Our challenge for July is the awesome button masher: Gyruss. Play using default settings on real 5200 systems, using Atari mfg controls. Pics preferred, but not required, except for HSC wins and records. Only modern exceptions allowed are flashcarts/SD loaders using the regular cart ROM. 

Round ends when month does.

 

Current HSC record: Best the good Dr for a bonus point!

This one hurts after a while (when using the stock controllers).  Wish there was an auto-fire option!

I believe I do have an autofire hack Rom of this game, but that's for another HSC. ;) Nice score and don't hurt yourself. We have a month to play and explore these games. :)
