Oh, I thought it showed the time in seconds.

Need I remind people again that the difficulty of badges should not be based on the very best scores? An impossible badge should be extremely hard for the average player, not for the very best player.

When I made that suggestion, I did so with input from players more skilled at STTKY2 than I am. While that biased the recommended time toward the most skilled players, it is worth noting any sort of impossible-caliber speedrun should require a high level of execution, beyond what most players will be capable of doing. For the moment, at least, I wouldn’t really change that requirement.

It would probably be easier to find a balance between execution and general accessibility with more completion times; a possible solution would be to add just the game completion (hard) badge first. This would encourage more plays and provide more data regarding completion times than currently exists. Unfortunately, a lot of the top times would probably be hacked, but it should make clearer the ideal time for the impossible badge.

Speed-run badges in general are terrible.

I’d fully support a hard badge on it if the full version is released on Kong. (Don’t know what’s here is just the beta version or a demo.)

Certainly not impossible, perhaps a hard.

Win the game without taking damage more than once in the last try.

No, thanks.

I managed to beat the game in 5 days, and 4 days is somewhat possible for the better games amongst us. Might be 3 if you’re really good at avoiding everything. But I won’t suggest a badge for that low. Besides, I got hit hardcore all the time.

High-Score with no continues is harder than 1,000,000 in High-Score IMO.

EDIT @ your edit: That’s more like it.

EDIT EDIT: Never mind, it’s quite easy when you aren’t going for slash. That might actually be an easy hard.

Beating High-Score Mode with no continues is actually pretty easy. I only needed 4 tries, meanwhile I have yet to reach 1 million, let alone 1,200,000.

I’m not sure for the impossible. A hard for all cities infected would be enough. Getting all upgrades is just a question of time, not a question of skills.

Okay, erasing out the “all upgrades maxed” part and setting the difficulty down to hard should suffice.

EDIT: Realized that an achievement is to infect every city. facepalm

I’m very happy they badged it too. Looks like the overall Kongregate community hates it though.
