Whelp, there goes my weekend

 

Bonus: Stack Game - 50

And unlike that arcade stacker, you at least (hope) that it’s not rigged. Nice job to whoever made this!

Easier to control than Intellivision Night Stalker I’d say. Game A definitely up’d the difficulty, but then I got in a groove. Gotta check out the manual to see if I’m missing anything. 

 

Dark Cavern - 61,000

Dark Cavern (Game 1 A/B): 183,000

Stack Game: 50 - Such an addictive game in just 2K

Dark Cavern:  132,000 - Now THIS takes me back! The challenge of shooting the yellow robots in time to get a bonus life really gets you going!

 

Stack: 38 - Reminds me of the game you see in the arcades where you can go for a standard prize or try for a bigger prize... albeit with the final row rigged so that you can't win.

I may have to watch something to see how to improve, the robots seem to corner me pretty easily.

 

The best strategy is to keep moving when possible.  Try not to make yourself visible for too long.  I usually take cover and, when the robot gets close, pop out to shoot then run away.  Takes practice but it can be done.

@Jason_Atari, Stack Game is really a 1K game (with room to spare!).  @bluswimmer had to "expand" it to 2K to make it work with the Harmony cartridge.  Super impressive.

I try to let them come around a corner to me, because if you have a little distance  from them, you can get your shot off and get away before they fire back.

Dark Cavern: 127,000.  Stack Game: 42.  If ever there was a 2600 game that would have benefited f rom a dual joystick setup...

Stack Game Bonus: 62

 

This game reminds me of the visual field test at the eye doctor.    Click when you see the light or this case the edge lined up!  Quite a fun game for its simplicity.

I want to move just a little faster. And also not have the robots shoot after they die 🤬 Got in a sweet spot, but it took some practice and patience.

 

125,000
