5200 OE HSC Challenge 05/2021 River Raid

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Slight alteration of my intended schedule, as the regular HSC has been reading my mind :P So, we move onto River Raid from default starting bridge 1. Play using real 5200 systems, using Atari Mfg controls. -1 Hsc pt penalty for use of period aftermarket analog sticks, such as Wico. 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.

 

**Due to a recent discussion with another player, I've decided to allow temporary mods of stock controls for use. Example, say we play Super Breakout, and you open the controller and just turn the pot arm, etc**

 

Current HSC record- Bust it for a bonus point!

36,420.  That helicopter is the size of a mountain!  Imagine the debris in the river.

This game is pure joy on this system, and the original 5200 controllers are the best way to play it. Fight me.

my lifetime best is around 85k, so I might be able to give you some game still, despite the lag on my cheap tv

I really don’t foresee getting

much higher.

45,470

and -1 for using the comp pro. I’m the biggest advocate for the original stock stocks, but once the pass-through(s) get to be the size of your plane I can’t make it through.

May ends with rubeon bagging a convincing win 😎👍, while the next several spots were highly contested. Thanks to all who played, and make this unique niche relevant today. :) Our next round is ready to go, see y'all there.
