This is a game that could be remade using the 2600 driving controller. The collision detection is a bit off and the scrolling is choppy. It's too bad because it's a great arcade shooter.

And the background color should always be blue.
And the enemies bullet should be a different color than yours.
And the parachute should be a different color than the clouds.

Will there be leader board updates in the OP before the round is over?

Yes. I'm out of town with work at the moment and don't have access to my tracking spreadsheet. I will post the leaderboard as well as update the current high scores on Saturday.

I just had an interesting glitch occur on Time Pilot. I was in the 1940s level and shot the required 20 planes, but the red plane never appeared so I couldn't advance to the next level. It never did appear for any of my remaining lives...weird!!!

Another arcade favourite! This port should have been so much better :( It suffers from all those factors mentioned(in patbb's post) albeit unnecessarily. It seems harder than the arcade because we're starting on Skill level 2, instead of the natural progression through level 1. It might otherwise be more fun for everyone ;)

Okay folks - the leaderboard has now been added to the OP as well as the high scores submitted to date.

I am considering adjusting the +1 bonus point eligibility from having to achieve the "final" medal to just the first medal due to the sheer difficulty of Skill 2. Let me know what you think - I'll go with the majority view on this.

I don't think changing something after the contest starts is a good thing to do.

Agreed.

Besides, I think bonus points in HSCs are bogus. In some instances, people are given bonus points that have nothing to do with their ability to play the game. The season champion could be decided on whether a player drew a picture of Popeye or not.

Got the final medal this time.

I think the +1 should just be for the final medal.

Okay folks, thanks for the feedback and it is well taken. We'll leave the challenge as a +1 for the "final" medal only. Having struggled with this game on Skill 2 I wasn't even sure if the final medal was achievable. ed1475 has proven me wrong so the challenge seems to be quite valid as-is.

BTW - I now have moderator status for this forum - thank you Albert.
