Conan: 35,790

 

Not sure why I've never played this one much. It reminds me of The Goonies (for good reason - it has the same publisher and most of the same programmers/graphic designers) and I LOVED that one. Looking forward to getting a bit farther into this game.

Last time we played Conan with the Goonies !

Huge fan of all things Conan, but never knew about this game until I saw it mentioned over in the "recent posts."

 

Made it to level 4, but the game got stingy with the gems  😐

 

A BIG HSC welcome to Razzie.P :party:

:D

 

ok first tables coming up...

Actually I believe both RedThunder and Deteacher played the LK Avalon game, though they may not have posted any scores yet. If that game played at a slower speed, it would be a decent bonus game.

Barbarian (LK Avalon) - 1,600

 

Not a good score, but oh well.  I don't really get this game.  They start rolling into me and nothing seems to land properly.  I seem to remember playing it on something a few years ago and had more control.

 

Back to Conan.  I'm confident I can put together a great run on that one.

I can get to Level 7 without too much trouble, now, but I seem to get stuck on a spot just below the start.  It shows a plus sign and I can't move.  Every attempt to move is a jump.  Not sure what I'm missing there, but I think I can beat this one with no deaths if I can figure out this level (if this is the last level, that is)  Manual says there's an arrow that activates a catapult, so I'm guessing it's something to do with that, but not sure how to "not activate it"

I didn't realize there was another extra man on the first level.  So, I had to go and play it again.  New score:  333,900.  No deaths and grabbing the 2 extra lives.

Also rteached level 6 trying to get across the screen but got zapped. Really DK like on this one :) Having fun playing as can't remember the screens. 

Failed to get that extra man on the 1st level, will watch video again - there is a hidden vertical climb to the bottom branch! Perhaps some other tricks burried in the game :ponder:

 

76,000

Looiks like you only get the extra life if you have not killed the vulture - shooting the wall uncovers the secret passage/makes you fall into it, then when you go down it you get the life and the Bruce Lee extra life sound effect probably Conan was first! makes sense then you can get birdy on the 2nd pass.

 

Forgot there is another extra man from your Avian Ally - on the third level just jump into him. I tried to force my way through the trees to get to him on the 2nd level but this did not end well - sometimes you can get through the bottom of the left tree heading right to the spikes so I thought it was worth a try!!

 

Still trying to figure out the Big Orb screen, hopefully if I can keep a few lives safe I can suss it before tonight's deadline :)

80,580

 

We should have had a most daggers bonus - think I had 17 but I'm sure you can all do much better ;)

ok  will read the instuctions on atarmania - then another play then might have to crack and look at the spoiler above!

 

Interesting mentions bird extra life - also says 20k for each man remaing if you beat the game !

Despite playing for most of the day I failed to crush the thingy though I did get the ladder made and get up there; wish I'd thought of shooting and not jumping onto the chandelier in vain! DOH! (assuming you do shoot the cable)! Next time Conan, next time! Anyhoo it's for the win with Deteacher congratulations to Razzie.P trying hard in 2nd spot :thumbsup: Great game still and fun re-learning the screens, i'm partial to these apple games for some reason :)

 

Thanks for playing everyone :thumbsup:
