Now if I were you … I would read the manual and learn how to call plays and hike the ball. Learn to pass…learn to run.

Learn to kick but most importantly…. Learn to score!

The Game only lasts 15 minutes so it’s not that painful.

How many points can you score?

(You must score at least 2 points to qualify)

 

Top Score Gets 6 points

2-5 5 points

6-10 4 points

11-15 3 points

16-20 2 points

Just post a score…. 1 Points

I remember playing this game for a really short time with no instruction booklet and that was very frustrating, it was impossible to score, now like 34 years later and after reading the game manual and one game of practice I beat the computer ( sorry I mean VCS )

Game 1

Score: 3420

Difficulty: B/B 

 

First time playing this game - and I'm already really liking it. I'm sure my score will improve. This is awesome. Great graphics  and gameplay. I love these types of games where you're the only hope for Earth. I'm sure the modern homebrew Juno First game was influenced by this one.

What a wonderful game! I had never played Beamrider before this morning, but I've never met a vertical shooter that I didn't like. :D

Game 1 B,B

I wasn't expecting 80k as first try. Some games I always have to improve my score all the way up every time I come back to them but it seems others become second nature.

1) 80,568

2) 90,198

Beamrider: 14572 (the actual cart for this one has been eluding me for a while)

 

Real Sports Football: 77-0 !

 

I'm actually more proud of my stout defense than my score. :) It took me a while to figure out how to get rolling on offense again, but it got going! I couldn't get the last play off to break the 80 point mark. :( By the way, when the VCS intercepts you right when you're about to get sacked, is it just me or do you feel slightly better that I pretend I just nailed them in the crotch with the ball and they're just falling down in pain?  :?  :-D

I'll get the bonus out of the way:  99-0 with 9:48 remaining on the clock.

Crap....the 99 was blinked off the screen.  I guess I'll have to play again.

You can keep playing but the score doesn't roll...it just stays at 99.

Realsports Football - 98-10

I gave up on my last possession because I couldn't remember if the score rolled over or not.

Beamrider 85732. In general, I am good in shooter games, especially in Atari 2600 but this game is causing me some issues cause the rail system ( I never played Tempest 2000 but I am assuming that is like this ) Still plenty o time to improve

(I'm TERRIBLE at this sports game. Between Football and Soccer, I prefer SOCCER, which is one of the most traditional sports in Brazil.)
