Ribbit King: ENDERED

HAHAHAHA! Take that, end of game opponent! Managed to beat Sparky and Whoosh 2, quite easily as well. I was 500 points ahead on the last round, which was a comfortable lead. Unfortunately, he then got a Frog-in-One, and picked up a couple of hundred points en route too, putting me about 1200 points behind. You get 1500 for a Frog-in-One, and I’d have got 900 points (or less) if I didn’t. But I managed a Frog-in-One too, and whipped …

Ribbit King

It started off well. I raced through my opponents, defeating all of them bar one first go and by miles. I did lose to Princess Fish-on-Head once, but only because she got the bonus points and it took her score to 5210 – when mine was 5206. Grr. And then, on the last opponent (Or at least, I assume Sparky and Whoosh 2 are my last opponents, since they have the item I need and I’ve played everyone else), I …

Ribbit King

Made a largish dent into the “Second Mission” this evening. Is it me, or have the opponents become really retarded now? On one level, Sir Waddlelot tried the same shot seven times, each time going out of bounds, and each time losing 50 points. He failed to finish that round at all, and ended up with fewer points than he started the round with. The panda did a similar thing on another level too, allowing me to storm ahead and …

Ribbit King

Stupid. STUPID STUPID. I beat the final opponent. He was actually pretty hard, since he knew all the “paths” to getting huge bonuses and racking up his multiplier. And he never made any mistakes either. Luckily, I knew a few paths too, and thrashed him in the final round. Hurrah! Then the end of game sequence kicks in, but I had to answer the door. When I got back, it was just finishing. And then the game autosaved. And now …

Ribbit King

I did much better today – not losing a single match. Walked all over Sir Waddlelot, Girl-With-Fish-on-Head, Cosmos the Alien, Lunk 2 and everyone else I played. Excellent. When I ran out of opponents, [spoiler] appeared, and told me he was to be my final opponent! Woo!

Ribbit King

Although I’ve played this before, I’ve not really touched it in single player mode. So I’ve decided this is my next game to complete. Faced three opponents this evening: Lunk 2 (who beat me), some ghosty thing with a “Play Box Advance” (who was easy to beat), and an alien. Although the alien was winning by some 900 points after the second round, I pulled back 200 or so in the third, and overtook him on the fourth. The final …

Mahjongg Taikai

I am rubbish at this. FACT. I played another few games, and managed third place in one, and last in the other two. Am I missing something? I know you get more points for certain “tricks” and sets of tricks than others, but even getting a whopping 1-2-3 Bamboo, 4-5-6 Bamboo, 7-8-9 Bamboo, 5-5-5 Bamboo and a pair of Red Dragons wasn’t enough to whip the others. Stupid.

NeoTiles

Another Pocket PC game, this. It’s a poor man’s Shanghai really, but passes the time. Mind you, I actually have Shanghai on my iPaq too, so I don’t really know what I’m playing NeoTiles for…

Sim City 2000

I’ve reinstalled a load of games on my iPaq now I have a new SD card to store them on, and one of them is Sim City 2000. Of course, now I remember why I wasn’t sad to see it go last time when I needed the card for my camera. It’s slow, and the screen isn’t big enough to work with properly. It might have been nicer if you could play landscape instead of portrait, but you can’t. Or …

Mahjongg Taikai

I am really very crap at this. I hope I find some difficulty settings somewhere before I stab my DS. I’ve just played four “rounds”, each of 5 or 6 “hands”, and got progressively worse as I went on. In the first round, I narrowly missed first place, the next I came second again, then third and finally fourth. I need 1337 Mahjongg sk1llz, I think. W0rd, y0.

Mahjongg Taikai

And I thought the Famicom Mahjongg game was hard. This one is the hardest Mahjongg game evar. But it has nice graphics and excellent music (or rather, Muzak) throughout. Sticking with it, even though I can’t read the options as they’re almost all in Kanji and I only know Hiragana and Katakana. Tch, eh?

Mr Driller: Drill Spirits: CULMINATED!

Oh my. I’m on fire or something today! My first attempt at 2000m (which it seems, is the last level – thankfully!) got me as far as 1450m. Undeterred, I was at 1700m on my next go, with 5 lives left. Sadly, by 1900 I was down to 2 lives. Then, at 1960 I was on my last life – so I just threw caution to the wind and went for it. And it worked! I’ve now unlocked another character, …

Mr Driller: Drill Spirits

Sigh. I got up to 1800m today, and bought more lives from the shop. I know I’d made some avoidable errors on the run, so surely if I take more care, and with three more lives, I should finally be able to do it, yes? No. 1077m. Stupid, stupid game. It actually made me cry. At least I managed the 500ton level on Pressure Driller. It just isn’t the same though.

Mr Driller: Drill Spirits

I’m really getting annoyed with this now, since I’m getting worse and not better. I could only manage 957m on the 2000m run today. That’s less than halfway there. Rubbish. I think I shall be writing a letter. Dear Namco,Mr Driller: Drill Spirits is impossible, despite what Steve Jackson says. You suXX0r.Loev, deKay.
