Ok folks you voted for it (what do you mean you didn't vote?!)...

BC's Quest for Tires

bcs_quest_for_tires_cart.jpg

I'll not try to explain the plot for fear I will be declared insane, but jump and duck, hold fire in and use left and right to change the speed of your unicycle ;)

Press select (f3) to set level
Press option (f4) to see high scores or pause the game

Download here:
atarimania has full instructions and ROM file
atarionline.pl has XEX v1 & ATR v2 files (not the one with 80 lives!!)

Any suggestions for a companion bonus game with a stone age or unicycling theme? Ok we have the first ever unicyling themed HSC round [see posts below!] If anyone needs any help please post.
Pinhead
atarimania has COM file and instructions
fandal has XEX
atarionline.pl has XEX and ATRs

Games close Sun 18th Dec 10am GMT

Good Luck everyone and rescue that Cute Chick!

I don't think there is any difficulty / gameplay difference between starting on lvl 1 and going through 3 times to lvl 4 than if you start on lvl 4, and it doesn't appear to get any harder after this either (well, not when starting from lvl 1: so this 5th lvl appeared to be the same as the 4th)

I'll get the wheel rolling: 13605

Thanks for that, ok Play BC on Level 1 folks.
That's the first pun of the round :thumbsup: (where are you atariron82 ;) )

If you do this you'll not get the screen edges showing
Altirra users please set the following:
'View' 'Overscan Mode' 'Normal'


Pinhead has a unicycle theme. Pinhead anyone?

Nice one littleman :thumbsup:
yes Pinhead is a good game (once you get the hang of kicking the balloons back up by moving sideways into them and pressing fire!) I'll add it to the 1st post as I think BC might not be enough for 2 weeks play :ponder:

p.s. That's one evil looking clown - checkout the artwork :skull:

BC's Quest reminds me of Kickstart and I totally disliked that game, so this is my one and only attempt (sorry!)wheels.png

This game has some weird controls.
Wasn't this an old comic strip?

Takes a little bit of practice to get your speed up whilst avoiding stuff, but it's a fairly easy game!

Yes checkout the BC wikipedia page folks :)

Had a quick peddal:

BCs Quest: 7,175 got to lv3.

Pinhead: 26,200 - to maximise your score kick the bug thingys back up and try and catch them when you have a stack of balloons for 1600 pts - more pts for having other bonus items below them too. Think this game is completable (I hacked loads of extra men for my sisters to play it years ago!) still there's a generous amount of lives on the propper ver and an extra one at 20K.

The game gets much more fun after the first few screens; master that kicking folks - run into the balloons and kick late :)

BC's keep losing too many lives on the moving platform bits 9,175 (lv3)
If anyone wants a fun challenge go for highest score on 1st level, my best 3,090

Hints: keep fire held to increase speed by moving right and still jump or duck keeping it held until you are fast enough. Use jump up and right to make a bigger jump

Pinhead kicked the bucket on the purple heart level - there's a few extra men earned in play to make up for the unlucky deaths when you can't get to both balloons! 145,145 be sure to make good use of kicking the crabs [winces] back up until you get the 1600s plus big bonuses :)

If you want to turn off the soul destroying tunes press Option!

I am firmly of the opinion that Pinhead is a silly game.

I like the comic strip The Wizard Of Id :)

I don't think they ever got their own video game.

I got the bird to carry me over the pit, then I go downhill to a section of what looks like water and I die every time... Any hints?

Yep: Go really, really fast!!

To be more informative: As you come down the hill build up speed then jump the water pit (I had to read the instructions to get past that!)
