5200 OE HSC Challenge 10/2020 Gremlins

Recommended Posts

For October, we'll have an easy one and plenty of time to run up scores. Play Gremlins on default, using real Atari 5200 systems and Atari Mfg controls. -1 HSCpt for use of period analog sticks. Only modern exceptions are Flashcarts/SD loaders running original Roms. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

Round ends when month does...👻

Most AtariSoft games are ports of Atari originals, but does anyone else think that in this case the AtariSoft Apple II game might be the original?   This game really has the look and feel of a game ported from the Apple (as was Choplifter, Ultima, Autoduel and many others)  The limited color pallete and lack of sprites are the big giveaways that a game was originally programmed for the Apple.

Similar to Tandy CGA games of the era too

where can I get an emulator that works on the computer because I don't have this game

I don't use emulation myself, but I know others use Altirra... http://www.virtualdub.org/altirra.html

 

and kat5200... http://kat5200.jillybunch.com/

 

Good luck!  Maybe some emulator users can give you some tips if needed.

I was going to play more this weekend, but didn't get power back until late last night.

I’m sorry to hear it.  You may want to start a topic in the main 5200 area, and someone will probably be able to help you out.  I wouldn’t sweat this Gremlins contest though, for this “OE” round, an emulator score wouldn’t count anyway...

Only original equipment allowed in this sub-HSC. We do allow modern substutute carts though, running original Roms. We don't insist on an actual cart of each and every game. :) I can offer you the consolation prize of suggesting a game you'd like run, that hasn't run yet in 2020. Just pick something that you can run on an actual 5200 console. I'm setting up November's game this evening.

October's game concludes with DamonicFury unleashing some of that on the Gremlins for the win this month.👍 Thanks to all who played and gave something different a shot. Next round will be up in moments.
