This is Week 22

Crystal Castles ~ 4 Board Challenge



Once upon a time, Bentley Bear was rambling through the woods, daydreaming about poached salmon. He stopped to take a nap in his favorite hollow tree trunk. But when he awoke, he found himself inside a huge castle glittering with diamonds, emeralds, and pearls.

Though Bentley didn't know it at the time, he was trapped in Crystal Castles, home of Berthilda the Witch and her evil cronies. To escape their spell, he must harvest the gems in the castles before Berthilda and her malicious gang send him into permanent hibernation.


Game Name: Crystal Castles
Released By: Atari, 1984
Left Difficulty: B / Novice -Easy Version
Right Difficulty: N/A
Game Mode: Boards 1-4 ONLY (see below).

Post your scores right here in this thread, and I will add them to the list. Remember to play the game with the recommended game mode and difficulty settings as shown above so that your scores will be consistent with everyone else. The deadline for posting scores is Midnight, Feb 24, 2013.

Crystal Castles ~ Start on Level 1 and play Boards 1-2-3-4. They are the first 4 boards you will see. Then on level 5 DO NOT MOVE.
The Nasty Tree will get stuck on the hat and then YOU MUST TAKE A PIC OF YOUR SCORE NOW.
Try to include Bentley in the pic so I know you didn’t move.
The Gem Eaters won’t get to you for a while because they are looking for gems.

So play Boards 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 then when level FIVE starts DO NOT MOVE and then take your pic.
This weeks’ HSC will be who scores the most points after you play BOARDS 1,2,3,4.

This game looks like Pacman plus jumping, which doesn't bode well for me. But I like trying out new games, so I'm looking forward to another week of Atari zaniness.

I wonder why only 3 stages.
Is it too easy and everyone would roll the score?
Or just another interesting twist in this round?

I guess I am confused. Is each level divided into sub-stages? Could you show a screen shot of the level we are supposed to stop at? I played the first 3 stages, but only scored 11055.

Hey Zoyx and members who don't have any experience on Crystal Castles (I am one of less experienced players on this game), check out Christian Keilback's videos to learn the mechanics of this game.

@ VOCELLI, Just for clarification - Are Levels 1, 2 and 3 the first 3 boards as shown on Crystal Castles Part 1 Video?
@ VOCELLI, for Bonus Points (Regular Game), I can play all the levels until I lose all my lives, as shown on these videos. Is it right?

Woah!
I must have been tired when I posted this.
Look above for the changes. Sorry!

Your board should look like this....
In the middle is Bentley, a hat and a Nasty Tree stuck on the hat.
I did not move when BOARD FIVE started.I played boards 1-2-3-4 and took this pic on BOARD 5.

Just a twist because your score depends on how many gems you get, how many Gem Eaters you kill, if you get the last gem and how many gems the enemies destroy.
It takes a lot of skill.
So play boards 1-2-3-4 and take your pic by not moving Bentley on board 5.

Good luck. Any questions?

By board...do you mean screens? So you clear the first four screens and then screenshot the fifth?

I think you just wait for the solid bar to come down and then you push your joystick up to go up. But I'm new at this game, so I'm not 100% sure.

Clearly not my game (which may be one of the reasons gamerguy is rocking the house, both literally and figuratively.)

Maybe I'll have a Saturday epiphany, but for now that 3 bonus points looks like a distant dream.
