Winning a hotly contested poll is Super Cobra a classic scramble style game, can't remember if ends of gets harder the 2nd time through or just continues... [will check!] It doesn't - last time orpheuswaking managed 3 times through. On the final stage you need to do collect the "[$]" to complete it otherwise it will wrap around. Fairly tricky game to start with but it's the same each go so you can make improvements.
Scoring based on distance "Miles" (not score)
Restart from the beginning each time and no autofire!
Bonus Scouting Mission Play any similar Scramble style game (Horizontal scroller where you destroy things on the playfield (not just a shooter like DropZone), that has not played in the HSC before and report back on it. So this excludes the fabulous Beta Lyrae and the more than decent Dawn Raider but you could check out Air Strike I / II and many others. The HSC Ratings & Records lists all games played (apart from Super Cobra for some reason!). See atarimania's horizontal scrollers list for some ideas
Round ends Sunday 5th March 10am UK time
