OMG... Even my mini-Godzillas can score better ...

I hope there's soon going to be a game that you're going to like.

Sorry John, but I won't try to beat you. I gave some gos but honestly find it really boring to avoid everything to score as low as possible (to stay polite). When there is no "milking" possible, avoiding everything sucks ! Since I joined the competition, this is the worst formula for a round. I will stay with my score.

Well done for your low score mate !

The game is to fault. It IS broken! See:



1000 points every few seconds.
It's just too easy to leech (or even get too many points by playing poorly).

Lowball is the only fair skill-test for a game with broken score (although I agree it's not the most fun way to play).

To be honest, I progress forward... thus I never saw that such thing was possible.
Thanks for pointing this out

I've not played this game, so I can't comment on it directly, but highest level/lowest score is a really useful scoring system for games when score leeching is an issue. Risky Woods (played in 2013) is a great example of this, but we used it as recently as SotB II last year to good effect.

While it may affect the playability of certain games, it can sometimes be the only effective way of scoring a round that has this problem.
