Column Arcade Mode (HIGHSCORE NOT SPEEDRUN)

I was using the arcade mode thing down the bottom of the episode lists as practice for the column speedruns, and realised that we could use that built-in (though pretty badly utilised) system as another form of competition.

Below are the scores:



Column a-0
cooperverdon - 1823.666 (download/file.php?id=3778&mode=view)
shomman - 1749.100 (http://i.imgur.com/JY1dHR5.png)
XandoToaster - 1517.283 (http://i.imgur.com/BsXQdXI.png)

Column a-1
XandoToaster - 518.600 (http://i.imgur.com/uPmGzKs)

Column a-2
XandoToaster - 568.000 (http://i.imgur.com/dwVqFaJ)

Column a-3
XandoToaster - 288.383 (http://i.imgur.com/aBi6AMT)

Column a-4

Just screenshot the time you get at the end of the Arcade mode run :)

But that time depends of amount of gold you have taken during the run. Isn't it?

Yeah that accounts for the the gold you take, so its not the same. We could I guess compete to get the highest final score, but that's a different story, more like "column highscore".

Yes, this is not speedrunning at all, it is highscoring. I wasn't suggesting this as a new way to do the speedrunning, rather a different competition. Apologies for the confusion.

Column 1 Remaining Time: 518.600

By the way, time you got at the end, doesn't represent how fast you actually were. Cause it depends of how much gold pieces you have taken during your run, right? So, for example, if we had almost same run in one level, but you somehow managed to grab one gold piece, you will have two seconds more time left, than I have. Just want to say that if you want to post some column records, you will definitely need some stopwatch tool. xD
Good job! I know how exhausting can be to get the column run! :D

Yeah oxy - it isn't a speedrun competition. It's arcade mode. AGD for best score.

ugh

I did the 30 column. I got 288.383. Since there isn't really a point of reference, I'll just tell all of you that my run was terrible. It's been so long since I've played a lot of these levels. I think I lost about 400 seconds on 35-4.

But, at least I did it, which is more than any of you can say. :P

I did the 40s. It took me 3 tries, but I finally got it done. 48-4 and 49-1 were the hardest, but I think that 49-1 was mostly difficult because I had so little time left after 48-4.

Final Time: 412.216
Victory screen

Is any one else ever gonna compete with me? I know I keep complaining about how hard it is, but these are a lot of fun!

1247 on column 0. i lost a lot of time on 5-3, but I thought i'd beat you with 9-4 toast. Apparently not.

Good try shom, but you'll have to do better than that :P

In the meantime, I did the 50s too.

Final time: 460.450
50s proof

That's half of the columns done now. Has anybody bothered doing all of these before? I know you don't get anything for it, but did anybody put the time in during the early days of Nv2?

EDIT: Also did the 60s. I find it very annoying when I struggle on levels that I have/had 0th on.
Final Time: 194.250

Final Time: 393.133
70s Proof

EDIT: Did the 80s later in the day
Final Time: 378.983
80s Proof

EDIT 2: Also did the 90s
Final Time: 194.933
90s Proof

EDIT 3: Re-did the 80s and got a much better time
Final Time: 690.700
80s Proof

Good stuff toaster, you've almost done all the columns.

I spent a while going over the levels i fucked up the most last time, and got a new score. Still behind cooper though.

Good job with that shom. Looks like I'll have to put in some work to take back that column.
In the meantime, I did the a column. It took two attempts, but that was mostly because I haven't played a lot of the levels in a long time.

Final Time: 739.133
a proof

Just one more to go! :D

Updated. You're smashing through these. b column will be the hardest I reckon, if only because of b7-4.

It took me 4 tries, but I did the b column. It is, without a doubt, the hardest column in the game. Most columns seem to have 1, or maybe 2, relatively hard levels. But the b column has at least 5 that will murder you if you're not ready for them.

Final Time: 587.600

b Proof

So that's all the columns. Does this mean I've won N now? Am I the Column Run King? I don't care what the answer is, I'm adding that to my sig now.

Nice work dude. I think, given the current state of these, boards, that's fair. Though maybe you should try and take column 0 back first :)

I'm working on improving my column 0 run, and this was my first attempt. I'll probably post a few more improvements over the next few weeks.

My time this attempt was 1517.283
