I love the theme for this round, and I really like three of these four in their own right. The odd one out for me here is Barnstorming. It looks great, but for reasons I can't quite put my finger on, the gameplay just doesn't quite do it for me. Of the other three, Sky Jinks on the other hand is a lot of fun, and is far better graphics wise than any 2k game has the right to be.

 

Fishing Derby is imho the most objectively impressive of the four. It looks good, the peril of having the shark adds a bit of excitement to the game, and there's a decent AI opponent. I imagine this one is a real blast as a 2 player game, and cramming all of this into a 2k cart is quite the acheivement imho. For me, this is the one on the four that makes it so obvious why Activision made such a splash when they launched.

 

But for entirely sentimental reasons, my favourite of the bunch is Freeway. One of my uncles who was the first in our extended family to get an Atari had this when I was 6 or 7, and he would bring the Atari itself over to my grandparents house when the extended family got together. This game invokes memories of large numbers of my extended family (including my late Grandad) all huddled round the TV screen as we took turns to to try and save as many chickens as possible fom becoming roadkill. More recently, the simplicity of this game made it the first video game my 6 year old daughter enjoyed playing a year or two ago, and we still play this together ocassionally. Because of all this, it makes me smile having this in HSC.

 

Anyway, thats enough of my (sentimental in the case of Freeway) nonsense, here are some scores 😀

So, I mentioned that my 6 yr old daugher enjoyed Freeway. Well, she decided that she wanted to join in with Daddy's game club and post a score. So, here's a surprisingly respectable score for Freeway for (probably) the youngest player in HSC, Izzywizzy (and apologies to Vocelli for posting scores for two players on one account . . . . .hopefully the confusion will be forgiven under the circumstances 😀)

First flight without crashes...

SKY JINKS Game 4: Speedway: Meadows: 2:23,84

IMG_20221105_212115_455.jpg

My problem is once I crash it becomes an infectious disease and I just keep on crashing. Meaning once the seal is broken my game is basically done.... :( 

 

And the last like 10 flags are dreadful for me.... Oh and I ALWAYS crash at the finish line into that damn hot air balloon...... 😡
