@Ivanstorm1973: The amount of random chance in this game--all the enemies move randomly and the way the barrels fall down ladders or stay on the ramps at random--makes likelihood of survival as much a result of skill/chance as "Tetris". You have to play like twenty times and one of them will be a really good game where everything just falls into place.

@Mark: I don't know why it worked, I just rationalized it that way. But no, it's just pink and blue monochrome, wouldn't run on the Pocket at all if it were a Color game, it'd present a screen informing me it could only be played on a GameBoy Color. Maybe it's just really sensitive and there's some damage to the Pocket system that other carts aren't encountering. I'll pull out my DMG-01 and check functionality there. Weird that it worked, though.

@Mark: Let me tell you about this one: This game was glitching like crazy on my GameBoy Pocket. I cleaned it and ran compressed air through it and it just kept cutting out in the middle of the first board--it was also the first time I got a glitched "Nintendo" logo but the game started anyway... but then it cut out in the middle of the first board. Other games work fine on the Pocket, my mind was reeling. So I was about to throw it out when, scanning my mind for any possible solution, I decided that the game must just be too high tech for the old GameBoy Pocket to process. Put it in the GameBoy Color, it loaded and ran fine, and I got my highest score ever.

I have no idea what that machine is. It looks very period exotic. Post-cubist organic. Almost looks like a sharply angled xenomorph. It makes me feel very nostalgic. My original system was a ColecoVision. I have no idea if that's a great score or not. Nice cross-stitch.

Thanks Mark! My old iPhone had a great camera but the battery refuses to take a charge and I refuse to pay apple to "fix" it, so I'm using an LG POS, which loses focus after five seconds and randomly rotates the images. It's even hard to read on the game screen, but you can compare the "8" to the "0". Kinda like a detective comparing handwriting. The only other thing it could be is 1:30:39, but then I'd have to be lying to get a score 8 minutes slower. There are two "DKLand" sequels and now I gotta play them. Then I gotta play "DKCountry" 1-3 on GBA. Just ordered "Mario VS Donkey Kong" for GBA. I will be the GameBoy King of Kong.

@Larquey:

All you need to know about baseball:

 

There are nine field positions:

 

1st Base: Hu

2nd Base: Watt

3rd Base: Ed Ono

Right Field: Wai

Center Field: Bacchus 

Left Field: M?b?

Pitcher: Tom Murrow

Catcher: Todd Dae

Shortstop: Ed Owen Care

 

 

 

Tom Morrow tries to communicate the baseball to Todd Dae and the batsman tries to deflect it like blinking against a blinding light.

 

If the batsman hits the ball he transforms into a baserunner by dropping his bat and breaking into a 90-foot dead sprint, hoping to reach Hu and the fielders try to recover the ball and cause it to come into contact with the baserunner.

 

If Wai gets the ball to Hu before the baserunner can reach Hu then the baserunner is out.

 

If any of the field players catch the ball before it hits the ground then the batsman or baserunner is out.

 

If a batsman fails to hit the ball three times, then the batsman is out.

 

If Tom Morrow hits the batsman with his ball  that counts as a hit and the batsman transforms into a baserunner and is allowed to "walk" to Hu.

 

If a player fails to hit the ball but it is due to the pitcher throwing the ball too far alee on either side of the batsman, then that counts as a hit and the batsman transforms into a baserunner and is allowed to "walk" to Hu.

 

Every time a baserunner passes Hu, Wai, Ed Ono and Todd Dae without being engaged by the ball then the baserunner has scored a point for their team called a homerun.

 

If three batsmen and/or baserunners are called out then the teams trade sides.

 

When the teams have traded sides a total of seventeen times, unless the score is tied, the team with the most runs scored wins.

 

If at the end or bottom of the ninth inning the score is tied, then three extra innings are added but play only continues until the tie is broken and the team that breaks the tie is deemed winner.

 

Boredom.

 

I beg your pardon.

I am voting no because there are TMS initials, and you're Todd Shank, and FLARS dooesn't seem to associate to you, but that's just how it appears.

 

You gotta set your initials and have them match your score, and just to verify you're you it's good to have a card (anything from a matchbook cover in a hurry to a laminated ID Card or even a trophy or toy) with your name and initials on it.

 

Right now this just looks fishy and I do not believe you definitely achieved that score.

 

Sorry, I might always be wrong.

Yar! Nice run! I'll challenge that! It's been a while.

 

This is the best pirate game for original GameBoy.

 

Great swashbuckling and you really have to aim and time your sword strikes.

