  1. Yeah, given the odd way this game works, and how insanely difficult the 2nd level is, that seems fair to me.
  2. Yeah, me neither. It seems hyper-difficult platforming was invented before the NES even came out!
  3. A new season of the 5200 HSC has begun.  Come play along!  http://5200 HSC Season 13 Round 1 - Pitfall II

  4. Welcome to the first round of this 5200 HSC season! Pitfall II won the poll by one vote. Play using the default settings. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records. The current record was set by bohoki with 275,430 points. Bust it if you can for a bonus point. The ROM can be found here: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-5200-pitfall-ii-lost-caverns_s11777.html Round ends Sunday, January 26th, 2020 @9pm EST Standings: jblenkle - 159,379 roadrunner - 109,838 Mangia-Boy - 18,900
  5. Oops, forgot about this! Pitfall II is our winner.
  6. Naturally, people are going to have different experiences with these things. I’m still having a devil of a time with Stacked... the timing required in the first 30 seconds or so of it is just too exacting for me it seems. It works for me most of the time... but ”most of the time” just isn’t good enough for a million points! Perhaps another pattern might work better for me... thank you for posting those magazine patterns, NE146! Perhaps the “very forgiving” 2A pattern will be what I need... ...except that it doesn’t seem to actually work at all! Still, going to keep trying other 9th key patterns, hopefully I can find one that works well for me.

    Its Done!

    I can’t believe you finished already! Congratulations!!!
  9. Sure, I will do that at some point this weekend! Um, has nobody seen one of these before?
  10. Colors seem the same (noting that Asteroids randomizes the asteroid colors)
  11. I don't think it is. It came from a North American seller and doesn't roll on my 80's Montgomery Ward TV.
  12. For what it’s worth, there IS also a true silver label Atari Inc version of Asteroids. I feel very lucky to have picked it up in an EBay lot, even though the condition isn’t the greatest.
  13. As much as I usually prefer the classics of 78-84 over just about anything else, I reluctantly have to give the nod to Galaga 88/90. Just a spectacular game.
