what's the best timing to avoid the boulder. I just rely on luck, which is not a very reliable method.

more Mountain King tips: You can collect a nice bonus by finding the flame quickly. have your escape route memorized and do the same route every time. Favor ladders whenever possible, the game is a lot more forgiving with jumps to ladders than to ledges

Great music and a neat idea don’t make up for shite jumping and bats. 

 

Spike’s Peak - 17,000

I can’t tell ya how I got that score, but I’m not getting past the rock screen with Mr. Molasses here. 

 

California Games - BMX - 20,370

Posting this while rocking out to its tunes. Keep gettin’ back on your bike lil’ dude. 

 

In summation, if the mountains are anything like these games, I’ll stay inside.

California Games (BMX) - 37150

Mountain King - 3810

Spike's Peak - 3000

 

California Games - BMX specifically has been a personal favorite for me for a long time

Mountain King - Obviously wasn't "getting" something in this one

Spike's Peak - Either I couldn't figure it out or something was messy with my emulator setup. I was pressing a button to move forward, but couldn't figure out how to move backwards or jump or do literally anything. Best I could do was make it to the thing on the right and stand there until I died. I'm not sure what the issue is for me.

Instead of trying to complete the course as fast as you can, I go as slow as I can and do as many tricks as possible to get a score.

Spike's Peak: 148000

 

Mountain King: 36690

 

BMX: 25470

 

It's been a rough couple of weeks for me, including a kidney stone, an surgery, anesthesia side effects causing intense muscle pain, and a follow-up surgery in a week or two.  The only game I really spent much time on before all this drama was Spike's Peak.

 

I figure I'll post what I have and if I feel well enough to play later tonight or tomorrow will try to get something better to post for Mountain King and BMX.  I really want to at least pass the first level of Mountain King - it just may not happen this week.

 

I just started reading an Atari Compendium page about the Easter eggs in Mountain King - http://www.ataricompendium.com/game_library/easter_eggs/vcs/26mountainking.html.  I really wish all the development time spent on these elaborate Easter eggs was instead spent improving the joystick movement, especially when it comes to jumping.  One thing I'm learning trying all these games which are new to me this HSC is I'm not a fan of games which respond slowly to joystick input.

BMX Mountain Bike Racing : 99,990

Here is the video showing the gameplay.

If people deem it’s not in the spirit of the game to play like this, I won’t have a problem with my score not being accepted 👍

Here is how approached Spikes Peak,

this my run done a few years ago.

At the time I thought I was the first person to roll this one, but I saw an Italian scoreboard from the Eighties that has a score of 999,950 so I’ll happily take second
