Intellivision HSC Season 13 - Game 1 - Space Armada

I videoed a game I played last night. Got to 159k. There are few gimmicks I like to do with the red saucer. If I hit him to the side and the way is clear for another shot I will fire another one up with the hope that he might come back out. On the 5th screen I think it is I got him back to back. Also when he hovers low in the later screens you can hit him a few times, but remember you have to keep focusing on the Armada or they will land and destroy the Earth. 😁

 

Awesome, thank you for sharing the video!  I noticed your score jumped quite a bit near the end when you hit the saucer a few times in a row.  I didn't know that was possible, or maybe it's a glitch in the Matrix.  🙂  Well done!

Yeah it's a risk the red saucer takes. The lower he hovers the quicker your shooter can reload and smack him again. Also remember the red saucer scoring is random between (1 to 32x the amount of each alien) so later on in the game you can really wrack up points quickly. I've had games where the red saucer will actually seem like he's reluctant to dive lower, he's becoming 'self aware' lol.... 😆🤪😜

Lol. I will definitely keep that in mind. I’m going to shoot for some higher scores tonight.

14280. Not sure what my high score was last season, but this could be my record.

 

 Edit: nope! about 5k points shy, lol

Is the red one easier?  I have the blue one and I can't crack 12K.

Whoa, friends. 
 

so I came back to my game after letting it idle into the screensaver. Look what I found when I woke the console back up:

Okay, I tried to wait patiently for Ed or Rickster to improve their scores so they'd be more than 4x my score... ;-)

Sometimes the brown bomb explodes weirdly and the pixels get all narly looking. It's like an explosion of an explosion lol. 😜

Probably, the red version is all "action" whereas the blue one is too "spacey" ;)

Yep, I shared that link earlier. He states something that I agree with… that the aliens are too big for the screen. 

Do you think, though, that it makes the game feel faster paced and more action packed? Because that seems like the trade off to me...
