5200 HSC Season 12 Round 8 - H.E.R.O.

Recommended Posts

Welcome to round eight of this 5200 HSC season! H.E.R.O. won the poll by two votes. We will be playing on the default setting. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The current HSC record for H.E.R.O. was set by Northcoastgamer - 330,635 points. Bust it if you can for a bonus point!

Is the Atari 800 version allowed?

Sure, as far as I know its identical code-wise to the 5200 version.

I have an objection to it. The 5200 game is optimized for the analog control. You can hover and generally have great control on the 5200 version using analog, but using a digital control makes it so you can't hover, so his speed is maxed out all the time. My objection with the 8-bit version is if it was optimized for digital controls, then that would be a huge advantage over the 5200 game.

Stock controller. I think I was close to the end of level 16. Had four or five lives when I started the level, but I fell victim to a series of mining accidents, if you can believe it.

55005. I struggle with the control on this, too sensitive or something.
