+asponge Posted June 21, 2020 Share Posted June 21, 2020 We're going to do something a little different this round. In addition to the normal high score competition I've added a low score competition as well. Thanks to fakecortex for the suggestion, selecting the game and putting the rules together. Players will be awarded separate season points for the LSC according to the standard scoring chart, e.g. 25 for 1st, 20 for 2nd, etc. To submit a score for the LSC, play mountains 01 through 04. After 04 is complete, wait until the score is totaled, pause the game and take a screenshot. When posting scores please indicate whether it's for the HSC or LSC. Finally, because this is a two in one, I'm going to extend the score post deadline by one week. HSC Game Rules: Manual No Continues, Reset the console to restart at mountain 01 after each attempt. LSC Game Rules: Complete mountains 01 through 04, pause after the score is totaled and take a screenshot. No Continues Score Post Deadline: Sunday July 12 at 11:59 PM CDT.
