To start this thread, here are 2 videos which I want to present to 2600 HSClubers:

 

1) Boom Bang vs. Crackpots on Waves 7 and 8. As a Bonus Challenge for this contest, my suggestion is to play Boom Bang, the Variant of Crackpots.

 

2) Crackpots Gameplay Video, presented for Activision Patches Summer Quest 2015 Contest.

 

Boom Bang ROM just to kill the curiosity:

So Boom Bang is not identical in gameplay/difficulty, oyama? Shame. I'll have to play emulator in that case, because on cart, I only have Boom Bang.

Yes, Boom Bang is easier than Crackpots on Wave 8, whose scorings are 80 points (Black Bug), 160 (Blue), 240 (Red) and 320 (Green) - Bugs climb slower than on Wave 7.

For Boom Bang presented in the video above, I used the Brazilian Version by CCE (Color Format NTSC although the Brazilian TV Format is PAL-M).

Had to fire up the real hardware for this one. This is one of those games that I was never really good at, but I have fun every time we play it. :)

Doesn't hurt too much to have to emulate this. Feels ok with keyboard controls, but I'd rather play my real Atari...

 

Score: 25,980.

Getting better at slotting right over the pot. It's kinda like playing a trombone, where the slide has to be stopped at the precise point that plays the right note.
