HOW TO SCORE MORE THAN 20 POINTS ON COMBAT (game 4, difficulty BB)?

Here's my gameplay footage which I recorded using Stella Emulator. In this video, I got close to my best score of 25 points.

I'm DONE for this round. Now I'm going to wait for the next week and let more participants beat my score on TBNT.

I must be a glutton for punishment because I decided to play this awful game again - a tankless task if there ever was one.

 

Tanks But No Tanks: 4800

The thing I really enjoy about this High Score Club is that it gets me to play games I would have otherwise not played or to play game again that I otherwise would have not played again. These two were fun - even Combat. I may give these two games another shot tomorrow, hopefully with further score improvement.

 

(Difficulty B/B for both games)

 

Tanks But No Tanks: 5800

 

Combat (game 4): 22

With a little more practice I improved my score on Tanks But No Tanks. However, I did not improve my score on Combat game 4. On Combat game 4 I am still at 22.

The flicker in TBNT makes Wizard of Wor look downright lovely by comparison.

Combat 18. Biggest surprise to me is that there is actually strategy involved in solo Combat (a big tip: fire constantly).

Tanks But No Tanks - 4500

Very annoying game. It doesn't feel right when an 8-direction joystick is limited to 4 directions.

Combat is always good. :)
