5200 HSC Season 12 Round 13 - Sinistar

Recommended Posts

Welcome to round thirteen of this 5200 HSC season!   Sinistar won the poll by two votes.  Play using the default settings - Survivor Level / 3 Ships / Auto or Manual Shooting (your choice)


Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The current record was set by sdamon (Who’s that?!) - 284,970 points.  Bust it if you can (if you must) for a bonus point.

 

The ROM can be found here:

10,650

no proof.

 

My Sinistar cartridge keeps crashing, so that's the score the last time I looked up before a crash. I can't really play this one. I should have requested a new cartridge years ago when I bought it from the AA store, but it was one of those times when I didn't play the game until like 6 months after receiving it in the mail, so I didn't say anything then.

Ok, so you take your ship and ram it into the asteroids until these little pixel-wide 'bombs' (called Sini-Bombs) chip off of it. Then you fly around and grab those, which get added to your inventory. Use Sini-Bombs to blow up the demon Sinistar.

43620.  Trying to figure this one out.  I get plenty of bombs but can't take Sinistar out.  Not sure if I'm just slow with the bombs or if I need to take out more of his workers or what.

Welcome aboard!  Glad you're enjoying Sinistar, even using keyboard controls.  (I played MAME games that way for years in the early days!)
