April 19th Saturday April 25th 2020 earned playing my Basic game MINER will win a "Type-in Mania 2020" trophy that I will send to them.
A second trophy will be awarded to the first person to complete my Basic game ADVENTR by retrieving the chalice and taking it to the Yellow Castle with the highest level (1-3), and also having retrieved the micro dot and used it (dropped it) in the correct location to reveal the secret entrance to a secret room. They must record evidence of the message that can be found in the secret room and their winning screen (screenshots or video) posted on a public forum (Coco Facebook, MC-10 Facebook, Youtube, etc.) before the end of
Last year the award went to George Phillips for achieving high score on my game Dam Busters. His score earned him a Distinguished Flying Cross and a Victoria Cross!
If people have suggestions for alternative original games of mine they would prefer to play for high score for this year's Type-in Mania awards, let me know. I will consider possibly adding a 3rd trophy. Or perhaps I will simply get some specialty mugs made. Feel free to arrange online game playing sessions in any forum that might get arranged for a "virtual CocoFest" or sessions at any time between now and the deadline. You can contact me at jimUNDERSCOREgerrieATns.sympatico.ca to let me know.
