whatever i said about addictive games, i take it back.

shot0001.gif

i need some more experience, i didn't remembered it's that hard.

 

next time better luck, respectively when i'm home i will try it in the real hardware, 83% are only 83% ;)

since the 50Hz console produces only 83% of the speed compared to the 60Hz.

 

unfair, but legal.

Wow, literally minutes of fun in this mode. I probably played 20 games in under 5 minutes with an average score of slightly above zero. My best was 450, but I don't know if I'll have much motivation to practice more. We'll see. I'll try to upload my score later.

yup, pretty crazy for sure. Almost gets more annoying hitting the reset on the console to start another game. Could they not have it restart by touching the number again on the keypad.. lol

@Hz-Topic

I doubt it will be easier on PAL Systems. There are games that benefit, but I think it ruins the flow and its also not fixing the biggest issue, the AI. I am using Sears Arcade for this game and I think 60Hz is fine. Well, the Arcade-Stick is a HUGE advantage to be honest.

I can see that for sure... but you still have an incredible score. Even with the Arcade Stick...

My first INTV arrived today! As a former mod of this forum I am proud to own this system- now I have to learn to play Star Strike - and Tutankham is on its way

Can't wait to post my first score!

Well, like most Intellivision games, I have no idea what I'm doing...so...

 

50

 

By accident...

 

attachicon.gifjoe's star strike - 50.png

 

I have no idea what I am doing too...

 

I fired at my red shadow because I thought this is a red enemy..:

 

My Intellivision came with Star Strike, Tennis, Black Jack and Safecracker.

 

Have good memories about playing Utopia, Tutankham, Triple Action and Astrosmash in the late 80ies!

I understand this game after reading some hints from the old german magazine TeleMatch (1983):
