This growing and shrinking also reminds me a little of the somewhat psychedelic C64 game Alice in Videoland. It is probably more than 30 years ago I played it. Somehow I doubt it is on any Atari developer's list of games to port...


Yikes! Might still be fun though!


Seems already I've hit the crunch on Gyruss with 2 warps to earth again and about the same score:






Probably won't count my score but after the randomizer dished up level 17 hard. Level 16 very hard (though I did test it so it must be doable - needs a lot of restarts to figure out the first section) level 15 looks good. On my 4th go I got lucky and levels 6,1,8,4,10,6 again either the randmomizer is broken or i wrote down the wrong level (hopefully), Level 8 was not so bad afterall. Took me a few goes to get used to the default speed but you can change it [1-5] + [6] on top of them to vslow walk.


Should have said you can press [START] to redo the current level - usually when you have wasted all the pills or lifts, this will clear any score you have made on the level, or [SELECT] to bank your score and go on to the next level anyway ;-)

One game of Gyruss and I'm reminded that my thumb will agree to play 1x per day. 


Gyruss 113,950

Block 82


Can you tell which game I haven't gotten the hang of yet?

Gyruss :evil: This is why I like the quickshot so I can use trigger for the waves and thumb for a break when I need  an intense blast or to mop up the middle section!


OK Table time...

I recommended HSC season 17 at atarionline.pl - the best site in Poland. Maybe some Polish players will join the fun :)



Thanks for douing that Caco :thumbsup: We used to have a few Atarians from Poland play (as you know!)


I'll start the next poll tomorrow, perhaps just another regular round as things are fairly quiet here :ponder:
