Recommended Posts

Welcome to the fourteenth round of the 14th 5200 HSC season!  H.E.R.O. won the poll by two votes. Play using the default settings. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The high score was set by Northcoastgamer with 330,635 points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point!

Every miner has a backstory when I play. The guy on Level 12 took the job to pay for his oldest son's wedding, which is in a couple of months.  Sorry, mate, the lava rocks got me 😢

I could hear poor Pierre banging his pickaxe against the rock down below, but a dynamite misfire at the very entrance sealed both our fates!

Ah, you've gone rogue and changed your ID... I like it ! 

Since late '16, lots going on with a band I left in '92... Too much going on, and I guess that is good, so after the new album is done , I hope to find some time to get back on board gaming with you guys !

Unfortunately, there is no way to pass the collapsing lava trap on this version of the game unless you are using analog controls. You can't hover with digital controls. That means starting with level 14 you are guaranteed at least one instant death on that screen, and possibly several more until you push on through to the next safer section.  It kills the fun, for me, at least playing on Altirra with keyboard control.

That part's not much fun with the analog controls either, if you ask me 😕

Dr. Phillips was helping the mining orphans on level 18 when the roof collapsed. I lost control of my heli-pack right above the superheated rocks and that was the end of us both 😞
