Season 17 Round 7 - Urban Champion

Recommended Posts

This time we're competing for the highest round completed.  If there are any ties then both players will get the points for whichever place they're in and the next place will be skipped.  For example, if two players are tied for first place they'll both get 25 points.  The second place will be skipped and the next player will get 17 for third place and so on.

Man, this game is as dumb as I remember it being.  Not all the launch titles were good games...

Round 14

Like most of the genre, I've always found this "fighting" game is best w/two players. Tempest, you're a mad man, straight out the gate.

I want to say, "I can do better," but I can only muster, "Do I want to?"

Tortured myself with a few minutes of Baseball, but when I had bases loaded, deep fly ball, and my runner on 2nd ran to 1st... I had to bench him.

Baseball really frustrated me tonight. SO SLOW. I don't know how you did it asponge. Golf on the other hand, I'm gettin' better at. And I started taking notes :)

 

Golf +4

It really is a very slow game.  I started a few rounds myself over the past weeks and just didn't have the patience to finish it.  I was determined to stick at least one game out and get to the end.  I imagine that this is what playing a prototype of RBI Baseball would be like.  It just feels unpolished.

Baseball came out 5 years after Home Run for the Atari 2600. I guess it was good for the time, but it has not aged well at all.

Seriously?  You're going make me play this again?  Is there actually a strategy for this or is it just dumb luck?

I don't think there is one.  Sometimes you seem to get lucky and you can do the same move over and over again to the computer just takes it, other times the computer seems to be super aggressive and won't let up.  It's weird.

My strategy for when the computer was being really aggressive was to dodge to keep them from pushing me backwards and then counter punch.  I could often catch the fighter while he was winding up and knock him down.  The first couple of attempts I didn't realize you could dodge backward and only made it to around round 15.  I also almost exclusively used the strong punch with B.  The weaker A punch didn't ever seem very useful when I tried it.  The last thing I noticed, and I could be imagining this, is that it seemed easier to land a punch when I was backed off the opponent a bit and not right up next to them.  The computer appeared to be a bit slower to block in that position.

 

Frankly I don't have enough experience with this game to say whether I got lucky or any of the above makes any difference.  I'll have to see if I can repeat this over the next week.

I still can't find a strategy for this game.  Dodging doesn't seem to do anything for me other than accidentally make me take a step back.

Yeah that doesn't happen until you get to round 150 or something (When the rounds go into hex).  I watched it in a video on YouTube.

52!  I keep running out of time.  When that happens the other guy will just wail on you and there's nothing you can do.  The cop even came by and he was still hitting me!  Speaking of the cops, they're so annoying!  Not only does it take an eternity for them to go by, but it eats up so much clock!  Also I swear that guy with the flower pot comes out every 3 seconds on the higher levels.

 

I always pause it when I die to take the screen shot as I can't stand seeing my opponent get showered in confetti...

Nice! The cops are annoying. According to the instructions, if time runs out, the cops are supposed to take away the player who has been pushed back the furthest. I haven't run out of time tho. That's hilarious that the guy was hitting you when the cops came by. Also, 😢 for pausing before the opponent gets confetti. Screw that guy anyway. He obviously has the cops in his back pocket...
