TRIFECTA STEP 1...
« on: March 15, 2014, 06:28:06 PM »
Done.  8)

I think I have the hang of this game now. The more I play it, the more I appreciate it.

In fact, at this point I would say that I am following the Ben Falls emotional arc, in that I have realized that playing this is more enjoyable than playing Junior.

I wanted to kill myself off at exactly 1M, but I f'ed up because I don't know how many points things are worth.  :-*

After that I just kinda pressed buttons until game over.  <pacman>

Get off your asses and grab that trifecta badge if you want to be #2, because I'm coming for it...

This was kind of an accident.

My intention was to get to the point where I was getting 600K+ every time, and then stream 1M point attempts, but then, out of nowhere, it just happened.

I'll put it this way, I got my first 400K four days ago. Then I had a bunch of 300-400K crap games.

Then today I got 652,800. I decided to give it another shot to see if I could do it again, and all of a sudden, 1 million.

Totally took me by surprise.

I am definitely interested in going for a higher score.

Probably Junior, it will be easier than DK. But I'm not actually in a hurry so there's still plenty of time if somebody else wants to get that badge first.  ;D

The million at DK3 was actually harder than I thought it would be. There was, obviously, a moment where everything "clicked" and the second that happened my PB basically doubled, but I did have to put some solid learning and thinking into the game in order to get to the clicking point.

Though this game will get a lot harder, a LOT, past the point where I can rely on a free guy every 30,000 points. 2 million, or the repetitive blue screen, is a ton more challenging...

Yeah, DK3 is all that stands in my way for this badge but my pb is around 300K, basically level 19, 20, 21. Maybe one day. I am not in a hurry.

Nice score! What MAME setting was this on?

The million at DK3 was actually harder than I thought it would be. There was, obviously, a moment where everything "clicked" and the second that happened my PB basically doubled, but I did have to put some solid learning and thinking into the game in order to get to the clicking point.

This is how I think most games are that give you a lot of bonus lives: You work for a bit plugging the leaks until you reach that critical level where all of a sudden you learn that one more trick or principle that makes your PB just sky-rocket. This is how I experienced BurgerTime, Q*bert, Track and Field, and Joust. All very similar when you get to that tipping point.
