We'll give my picks another run through then have a fresh set of games, please update the games list thread guys, I think we need to pep it up a bit ;)


Fandal has the games

ataraimania has the info

Poll closes after the current round


Hi-Jack (E.S.C.) PAL Only

A lesser known, really good rescue game, the superb giant trees make you jump (and crash!).


Whistler's Brother

One of my favourite games ever.

Aquatron & Repton

Great scrolling shooter, nearly as good as defender and dropzone, really. Repton may be worth a HSC debut?


Tomb Based Extended Theme Round

some ideas:

 Pharaohs CurseLost TombKing Tuts TombPharaoh's PyramidPharoah's TombTutankhamLorien's Tomb


Ramp Rage (v1.2) & River Rat

That trbb is always sneaking his own games into the HSC... danm right I am! River Rat is a fun game, Ramp Rage is loosely River Rat on Steroids :-o



Crazy bike breaking fun!


AE & Threshold

Both played not too long ago but both decent shooters

King Tut's Tomb has been mentioned a few times, but I can't see that it was played.


All three of Lost Tomb, Pharaoh's Curse and Tutankham were part of a bonus round in season 7 (Time for Desert), i.e. July 2010 so that would be a little over 10 years ago those three were played in the HSC.


Pharaoh's Tomb doesn't seem to have been mentioned before, perhaps less known being a BASIC game but if we go by Atarimania ratings it would be the highest rated of these five.


Previously I wrote that perhaps three games are enough but if we really intend to have round 17 last for up to 4 weeks, all five games may be required for some variation. I do think though that Puzznic and Q*Bert games don't belong in the theme, even if they have graphics and names that make them sound like tomb games.
