HSC14 Round 3: Super Cobra

Recommended Posts

The alternate shooting in this game always spoilt it for me, not my favourite

I figure just mash away until I see the bomb where I want it!

 

Just been watching the original Scramble video, looks like COM 2 is the nearest we have? Would be cool to have this converted one day... I might have a (poor) go at a Horizontal scroller for my next project; I'm still polishing Space Fortress Omega :)

Reminder this round closes in the morning: Sunday 10am UK time / 4pm EST

and remember you can post +500 miles if you reach the 2nd part of the stage (colour change) for less than 10,000 miles.

 

I've had a lot of goes but not improved, but I'm playing again now!

 

RedThunder if you want to post the next round in the morning I'll pin it, looking forward to some racing :)

No problem. I will only have a chance to post later in the evening tomorrow. Or I draft something now and you could cut n past tomorrow morning ?

 

Any thoughts on the Team Trophy ?

if you wish: send me something to get things started and I'll post it in the morning, we can add more detail when you have time. Teams wise it's difficult as we will not know who will play so perhaps I'll pick some based on the current standings... I can add this /fill out the post tomorrow :)

I failed on my late night go but RedThunder didn't, and wins the round with a whacking 44,000 miles.

 

I didn't have any issues with the games dynamics (PAL system player), it was all about the gun emplacements and taking them out or waiting for them to fire - I'm not sure but I might have spotted a couple of things for next time: 1 - sometimes the plume hits the bullets stopping them start; 2 - on the big diagonal down tunnel the bullets may pass through the chopper's tail if you are moving right?

 

If anyone missed this round post a late score and join in on the next one ;-)

late score (posting, I actually completed it the first day), put me down for 4,000 miles.

 

I later went on to complete 9,000, but I did that in Altirra at 50Hz, and I kind of like using the 16% expert difficulty switch.
