Oooooh, does a previous score count?  Or should I make a new one?   :applaud:

Can't wait to play this tonight!

Of course it doesn't count. Just play one game, post the score and you'll probably win the compo.

After a few games, I can already tell that the ---That which is odiferous and causeth plants to grow--- controls and the lousy jump mechanics will drive me crazy.

48,150.

Ha!  I almost changed my mind and picked a different game when I saw you won the last one.    :cheers:

I have some tips and strategy here.  Once you master getting the animals to run in the same direction it gets much easier.

Glad to hear it!

Also, try to get to the top at the coconut boards as quickly as possible.  You definitely don't want to lose a life on that board when you can take a bigger gamble jumping animals later for big points, and if you die then, well at least it was worth it...

I know what you mean. However, my frustration levels are in direct correlation to my time spent jumping through/around corners. I've started to do better by avoiding that, along with Del's advice. That last game, I managed a good game, plus ONE 120,000 point jump.

Thanks for posting this.  I was shocked to see I've been playing this "wrong" for years.  Building brick walls is not the path to points.

Great video too.  The production values are good and the length was just right.  I don't watch a lot of Youtube but I plan to watch some more from your channel.
