The scoring will sound complicated, erm because it is, but I'll take care of it so you can concentrate on playing [Link to Tourney Current Points Standings]
Boot with BASIC enabled Final?! version of ATR (all games startable using joystick, rearguard press fire for 1 player & defaulted to level 2, 'reset' now takes you to the disk menu without a reboot (thanks to Rybags) + Runaway Van now works on an 800 & fixed annoying bug in Minelayer & Gwobby without DL mods on title screen to see if it works on US 130XE?! Runaway van fixed again oops, and Ball Harbour colours fixed!):

(ATR is 1050 density, all games apart from Gwobby run on an 800/48K if anyone needs any help let me know)
- 10 Games
- 1 HSC point for each played
- 5 bonus HSC points for qualifying in all 10 games.
- Then, for those who have qualified, these scores go into a table for each game and are awarded tourney points: from 1 for the bottom player up to the number of people who have played. e.g. If five players qualify for Briky then the top player gets 5 tourney points, down to 1 for the 5th placed player.
- Finally, at the end of the month all tourney points are added and an overall table is scored in the same manner with real HSC points. 1 for bottom and a number equal to the number of players for top.
Here are the games and a brief description:
Briky Qualifying Target 350
Survive, collect faces for more points, avoid bombs.
Rear Guard (Play on skill level 2) Qualifying Target 300
Shoot bad guys before too many of them escape from the screen. Hint, get up high!
Runaway Van (one of my own, sorry) Qualifying Target 350
Jump over the orange guy, collect the purple geezer or was it run him over
Gwobby Qualifying Target: Beating the Magmapus (shoot his legs off!) on Level 20! (level displayed on title screen just about legible if you turn the colour up.)
Draw a line so Gwobby (our hero) can reach the exit safely. Practice on 'gwobeasy' until you get the hang of it. Use fire and right to draw down diagonally quickly, collect ammo for shootout's every 10th screen (full instructions on the website)
Balloonacy Qualifying Target 1200
Pop balloons with your head, press fire to use hands if you miss one. Watch out for skulls!
Minelayer Qualifying Target 350
Get to your base whilst avoiding the mines!
Ball Harbour Qualifying Target
Rebound Qualifying Target 8000
Fast paced shooting 'n' dodging.
Flying Bombs Qualifying Target 75,000
Shoot planes, avoid planes, erm you're in a tank
Escape Qualifying Target 20,000
Collect bricks in your lorry, take them to the river and build a crossing, simple? Did I mention the wall of fire and fuel limit?! You can drop bricks anywhere and collect them again.
