For this HSC contest I'm going to use PAL version by CBS Electronics (Australia) because of special reason - honor NADS, an Australian member who won the Atari 2600 Encyclopedia on the last official HighScore.com contest.

11900 gets me to the 10k club in B/B

Find myself almost wishing the bonus was for one of the hacks of this so I'd have am excuse to try them out. I never gave this game much attention before, but I find the scoring mechanics quite fun for the risk/reward nature of it.

I've been playing it on emulator for a bit and I'm doing alright, but I'll probably go for the high score later. I just wanted to point out, does the ghost thing that chases you out of the room remind anyone else of those masks from Super Mario Bros. 2?

I dig your avatar, Sharkham!

 

Thanks! It combines my two greatest loves, spooky skeletons and tacky nostalgic items.

 

Love yours, too, Robot Monster for better or worse is an absolute work of art.

I love the 3-D glasses on your skull. I once flew to NYC in order to see Robot Monster in the original 3-D! At the time, Grandpa Munster hung out at an Italian restaurant (called "Grandpa's" maybe, don't quite remember) there and I got to shake his hand. He sat at the front table consuming free food and wine and declaring "bon appetite, enjoy!" to everyone who walked in. Great trip!!

45 cents and in perfect condition! What days were those, the '90's?

 

Yeah. 97-ish probably. One of the thrift stores I found a lot of stuff at around that time handwrote the prices right on the cart like that in black or red pen. I got out my Kool-Aid man a couple of weeks ago to show a friend who asked about it and it at 95 written on the back.

Just to get on the board for now. Emulated with keyboard controls. Totally sucks. Extremely frustrating, just like a few years ago when we last played it. I was sure that meanwhile I have got the cart, but couldn't find it for the moment. Need to dig in that box I acquired recently...

 

Venture B/B: 1,400...

 

Not even gonna try A/A for now...
