High Score Competition (July: Midnight/Midnite Mason)


Recommended Posts

I beleive the keyboard works. I have used it on Classic99 with Miner2049er. Arrow keys to move and 'Q' to jump.


The keyboard works, but have you tried that in level 3, gee that's difficult the accuracy needed to jump, I almost managed it the complete it.

(Okay I see 3 hours left EST time, will try it with a Joystick on a real TI).

Hey sweeeet!!! Congrats Chris, and thanks to globeron for hosting month #2 of the TI-99/4A Hi Score competition!!


This was a tough game and one I simply could not master. It kicked my butt, actually. :)


Chris, since you're the winner, it is your duty to select a new game for the month. We have--so far--had a maze game and a strategy platform game. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us this month!!!


The top post will be updated to show the month #2 winner.

Thank you! Miner 2049er is a harder game than I remember, either that or I just really was not that good.


So I have been thinking of what game to have the October competition. Well this game I have chose I spent quite a few hours playing.


Of course, not going to be your typical space shooter or even an arcade style lets go old school, well as much as we can with this game being on TI.


This Months Game: Micro Pinball from Software Specialties, Inc © 1984


This game will auto load via Extended Basic. Attached is the disk image format.


This game is really all about luck of how the ball bounces so we should see some pretty high scores.


I have also decided on a prize. I have received quite a few emails about when I am going to release my Medieval Tunnels of Doom Games 1, 2, & 3 that is played with the Tunnels of Doom cartridge to the public for free.




Winner gets to choose which game disk they want, Medieval Games I, II or III ! Almost like Highlander - You can only choose one!


These games I created from 1986 to 1991 I believe using the original Tunnels of Doom Editor. Each title has 5 games on the disk. Of course the disk will come with a Software License Agreement.


This disk will be delivered digitally in .DSK format for play on an emulator or you may transfer it to original hardware. This software is not public shareware and may not be distributed.

Cool, I always liked Micro Pinball II as well. But uhm... what are the keys for this? I can only seem to use the left flipper (js99er).



on my german keyboard/Classic99, I play it with "TAB" and "+" (outer edge keys, like on a cabinet - for left&right flipper)


F8 is for Start New Game/Credit

F10 is for Shoot Ball (or 0/insert)


P is Pause, Space for Go

Got 31k+


Took a minute to figure out the "1" and "=" controls, but once that was in the bag, I hit the 31k on my second game... The key is the multipliers.... I couldnt get one on my first game, but I will do what I can after dinner. :)


Good game selection, Chris. :)


I was really hoping for Parsec, but this one will do nicely. ;)
