games with 3.8 rating with stat.

Pause Ahead
Blade Rush

I also suggest Sky Quest
A New BerzerkStudio game with a rating of 4.14 currently but has no stat. i’m sure berzerk will add stat. in that game with that high rating.
EDIT: And also i’m wondering why Pirateers 2 isn’t badged, it has 3.89 rating and so many stat. and here it is:
Number of Black Skull ships destroyed, Critical hits count, Number of days skipped via the “end day” button, Number of days completed without dying, Survive 5 days in a row, How many times you win a duel, How many times you fall into the holes, Game completed, Hard Mode Completed, How many times your harpoon hits a ship, Number of Merchant ships destroyed, Number of Navy ships destroyed, Number of quests canceled, Total number of quests completed, Number of quests failed, Number of kills by ramming, Number of ships hit by rum spills, Number of Sea Dogs ships destroyed, Number of kills using sea mines, Defeat the giant shark once, Total number of ships destroyed, How many times your ship sunk, Burn spilled rum with a flamethrower, Surf the wave for 4 seconds, Total worth of ammo loots, Total worth of gold loots, Total worth of goods loots, Total loots worth, How many times you failed in treasure digging, How many times you found treasure
and that’s all!

No, that was definitely not my experience. For the hard badge I certainly needed MrRubix’s walkthrough, but with that and a little practice it was not at all horrible. The impossible, though, I needed a walkthrough, tons of practice, lots of work adjusting the walkthrough in those places where it just didn’t seem to quite work for me, and a bunch of luck. It took me friggin’ forever.

(I suspect that the impossible is easier to cheat, though, given the badge counts for the two.)

Just a rumour then… my bad.

IMO Tarnation’s Hard badge could have been Impossible.
It’s the only game that is badged that stands out to me that was worthy for 2 Impossibles.

What I have heard is that the badge is way harder than the impossible.

It got easy badge number 800.

There’s 34 different badge combinations on the current games with badges, and 8 of those are unique to a single game.

Which 8?

Don’t know all of them but:
Mardek 3: Most badge points, 135
Hero’s Arms: 3 hard badges
and whichever Shift game it is that has 4 medium badges.

Max Mesiria ch 2. 75 points. medium and imp.

(Yes, it has no visible API yet. It’s by the guy who did oO, so it should be easy to get him to add API.)

Hook, Line and Circle Badge?

A big fat YES to this. Seems like a fun game, and Mathmoss’s badge name suggestion is great.

A lot of us over at Clicker Heroes feel, but not necessarily demand or anything of the sort, that the game is willing to have at least one badge. Even an easy badge. Something along the lines of: "Million Hero Soul: Gain 1,000,000 Hero Souls. (It can be either easy or medium, or even a hard badge). Just a suggestion. I understand if it won’t work; just thought I would suggest it for the lot of us.

Nope, because you can transfer savefiles, even easier than usually. Also, afaik, Clicker Heroes has no highscores (understandable for the first reason).

Also, Greg has the rule to not badge idle games.

I know I’m late on this, but arrrgh. Our system doesn’t let us create identical badge names, and I’ll admit that this has saved me a few times in the past. Stupid ampersand. I’ve been using it more lately, and this is my punishment.

I think I’m going to change the name of the FF3 easy badge. Any suggestions are welcome.

Happy birthday, Greg. Also, could you make the impossible have both 100% completion and survival score? This would make it a little harder.

Uhmm… I’m an average gamer, and I got 100% completion on this game a few days ago. Took me only a couple of hours to do so, and an impossible badge is not supposed to just take a few hours for any average gamer to complete.

An average gamer doesn’t have 17 imps, if you want to go down that road.

I kinda agree with Prec’s suggestions, but am really unsure about the imp now. :/

Those are mostly rather easy ones, whereas impossible badges should be insane in the way the one for Vertigo: Gravity Llama is. It’s badges like these which set most Kongregaters apart from the best of the best gamers. An impossible badge for 100% completion would be similar to the one Warlords: Heroes got, in that once you get the knack of it, it’s really not all that hard, and getting the knack of it only requires practice (instead of superb skill).

