ROUND 12 - SEASON 9


COLECO-star-wars-front.jpg





You're at the controls of LUKE's X-WING FIGHTER, heading straight for the DEATH STAR. Your mission: to destroy it before the EMPIRE seeks its revenge on the REBEL base. Lock your sights on attacking TIE FIGHTERS and blast them with your proton torpedoes. Race along the DEATH STAR's surface, firing on giant towers. Finally, dive full throttle into the DEATH STAR's equatorial trench. You'll need split-second timing to avoid all the obstacles as you streak through the trench in search of the main reactor. Hit it and you've blown the DEATH STAR out of existence! MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU.

Star Wars: The Arcade Game - 876,195

 

Full disclosure: I achieved this score on real CV hardware, but using an NES controller that had been modified to work with the system. Is that permitted for the HSC?

This is the first game I ever played for an AtariAge High Score Club. I'm loving the concept... a great way to enjoy some "new" games in my collection.

 

Although I've played the real arcade game many times, I'd never tried the CV version before. I must say, I could really have done without the inverted control scheme, but otherwise this is a quality port. I was particularly impressed by the tower stage and later trench levels. The R2D2 sound effects were pretty good for the hardware too! The Death Star explosion was a little disappointing though, but that's a minor quibble. A very impressive game. Most Parker Bros. games were really good in this era.

I'm using a D-pad for this one. I switch up controllers a lot. I even use the Super Action Controllers for some games.

I use an NES control pad as well. Either a USB one with CoolCV or one on my real CV hardware. I certainly hope it's permitted! :)
