1st Space Gunner Entry: Yes even though this is just a minute long game it is definitely a thumb killer..... 😨

Haha!

Space Gunner is all but one-handed, lol, and I like the game, I MAY try to poop on the Bonus Party again!!!

:P

Space Hawk?

Own it, looked at it a time or two, can't really bring myself to bother figuring out what the hell is going on...

 

Space Gunner-

You DO gotta be quick on the trigger, but no matter how good you are, if you don't get a good set, you won't get a good score, so you can't just assume because you "did bad" that it was your fault, you may just not have gotten good ships to chain together and stuff.

So it's "Skilluck".

Space Hawk could literally go on forever. It’s an endurance test and to see who has the strongest thumb.

Lol not if I'm playing it. I am dreadfully bad at this game. I just don't get it at all. I've never even gotten 10k in this game, NOT KIDDING!!!! 🥺

Seriously, Man, is an example of "strokes and folks"-you KNOW I am decent. I KNOW you are decent.

Some people just don't click with certain games, is actually the fun of the HSC's, I've more or less bowed out of the 2600 HSC, managed to finish in the Silver bracket and when I look at the game list it looks like a bunch of games I stink at, haha, "planned" to finish in the Gold like the last two seasons, but on account of the games was actually surprised to even finish silver.

You already know my main weakness, and it's a BIG hole-if I gotta shoot "up" the screen, like Space Invaders or anything resembling it, I'll give you a performance to laugh at!!!

(I don't really see Space Gunner as "shooting up", as the target is fixed)

 

Worst part, I actually think/wonder that Space Hawk doesn't suck, I just can't bring myself to check it out, "too many games, too little time".

:D

I recall drifting through space during summer vacation with multi-hour sessions of Space Hawk.  I used to imagine my base had been destroyed after losing Space Battle or Astrosmash, then it was just me and my jet pack, drifting endlessly until I died.

 

Playing this on using the jzintv emulator on a Pi feels frenetic--not restful.  There's no drifting--it's just zoom, Zoom, ZOOM!  Might have to get out my Intellivision II and see how the real cart feels.

I'm new to Sharp Shot from last year's HSC.  I always feel good about my score, until I see the box art; "Specially designed for children 4 and up!".  /sigh

IMG_5975.thumb.jpg.f01a5290de0416d2107713d058882f56.jpg

 

Expect to play more Space Hawk before the deadline.  Not sure I can improve on my Sharp Shot score.  I think if you miss, you miss, and there is a finite number of ships, right?

You must have changed it from drift to direct drive.  It should default to drift.  Have a look at the instructions.

I definitely play drift/quick/auto fire.  The speed of everything felt fast, like overclocked.  The hawks, the bubbles, my astronaut, it was all so much faster than I remember as a kid.  Maybe my reflexes are just horrible now, but I don't remember this being a particularly fast game.  Wondering if emulation made it faster?

Jzintv is an accurate emulator.  You mentioned no drift when playing so it sounds like it got set to direct drive.  It can change by itself with these controllers.

I still have absolutely no idea what is going on in this game. I actually had this game as a kid. Didn't get it then, don't get it now. I have to see if I have the overlays lying around somewhere as that may help a little.... I've read the manual, didn't really help me... I will give it a go this weekend. The goal here is to 'try' and get better at it... 🙄

Rick, just shoot stuff.  ;)

 

Think of Space Hawk like an Asteroids port to Intellivision. 

 

You could just spin in circles shooting stuff or use your jetpack to move around.  There are "quick" and "smooth" rotations using the disc and those are set with the keypad.  You can also change how your jetpack works with "drift" or "direct".  I prefer autofire, which is also turned on/off via the keypad.  Play a game and if you don't like how your controls work, try changing quick/smooth or drift/direct.  There are really only four combinations.

 

Eventually you might need to use the hyperspace button to teleport out of a tough situation.

Thx, yeah it's the weirdest thing. I just cannot ever seem to control the guy right. He just shoots off into space with no rhyme or reason where's he's going. Lol the spaceships seemingly shoot bubbles at you, that's what they look like anyway. The score you got here is pie in the sky for me on this one... 🥺

I think you should pass on this game and wait for the next one to start.

That will give me a chance to move up in the standings.

It's based on classic physics: an object in motion stays in motion.  If you are moving north and want to change direction to go east, you should thrust in a south east direction to counter your north momentum.  A regular space hawk is worth ten times the points of a bubble and a small space hawk forty times.

Yep, I found the overlay this morning so hopefully that helps... 👍

Man, I just got 103K on Space Hawk, and thought my previous best was 150K so I didn't take a picture!  I hope to do even better, so... :)
