You may now start to play Week 2 ~ Battlezone.

I posted it a day early because I will be very busy tomorrow and will not have time.

 

You may still play Burgertime until Sunday at Midnight.

 

I will be updating the standings every Monday or Tuesday.

Please let me know if there are mistakes.... I am old and feeble.  :?

 

GOOD LUCK! I suck at Burgertime but I am good at Battlezone!

Guess I'll have to practice this one a bit...

Question.

In the sit & Spin mode, if you decided to spin clockwise, Can you change to counterclockwise or you have to maintain that direction?

You can go both ways. Just don't move forward or backwards.

Wow! Oyama is taking it easy out of the gate! I guess this is a marathon, not a sprint. I'm sure he will be around at the end.

My BONUS score was better than my regular score, so I am submitting this for BOTH.  65000.

 

That puts me near my best already, so this will be a short week for me...

Same thing happened to me for a while. I couldnt beat my Sit n Spin score.

I cannot seem to find the perfect way to turn around bullets, I can only do it semi regularly when the Tamks are at greater than half the distance on the radar.

Yeah, far as I can tell, close range = death.  If they are in the distance I back up and turn hard then throttle forward.  If I'm lucky then the shot goes glancing by.  My luck sucks.

50,000 Didn't capture my rather unremarkable score -- sorry.

BONUS: 40,000. A little embarrassing that I almost scored as much in the spinning game.
