HELLO ATARI HSC!

Season 9 is here!

Wow... the summer went fast!

Welcome to Season 9 ~ Atari 2600 HSC.

You can expect the same format as previous years The Season will last 24-26 weeks.

I will be posting a new game every Thursday or Friday... giving players 9-10 days to play each game. This will also give players a chance to play multiple games every weekend.

WE ARE HERE TO PLAY FOR FUN!   So, have fun! And you don't have to play every week.

You will play many different games.  I try to pick games that haven't been played for over 3 years. I try to mix it up between good games and not so good games.

The Regular Season will end and we will follow the Regular Season with the Medal Bracket Challenge with the TOP 32 Qualifying for the Medal Bracket Challenge!

So enjoy everyone! Play for fun and keep the Atari HSC  ALIVE!

Thanks!

Vocelli

First time on 2600 in a couple months, got pretty lucky on my first attempt, 8900, PB is only 10,500, I'll play this some more and try to improve it.

First time participant, Hello All, I have Atari buddies from another site that I promised I'd give this a go this time around, I'm REALLY hit and miss, I don't expect much, except having fun!!!

Tough game.  The ships are so spastic that it's hard to tell where the heck they are half the time.

Welcome back everyone! It's great to see you all here for the new season, and I'm totally stoked that we're starting off with Gorf! This has always been one of my favorite Atari games ever since I was a little kid, and I'm kicking off season with what I feel like is a really solid (and new personal best) high score. :)

 

 

Gorf (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 25,300

With HSC, I 'm compelled to use my various 2600 systems. I'm also motivated to play a game for more than a few minutes before moving on. I didn't have Gorf as a kid, so I never really put significant time into it until now. One thing I am having a hard time with is knowing where the edge of the screen/play field is.  The edges of the play field are not centered on the score. The ship can go a lot further to the left than it can to the right. Its that way on a CRT and with the R77/Stella on a flat panel. Guess I need to play more and get a better feel for it. Here is a start.

No matter how infuriating Gorf is, I'm still fond of it after all these years and will play it any chance I have. I could write a book on the subject. In fact, I did write a book on the subject:

Avics ARE my specialty, but the pic is actually a T. gigas, that I actually bred myself-known to be the fastest tarantula! Still a New World Arboreal, like Avics.

Thanks!!!
