Intellivision HSC Season 13 - Game 3 - Auto Racing

Recommended Posts

Guys that’s awesome! As far as I know... and I’ve been following this game for a long time.... 3:12 is as fast as you can go. I heard of 3:11 but it’s my theory that it’s a fraction of a tick faster; not a whole second. So you guys are 1 second + a fraction from the perfect run on the red car!

I have another theory... just a theory.... the game randomly starts your car on the top or the bottom of the track. If you start at the top... it may save half a second on your times... since the first turn is a left turn.

I thought of that too, wondering if it might make a difference.

I find track 2 to be absolute torture. Takes forever to get 5 laps done and I almost fell asleep a couple times. I played it with the green car just to get it done. Don’t think I want to go back and play that one again. Enjoy guys.  See ya for game 4 next week. 
7:24

Track 2, Green car

That's real close to optimum with red, nicely done!

2nd Entry for 2nd Course - Red Car. Had a great run, no wrecks and barely a little green. You were right SPARTAN, 'every second counts'. 😜

 

My Times Update:

 

Course 1 - Red Car 3:13

Course 1 - Blue Car 3:16

Course 2 - Red Car 5:58

Red Frogger, coming out of retirement for a hard-earned participation point! I feel like David Hasselhoff.

The Hoff getting it done! I can see red Frogger there! And I didn’t mention that the black bot in Night Stalker officially has a graduation cap as well. Don’t forget guys... I came up with “Red Sunglasses” on Space Battle :)

Ok, here is my effort, just because there are not many entries and I did not do as well as I had hoped for Space Armada.

 

I tried Course 1 with the white car, then the green car, and finally the red car.  My best time was the green car.  The red car is too much car for my skill level.

Then I tried Course 2 with the green car.  By the time I got five laps in, I never wanted to play the game again.  😛

Yup.... until Biffman drops the sandbags :) :) 

BiffMan just managed to get himself sick, so may be a few days longer until I can properly crush all who oppose me.

Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here? 

 

LOL, no relation. Maybe a little MadDog in me... 

 

Rapid test came back negative for COVID, so now waiting 2-3 days for another test to confirm COVID or not. Another possibility is West Nile. What a world we're in where West Nile is the 'good' outcome. 

 

Anyway, I'll rest up and still get my blue car time in eventually, just too dizzy to drive at the moment. 🙂

Wow, thank god it’s not COVID, so far at least. West Nile?  Yikes!  Well in any case, get better man!  We’ll see your scores again soon I’m sure.

Will the Red Car be able to shave off 1 more second for the optimal time or will the wild ass Blue Mustang be tamable for a time of 3 less seconds? The goal is 3:12, who will get it? 🤔

 

Course 1 - Red Car 3:13

Course 1 - Blue Car 3:15

Course 2 - Red Car 5:58
