First time I have entered one of these...  I have never played BTIME much, but I like it..  my score sucks though...   I am playing with a keyboard currently, so I'm hoping that's holding me back.

8400
Welcome! I started these on a whim once, and it's been an awesome way to find what you really enjoy playing! (And what you don't, haha.)

For those with joystick complaints...

Most joysticks are 4/8-way convertible. However, just because you rotate the restrictor plate to 4-way, doesn't necessarily mean it's actually 4-way. You may have to bend the switch levers slightly away from the actuator so two switches are not engaged at once. I had to do this with my JLW in my ZD-Invader for this game. Yes, you have to be standing in the right spot to get on/off a ladder, but it's not all that hard to pull off with a properly adjusted joystick.

Hope this helps some of you...

If you want some helpful suggestions, check out the previous Burgertime competition here

Jeesus, and I thought the goal was to clear the screens and go to the next one.  Doh!  Seems too much like work though, for me anyway

I think the important thing to take away from the videos is that you may want to use peppers offensively to bunch bad guys.  Someone could take the lead right now and only have to complete 2 screens.

Totally agree and totally get why people would play it that way.  Just not for me. For sure doing so, I'd progress in score (granted that's the point) but it's not my style of progression.  I'm not taking anything away from Burgertime by saying that, it's still a great game in my eyes.

used to love playing the colecovision version. I'll have to google to see if this trapping trick existed on that version too.

I know it is no record braking score, but 12600 is a personal best.

Luring the eaties onto burger parts and running away is the scoring factor in the game.

Gave the game a second chance using a keyboard. Figured out how to herd the enemies, giving them a ride on the burger ingedredients is a good way to score. Got to 4th level. Now that I know what I' doing, the game is not so bad, but I still die because of the controls/the precision involved. I just love fleeing down a ladder, trying to get off, being a pixel too high and frantically hammering the keyboard.

45,800.

I agree, Yama. That Btime takes some getting used to before it gets good. I hated it at first, and only played it because my sister loved it. But it's like a fungus, it grows on you.

Wish I had more time to play this week, though. And I suppose kixfan isn't going to smack us all down, haha. Not like we don't all know he's got mad skillz.

Welp, that's the game!  Unless a better idea is had, we can keep with the 3rd place scorer choosing the next game. 

So you're up, Yama!

Since acvieluf doesn't want you to know how the competition went scorewise, I shall foil his evil plan.

The final scores.



Mr. opt2not expressed his desire to demonstrate his aptitude in playing his favorite game, I shall grant his wish.

The next game will be Robotron 2084.

Do we get a 10x score multiplier?

Build one this week, play the game next week  ;D

Or use a PC and a gamepad. My 2 stick cab is out of order, so I'm going to use an XBox 360 controller and my PC.
