"Collect" the money and take it to your hideout avoiding the law. Rob the armoured (white) van for some serious loot. To complete a level collect three "prizes" and then a van (you can collect vans at any time also), on the 1st level there are no prizes. Indicator on top right shows what to collect :)

 

Scoring: Page 8 of the manual on atarimania has the scoring and rankings :cool: We will play for ranking then score. With a bonus point for anyone beating HSC record score of 15,190 held by MaPa.

 

Bonus Games

New Getaway

There is a New Map for Getaway from the pod cast guys" PlayerMissile" and "Inverse Atascii" so we can play that as a bonus. You can also create your own using the tool provided :thumbsup: [1pt per player ranking then score]

 

Kaverns of KFest

Keeping on the podcasters theme we'll checkout the quick play Kaverns of Kfest from Kevin Savetz as a bonus game [1pt for playing +1pt for highest PAL and NTSC scores] :)

14030 Hardened Criminal!

 

Close to MaPa's HSC record of 15190!

Sounds like someone is after a bonus point ;)

 

if you guys checkout the new version before I do - please let me know what you think. We could run two tables with combined ranking points to make the overall table or have combined scores for both games if they are similar. I've only scanned the New Getaway thread but it mentions easter eggs - not sure if we should not read this and see what we find out ourselves by playing...

Looking at the comments from HSC7 it looks like Getaway will max out, so yes to that HSC record bonus point :thumbsup:

Better: 11,750

Holy crap does it get difficult!

 

 

15190

After gathering three items "/" and catching the white car the game gets crazy and speeds up like four times. I was shocked but managed to get safely to hideout but then it was "impossible" to continue icon_smile.gif

Early attempt at the standard map of Getaway. Score $2260 = Rookie Robber.

Notice that I lost $630 and then $880 on the last two cars, money that I didn't get to stash away.

Does the game keep going on the same map, no end of level until the game eventually becomes impossibly fast? This is the first HSC game this season I've never seen before.

 

Edit: Bonus score on Kaverns of Kfest: 32570 pts (depth 1485)

Getaway - 420

Don't think I've ever played this one before

750 - probably like me you haven't read what to do and figured just collect the $ but half way through I remembered the white van did something and then there's those diamonds to collect :idea:

 

I've added more info on the first post - e.g. how to complete a level and a link to the rankings which we will use for this round so please post them you low-lifes :P :-D

I've had a lot more, but just haven't been able to get back to the hideout with it.

Two reasons why I'm not going to be so good at Getaway!

 

1) I lack the patience for a methodical approach to a game like this.

2) Time - definitely the sort of game you need a lot of that to rack up a high score with.

 

Very enjoyable though - but am I right in saying that once the police are on your tail it's almost impossible to shake them off?

 

Anyway, first go (and only, so far) - Rookie Robber - 3370 (and annoyingly, 560 not banked!)

And then Kaverns of KFest. Loved it! Twitch gaming at its finest. My weapon of choice was a Quickshot II Turbo. Definitely prefer a microswitch for this kind of game.

 

Two runs, and a high of 36052.

Standard game $8010 - Crafty Crook

post-5454-0-76843200-1490302053_thumb.jpg

 

Edit: I had a play with the new map as well and scored $2290 - Rookie Robber. I find the new map smaller than the original one. Lots of gas stations, a couple of detours with only one exit, the home base is more central but perhaps trickier to steer into. Not sure if I like it, but if my assumption it is smaller than the original game is correct, theoretically one should be able to finish the game faster as you would have less streets to drive around to find your loot.
