Frankenstein's Monster  -  1,880

Halloween  -  50,625

 

Not sure I can get any better on Frankenstein but almost positive I can get a little further on Halloween with more time and patience!

Hey OldmanG....I don’t think this score should count.... you still have a life left...for this game the score should only count on game over....what do you guys think??

That is game over.  Once you beat it you're done.  At least I couldn't continue when I did.

This score shouldn’t count either because it isn’t game over yet... the little guy is on the front right of screen.  I don’t care what the decision is... but we should decide if we accept scores before game over for Frankenstein.  Cheers...G

The game ends when the timer expires, regardless of lives left.

Exactly ... also, even if the timer doesnt expire, the game ends after the 6th board.

Meh ... its a learning curve, no worries! Ive had to figure out half of these games along the way, too. What I have found personally helpful is Atari Age having a robust selection of game manuals that I read in their entirety before I begin playing title here. ;-)

Frankenstein's Monster 1,660. (Just so you all know, this is a post-game screen, although I do have one of Frankenstein coming at me which includes the score if it will help validate).

Halloween 22,050.

Frankenstein's Monster: 3630 (beat it!)

Halloween: 4725

 

Commentary

 

Frankenstein's Monster: I always liked this game and thought the concept is cool (and still do!)... then I paid attention to the score for the first time! Holy smokes, that's brutal! Lose a life? -200! Get hit by stuff, especially the god damn bats? -points! Fall down the pit (-100), then get hit by a spider (-20?), THEN drown in the water (-200)? -320! On the other hand, first time I ever trapped him! Bonus, if you have a color changing LED, I recommend making it green to get into the theme for this one. :)

 

Halloween: Can I do better than 4725? Absolutely! Do I want to? No. :)
