An impenetrable shield of light, 99 sectors deep, is encompassing the planet. You, alone, must cruise from beam to beam, casting lariats of laser bolts into white saucers, red zig bombs, yellow chirpers and more!

I am actually quite rusty, but somehow I picked way more lives than usual in that one game.

Not even going to pretend to give us a chance this time around, eh? 🙂

 

Guess that answers the question of whether we'll still be crushing records again this season or not! Lol!

Doesn't look like it's gonna be much of a contest, but a little bonus for the high scorer this week!

I've done this some in the 2600 HSC, seems to have went over well.

Repro patch, obviously(do I look rich?), but still quite nice-not shilling them, you all know where the for sale section is, partner handles most of the sales here.

Wish I could offer them for all patch scores, but my supply is a bit limited on this one.

Probably 'grats in advance to cmadruga, but never know!!!

(I wouldn't qualify, regardless, but I'm looking at, like...15k, if I am lucky anyway...).

Thanks to Rickster8 for giving me the go ahead to do this, best of luck everyone!!!

Here's why you should all have hope... a video of myself stumbling through Sector 24. 

(It's ok to laugh at my miss at the end.)

Been playing and resetting, winding myself up all day with this.

One of my favourite games and this is by far my best score.

So, hopefully cmadruga doesn't get unrusty or I've no doubt it will be beaten :).

Nice to see HSC is still going :)

Thanks Matt and thanks for persuading me ;)

Not sure I'll have time for every game but I'll play when I can and couldn't pass up on Beamrider :)

VERY NICE, (and INSANE!) on both of the 100K scores so far, I'm super impressed!

Glad their is competition for #1 this week!

This game eats me up, INT, 2600, 5200, it's a pretty equal opportunity destroyer for me.

:D

I love it on all the systems it was released on and I think there were at least seven.

Didn't realise that it was originally written for Intellivision and then ported over to the other systems.

Shows off how fast the intellivision can be to all those that accuse it of being slow lol
