Season 12 ~ Week 5 ~ Road Runner


Recommended Posts

Week 5

Red Label Games

Atari Red labels were produced from 1986-1990 when Atari was attempting to revive the system. These labels range in color between dark-red and red-brown. For the first year, the pictures were monochrome, then Atari switched to color pictures on the red background. The text is white, and the end label is red with white text as well. Some Red label games are re-issues of previous titles. Others were only released as a Red label. Atari also released all of their third-party licensed games with this label.

Oh heck yes! Road Runner is definitely one of my all time favorite Atari 2600 games, because how could I not love a game where the coyote always wins in the end? :lol:


I'm gonna have a heck of a time beating my all time personal best high score in this one, but here's a score to get things started.


Edit: Well, I was wrong! Here's a new personal best high score for me! :)




Road Runner (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 94,700

New to these two. I really like Road Runner; such a nice looking game! I like/hate the scoring, since a perfect run gets you a lot of points, but a missed pile of seed sets you back big time. For boxing, I got a KO on my first try in 2 rounds, but not sure how cause my next try was in 4. There’s either a knockout punch I’m missing or my hands were just done from button smashing. 


Road Runner - 45,500



RealSports Boxing - Knockout in round 2

After much practice I finally beat level 4 for the first time and broke 100K! It was kind of Pyrrhic victory though since about 10 seconds into level 5 I heard the "Crack!" noise of my joystick snapping, which promptly ended my run even though I still had two lives left. I suppose that is kind of an accomplishment in itself though since I haven't managed to actually break an Atari joystick in at least 3 years. Thankfully I have a spare but I should probably start hunting down some extra joysticks in the not too distant future :dunce:



Road Runner (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 102,900

I have to say, I am loving the fact that we have both a "Roadrunner" and a "Coyote" playing and on this thread......... very appropriate ?


Oh wow, that is kind of hilarious! :lol:


No score updates from me today, but I did put down the money to have RetroGameBoyz build me a custom Atari 2600 themed single button version of his Atari/Commodore arcade stick ( https://retrogameboyz.com/products/commodore-64-atari-2600-arcade-stick-with-push-up-to-jump-button-mold-injection-case ) so hopefully in a month or so I should get a nice responsive joystick in the mail that I won't be able to break. In the meantime I'll try to be gentle on my last surviving CX-40 :)
