Every player who played the BASIC bonus game gets a point. BallyAlley (that's me
) earned an extra point for scoring the highest on this little diverting game.1st BallyAlley 1,822 2 pts $ (Bonus point for highest score)

roadrunner 1 + 3 = 4 ptsBonus Points Key:
Note that I have not
awarded any bonus points for "Highest Level Reached." I noticed that in the initial post for this round's rules, I failed to say for which
game the "Highest Level" point would have been awarded (though, at the time, I had Brickyard
in mind). Since the high score and the highest level reached go hand-in-hand, awarding a bonus point for reaching the "highest" level is basically just like re-awarding a point for earning the highest score.
Clowns/Brickyard! - Beating 1,722 Points in "Brickyard" on professional (No Point Awarded)
"Brick 'N The Wall" (Bonus Points):# - Playing "Brick 'N The Wall"
$ - "Brick 'N The Wall" High Score
% - Video of "Brick 'N The Wall" (No Point Awarded)
Please, check your scores. Congratulations to Round 5's winner, BallyAlley!
(Should I congratulate myself
like that? It feels kind of weird to talk about myself in the third-person.)
The next round we're going to try our first third-party cartridge game: Mazeman
. This one is hardly ever mentioned, which is partially why I have picked it. Another influence for the choice of Mazeman
was that I ran across a review of it last week and I posted it to BallyAlley.com. I realize that not everyone has this game cartridge (it's extremely
rare), but it is
available on (I think) all of the Astrocade multicarts. If you don't have a multicart, then you can always play it under Astrocade emulation in MAME.
The official start of Round 6 will be announced tomorrow, but feel free to start wandering your way through the twelve mazes that make up the world of Mazeman
