forward to it!
Jeez. You are VERY friggin' good at this game! I had over 315,000 points or so tonight (currently saving the video in Movie Maker, so I don't recall the exact number at the moment) and it's nowhere near your score. The game gets crazy after screen 50.
First yes vote. Yes, Asteroids is a timeless classic!
Thanks for the tip. I never knew that about the 0-car bonus!
Yes. I thought you knew about games having scores that roll over, since you apparently play Intellivision games.
I don't know when/if you'll top this score, but you should at the very least make it a goal to top your own and join me in the 200k club. We will be the only members then!
Like I said before: if I could reach through your screen and shake your hand, I'd do it. Topping your score was no easy task! I consider myself a good Donkey Kong player, so I have tremendous respect for a score that took me many tries to beat. Maybe in the future, we'll conquer the damn jacks and raise our play to new levels!
That is stupid. Jaws (NES) doesn't let you see the final score when you beat the game; you can only see the score on a game over.
Most impressive. This game's harder than I thought it would be! First try, I got 29 cars on level 1 and quickly lost my last life early on level 2; had a little over 21,000 pts.The difficult I'm having is memorizing the layout of the land after a jump or two. After you jump, you have to build your speed back up to perform a later jump; unfortunately, you don't always know what's going to be in front of you while you're building that speed back up.
That thing looks awesome! Does it have those pictured arcade games all in one machine? Voting yes, by the way, as always. You're one of the trustworthy players on this site.
And I see the first vote is a no. Screw you, troll.
1st million is around 15:152nd million is around 25:103rd million is around 32:504th million is around 41:45
Voting yes. Been voting for a lot of your scores in recent days! Yours isn't a name I've seen around here often.
I always thought the titles were somewhat interesting, too. For example, the Colecovision cart for Mousetrap reads as Mouse Trap; however, the title screen which shows the copyright reads as Mousetrap.I watched videos recently of Anteater/Ant-Eater arcade and I have to say the game looks interesting; I have no idea if my skills in Oil's Well would translate well or not. Because of the spider, I think the approach would have to be somewhat different than in Oil's Well.
I beat the TGL password mode, too, but it's a big pain in the ass. At least with the normal gameplay, you could walk around and grab all available power-ups before doing the corridors.
I got tired of playing and decided to end it. I was surprised at how long it took me to get the score that high, though. I thought a level 20 start would have taken much less time than that.
Good score. My favorite NES game.
Score is at the end of video 2 of 2 (the first video displayed at the top of this page).
I have an annoying habit of doing even better when I'm NOT filming. Later got 162,300 points on Game B (lost last life on the elevator/jacks stage of Level 7). I should probably just have a marathon session someday to catch it all on video.
Hadn't played this game in a while and was rusty this time.
1. Score rolls over to a million around 30:302. Score rolls over to 2 million around 49:50
What speed did you choose to play on? I'm trying to understand the rules for this game on this site. Speed 1 is insanely fast on my screen! Would the "default speed" between 1-8 be 4?
Ichigo apparently hit 26 with Olajuwon (LOL!). I chose not to vote at all because 26 with Olajuwon was tempting me to vote no; however, it was rookie difficulty and since I never played this game, I cannot determine the veracity of it. I've never voted no on any of his scores before, so I'm not starting now unless I know for a fact it's false. Care to comment on it? If it is indeed possible and legit, then that's hilarious!I still think nobody can hit 90 out of 100 at the free throw line with Shaq.
My favorite NES game, actually. That and the Legend of Zelda.
Thank you! But the biggest compliment of all would be some billionaire oil tycoon handing me an enormous bag of money with millions of dollars (tax-free) in it. "That display was so awesome, you deserve this money before I head back to my oil fields!"
Been a while since I've been to level 7. Level 6 isn't as hard as it looks. I don't quite remember how I approached and beat level 7 in the past, though. Looks like I'll have to practice and try to remember.
You can never go wrong with playing Coleco or Atari! After all these years, I still get more enjoyment out of those games than I do from today's games.
I'm about to vote YES now that you finally have the score displayed in one of the pics. Friendly advice for the future: make sure the FIRST pic you post shows the score.
Terrible run this time.
I'll take that reaction as a compliment! Thank you. Although it can be so difficult to find that opportune moment to see an opening and just grab everything, I still prefer Premium over Unleaded because the explosions are slow-moving on Premium. Level 6 really annoyed me on this run, however; there were several times on that level where I was caught with big numbers remaining on the timer.
Are you the Gatekeeper? Wait for the sign!
S.Baz recently cracked one of my trophies. While happy for him, I was not 100% pleased. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to roast in the depths of a Sloar that day, I can tell you!
