HSC19 (2022) R4: POOYAN + E.T. Bonus

Recommended Posts

For the record, I tried E.T. again. After a while it shifted from the start screen to the map, but then everything went grey and froze. I tried a couple different versions and a few attempts but something with my 130XE acts up and I could not bother trying something else so I'll skip this bonus game.


Also I didn't improve on Pooyan, so I'll settle with my miniscule score in this round.

Reminder this round closes tonight (21st March) at 10pm UK time, if anyone wants a couple of extra days please post. Not sure where everyone has disappeared to but here are the latest tables. If you only have the original Pooyan that is fine to play just don't use the extra lives after the initial 5 have been used! The new "no extra lives" version makes the game more enjoyable for the top players as otherwise the game takes too long to play and does not get any harder (see previous HSC plays).


Votes still needed in the R5 Poll, it's a two way tie!

I'm not around for a few days and the poll is tied (please vote manually on poll thread if you haven't voted already)  so let's have a small extension to this round, both games offer more play - try E.T. on level 9 it's not too difficult - thing to note is when you take pieces to the house (green square) E.T.'s heart is red for good or blue for incorrect pieces.


Round will end later this week!!

ET: 112435 (level 2)


Gave this one another go.   Until this week had never played an ET game (8bit or 2600).  After playing this one and even the 2600 version (the 8bit verion is better), can definitely say it's not the worst game.  In fact there is fun to be had for a quick pick up game in both versions.  Also tried level 6 and got all 10 pieces but failed to get ET home.


 Like that the HSC introduces games that would never play on our own.   Looking forward to those shooters game (s) in the poll which I have never played!

E.T. - 109,975

I thought after you sent E.T. home the first time the game continued

at a harder level, but I guess not.


Yes it ends with the bonus for time remaining - I've completed level 9 and satisfyingly E.T. has been rescued! Not too hard.


Improved on Pooyan to 203,950


New round starts tomorrow evening (FRI 25th) sorry for the delay but work and girlfriend to blame as usual :-D

littleman jr. raised his score to 50,000 for five pieces on Level 9.

I, littleman jack, also tried Level 9 and could only muster 50,000 as well (2,461 less than my previous score).

Level 9 is definitely harder with there being more pieces and more, or faster, bad guys. And I think it's harder for me due to my colorblindness as well. I think the lower levels don't have as many colors, so I didn't have to worry about having the right color as much.

E.T.'s Gone home, pooyan is stuck up a tree and it's the end of the round at last!


Congratulations to Deteacher for a comprehensive win on Pooyan with McKong putting in a decent effort for 2nd place. E.T. was not so bad afterall,I thought it was a bit too easy as the baddies didn't seem to do much, possibly a game for the little uns ? Glad we have a challenging Pooyan with the no lives, previous plays a few players got to 1m points and must have been suffering!


Thanks for playing EVERYONE , will start up round 5 after my dinnner :P
