EDIT: I just posted the hard and imp screenshots since the easy/medium are assured by their completion.

Already posted my oO score, but here are my Vex screenshots.

As far as a potential impossible is concerned, if a direct comparison between Endless and deaths isn’t feasible to implement, something like

[ ] 80 points in Endless AND
[ ] 50 points in Endless Drunk AND
[ ] Fewer than 100 total deaths across all levels

might be reasonable. 75/45/120 would be reasonable individual substitutes if any of the above were determined to be slightly too hard.

Regarding oO,

An easy for completing level 1 (and/or a medium for an appropriate score in Endless) and a hard badge for completing all eight levels seems in order.

I would like to see an impossible, and I don’t think Unity should be a barrier; if the Badge of the Day (time sensitive) can be Unity, then a permanent badge shouldn’t be an issue at this point. I think that an impossible for (Endless + Drunk Endless points) > (deaths in all eight levels) would be a good way to emphasize all aspects of the game while allowing specialization in one or the other, but I’ve never seen a badge with a formula that complicated, and I’d imagine the API would have to actually report that as an individual stat (rather than as a suite) for it to be feasibly implemented. Barring that, meeting three specific thresholds (total deaths across all levels, Endless score, and Drunk Endless score) is probably the way to go.

I’d also like to advocate for 9, which has API, a 3.8+ rating, and past badges history. It remains a good puzzle challenge, just like the previous entries in the series. And I’d like to note that Vex 3 is also out—the entire series, in fact, could be badged.

I just couldn’t do anything with these games.

My recollection of Elephant Rave HD from when it came out was that it was harder than the original, but still falls short of a hard. If there were five badge categories—something like easy, medium, tricky, hard, impossible—it would probably be tricky. As is, medium is probably the better option in this particular case, but neither categorization would be entirely wrong.


Anyway, I have two requests. The first is to put a link to the spreadsheet in one of the OPs—it can be hard to find in the middle of the thread.

The second is to remove the week time limits from the games. Lem did that for the impossible badged games the first time around, but since neither version is a continuous game, I don’t see the reason for the restriction.

Anyway, since this might have gotten lost in the Papa’s debate,

Anyway, I noticed today that oO is receiving main page promotion, which is pretty cool and I assume bodes well for the possibility of badges in its future. Incidentally, the rating is on the correct side of the 3.75 divide again. It still doesn’t have visible API; is that coming by any chance?

9 is also out; it has API already in place, and it’s above the ratings threshold. 10 and 10 is Again were both badged last year, so I’m hoping the same will happen here.

I chose the screens that showed in-game representation of the first two achievements, since taking three screenshots of the same thing felt redundant.

I’m subbed out this round, so this is just for the draft.
