Buried Buck$

Bomb holes and grab the $s. Info My info has last played in season 5 - I thought we had played this more recently :ponder:

Gateway to Apshai

Interesting!

Warhawk

Candidate for the most intense shooter ever. I see this has been fixed by Fandal not sure what for as it used to work just fine on cassette!

Carlson's Mixed Bag:

 

I did something unusual. I utilized a random number generator to first select 5 different letters, then based on how many entries there are on each letter on Atarimania, I randomized which game in order to pick. I added two rules: if the entry I ended up with is missing, looks like a non-game, an adventure or strategy game without scoring I picked the closest action game next to it, either above or below. I also ran it across the HSC ratings to minimize the chance either game has been played before.

 

These were my five random picks, which I haven't even downloaded to try myself so far so they may be entirely crap or unplayable for a HSC perspective:

 

Fortune Hunter - has some graphics bugs, but is kind of playable in its simplicity

Joe a Ptaci - unable to understand the controls, but slow as crap (BASIC game)

Let's Hop - this one is a Bounder clone that counts score, time and distance, quite playable actually!

Oh! Frankie! - not that fun, although it has some playability value

Pyromania - BASIC game, slow but simple

 

Edit: Updated with some playability notes. Most of those picks would be terrible in the HSC, but Let's Hop is worth voting for, perhaps as a bonus game to Yoomp! or something similar.

Snokie is a lot of fun, but I'm not sure it would hold interest for 2 weeks.  Would definitely need a bonus game in there.

 

Buried Bucks is fun too.  Gets real challenging around level 4 or 5.  But it's been played before.  Hmmm...

 

Gateway to Apshai...I might have to duck for cover on this one.  It's ok, but not my cup o' tea.

 

Warhawk:  Haven't been able to get it up and running on Altirra yet.  Might have to play with the settings a bit.

 

Mixed Bag:  Interesting idea.  Haven't tried those yet...but the reviews on them look less than appealing.  LOL!

 

Decided to go with Snokie.

Thought I'd clear out some of the games lists' lesser known ones for this round ;)

 

Warhawk might be PAL only - try fandal's file version as it says "fixed" so it must be fixed for something!
