I've come to the conclusion that half of this game is pure luck. I mean, I've had some pretty good streaks going with nary an Oscar or heart or green mask in sight. And then there are some games where everything just falls on the sides for a few seconds and it's impossible to attempt to catch it all. If you play long enough you'll luck into a more profitable game. :)

As far as I know, Mercier is one of AICN's many repeat trolls, I think he's been banned a bunch of times but alas, still shows up now and again...

So it's either Mercier fervently humping Dino Kong because of his impotence at being unable to hump the Talkbacks, or it's someone having a little joke...

I just played again. SIX Oscars (I usually get 2 if I'm lucky). But then stuff started dropping on opposite ends of the screen and I lost all my lives! Grrr.

PostPosted: Fri Mar 31, 2006 1:16 pm

RS, that 3k round I just had, there was Maxium Overdrives, Extra Lives and Oscars falling all over the place. Everytime I thought I was going to die, conveniently up popped something to give me a much needed break. I was laughing because it was so ridiculous. I'm wondering if perhaps if there's a glitch in the Kongtrix today, it feels a lot easier than last time I played. Is anyone else finding that?


Or perhaps the game is a little more complex that I thought, like the amount of goodies that fall your way are on a rotating cycle of difficulty or something...?

Either way - for Mercier... there shall be no mercy.

Bwhahhahahah!

Flumm, that was going to be my next question. I was curious about the games all the high scorers have played, whether it was a matter of endurance and building up the scores or if their games just happened to be bonus heavy.

I guess I'll just keep playing and maybe I'll luck out one of these days. :)

Endurance and luck. You have to play long enough to get one of those lucky games where the bonuses are plentiful. Though I just made the leaderboard on my 3rd try, that was pure luck.

Don't you hate it when you get Green Goblins - and you don't need them! All the Monkeys keep falling down the middle or something. Or you get a Green Goblin like 5 seconds after you got the first Goblin?

Or you keep getting those extra lives that look like old fashioned cameras even when you're at your maximum 5 life capacity, so those extra lives can't add up anymore or count? You never get tehm when you need them.

Or worst of all, is when you think you're catching the Monkeys and other objects in your basket, but even though they are just falling to the inside of the outer edge, you still drop them? You end upo being over careful and paranoid about catching them.

And for God's sake, start raining Oscars will you????

I've run into that problem before. It usually only happens to me when I've been sped up by the green mask. I'll stand one place thinking I'm lined up, but then it doesn't really look like it, so I'll tap the arrow to one direction and then it looks as if I've overcompensated, so I'll quickly tap it back, the monkey (or whatever object) clearly passes through the outer edge of my basket but then falls to the wayside and I lose a life. Ouch!

EX - ACTLY MATE!!! I HATE IT!!!!!!!!! I keep seeing Dino standing over my shoulder and everyone else, all calling me a f*cking idiot for dong that. Glad I'm not the only one. Don't feel a Putz now.

So annoying isn't it?

Man, there just aren't enough Oscars too.

Keep at it Rogue. I played shitloads of times before I made it into the top 10. There ain't much difference in the actions of one player to the other really. It's just who plays long enough to get a lucky game.
