Now that's impressive.

Thanks, but mostly luck.  When you get down to the last few bricks, the ball patterns can take forever to line up with the remaining

bricks.  But on this particular run I was fortunate to knock off the last few with little muss or fuss.

Yes, on mine the last two bricks were taken out right away with some odd bounces off the side and top.

1B - 45

5A - 45

 

Obviously, paddle weeks are :sad: for me.

 

I played the first game and got 45.  Then I played the bonus game and got 45.  Then the tv stopped working (sizzle, sizzle, pfft). :)

 

And so it goes.

Paddle games without paddles sure kick my butt.  May have to order some. 

 

Does anyone have any tips for emulator settings when playing with the mouse?

I was doing consistently better with the mouse than with paddles. Feels a little like cheating, but I can learn to live with it. :)

Game 5A:  no luck.

 

remember, if you don't finish the Breakout on Game 5A you time doesn't count, but you still get a bonus point for trying.

 

Game 1B: no improvement.  I've never finished both boards before!  this time so far I haven't even finished one.

 

i seem to get about the same result using the mouse or paddle.

Determined to max this one out.  Playing the bonus was good practice, I can taste the end.

So freaking close :P  It's so frustrating when the ball gets stuck in the same pattern and you just want it to end.

 

Game 1 B/B:  863
