Monty:  97,400!  The screen blacked out before I could grab a screenshot.  :(

I was using the one posted by devwebcl and it leaves the last screen on at the end.

 

Super P I thnk I saw the perfume bottle? what sort of fruit is that eh?!

Don't remember a bottle, but then I wasn't looking that closely. It cycles back to the first 'fruit' after level 16

Montezuma Again! - 25000 pts

 

I believe I could score a little more on this one, if I'm careful enough about my jumps and not wasting those 5 lives so easily.

 

Super Pacman - 54130 pts (16% better than my score in 2017 on 1/5 of the time spent playing it)

 

Also, it no longer seems like my "max" score, a lot of things to improve. Does this mean I've become a better gamer after 3 years in the Atari 8-bit HSC?

Super Pacman 22980

Montezuma Again! 10000 (5 lives ... this is hard)

 

Really cool to play some new levels on Monty and a working version of Super Pac-Man.

Just curious - are you picking up the gems? I started out avoiding them because it seemed like they were an unnecessary risk, but I've found that it's relatively easy to get extra lives in this game if you do grab them. I had 8 or 9 extra lives stacked up at one point.

Montezuma: 49900

20200403_204508.thumb.jpg.6091ebc559f5f0cb7483765bccfb4092.jpg

 

When loading Montezuma, I once saw a splash screen that said "Monty 16kb, by Steve and Bill" or something like that. I only saw it once... odd.

I get the Steve and Bruce loading message every time on the 130XE - those guys might have been identified on one of the antic podcasts, can't remember

Like in Boulderdash greed is good, get them all folks!

They're all coming out of the woodwork (2600?!) Welcome back Fres :party:

 

No improvement from me on Super P and too many failed attempts on coding my game (my overly complex routine on steroids has been made even more complex, I love it!) to get a Monty in today 😦

Yes, I try to pick up the gems but I realized as soon as you have five items, like keys or daggers, you can not pick up any gems until you have used up some of the items so perhaps it is a good practise to never carry more than four items in order to grab gems for increased score.

I remember the Steve and Bruce loading screen too.  It was on the version I played way back in the day.  I downloaded it from a local BBS and it came that way.  I would learn later that it was an incomplete version of the game (but not the incomplete version with the title and song).  The Steve and Bruce one was good, but it's missing some screens or something, if I remember correctly.  Also, there is supposed to be a sound effect for when you kill an enemy with a sword, but it is not present in the Steve and Bruce version.

 

Also, glad to be back!  I've only played each title in this round one time, so I expect to improve.

I've said it many times but anyone who has missed any rounds can post scores for them and I'll factor in some points for you: so that makes Fres and Caco with about 100 rounds to catch-up! We'll just those from this season if you get bored ;)

 

Now I next should get the R7 poll up and running while I'm here [do I stop my assemble to check I put the maps in, or wait 20 mins and then curse put them in and do it again :ponder: ]

Given that José took apart the entire game, wrote new routines to load compressed rooms and inserted new rooms to get up to 72 of them, it is a little surprising that the load message that says 16K version and Steve and Bill still is in place, assuming the binary is significantly different from the 16K version of Montezuma's Revenge (I suppose the full version you might compare it to was released on disk?).

Yes carlsson HSC play does improve your play keep it up :thumbsup:

 

Literally that took me 40 minutes to do the R7 poll thread but the R7 poll is ALIVE. Should be an interesting one - no big names this time so we'll play the two winners (trbb stands by for a 5 way tie)  ;-)

 

Another week to go on this round, like I said if anyone needs extra time we can extend things ;-)

Montezuma Again!

53,050 (sometimes shows the blank screen at the end sometimes doesn't - perhaps this can be fixed?)

Found a pole dancing spider

Made it to here, the blue door is tricky - hopefully next time!

and I don't fancy anyone's chances on this screen!

Can someone clarify exactly which Montezuma file we should use?  Mine went black at the end as was pointed out.  I thought I switched to the other file, had a great game, and then it went black again and I lost it.  I now don't know which one is which.
