WCC4 week 7 : SPDCOIN

Post by Phil Lamat » Tue Dec 07, 2004 6:51 pm

An old game for week 7 : Speed Coin.
I hope you will find it addictive as when I played it for the first time.

:D

Finally a Golden Era game!

Not a bad one either. I've having trouble getting a feel for it, but I'm trying.

I'll throw in a $100 (usd) reward for the eventual first place winner at the end of the week.

And it does have music, des.

JBS took around 15 minutes to do 1 million ;
if it's marathonable, then a lot of people should reach 9999999 (or 9999990 I don't know) in less than 3 hours.

The winner (for WCC, I don't know what John wants to do for his 100$ reward) will be the first to reach that mark ; then 7 pts for the second reaching it etc ...
If the counter rolls over, you can go on for Marp score, but that will be done for WCC : you will get 10 points

Now I'm waiting for those marathon scores :)

I played last night (exactly 22 minutes) and got around 232000 (no INP). If memory serves, my best 1st round was 15.6 or 15.9, no proofs.

An "old" and "ugly" game, however very interesting game, at this time (at least it is my starting though). But I think I will not got so "far" this week :(

I HATE MARATHONABLE GAMES!!!!! :evil:

Well... I savestated that 203050 (not 232000), and the Stage1 best time was recorded...

16.9, but I don't remembet what I did!!! :( Nothing special... so I think is possible increase it a lot (or a bit).

With this personal 16.9 in this starting 22 minutes, I am thinking I am not so BAD in this game :wink: PS.: I just arrived home, and dont played more (best=203050)... just openned WolfMAME/spdcoins to see my 1st stage record. Yep... and I just invited a lot of good gamers to play this game to WCC4-R7.
