You're cruising around on a volcano beside a T-rex, when all of a sudden, a giant meteor lights up the sky! It will crash into the planet in 1 minute, exterminating all dinosaurs and kuskis... unless you can escape. It's time for...

DINO RUN!

What is Dino Run?
Dino Run is a new competition designed by me. It was inspired from a series of 8 battles I started at night where the battletime was 1-minute long. These battles were accompanied with a storyline for extra tension to beat each level on time. These levels were very well received by the other people online, so I decided to try this style of level again.

Competition Details
Part 1 - Dino Run
Time: 2016 December 17 (Saturday), 18:00 GMT. Click for Countdown
Levels: 8-10 levels
Battletype: 1-minute battles
Points:
-20 points for fastest finish
-10 points for slowest finish
-0 points if level not completed within 1 minute
(Equation: 10*(2-(x-1)/(n-1)), where x=xth place, and n=number of kuskis who beat level)

Example: 9 people beat the level. 1st place gets 20 points, 5th place gets 15 points, and 9th place gets 10 points.

Part 2 - Total Time Competition
1 hour after the last level is battled, the player with the best total time will win a prize as well.

Trophies
-1 postcard from Canada will be sent to the winner with the most points at the end.
-1 postcard will be sent to the player with the best total time 1 hour after the end of the last level.
-1 player cannot get both postcards, in which case I will give the second postcard to second place of the total time competition

RANKINGS
Purple indicate players that were bumped up in ranking because of adjustments based on time.

Levels will be cruise-like.

The previous battles were quick night-balles so not very refined, but here are two:

Results posted!

Kazan is competition winner and will get a postcard from Canada if get address :)
jblaze is total time winner and will get postcard from Canada if get address :)

Thoughts:
Points system was a bit confusing at the start for Ramone, but I think it worked well. The way the points system was organized, it favors kuskis who finish the most amount of battles. I think that perhaps the difficulty of the balles could be decreased a bit so a larger percentage of kuskis could finish each balle. Some balles were harder than I expected them to be originally.

I tried some experimental artistic styles in some of the levels, and it seemed like none of this caused any issues with the mans playing, although perhaps in the future it would be good to use non-sky backgrounds more sparingly

9 balles seemed to be a good length.

Not many mans went for total time.

The competition was super well received & ran pretty well.

Very fun competition, at the end I felt like I could totally play at least a twice longer contest of the same format.

That would be greatly appreciated!

In the first level it wasn't clear where the non-polygon part of the dinosaur ends. So I was afraid I'll hit head and had to slow down there. No problems otherwise.

and a postcard from canada as a cheer-up prize, cool :D small consolation after the REAL DEAL part, at least i can pretend i didnt lose completely

I've have some extra postcards from Canada that are being saved for the second round of Dino Run, so don't worry :)

Thinking of making the second one with contributions from other kuskis to help keep up the variety and quality of the levels :)

I'll let you all know when it's going to happen
