I just scored over 300K on Buzz Bombers!

Recommended Posts

I have a modded version of the Intellivision Flashback.  By "modded", I mean that it was modded to play all the games (not just the 60 on the Flashback) from the original ROMs rather than the modified versions on the actual Flashback. (I hope I'm explaining this right).  Anyway, the upshot is it's like playing the original games on the original controllers.  Well, I just had a killer game of Buzz Bombers where everything lined up and I was able to stack multiple beehives.  My final score was 311,200 which seems to be a high score as I cannot find record of a higher score anywhere.  Once I realized I was going to be racking up points due to the placement of honeycombs, I started to record the game with my phone.  I'm uploading the video to YouTube and will post it once it's ready, but I gotta warn y'all - I curse a little bit here and there.  😀

 

Anyway, here's the screen shot for now...

Looks like the world record is over 1 million on Twin Galaxies.  See link below. Great score though!  😊

Dagnab it!!!  Well, back to the drawing board!  😉

Sorry man. Didn’t mean to rain on your parade or anything. Twin Galaxies is the place for all those records if you ever want to check.

Good to know.  I'm checking it out now.  What does the percent mean?  Percent of the high score??

Yes, the top score is 100%, and the rest of the scores show a percentage of that top score.

Twingalaxies won't accept an emulated game anyway.  They have an intellivision flashback section but it sounds like this isn't exactly s flashback either.

 

Highscore.com has an emulation section and 311k would be the high score there.

Good to know!  BTW, here's the video of the second half of the game:

I've never spent much time with Buzz Bombers.  Looks like there's some strategy to the game.

Most definitely.  One of my favorite Intellivision games because of that strategy element.
