5200 OE HSC Challenge 03/2020 Beamrider

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Our game this month is the popular Beamrider, yes, back to shooting something. ;) Play on defaults using real 5200 systems and Atari mfg controls. Era correct 3rd party analog sticks allowed with -1 HSC pt penalty. Only modern exceptions allowed are SD loaders/flashcarts running original ROMs. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends when month does.

i had to take before i used up all my lives
my Beamrider cart is very fussy. 
Keep having to clean it get it to load up and wedge a folded piece of paper
between the cart and cart slot.
Had a 19k score but game crashed

Seems like a decent enough game, but the zen of Beamrider...escapes me :-D
