Dragster-5.61

:)

I can pop these off pretty much at will, as can Nads-

Lol, one of us may push for a 5.57 this week, but I dunno. They take a lot of patience and precision.

This one actually took me a good 5 minutes tho, tbh, kinda ticked me off, the 5.67's were getting old...

(I love Dragster, btw, obviously, and is probably the only game where I really do brag about how "good" I am at it...).

 

Great Pick, OMG!!!

Pole Position is one I've needed to improve anyway, so that'll be fun!!!

I was doing so well, but I crashed on the third lap twice! Oh well, at least I'm getting the hang of taking the hairpin without slowing down!

 

Bonus: 5.94 for Dragster.

"So whatcha doing today Skippy?"

"Well, I was planning on cleaning the house and..."

"Oh no you ain't [email protected]!#?!! You're gonna play POLE POSITION!!!" :lol:

 

Seriously one of my all time favorite commercials, and easily my favorite racing game on the Atari 2600. I'm starting off this round right with a new personal best high score! :-D

 

 

Pole Position (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 60,710

Dragster  -  5.64

 

One of my favorites!! Not sure I'll do any better than this since I've only ever hit the 5.61 a handful of times, but I'm very willing to try!

I'm surprised I don't own Pole Position, so off to the emu for that. Will submit what will hopefully not be my last for Dragster, the game that's teaching me how to drive stick 😂

 

Dragster- 6.71

Score update and a little tip for Pole Position! It might sound gimmicky, but if you happen to have one of those QJ foot pedals it's actually really useful for Pole Position. What you do is run your joystick through the foot pedal and assign the Up and Down directions for shifting up and down to the pedals, that way those directions will be disabled on the joystick and you won't accidentally shift gears while trying to steer. :)

 

 

Pole Position (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 60,810

That’s a great Dragster score for not playing it before!

 

For Pole Position, I started with the commercial, so I learned I wasn’t going for my Sunday drive. And that I’d have skid marks on my soul. *shudders*

Bonus time! Dragster has never been a game that I've been super good at, my previous fastest time before today was 5.97, but I did manage to beat it with a new personal best of 5.91 tonight so I'm happy. Anytime I can play a game in the High Score Club and beat my previous personal best it feels like an accomplishment. :)

 

 

Bonus

Dragster (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 5.91

Pole Position 22,340  - Lap two was like driving behind Alonso as the cars kept weaving to block me.

 

Dragster 6.14 - One of those games I love and hate at the same time.

Vocelli-

Curious, would game 2 on Dragster be acceptable to submit on?

Basically, I have the 5.57 a few times now on game 1(in the past, not this week yet), but "only" a 5.61 on game 2, so my time would be more productively spent on game 2(much harder...).

Just curious, not swearing that's the route I'll go, just wanted to know if that was an option?

 

Thanks!!!

Dragster: 5.77 (Once you get the hang of it, it's all about timing your shifting.)

 

Pole Position: 58,460 (Finally completed the main race.  Shame that I crashed a couple of times or I might have had a better score.)

I'm almost sure to put up a mini-novel soon, anyone that PM's with me knows what I am talking about, lol.

A third story, a third advice/tips, a third ego gratification(lol), but truly, when it comes to me and the Dragster...

(Burgess Merideth, "Grumpy Old Men")...

"I really like that story".
