Intellivision HSC Season 13 - Game 8 - TRON: Deadly Discs

Is it more advantageous to stop moment and attack or to be able to attack whilst moving? 

 

I'm not saying either way; just stating my preference, regardless of its impact on scoring.

To me...the stopping is no big deal because it gives me a split second to line up my shot or throw.  I feel like I am less accurate if I am throwing my disc on the move all the time.

Eventually, I either get hit with a brown disc and I get stabbed by my orange friend.... or the orange guys swarm me while I’m getting my disc back and they stab me together like I’m a shish-kabob ! 
 

I definitely cannot go on forever LOL ! plus I have a well-documented shaking problem when my score gets high and a game gets intense.

It’s one thing to run around the forum at one million points. It’s another thing at 2 and 3 million and 4 million and so on. Even though the game doesn’t get more difficult, It gets more and more intense as my score climbs higher ! I assume that’s natural for this game :)

So you play with two controllers?  It's not easy playing that way but if you can master it, it's definitely an advantage.  Whatever way you play, if you can get two million you can get twelve million because the game doesn't get any harder. 

Hi Mr. Me! ... No, I can’t use that overlapping controller trick. It’s too bulky for me and it’s awkward because I never used that method (like Matt). However, I know a guy who knows a guy who Loves the overlapping controller trick! To each his own! Like Gentleman said... he loves it.... for Night Stalker, Discs of Tron and D&D; and I’ve heard that before !! 
 

And one day, I’ll break every record on this game (NOT) LOL. I was really good in 1983 but I’m a little less energetic at my age and my arms, shoulders and hands get tired so I can’t go on even if I wanted to. 
 

For example, I could probably match Matt on Worm Whomper skill-wise but my fingers and thumbs just cannot handle the pain like when I was a teenager. 
 

if I was competing in 1983/84 ..... Man .... I would be some competitor !!!!!

This is nearly the same as my top Tron score from last season. I don’t know if I’ll be able to score much higher.

So you use a controller in each hand?

No! Just one controller the old fashioned way. The only game that I’ll use 2 controllers is mocrosurgeon. I move the probe with the left disc and shoot with the right disc (simultaneously). And the same with Dracula. I move the zombie with my right disc. But I haven’t played those since the 90’s !!!

2nd Entry - A little improvement. Tried to get through the upper right door, didn't fit perfectly I guess and then I was toast..... Hard to clear rounds when those orange guys each take 4 hits.... 🙄

Lol. Disintegrated by the blue guys. If he gets zapped by the orange guards, that’s the only time he stays on screen.

After 1 million points, this game is awesome. Fighting those orange guards is a blast.

Great score. I kind of wish the game only had the orange guys at 1 million though. The guys with the discs (especially the brown disc guy) makes conquering the orange guys extremely difficult...... The orange guys are hard enough, lol

I completely agree with you. I hate the guys with the brown discs. As soon as you get hit once by them, you are toast if there is a guard nearby. Can be very frustrating.

The impressive thing about this death was me charging the guard because I lost track of the hit count and thought he died on the last throw. Whoopsie.

3rd Entry - Finally had a big game. It helps having every single doorway opened. 👍

Ahhh Man! You just pushed me to third place ... just by a whisper !!! And with Mr. Me being fashionably late on his entry, that’s fourth place LOL. (Kidding Senior Me!!) - Super job competing after a million Rickster :)