It's refreshing to see a real score today. Not the first yes vote, but a yes vote nonetheless for you.
I could have had many more points; unfortunately, the Colecovision Flashback froze (first time it ever happened to me)!
Thanks for the vote. Join in on the suffering and play this game!
Played Mecha-8 on my Colecovision Flashback for the first time today. Halfway through level 3, I felt like I was getting a good feel for the game and understanding how everything works. After beating level 3, I decided to quickly bring my laptop over and start filming.After the Game Over, you see that I continue filming by choosing Normal difficulty. If you look on the right, it shows my high score, thus proving that it was established on normal difficulty (there aren't lower levels, anyway).I had no idea that this score was close to being the site's top score for this game. Not bad for a first try! I'll give this game another try sometime. It was fun. It felt like 1943, Xevious or the shooting stages of The Guardian Legend; however, this game feels faster and more intense than those.
Nice score! I played this game for the first time moments ago and I had no idea I was close to this site's high score for this game! Level 4 becomes overwhelming once your power is knocked down to 1.
I'm terrible at this game. Even with that in mind, I think this game is terrible, too (I rarely say that about a Colecovision game). I find the movements and the jumps too slow to be enjoyable. I'd enjoy this more if it moved like Miner 2049er. Oh well, I'm just glad to finally have more than zero points!
No job is too big, NO FEE IS TOO BIG!
Flappy Bird is one of the free games available in the Windows shop. I hate the stupid ads that appear while you're playing, though. I saved the screenshot in both its original size (which I felt was awfully big at 1600 x 900) and this halved size I uploaded (uploaded pic is 800 x 450).
First yes vote. One of my favorites on the Colecovision!
First rollover (100k) happens shortly after 16:55.Second rollover (200k) happens shortly after 23:45.
Didn't lose a single life on the first 13 missions; however, I lost four lives between missions 14 and 15. When it rains, it pours! Hated how fast those green ships/wings could move sideways late in the game.
Not bad for Premium, but you have a bad habit of grabbing the slow-down pellet too soon and leaving too much of the bottom and other hard-to-reach areas.You would be better off trying to get half (perhaps one side) of the bottom and other hard-to-reach areas near the bottom of each level before grabbing the slow-down pellet; this greatly reduces how much you have to move to grab the rest once you do grab the pellet. The longer the level goes on, the harder it will be to reach the bottom (especially if there are many pieces left to grab).
Thanks! Don't worry, I didn't get rainbow stars on EVERYTHING. I did manage to get 3 stars on everything, but there's a few levels on Excitebike (stages 8, 9 and 10) where I did not yet achieve rainbow stars. Clu Clu Land was a pain in the neck, as well.Truth be told, I felt the Pinball challenges were pointless in NES Remix, as Pinball is 100% luck grinding.
Here's the video I promised of the Donkey Kong kill screen for the NES (3,230,000 points). And no, the score would NOT be legitimate. Save states were used to make this possible (damn those jacks!). Without the use of save states, the best score I ever achieved was a tad over 212,000 points; unfortunately, I have no video yet of such scores.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j90BcOD4VRk
I came SO CLOSE to topping your new score moments ago. It took so many tries, and then I had 13,470 points at the 2:45 mark in the final round with 2 star punches remaining. I was going to use a star punch as soon as he got up; unfortunately, he stayed down for the 10-count!
[Bloodsport]You break my record. Now I break you.[/Bloodsport]Congrats! That's an impressive score for Glass Joe because he gets knocked out so easily with the star punch.
Quickly broke my previous record of 12.8 seconds.
Got 11.6 moments ago and will upload that later.
Sigh... and of course I quickly break my old record when I decided to play again. Got 23.6 seconds and will upload that when I get around to it.
Nice score! The fact that you cannot retract slowly is why it's imperative for you to get the difficult-to-reach spots as quickly as possible before the level piles on the enemies for you. Having good timing on when to grab the big pellet which slows everything down is also crucial; if you grab that immediately and have way too many little pellets to grab, the level becomes more difficult.Honestly, this game is a great example of risk vs. reward in your decision-making. Friendly reminder: I believe you can't carry any more than 4 or 5 lives at a time (four if I remember correctly), so let that factor into your decision-making when you're approaching every 10,000 points for the extra life.
Same here. Not a fan of Ice Climbers at all. Kudos to those who are good at it! I have way too many NES Remix scores I still need to upload, but I took a break after posting my Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. scores. During my break, I voted for yours and everybody else's Wii U scores (glad I'm not the only NES Remix player here!). Perhaps I'll take pics of some of my other scores in a bit and upload them, though I highly doubt I upload them for all the games in one night!
