Intellivision HSC Season 12 - Game 14 - Beamrider

Recommended Posts

Small improvement. My high on CV was 28k, but I'm not hitting that here. Fun game, gets hectic. Anyone else see your crashed ship as a foil swan?

Played this one last time tonight to try to improve, but sadly I could not. Only got to sector 13. This game just beats the crap out of me and I don’t know why. My beam ridin’ days are over.

This game would have been awesome as an arcade cabinet back in the day. It just screams for a joystick and big firing button.

I played a couple more today and did manage to get to sector 20, but not quite 60k score, so I had to leave it 400pts short of the patch.  Wouldn't be satisfying to get if it was easy, eh?

Nice! 

Beamrider's got a great learning curve. Earlier in the round, I'd never have thought I'd be able to cope with the game at Sector 12 and above, but you somehow get in tune with it. I'm still not great at it, but that was a really fun game.
