Post by mushroom » Tue Oct 30, 2018 9:23 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 ONCE AGAIN by Marilink, is Ice Climber for the NES!

Image

The rules:

-NES/Famicom version only
-No cheats, cheat devices, or passwords
-No save states, slowdowns or other emulator tools
-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 - Mountain - 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 mountain, then score. The winner gets to choose our next game.

Code: Select all

Leaderboard
1. Valigarmander - 07 - 34,560
2. mushroom - 07 - 10,720
3. Marilink - 06 - 24,480
4. smol kat - 03 - 8,660
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 picked this game because I dislike it, so, you're all welcome I guess

the ice climbers have a massive debt to pay to Masahiro Sakurai for making their lasting memory one that has nothing to do with their actual game