I think Clu Clu Land was an excellent concept but somewhat poorly done as a game; the controls feel awkward sometimes. I know what to do but it feels like it doesn't always do what it's supposed to. Still much better than the awkwardness of Ice Climbers.
Voted yes. Glad to see I'm not the only Wii U player here!
Congrats! Almost as high as my emulator score, and higher than your previous score!
I see the trolls are back.
Was disappointed that I didn't come close to matching a score I set earlier in the day when I wasn't filming (had almost 160,000 earlier today).
Loved this game on the NES. Had no idea there were earlier versions.
I've beaten this game without the use of a continue before, but not this time. It's very difficult to do when you're in a highly irritated mood.Despite being an LJN game, this is actually a decent game. The controls aren't bad for jumping and using your powers; unfortunately, what RUINS the fun in this game is the marathon session of trying to ENTER THE HOUSES! You hit up on the directional pad so many times in front of the doors and your player does not enter the house; minutes later, you find out you were in front of the correct house all along and your player finally enters. Entering a door should NEVER be the most difficult part of a video game!The order in which you are supposed to play through the houses is random; nevertheless, it's irritating to hit up so many times and struggle to enter the houses. It actually pissed me off to the point where I wasn't playing my best and failed to beat the game without the use of a continue.
Thanks! I was hoping to get to the special stages before needing a continue, but it wasn't meant to be; I was close, however!
I'll try another run again sometime and see how many points I can get. I wasted too many points by buying horses on every level in this run.
Gunsmoke ends when you beat the game three times. Decided to start filming with Windows Movie Maker when I got to the final level for the third time. Although I don't officially know how high my high score really was (killing other enemies that appear on the screen), I do know it is NO LESS than 672,680 points. I started the boss battle with 642,680 points and collected a 30,000-point reward for winning the boss fight. Ergo, conservative estimate is no less than 672,680 points.
I don't know about the arcade as I never played NBA Jam in the arcade, but I do know that Tournament Edition and the original are two completely different games on the consoles (rosters are different).
Been a while since I played this game, so I felt stupid when I lost my final life to the green spinner. Had I reached that 1-UP, I probably would have beaten several more levels before losing the last life.
High score is near the end of Video 2 (first video shown at the top of this page).
Thanks. I hated level 7 on this run (3 lives lost on that level). I was SO CLOSE to getting an extra life on level 8; had I gained it, I probably could've had a few thousand more points.
Reminds me of Oil's Well. Is this a Homebrew?
Almost forgot to add: the good run starts around 2:30 in this video.
I know I can do much better than this. Will give it a try some other day.
Is this a somewhat good score at all on Expert?
I can do much better than this, but made it harder than it had to be by not saving enough power-ups for the faster levels.
Along with BurgerTime, Oil's Well and a few others, this is one of my favorite games.
Took me a handful of levels before I realized the chefs don't throw anything at you on Beginner.
My first time playing Food Fight. I enjoyed it.
The game actually crashes once you go so far. Years ago, I had over 3 million points (almost 4 if I remember correctly). I don't know if it's the number of points, the number of levels done, or both that trigger the crash.
Also, video 1 (the one at the bottom) shows Skill 3 being selected.
Due to Windows Movie Maker not allowing me to film for more than 1 hour in a single session, I had to enable pausing on WiiColEm so I could pause the game and save the videos and then open a new project. The result of this is five videos.I had to pause occassionaly to peek at my laptop and see if I was approaching the 1-hour mark. The end of video 5 (first video on this page at the top) shows the final score. 2,358,000 points, then I chose to quit playing.
I don't doubt that you achieved this score, as I certainly see it as doable (huge bonuses for completing all four mazes); I just think it's not that easy to tell the difference between 2, 3 and 4 in this game. The differences are there, but may be subtle. It's not like Smurf where it's extremely easy to spot the differences. The guys on this site gave me a hard time when I first started submitting scores. They wanted video, wanted proof of difficulty levels chosen, etc.As for the emulator I use, I use WiiColEm. When you choose the difficulty level on WiiColEm, there's a graphic display of a Colecovision controller in the top left corner and it shows you highlighting and choosing the difficulty. Since I saw no display in your video, I'm assuming you used a computer monitor and keyboard.Again, nice score! Going to set this one as a goal soon.
Nice score! But please show proof that you are playing on Skill 4. Skills 2, 3 and 4 all start with the same number of lives. In my Colecovision Flashback videos, you see my hand pressing the button on the controller; in my emulator videos, you see the controller's graphics display on the screen selecting difficulty 4. I see nothing of the sort in your video to suggest this is Skill 4 instead of Skill 2.
