  1. As of today, December 22, 2017, the first season of the Arcadia High Score Club is wrapping up. The first two rounds were played on the Arcadia Yahoo Group. During season 3 of the Arcadia HSC, the rules were posted to both the Atari Age forums and the Yahoo group. The current round (round 7) gives everyone a chance to catch-up on games they haven't played yet or games that they would like to play again for a higher score. Here is a link to the catch-up round rules: http://http//atariage.com/forums/topic/273285-catch-up-round-for-arcadia-2001-high-score-club-season-1-round-7/ It has become important for non-Yahoo group members to be able to see the rules for the first two rounds, so I'm posting them again here on the AtariAge forums. The following rules for the second round's game, Space Attack, were originally posted on October 10, 2017 to the Yahoo group. If you're a Yahoo groups member, then you can read the rules here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/arcadia2001consoles/conversations/messages/2586 Here is the original post: Season 1, Round 2 of the Arcadia 2001/MPT-03 High Score Club will last about two weeks rather than one week, as I'm going to try to get some players from the AtariAge forums to play along with us. This round ends on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at 10pm MST (aka Monday, 2am GMT). The game being played this round is Emerson's cartridge #2, Space Attack, a "slide and shoot" game, similar to Galaxian. Here is a screenshot of Space Attack being played on my NTSC Emerson Arcadia console: Here is the box for Space Attack: Here is the cartridge for the Emerson version of Space Attack: Space Attack - Quick-Play Rules When Space Attack begins, your ship ("missile launcher") appears off-screen on the right-side. This is a weird quirk of this game and is normal. You can't play until you move your ship left onto the screen; be careful not to move left and run right into an enemy or their missiles. Play Space Attack for high score on real hardware (PAL, NTSC, and any Arcadia family systems) or use the WinArcadia or MAME emulator. If you're using WinArcadia for emulation to play this Space Attack, then I recommend turning off the extra graphics that give the game additional stars. To do that, choose Options > Graphics and then uncheck "Enhance Skies." Visit the Emerson Arcadia 2001 Central website for cartridge images and Arcadia emulators: https://amigan.yatho.com/ Here is a direct link to the Arcadia 2001 ROM images ("SpaceAttack-A.bin" is the filename for Space Attack): https://amigan.yatho.com/games.rar Post pictures of your high scores here. There are no options for this game, so everyone will automatically be playing by the same rules. Use the right-hand controller to play the game. The fire button shoots your missile. You can "freeze" (pause) the game by pressing the left-hand column of keys. You can "un-freeze" the game by pressing the right-hand column. Space Attack - General Overview I'm using Ward Shrake's "Director's Cut" of his Arcadia 2001 section of the Digital Press Collector's Guide 7 (published in August 2002) for most of the information that is in this section. Space Attack. Emerson. Confirmed. 4k cart. 1982. #1013 (2). Unauthorized clone of the arcade game "Galaxian". One player game; uses right side controller. Long cartridge. Game by "UA Limited. Emerson family labels depict unlicensed spacecraft from the "Star Wars" series of movies: a "Snow Speeder" and the " Millennium Falcon". Ward's guess is that this game was likely the second game the console's makers intended to release at launch time, to help to sell the global public on their new game console. Reviewed by Electronic Games magazine in November 1982; see the time line FAQ for the full text of that article. There is also a June 1982 article from a U.K.-based magazine there. That article openly used the name Galaxian when saying they intended to make a clone. A hidden ASCII message found inside the ROM code of this game: "To my wife Daisy and my son Jonathan From Choi Andrew Jul 1982 Galax.002". This is interesting on a number of levels. The date is barely one year after this same person put a message in the Interton VC-4000 game "Shoot Out," dated March of 1981. This may show that there was a big rush to get the initial Arcadia 2001 games all finished up. The "Galax.002" name is pretty obviously a reference to the arcade game Galaxian. Space Attack - Manual High quality scans of Space Attack box, manual, and cartridge are here: https://archive.org/details/SpaceAttackforEmersonArcadia2001 (I don't think that there is an overlay for this game; it certainly doesn't need one.) For complete information about this game, visit the above link. I've included the important points form the manual here: What Space Attack is All About The goal is to score as many points as possible. Points are gained by shooting down the invading enemy space ships with your missiles. The enemy space ships will fire rockets back at your missile launchers which you must avoid. Watch out for enemy space ships that will try to crash into your missile launcher. On the bottom-left side of the screen is located a fuel gauge to indicate the fuel of the missile in combat. When the gauge is indicating empty, a warning signal is heard. If the missile launcher continues fighting when the gauge indicates empty, the missile launcher explodes and the next one continues the combat. The number that is located on the bottom right side of the screen indicate the group of attackers, after group 1 is eliminated the second group of attacker appears on the screen and the number change to 2. The firing from the enemy space ships will be more and more intensive as the group number becomes greater. How to Play Space Attack This is a one player game which uses the RIGHT Hand Controller. Press "START." The enemy space ships will move and fire rockets at your missile launcher. Some of the enemy space ships will fly directly at your missile launcher. Avoid the incoming rockets and the enemy spaceships by moving your missile launcher to the left or right, using the disc or joystick control. Fire your missiles at the enemy spaceships by pressing the Action button on the side of your controller or keyboard buttons at middle column. The missile launcher will be eliminated when a missile hits it, or when it collides with a space ship. Another missile launcher will automatically appear. You start with three missile launchers. The missile launchers you have left are shown at the bottom-right corner. The game ends when all your missile launchers are destroyed. When your missiles have shot down all the enemy spaceships, a new squadron of spaceships appears and you continue to shoot them down. You receive an extra missile launcher as a bonus if you reach 5,000 points. Scoring Summary In formation In Flight 1st Row 2 Ships 60 points 200 points 2nd Row 5 Ships 50 points 100 points 3rd Row 7 Ships 40 points 80 points 4th Row 9 Ships 30 points 60 points 5th Row 9 Ships 30 points 60 points 6th Row 9 Ships 30 points 60 points If the final score is the highest achieved it will be automatically transferred to the upper-right side score when the "START" button is pressed for a new game. If it is not the highest score it will disappear. You will erase the Hi score if you push either the "RESET" or "POWER" buttons. You may enjoy demonstration mode by pressing the "Select" push button until the bottom/right side of the screen appears D1. Then the demonstration mode will begin automatically. Space Attack Gameplay Options There are no gameplay options for this game. Simply turn the game on and start to play it. That's easy enough, right? Space Attack (Scoring) We are playing for the highest score. 10 points are awarded for first place, 9 for second, 8 for third, etc. Bonus Points There are a few ways to earn bonus points: Space Attack - Video Review - (1 Point) - Although I found examples of gameplay footage for this cartridge, I couldn't find any reviews. Anyone who makes a video review of Space Attack will get a bonus point. Space Attack - Documenting Bugs - (1 Point) - Arcadia games can be flaky. If anyone find any problems, and documents them, then you'll earn one bonus point. Just in case there are dozens of bugs, you can only earn one bonus point no matter how matter bugs are found. Space Attack - Backstory - (1 Point) - I can't believe that Space Attack doesn't have any backstory at all. Anyone who writes a storyline for this game will get a bonus point. Are you a human on a mission to save Earth, or an alien on a mission to destroy it? Are you a lost pilot trying to find your way home, or... well, use your imagination and entertain us all! Summary of this Round As you play Space Attack, your energy level depletes pretty quickly. I've not played this game much yet, but from what I've played so far, I have not been able to complete a level without blowing up when my ship runs out of energy. I really don't like this feature of the game. Is there a way to gain energy, or to lose it more slowly? The first round of the Arcadia HSC was an experiment. We had six players, which was better than I expected. Can we get more people to compete this time? If you know of anyone who might like to compete in this round, then please let them know to stop by and play with us. I asked Albert on AtariAge if he'd start an Arcadia HSC forum, but I have not heard back for a week [or now, in late December]. Even if I don't hear back from him, then I'm going to just post the HSC rules for round two in the general classic gaming section in a couple of days. As always, as you play Space Attack, post pictures of your scores as the round progresses. You don't have to be a great game player (or even a good one) to participate; this is just a fun way to get us to play our Arcadia/MPT-03 game consoles-- which is what they're for, right? If you've not played in a round before, then now's the time to join in! Have a fun second round, everyone... and blast those baddies! Adam
  2. Since I've been playing them all over the last few days, I thought I'd give my list of my favorite first-person space shooters. I should start by saying that Star Raiders on the Atari 800 is my all-time favorite video game on any system ever. And it has been since I first played it way back in the 1980's. No other game has pulled me in like Star Raiders on the 800 did, making me feel like I really was flying around in a space ship fighting evil aliens. So, for the 2600, a lot of what makes me like the space shooters there are how well they compare to the original Star Raiders. Does this mean that the 2600 version of Star Raiders is my favorite on that system? Not necessarily... This is not an all-inclusive list of space simulations on the 2600; I know there are others. But these are the ones that I tend to play the most and are my Top Five. Here they are in descending order: 5. Star Voyager (Imagic) Star Voyager is decent, but a bit plain. I love how you can select between lasers or photon torpedos, although having to use the right dificulty switch to do it means that you can't do it as quickly or as often as you might like. Besides which, I've never really figured out a good strategy for using one over the other. Like most of these games, you can warp from one sector to the next for your battles, however there is no "galactic map". Instead you simply warp by flying through the star portals which appear, and you can't choose to navigate to different sectors; you simply move to the next level. The worst part of this game are the colored borders around the screen. I really HATE them! They totally take you out of the simulation and remind you that you're playing a game and just really seem out of place to me. Generally speaking the graphics on this game are the worst of the bunch, simpler and more blocky. Star Voyager (and all Imagic games) does get bonus points for the coolest box and cartridge artwork. It also gets bonus points for having a couple of two-player modes, something none of the others have. 4. Space Attack (M-Network) The Atari version of Intellivision Space Battle is fun and a good port of the original. Unlike all of the other games in this list, in Space Attack you have more than one ship battling the bad guys. In fact, you have fleets of ships that you must send out to meet the alien fleets. When one of your fleets meets one of theirs, you do battle. Unfortunately, sending out your fleets is much more complicated on the Atari than it is on the Intellivision, as the Intelly version made good use of the keypad on the controllers. I wish the Atari version had shipped with a keypad controller like Star Raiders did! That said, it is very fun to have to manage the multiple fleets, especially with the "A" difficulty set which lets the computer manage some of the battles while you're fighting others. In battle mode, Space Attack is the least simulator-like of all of these games. The star field is colorful (love that!), but static. Instead of moving through space, you simply move your gunsight around the screen, avoiding the enemy fire when it turns red (if it touches your gunsight, you lose a ship from your fleet). Learning to "lead" the enemy ships with your fire takes some practice, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward. If you really like Space Attack, you need to play the original Space Battle on the Intellivision. If you can handle the INTV's hand-cramping controllers, you'll enjoy that game quite a bit. 3. Star Raiders (Atari) Oh, I had such hopes for this game! Having loved the original version on the Atari 800, I knew that this one wouldn't be as good (how could it be on the more limited 2600 hardware?), but I figured it would come the closest. Plus, it shipped with the very cool Video Touch Pad (the old Atari keypad controller with an overlay), which would make accessing the various features much more easy than on the other games here, which all rely on the 2600's various console switches. So some of the features were changed or missing; the aft view (which I almost never used) and the slick little animation where the astronaut floats out to meet you at the starbase. I can live without those. And the galactic map is far smaller with many fewer sectors. But some other changes seemed less necessary but more glaring. Your targeting crosshairs are now a long horizontal line across the screen. And the flicker! Why so much flicker?? Far more than on any of the other games here. Perhaps because Star Raiders tends to have a lot more on the screen than the other games (except Phaser Patrol, but that's a different story...) Also, if you read the manual, the backstory has been changed as well. You're now fighting "Krylons" instead of "Zylons", for example. Weird. One of my big problems with Star Raiders is the movement of the aliens. They seem to fly only in loops, moving towards you and then back away, and hitting them is just a matter of timing your left-and-right shots to intercept them. And while the movement of the stars across the screen is very well done, overall everything seems just a bit too jerky and not smooth enough. Again, I wonder if that's because of all the stuff on the screen at once. Trying to emulate the original a little too closely may have been the problem here. In fact, that may really be my biggest issue with the game. It's too easy to compare it to the original and it suffers for it. Taken for what it is, it is very fun, it does a good job of simulating space battles and has most of the features I love on the original. You have to protect your space stations by attacking the aliens closest to them, you have to manage your energy reserves and dock to replenish them, and you can lose or damage systems like your shields or targetting computer and engines. 2. Phaser Patrol (Starpath) It seems almost unfair to include Phaser Patrol, since it requires the Starpath Supercharger, which gives the game more RAM and better graphics to use. It has as much detail on the screen as Star Raiders, however none of the flicker. It also uses the extra memory to good effect, with a much larger galactic map (including sectors where you have no knowledge of what's in them until you warp to them), and a gorgeous colorful starfield in the battle mode. Sadly, the stars don't fly past your cockpit in this game, but they do scroll left and right and up and down as you fly around. Of all of these games, Phaser Patrol is probably most similar to the original Star Raiders (as well as to the 2600 version) with a sector map, long range scanner, a targeting computer, and shields; and it has the coolest Atari 2600 animation I think I've ever seen as you activate or deactivate your shields! The shields slowly collapse from the top and bottom of the screen, making the black of space look dark grey instead. It's a really need effect. The targetting computer is also more advanced here, giving you the distance to the aliens as well as the ability to "lock on" to one of them. If you fire when the torpedo sight turns red, your torpedos will chase the aliens across the screen to hit them. Really the only negative about this game is the fact that the starfield doesn't whiz past your cockpit as you fly. Had they included that effect, I think this game would be number one on my list. 1. Starmaster (Activision) Now, I admit that Starmaster probably has the most sparse graphics of all of these games. Activision definitely kept it simple on this game, but it works very well. In fact, so well that this is my favorite of the bunch. Like the others, you have a galactic chart as well as your cockpit view. And you have aliens from which you must protect your starbases. You do have shields, but no way to turn them on or off manually, and there is no change in the graphics to indicate when they're off, except an "S" which appears on your damage computer. But, like the other games, you never really want to turn them off, so this is not an issue for me. The graphics are sparse, as I said, but very smooth and fast. There aren't many stars to see, but they whip past your cockpit as you fly. The aliens as well whip around the screen as they shoot at you and dodge your fire, occasionally coming close to you (making them much easier to hit). Much of Starmaster is a pure shoot-em-up with fast gameplay and graphics, but you do have to use some strategy, particularly managing your energy reserves and trying to kill of the enemies closest to your starbases. If you lose all your energy or all your starbases (or take a hit without shields), it's game over. In gameplay, I think Starmaster stands up best to the original Star Raiders, even if it doesn't match it feature-for-feature, and for this reason it is my favorite of the bunch.
  3. Season 1, Round 7 of the Arcadia 2001/MPT-03 High Score Club will last about two weeks. This round ends on Sunday, December 31, 2017 at 10pm MST (aka Monday, 2am GMT). The next game was going to be Space Vultures, but then I remembered that we still have not had a catch-up round. In this catch-up round, you can play any game that was played during rounds 1-6 and post your scores in this thread. Note, although rounds one and two of this HSC were only posted about on the Arcadia Yahoo group, those two games are fair to play here in the AtariAge foums. If you've never visited to Arcadia Yahoo group, you can find it here (note that you must be a member in order to read messages there): https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/arcadia2001consoles/info There are no chances to score bonus points in this round; simply play for high scores. Here are the games we've played so far: S1, R1: Cat Trax - Cat Trax, a maze game similar to Pac-Man. Read more about this Cat Trax on the Arcadia group here: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/arcadia2001consoles/conversations/messages/2556 S1, R2: Space Attack - Space Attack, a "slide and shoot" game, similar to Galaxian. Read more about this Space Attack on the Arcadia group: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/arcadia2001consoles/conversations/messages/2586 S1, R3: Escape - You have to play this game a few times in order to "get" its design, which is similar looking to Berzerk, but rather different once you get into the nitty-gritty of the game. Read more about this Escape here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/271509-arcadia-2001mpt-03-high-score-club-round-3-escape/ S1, R4: Funky Fish - Funky Fish is an unreleased game (in the United States) for the Emerson Arcadia 2001. It is a home port of a hard-to-find arcade game released in 1981 by Sun Electronics. Read more about this Funky Fish here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/271841-arcadia-2001mpt-03-high-score-club-round-4-funky-fish/ S1, R5: Space Raiders - Space Raiders is a side-scrolling game, a bit like Defender… except there is no one to defend except yourself. Although Space Raiders has a generic title and also has semi-generic gameplay, the game itself is fun. Read more about this Space Raiders here: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/272260-space-raiders-for-arcadia-2001-high-score-club-season-1-round-5/ S1, R6: Brain Quiz - Brain Quiz contains three educational/math-type games: Mindbreaker (Mastermind), Maxit (pretty fun!), and Hangman. Read more about this Brain Quiz here: http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/272810-brain-quiz-for-arcadia-2001-high-score-club-season-1-round-6 If you haven't played in the Arcadia High Score club, then now is the perfect chance to jump in and have fun!

  4. Arcadia HSC Season 1: Final Standings Season 1 of the Arcadia 2001/MPT-03 High Score Club ended on December 21, 2017. Here are the final total points (including bonus points) for the Rounds 1-6 and the additional round 7 catch-up points: 1st James Jacobs 60 2nd Tempest 33 + 24 = 57 3rd BallyAlley 56 4th Darrin9999 14 + 23 = 37 4th Mark Canon 37 5th Skylar Canon 22 6th Christopher Tompkins 12 7th Milo Canon 14 8th Chris++ 10 Congratulations to James for winning the first season of the Arcadia High Score Club! Special notice to Tempest who worked his way up from fourth place to second place from points awarded in the catch-up round. He pushed me from second place down to third place. That's cool; it's all about the fun of playing the game! Catch-up round points were awards in a way that did not disrupt the other player's previous scores. This was done to make it easier on me, so that I would not have to recalculate all people's scores. Darrin9999 got an additional 23 points in the catch-up round. Tempest got an additional 24 points in the catch-up round. It's possible that I'm confused with some people's AtariAge handles and their names. If I've got you on the above list more than once (under a different names, handle or alias), then let me know. I'm doing all of this adding by hand. For season 2, I need to work out a system to use a spreadsheet to do these totals semi-automatically. Highest Scores (Rounds 1-6) Round 1: Cat Trax - Mark Canon - 60,000 Round 2: Space Attack - James Jacobs - 12,460 Round 3: Escape - Darrin9999 - 17,440 Round 4: Funky Fish - Tempest - 112,275 Round 5: Space Raiders - James Jacobs - 4,160 Round 6: Brain Quiz - Ballyalley and Tempest - 10 Note: Round 6 was a participation-only round. Maximum points were earned for playing all three games (and Hangman with two players). Top Scores for Rounds 1-6 Here are the final high scores for each of the six rounds.

I wasn't sure who would play the mostly-unknown Arcadia 2001 console. Thanks to those special classic console lovers who participated. I'll see you all in season 2, round 1 soon, where we'll be playing Space Vultures, a clone of the arcade game Phoenix. Adam
  5. The following was Inspired by reading up on Space Battle for the Intellivision and after discovering that Space Attack for the Atari VCS works on the VCS emulator for the Jaguar. What has always fascinated me was how this was supposed to be a Battlestar Galactica game. For years this game eluded me, but once you understand to start the game by moving the joystick, and the deploying your squadrons by holding down the button and pushing left, right, and up to launch, it becomes much easier at that point. Strangely it was the X-Wing Commander hack that worked on the Jaguar and those changes inspired me to really dig into the Space Attack rom, changing sprites to give a more look and feel, coloring matching the enemy ships, the radar screen, and other aspects with show screen shots. Changing the enemy fire from red to blue, and many other changes. Honorable mention is the 2008 fan hack of Space Attack to Battlestar Galactica. Good to see there is other BSG fans out there, and also glad that we have perhaps hacking tools over the last ten years. For all of you who loved the show like I did, or just would like an altered version of Space Attack, here we go! Battlestar Galactica-DC R01.bin Perhaps later I'll adjust the firing sound, but until then enjoy!
