5200 HSC Season 9 Round 15 Battlezone

Recommended Posts

Our game this round is the Battlezone proto in all its buggy glory. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Play on default starting settings and it's luck of the draw from there. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends Sunday, September 11th 2016 @9pm EST

 

Current HSC record: Bust it for a bonus point!

Battlezone -
DensB68 515,000
Final scores:
206,000 peedenmark7 +11

45,000 sdamon +9+3=12

29,000 zylon +7+5=12
21,000 Cafeman +6+2=8
18,000 RangerG +5

Since only 2 players voted for this one, you may play any port of Battlezone and post it here for a bonus point! If participation is high enough, I'll score it as a half-round...
I might also offer a special bonus if someone submitted their score on an actual arcade cabinet.
Alternate scores:
154,000 zylon 2600 +5
91,000 darthkur 2600 +4
35,000 sdamon MAME +3
16,000 Cafeman DC +2
13,000 roadrunner c64 +1

Ugh. Ok, i'll start with 21,000.

 

Not bad for only 4 minutes time. ;)

Well, you already posted in the poll thread, and it was after 9pm, so I thought it a valid time to start! The round only took about 2 minutes!

The more amazing part is that there were more downloads than minutes passed at that time.

I remember dying pretty fast in the arcade version of this game(when I was 12!). I'm hanging in a bit longer with this one, but still dying from things I'm not seeing...

 

60,000

Round 15 goes to peedenmark7 for blasting the competition with a last minute entry. :thumbsup: :cool: We also had more than 50% participation in the bonus so I scored it as a half round from 5 to 1.

Thanks to all who played and our next round: Expert Joust will begin shortly...

I almost forgot to post this score as I have done countless times this season.. Having been one of only 2 that voted for this game, It would have been a shame not to play it.

Yep. Would have been almost criminal to not post it. Good job. :thumbsup:

I actually didn't vote at all in that poll. I usually just add mine to whatever is winning and close it. With only 3 or 4 votes total, I felt it pointless.

Awesome blowout score, peedenmark :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: !

 

I've cracked 100k in the past but couldn't improve beyond my current HS with multiple attempts. Those fast moving snowmobile-like vehicles that make a noise and come right at you, is what keeps doing my tanks in. So far, I haven't found a reliable 'trick' to destroy those things more than about 1/3 of the time. Oddly, I found an interesting bug where if you are centered behind a 3-D obstruction in the field, a flying saucer is in front of you, and one of those crafts is coming at you..it misses, splits in half when it reaches you and gets caught in a loop. If you fire at the craft it sometimes blows up, but I don't think it registers a score because of the 3-D object in front..however once you move to escape it gets you!!
