I only know of it through online gaming, and we all do it to a degree on many games. If there is a timer, leech all you like. It's a blurred line, for sure.

    " What is "LEECHING?" - Information and Guide
    Term - "Leeching" is also referred to as "hunting" and "point scrabbing"
    by both Twin Galaxies and members of the gaming Community
    "A means by which a player accumulates additional points in game while engaging in activities that do not contribute to progressing to the next stage, screen or level, and while such activities are engaged, a player is not inhibited to progressing to the next stage, screen or level during commission of said activities. In general, a player should always be making a meaningful or conservative attempt towards progression within the generally accepted intended spirit and direction of the game."

    The rules that follow governing leeching/hunting/point-scrabbing shall apply universally to all arcade, home console, emulation, hand-held, mobile and PC-based gameplay efforts."

    Yes, the line is fuzzy and that was part of my point. A single generic statement like "Point pressing can only be done against a timer" doesn't work for all games. That's why there are exceptions allowed for in the TG leeching guidelines (like for Asteroids saucer hunting, which had a long discussion back in the early 2000's about whether saucer hunting should be considered leeching or not...I actually leaned to the side that it was). And, yes, I'm pretty sure there is a "no saucer hunting" track.

    Indeed!
    So this may get a "no fishing" track, heh :D

    Sorry for the small screenshot. I'm sneaking a game in at work (shhhh)

    Also this game has taken me a while to even get anywhere on it. Don't give up out there, people.

    Performed and recorded on WolfMAME v.181 (INP attached)
