Super League 2021: Round 7 - Qwak



There is no voting this week because after this round it is the summer break where there will be a surprise game to play just for fun. Stay tuned.

Until then, it's...

Qwak [lemon] [hol]
Created by game designer Jamie Woodhouse, who also gave us Nitro and All Terrain Racing. Qwak was released for Amiga in 1993 by Team 17, and is an updated version of the original BBC Micro and Acorn Electron game from 1989. There's a whole load of cute egg related violence.

Round Ends: 23:59 (UK Time) on Saturday 12th June 2021

Rules:
  • Get the best score you can, during this round.
  • Post screenshots of your score in this thread, and write the score nearby.
  • Scores to be achieved without save-states, trainers, passwords, and cheats.
  • No continues or infinite score leeching.
  • Finish the game and post a screenshot of the end for the completion star.
  • Full rules and info are HERE.
Special Scoring and Rules:
  • Play through the game once. Stop playing after level 80.
  • There are 80 levels to complete. After that the game loops.
  • For the completion star post a screenshot of the score after level 80. The score screen between levels. It must say 'Scene: 81'. You can pause this screen with 'P' and resume with 'Spacebar'.

Get the Game:

I almost forgot.

Quick note to point out a known game breaking bug. There is a gem points bonus that doubles every time you get it until you lose a life. When you die it resets to the starting number of points. If you get a bonus of 160 million points it will crash the game. The solution is simple. If you successfully get the 80 million points bonus, make sure you lose a life before getting another bonus.

Game on.

Well it's that time again...


I'm playing Qwak live on my Twitch channel from 8pm BST tonight so come and have a look to see how I do - I might well be the first entrant in this round so no doubt I will be setting an incredibly low bar for everybody else...

Thanks to all those who came along My first go was pretty decent, and my second go I actually got a bit further but scored considerably less. Thanks to all those who came to watch, it was good fun! You can see the video here if you missed it (if you are indeed so inclined).

Good to see you back el_pasi. I find when I start losing lives I almost can't stop.

Had a late night session. Turned out good. Lots of gems. Until some real nasty flying keys and spike rain.

Hey acid. It's a great game for a quick play. And when it comes to scoring big there's an emphasis on making the first life count, so it gets much tenser than a lot of games.

First and probably only attempt. I played this a lot back in the day, but I think I got further than I ever managed back then. I made it to the space levels, which I don't remember ever seeing before. Would love to try and get a bit further at some point. I have a real soft spot for this game, it's lovely!

Very respectable score for a one shot.

I had some luck with the gems and got fairly far too.

Now please put down your eggs, this round is over.

Congratulations and happy birthday to our winner kokoriko who has clearly mastered Qwak. The other two high flying ducks are aca0808 and Biscuit.

1st - kokoriko
2nd - aca0808
3rd - Biscuit

Thanks to everyone for taking part. Plenty of great scores and it's certainly a game worthy of more recognition.

John4p has gotten Summer Slam underway while the super league takes a short break. Some more friendly competition to enjoy.

And we need to choose a game for round 8. The new voting thread will be up very soon.

Hi guys
I wanted to show you my video about Super League 2021 by LemonAmiga & EAB
The Seventh Round - Qwak
I will appreciate a lot if you'd like to have a look
Thx to all!

What do you think about this game?
I had only a few memories about this game but now I literally in love with it ? The game is so challenging, and you need practice to have great control with jumps, how defeat and avoid enemies etc...
If you want set highscore, it's crucial to not lose a life in the first 30/40 levels, so you can increase the multiplier and gain a lot of points, thx gems-bonus
Peace-bonus isn't simple to gain it but you need it cause without eggs in the advanced levels, it's quite impossibile to continue