There could be other emulators, but I don't know. I just happen to use WiiColEm on the Wii.
WiiColEm. Used MadCatz gamecube controller (steer with analog stick).
I got a perfect 30 in the three-point contest of a Jordan vs. Bird game on the Sega Genesis back in the day. I never had the game, but I rented it from Blockbuster Video.It seems much harder to get a high score in the NES version, however. Even if your timing of the release is consistent, it seems like the shots just refuse to go in sometimes.
Scored 18 points in a round of the 3-Point Contest. The 18-point round begins at 2:24 in this video. Both players are human-controlled players. I didn't feel like watching the CPU shoot (which happens if you select only 1 player); therefore, I chose 2 players so I wouldn't have to watch the CPU and I could play as both players.
You won't see Oil's Well video on my profile because back then, I only took pics. My best run was 199,400 points about a year ago, but I wasn't a member of this site yet, so I took no pics and no video. Since becoming a member of this site, my best was more than 171,000 and I took pics.Recently, I took video of my Oil's Well play for the first time because I'm participating in the Colecovision High Scores Club at the website Atari Age. Although this video is nowhere near my best run, it's still a darn good run. Here's the video if you want to see it.Oil's Well (144,870 points): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue88IrDuoRQ
Finished watching the video. Good for you, man! You did great this time. A few of the lives lost were in stupid ways, but that happens to all of us (even in my best runs, I do a few stupid things).The first life you lost on level 7 was just bad luck, though. Nothing you could do about that. You improved greatly and played much better this time. When you get that super pellet that slows everything down, you need to get the hard-to-reach pellets out of the way as quickly as possible. You don't want to have to deal with the difficulty of getting those when the enemies are back to regular speed. It makes the levels a lot easier.
Glad to see you did a new run! I was wondering about you and waiting for you to upload a new one. Congrats on the great improvement!Voting yes on your improved score right now. I was glad to see after watching the first level that you not only grabbed as many trophies as you could, but also saved the final pellet at the top where it's easy to grab it when your timer is low. I hope you didn't make a habit of waiting until there was 1 second left, however. Sometimes you need a few extra seconds because the explosion will slowly crawl across the screen at the last second sometimes and rob you of a chance to grab the pellet. I hate when that thing crawls in the top row, especially when the timer's about to run out! Wait as long as you can, but give yourself a few seconds to spare.Congratulations again. Very happy for you. I hope it made the game more enjoyable!
Enjoyed seeing Olajuwon with a zero ability as you were scrolling through the players. You should try one with him just for the heck of it.
I was mere seconds away from reaching 100,000 points. I was so disappointed at the horrible timing of that Game Over.
Rollover to a million points at 44:11 in this video.
In re-watching my video, I see that the blue trophies are only 1,000 points apiece in Colecovision; nevertheless, they're still darn valuable in helping you achieve high scores. If you're beating every level as quickly as you can, you're missing a handful of those per level!
Watching your video now, I see you quickly eat the first level as fast as you could. If you want to gather up a lot more points per level, then wait for the timer to nearly run out before you finish the level. Also, you should leave one pellet at the top (where it's easy to grab) as the final pellet. On the more difficult levels, it would be a pain to have the final pellet be down near the bottom where you have to maneuver amongst the enemies. If your final pellet is all the way at the start of the level, then it takes very little effort to go grab that once the timer is about to run out.
Voted yes.Assuming that the C64 version plays the same way as the Colecovision version, then my advice to you would be to grab the blue things as often as you can and wait for the timer to nearly run out before completing the level. On the Colecovision, those are worth about 2,000 points apiece. If you can grab enough of them, you can get 10,000 or more points per level (an extra life every 10,000 points). One thing to remember is that you cannot carry more than four extra lives, so let that play into your decision-making when you're nearing the next 10,000.Everything said above is based on the assumption that the C64 game plays the same way the Colecovision port does. My best run ever on the Colecovision was 199,400 points; unfortunately, I took no video or photographic proof of it. I do, however, have photographic proof of a run where I had over 171,000 pts and I have a video on my Youtube channel where I had over 144,000 points. Here is the 144,000-point run.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue88IrDuoRQ
Scored 19,950 pts. in Frogger via WiiColEm. Fast is the default setting.
Windows Movie Maker really ticked me off this time. I had over 21,000 points on my first attempt, only to find out that Movie Maker never recorded it (despite my pressing the record button). I had over 16,400 points on my next attempt and saved the video. Then on this attempt with 19,950 points, I chose to save the video by overwriting the old video; unfortunately, Movie Maker gave me some stupid "access denied" error and the entire video was gone from the project screen!
