RGB High Score Battle! - Week 55 & 56: Super Mario Bros. 3

Site is updated! Here’s our current week details:

WEEK 55 & 56
Game: Super Mario Bros. 3
Platform(s): NES
Challenge Type: Speed Run
Game Details: 1-1, Fastest Time
When: Sep 28th - Oct 11th, 2020
Chosen By: Raskulous

I’ve updated the website with the new game, let’s get flying!

Good luck everyone, please submit your scores via screenshot or video by replying directly to this post!


  1. Competitions last two weeks, close on Sunday night @ midnight.
  2. Post screenshots in this thread as proof.
  3. The winner from the previous week chooses the next game to play.
  4. You cannot choose twice in a row. 2nd place will choose if someone wins two weeks in a row.
  5. If there’s a tie, the person that submitted the high score first gets to choose.
  6. Games must be high score compatible (think “arcade style scores” like Pac-Man, or Spy Hunter, not Super Mario).
  7. Emulation is okay (MAME is often the best for high scores).
  8. No save state manipulation (pausing to take a break is fine though).
  9. 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.

1st: 10 points
2nd: 7 points
3rd: 5 points
4th: 3 points
5th: 2 points
Any honest attempt: 1 point

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!

Here’s a simple website I made to keep track of the competition.


My first attempt

Okay, shaved off one second. Not sure if I could shave off another.

Never mind. Got an even faster time and saved 2 seconds.

Hoping someone can beat that. I can always use a good excuse to boot this game :slightly_smiling_face:


This picture was shit because I did it on my switch and had to film myself and then screen cap the time at the end and the camera was all askew. If you need the whole screen I’ll do it again.

Nah that’s fine, no worries!

I did almost have a 293… but I accidentally jumped too early and over the star block…


and ended up with a 286… gah!

Damn dude

Use the goddamn screenshot button


Oh does it bother you? I’ll be sure to never upload the screenshot and continue only to take pics with my phone.


Gotten very close to 293 a few time but I think 292 might be my limit:
