I am starting a HS high score gaming competition where we play games made on Hopscotch and try to beat each other’s high scores. You can earn badges such as highest win streak, highest (weighted) score, best total score, most wins, and game picker and get awarded ePoints to boost your next score. Games that are chosen will mainly be from the featured page and by suggestion.
|Badge||Name & Description||ePoints Awarded|
|Best Total Score||10|
|Highest Win Streak||10|
|Game Selector*||2 per round|
|High Roller*||10 per game|
|Most Wins Overall||3 per round|
|2nd Most Wins||2 per round|
|3rd Most Wins||1 per round|
* The highest score badge () represents the highest weighted score out of any one game. The Game Selector badge () represents most nominated games played. High Roller () means that you beat one of my high scores. “Per round” means that you get awarded every round you keep it.
Scores of games are weighted:
Details on Score Weighting
This means that with the same skill level in each game, each score will be about the same. For example, scoring 5 in Galactic Robots from Minigames 2 and scoring 1000 in “Keep it Up” by Hopscotcher would yield the same result, a score of 30 (just an example). This is based off of skill and time required to play a game to make badges like “Best Total Score” less reliant off of a fast-scoring game.
A table of scores in various games with the same amount of skill put in:
|Four Leaf Panic||25||500||20|
|Lasers in Space||56||504||9|
|Score Doubler||20||Doubles Your Score for the game|
|Knockout||40||Elimintate opponent of choice|
|Reroll||20||Changes game to one from a given list|
|Close||50||Closes the session, no more submissions|
|Summon||35||I play the game once for you|
|Discobot||10||Adjust your score multiplier*|
|Extension||15||Can compete until 48 hours after deadline|
* The Discobot item uses discobot to determine your new multiplier. It will roll between a 5 and a 20, 5 being lose 50% of your score, 20 being double.
Coming from my GT
You will have as much time as I choose for each game. It could be anywhere from two days to two weeks! When I release the game, you may start. First session starts tomorrow. When you achieve any high score, remix the project and post the link here. Only your best score will be checked at the end of each session. 1st is awarded 5 ePoints, 2nd is awarded 3, and 3rd is awarded 1. ePoints can be spent in the shop.
A spreadsheet of player statistics can be found here.
Note to self: Make this a wiki post on March 16th to continue editing it
