I think the chance of the woman turning when you approach her is around 70%. She has two hitboxes, one to hit her and another, which is larger, to change direction. The key is to change direction as soon as you enter her turning hitbox. When this happens, she doesn't turn again, and sometimes you can get so close that you will need to wait for her to run a little to get in range of the tip of the chainsaw.

Thank you very much Ponkey for that great tip, I didn't know about it, after many, many attempts and several hours of anger, I got 34k points.

The game is entertaining, but I still think that the 30k points achievement is totally unnecessary.
televandalist 23 Oct 2023 18:26
Funny story: the only reason the 30k achievement exists is because I was annoyed about the set being in a list of easy masteries. You'll notice that the upload date is a bit later than the rest of the set.

Anyway, I had planned on removing it until someone got antagonistic with me over it.

But now I think too many people have earned it to justify getting rid of it. Also, quite a few people have gotten higher scores than that according to the leaderboard...

I find it fine the way it is, it's just very frustrating for most people with regular reaction time.
My take is that the frustration got compounded because we have to master 6 games due November 15th and people are venting here.
televandalist 23 Oct 2023 18:38
I mean, the set is five years old and this is the most action it's gotten in a while. :P
Ponkey 23 Oct 2023 21:42
It's more than just reaction time, you need good RNG too. Sometimes the woman spawns in front of you several times in a row. Sometimes it just spawns several wheelchairs at 400km per hour in your direction.
Ponkey 23 Oct 2023 21:43
You need to be sharp and grind a good RNG
DevilishDanni 23 Oct 2023 22:10
I’m only missing that 30k achievement and no matter how many hours i put in I just can’t get it. :(
automidnight 23 Oct 2023 22:38
This was fun! Thanks for the set!
psyduck 23 Oct 2023 23:00
Really, the 30k is how to make the most out out of an Atari set. I'm sure I'll be weeping about it in a couple more hours of attempts, but...

28,000 points six times in a row ( ╯°□°)╯ ┻━━┻

I really enjoyed playing this set. I felt the 30k cheevo was the baby bears porridge. Yes, albeit difficult but I feel like it's like the perfect touch to actually master this set. Sarconius' tip about time helped along with watching IceTeaZouneT's youtube video helped set a flow in mind. Also ChronoGear's tip in the "Pixel Perfect" cheevo can help too! Good luck!

Being honest I did find Haunted House 10 times more difficult and tedious than the 30k cheevo thing. To get the "I Ain't Afraid of No Ghost" cheevo you have to know the level 9 map, how enemies behave and how to juke 'em and pray for good RNG, not only on objects location but with enemies location as well. I can't even remember the total tries in a row I did playing that game, and for 10 points only.. With this is only try and keep trying 'till the good run appears. Fun set televandalist, I enjoyed the marathon ones.

It sounds ridiculous but the only thing getting me away from the 30k cheevo is NPCs breaking my ankles. I mean the RNG and everything going like Flash are just pain but I can't fight against the jukes, at least yet.
GregHouse007 2 Nov 2023 19:30
I found this one way harder than Haunted House in my experience. You have to be too efficient with the kills while also praying for good RNG here and there's really no way around it

Mastery #25: This set took me almost 10 hours, the 30k achievement ruined me.

This was a little pixelated fun. Got 26k with no problem but realised getting 30k is 90% luck-based on the appearance of women and obstacles at the right time. Re-running whole thing just to get stuck on a wheelchair at the end is no fun at all. Didn't bother on hardcore and just completed the set.

Long live leatherface!
