5200 HSC Season 13 Round 15 - Jr. Pac-Man

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the fifteenth round of this 5200 HSC season!  Jr. Pac-Man won the poll by a single vote.  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 yours truly with 45,640  points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point.  

 

The ROM can be found here:

Little improvement, but enough for a bonus point.

I think, this record won't last for a long period.

Junior Pac-Man:   48,840

Congrats, Mangia-Boy!

 

Just curious, has anyone been bitten by the game-ending bug yet?  Or have you been careful about not letting the roaming prizes destroy your energizers?

never heard of the bug!

It’s one I ran into ages ago when playing the “Glenn the 5200 Man” computer conversion.  Since then, I’ve seen numerous threads referencing it, and it is also mentioned in the AtariProtos review. If you die at the same time a prize is destroying an energizer, you won’t ever be able to complete the current level.  It doesn’t come up all that often, but it’s annoying when it does.

Ok. I don't like that mechanic of the prize destroying an energizer, but I guess it just adds the need to eat them more quickly.

No matter how I try, I just can't master the Pac-Man genre -- I feel like I'm just running around without a plan getting chased by ghosts.  Surely there must be a mindset I'm missing...
