5200 HSC Season 14 Round 15 - Centipede

Recommended Posts

Welcome to round fifteen of the 5200 HSC season 14! Centipede won the poll by a single vote. Let's play this on Easy and take a break from the murderous Spider that appears on Standard and Hard. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.

 

The current high score was set by phuzaxeman with 125,795 points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point! 

 

Round ends Sunday, August 8th, 2021 @9pm EST

They call that Easy Play?!  Anyway, always great to get out the track-ball!

 

BTW, that was a sadistic tease saying the spider wouldn't come out on Easy.  I spent my entire game running away from that lunatic.

It wasn't meant to be a tease... the Spider just behaves more or less like the arcade version on Easy (which admittedly is still fairly vicious.)  But he's a heat-seeking missile on Standard, and damn near instant death on Hard.  It's odd how they rated the difficulties in this game.  I think I would have gone with Arcade, Hard, and Ultra-Challenging.

made a little progress, but man this game is unforgiving. I can't remember ever being so humiliated by an Easy mode.

Just realized that I played on Standard Setting. I hope it counts nevertheless (Easy Play should definitively an advantage)

I can't improve, because I start my vacation just at the moment.

2 weeks trip to Baltic Sea, so I have no problems with quarantine when I'm back because of staying in domestic territory.

Yes, no worries, I won't penalize you for playing at a harder than requested difficulty!  Enjoy your vacation!

When the spider goes straight across, go up and around him.