At that point, I had to open a new project and just record the Game Over screen. You should have no trouble reading the high score in fullscreen mode.
Scored 308,500 pts. on Zaxxon via WiiColem. Chose to end it after the third rollover. Rollovers are at 11:33, 22:18 and 33:10 in this video.
I voted yes and give you the benefit of the doubt because I saw other screenshots which were good-enough proof of your scores in other games.I do suggest, however, that you make videos if possible. People were giving me a hard time for my high scores because I didn't have videos at first. Although I had a Sega Genesis, this is one of those games I never played. Having video so I can see for myself that such scores can be attained makes it easier for people like myself - who never played the game - to give you the yes vote.
Reasonf or no vote: "Other." Hello, Troll. Hadn't seen you in a while.
I actually should've had a lot more points than this; I screwed up a few times and had 4 or 5 deaths that were very stupid and avoidable.
Remember, there are no springs in the Colecovision port of Donkey Kong. The NES version does have the springs on the second level, however. This was my first time trying Donkey Kong on the Atari 7800. It feels like the speed and landing spots of the spring are more random and unpredictable on the 7800 than on the NES. It just feels very different to me.
Of course I get over 351,000 today when I'm not doing any filming. Sheesh. Once this gets accepted, I'm filming it next time.
I made a video this time. Sadly, I didn't finish anywhere close to my best score of 52 (-20). I dominated the front 9 and was 9 strokes under par after the first 10 holes; unfortunately, I had too many pars and shot bogeys on the 12th and 16th holes. I'm usually in the 55-58 range with a 60 here or there.In this video, I shot a 63 (9 under through first 10 holes; even through final 8 holes). Remember, the key is not to shoot straight all the time. You're supposed to get a feel for the power of your clubs and decide whether to work with or against the wind and decide how much you want to hook/slice your shot. Hook/slice your shot too much, and you lose a lot of power as your ball loses its forward momentum and erractically moves left or right too much. Club selection and figuring out how to use the wind are key.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7o_DjkFyBE
Well, that was frustrating. I got up to LV 9 and I got every single letter while they were red; the letter L had NEVER SHOWN UP. Not on a single level. Sheesh. Lost my last life on LV 9 with a little over 66,000 pts.
Bonus round? Never even knew those existed in this game, and I had this game since I was a kid! Wow.Is there a certain order I'm supposed to grab the letters in?
Nice score! Blows my mind that peopel can get such high scores in this game. I got up to level 8 (bamboo shoot, I believe) and only finished with a little over 44,000 pts. Some levels, it's too difficult to grab the fruit in the center and you just abandon it!
Didn't see a single diamond on this run!
You can pile up the points if you plan well with the in-stage weapons. For example, the cannon that shot one bullet on the second level: I believe I got 6,000 points just from hitting several of the cats with it. The bombs are about 1,000 points apiece on the tribal stage (I believe 1,000 points for the mewkies but 5,000 for the big Nyamco cats).Remember, whether you're using a cannon or other weapons, if you nail several cats with ONE USE of that weapon the stage, the points multiply like crazy.
If you have trouble reading the score, then watch the video in Full Screen; you shall have no problem then.The score rolls over to zeroes when you hit 100,000 pts.19:06 is 1st rollover37:40 is 2nd rollover
Yeah, when I saw a video of it for the Wii, I thought the graphics looked good. I'm not comparing the Wii and the NES to each other in graphics, just merely stating that the Wii version looks more like the story of a boy and a blob in concept; the NES version looked like a young adult or old teenager just roaming around the dark caves beneath the subways of a major city.Even though my Double Dribble score was already accepted, go ahead and check it out again if you want to see video. I left a comment with a link to a video I made where I win by 75 (missed my personal best of 76 by one lousy point!).
The run with 19,136 points was the final run (starts at 11:05 in this video).
Although my score has already been accepted (thank you for the votes), I decided to play again and make video this time just to show you all that the 76-point margin of victory was no fluke.This time, I won by 75 points in the video linked below. I probably would have broken my own record if not for the fact that my controller momentarily stopped working! I was unable to inbound the ball and unable to defend the CPU's shot. I frantically kept hitting the buttons until the controller finally resumed working. It was quite weird! Here is the video to the 75-point margin of victory (missed my personal best of 76).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNiQftWMBIo
Game over and final score shown at 21:10 of the video.
Final score is at 57:35 mark in the video, and the game is beaten several seconds later.
I was disappointed to hear that the 3DS version got cancelled. I heard it was good on the Wii and I'll have to give the Wii version a try sometime.
This is not the highest score possible in the game; I chose to forget about the remaining peppermints because I just wanted to get the video done. If I remember correctly, there's 7-9 more peppermints remaining.
