Greetings and Happy New Year! I hope everyone has had a good holiday. It's a new year, a new start and a new season for Colecovision High Score Club. I've been busy remodeling our basement for the last couple of months after work and weekends so I haven't had any spare time for gaming. But that is going to change soon. Time for some CV action. Best of luck and have fun!

New score: 44,040 pts. Not sure I can improve much more than this. It seems like you don't have enough time to run less than top speed, and if you run at top speed, too many seals hit you. I'll give it a try again sometime later this week and see if I can surprise myself.

Oh, funny. I didn't hear about that


I don't use cars so it hasn't affected my gaming. :lolblue:


Whatever will people do??

It was already pretty silly. People have to get out of the car and go inside the store and pay anyway. Now they just won't have to wait for the attendant to get done yapping with the folks in the other car. Should actually save people time if anything.


Except maybe for gamers who want to make a couple turn-based strategy moves while someone pumps their gas...

Now I'm definitely getting better (and starting to enjoy the game more). I can do much better than this, I just had a run where I was averaging 10k per stage but botched it in stage 4.

For me, it's about finding a fine balance between grabbing as many green flags as you can and finishing the level quickly enough. The time bonus isn't worth diddly squat, in my opinion; however, if you slow down too much to grab all the green flags, you fail the level and don't have enough time to finish. It's basically a game of "don't run into stuff".
