Update to my score, 16770.  The more I played it the less I liked it.  The randomness of the placement of the treasures and more importantly, the value of the treasure was very annoying sometimes.

Slight improvement!

 

8940

 

Another tip from my other post:

 

- Sometimes it's good to read the manual for a game (if only there was was some sort of website that hosted scans of various Atari manuals, hmmmm... :) ). You might find a tip in there or some scoring nuance or mechanism you might not know otherwise!

Thanks for a GREAT week 1!

We had so many scores posted... it might actually be a record for week 1 participation!

 

I will be giving out the bonus points sometime today and posting the overall standings on the Week 2 Cosmic Ark thread.

Good Luck and keep playing!

Technically it isn't. You did post a couple of scores back when your user name was Private Eye.

Took a season off and don’t have a Season 7 Rank…. Post a score and get 10 bonus points.
Or
Be a NEW member to the HSC (That means you have NEVER played in any season of the Atari 2600HSC) and post a score and receive DOUBLE points the first week!
 
   3670 - CobraMJD +4 (+4)


Maybe I should request to be a guy with no Season 7 rank, cause then I can get 10 bonus point, since being new with so many people gave me only 4 points.  :skull:

Next year I will have to re-think this bonus.
