EAB/Lemon Super League 2009: Round 1 - Superfrog



Starts: 00:01 January 18
Finishes: 23:59 February 7

Rules

Post screenshots of your scores in this thread, and write your score underneath. You can enter as many times as you like within the round's time frame.

No cheating of any kind (including score leeching) - this includes save states. If you suspect a contestant of cheating then don't post it in public (anyone who does so will have their posts edited or deleted) - please PM me, Biscuit or mihcael and we will investigate it. If we find anyone guilty of cheating then they will be banned for the entire season.

Please only post your score on either the EAB or Lemon forums. The one you post on first will be your "team" for the whole season. However you are welcome to discuss the compo, game etc. on the other forum if you wish.

Play on Normal difficulty, 3 lives.

Remember, anyone can join in at any time. Have fun and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Thanks. Glad we've started again now, and looking forward to this one - I'd rather play Arcade Pool though

I guess he copied the text from last round (Stunt Car Racer)...

Congrats for winning the Knockout!


edit: How about adding this rule: let's all abstain from playing this lame, unfair gambling game after each level? I mean - come on - the bonus "2x score" is just too much! One can get insane scores by pure luck.

Well spotted - I was drunk

As for the gambling thing - well it's part of the game, I don't really have a problem with it.

So Superfrog made it



519.800

It's fun playing it again
Btw : I took the 'conservative' road and didn't gamble. Most of the time you don't get as many points as if you just collect.

Great! Superfrog. I was afraid I had to play that dreaded Arcade Pool

Nice to start again.

Quick reminder: "Savestate training" is not allowed anymore (it's a too big advantage over real Amiga-users who can't do it).

I'm not sure it was ever omitted from the rules but maybe it wasn't totally clear

It's been in there for a while now. Of course I expect no-one in this compo ever indulged in such a practice...

john is just very cautious now...
There are a few 'unfair' spots in Superfrog, so a bit of legal training is required to get to the later levels

The first picture is my previous highscore table with my brother's highest score and mine. The second picture is my today's play. In winter's world I had over 4 millions points. Then I gambled and my score got doubled. There is also final battle screen and my new entry to the highscore table (my personal best):

9,320,300

Quick advice to others: playing in Normal and with 3 lives in the first levels it is not worthy to try gamble. You can easily get nothing while collecting the bonus point for each 200k gives you extra life. When you have a lot of extra lives, try gamble and maybe you get lucky with double score.

Told ya - it's all about the "2x"-bonus (which sucks).

Maybe the scoring system stops at 9,999,999, so that probably 5 people will "win" this round...

Without double bonus you can finish the game having around 5 mln points.
