The 2016 Activision Patches Summer Quest.

Recommended Posts

activision-logo-sticker-4753.png

 

Hello fellow Atariagers and yes it's that time of the year the weather gets hotter, the days are longer, and Atari 2600 gaming to replace your summer reading. This is the 2nd Annual Atariage Activision Patches Summer Quest 2016. Starting now until Labor Day Monday (September 5th) we are going to do a tournament to see who can collect the most Activision patches for the Atari 2600 Activision games. And these Activision games listed with the target score/time to achieve the patch for the corresponding game.

 

Rules:

 

The rules are simple.

 

Any Atariage member is welcome to participate.

 

Any game is to be played on an official Atari 2600 console, Coleco Gemini, Colecovision Expansion Module #1, Atari 5200 VCS adapter, Atari 7800, Atari Flashbacks, or emulation. You can play the Activision Anthology game as well.

 

No save states, cheats, and cartridge frying allowed to enhance the score. You can play any game variation or difficulty for your desired preference.

 

*Save states can be used for one exception. You can use it only for Laser Blast if you want to go for the 1,000,000 point special patch. Since it takes many hours to get it so you can use that as the pause feature and come back to the game at another time. It will be too greuling in one sitting.

 

Take photos or a youtube video to submit your target score or time.

 

Games that have multiple variations of time sets to earning a patch. For example Barnstorming, Grand Prix, or Freeway. If you get all of the time sets for the game YOU ONLY RECEIVE ONE PATCH! There is one patch for these games, not 3 or 4. You are more than welcome to post all of your accomplishments but you won't get a duplicate/extra patch.

 

No old scores allowed. Have to be from June 15th to September 5th of 2016 to be official.

 

Scores are to be presented from now until 11:59 PM Monday September 5th.

 

Most of all it's for fun and nerd cred. :)

 

* Lastly, we earned a grand total of 236 patches in 2015. If we can surpass it by September 5th. Toiletunes will be raffling off an Atari related retro box. One patch earned equals one entry in the drawing (i.e. 20 patches would equal 20 entries). The more patches you earn the better the odds at winning the box.

 

Here is the game's target scores and times for patches to earn. I will have them posted and updated in post #4.

I'm going to have to bust out a portable to play the Anthology. I want a machine to record my "achievements."

We got 236 patches last year. IF we beat that number this year, I will hold a random drawing for an Atari themed Box O' Crap. Each patch earns you one entry.

That's an excellent idea!! We need to start spreading the word out and get a lot to participate.

Got me some patches. Seaquest, Tennis, Plaque Attack, Stampede, Ice Hockey, Frostbite, and Oink. I had a great time getting these last night, I'll probably try for more this weekend. I just wish I had more Activision games.

Pitfall

 

I have a question. Maybe this was answered in last year's thread and I missed it, but how are games with multiple patches handled? Decathlon, for example. Would it be broken down into gold, silver and bronze patches, or will they all be lumped together?

My $0.02: The manuals wording is "send us a picture and we'll send you the appropriate patch," meaning only one patch per entry. However, it doesn't say "limit one entry per person," so: On Laser Blast, for example, you could submit two scores- one for the 100k patch and one for the Million.

In this event I consider getting all the patches for the corresponding game. For example If you submit the score for 1,000,000 in Laser Blast you get both patches. If you submit over 10,000 in Decathlon you get all Bronze, Silver, and Gold patches. 72 tanks blasted in Robot Tank Medal of Merit, Cross of Excellence, and Star of Honor received. So up to that ranking of patch earned by score for ones that have multiple.
