Post by mushroom » Wed Nov 07, 2018 1:03 pm

Hello and welcome to the One Credit Contest!! It's a competition to see who can get the farthest in a game on a single credit. Our game this week, chosen by Valigarmander, is Kung Fu for the NES!

Image

The rules:

-NES/Famicom version only
-Select Game A
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-US or Japanese version is acceptable
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable

Simply post your score in the following form:

Code: Select all

Name - Loop-Stage - Score
"Loop" means whatever number is next to the dragon icon, e.g. "0-3" if you game overed on stage 3 of the first loop.

A screen shot is optional. Just don't cheat. There's not a lot at stake here :P

I will maintain a leader board in this post, and about one week from now the winner will be decided. Progress is determined by stage, then score. The winner gets to choose our next game.

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. mushroom - 1-4 - 195,270
2. Boo - 1-2 - 178,510
3. Valigarmander - 1-2 - 164,610
4. Marilink - 0-4 - 73,690
You may post new scores as often as you wish. Have fun!

P.S. If anyone has any trouble obtaining or running the game, please let me know! I will be glad to help!

This ought to be fun. I don't think I ever made it past the second floor as a kid.

Valigarmander - 1-2 - 164,610

I made it back to Floor 2, and suddenly I can't remember how to deal with the falling traps.

So my good official NES controller seems to have a problem with its B-button. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Can I use a third-party controller? This is essentially an unofficial NES Max. I promise I won't use the turbo buttons.

I mean...I've played the game for thirty years without turbo. Adding buttons and unpredictability to a twitch arcade title seems like it would hurt more than help.

In any case, feel free to use whatever controller you want.

Try as I might, I can't make it past 1-2. I think that's about as good as I'm going to do this contest.

My fingers have gone stupid. Suddenly can't even get to Mr. X, much less beat him. What a shambles I've become.
