First time ever playing a Colecovision game and my first score at this HSC.
Interesting... but I have seen my brother play one in the mid 80's.

Emulator for the first time, this Sunday morning.

This is much different and more difficult than the 2600 version.

I have never played the 2600 version, however I think it is a major flaw that there isn't a way to know your lined up with the enemy ships. Making Buck's ship cross hairs would have made for a much better game.

Yeah, having cross hairs would of made this game better.
You just have to keep firing and hope for the best. :)

In the 2600 version you have to fly between a certain amount of electron posts and then destroy the mother ship at the end of the level, and then do the same thing all over again on the next more difficult level.
It's by far the easiest version of Buck Rogers i've ever played.
I got over 600k a few times. :)

This games pretty easy... just stay near the bottom and shoot, they can't run into you...

I only lost lives from having collisions with enemies higher up.

A better game would be to have the UFO's shoot at you, instead of rolling around you.

My score: 39.115
Thanks Jacob for your tip to stay near the bottom. But this ends deadly in the range of 35.000 points nevertheless.
My highest score ever, but I have to admit, I don't like this game.

Now my wishes for the next season:
Oil's Well, Montezuma's Revenge, Centipede, Spy Hunter, B.C.Quest for Tires
and Miner 2049er (but only when Tom Duncan shows me/us how to manage the level 6 and the higher ones)

This game needs a good remake.
Was never satisfied with any port of this game and it begs for greatness.

The CV version is okay but the ADAM version is much better. I detailed the differences in this old post.

I agree that this could be a great game. The UFOs look like flying omelettes :-).

I don't know about the points , but I had it figured out that I would end the season in 3rd Place. This help to decide to skip some of the games that suck IMO. I did however have 4 wins, instead 3.

Smurf, Skiing, Threshold and Nova Blast.

If Mister VCS, would post the official final standings for Season 4 as a last act as the HSC Moderator it would be greatly appreciated.
