One Credit Contest #18: Wario's Woods (NES)

Post by mushroom » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:43 pm

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 S1x, is Wario's Woods for the NES!

Image

The rules:

-NES/Famicom version only
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-Round play
-Type A game
-Start from round one
-No continuing
-US or Japanese version is acceptable
-Real hardware or emulation are both acceptable

Simply post your score in the following form:

Code: Select all

Name - Stage # - # Credits, # Gold
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 measured by the stage reached, then by credits + gold as a tiebreaker (the bottom value in the box labeled "GOLD" is your total collected gold, credits are CR at the bottom right). Further tiebreaking will be decided on a case-by-case basis (probably won't bother unless the top two are tied exactly). The winner gets to choose our next game.

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. Marilink - Stage 65 - 9 Credits, 18 gold
2. S1x - Stage 60 - 9 credits, 26 Gold
3. mushroom - Stage 27 - 4 Credits, 16 gold
4. Valigarmander - Stage 25 - 3 Credits, 21 Gold
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!

FYI had to update the scoring rules a little bit because I didn't realize gold gave you credits. So we need to specify credits + gold when giving the score. It's weird and clunky but it's the only thing approaching score that this game has.

mushroom - Stage 27 - 4, 16

What constitutes a "one credit" run of this game? If I die one time, is that my one credit?

This game is great, though, man. The movement options and potential techniques are a lot deeper than you might think at first.

Excellent choice. I'll put the thread together sometime this evening.
