Season 10 ~ Week 2 ~ Midway Arcade Part 2

Recommended Posts

Holy heck this game is tough without having bombs as a panic button! Still, it's definitely a favorite of mine and a lot of fun. Try to focus on rescuing captured humans in the earlier waves for the most points. :)

 

Stargate (Game 1, B/B Difficulty, Left Joystick Only): 64,250

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.

I think the second joystick was a mistake. The control scheme of the original was fine.

The drift after stopping takes some getting used to. Wish I had this one on cart. Anyone else get sad when they accidentally shoot a human? 😢😆 Unfortunately, this one came out too late to be a part of that strategy book I have.

 

Just a little off from my Ms. Pac-Man high...

Hello all, first time I'm entering (might try again for a higher score). Is Javatari alright for these? If not, will Stella take this PS4 stick? All the best.

The preferred emulator is Stella, because it is the most accurate emulator out there. I don’t think other emulators are excluded, at least the first post of the rules doesn’t mention it. It does mention not using the original Atari Flashback (which I believe is a NintendoOnAChip, and has completely rewritten games). As long as your emulator/computer are capable of getting a consistent 60/50 fps, I don’t think it is an issue. People regularly submit scores for PAL games that are many times 16% slower than the NTSC equivalents.

I imagine the humanoid's sighs of relief when the pilot shoots the apple off of the humanoid's head and flies in to the rescue.  Then I imagine the screams of terror when the humanoid figures out that the pilot is out of control and really has no idea what he's doing.

Ok... The Overall Standings are posted.

If you see a mistake..... please let me know in a PM. (So we don't clog the posts... and to hide my inabilities to have a perfect week 😄)

 

Also, on another note.... A question.

Ran out of Rubbing Alcohol to clean my games... The stores have ZERO left (I have checked for weeks) Is there anything else I can use to clean my games so I can play them on my original Atari2600?

Better, but not by much.


Truth be told, I need to aim more carefully and stop shooting the humans.

44,700. Am I breaking some kind of rule by using photos for screenshots? I've just noticed that my last Pac-Man score wasn't posted (that may have changed) and neither was my previous Stargate score. I've been having issues with my regular computer and I can't seem to set up my MAME snapshots folder, but this is only temporary. Or is it a problem with two Atari Warlords playing in the same contest (I'm AtariWarlord while the other fellow is Atari_Warlord)?

I haven’t had much time to play, so I better at least post one in case I don’t get another chance. Not bad actually!