 

Sucks that jump is "Up", and you never really have an opportunity to use the kick attack, so it should just be "A" but Acclaim wanted their "MK"-style controls to be industry standard... and so we suffer.

 

Great to see some appreciation for the simplicity and versatility of the GameBoy.

@S.BAZ:

After "Game&Watch Donkey Kong" I had to come back to this because "Donkey Kong Land" is just too different for me when I go to it to for the fun of playing another "Donkey Kong" game; I never really liked "Donkey Kong Country" on SNES, either.

I just came back to this, if you save it keeps your position but not your score, hardly a "Save"; not that it matters since my internal battery's dead.

I got stumped right there 22 years ago, I remember that I called the Nintendo Hotline to get past it; and I just got past it, again... took twenty tries after 22 years.

I got it plugged in and waiting on the map screen at Desert level 5-1, I think that's level 41; just tolled past 475,00 points with 58 lives left.

I was coming for you but: goal beat.

Wanted to be a jerk to encourage you to want to challenge my score, for the honor or whatever, but I see that you're not really a fan and just played it out of obligation of having to play your game, because why else own it?

 

Despite my certainty of your disinterest, never hurts to try.

Anyway, I should definitely be well past a million by the time I'm done; there are some crazy twisted puzzles in this thing.

Ciao!

I should get cart shots, though; I only did that once for a Japanese version to prove it was the right game.

 

There's only one screen in "Donkey Kong", it's the score that changes and the only regular opportunity to pause safely is when Doney Kong falls.

I use mindfulness of the present moment to hold my focus on the game.

 

This is a variation of mindfulness of breath meditation, but instead of the breath, you focus on the occurrences of the present moment.

 

For the game, I simply apply focus to each place movement might come from and then move Mr. Game & Watch to where movement occurs when I notice it.

 

It just goes faster and faster, but holding focus has nothing to do with speed.

 

Eventually it goes too fast for my body to keep up.

“No” votes for “wrong game” or “wrong console” should be readily and easily moderated and should be subject to immediate submission removal in the case of an improperly appropriated score; that should not affect your legitimacy for only shows that you’re not double-checking your placement.

Users who regularly erroneously identify submissions as not legitimate for nonsense reasons such as the two users who’ve issued “no” votes to this and my other submissions for reason of improper title or console ought to face some form of reprimand.

A 66% “legit rating” doesn’t inspire confidence in the uncertain voter, as the “legit rating” is a legitimate reason for issuing a “no” vote, and that “legit rating” is based on “no” votes issued by trolls who think they’re cutesy.

You are not verifying that it is your gameplay.

You need to have a hard copy of your screen name, or a personal identifier, and present it in your stills and videos.

The stills associated with this score are non-visible, and the video only confirms the score was reached but not by whom.

Just write your screenname and initials on a card or a slip of paper or carve it into granite, it has to be a hard copy.

I’ll vote “yes,” but that’s why people are voting “no”.

“Turrican” is delightfully entertaining but the gameplay is very difficult.

It is in the same realm as “Metroid” but the inability to shoot upwards and the randomness of enemy movement makes some very simple enemies impossible to beat, and there doesn’t seem to be an option to save gameplay so it’s more of an endurance test than anything else.

You take hits from all sides, some enemies can go through walls, and there are many routes and dead-ends on a time limit so it’s kinda like “Where do I go? Leave me alone! I don’t have time to explore this vast, lush world while things I should be able to kill but can’t kill keep hitting me!”

Yes, my official high score is 947 and I was playing to beat that but I hurt my thumb playing “Batman” so I was only able to play up to 679, which still honorably takes the lead.

But we all know my actual high score so even if you come back around and beat me, unless you can run up a thousand points, you know you didn’t really win.

I’ll come back and replay it in a few weeks.

This one really does require a lot of both thumbs.

It actually has so little to do with the show that the show had to make a summer camp episode which was the season premiere of the following year’s season to make the game actually tie-in with the show.

I’m not complaining about the source, But the game itself: designed by developers and written by programmers and played by testers before it was authorized and approved for release.

“Tiny Toon Adventures” and “Batman The Animated series” are great gameboy titles, both also produced by Fox at around the same time.

This is an original GameBoy game, so the category, despite the color system, is appropriate for the original GameBoy game.

Please stop downvoting GameBoy games for this reason.

