Hi All --

Been a while since I have submitted a score -- before I submit my next score, I have a question on an element in a game which could be considered leeching, but wanted to confirm with you just in case. In the game I plan on submitting, there is no official level "timer". The boss of the level, if left there long enough, eventually leaves -- allowing you to beat the level. During this time, you can rack up points on anything else that shows up. If you choose to, you can still defeat the boss normally in order to get the associated points.

My question is, since the boss is on its own "timer", I assume racking up points on collateral elements would not be considered leeching. From what I have seen on other sites, this is not considered leeching on this game and therefore allowed.

In any case, wanted to ensure HARP is ok with it before I submit. Thanks!

That would probably be fine, if a bit boring, but that's entirely up to you. Smile

Leeching rules would be borrowed from marp. I think if there is a limited form of leeching where you can't do it forever (timer's are ok) it will be accepted.
