Ahhh Moon Patrol... a game that never fails to frustrate the bejesus out of me and make me shout profanity at my television screen, and yet for some reason I still really like it. :lol:

Finally made it through the first round, with two lives left even. Only to die very very stupidly on the first rockets from behind. Totally unnecessary deaths due to messed up timing.

 

Ah well, at least I have achieved my three minimum goals for this week. (1) Make it through, (2) get over 30k, and (3) get this adorable music stuck in my head.

 

Moon Patrol: 32,180.

With 2 speeds, you can move forward but the terrain doesn't move any faster. You can test the speeds by how many seconds go by on the clock before the first obstacle reaches the left side of the screen

Can you really?

Holding right with both the A/B right difficulties I get about 10 or 11 seconds on the clock when the first black 'X' crosses the screen.

Which difficultly are we supposed to use?

I'm consistently getting 10 seconds to the first checkpoint in either A or B as well. Maybe this was a feature that was planned but ultimately not implemented and never removed from the manual.

Moon Patrol: 35020

I get to the point right after the rocket comes behind me. I cannot get past those tanks.

Hoping to just 1 time make it past that area.

Never played this game and I really don't like it.

Shooting numbers will lose you points.... that's just silly gameplay.

I've been using more profanity ever since I played on a 5200 for a contest last year.

... alright, after a bunch of test-runs I'm agreeing there's no difference between difficulty A and B. 

(i must have been hallucinating before, lol)

 

so, the final ruling:

 

-- all scores count

-- use A or B, your choice!

-- godzillajoe's record is back in effect this week!

 

 

... some improvements from me:

 

Moon Patrol:  43,720

Gas Hog:  19,880

Moon Patrol (1B) 43720.jpg Gas Hog (1B) 19880.jpg

 

I like Gas Hog but it seems like it should be getting faster or something.  Nothing ever really changes to make it get harder except for those aliens up above multiplying.

 

and I get frustrated when I jump up top accidentally before the fuel arrives.
