Season 19 Round 15 - Bucky O'Hare


Recommended Posts

Last round of Season 19!  Every manual scan I found online was terrible.  I linked one of them below, but it's difficult to read.  The controls, however, are pretty straightforward:  A to jump and B to shoot.  Each character has their own special ability that can be charged by holding B and used by subsequently releasing B.  New characters can be unlocked by completing the various stages.  Switch between characters with the select button.  Unless you exceed the default high score of 50,000 the score disappears quickly after your last life so be sure to take note.

Bucky O'Hare -- 296,700



Hot damn!  I made it!  It only cost a bit of sanity and a small fortune added to the swear jar.


This game is a mixed bag for me.  So many great ideas, that it always seemed to find a way to make me smile and say “oh.. that was neat.”  Heck, it even changes the genre a bit for the final level. It’s like they managed to include every nifty NES trick ever done, as some point.

However… many parts just seemed overly difficult for the wrong reasons.  Harsh collision detection on the 1 hit death parts, and some pretty cruel platforming sections.  

Oh well, glad I can check it off my “to finish” list, and will add it to my “would love to see it revisited in a modern game” list.


Oh… there doesn’t seem to be a way to view the score after it’s finished, unless my brain was fried at that point and I was just missing it.

Great score.  Congrats.  ?

Thanks. I got three no crash bonuses and reached scene 14. I was hoping to possibly beat the game and play into second loop for a higher score but it didn't happen. Those last few stages are really hard.

“I’m so bad.”  You said it, buddy. 


Bump ‘n’ Jump - 18,360



Donkey Kong - 53,000



Donkey Kong Jr. - 138,800



Palamedes - 148,6200D4156F0-53D9-4A60-8784-0F4E9F3B40FE.thumb.jpeg.7370dca81d5d8c53b7e92a0b164d016b.jpeg


Q*bert - 32,000

Forgot to pause to grab a pic, so I rounded down from what I remembered. 


I had a lot of fun this season, especially with Duck Tales and getting the different endings. The arcade games were fun, but I definitely didn’t take advantage of the seven months we had to keep improving. Great job to everyone this season!
