HSC16 Round 22: Moon Patrol Redux

Recommended Posts

I tried to shoot the tanks, but the b*stards would not vanish! Perhaps I didn't hit them well enough. Actually I managed to time my jumps enough to bounce over the first one, but landed at the bullet of the next one. I'm sure practise makes perfect.

Slow down for the tank, shoot a single shot as you approach, it hit's their bullet, then wait a tad and fire again, if you fire too fast firing again you shoot up, either way if you get near them jump over them speeding up again as you do, then repeat.

TANKS VERY MUCH :D

Thinking hats on for the season finale, suggestions here please.

What happened with the Blocks on Legs, are those suitable for a final round?

 

Last year we had some Christmas releated games. This year I was thinking parties in general, and found Animal Party (PAL only) and perhaps Mouse Party. Probably there are better examples of games with that theme, though most party games tend to be quiz stuff completely unsuitable for the High Score Club.

Isn't the Premise of Jet Set Willy that he has to clean up after a party?!

I was wondering how come my scores were low vs Starbug who got to about the same place, then I remembered it's 100pts for jumping the rocks vs 50pts for shooting them, so that's going to land me in another bunch of craters!

68,450 (w) hey that's the exact same score !!

 

Enjoying playing this great game, it's just got that perfect get the eye to look up no look across arrggh I told you to look up why didn't you listen appeal :)

 

Keep those suggestions coming :thumbsup:

Went to my brothers for an old time gaming session today. Not something we've done for a long time. 

 

We had a good couple of hours playing 2-player Bubble Bobble on the Play Station, I hope that game makes it to our platform one day.

 

Anyway more to the point he had a few tries on Moon Patrol. His best score was 37050. He's not played Atari for years but I've left my SIO2SD with him so he may play some more. 

 

We have a return fixture at my house on Friday!

69,650 - point R still I think, but maybe a rock or two further. Is there an extra life at 70,000? I hope so anyway,  it's tough enough!

 

Edit: Ok, probably my last effort before the deadline. Can't seem to get any further than R, but slightly better score this time

 

71,100

I'm pretty sure I've found a serious bug (really this time) I think if you have beaten the record for a checkpoint you do not score any bonus points! I'll post something on the MP thread!

I woz robbed!

I decided to practise a little so I kept continuing from point U until I got the rhythm as you describe it. However I am not able to destroy the tank fire, I need to jump over it but can then go for the tank itself or jump it. By using continues I finished all the way to Z so now it only remains to do everything from point A to Z and onto the next lap. So far a small improvement to 29900 pts.

 

Edit: Ok, I so I kept playing and got all the way to point U without losing a life. I screwed up once, but managed to complete the first run with 3 lives remaining.

 

Moon Patrol Redux - 46800 pts (Point F on second lap)

26.600, tanks got me. Jumping over them seems to work better than shooting them (which worked but seems to require very exact timing).

just whack on the breaks as soon as you see the tanks, shoot wait, shoot again.

 

I wasn't playing v4 but just had 65K on it, smaller aliens and larger rocks, slightly harder all round I think :)

 

nice pictures RT and nice music/pic demo Sikor both will earn some bonus HSC points, it is nearly Christmas afterall ;)

thanks carlsson ;)

 

Congratulations to McKong for Patrolling the Moon at least three times round. Great game and I'm probably going to take a look at the other interim versions posted too to see what they did on each stage. Look forward to the next update too, hope they create some new levels :)

 

Thanks for playing everyone, two rounds to go!