Rules: "Play with default settings unless otherwise specified. No continues. 1 player mode only. No use of hacked ROMs, emulator save states, or emulator advantages. No cheat codes or passwords."
Okay. Going to vote yes. Never heard of games doing that before, so I was surprised to see that on the screen in the pic. I'm a Colecovision/NES kid, so I hope you and others understand when I have questions about other games.
In fact, you get 1 million just for popping the final boss's bubble.
Not only is it not a true ending, the score is wholly unrealistic. If you get this far without using a continue and beat the level, your score would be about 3-4 million points, not merely 1 million. This score should have never been accepted, frankly.
Game over and score shown several seconds after the 15:00 mark.
Voted yes. I hate when they trap you in the corner as you're changing which tier you're on.
Something to remember when trying to get a high score in your matches:
You need to get a lot more stars against Flamenco. Landing a regular punch is only 10 points; a landed punch that results in a star is 110.
Yep! And you have to be careful not to use those stars in the 1st round, or else he'll stay down for the count of 10.
Well, we see that your clock works!
Voting yes, but I wasn't amused with all the scrolling I had to do. Not saying having those pics is bad, just that I personally was thinking "WTF?". Try to have the high score at the top next time you do an array like this. This was like asking for a PBJ sandwich and getting a Shaggy/Scooby sandwich.
I'm not going to vote for or against this yet, but I do have a question: what is this screen about selecting a starting score? Maybe it's nothing, but reading those words just doesn't sound right to me. Keep in mind I didn't have a 5200 or this game, so seeing that makes me reluctant to vote. If there are many others who are qualified to vote on this, then good for you.
Knockout happened at 5:20 of this video. Finished the match with 17,160 pts. The TKO was secured at 2:59.97 of the 3rd round; talk about cutting it close!
The knockout happens several seconds after 2:50 in this video. Finished the match with 13,780 pts.
You will see the score and the knockout at 3:20 in this video. Finished the match with 8,310 pts.
Knockout happens around 2:47 in the video. Finished the match with 9,320 pts.
Wow. Very first vote is a NO, even though there's video. What a winner.
Score is around 5:20 when the knockout happens. Had I realized I had a star remaining, I would have achieved an even higher score if I used it.
I recommend turning off computer assistance. If you have it on, your shooting will be worse because it relies less on your ability to time the release of your shot and more on the CPU's horrid ability. CPU assistance being on is only good for you if you're terrible at timing your shots.
Won by 38 points on Normal/Normal. If you want to see B.S. in a sports video game, look no further than NBA Jam and how the CPU always hits full-court underhanded shots. You are lucky if you make 1 out of 100; you're also lucky if the CPU misses 1 out of 100.
Until you mentioned it, I hadn't realized how many points I got on just the last life. I was annoyed with myself because I normally don't lose a single life until I hit 90,000 or 100,000. I also usually get almost 8,000 on the very first stage of the game.In my opinion, getting to the fifth loop (Level 5) is when that spring really starts to become difficult. Once I was on my last life, I was always nervous about that spring and was fortunate enough to keep on racking up the points.
Score rolls over at 100k. Approaching rollover at 11:30 mark of the video; rollover happens several seconds later. The way I lost my last life in this run was very stupid and avoidable. I thought I had the angle.
I had this run more than a week ago (before I started making videos). I wasn't able to upload it until now because I had to put in a request for the Slow game to be added.
I hate that spring. ALWAYS.
I was going to post a score for Skill 3 and upload my Youtube video for it; however, I had to put in a request for Skill 3 to be added first. Hopefully that will be up soon. To those of you who voted YES on this score: thank you for the support and trust. The video on Skill 3 should remove any doubt anybody had about the scores on the lower skill levels.
Same thing happened to me when I was trying to upload a diagrammed pic I made from BurgerTime to advise others on how to approach the start of the sixth level. I think pics uploaded in comments won't appear; you pretty much have to use the link URL function instead of uploading a pic (like a Twitter image or something).
Cross the road or not, there is no try!
I have included the YouTube video this time. It is the same video as the Facebook video; however, I added an extra title screen at the beginning of the YouTube video saying what the score was. If you feel compelled to, you can scroll to the end of the video to see that the score is indeed the truth.
I still say Paperboy has one of the biggest B.S. endings EVER. Seriousy, work for seven days as a Paperboy and then RETIRE? That must've been one heck of a high-paying gig!
Went ahead and verified my YouTube account and added the video to YouTube. If you see a weird icon/thumbnail that looks like it's unavailable, disregard that and just hit the play button to see the video. I haven't bothered with custom thumbnails yet for my videos.
