Looks like Cavit does the same thing.   I have not test Aerial yet but would guess all will be the same from the same author

On the board with Centipede:  44,191

 

I definitely never had this version growing up, so it's cool to add it to the collection!  I think I mostly played the 1981 version and of course the 5200 hack back then.

EDIT:  I definitely played the 1982 version, which I downloaded from the first post, but i saw TRBB mention the 1981 in a later post.  Was that second mention a typo?  It is the 1982 version we should be playing, right?  On NTSC everything looks mostly white until you start the game?

So you all continue with the recent level? I just rebooted for every try to start with level 1...

I did once, but I didn't play it again. I haven't confirmed if all the Inufuto games work like this, and if it a bug in his A8 generating code or if the other 40 formats behave the same way. I hardly think it is a shortcoming of the Atari that it can't reset the level between games.

I couldn't get Dungeoneer to run on my stock 130XE - anyone else having this issue? It loads for about 30 seconds and then freezes... I'll try emulation for this one.

 

EDIT: Got 280 on Dungeoneer - score disappeared before I could get a screenshot.

Ok, my turn to have a go at the 2022 games.  I did try to play Pac-Time but it would only just start a game and then reset.  Could be because MyIDE II doesn't like running ATRs off the fatloader, but I didn't have any more time to play around with things to get it to work so I bailed.

 

Impetus I just quit as it was so slow and so easy.  I must have had like 10 men LOL.  It really sucked that Cacorm started flickering after the 4th level as I think I might have liked that the most of the Inufuto games.  I thought Aerial was also too easy but since that was the first I played it much longer. 

 

Dungeoneer is my fave by far of this group though.  I played it through once as I had to see what happened when I finished that last level (which of course is nothing much except the spider gets faster and you start over).  The game is just so charming IMO.  I think it would make a fun bonus game: maybe see how many times you can get through the loop?

 

Aerial: 43800
Battlot: 15910
Bootskell: 2320
Cacorm: 11950
Cavit: 12710
Dungeoneer: 565
Impetus: 5640
Lift: 2660

Just noticed that the HSC record for centipede is 100k which Deteacher and myself beat.  I would have thought the record would have been much higher than that

I think that's down to not playing this version very often ;) but we'll done both of you it's a challenging game!
