I know, only telling you so that you don't stop there. Better to have more competition.

edit:

I've figured out the point system in this game. Every 10th of a second is 1 point, so 1 second is 10 points. Every goal starts with 500 points and starts subtracting points for every 10th of a second it takes you to get to the next goal. If it takes you over 50 seconds, that will be -500 points, so by the time you get to the next goal you will have 0 points for that particular goal. I may not be right on this, but I think that if you skip a goal then that nullified goal will count as a 500 point bonus toward the next goal, so skipping goals is a very effective way of optimizing score. The maximum points (not possible) if you were hacking, would be 10 goals x 4 maps x 500 points = 20,000 points. I think that a realistic max time is somewhere in the 17,000 point range if someone were to manage to execute all known shortcuts flawlessly, and the 18,000 point range if some new glitches are found.

Bananas do not count for points, they are entirely optional. The only use they have is to activate the coins along the map, or if you are going for the Perfect Run stamp then you need to get through without dying and grabbing all bananas (coins are optional).

I extended it for 1 more week, since we will have T-shirts.com posting our article, and I just published one for our main page. So that way we might get a few new members for the contest! New end date is December 17th (Sunday) at 11:59 PM EST time. If the photo is submitted after this time it will not count unless users are having extreme difficulties (will try to work those out to avoid this).

I am confused does it end today or tomorrow? Today is Sunday, tomorrow is the 17th.

So is it over? It's 11:09 here in Texas, so I assume eastern time is like New York time right? Which is 12:09 am there right now.

Was practicing right now to make higher scores but didn't realize the time. :tongue:

I win? :???:

My submission is on the miiverse right now, sent to greg through there and found on my NNID profile "Memory", of 16066 points. I just remembered about the contest now, sad that I didn't have time to make a better score. Tomorrow I'll take a picture and upload it here, but I may not need to if Noah had a higher score.

Pretty much this, I was going by the date (17th) for my submission and am still under the impression that the contest has about 20 hours left.

Hmm.. Since I said the 17th, it appears it will end tonight. I'm surprised no one asked about this mistake beforehand...

So 11:59pm EST TONIGHT. That's like 14 hours and 5 minutes from this post time.

I beat your score but not by much. I will post it sometime around 7:00 EST.