Thankfully, I figured out a better way to record so I don't have to waste time compressing 10 GB files. Instead of recording with the LifeFrame app open, I record using Movie Maker instead and clicking on the webcam option in it! Now instead of an AVI, it's a WMV or something like that. Then it becomes an mpeg or something to that effect after I save the movie. :)
LOL. Now another troll votes no and chooses "the score posted does not match the score in the image." YES, IT DOES. Scroll straight to the end and read it for yourselves, people.
I meant Youtube, not Yahoo. Youtube's policy is insanely dumb.
It's linked through Facebook. My Paperboy video was linked through Youtube. I had to link my Smurf Rescue and Contra videos through Facebook because Yahoo has this STUPID policy where you have to "verify" that you are not a robot. If you want to upload videos that are 15 minutes or longer on Youtube, you have to verify you're not a robot by sending them your cell phone number. I don't have a cell phone! Never did have one, never will! Some of them actually buzz my hearing aid.
Thanks for the support, Derek. And if people don't feel like watching the entire video, they can just scroll straight to the end to read the score.
0% yes votes so far on this. 2 votes and both are no, and it's by idiots demanding video. CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO WATCH THE VIDEO! Idiots.
Sucked this time. I normally get 0-death or 1-death runs when beating the 8 levels in this game. This time, I lost almost all of my lives on the first run through those 8 levels; on the 2nd run through those 8 levels, I lost only 1 life. Chose to stop playing after the 2nd run.Click on the image to start the video.
What the heck is it with me struggling with this game and everybody else making it look so easy? My best on this is 13,000 on easy difficulty. I can play River Raid as well as anybody else but always struggle with this one.Great score!
If you see just a picture at the top, click on it to start the video. Surprised I didn't see a play button on my screen when I loaded this.
Opted to go with a Facebook video this time instead of Youtube. Stupid Youtube policy doesn't let you upload videos longer than 15 minutes unless you "verify" you're not a robot by giving them your cell phone number; not everybody has cell phones!
First yes vote for you on this score. Never heard of this Atari system before, frankly. I'm surprised at how good the graphics look, since the number is lower than 2600.
One of the idiotic NO votes on this: "I want to see better evidence of the game, system, or emulator." Told you people there's always trolls voting! The second image clearly shows the emulator that is in use.
Yeah, I'm very paranoid about what to download when it comes to software. I don't like the idea of possibly ruining my laptop.This was recorded using my laptop's built-in webcam. Before compressing, this video was 10 GB! Thank God for Movie Maker reducing the file size (it was an .avi before Movie Maker, and an mpeg or whatever after Movie Maker).
As you can see, I put in my username initials at the end of the video. Those of you who said making videos is easy: it was tedious. First: the filming. Took me a while to figure out how to use movie maker and compress the videos, then uploading/processing it on Youtube took a while.I was surprised at the file sizes prior to compressing the videos. I might need to ask NASA if I can borrow their stuff if I ever make a Burgertime video!
I don't remember how early I started, but I do remember my first issue ever. My first issue was black and looked like a dossier; I believe it had the word CONFIDENTIAL on it. I remember in that issue, there were pictures showing the glitch in Rambo on how to bypass the chopper fight and just glitch through the prison walls. That is my earliest memory of having Nintendo Power.I remember the Nester comics always pitching the new games that came out (StarTropics, Battletoads, Lone Ranger, etc.). I liked the fact that some issues were solely dedicated to a single game (I had the Final Fantasy issue, for example). I wish I would have kept those magazines. Not only as a Nintendo fan, but also as one who would have liked to sell some of those issues for some nice $$$ today.
Glad I'm not alone in loving this game! Frankly, I always loved many Colecovision games, but my favorites were always BurgerTime, Oil's Well, Zaxxon, Pepper II, Q*Bert and River Raid. Mousetrap was also awesome! I always found it odd that the cartridge appears to list Mouse Trap while the Colecovision intro screen lists it as Mousetrap.
Not sure if you knew this, but the game's actually harder on an emulator than it is on the NES itself. With the NES controller, you could hold your left or right pad and the pills would usually slide all the way over with no delay; however, there's a very slight delay on the emulator. You can still slide your pills all the way over on level 20, but only for a while. On the NES, you can go much longer and still slide your pills all the way over in the top corners.
Better yet, you can keep your scores here. If I get around to trying to post a Dr. Mario score on this site, perhaps I'll just put in a request with my own custom rules (start on LV 20 Medium, start on LV 20 high, etc.).
