One Credit Contest #24: Dr. Mario (NES)

Post by mushroom » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:37 am

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 Dr. Mario for the NES!

Image

The rules:

-NES or Famicom version only.
-Level 00 start
-HI speed
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable

Simply post your score in the following form:

Code: Select all

Name - Level - 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 two weeks from now the winner will be decided. Progress is determined by level reached, then score. The winner gets to choose our next game.

As always, simply participating will add to your overall rank! So even if you don't think you have a chance at the top, be sure to get an entry or two in!

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. Marilink (level 6) - Level 21 - 408,000
2. Valigarmander (level 8) - Level 09 - 69,300
3. mushroom (level 12) - level 04 - 14,100
4. steeze (level 1) - Level 02 - 2,400
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!

I have a physical copy. I used to play it on my NES, via my tube teevee, whilst listening to music on my brand-new CD/tape boombox.

(Wait, what the frig? I was just looking over my NES games, and apparently I have copies of 'Galaga', 'Ninja Gaiden II', 'Maniac Mansion', 'Ghostbusters', 'Kirby's Adventure' and some crap-looking NASCAR game. I have no recollection of ever owning any of those. What, did I drunk-order them all online, and then drunk-collect the mail when they each arrived?

...uhhh...uhh?)

^ The NASCAR game was probably just a cursed artifact casting an illusion of a crappy game. You should burn it, I think.

Veto. I don't want to start burning things. I might get a taste for it. Also I'm just accident-prone enough to set Milwaukee on fire by mistake.

...Bob Uecker would probably come beat me up if I burned the city down. I want to live. Life is sweet, sweet!

anyone else gonna submit a score?

maybe I should have waited to submit mine

well, as long as I've killed everyone's motivation,

Level 20 - 386,100

I'm so mad though, I was literally one yellow pill away from clearing the whole level, but it was in the top right corner and I couldn't build up to it properly without damning my own efforts :(

...it isn't that I'm intimidated, or embarrassed to be shown up. I just can't be bothered. Not for 'Dr. Mario'.

Like, 'Kung Fu' was one thing, but I don't care enough about 'Dr. Mario', "Chill" and that one cool ad notwithstanding. Sorry.

Apparently my high reverence and undying love for Dr. Mario is not as common as I initially thought
