Season 1, Round 7 of the Arcadia 2001/MPT-03 High Score Club will last about two weeks. This round ends on Sunday, December 31, 2017 at 10pm MST (aka Monday, 2am GMT). The next game was going to be Space Vultures, but then I remembered that we still have not had a catch-up round. In this catch-up round, you can play any game that was played during rounds 1-6 and post your scores in this thread. Note, although rounds one and two of this HSC were only posted about on the Arcadia Yahoo group, those two games are fair to play here in the AtariAge foums.
If you've never visited to Arcadia Yahoo group, you can find it here (note that you must be a member in order to read messages there):
There are no chances to score bonus points in this round; simply play for high scores. Here are the games we've played so far:
S1, R1: Cat Trax - Cat Trax, a maze game similar to Pac-Man. Read more about this Cat Trax on the Arcadia group here: https://groups.yahoo...s/messages/2556
S1, R2: Space Attack - Space Attack, a "slide and shoot" game, similar to Galaxian. Read more about this Space Attack on the Arcadia group: https://groups.yahoo...s/messages/2586
S1, R3: Escape - You have to play this game a few times in order to "get" its design, which is similar looking to Berzerk, but rather different once you get into the nitty-gritty of the game. Read more about this Escape here: http://atariage.com/...round-3-escape/
S1, R4: Funky Fish - Funky Fish is an unreleased game (in the United States) for the Emerson Arcadia 2001. It is a home port of a hard-to-find arcade game released in 1981 by Sun Electronics. Read more about this Funky Fish here: http://atariage.com/...d-4-funky-fish/
S1, R5: Space Raiders - Space Raiders is a side-scrolling game, a bit like Defender… except there is no one to defend except yourself. Although Space Raiders has a generic title and also has semi-generic gameplay, the game itself is fun. Read more about this Space Raiders here: http://atariage.com/...ason-1-round-5/
S1, R6: Brain Quiz - Brain Quiz contains three educational/math-type games: Mindbreaker (Mastermind), Maxit (pretty fun!), and Hangman. Read more about this Brain Quiz here: http://www.atariage....eason-1-round-6
If you haven't played in the Arcadia High Score club, then now is the perfect chance to jump in and have fun!
