5200 HSC Season 13 Round 19 - Joust

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the nineteenth round of this 5200 HSC season!  Joust was tied with Super Cobra and Countermeasure in the poll, but in win the die roll. Play using the Advanced setting, as the default of Skilled is a tad too easy. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The current record was set by Cafeman with 485,950 points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point.  

 

The ROM and manual can be found here:

Standings:

Cafeman - 156,600

rubeon - 155,600

Mangia-Boy - 122,300

roadrunner - 59,600

jblenkle - 51,100

Moisés Tuseto - 46,600

I don't think 2020 Cafeman can beat 20xx Cafeman's record.  But I'm glad the game is set to Advanced (I'd have suggested Expert to be honest - maybe next time).

Agreed, it should be Expert next time. 👍  I considered it this time, but felt some players might find it a bit much.  We’ll see how the scores go.

Only a little improvement, only in points not in the ranking. Attacking Cafeman's scores is not realistic for me.

Joust Advanced     ---     82,200

Difficult game for me. I hope to climb at least the 100K threshold.

 

I think Joust is a game, where you can reach high scores when you were already playing it as kid. (Unfortunately I had no 5200 or Atari computer at that time)

In the childhood you have enough time to learn steering the oystrichs exactly.

Will there be a poll for the next round?

Shoot, I totally spaced on that.  I’ll get one up shortly... sorry for the short duration on it.

Congratulations to Cafeman on another stellar Joust performance, and to rubeon as well for coming so close to matching it.  Countermeasure is up next.
