HSC8 Round 5: Berzerk

Recommended Posts

Has anybody ever gotten 5 lives in Berzerk (4 extra plus current life)? I was soooo close. I had three extra lives, 9850 points and only one robot left to kill. Bonus would have been 110 points, which, with the 50 for killing the robot would have put me over 10,000 for the bonus life. I moved over the top of the wall to kill the last guy, but stupidly went one pixel too high, allowing him to kill me. (yes, I swore very loudly when that happened)

 

Here's some Christmas music to go along with your tree and lights. :)

Sadly (or perhaps, thankfully) I can't see what Christmas music you're posting. I use BeOS for browsing and it doesn't do embedded flash.

Thought I'd entered a parallel universe for a while there but it all makes sense now I've read the previous posts :D So Mr.A thinks it's Christmas every day... that explains everything... (I bet he wraps up presents for himself too) ;)

 

You'll be pleased to hear that my Berzerk scores are getting lower :x

How'd you guess? No, it's just the Christmas lights. I like the multi-coloured lighting. There's no tree, no presents and no carollers tied up in the basement, forced to sing endless Christmas songs.

You know, I think therealbountybob adds these lame side games just so that he can be the winner of the one nobody wants to play.

Gotta have some way of winning the hat-trick of back to back HSC titles to equal the almighty Fandal... had to have the last challenger removed from the entire forum, then there's this Deteacher guy who keeps playing too much... gotta wait for him to go on holiday and cram in 10 games that week :D (Seriously if anyone is away this season let me know and I'll sort out a grace period) :)

It's Mariah Carey singing All I Want For Christmas Is You.

Merry Christmas! :)

Actually, I'm on Spring Break this coming week and I'll be home the whole time, so I hope to boost my scores up even more. Watch out. :)

K-Razy Shoot-Out

3,410

 

How do you get your rank or title in this game that most people seem to be posting? Was it by pressing shift and 1, or ctrl and 1 at the end of a game? Or does TRBB assign them? :)

Okay, now I see it. My screen froze on the last game and never displayed my rank. The second game, the screen kept going.

 

K-Razy Shoot-Out

4,660

Rank: Goon Class 4

Used 2 casings if that counts for anything.

Robots kept appearing on me and killing me. Does anyone else have this issue? I guess it's best to stay towards the middle of the screen. This shooter shoots from the opposite side of his body than the shooter in Berzerk, so it takes a little getting used to. But I love the low-fi sounds and screen effects.

18500 was what I got on Krazy Shoot out so far.

I'll post a screenshot for this one later today since this one

moves me up out of my normal basement level score. :)

But got a screen shot finally.

Attached my very low Berzerk score as well. :roll:

Didn't last too long, though. It gets too tough when you're getting shot at from all directions. I'm going to break 20K if it kills me.

That red glowing dot gives it a weird "Tron-like" look. I like it.

Very impressive. What joystick are you using? (...and are you sure that emulator is running at full speed? ;))

Thanks!

That red, glowing dot is from the flash on my wife's camera, which I don't know how to shut off. I have some learning to do. But I like the Tron explanation better. Much better.

Well, full speed on my machine is about 1,500% at full screen. I'm running my emulator at 100% :) I'm using my trusty CX-40 with the Stelladaptor. :)

Quite a few games use seem to use Control and 1 (same as in BASIC) for pause instead of the regular escape or space bar (don't know if this is down to the language they are written in?) :)

 

p.s. Way to go littlemanjack :thumbsup:

 

new tables later on...
