Intellivision HSC Season 12 - Game 12 - Happy Trails

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I’d love to get 40K by Sunday but it doesn’t look likely at this point. The game is clever and takes cleverness to solve. It’s a real good mental exercise. I hate starting over at the beginning, I want to rush through the easy boards then I end up crashing. Being able to start higher like in Tempest or Millipede would be great. Or a practice mode like the one in Space Armada would be good for working out higher boards.

Completely agree and being able to replay the higher levels would help me get over the brain freeze that sometimes hits me when I'm part way through a level.  I'll zip through levels when my instincts are working, but then sometimes I'll wind up just going back and forth over the same stretch while thinking to myself "what the damn hell do I need to do to get to that section???"  :)

A practice mode would definitely be a nice addition. It's a pretty quick game and doesn't take long to get through a lot of levels, but it would be nice to be able to jump straight to your last maze and try out different ways of finishing it. 

Still, even without a practice mode, it's a great game. Challenging but fun - I'll never get tired of it!

I got to two Black Barts. Why do they have to be two Black Barts who run? I like how some of the boards have such great flow to them. If you can get on the right path you can motor through.

Probably my last go for this round. Thought I was going to beat my highest ever but lost it a bit around the 150,000 mark.

Agreed Biff, a bit stressful. When it all comes together, satisfying. Sat down today and kept beating my high each game. Went till that trend stopped, hah.
