MGLXLVI - Game 6 ~ Anteater (closes Jan-3)

The Crawlies …

MGLXLVI – Game 6 ~ Anteater

Nominated by gamers: creech, @evan04 and @Fire_Power

ROMSet 106: anteater



Game Story:
The game has four different critters which the anteater can get to score points and each of them have different point values. Ant larvaes are worth 10 points, ants are worth 100 points, worms are worth 200 points and a Queen Ant is worth 1,000 points. Also, an extra anteater is rewarded every 20,000 points. You cannot touch the worm's head, but you can munch him from behind. Worms and spiders cannot be killed unless they reach the tip of your tongue. The spider comes out at night and travels down the tongue until it reaches the tip. It can only be removed by eating a Queen Ant which clears all the critters from the screen. The days get shorter as the game progresses, consequently the spider comes out earlier. The spider is truly the nemesis of this game.

Score Submissions:
Please make a new post for each score you post, with your score as the first line of your post, along with a screen shot showing your score and initials. This game finishes Sunday Jan-3, 3am EST eg NY.

Please make sure your settings are as above. No continues are allowed when submitting a score and must be played from the beginning of the game. No pausing. No auto fire allowed. No stitching of INP files with save states. Single player only. No cheats allowed.

Games can be played on the arcade machine. You must ensure the game is at the MGL game settings for the submission to be valid.

    14.830,-

    Harder than it looks...



    BTW, does anyone know why my screenshots looks like this? Kinda streched? It looks like the right size when I am playing, so why are *some* screenshots streched, while others are not?

    Happy New Year! :)

    Nice! And you worked out how to post the emojis. That's even better. Amazing what a difference a smile or a bit of humour can make!

    I am not sure. I have issues uploading image attachments to TG, in that the focus is poor after you resize from tiny, and I don't upload via mobile phone ever. I use a 3rd party site for image storage to avoid any issues and get a sharp image by posting a link at TG. I am not suggesting you do the same, just why I don't upload to TG. It also saves space on the TG server and your account if you don't.

    Final Results ...



    One gamer mentioned this game is not as easy as it looks. And he was dead right. There are a great number of dangers to think about and learn in this deadly game of eat smart or be beaten. Spiders and Queen Ants make for a clever twist to the challenge. DaLar, RMacauley, Redelf, Wirre.the.man, Ivanstorm1973, ZNC, Fire_Power, Terencew, Pessimeister, Charlie Milne and Vikleroy all played great on this tongue twister for 2nd place to 12th place respectively. Great stuff.

    Congratulations to Patrick Stanley for winning Game 6, with a top score of 208,030 points. He proved to be the best at eating the ants and dealing with those pesky spiders. Nice work!



    Dangerous Dungeons and Bagman are the current open games to keep all gamers busy and determined. Then 2 more games will be launched next week, heading into the final stages of MGLXLVI. It’s GAME ON as best as you can!
