+ 2600 HIGH SCORE CHALLENGE 2012

Our third HSC + Elimination round is Ataris YARS' REVENGE
Posted Image

SETTING: Play ULTIMATE YARS setting (B/B Game 6)

DEADLINE TO PLAY: This round has now begun, it will run a week or until
Sunday, January 22nd 11:59PM EST (EASTERN TIME)
Play with Atari 2600 Console, or Emulation.
Any joystick or keyboard is fine!

Pics are encoraged here, however I WILL accept a no pic score.

Anyone can jump in and play for a High Score and Ranking, if they like...
Every score will be counted for the High Score Challenge also, even if you're not entered
in the Winter 2600 Knockout.

Everyone starts each game with a score of ZERO, one goal is to get above 0... or get a high score,
if you don't you will be eliminated and the lowest score earned of the active KO players, is safe!
A KING status will be awarded at the end of every round winner, as well as rankings and
points. First place gets +15 points! From there on, 1+ less...

For the K.O., you need not win, just not finish LAST! Let the battle begin...

THIS GAME IS ALSO OPEN FOR HIGH SCORE CLUB POINTS AND RANKING!

Don't fall for his lies! We all know Oyama has played these damn games to death! I personally have never really played this game that much. Looking forward to actually sitting down and trying it for real.

Yeah, he rolled it in season 8. I rolled it the first time I played it... after 15 months. I think I rolled this 2 weeks after I bought in the early 80s.

I'm not done yet. This would be just my 3rd game. I was doing great until the heat sinking crap came up. I'll have another go and see if I can adjust to that a little better.

Do you guys want me to make a video of me playing... or do you want to figure it out yourself? It won't be pretty... but may give you some tips.

Here is my score in Yars' Revenge which DOES NOT COUNT: it refers to Ultimate Yars (Game 6) with Difficulty A. This score is JUST FOR TESTING MY SKILL AND COORDINATION.
