Missile Command (Game 4 B/B)

Released By:  Atari

Left Difficulty: B

Right Difficulty: B

Game Mode: Game 4 B/B 

 

Post your scores right here in this thread, and we will add them to the list. Remember to play the game with the recommended game mode and difficulty settings as shown above so that your scores will be consistent with everyone else.

The deadline for posting scores is Midnight (EST) the evening of Jan 16, 2022

 

Bonus: By Kermit

Missile Command, Game #1, Difficulty B, max score after 16 boards.

Players not making it past the 16th board post the score they earned when their game ended.

Players completing the 16th board (the second board with the bright yellow background, green silo, and red cities) need to set the joystick down and allow the game to end.  They should report the score shown after the game is over.  If points are scored after setting the joystick down on the 17th board (unlikely, but maybe possible), these points count.

Highest score = 5 bonus points

75,000+ = 4 bonus points

50,000-74,995 = 3 bonus points

25,000-49,995 = 2 bonus points

5-24,995 = 1 bonus point

Awesome pick Kermit! Missile Command is definitely one of my all time favorite 2600 games, and Game 4 is my favorite game mode so I'm definitely excited to play this round! :-D

What a fab game. I'm in awe of the people who managed to write games this absorbing with so little computing power. Unfortunately, nobody is going to be in awe of my score here 😭, although hopefully I will improve as the week goes on

Just to let all participants know, I use both controllers to play Missile Command on my 7800 console - Sega Master System and Edladdin Super 78.

Don't be hard on yourself, it ramps up the difficulty quickly.

Game #4: 238650

 

Game #1 (First 16 boards): 90420

 

The first video is my bonus game on Game #1.  The second video is a game from a few months ago where I scored more than 400k on game #4.  With any luck, I'll improve upon that score this week.  According to the manual, the game reaches is hardest difficulty on the 13th board, so once making it to that point, it's a matter of staying consistent enough to not lose your last city on boards where you cannot earn enough points for a bonus city.

 

The only tip I have for this game other than what is in the manual is if your last city is destroyed, give cruise missiles priority over the ballistic missiles.  The cruise missiles are worth 5x as many points, giving you the best chance of hitting the next 10k point threshold for a bonus city.  This strategy is also useful for the bonus game this week, where you have a limited number of boards to score the maximum number of points.

Kermit no matter what I do you always are ahead you are truly the man

 

I know the feeling. No matter how hard I try I'm never good enough to be the best at anything, but I can usually at least make the top 5 and I'm alright with that. The only game I'm actually the best at and hold the HSC record high score for is homebrew game Lead, though that was under my old forum name "Jin" so technically I don't hold that record anymore since I changed my name :lol:
