~ Gold Medal Tier ~





here are the rules:

players matched up below post your scores here in this thread.

games have been randomly picked from all games played in Season 4.

game selection / difficulty settings will be the same as used during the season, unless otherwise noted.

playing and posting as often as possible makes it more fun!

single elimination - lose and you're out, win and move on.

new scores only - scores from earlier in the season are not eligible.

in the case of a tie both players move on.

My draw of NCG as opponent and the odds of winning for me reminded me of this scene :grin: . Please don't watch if you're easily offended. Lyrics and imagery are just a tiny bit explicit:

 

 

Now let's rock. The cornered beast fights back. New score: 122,230.

 

My previous score almost doubled, and beat your score from the season, NCG - by a very small margin. I am very happy with my score, and I am having a lot of fun playing this fine game. I am also quite sure that you will still beat me, but as I said: at least you'll have some work to do to advance. Good luck!

Astroblast - 15,325

 

Wow, I have a tough matchup against oyamafamily for a first round! I'll give it my best shot though. This is a game that I wanted to revisit after the season anyway. Paddle games are not my best category of games. Good luck Wilson! Your first score is higher than my best so I have my work cut out for me.

ASTROBLAST RIGHT DIFFICULTY A (ADVANCED) - SECOND TAKE - 85,700

(Took me many resets to reach this feat. And looks like my score would be on the TOP 3 if I played hard on Season 4, Regular Week 24.)

 

Remember the TOP 3 scores on Astroblast:

300,305 LidLikesIntellivision (+16) (+4)

106,725 Gorfy (+15)

60,725 Northcoastgamer (+14) (+5)

 

Pay special attention in this video:

78,270

probably my 3rd or 4th time breaking 30k.

 

Crap. Now I have to play more. I can pretty consistently get to 30K or so, but only every once and a while do I get on a roll and go beyond.

 

I love playing games where the hit detection is iffy and you only get one shot on screen at a time. Look, my shot went right through that guy and now I have to wait for it to reach the other side of the screen before I can shoot again. Never mind, he killed me while I was waiting.

It's your turn, VOODOO_CHILLY! Before you ask, I used Mouse as Paddle to play Astroblast.

 

ASTROBLAST NEW TAKE, DIFFICULTY AA - 301,775 (Game stopped at this point with 98 lives)

(A correction: at the opening of video below, I wrote "SOUND OFF", but I recorded audio and set volume to 100 on Stella - I played Astroblast WITH sound)

I've tried countless times, but things just never again fell into place. Now there's wordplay...

 

I raise the white flag, NCG. Closest I got to my current high score was just over 100k. And I won't have much time to try any more this weekend. Congratulations on your great score and best of luck in the next rounds!

I guess I will join the concession parade as well. I think I spent more time playing the game this week than any week before, but I've just got too much going on this weekend to put any more into it. Despite it being a flickery, bug-ridden piece of #$@&, I've actually enjoyed playing Universal Chaos.

 

Congratulations S.BAZ, good luck on the next round.
