Stealth & Nightraiders

stealth_broderbund_2.gifnightraiders_datamost.gif

Prevent Earth from being over run by tyrants? but wait! it's too late! We have already been over run, so we need to do something about that first so the other tyrants can take over - then we can repel them again...  you get the idea probably not but it's fly around and shoot stuff either way :P

 

I think I played Landscape the forerunner of Stealth and found it a bit easy so will be nice to see how Stealth compares. Nightraiders was discussed on a recent Antic Podcast (possibly the gary koffler or Hal Glicksman ones ).

 

Together they should make a nice HSC round. We'll go for a 2 weeker and see how things go. Some good info on atarimania for both games :thumbsup:

Nightraiders start on Novice, looks like it will level up at the end of each round.

Stealth instructions say disk (ATR) version (on post #10) will save scores

Stealth:

 

I played it and finished first level (first time that I see falling the dark tower, cool !) getting 11,000 points, however when I started level 2 the score is reset. Therefore maybe we should choose only one level ? or write done every level's score.

:D

as runner up the big hairy beastie will go back in for one more chance at some point this season ;)

 

Next round we might go for a multi-game seasonal haloweener :ponder: we have played loads of ghost games already but I'm sure there's another batch of nasties waiting in the shadows :-o

Stealth Ok write down each level as you go :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

 

had a few goes on each game:

Stealth 1200 2600 9700

Nightraiders 1201 1301 1560

 

Is it me or is Nightraiders terrible? It's rated at 6.9 on atarimania and supposedly inspired by Zaxxon but I can't hardly shoot anything and it's hard to avoid things. Is there another stage after the 3rd open bit?

Anyway... game finished.

Nightraiders 22,063

 

It was me! Nightraiders Tips: Survive the first bit - avoid the tanks (or wait until they fire then move across to get them), on the open bit you need to shoot the plane that dives towards you otherwise it will come back on - set your aim guide low to do this. Then keep fuelled as you play and on the final stage you need to shoot the 3 points of the triangle thingy to complete the level - you may need several passes through the game to do this. I reached the 2nd level (cadet 21,150 on the first level). Not managed to shoot the train yet :ponder: on 3rd level more ships to shoot and spacecraft shoot you across screen etc.

You played from level 1 and reached the end on level 5?  :thumbsup:  OK rank wins then score for those of us who don't complete the game :-D

 

Stealth destroyed 1st tower (15,300) and 12,300 on the 2nd level. XEX locked up at end (grey screen) possibly trying to save score - it was so use ATR version on Post #10

 

Stealth tips: if you are an idiot like me and wondered why sometimes the distance increases or stops it's because you have turned around so head towards the tower black pole thingy :dunce: Slow down over the energy fields to maximise recharge (you can get 500+ if you are lucky, max charge is 3000). There are some additional baddies on 2nd level possibly you have to head sideways to find more energy fields! 3rd level has more features coming at you forcing you to move. Note: Firing uses 10 units of energy for each shot!

Reminded this round closes Sunday morning.

 

Not the best two games we have, Stealth is frustrating as you have to wait for so long - might be worth starting on 3rd level where it is more fun. Nightraiders is ok but could have been much better. Saying that I keep playing with the incentive of trying to get to the 4th round! You can take out the end of level thing in a single pass (left, right, then middle)

 

Positions for both games will be combined to make 1 set of points (12pts max for top player)

:)