Since you got these by starting out on the lower levels, I might wait before bumping your scores. Give yourself an opportunity to bump your own scores first. Since you claim you're not very good at LV 20, why not start on LV 15 and see what you can get? Once you fail (presumably at 20 or higher), then try again starting on 20.Back in the day, my father never gave a crap about this game (my mother loved it and was very good at it). In the past year, my father has finally taken a liking to this game. Last year, he felt embarrassed that he couldn't beat 20 on SLOW! I told him to keep practicing level 10 on medium and keep playing until he gets better and better. Now he regularly gets to 21 or 22 on medium. He'll probably never be a Dr. Mario wizard, but I love seeing how much he enjoys knowing he's much better than he used to be!
I had a bunch of issues of Nintendo Power back in the day, but I always skimmed through the games I didn't have. The older me now would've had more appreciation for reading them in their entirety back in the day.
Can get over a million on Skill 1, but constantly being chased everywhere on Skill 2 is a nightmare! I was very close to completing maze 3 and had to keep navigating between 2 and 3; I had just completed 2 when I was finally nailed before I could make it to maze 3. Score would have been much higher if I had been able to get over and complete maze 3 for the bonus.
That's a nice score! What are the rules here? Can I start on any level I want to using medium or high? I almost always get up to at least level 22 or 23 on high and sometimes get to 24 and beyond; however, I have no problem going many levels past 20 on medium. Starting at level 20, I've had over 600k and 700k before on medium.
Okay, this isn't a case of throwing me into a pool to see if I can swim; it's a case of throwing me off a cliff to see if I can fly! I'm having mixed results so far. Started out at level 19 and got only 3 lines, so I decided to switch to level 14 and I managed to get 52 lines. After successfully getting 52 lines on level 14, I struggled to even get 10 lines the next few times. I then struggled on level 11 as well to even reach 20 lines (managed it a few times).
Sweet giant sloth from ice planet Hoth! I didn't even know it was possible to start on higher levels like that! You play a game for so many years and think you know all there is to know about it, then you read about this!I'm going to try this trick you mention to start on higher levels. I imagine it will be a beating at first, though.
Judging from this picture, it looks like you also like to start at level 6. You're apparently much better than me at cruising through the teen levels, however. I keep getting stopped around 14 or 15. My best is only 219,247 (started at 6 and stopped at 14). I used to think that was an impressive score, then I see you guys on this site blowing it away. lol
Included a pic of the title screen to make doubly sure that this is the correct version of Tetris. Any tips/recommendations on how to better my score? I've played this game for years and this is the best I can do. I always start at level 6 because starting there is where I'm getting my best results.
It should say video, not yes. Nevertheless, 20 "other" votes on NO is ridiculous! That greatly influences the percentages. And as for all the people clamoring for video, you're more than welcome to buy me everything I would need to make the videos.I have made every effort possible to make the photographs prove everything to people. For crying out loud, the Bubble Bobble score shows the game over, the score, the fact that player 2 has 00 points, and the password showing which level I lost my last life at. I've done everything but sit on their couches and play the games with them.The fact that people struggle to believe the Contra score is also laughable. So many people make it sound like it's the hardest game ever when it is NOT a difficult game. Just because they can't complete all 8 levels once or twice doesnt mean that I and many others around the world can't.
The overwhelming majority of my "NO" votes are listed as "OTHER". That's trolling.
Yes: 52Other: 20Better evidence: 6Score doesn't match pic: 1Couldn't tell if it's the person who submitted the score: 1I couldn't read the score: 1
I would have put this up days ago, but I had to fill out a request for Skill 2 to be added in the Colecovision Flashback category. Thank you to whoever added it!The scrolling is much faster in skill 2. I chose to end it when the score got near 100k to avoid the rollover to zeroes. On skill 1, I can go on forever. Skill 2... not sure how much further I would have gone, but it would have been nice to find out. I assume an extra life would have been in order at 100k when it rolls over to zeroes (as it does in skill 1).
Impressive run! The firefoxes can be problematic sometimes. I'll never forget the first time one SPAWNED on me when I was grabbing the umbrella/parasol.
1. I took a pic where the score was easy to read.2. I took a pic that shows the whole screen (score included) and the password so you know what level I lost my last life at.People who vote no are being wholly unreasonable. It's a fact. There's no faking on my part, and it's insulting to question my integrity. I'll call the trolls what they are: trolls. Meanwhile, voters should be careful about voting NO. If you're unsure about something, DON'T VOTE.
Okay, sorry for the double-post, and it looks like the image I chose to upload probably isn't showing, so I went ahead and put it on Twitter. Hopefully this works.
On level six, IMMEDIATELY move right and always start out this level in this way. Once you reach the center, make whatever decisions you want to make. But if you start out this way and move quickly, you will reach the center without having to use a pepper.Reply
