The fact that everything is almost 40 years old is amazing! Time goes too fast.... I want to relive my Atari days as a kid!

Space Jockey 112945 points, it was so monotonous that sometimes It feels like torture. If someone else scores more points than me I won't do anything to recover that first spot.

GO HIGHER ON SPACE JOCKEY!

Beat the boredom and go higher!

 

 Damn you and your dangling bonus points in front of me!  :-D

 80XXX (who cares what the last digits are!)

 

I somehow remember this one being hard when I was a kid.  :sleep:

Spacechase: 11300

 

May or may not revisit this one again later in the week.

 

I remember impulse buying this game within the past few years, because I thought the label looked coooool. Disappointed in the actual game.

Let the grind begin!

 

Space Jockey game 1 A/A: 20,010 w/six lives remaining:

spacejockey20010+6.jpg

 

Space Jockey game 1 A/A: 40,770

spacejockey40770.jpg

 

Spacechase game 1 A/A: 12,375

spacechase12375.jpg

 

I've owned both of these since back-in-the-day... I'm not sure why I ever bought Space Jockey. Maybe because I thought the graphics were cool.

 

Spacechase though... I'm actually one of the few people who like this game. :ponder:

 

My 2600's reset switch is starting to flip out though, so I'm going to have to replace that before I do much more of this.

This game kind of reminds me of Laser Blast

Spacechase 

Game 1

Score: 4900

Difficulty: A/A

 

I never had nor played this game as a kid. Having just now played Space Jockey and Spacechase back-to-back, I have to say I like Spacechase a little better. I think I'm going to leave Space Jockey alone, but I may try this one again tomorrow and try to improve this score - which I should be able to do.

I don't find Space Jockey to be easy yet, and I'm used to the speed of Kaboom!.    :?

I bought Space Jockey last year and I found versions where enemies move randomly to be more fun.

This was a tough version until you figure out where you are safe. Space Chase is fun, but the collision detection seems bad and the diagonal missiles are tough to deal with.

Space Jockey 20050 + 6 lives
Space Chase 12950

Space Jockey Blah... 20k 6 lives

Serously... people paid $20+ for this game back in the day. No wonder people stopped buying games and the crash happened.

 

 

 

Spacechase - 22450

So whoever created this game said to himself... 'I know... I will make 5 enemies appear at 10k... that will make this game different.... then 6 enemies appear .... genius!'.

Worse than chewing on tin foil, not as bad as playing with that puzzle box from Hell Raiser. Never let it be said I'm not willing to suffer for the bonus points. Anyone want it worse than I? Go ahead, I dare you. ;)
