HSC17 Round 4: BOSCONIAN

Recommended Posts

First try. 

BTW, there is an early version of this game that it much more challenging, hard and fast than the latest version. 

I really enjoy playing that other version, since it is hectic and you are done after few minutes. Just my. 02

Yes, we played the preview version of Bosconian in June 2017 and played the final (easier) version in January 2018.

What about a hectic/frantic mode?  😜

@manterola You mean "condition red" ?

Could you or anybody else tell me how to recognize the so called spy ship. In the documentation I read that when you do not destroy the spy ship you'll get the condition red. So far I have had no idea when this condition red happens and I want to be able to prevent it.

 

Could you help me and explain that? I would appreciate that a lot.  Thanks!

Bosconian - 106830 pts (about 10K from my PB from two years ago so that is a good start)

Sorry, I really did sound like an a***ole, my intention was to create awareness or remind everyone about the existence of this version and to encourage to try it. It is a breath of fresh air after several rounds of the official latest version. In the official version you can go thoroughly destroying the space station base cannons, in the preview version you just try to survive, since the screen is full of enemies pretty quickly, even when it is not condition red, yet.

Regards!

127,570 first go.  This one is murder on the hands, but man it feels good to be playoling a Grug-brained shooting game for a change.

Perhaps see if you have another controller option? While I haven't very high scores, I find that my Starplex is good for this kind of game, and would assume a gamepad of some sorts if you have one - perhaps through a PSX adapter - could come handy too as those often have less resistance in the fire button and you don't have to wiggle a stick as much. I used to dismiss gamepads but have learned to like them for certain kinds of games.
