Chuck up a screenshot for your score then Duck - I'll add your name to the leaderboard and we'll move on to the next game after that. Thumbs Up!

Not amazing but good enough for a top three finish is good enough for me Smile

A podium placing gets you points in the overall rankings, so well done! Grin

You'll know it by the title of the thread, but here is the LIVE and IN LIVING COLOUR reveal of the next high score challenge game.

Oof, this one's going to be painful. I reckon anyone who has the perseverance to play the damn thing might end up placing!

I'll bash out an effort soon enough. I think the worst thing about Ice Climber is how janky the platforming feels. It's easily the worst jumping mechanics I've encountered in any of Nintendo's NES efforts, at least. I find myself clipping through the edge of platforms and things like that. Mad

EDIT: Okay, here's my first attempt. I found the biggest point scorer to be actually clearing the mountain and grabbing the pterodactyl at the end, but bugger me, what a slog this game is!

Oh boy. Right. I'll get ready to give this a go. I love the Ice Climbers, but I hate Ice Climber. I second the terrible jumping opinion; it's like they went out of their way to make this unenjoyable.

I'd love to play a revamped version of this game with satisfying jumping controls. I can't blame Nintendo for not unearthing this one from the vault yet though!

Well, this was my first go on the Switch version... and that is a remarkably tight margin:

Blew myself away with this attempt, 3 successful Pterodactyl grabs gave me a huge boost though. Could definitely enjoy an updated version of this.

... Aww!

I'll give it another crack soon enough. Anybody else wanting to give ol' Ice Climber a go? I honestly couldn't blame you for not bothering, mind. Laughing

Going to give it a go the morra but from that 2 player session we had you will remember I was quite bad at it.

EDIT: So here's my terrible score not giving up just yet so hopefully I'll come back with a better attempt.

Doh - I was already to drop this bombshell, but Murphy's some kind of ice-climbing genius


Digression: At some point I've got to try and "complete" this, by getting through all 32 mountains. After about 07 or 08 they become daunting as all heck, mind...

Double Digression: Why are my screenshots at a different ratio to everyone else's?

It's easier in one-player mode. The second player is a hindrance more than anything!

For some reason, Twitter uses a file format called jpg.large which nobody asked for ever, but you can get the original .jpg file by removing large from the link.

The way they've done it is apparently really bizarre: they've just gone out into the game world and farmed bundles and bundles of rupees, then released the save state. You can even die and go back to having nowt, apparently. Eh?

I might have to concede defeat with that score, I've had too many frustrating deaths trying to beat it.

I think I'll be throwing in the towel too - I'm also getting frustrated playing this now! Jimmers has served up a cracker of a score that I don't think I've got a chance of beating! Top work, my dude.

I'll wait until Sunday before cycling to the next game, if folks are happy with that?

As for the Zelda romhack mode thing, that is incredibly weird if that's the case, Balla. It also seems to defeat the purpose of playing Zelda, too. Although I did read a fair comment which speculated that this might be them trying to evoke feeling of BotW and being able to go anywhere and tackle it in any order from the word go.

Don't worry y'all - when it's Dr. Mario week I may as well not try - that game doesn't work in my brain! Apparently I can climb ice, but that's it!
