Okay the weeks will look like this...

Thursday/Friday: New Game will be posted unless it is a 2 week special

This will give you several games to play every weekend.

 

Sundays will be the last day to play on any given week.... check the posted dates for all games.

 

On Tuesdays/Wednesdays I will calculate the OVERALL STANDINGS and post them.

((I do make mistakes.... Please double check your scores on your 'pocket calculator' (Kraftwerk song by the way)).

PM me if you see mistakes.

 

Enjoy.... You may post your Stargate/Defender II scores NOW!

 

You don't have to post every week. So if you missed Week 1... still post Week 2.

Just post when you can on the weeks you can.

And.... everyone together... HAVE FUN!

I was impressed when I first saw this game.  I couldn't believe they made Defender II/Stargate look closer to the arcade game than the original did.  Sure you needed two joysticks to play, but that's a small price to pay.

Looks like I'm gonna spectate this round (nothing is stopping me from using an emulator, I just like using real hardware).

I prefer original hardware too, and I find myself playing more in rounds for games I have physical copies of, but I also like checking out ones I don’t have. I got into the HSCs to play more of the stuff I have, but I’m glad to be checking out those I don’t. Kind of surprised I didn’t have this one, especially since it was released twice hahaha.

I started participating in the various HSC over the last few years simply to make myself make time to play the games. :) Collecting, creating new ways to play, optimizing setups, reworking the desk to fit just one more console into it... I was doing all of this without playing games. What the hell was the point? 🤣

 

I am bad at a lot of games (however it's SO easy to roll over Space Invaders) but I do enjoy playing them. :)

Stargate: 33,200

 

Fun game, but I don't expect to do well on the higher levels without the use of my old crutch, smart bomb.

Defender II- 39250

Is Stargate the PAL version or just another release under a different name?

@TheActivisionary, Defender II is just another release under a different name (originally released as Stargate).

Defender II is variant of Stargate for Atari 2600 according to the notes which I read on the older versions of Stella Emulator.
