HSC10 Round 10: Rescue on Fractalus

Recommended Posts

"New" Pro 162763 :)

Great score :thumbsup: What got you in the end?

I'm going to set aside some daytime in the week for a serious bash on the pro challenge ;)


Rescue on Fractalus

Top Pilots



Still not sure about the HSC scoring; but enjoy playing that's the main thing and at the end of the round we can sort something out (fingers crossed!). I don't expect top players to go for 'Regular' (my score is just a target for those new to the game), but would encourage others to play in both if they have time. I also made this a catch-up round for anyone who has missed any games this season or players who want to improve on up to 3 games :) round closes Tues 2nd July 10am UK time.

On level 32 I picked up few pilots and when I landed to save another one, I was hit multiple times in short period by laser guns :(

Wish I'd kept going on my 1st go now but it was about 2am! Probably have to clear an area and then go back for the pilots... looking forward to my next sortie :)

Good scores guys :thumbsup:

Looks like Firestorm has thrown down the gauntlet [and played ROF :D ] ... I've got tomorrow lined up for my attempt :)


Will also be putting the VOTE on for the next round so add any suggestions to the Games List thread folks - NEW PLAYERS welcome to add any of their favourites too ;)

So it turns out my copy disk with the animations and high score table that saved is perhaps not a final version: After playing lelves 16&20 I left the game on the launch window screen to get a cup of tea (as we Brits do), only to return to find it had ended my go... this version let you start up to level 32 so I though it a bit odd and loaded my Original disk.... ... This had the ACTIVISION blue box pre loader but no animation (nor high score table) but the game played much slicker - even the music was quicker - noticable the fractal landscapes seemed better defined with flatter areas and mountains rather than stuff everywhere.


I think the links I posted were ok - Fandal is usally right on the money (does it have the HS table?)


Here's how I did on pro challenge with some extra detail for those who like that stuff! Ok pretend you don't :twisted:

Lv16 70,773 E44 P+3

Lv20 108,410 E64 P+1 Ace

Lv24 151,911 E70 P+2 Ace

Lv28 205,835 E97 P+3 Ace

Lv32 209,798 I was fried big time so forget about the game being too easy :D


p.s was about 20mins per level including collecting extra pilots


Vote up next...

Finally had/made time to take a crack at "Pro Challenge' tonight... I made it through level 16 pretty easily and struggled with 20, needing a quick refuelling stop on the mothership. I had about a half-load of pilots on 24 before getting pummeled with lasers before I could boost back to the ship. Yikes.
