Ok, here is the deal.

You can play either game this week or play both.

Your highest ranking will get you the most overall points.

Example 1

Example 2

(Place 20th in Room of Doom and 3rd in Ghost Manor and you will get 48 Points)

It's not BOTH points ... it's the highest points that you will receive.

So… the max points you can get this week without bonus is 50

 

 

Now for the bonus.

or

Place 1-10 in both games and get 4 Bonus points

or

I've always loved Ghost Manor, though like Cosmic Ark this might not be the best game to play competitively since there is an incredibly cheese ball strategy you can use to rack up 500,000+ points in one particular part of the game. For my first try I just played normally without using the point farming exploit.

 

 

Ghost Manor (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 151,751

I think Room Of Doom is a pretty solid game, but the controls in game #1 REALLY takes some time to figure out! I spent nearly 3 hours on this game, so I'm obviously sick of it. However, after I spent some time with the the game, I think I finally got a score that I'm satisfied with. (for now)

 

That's enough Atari for one night! :sleep:

 

Room Of Doom (Game 1, Difficulty B/B): 12,725

I'll try out Ghost Manor tomorrow. It looks pretty interesting.

 

Also: GOD my wrist is sore from that!

Room Of Doom: 3,500 (Easy to see why CommaVid never lasted too long.)

 

Ghost Manor: 164,550 (I always liked how you could play as a boy or a girl.)

How do I kill Dracula? I used both my crosses with no effect on him.

Let's get Room of Doom out of the way first, since I have no cart. Really interesting concept, but I don't like emulation too much. Ghost Manor I actually have, will play it later.

Ghost Manor: 14,250.

 

Can't figure out how to get rid of Dracula. The cross doesn't seem to do anything, no matter how close I am.

What you need to do is position yourself directly below Dracula, and underneath the prison where the boy/girl is held captive.

 

Press and hold the fire button, this will push Dracula up, hold the button until Drac swaps places with prisoner.

 

Now get back to where you started in this room and wait til your newly freed prisoner gets there as well

Actually I prefer to play with the point pressing.

Given the timer only last 4 minutes, going for the highest possible score in that time I feel more challenging than simply beating the game.

 

But I do get where are coming from, it may not be in the spirit of the game or how it was intended to be played

Ghost Manor is a pretty ambitious game for the Atari 2600. There's a lot going on in this game. However, it really could have benefited from more polish. Not to mention the point-pressing glitch that Jin pointed out. :ponder:

I don't even know how to point press this game, so I'm not even sure if I inadvertently did or not.

Do you get more bonus points if you finish it faster? I went through pretty quick, and managed 10K better than before.

Room of Doom Game 1 B/B - COMPLETED - 51,850 / GOOD GAME

 

To achieve this score, I used the technique based on the trick provided by Keilbaca at 2600 OLD HSC Season 8, Week 7 (September 2010).

“You have LOTS of time in the earlier levels. You can milk shooting the monster that chases you in the early levels until time runs to about 5 seconds left on the top. You get no bonus points for completing a level based on time, so milk that monster.”

Room 02: 06:41 - 006900
