Great game selections for this round! I've always loved Galaxian and feel like I can play it pretty competently, Asteroids is just an absolute classic (though I had never played Game 4 before and was really surprised by how difficult it was), and Gyruss was completely new to me. I had played the arcade version of Gyruss a little bit in the past but this week was a first time I had experienced the Atari 2600 version, and I have to say it's a pretty impressive port. It's kinda like a cross between Tempest and Galaga, and I had a lot of fun with it. :)

 

 

Galaxian (Default Settings, Difficulty B/B): 73,110

I got frustrated with Asteroids yesterday so I put in Kaboom! and played that for awhile the first time this week.

I know exactly what you mean, I was swearing up a storm when I tried Asteroids yesterday. :lol: I must have played at least two dozen games of it and could rarely ever score over 10,000 until I had one seemingly miraculous game where I somehow managed to score 44,980. I still have no idea how it happened but at that point I was just like "Yep, I'll take it."

On a side note, it's a shame we can't use auto-fire controllers for the high score club because Gyruss needs one in the worst kind of way. I put some serious milage on my CX-78 joypad's fire buttons with that game!

Asteroids (4AA): 34,760

 

Galaxian: 23,240

 

Gyruss: 123,200

 

Fun games. Wish I had more time... The Gyruss score is a far cry from my personal best (about 316k), but I still don't have the cart - it's pretty rare over here, and I can't find one at a reasonable price... Emulating is fine, but I don't have my USB joystick adapter at hand at the moment. So this was done with cursor controls, which is really awkward. Love the music. So meditative :-).

Probably gonna play these two this week and Gyruss next week.
 
It's hard to get to the difficulty switches where the Jr. is now (see pic).  So, I'll play the A difficulty this week and the B difficulty next week.
 
.

Do the difficulty switches have any affect in Gyruss?

Asteroids 18,xxx

Had to go make lunch for my kids & when I got back down to the gameroom my score had disappeared but it WAS 18K something.

EDIT: I was texting a friend as I was playing (not doing both of course) & I told him my score

18,530

My 3 days with Gyruss

I really think I can score higher than this... kept waiting for the big breakout game but it never came.

DAMN those white Meterors!

 

I will revisit this game next week.

I don't think so, but I was going with the difficulty settings as they were described in the rules for this week, just in case.
