My son and I want to compete against each other at Mario Bros., so I was wondering if anyone had come up with a way/formula to incorporate points and levels passed into one overall score. That way there would be more of an even playing field as you could obviously just run right through levels without points. Thanks for any help?
I think I entered a tournament once where we did time remaining + (X*coins)+(Y*lives) and then you totalled up your score for each level passed... think it was just for the world 1 levels though.
I don't recall what the values for x and y were (though I imagine that Y>X to compensate for getting too many coins and getting an extra life.
I ran bolted through in an attempt to just have time remaining... didn't manage to get anywhere near the top, so presume the X and Y values were pretty spot on... shame I can't remember them.
Maybe just try a few levels of not collecting coins vs collecting them to figure out the X/Y balance?
