HSC20 New Season (2023) Welcome and Games Suggestion List

 

OK Here we go folks, let's say 10 games each to start with so pick wisely Atarian's. We can have some extra suggestions later in the season and for any special rounds such as new games or 2600 ports etc.

 

If you want to know anything just ask but each round is 2 weeks from a Monday Wednesday and you just play the game or games and post your scores (screenshots optional) while having some fun on the Atari 8-bit :love:

 

The first poll will start very soon

 

Hope to see you all play :)

I'll probably modify this list as I think of better ideas, but here are some to start with:

  • Round About
  • Chicken
  • Planetary Defense (works with joystick or Koala Pad - bonus for using the pad?)
  • Journey to the Planets
  • Firefleet (we may have played this one recently- I can't remember for sure)
  • Salmon Run
  • Gateway to Apshai
  • Fast Eddie
  • Maxwell Manor OR Mission on Thunderhead (Do these give the player a score? I think it's possible to choose the seed for the starting layout so we could all play the same one)

Limiting this to 10 is a problem! Luckily MichaG has a few I wanted to play so here's my first go:

Zone X

Bristles

Dawn Raider

Tutankhamun

HiJack!

GridRunner

Bounty Bob Strikes Back!

Qix

Blue Max 2001

Necromancer

 

Most of my picks are on the tricky side, now there's a surprise ;)

In random order:

2. Defender

3. Bank Bang!

4. Batty Builders (maybe in multigame-round)

5. Tanks

6. Grand Prix Simulator

7. Gremlins

8. Parachute 2011 (maybe with Octopus together)

9. Pole Position or Pit Stop

10. Desmond's dungeon

And many, many more...

It might be wrong but I had to include a 2600 port in my list of 10 anyway (Frostbite), as I just love that game!  It's one I missed when it was first released on the VCS but discovered in university by watching a roommate play it.  Such a great little game and good HSC fodder IMO (could be paired with other winter themed games). 

 

My list, in alpha order:

 

Boulder Dash
Cosmic Tunnels
Fort Apocalypse
Frostbite
Jumpman/Jr.
Kennedy Approach

Lode Runner

Quasimodo
Yoomp!
Zenji

There's an 8-bit port of Frostbite? That was a game I loved BITD. Think I still have my original copy from '83.

There is!  I don't have the list handy but there was a run on 2600 ports last year, with Frostbite being one of them.

 

I'm sure the xex is in Fandals site though.
