Intellivision HSC Season 12 - Game 16 FINAL - Pinball

Recommended Posts

I see this is the final game of the season.  :(  When does the next season start?

 

I've never played Intellivision pinball before today.  Can't seem to get more than about 5,000 points.  Really hard game so far...

Best advice I can give is to slow down and play tactical. This is not a Steve Ritchie flow table, this is stop and aim. First goal each ball is to get the lane blockers up by hitting those notches in the dog bumpers, that'll help a lot.

Usually a month or a few weeks after the last one. Hope to see you there. :)

Expect 2 or 3 Intellivision games from this Season 12, showing another appearence for Season 13. 🤩

 

Clue: They are of Non-Coleco origins. 🤣

I dunno, that game was a Perfect Storm scenario. Everything was falling right for me which doesn't happen very often. Played a game this afternoon where I got 114k on my first ball and then the game went into the toilet after that... 👎

 

On the positive side I have gotten to the 3rd screen a few more times today... 👍

I’ve had some great starts on ball 1 too that I couldn’t keep the momentum on. Much higher scores are possible. There are a lot of features on this game and a wealth of points available on level 3. Too bad so little time is spent there. Dropping all yellow targets on level 3 FIVE TIMES IN 1 BALL!! opens a cup for extra ball then collect bonus. Seems pretty unlikely. In the past 37 years has anyone ever got an extra ball in this game or a collect bonus during a ball?

I know I used to get the EB on level 3 BITD. Not regularly, but definitely multiple times. Also remember having the multiplier up to 3x and 4x at least. Seem to recall that the game was more about the bonus and multiplier (like getting upset if I didn't increase multiplier when bonus was above 20 before draining) than it was straight scoring. 

 

That's why it's so irritating not to be able to get those kinds of scores nowadays. 🙂

Oh, I underestimated the ability of Intellivision gamers!

One more week of competitive Pinball - I’m going to put in a lot more games on this one.🙂

Finally had a decent game on this. Got up to the third screen a couple of times, but didn't stay there long!

Slight improvement. Decent go except for the bit where I got the golden ball then immediately drained it without scoring a single point. 😕

Nice score!

 

I've never been able to make a golden ball appear. I had the moving target come up once, but didn't get anywhere near it!

Question: I haven't seen the Intellivision version of Pac-Man played in a HSC yet since I've been here.  That version is so much better than the Atari version, and it would be cool to have it included in one of these seasons.  Could that be considered for next season?

What exactly does the golden ball do? I've gotten it a few times. I assume you rack up more points with it or does it do even more than that?

I think it's mentioned in the rules, but it doubles your scoring while it's active

Reading through the instructions...page 2 and it's already worth it.

 

"When game title appears on your TV screen, DON'T DO ANYTHING."

 

Well, damn Pinball, didn't know you were so impressed with your demo mode.

Holy crap with these scores people. If this was a real machine, I'd have gone through my roll of quarters with not much to show for it 😕

Had a 4x26 bonus on one ball. That helped.
