WEEK 15 & 16 Game: Excitebike Platform(s): NES Challenge Type: High Score Game Details: Mode B, Track 3, Fastest Time When: Mar 21st - Apr 8th, 2019
I’ve updated the website with the new game, let’s get racing!
Good luck everyone, please submit your scores via screenshot or video by replying directly to this post!
Competitions last one week, close on Sunday night @ midnight.
Post screenshots in this thread as proof.
The winner from the previous week chooses the next game to play.
You cannot choose twice in a row. 2nd place will choose if someone wins two weeks in a row.
If there’s a tie, the person that submitted the high score first gets to choose.
Games must be high score compatible (think “arcade style scores” like Pac-Man, or Spy Hunter, not Super Mario).
Emulation is okay (MAME is often the best for high scores).
No save state manipulation (pausing to take a break is fine though).
Submit scores as soon as you get them! To keep the competition rolling and fair, do not hold on until the last moment to submit.
Points will be awarded for the entrants, based on the position finished for the week. This is to encourage wider participation, and the points will be posted each week as well as on the website.
Any honest attempt:
Overall, we should keep it simple. This is just a good time, not a crazy official high score competition! Game plays should ideally be short and fun so people that can’t invest hours into this can still compete. Obviously we are working on a trust based system here, so don’t ruin it for the others!
Thanks guys! On my first few shots I was getting around 1:40 and it seemed impossible! … but you save so much time from not getting knocked off. I think i fell off just the once, and luckily near the top of screen, in the 55:45 run. It’s by no means perfect though!
My times were on the 3DS 3D Classics/Arika version if it wasn’t apparent from the pics. I assume it’s the same as the others but then a lot of the other screenshots in here have the default best time for that track as 1:16:00 … I think mine had a default of 1:09:00 … I don’t have any other version to compare with first hand though.
Yeah I looked into this a bit and it’s definitely different.
The 3DS version has a single person submitting runs, and he’s faster than some of the track times attained by the entire community of runners on the NES, including the current record holder in all categories AndrewG.
Good on you for noticing, and thanks for being honest!
