TI-99/4A High Score Competition

 

April 2021 Game of the Month

 

SUPERSTORM

 

I have no idea how to play, but I tried it just enough to detect some depth and maybe some strategy.

Good Luck!

Damn, shame I missed Moon Mine, I'm pretty good at that game. I don't have Superstorm but will keep an eye to see what next Months game is. I'm not that good at many but will be fun to have some scores to compete with again. We used to write down a high scores list for the games back in the day, now that's old school😃

Well now I have finalgrom I should be able to take part in most of these🙂 

 

This particular one is a game I have never played or even seen before. I have absolutely no idea what the hell is going on. Looked on YouTube but couldn't find much on there. Anyone give me the lowdown?

 

Seems a bonkers game but hopefully a good one if I can make sense of it all.

 

Anyway here is my high score for now...

Here's a copy of the manual for Slime (the original title for the game on Atari computers) that I found on the Atarimania site. We probably need to make a modified version in the Atarisoft format for the TI cartridge, as no manual for that one has ever surfaced.

I think it is so cool you found this manual. How did you know it was based off of the Atari game? Did you play Slime in the past?

Random research, @jwild. BITD, the references to the TI version also used both names at random (as if they hadn't decided on the final name yet, so one article used one and the next used the other). I remembered that, so I went a-hunting. . .and verified my suspicions during my search. BITD, a lot of folks thought the references were for two different games, LOLOL.

mmhh I post this just to participate to this month's game.

Yesterday I read the manual, now the game starts to make sense to me... but it's hard!

This game is interesting to me, as one of those games which has a "perfectionist" sort of challenge model, where your goal is getting a perfect or near-perfect setup as often as possible, and the dropoff in score and survivability resulting from non-optimal setups is huge.  That's not entirely good or entirely bad.  Just a bit uncommon.

I need to have another go at this now I have an idea as to what is about. Will try and have a go tonight.

Well even knowing what  trying to go this game seems brutal. My best attempt which annoyingly I lost two ships from the off to those meteorites that seem impossible to avoid.

 

Interesting game, but certainly a tough one.

 

3800.

Fair play to jwild and pixelpendant, amazing scores!

Maybe now I am starting to understand how to play this game. I think you cannot avoid fireballs... if they are fired against your ship.

But it's too late, here is my best score so far.

Congratulations to jwild and pixelpedant!

The game is tough, as Tetlee says, and also frustrating. Makes me desire to have the TI Invaders ship, to wipe out all the slime and those damn flying saucers 🙂

:-D
