@Corneel Last day! That has flown by. Think I’ve posted all my progress (or lack there of 😉) over on Adult Switch Gamers. If I manage to squeeze in any more runs, it’ll likely by on DK3 which has emerged as my favourite game of these challenges.

@Lroy Certainly has flown by again. You made some good progress with Donkey Kong 3 and the Tengai score is not bad, you even beat @CW13 by 100 points! I love how we invaded the Donkey Kong 3 top 100 leaderboard with 6 entries.

My final score for Tengai (433,300):

And got to stage 5 on Metal Slug 2:

@corneel You cheeky so and so. I’m well aware my performance in TENGAI was less than stellar, no need to soften the blow, lol!

Yeah DK3 was so much fun, I actually ended up just playing that over trying to get further in METAL SLUG 2 or VULCAN VENTURE. But enjoyed all the games and will be playing them out of competition for sure.

@GFoyle Wow. Just, wow.

Thanks, but I had a bit of head start as we had Tengai 1 week challenge early 2018 and I probably put 20 hours in that week to the game (slightly different rules with the 2 continues). I haven't played the game much between these challenges, but a lot of the things came back quite quickly when this challenge started. If there would be better tools for practicing in the Switch version, I would practice to get that 1cc (first loop), but now it would take too long to get consistent with the stages from 4 onward.

Great game though, one of my favourites from Psikyo definitely.

Final round results time! Again thanks to all of you for participating during the last 5 months. Amazing to see we have invaded the Donkey Kong 3 leaderboards with at least 6 entries! Now it's time for a holiday brake. Let's play some Super Mario Maker 2 and then in about a month and a half we will start season 2!

Oh, crap! I keep thinking the deadline is about half of the month... I could have improved my DK3 score, and yet I got a much worse rank than I expected.

Congrats to all the others! It's been fun!

I couldn't agree more. Thanks for making it possible and I can't wait for next season!

This was a lot of fun. DK3 was great, TENGAI is fun as always and Vulcan Venture was a great discovery. I couldn’t get around to MS2, so something to look forward to later on. Well played everyone and thanks for doing a splendid job organizing all this @Corneel . Cheers! 🍻🥂🍾

@corneel I know the season's over, but are we still posting scores if we improve on any of the old games? I forget. Thanks!

With summer break coming to an end, it is now time to prepare for the next season of arcade challenges. But like always, I will need your help to set it up.

We will keep roughly the same format like last season, only with three games instead of four. So each month we'll have three games to compete in.

Together with the help of @GFoyle we have set up a pretty nice selection of games to choose from for the first round. I hope you like the games we picked and put up for vote. Enough talk, now let's vote for the next set of games and get the Arcade Challenges Season 2 started!

@Corneel really excited for the new challenges! Let me know on Discord if you need any kind of help. Let's also share the news on Twitter once everything is set!

The original fire has died and gone, but the riot inside moves on.
