Title: Evunz's Blog
Post by: Evunz on February 06, 2015, 07:16:05 PM
Hello everyone

Player of almost 30 years, I discovered the arcade at the age of 10 years thanks to my big brother to take me in secret at the time! (my parents being against ...)

At that time, my favorite game is Mario Bros.

I'll spend countless hours on it ... (neglecting the rest of the way across ...)

A few years later, all the arcades in my area are closing one after the other ... This is the beginning of the end ...

In France, the arcade is not as exploited at Japan or America, the community goes out gradually, leaving room for consoles and handheld ... and me with it ...

In recent years, the "retrogaming" found a special place in the hearts of the players, (I think more a fad, but it is my personal opinion ...)

And arcade games back to the front of the scene!

Unfortunately for me, the old songs of the 80s are totally forgotten here ...

No Francophone community is me forward the best score on games like Donkey Kong, Mario Bros. and more ...

I see myself obliged (and a lot of fun) to join a foreign community to continue to share my passion.

I mainly play Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr. and Mario Bros. (MAME)

I also have the great desire (childhood dream) to get my own arcade cabinet.

The community appears to be very open and nice here, I will not hesitate to update my blog as often as possible.

Sincerely Evunz

PS: Sorry for my bad english (google trad) i'm french player

Thank you for your support guys :)

Today, I wanted to live Donkey Kong, my current score is 8780 pts. (this morning alone in my corner)

During my live this afternoon, the concentration is lower and I had a lot more difficult to play than alone.

Since yesterday, I have not stopped playing Donkey Kong ...

This game has something extremely addictive, much like a magnet !

So I also decide to throw myself body and soul in scoring on DK.

My post presentation has been updated, i have to insert a "table" that lists my advancement in each game.

See you later ;)

You'll get there, Evunz.  There is an entire community of enthusiastic supporters behind you.

At the very least, those 73 credits should keep you busy.   :)

Best of luck on the road to 50K and beyond.

Gradually, i take my bearings on the play.
Today, i have reached conveyor belt stage, i find this very hard level.
Would you some advice?

Nevertheless, i am satisfied with my performance ! I have the impression of moving day by day and i take a lot of pleasure.

Agh the conveyers or that fking pie factory as a lot of us like to call it.
That level is a pain in the ass to most of the people on this forum. Sometimes it's really easy other times it's a righty pain in the but.
My advice would be wait till the first fireball is out, do a little juke just like Allen :)   Then pray for some nice fireballs
Title: Re: Evunz's Blog
Post by: Shnypz on February 12, 2015, 03:43:17 PM
Skip to around 5:20 of this video http://www.twitch.tv/shnypz/c/4531697 (http://www.twitch.tv/shnypz/c/4531697) - It's a pretty textbook "free pass" on the pie/conveyor belt level. That's the ideal path you want to follow after allowing the fireballs to spawn. Sometimes the fireballs are jerks and rush down the ladders making things more difficult.

Good luck!

Thank you for all your advice, i will try to apply all this to the letter.

Hey guys

I just stream this afternoon and i've realized that i had a hard time coming to see the springs to mount properly scale level elevator...

http://www.twitch.tv/evunz/b/627741424 (http://www.twitch.tv/evunz/b/627741424)

Do you have any suggestions, about the ease of aboder more calmly this level ?

This is probably more information than you would want, but it's pretty much ALL here^

there are some videos on youtube as well that explain general strategies, but at the end of the day you will just need to become comfortable with really fast recognition and interpretation (for the "trailing" spring).  I use the location where the spring first lands to determine its' "length";  There is a nice .gif in the spring theory thread that shows each of the 16 possible springs, and where they land. 

Keep at it mate!

Thank you very much f_symbols ;)

I just start a game (for testing) Donkey Kong Jr.

Oh my god, this game is also very good !

I will live this afternoon at 14h (French time) to see how far i can go.

See you next time...

http://www.twitch.tv/evunz/b/628702230 (http://www.twitch.tv/evunz/b/628702230)

Today, i really dosed the game to see my early potential.

I have tamed the first stage. For cons, the second is much tougher to me... I have a feeling of being constantly harassed by enemies on the screen !

I do not even speak of a third, which i just did not manage to finish...

Today, a little session on D2K: Jumpman Returns and Donkey Kong.

D2K: Jumpman Returns

I think it is a great challenge, but for now, too difficult for my entry-level...

I'm happy. I managed to overcome my top score !

This morning, a new record on Donkey Kong.

I feel that i mastered more aspects of the game.

I close slowly, but surely one of my goals... the 100K is soon to wear hands !

I live on twitch afternoon to try to get the 100K <mad>

You know there are ways to get 100k without passing the 3rd elevator stage.  I actually got 106k before I got past that stage.  I used the 3rd level rivets, and got as many points as possible, and then sacrificing each of the 3 extra man I had that way.  I then would take the last guy all the way to the elevator stage before dying.

Not really a great end-game strategy though is it?

Keep going good, Evunz. Practice, practice, practice that 3rd elevator and your scores will sky-rocket in no time!
