Hello and welcome to the One Credit Contest!! It's a competition to see who can get the farthest in a game on a single credit. Our game this week, chosen by Marilink, is Balloon Fight for the NES! Specifically, Balloon Trip mode.

Image

The rules:

-NES/Famicom version only
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-Balloon Trip mode
-US or Japanese version is acceptable
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable
-Autofire is allowed

Simply post your score in the following form:

Code: Select all

Name - Score
A screen shot is optional. Just don't cheat. There's not a lot at stake here :P

I will maintain a leader board in this post, and about one week from now the winner will be decided. Progress is determined by score cuz that's all there is! The winner gets to choose our next game.

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. Marilink - 81,610
2. Valigarmander - 28,960
3. mushroom - 14,910
You may post new scores as often as you wish. Have fun!

P.S. If anyone has any trouble obtaining or running the game, please let me know! I will be glad to help!

maybe you guys just need to git good

In the spirit of sp00k, I was wondering about the idea of us all doing a Luigi's Mansion run and seeing who gets the most money. It's pretty hard to die in that game, but the one credit would still apply. Not too long of a game, but certainly longer than we've done for this challenge in the past. idk, what do you guys think?

availability on that game is significantly more limited than older stuff, and yeah the game's a little long for this kinda deal.