Getting the knack of it and practice patiently? Isn’t that how you aquire superb skills? That is how I did it with death vs monstars 2. But I don’t know, all my other imps except frantic 3 and run 2(easy one) was luck based.

Just try not to make the imp to easy. Yesterday I saw a guy clear 3 imps in about 6 hours and he/she has 47 imps.
These imps were death vs monstars, hippolyta and Oo. all from the latest years. My point is that for more skilled players most suggestions will sound too easy. Also it’s most satisfactory if the impossible covers all aspects of the game because this show the most skill.

Why would you waste so many words on “completely nothing”?

There aren’t tons of imp badges, there’s like 50. Which is <2% of all badges.


I’m crap at rhythm games too, join the club. But whether SCGMD4 deserves an imp shouldn’t have anything to do with how many other rhythm games have imps. Each game should be badged on its own merits.


Do you really need to ask why people suggest imps instead of hard badges? People are more likely to waste their time suggesting imps for the same reason they waste their time earning imps. For the glory. No-one believes that the best badges on this site are easy or medium, or hard badges. They know that the very best badges are badges like the MoneySeize one, the MM2 one, the Zunderfury one, the DO2 one, the CQ2 one. The only exception I can think of is You Have To Burn the Rope, but let’s face it that should have been an imp too.


No I don’t have 100% in RS II, I’m at 89%. I have however been exposed to the requirements for 100%, so.


The fact that we’ve recently had a rate of impossible badges slightly higher than once in a blue moon should not be a factor. You seem to be saying that Rogue Soul II shouldn’t get an imp simply because we’ve had 4 imps already this year or something. You are wrong.


Do you know anyone who likes the Nest Egging badge? I can’t even imagine the existence of a person who’s happy with the requirement at 85%


Yes I know what the requirements are for adding an imp but i am sworn to secrecy.

Personally I thought Diamond Hollow 2 was very easy. On the other hand Greg is far better than Rawismojo in my opinion. Try it out properly and we will see.

For Red Remover Blast the badge names could be:

Thanks for using my hard badge name, Greg.
Also, badges seems to work good retroactively, even though I don’t have the hard badge yet.

I got more names for building rush badges.
A truck comes loaded with…. (a badge?) (money?) (gold?) pick an ending to this badge name. Or don’t.
No business like build/delivery business.
Truck and load.

Yeah, I lie all the time. You guys should have figured this out by now!

Does that mean I should stop trying to figure out what you’ve done to your “G” then?

There is still an easter egg in my avatar that no one has found yet, but it’s extremely subtle. But if you find it, you’ll know you’ve found it.

Anyway, Building Rush had a nasty API bug where medals were reporting +1 if you replayed a level and earned that medal. Like if you earn a gold medal on level 1 twice, it’ll report golds as 2. I worked with the developer today getting that fixed, but now the day is over and I’m feeling like a failure!

I’ll try to get these up over the weekend since I’m so close on them. On that note, though, I was thinking about doing a medium badge for all golds, but I’m just now realizing at 5:00 on Friday that level 20 is actually pretty hard to get gold on — way harder than all the other levels. So at least I’m glad I playtested this.

Anyway, I would like to do an easy badge for deliveries, a badge for profit, and a badge for either bronze or gold medals. Probably 1 of these 2 possibilities:

Easy: 100 deliveries

Medium: All levels completed

Hard: Something profit-based — maybe $90k or so

ORRRRR

Easy: 100 deliveries

Medium: $40k profit

Hard: All levels gold’d

Or I could just do 2 mediums, with $40k profit for one and game completion for the other. I don’t know. I DON’T KNOW!!! I’m going home. Weigh in if you have a preference, or if you have suggestions for names.

Sounds good to me. I would like to see a hard badge. Fight those bugs, Greg!
Anyway, I think the badges should be called: Building cash and Keep on truckin’.

If you haven’t noticed, Greg is always a few days late these days. Too bad the games only shows when you earned badges and when the game was published and not when badges were added.

I look there everyday. It just that for me it took longer time with pandemic since it requires luck. And that was IMO, so you didn’t have to agree.
