K5 Round 9 - Hook

Post by BBH » Fri Nov 03, 2006 11:07 pm

(sorry for the delay in posting this)

Duration of Round - November 4th 2006 00:00 GMT - November 10th 2006 23:59:59 GMT

Yes, based on the movie of the same name. Bangarang, and stuff.

If people are wondering why a beat-em-up game directly after a fighting game... well, due to the unforeseen break week problems, we decided to use relatively similar genred games so winner's bracket players would not entirely miss out on a game of that type. But anyways, I think this game's better than the average movie license. Plus you can play as a kid named Thudbutt. Hee hee.

NOTE: apparently this game has an infinite number of loops... which isn't a good thing. Therefore, for K5 purposes, we will be limiting scores to the first two loops, if necessary. If you reach the 3rd loop, you can obviously still upload to MARP the final score, but we'll only be counting whatever your score is at the end of the 2nd loop. Nobody has gotten that far on MARP yet, so we'll see what happens there.

WINNER'S BRACKET MATCHUP:

destructor@HotTeam.pl (1) vs. The Pro (10)

LOSER'S BRACKET MATCHUP:

RAX@AIVA (4) vs. pat33999 (11)


Good luck to the final four!

Pat, I notice that in your game there are no guards during the fourth boss and a full health falls from the sky in the area before the last boss. Anyone know what causes these things?

Is something else supposed to happen? The same powerups always appear in the same place. I watched otaku's recording, and his is like mine, with no guards at the 4th boss.

I know, I saw it too. During practice I have 2 knife guys during the fourth boss and no barrel from the sky before the last boss. Maybe the save states are making things weird?

Yep, it's the save states.

If I'm correct I remember from arcade machine that there was trick on last boss. This trick was for cannon which didn't shot.

I have hope that this trick was in Hook :)

I assume that barrel leeching is not allowed? You can kick invisible barrels without damaging them for 2000 points per kick.

Good game Pat, but you know you can use the leech right? Hence my whole cat out of the bag thing, otherwise the cat would still be in the bag, like so:
(or maybe there is no bag and I was just looking for an excuse to post the pic)

we haven't really reached a consensus on whether the leeching should be banned, so yes, for now it's allowable. It can't be done infinitely and there is a timer, so use it at your discretion I suppose.
