5200 HSC Season 14 Round 17 - Robotron

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the seventeenth round of the 14th 5200 HSC season!  Robotron 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 rubeon with 689,200 points.  Beat it if you can for a bonus point! 

 

As is traditional, try it with just one controller to see how well you do always firing in the same direction you’re moving.  Top three scores will get a bonus point.

Two "controller" game.

 

Not exactly my preferred platform for Atari 5200 games, but when you're away from home you take what you can get!

Wow, that's pretty cool... what kind of device is that?

It’s a New 3DS XL; not so new nowadays, but still 3D and very much XL! I brought it on the road so I could finish off Link Between Worlds during quarantine, but then realised I wouldn’t get back in time to play in round 17 so I installed a 5200 emulator on it.

 

Turns out, the emulator (A5200DS) is pretty good!

Ah nice! I should check that out. I had no idea there was a 5200 emulator on the DS.

 

My submitted score for now is 331,475 played on an emulator on the xbox. I used the xbox pad and the 2 analog sticks.

Single-controller run, back home to my 5200!  I can't recall ever being more disoriented playing a video game, this was brutal! :-D