@8bitDeity:

The programmers made everything too big, in an effort to make sure the graphics came through as recognizably “Simpsons” that there’s no room to see what’s coming next. The hit detection is ridiculously picky. The way to find and then beat bosses is counter-intuitive. The first branch is exactly as high as the second branch but to reach the second branch you have to climb the tree, but you don’t have to climb the tree because you can just jump to get it, so when you come to the first boss, unless you’ve played before or just know, you won’t know to climb the tree and you’ll probably jump in the river. And in the mess hall, there’s never enough food. In the underground passageways the atoms are enormous and seem to move and randomly oscillating rates like real atoms so it’s almost impossible to dodge them. The killer wasps are ridiculous!

You really need to give more evidence than an image of a score on a screen.

You should write your username on a card, photograph it and your full screen, along with a closup of the score and your card, and a shot of the title screen and your card so that we can see that yes you played and yes this is the game you played.

Some people even photograph the system with the game in, with the screen, along with your card.

It can be any card, tear a tab off a cereal box and use that.

This game is so cruel and unforgiving.

If this were given to me as a child, I’d think it was a punishment.

Also, there’s no high score screen, but at least your final score does stay onscreen until you press a button.

This is considered the best “Simpsons” game on GameBoy.

There is no high score screen and your final score only shows for about three seconds.

I think it’s just as good as “Camp Deadly”, which sucks.

I’m pretty sure “Itchy and Scratchy Golf” is the good one.

25 years.

I first played a friend’s copy in 1993, it wasn’t fun then.

This is the first time I beat it, it still wasn’t fun.

Playing for points is very different from playing for lines and levels, which I’ve always done. You have to keep losing, and you will, until you hit a game where the tetrises are actually coming, then you get points; and you have to get as many tetrises as possible before hitting 100 lines when the speed gets too fast to really work in.

I love this game but I’m never able to complete more than one board.

 

That’s a great score!

That you own the game, an NES, and a card with your name on it does not indicate that you actually played the game.

I can photograph any screen in any arcade, visit some meth heads playing “Tetris” to photograph their screen, and then show you my card beside the cabinet or the game, doesn’t make it my score or even indicate that it could be my score.

In future, put your name beside your score.

I’m voting yes, but please, in future, put your name beside your score.

When I was a kid every arcade and pizza parlor had a Q*bert cabinet, and I always wanted to be good at this game.

I feel like I’m good at this game, now.

Man!

I’m playing “Q*bert” right now on Gameboy and it’s just so hard to remember which 45 degree angle each direction on the d-pad goes. I keep jumping to my death instead of to safety.

To catch the lines score you gotta pause it just as it gets going too fast to think, just evacuate the game and pause it. 

 

Then get your camera ready, your score shows on the pause screen so snap that and snap your “game over” screen, and then snap the “high score” menu screen, your high score will be identical to the high score from the game just ended.

“Didn’t stay up long enough.”

I’m playing Gameboy Centipede, now.

That’s a good score.

I feel like Centipede was a beta version of Millipede, it is so much harder with stiffer control and the spider is far less predictable.

This one is a puzzle game reminiscent of the 1995 “Donkey Kong”

?It’s pretty tricky but totally playable.

It doesn’t make any more sense than the NES game.

Anyone can put their name on the High Score screen, apparently with any score they want?

How?

What makes you question the validity of my score?

It’s on the screen.

It’s on the screen.

I input it on the screen.

Anyone can write their name on a card and hold it beside a screen.

You only get to input your name on the High Score screen, though, if you get the high score.

That high score screen is official to the game.

Why do you need me to hold a card with my screenname on it if you can read my screenname here and see the same screenname on the High Score screen in my evidence?

Why do you need that?

What is giving you doubt that I, zerooskul, am not the same “zerooskul” on the High Score screen?

Why do you need me to print my name unofficially to be placed beside the game’s official graphic?

Surely you understand that I turned the game off after I took the photo and it has no “save” function and that the photo, showing my name and score, is the only record.

At this point I’m just convinced you’re a troll; if you’re not, I apologize.

My screenname is my screenname and nobody but me uses it.

It’s on the screen.

I identify myself as zerooskul.

Perhaps it was a different zerooskul who played simultaneous games, which, even if I cheated by starting at 100,000 points is still way higher than the posted high score from France. Maybe some other zerooskul played it and it wound up in my possession through nefarious means; but I’m the one with the photo, and my login on zoetrope.com, one of the web’s very first social network to which I’ve been a member since 2001 is zerooskul. My youtube is youtube.com/zerooskul.

Are there other zerooskuls running around the web who I might otherwise be?

My  name showcases that this is my game.

Do I need to take a screen shot with a card that says my name taken of the screenshot which bears my name?

What further proof do you need than my own name on the screen?
