One part of me wants to spends a little more minutes on these games, another part of me thinks I've had enough for now. Since I have about 0 minutes of retro gaming time in the work weeks, at least I have no reason to argue about extending the round.

Have returned from a road trip to Wales and Ireland with a little help from the ferry!

 

Had a crazy blast on Shadow World - practice capping the landed pod on stage 1 - shoot the plane thing, get the orb thing from the lake then fly over the top of the active pod where the stuff comes out, might have to move around a bit. [Space] returns you to your base if you are quick enough! Scoring is probably flawed as you can race through the levels with little score. IF NOT TOO LATE POST LEVEL REACHED PLEASE!

 

My best 52,300 level 6

 

Twerps next up... 672 reached Level 3, starts of a bit steady will try again... 1,521 level 3 don't have to shoot all the things to pass them and can rescue multiple twerps (walk over holes and press fire) snake around to try to avoid enemies!

 

R9 Will use the runner up game from the last poll which is still open so if anyone didn't vote or only voted for Shadow World & Twerps please vote or post your choice on the poll thread ;-)

For games like this I try to make sure I have a pen and paper handy too :)

 

It's funny that we're starting Twerps as I just heard Rob of Player/Missile podcast fame say he wasn't sure if Twerps was ported to the Atari (Episode 25:  I somehow never listened to this podcast until recently, so I've been 'catching up')

I think the fantastic P.M.Podcast has restarted again recenly - I'm on catch-up too!

Twerps - 1490 after first attempt. 

Shadow World - 123100 - I know this one very well as I used to play it a lot. Unfortunately, at least on Altirra, Wave 9 is barely playable as the whole game (including your ship and gun) slows down to the point where it is impossible to shoot down Crystal Pods. I don't know if this is an issue on a real Atari, since I don't have one... yet. :) Anyway, Wave 9 was my last.

 

I think level 9 is the same on real hardware - seemed to remember it being impossible?!

Posting up a Shadow World score so at least can get on the list!

 

What do you do when one of the pods is able to land?  I haven't figured that out yet.

 

You read my post above (above)!!

 

Improvements... level 4 on twerps with less score - the fuel bonus is not better than eliminating all the alien lines. Shadow World Level 7 57,700

 

SHALL WE HAVE THE MUCH LOVED ROUND EXTENSION? YES I HEAR YOU CRY!! PROBABLY TO FRIDAY 10TH JUNE AS I'M STILL ALL OVER THE PLACE...

Small improvement from me on Twerps to 1793 level 5, starts to gets a bit crazy, quite a nice game as the fuel use and penalty for wasting twerps kick in. Not a bad round, both games fun to play for a few goes. AtariSphinx takes the win :thumbsup: with Dope in runner up spot ;-)

Thanks for playing everyone, let me know if I've missed anything! 

 

Will start uo R9 next...

274 on Twerps.  14000 for Shadow World.  I found them both pretty frustrating and unfamiliar, but I'm glad to have played them.

Shadow World is a blast with 2 players simultaneous or even your mate just space barring you out to safety

Twerps was ok once you get into it on the harder levels, hadn't played it before this roune either.

Will get the Season 19 tables up to date sometime next week... hopefully!
