HSC19 R11: DROPZONE


Recommended Posts

This is just isn't my jam.  Which isn't to say I don't like it, it controls superbly, and graphics are great.  I just can't move my hands fast enough to keyboard for the smart bombs and shields so I die far too quickly.

 

46770 is about as far as I'm going to get.  Just haven't had a lot of time to play this round but so it goes!

Back at the HSC :) It's been a while...

Having trouble with my X-Arcade stick; it activates some key when wiggling the stick, so Cloak is a bit unreliable. BTW I'm using the latest version of Altirra. Any advice would be appreciated.

EDIT: Fixed the problem. Found I was accidentally hitting the side button.

Arm hurts. BTW, after wave 99 it goes back to 95.

 

Useful tip: You can save all 8 Men in early waves but they become a liability by being converted to Nemesites later on, because in more difficult waves you can't possibly save them all. You can protect a smaller number (2-3 is fine), so don't feel bad about deliberately shooting excess ones you don't have a hope of protecting, when the game gets harder.

 

Also: I think thisisbountybob is right: don't save the last Man at the Drop Zone - i.e. carry it on your ship - until enemies are destroyed as the Planters won't attack the Drop Zone if you're carrying one.

ok that's it for this round, wish I had more time but we will have a catch-up and improver later in the season! Will get current standing up to date at some point. The next round has started. Thanks for playing everyone and congratulations to horsie for the win, with runner-up spot taken by oracle_jedi :thumbsup:

I started watching them again recently, I haven't watched them for a while, just long enough to forget some bits.
