Well I embarrassed myself today almost..I thought I had the high score in St. Nick, but when i was making the list of scores, I found that my nemesis, Globeron, won this month.

So since I compiled the scores, I thought I’d post them. I’ll leave it to Globeron to pick the next game.

St. Nick - December 2018
1. Globeron 28240
2. Jwild - 27470
3. Opry99er - 24750
4. Chue - 20430
5. Save2600 - 17640
6. OLD CS1 - 6630
7. I like turtles - 4170
8. Buckobrand - 2580
9. Vorticon 3950
10. Tursi 1940
11. Fimbulvetr 380
12. Digdugnate 100

Happy New Year Everyone!

Real Hardware 37945. Game mode (not Tournament mode). Improvements that can be done in the game. 1. Use the firebutton of the joystick as the any key. 2. Once a power pill has eaten honoos are not blue anymore when entering the other screen.034ddc86ab006a2698d0e7a2cb815cd9.jpg

I have always cosidered the Hoonos being normal when switching screens was a challenging part of the game.

Score: 97940

Hint: try to get as many Hoonos as possible to get points and extra Munch-Mans every 10.000 points.

Also switching often between screens using T helps to get some chains cleared.471d7590908a1c882a2186c9720c4f4e.jpgcf2694c85825b29698d7965346e5e5be.jpg

I like that tape player you have on your desk. Never seen one like that before.

Great score by the way!

It is my first, still works perfectly the Sanyo DR202A. Easy to search with ADSS (whatever it stands for).e89c388c0f94b2d21a40e470333b1bf6.jpgaf55eb77f4f2aa211c27e19486ef40a9.jpg

Prizes

(I really do not have so much TI hardware myself for the game competition to give away unfortunately. My father though has quite a lot of TI hardware, but I need to find time to investigate it and probably need to keep it for spares/repair).

For next time I will look for software based prizes if it is okay with the group, still have some fun stuff (some of them shared already on FB / AtariAge).

Prizes for the winner (thanks to Tursi):
* Atarisoft module (by Rasmus/Tursi), with Centipede, PacMan, Mrs. Pacman, Donkey Kong, Defender, Dig Dug, see screenshot.

and

* 2x Modules without housing:

Heh... it took 10 years without deleting any personal messages, but I finally hit my 500 conversation limit.  :)

 

I have deleted some.  You may proceed, sir.

Several days late and many dollars short - I know. But playing Munchman II, I discovered today that I had a bad/flaky extension cable going to my Wico joystick adapter. All of the sudden, I could no longer move left. Tried reseating the cable ends, etc. to no avail. Something internally must have come loose/broke off and not shocked considering it was a brand new Chinese Retrobit extension cable. 
 
Anyway after discovering this, decided to give 'ol St. Nick another try, as I was certain the flaky cable was to blame when I experienced some not so responsive action out of Santa at times. Damn witch nipped me in the corner there, else I was on a roll!     :dunce:

I know it's too late, just felt the achievement was worth sharing for posterity. I'll post some scores of Munchman II soon.   :)

Get as much Honoos as possible each time eating a power pill max.1875 points per pill x8 pills = max. 15.000 points per level (but hard to get all hoonos each time), but every 10.000 you get a new Munch Man. Once you get it going, the more and more MM you get. I have not checked what the max. is only 4 are displayed and I did not count it. I did not had a feeling that Hoonos became more intelligent to find Munch Man or became faster over time.
