High Score Competition (October: Midnite Mason)

Recommended Posts

August Bounce'n'Pounce results:

187,706 - jwild

85,432 - MarkSetGo

68,178 - globeron

46,822 - arcadeshopper

38,514 - jblenkle

38,300 - ti99iuc

12,090 - roadrunner

 

Well done everyone!  I'm thrilled that you all played.  Not many of you discovered that smashing zero cars in a season awards 50,000 bonus points!  I probably should have said that sooner...

 

@jwild, your turn to choose the game for September.

Does zero mean in 4 rounds to get 200,000 ?

(how is the game called then "zigzag and collect" or zero hero

@PeteE  i managed to get 1 level done without hitting cars, but even avoiding to hit cars is difficult! Nice two ways to play the game.

Classic 99 + joy2key mapping + joystick

98.000

 

Very addicted game. Good game play. 

Joystick gives better gameplay than keys I find.

 

What I do not understand how to enter initials (I press with the mouse at the bottom and enter characters, but I do not see a Keyboard or so). Not sure how this works.

You know it's a fun game when it breaks your joystick!

 

I guess I'm done here!

 

too bad!

 

In my MAME setup I don't have a game controller, so I am trying to play WZ2 with keys... after each game my hand is sore! 😞

If you find a Joystick-USB adapter you can nicely play with an Atari-like joystick in MAME. I do.

I'd like to post the following score, which is my best attempt at 50Hz (PAL). So I guess it's not a fair entry for the compo, but maybe it qualifies for the 50hz (PAL) category! 🙂

 

82800, Lev. 3, area 1

 

I really would like a separate ranking to be maintained for 50Hz play, because:

  1. many of us euro-people only have 50hz real TI... and you know for many people including me, even though we have really excellent emulators, almost perfect, the sensation of using the real iron is something special
  2. right now I can attach a joystick only to my real, 50hz, TI 🙂

However, I am the only one interested, it really does not make sense! :-D

to enter initials, on the real TI I used the keyboard! 🙂

however it is necessary to press the keys longer that it's usually (in TI Basic for instance) needed

Many thanks to jwild: his choice of the game of the month made me discover this wonderful jem of  TI games!

Fantastic game!

This is also the 1st game played where I got RSI and could not move my arm anymore.  I even changed to another Joystick controller, but did not play that well as the Suzo Arcade Joystick DB9 joystick.  ( 

 

 

 

for DB9 to USB  connection I am using this handy one  (and software Joy2Key  on Windows to map the directions / button) 

https://joy.sophics.cz/dual-joystick-usb-adapter/

 

 

 

Or get something like this with USB adapter:
