For next months game I'm thinking about going with Lode Runner.
Will all our regular players be able to play it?

I've created a LNX file that allows for easy loading in Handy. I can distribute it here.

The rules for this round of Klax only indicate you should pick Easy and start at level 1. Are you allowed to use warps at any subsequent warp selection screens (such as after completing round 5)?

Yes, warping is allowed if you get to the warp screen.

The Atariage data base has the Lode Runner ROM
Either way is good. :)

No it's a prototype. We never played a proto before in the Lynx HSC.
Just wondering if everyone would be able to play it.

I hadn't come across a lnx version of the file before. I only had the .o version of it. I guess II could have saved me the trouble. It was educational anyway. ;)

2600 KLAX - 93,300

 

SCREENPLAY: To get this significant score, I used the technique based on my strategy tips from the OLD 2600 High Score Club, Season 7 / Week 43 (Posts #23 and #24). I started on Wave 01 and used WARP to Wave 16 at the completion of Wave 05. URL for more details:

Sadly didn't have time this month, so I just did a quick round of Klax in emulation.

snap30.png

Just 35 995 on the Lynx version.

A really embarassing score, but at least I can get some points in the HSC by submitting at all.^^

For an extra point, I failed even harder in the Japanese version of Klax on Genesis, developed by Namco. This is completely different than the westen Genesis port from Tengen.

25 535 here.
