Can we have a game change?
In this game, getting a high combo leads to getting a high score. When factors such as randomly getting knocked off your block and grass that takes too long to get off of that you get forced in the water destroying your combo, luck becomes a big factor in this game. Also, the shark deciding to take up 80% of the screen to kill me is also annoying. So, game change please?

While a high combo leads to getting a high score, it’s not impossible to get a half-decent score without ridiculous combo’s. I got the score below without combo’s higher than ~50, which is easily reachable. The shark has pretty predictable patterns, while some can be annoying, it’s far less random than Super Tiny Leap’s spike patterns.
Grass doesn’t have to be avoided if you set it up right (again strategy, not luck-based). The block pattern seems to be random, but not more so than the powerups/spikes in STL.
Overall I’d say STL way more luck based than this game. Sure, a run in this game will take longer than in STL, but still more than reasonable especially considering that these are the finals.
The only problem with this game is that given enough time to optimize strategy (i.e. not 36 hours but more in the range of a week) it will become infiniwhory.

TL;DR While there are some situations in which you’ll have to abandon your combo, this is by no means the end of teh urn, unlike STL.

BTW, I’ve changed the final scores in the spreadsheet to calculate the actual formula instead of just having the numbers. It doesn’t change anything, but it’s more accurate (still shows the same numbers, but it now knows the exact number).

Let’s do this!

BTW, has anyone actually managed to master the awful collision system? Or do you try to work around it and hope for the best like I did? I usually die before even reaching 5000…

Wii had the idol.

Which wasn’t really that hard to figure out, since he had the best score in the idol challenge. Kong high-scores kinda ruined the secret in that respect. Not that Wii was ever in danger of getting eliminated C:

Not the best score (even got a better one but forgot to screenshot, oh well) but I’ll just post it already, might/will improve later based on other scores.

UPDATE:

The game (more specifically the OmNomNometer) seems kinda glitchy, but after some playing around with it I haven’t been able to glitch more than 2 yummies on the bar before starting, so it seems pretty insignificant unless someone manages to break it further.

Dammit lighnat0r. Why didn’t you read my mind.

Isn’t that like a level 1337 skill? I’m only level 666.
But seriously, I was in a hurry so didn’t really have time to make a well-informed decision.

Almost forgot about this. Not the best score but I can’t be bothered to even unlock the last two bonus levels D:

Already added them. You can still earn qualifying points right up to the end of the redemption round.

Yeah, that’s what I thought. Phew, I was really worried that I did all that for nothing.

The first route I tried seems pretty decent, though definitely not perfect. Saving another 20 seconds seems pretty easy.

Ah, so I’m not the only one who makes maps… Ratmaze 2 looks like a big one.

Me too! We should totally start a cartographer’s guild or something :D
Just finished my Ratmaze 2 map, even though it’s not really necessary to create your own for this game.

Countdown pl0x

You know there is a countdown in the spreadsheet as well right?

I don’t really know whether 12 PM means midnight or noon, and I am too lazy to convert PST.

That’s the deadline you are looking at. Underneath it says how many days/hours/minutes/seconds are remaining. No need to convert anything.
