Scene tag

This game is similar in looks to the game known as "Plinko" but the game-play is totally different. You can read the game details in the scene.

After playing the game a few times to test it for bugs, my high score was 2710. Can you beat that? Show your high score in the comments section, but be fair about it! ;)

I beat it with 2850
2870, mhm-mhm
My recent best score was 3680! I was able to get such a high score after I figured out a "technique" that seems to help a lot. This is how I did it. After releasing the ball, I would follow the ball with my cursor just under it, and when I think that the ball was going to drop onto a particular peg, I would click on the peg to turn it red. You can continue doing that all the way down to the bins. The same technique works on the bins, but you get only one try down there.

If you figure out any other techniques (not "cheats") please share them here in the comments.
3400. this was my third time playing it because I did not know the rules correctlly the first 2 times.:P. but gg. really good xray.;)
3900. My strategy was to not to red anything for the first 5 balls and then to use Xray's strategy for the second 5 balls.
i got 450 in my first ball drop, not too bad!
kinda reminds me of my algotriacontathlon 3b
First try: ~ 2500 points points while trying (to break) the game (did not finish)
Second try: 4550 points (With bugs mentioned below)

- You can set peg to RED when it is already CLEAR
So you can click on the peg before ball touches it second time (even if it is clear) to turn it to red giving some extra points
- If your ball land into bin, you can change its color to red, so if it lands into black bin, you can get 1100 points (if clear, then just 1000)

FIX: After peg is clear, use (e)=>{} to all events to turn it off completely
Same for bin at the botom

If those are NOT BUGS then I won:D
@JakubKubo - quote: "You can set peg to RED when it is already CLEAR"

Yes, you are correct. Good catch! I will fix that in my next version.

quote: "FIX: After peg is clear, use (e)=>{} to all events to turn it off completely"

That would probably work, but that method is not good programming practice. I will fix it a different way.

Thanks for your input and your suggestions!

There are no winners or losers here. People can continue to better the high score for the next hundred years. :lol:

I got a score of 3020 using regular techniques, and 4,900 by using a modified version of s_noonan's technique! :lol:
I have photos of both runs, and I might post a video to Youtube to show how I did it! :tup:

Attach link here, then!
Interesting game idea:tup:
An interesting variation is to change the pin onCollide event as follows"

color == _red ? {
color = _clear; = + 100
} : {};
color == _black ? {
color = _clear; = + 10
} : {
color = _black
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm sure there are thousands of different variations that can be done to this scene (or to ANY scene, for that matter). When (or if) I decide to make any edits to this scene, I'll give your code a try.
I suggest do not change the uploaded scene. The code variation was presented as something to play around with but not necessarily save. There is no need to respond to this comment since it would probably take more time to respond than to try out the code and it's understood that you will try the code out if and when you feel like it.

I tried your code, and yes, I agree that it's an interesting variation, and it's easy to implement. Even though there are 256 pegs that need to get the new code, it can be done all in one quick edit with the "select alike" feature. I may add more to the variation and make it "switch selectable". That way, a user can decide which variation to use.

I got 2910 points.who can beat me?
I cheated to see what the most possible points were and if you are perfect it is possible to get 6760 points (though it may not be physicly posible)
i already red the rules, so does this mean i can make total drama island scenes?
I don't have a clue what a "total drama island" is. If you read the rules, then you shouldn't need to ask that kind of question anyway. :rolleyes:
