HSC Season #3 - Game #1 Beamrider

Recommended Posts

We are back for the regular HSC season, and let's start it off by riding the beam, shall we, Beamrider style...

 

This Activision classic features progressive difficulty, and what might be a push over on the first couple of levels can be a real MAJOR challenge as the game goes on. Who will be the ultimate beamrider?

 

Scores can be posted until Sunday, June 24th, 2012 at 10:30am Eastern time. Good luck to everyone!

This is the game I am worst at, all ports... I can't play well on emulator anyway...

Never owned Beamrider. I did have a 5200 version, but I hadn't the console yet lol.

 

Ready for the new season though!

I'm not too familiar with this game, so not expecting to do too well here...!

 

I'm a bit confused with the HSC Seasons. Wasn't the Winter romp we just finished called Season 3? Shouldn't that make this one Season 4? :?

A struggle and a slow agony... I don't GET this game or how anyone can be good at it!

 

Drives my patience to no end. I think I hate this game... :mad:

We played this one on the ColecoVision HSC awhile back...the more you practice, the better you get. It can be very frustrating at times though.

I didn't have time to play this until today so this will probably be my only score. But i just had to put in an attempt. This game rocks. I'm new to this game. Played it once for season 1 but that was on emulation. The controller i was using sucked and for some reason it made my eyes hurt playing it on my monitor. Now i finally own the cart and what a difference. Controls so great and it doesn't hurt my eyes. Maybe because now i'm 10 feet away from the screen instead of 2. :-D

I quite like this game now that I've got into it a bit more, but I agree that there's nothing better than playing a game in its natural environment - on a console.

I'm new to the Intellivision HSC. I played the 5200 one a couple of years back. I'm a poor videogame scorer, but I make sure to play every game and to submit a score. Looking forward to playing most of the INTV library for the first time.

My summer plans may make it difficult to participate in the HSC for the next month or so, but I figured I'd at least get something on the board. Before tonight I don't think I'd played Beamrider more than once or twice, but it seems reasonably fun.

My first ever attempt? I don't remeber playing this game for intellivision. I had a friend that had the atari 2600 version.

I played a few times but never got into this game.

 

So, I am happy with this attempt.13,200

Wish I had time to have played this instead of this token one game just now on the emu. Have to agree with others who mentioned it but on an emulator the game is just not the same. Also some objects are hard to even see. Haven't played the game on the Intv console yet but did play the Coleco version in the HSC and the feel of the game is quite different in emulated form and I'd imagine the same case here on the Intv. I think I am going to find my copy and have a go. Very fun game.

 

Good score jbenkle!!

29,290 Sector 12 (I'll post a pic later on if I don't get a higher score later)

 

This is my first HSC, but I think I'm going to like this. Collecting is fun, but this really gets you playing.

 

What's the next game?
