5200 HSC Season 8 Round 19 Beamrider

Recommended Posts

Our game for round 19 is Beamrider. Play on default settings. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. A8 version allowed if that is all you have. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends Sunday, November 15th 2015 @9pm EST

32,436.

 

This is the first time I have ever had the patience to get better at Beamrider. Back in the day, it seemed like a poor man's Tempest to me, and it frustrated me. I have been enjoying the game more. How many new enemies keep coming? The unstoppable goats head things and then the red squares just showed up (they turn to green squares when you shoot them). How I fume when I have a bunch of lives built up, yet my mothership shot is BLOCKED and I get no bonus points that round!

69,484

Life sometimes gets in the way of serious gaming, still I couldn't sit this one out.

After failing to enter the winning score twice earlier in the year, I figured I had better defend my favorite game best I could .

In a strange twist, the record holder appeared and snatched away a victory. Congrats to peedenmark7 :thumbsup: Competition was high this round as we approach the end of another great season in the HSC. Thanks to all who played and be sure to join our final round: Gyruss beginning soon...

Standings updated. :)

I actually scored a bit higher (46,000 or so) but didn't post it (doesn't change my ranking). This is one game I really can't get good at. It might be partly due to playing using a Dreamcast controller and emulation - I am constantly either pressing down/left instead of left (and your ship won't move), or I skip over more than 1 web line and kill myself. Plus it gets manic! Well congrats to those of you who scored higher than me, I have no idea how you did that!

I find I do far, far worse when playing on emulation. Even when using the A8 versions. But I will have my real 5200 running for the first week of the OE season at least.
