5200 HSC Season 12 Round 17 - Beamrider

Recommended Posts

Welcome to round seventeen of this 5200 HSC season!  Beamrider won the poll by two votes.  Play using the default settings.  Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The current record was set by peedenmark7 with 75,890 points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point.

 

The ROM  can be found here:

20310, this is definitely farther than I've even gotten before.  I was seeing some crazy enemies I'd never come across before!

This game fascinates me because if you showed it to me out of context, I would swear it was an Intellivision game.  It looks and sounds exactly like one in my opinion.

I’m pretty sure it was indeed programmed for the Intellivision originally, then later ported to other systems.  Good catch!

32530.  I seem to max out at Level 15. Score just depends on how many motherships I get along the way.  Nice score @jblenkle, I can't imagine getting to Sector 20.

THANKS! The Atari 5200 version is hard. I've played the ColecoVision version a lot and have put up 65,000 points on that version...but the 5200 version doesn't play quite the same.

Congratulations to jblenkle for scorching the most saucers, blasting the most bouncecraft, and sizzling the most Sentinels!  Jungle Hunt will be coming up next.
