I decided to devote the remainder of my Atari HSC playing time (almost an hour) to Super Cobra. I'm glad I did, because not only do I enjoy this game (except for the barely-negotiable tight spaces which present themselves every so often), but I did in fact manage to improve my score a little. The downside is that I think I've overused the medial forearm and wrist muscles involved in rapid fire button pressing. The price we pay...

 

(Difficulty B/B)

 

Super Cobra: 20110

I agree, Sorcerer without the flying carpet doesn't really seem any more difficult, maybe easier :ponder:

funny, in the walking picture he's flying, and in the flying picture he's walking.

without 

 

Can the without score be counted as the regular score? If So, count it as both

Sorry I haven't contributed much.  I'm going through a rough spot at my job.  I'll be leaving in a week or so, so hopefully I'll be back to my normal self soon.

Oh, look - four games that I suck at and will never play again!

Super Cobra: 6520

Planet Patrol: 3640

Bonus - Sorcerer w/out flying platform: 1240

I got a higher score with a handicap. Maybe I should go back and replay Super Cobra with a blindfold on. I couldn't possibly do any worse.

Exocet 1,280. Thought I'd take one last crack at it even though I really, really hate it.

HEY S.BAZ,

On Sorcerer Bonus Regular Mode (with the usage of magic flying platform), I'm listed TWICE on the final leaderboard.

For this mode, 1150 was my preliminary score on Sorcerer Bonus.

 

TO ALL PARTICIPANTS ON THIS CONTEST,

Please, check carefully your scores listed on the final Horizontal Shooters leaderboard!
