Intellivision HSC Season 12 - Game 5 - TRON Deadly Discs

Recommended Posts

😃👍

I forgot what to do to the orange guys when they came out....

I love this game because when you do something great like take three enemies out with one throw,its an incredible feeling.

Or making 3 great shots in a row in different directions if you get surrounded. 

So much fun!

One great tactic when you get a higher score is keep one enemy alive until another comes out so you dont have to defeat a recognizer.

Also keep a door open on either side so you can pass back and forth to safety.

Great strategy stuff in this game!

Buuuut....the recognizer is 100k points when you get to that point!  Tough call, but you will build your score faster when you destroy recognizers.

Nice! Doesn't really take much for your scores to grow quickly at that point. Just a couple rounds away from 100k, and from there, you get 10k per kill, 50k per fast round clear, and 100k per recognizer!

So bummed I still don't have this game. I'm insisting on getting a copy with two overlays but I don't care as much about the box or instructions 

I'll send you a copy for free.  Message me your mailing address!

I was using the * key to fire, need to figure out the emulator controls for this one.

This game sometimes feels like one of those dreams where you try to run, but you can't move your legs properly! 

 

The number of times I've tried to reach a door and it's been like Tron's running through quicksand! Slowdown is quite bad at times (that's my excuse anyway!) 😁

The second hit really slows you down.  Be very carefull with the brown discs.  One hit from a brown disc counts for two.

I guess that's me not reading the instructions properly again! I didn't realise it was supposed to slow down. 🙈

You start out with 3 hits to kill you, and slow down with each. At 20k and 100k points each, you get another hit to a max of 5.

 

The bulldogs and guards also slow down when you put hits on them, but everyone else is either full speed or de-rezzed.

I’ve got to the orange guys before, so I knew I could do that. Never got too much farther after 1 million though. Need to get better at knocking them out.

You must have died pretty much like I did when the orange guys appeared. 

I should have been more prepared to run at 1 million!
