Snap Jack by Universal



----------------------------------------------------

ROMset: snapjack.zip

----------------------------------------------------

Default settings:
Difficulty: easy
Lives: 3
unused1?: On
unused2?: On

----------------------------------------------------

- One credit only!

- No continues or adding credits!

- No MAME cheats!

- Last day is Sunday January 15th (11:59:59pm Pacific Daylight Time), 2012.
 
- High score wins.

- No savestates, savestate practices, etc. during the round.

- MAME INP recordings are encouraged but optional.

- A screenshot is required to enter a score (press F12 to save screenshot showing your final score) or take a photo of the game screen.

- If you're a MARP competitor on this title, keep in mind this is just a friendly competition among forum members, so maybe you shouldn't enter. However, if you're a forum member and this is a game you're good at and nobody knows about it, this is your time to shine!

- Even if you don't have a competitive score or if you don't *think* that you have a competitive score, please post it anyway to keep the thread fun & to give everybody a good sense of score ranges.

- Please make sure your scores are from games that take place during the competition period (no posting your best score from last year, etc.).

- Use of autofire or other non-standard hacks within MAME or your PC's OS are not allowed.  No program or other person or entity of any sort may manipulate your controls during your game.  Coaching & back-seat driving is fine as long as the party doesn't directly influence the game or controls.

- If you can beat any of the high scores from the previous competitions, you can submit your score to the BYOAC High Game Scoreboard.

Best of luck!
Cheers Eric

Weird weird weird game. Although this is on my cab and I have indeed played every game on it (all 2250 or so), I have no recollection of this one--I think I wouldn't have revisited it had it not been for this competition. That's one great aspect of these competitions!


Unlike scramble & other such fly-through-the-caves games, you cannot crash into the ground, as you're rolling on it. That takes some getting used to.

12,790 after a few games. I'll post an image later.

Note that hiscore.dat does indeed work on this game.

Thanks,
-Jason

The hardest bit I'm finding is watching the ground so you know you are going to go up (and the low bouncing barrels)

They put too much in this game. Definitely not a keeper.

Especially when you get to the sodding bridges, that's just evil. I'm stuck getting around 12,000 too.

Upped my score to 29,550.   I'll post a pic later.    There seems to be a fine line between getting letters for an extra car or eat more squids for points.   I have been going all out for letters in the first round and all squids in the remaining rounds.

Well done Kixfan :applaud:, with Jason runner up.

Looks like we were all too busy or fed up with this game to give it much of a go (I was too busy -still am :-\)

Over to you Kixfan for the next game.
Cheers Eric
