I'm a Tetris addict, too. Have you ever played Pokemon Puzzle League (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004U1QX?ie=UTF8&tag=helpingmomsco-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00004U1QX)on the old Nintendo 64? Before the kids were born I literally stayed up almost all night one night playing it because I was so addicted. It's very Tetris-like.

Did you notice that if you have the high score in a game, you get a little icon in the top right of your posts? I didn't notice it until this morning.

Well it was fun for me while it lasted, but now I see we have to post at least once a day to be eligible to play. :( I will likely never post once a day (not the social, posting kind of person), so guess I'm out.

But you just posted already for the day!

It should only be a post a day on the days that you play. If it doesn't work that way, I'll change it back. So it doesn't have to be like 30 posts a month.

Tricia - I love the games! How cool to combine computer games and SR!!!

I will have to remind myself to keep posting on the forum once a day - no biggie - that's easy to do!

Sorry you have to enforce this post-a-day rule, but I understand why you are doing it and fully support ya!!! :sunshine2:

LOL. Yes, for today I did post, but I rarely ever post and certainly won't have something worth posting every day just to play. Hope that made sense. :) I don't want to make random pointless posts every day just to play the games. I'm okay with the rule, though.

I need a faster computer and a mouse to play these games. I have an ancient laptop and I use the keypad mouse thing. My husband has an extra mouse at the office he's bringing home for me so I can waste my time more efficiently. Stupid full-time job that keeps me off the cool internet stuff all day!
Thanks again for the lovely games,

Or teach lessons. I haven't gotten beyond level 6, and don't even think I've hit 300 points. And I'm playing, um, quite a bit. Losing sleep and all that. :p

Lessons? Strategy that works best for you?

I finally got the high score in Space Invaders yesterday. I'm sad to say, I was playing for about 40 minutes to get that score. My eyes were watering, my thumb was cramping.. my five year old kept asking me for a drink..

But I fought through. And got it. Now I'm done with it, until It's time to reclaim my championship.

(the five year old is ok. He got a drink).

I just have to think there's a trick to it, beyond paying it for an hour.

I really need to stop playing Tiles - I just beat my High score again. And I couldn't go any further - I completed all 15 levels and when I went to go on to level 16 - nothing happened.

I'm leaving now - I have to go clean - my daughter brought all her stuff home from school and it has exploded in my kitchen and I haven't showered yet and I have to go buy a birthday present and on and on and on and on. And I have to fold laundry.

So - Tricia forget the recommendation from above - just please remove all games! So I can be a productive member of society!! :rotfl:

Unfortunately for me the 3 times I played, it would have put me in the top ten. Oh well. It only happens for pacman though.

I hope you can find your banner.

I have a hard time with pacman/arrows.

I blame it on the lack of a joystick. i remember as a kid making it FAR into the game. Perhaps I'm just older now, and slower. But, Perhaps a joystick would fix all the problems in the world.

Fruit Smasher Questions:

1. The leaves that float by... are you suppose to click on them?

2. Is one fruit worth more than another or are they all equal?

3. Does anyone else hate when the big bonus banana gets in the way of your next click?

Good question about the leaves! I would love to know too.
I think all fruit are equal.
And YES! I hate when the Big Bonus Banana (I am not even going to go there!:rotfl: :rotfl: ) gets in the way!.

fruitsmashers is a tricky one. You need to line up the same fruit in either 3's, 4's or 5's. the more in the group the more points. Problem is I cannot figure out how the person with the high score got it. I think I am doing really well when I play and then my score comes up and it stinks in comparison!!

Anyone else have any ideas/hints.

I have the same problem as you. I think I'm doing great and then the score isn't even mildly good in comparison. Still fun to try and beat it though!

Okay, I really MUST be dense. I can't even get anything to move!! When I click on two fruit, they move back and forth and then go back to where they started!

They have to make a match (a line of at least 3 of the same fruit) or they won't stay.

You can just click on one fruit and move it in order to create a line of at least three of the same fruit in order to score.

omg that fruit game, it is evil. I was up until THREE this morning, people, three! You east coasters were already getting up!

And the worst? i was craving fruit in the WORST way while playing it!

At least when I play Tiles all I get is dizzy. :p

So now that I'm addicted to fruit smash, I simply have to understand what the big banana is all about. Do I click on it? Do I focus on getting something matched elsewhere and THAT match would yield the bonus?

And how does one successfully catch that leaf? I think doing these games on a laptop is making it harder for me.

faithhope

My Fruit Smash ideas:

I'm as clueless as most of you when it comes to this game, but here are my guesses...

THE BIG BONUS BANANA - You don't need to click on it. It is there to let you know you will get a 1000 point bonus at the end of the game... and to distract you... don't let it distract you...keep clicking at the little fruit and keep making rows and column chains of fruit..

THE LEAF - leaves seem to come when you get rid of many fruit. I'm guessing that you get more points when you make longer rows and columns... I seem to see the leaf either when I make a chain of 5 or make many chains of 3...
You do NOT need to click on the leaf...it is there to distract you... keep clicking fruit...
The leaf float to the lower left corner where there is a bonus meter of some kind...when that meter fills up (full of leaves??) you will get a 10,000 point during the game bonus...this bonus will probably take you through a level or two, thus giving you more time...

My tips - try to make more 4 and 5 fruit chains, but take the 3 in a row fruits too... that is, don't stop clicking to look for 5 in a row... but if moving a piece of fruit gives you a choice... go for the longer chain. You need to fill the 10,000 point bonus meter if you are to have any luck at making a new personal high score.

Faith
who is now going back to practice smashing fruit some more.

06-18-2007, 06:49 PM
Thank you, faithhope! I started getting the feeling that they were there to distract as well, and you saying that you think it too makes me happy (we wall want to hear we might be right). :)

06-18-2007, 06:53 PM
Oh I think you were SO right. Just went higher in score than I remember going, all because I ignored those pesky distractions!

Help! I keep getting this error every time I play Pacman. When it happened last night, I thought maybe it was because I hadn't made enough posts that day. But, I know for sure that I posted on a few threads today. So, I don't know what is wrong. Is anyone else having a problem with Pacman?

mySQL query error: SELECT * FROM games_session WHERE sessid= LIMIT 1

Help!! I am still getting this error. I have no idea what the problem is but it is really affecting my arcade rankings. I just put in a monster Moon Lander session that probably would have put me at the top. But, I got this error instead. So frustrating! Uggghhh!! It doesn't happen all the time. But, I did have it happen on PacMan, Space Invaders, Moon Lander and Asteroids.

ETA: I just played Moon Lander again and managed to submit my score this time. I wish I knew what was causing my error. Okay. Whining over. I'm off to play some more.

I've gotten this error a couple of times - mainly on bubble blow out and on moon lander a couple of times. I was so bummed because I had a bubble blow out score that would have shot right past the current high score and it wouldn't register. Maybe it's our computer's little way of saying "get a life"...sigh...I'm spending WAY too much time in the arcade.

Am I doing something wrong? or do I have to go to another level to record score?

I guess it's not considered a technical problem if I just can't play very well - or not at all - or :computer:
Never was good at these things as a kid either but I'm trying cause I really enjoy playing. Oh well - back to Tiles I go.
