5200 HSC Season 13 Round 13 - Popeye

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the thirteenth round of this 5200 HSC season!  Jr. Pac-Man and Popeye got two votes each, but Popeye lost the last tie so we’ll let it win this one. Play using the default settings.  Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The current record was set by the formidable Northcoastgamer with 273,680  points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point.  

 

The ROM can be found here:

Standings:

rubeon - 143,200

Cafeman - 73,270

Mangia-boy - 61,810

jblenkle - 61,270

troff - 19,790

roadrunner - 17,810

143,200

 

I never really was interested in this game as a kid, since I didn’t find Popeye that cool any more. Turns out, this is a great game!
 

This is now my second-favourite platformer on the 5200 after Miner 2049er (which i also first played in the HSC)

You know what, I cannot get Popeye.bin from the OP post to work on either Altirra or Win800. I'm using the newest non-beta version of Atirra. Other games work.  Can somebody post a ROM of 5200 popeye that works in Altirra ?
