Vocelli, thank you for dedicating this to my mother.  I owe you one.

 

And Mom, I will always love you.

Haven't played this one much so looked through the manual and set a goal to get to the patch score.  The game gets kind of frantic, but reading the instructions really helped, as it usually does.

 

Score = 57,970

 

Bonus = 1 zero

No kidding, it's -8°F here in St. Paul at the moment! Brrrrr! 🥶

 

I played Frostbite for about an hour tonight and I think this might be a "One and done" round for me. Not only did I beat my previous personal best high score by a good 10,000 points but managed to randomly end with a score with three zeros in it for the bonus, so I might be calling it good for this round :)

 

 

Frostbite (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 100,310

Bonus: 3 zeros

Ok, I thought I was doing really well, then I took a second look at the scores here. Yowza. Fun game, but I might need to read up on strategy. 

 

Frostbite - 27,250

It kinda blows my mind how absurdly good at this game so many people are, cause to me it feels brutally difficult. I can't see myself ever doing any better than the 100K score I got last night, and that was only good enough to land me 62nd place in the HSC all time rankings: http://hsc.statotronic.com/searchgame.php?game=206

 

Frostbite is like Q*Bert's A-hole brother from the north pole :lol:

Starting to get the hang of it again. Used to be pretty good at it...I think? 

 

If not for me forgetting to let go of the stick I'd probably double my score. I swear, half my deaths are my own, easily avoidable "joystick errors" 😄

Slightly better score

This one is another goodie (I'm saying that a lot this season). If ever there was a game that was "easy to play, but hard to master" it's this. I've got an initial stab at a score here, and will doubtless be trying this some more as the week goes on

Okay...i killed myself at 17000 for +3 bonus points 😃

 

It looks like the bonus is for your official (final) score. So if you don't break that by much, you'll have to decide if it's worth submitting 😬

Frostbite:  186000

 

Got Lucky and finished with 3 Zeros.

My high is 258K... so I have a bit of work to do.

154,600 - Two zeroes.

 

My mother taught me the value of persistence and perseverance, and it's paid off once again.

Yeah,  it's only for the final score, I know.

 

Believe it or not. It's my first time ever playing this game. Guess i have to go for a perfect 100000 😃

Frostbite: 333080

Bonus: 2 zeroes

 

I had a 3 zero score... we'll see if that costs me later 🥶

 

This also fell short of my personal PB by about 6000 points. It gets crazy fast, but good thing the game is generous with lives.

DID YOU KNOW?

Frostbite was released by Team Pixelboy and Hikaru Games for use on ColecoVision and Adam systems.

It was recently played on CV HSC - Season 14 / Round 20. Check out this reference.
