Jacob, not slow speed right?  That's gotta be a typo?  Disc is the only speed to play on this and that's the way it's always been in the HSC before.  Slow is unplayable.

I'd never played this game before!

 

I've just tried it on the slow setting and it's really  good fun. I've not tried it on a faster speed yet though. Is it much better?

I can't honestly notice much difference in the speed.   And to get us started...

Jeez, what a score!

 

I got just over 5000 pts and thought I was doing well. I clearly need to practise! 😆

Disc speed is the only way to go on this game.  It's basically "normal" speed.  Anything less than that is just too slow.  Waiting for Jacob to respond since I don't think we should be playing it on slow speed at all.

Which is why we should just play it at disc speed.  It’s what everyone plays it at anyway.

This is a tough game to play with a keyboard! (Too many buttons for a modern controller to feel right). It really takes advantage of the Intellivision controller for sure. I mapped out my keyboard to best resemble the keypad and it's gonna take some practice...

I play tested the Disc/Normal and also the 2nd fastest speed (Slow) I found them to both be challenging with Slow a bit easier for beginners, and its easier to kill Recognizers, also this game has a better slow setting then Night Stalkers crawl.

 

Quick note:

There's going to be a 2nd game starting to alternate for rest of the season, as to speed up our game selection a bit with still consisting of 2 weeks a game.

I tried on disc speed and it is noticeably faster, but can't say 'slow' is unplayable. 'Slowest' (3) is definitely unplayable. 🙂

Sorry, I feel that it should be on disc speed. I don’t know anyone that plays it on a speed less than that.

I'm down with trying on slow.  You're the boss and it's all about trying out different things, right? 🙂

 

Looking forward to alternating games, thanks for that!

I think disc speed is the normal speed for this game and what it’s meant to be played at. I don’t see the point in playing it any slower than normal. This game has ALWAYS been played on disc in the HSC for that reason.

Jacob, can we have the option to play it on disc speed if we want to?  Wouldn’t be any advantage.  You ok with that?

I as well,have only ever played this game on disc speed. Great call!

I was very happy to see this game chosen regardless, but disc speed is the most fun way to play the game.

Did some creative mapping to a PS3 controller and I'm having a much better time controlling it. Wish I had the cart tho.

Absolutely right!  I don’t know why anyone would want to play it at any other speed.

Because he asked us to and it's different? 😁

 

I've played a bazillion times on disc speed, never before on slow.  Doing something new in a 38 year old game is nice.

Could try it. But would still be good to have the option to play it on disc speed if we want.

It's still the same game right?

No matter what speed you play on it doesnt affect your score.

Plus,the disc is faster and actually may be considered the hardest version.

If you want to play that speed,that should be fair.

Agreed. It’s the same game. Just faster. Should be able to play it that way too.

I have no problem with that.  As long as you can put up with the crushing despair of knowing you ducked a challenge.  The challenge of maintaining your focus on the slower playing speed! Woo! WOOOOOOOO! WOO. Woo? 

 

Seriously though, perhaps we make future such challenges 'slow (1) or faster' in the interests of pleasing folks while not excluding those new to the game who might benefit from the slower speed?

Lol!  I agree with that. Allow the games to be played at a slower speed AND faster for the more experienced players if they wish.
