2020/2021 HSC Rd. 9 Ballblazer

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Ballblazer settings: 6 minute game, Human vs Droid 3. Round ends March 18th.

If 2 or more players manage a shutout (10-0,) whoever has the highest remaining time on the clock will get top points.

PLEASE NOTE Ballblazer will go to attract mode after a few seconds, so hit the pause button when you make your last point or be fast with your camera!

 

Bonus: Poker points

If you have time remaining on the clock, use the numbers to make a poker hand. Since the maximum is four digits, your fifth 'card' will be 'wild'

Example: the picture below has a 4, 2, 8, and 6. With the wild card, you could have a pair of eights. 

The top three poker hands will receive 1-3 bonus points

10-0 - 4:42.9

Bonus: three of a kind (4's) w/ 9 2 kickers

 

My only "tip" on this one after legit playing it the first time is to never let the computer get the ball. If they get it, I never figured out how to take it away from it :)

I think you run into them and hit the button like you're firing the ball and if you hit them right you knock the ball away from them.

I don't know when the last time I played Ballblazer was, but this was a great opportunity to bust out my brand-new 7800 arcade stick from @Bratwurst!  It's awesome, can't wait to try some other games.  First game, remembering how to play:

10-0

2:30.9

 

Oops, it took a while to figure out how to even get a human vs. droid match and I think this was vs. Droid 1.  Scratch this score, I'll play some more.  It seemed awfully easy!

 

[Edit]By the way, the bonus point system is really fun.  I like that.  Nice way to spice things up in the HSC.

New score of 10-0 with a time of A:KJ.0. I will call the 0 a ten and I will add a Queen for a royal flush.

Score of 10-2 with 1 minute left to play.  I was not able to get a picture before the screen reset but will try to hit pause faster next time.  On a side note; this game is super fun.

Score of 10-0 and a new time of 4:53.4.  Three fours for the poker hand.

 

Do you get more points for shooting it instead of running it in?  I made a shot at 5:53 and was up 2-0.  I obviously did not score twice in 7 seconds.

You get more points if you are farther from the goal. The manual says you can score up to 3 points if you're far enough.
