Alright, I'll get the ball rolling. Puny score, I can already tell this ones gonna take more practice. I haven't played Frogger in long while and she is a fickle beast.

Heeeere we go!

EDIT- I suppose it would help to play with the right settings. I set my dip switches to 5 lives, but didn't realize you needed to reset the game for it to take effect, haha.

Till you forget to let go of the joystick when you die and it jumps forward with the new life - only to jump right on a car !

Why, this is such a nice, relaxing little game  ;D

It could be worse. Imagine having to cough up money for every game...

That's true. The games just seems kinda finicky. I think I'll sit this one out. I cant seem to get close to you guys scores and I'm gonna wind up snapping my joystick...

Good luck everybody. Have fun.

Post up what you got, then. There are probably others who don't post because they're not in first or second, too. But it'd be good to see the full range of scores. There may end up being good competition for 3rd or 4th! (And if some of the stronger players on this board show up, we'll all be playing for those spots! Haha)

Yeah maybe I will, highest I got was like 13800 or something. I hate to give up I was just getting really frustrated, seemed like I was missing jumps I was supposed to make and waiting for logs that were supposed to show but never did. I might give it another shot if I have the time. Just not enjoying it as much as the last game.

13,800 points means that you have gotten to level 4. That's not far away from the top scores. It has taken me a long time to beat level 4, and most of the time I still don't make it. It takes just one good run to beat it, by that time you will have 15k+ points. And then you will get slaughtered in level 5  ;D

So, just to give you some perspective, here is the original compo's scoreboard.

CrazyKongFan   42,740

jasonbar           33,880

DrFrag             27,580

geocab            11,640

Oh, and the MARP high score is at a bit more than 1 million.

Great scores.  I know i've tapped out, so i'm guessing you've got it.  Although shaolin is getting up there.

The compo has still some hours left, but I think shaolindrunkard may start thinking about the next game.

Yes....(please) haha

Pick whatever you want, but the restart was to make the "hits" eligible again.

Well, if were going for the hits, hows about some Tapper? If you guys don't like that I have other suggestions...

It's entirely your choice, friend. Popular, unpopular, it's completely up to you.

But tapper is a great game, for sure.

Of course, I sometimes cant figure out the time difference thing. I'm in the USA eastern time. When I type in Midnight pacific time it says it was at 3 A.M. eastern time. Which already happened.
