Congrats to Kermit!!!

 

As to the games...

What did we play?

:D

Lol, I remember Pitfall 2 being good to me, but when I looked at the list of the games played this year, I'm scratching my head as to how I even wound up in the silver bracket, especially petering out like I did!

 

Congrats to all, for sure, and Thanks as always to Vocelli, I know this is a lot of work for you!

Thanks for another great season.

 

*Favorite Games from Season 11

(Pitfall II and Moon Patrol, managed to set new personal best scores for both)

 

*Most Surprising Game from Season 11

(The End and Robot City, homebrews continue to be innovative and high quality)

 

*Worst Game from Season 11

(Donkey Kong Jr. & Congo Bongo, as much as we are told Coleco didn't sabotage the 2600 ports, the evidence seems to disagree)

Thanks again @Vocelli for organizing a great season and your efforts keeping the scores up-to-date even with your busy schedule.   

 

Playing HSC let's me find games I wouldn't have tried on my own and finding a few gems that will play on my own after the season.

Thanks to all for the comments and to @Vocelli for organizing this contest.

 

My all time favorite 2600 game is "Millipede", and nothing we played dethroned it from my top spot.  My second favorite this season is "Robot City", an excellent homebrew.

 

For most surprising, I pick "Empire Strikes Back" and "Fireball". I did not expect a "shoot the hell out of imperial walkers" game to have so much strategy.  I have never cared for "breakout" style paddle games, but just couldn't stop playing Fireball.

 

The worst games were "Dishaster" and "Strategy X".  Dishaster was just plain boring once learning the strategy.  The controls for Strategy X were terrible, especially with the lack of diagonal movement.  After playing a couple games of the original arcade version on mame, I realized it's a pretty terrible port.

 

As a group, I was disappointed with the Imagic games.  As much hype as they get, I was expecting better.  When ranking all the games from this season, none of the Imagic titles made my top 10, but multiple made my bottom 10. They get kudos for detailed sprite graphics, but the game play/design was often lacking. The difficulty level either never increased enough (Atlantis) or it ratcheted up to the point of ridiculous too quickly (most other games).  We even replaced Cosmic Ark with another game because of an ill-thought out design that allowed for infinite point leeching.

First off, congratulations Kermit! I guess it really is easy being green, hmm? ;)

 

And my picks:

Top 2:
Moon Patrol
Pitfall II: Lost Caverns

Most Surprising 2:
Super Cobra (I actually got a cartridge of this second hand, only to have it turn out to be a PAL cartridge. :( )

Atlantis (This time I got a working cartridge.)

 

Least Favorite 2:
Spike's Peak (Looks good but doesn't play well.)
Dishaster (Great for curing insomnia.)

Alright, I gave it some thought, meditated, prayed to the Atari gods, slept on it, mulled it over, and finally have my season picks:

 

Favorites

Pitfall II - I’m proud of myself for how dedicated I proved to be at getting a perfect score here. I really enjoyed making my way through the game and know I’ll end up doing it again at some point. 

 

Robot City - I want to get even better at this one bc it proved to have a lot of complexity to it, and it was just a lot of fun!

 

Most Surprising 

Star Voyager - I wouldn’t say I gravitate towards first person space shooters (ha) but I found myself really liking this one. Didn’t hurt that I got in a groove and really impressed myself. 

 

Fireball - I like paddle games, and I like breakout, but I was surprised how much I liked this one. Makes me want to track down a supercharger and play it on cassette. 

 

Worst

Spike Peak - this frustrated me and felt unresponsive.

 

Dishaster - for such a silly idea, I wanted it to be good, but it was...not.

 

I like these season reviews we do here!

Vocelli:

 

Best Game:

Millipede - Loved it as a kid. So much is going on at one time. 5 SPIDERS once you get 300,000k. So challenging and fast!

Plaque Attack - Once again... fast and furious action. Activision's scoring system is always GREAT!

 

Most Surprising:

Mountain King - Great ideas here. Find a flame with a flash light while listening to a sound. Take the flame to the temple. Enter the temple. Get the crown.

Take the crown to the mountaintop. I never played anything like it when it came out. Still love it today.

Solar Storm - I don't think I ever played it before. It was surprisingly good.

 

Worst:

Spikes Peak - Need I say anything.

BMX - I spent 30 minutes crashing on the course just to get a high score. Silly.

Best: Millipede, Mountain King

Most Surprising: Star Trek, Subterranea

Worst: BMX, Pitfall 2 (a very well made game that I just don't enjoy)

 

Honorable mentions: Strategy X (kinda fun, Jackal-esque), Tower of Rubble (loved it), Venture (better than I thought/decent port), No Escape (a fun challenge/hard but addictive), Spikes Peak (wonky/but I still love it), dark cavern, Moon Patrol, Dragonfire, Super Cobra (not bad)

dishonorable mention: Empire Strikes Back 16a is TOO hard!!, Me for missing weeks 13,&  18-24.. luckily my participation in the first 2/3 was enough to carry me
