The number one screw up of DK3 beginners
« on: December 19, 2017, 05:29:12 pm »
I have notice a theme in most noobs Donkey Kong 3 playing.  They seem to almost always go for time, and time again after the super spray on the blue or gray board.  To them they for whatever reason think the super spray is an easy shortcut to pass the blue or gray board.  What happens more often than not, they end up losing a ton of lives during the game going after the super spray on these boards.
If they simply could hold off on getting the super spray till the gold board, they'd be good as gold.  Instead they go for broke and usually pay for it with their lives over, and over again.

Riley been watching my streams, I see.

I know this game is part shmup, but I've tried (not that hard) over 15 years to be good.  300k is my limit.  Just one of those many games I'll never truly "get".

Part of the transition from an average to a decent player is learning to survive the boards without the spray, knowing the correct time to use it and/or sac

I used to die a lot just going for the spray whenever it was there. You're better off to leave it and clean the board up. You'll always get it the next gold board anyway.

See, even you were doing it.  And you're a veteran of shooter games.

All part of learning the game really.  Bet you were doing it too when first playing

Putting the coin in
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

Stealing your joke material from the Donkey Kong chat box?  Even Carlos Mencia thinks that's wack.

Was it there already?  It must have been in between TG talk because I did not see it.  I do try my best here.
