+therealbountybob Posted March 1 Share Posted March 1 MOON PATROL REDUX Moon Patrol but not as we know it! checkout the Moon Patrol Redux thread here on atariage https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=7762 PLAY FROM THE START EACH TIME ON BEGINNER, IT SHOULD LEVEL UP AUTOMATICALLY LIKE THE ORIGINAL TOP PLAYERS - NO PRACTISING ON THE HARDER SKILL LEVEL OR USING CONTINUES PLEASE Emulator users: from the menu screen options set overscan to Normal it will not have the borders (then you don't see the stuff you're not meant to see) Review: Checkout my review of Moon Patrol vs Moon Patrol Redux in Issue 15 of Pro(c) Atari Magazine https://forums.atariage.com/topic/317849-pro-c-atari-issue-15-available/#comment-4767453 Comments and hints from last time we played... trbb: Moon Patrol is the perfect HSC game, not too hard and enjoyable all round. Players may be surprised to know it's the most played HSC game in world history The only thing that would be great to see added (I'm assuming it's not been) is another skill level combining more of the features or just some other levels McKong: The 3rd time through seems more difficult than the 2nd, but the 4th seems the same as the 3rd Carlsson: Minor improvement. I still don't get past the tanks at U, but I learned to drive faster and thus collect more bonus at the end of the previous levels. Starbug: I don't know if you've tried this, but I had to slow right own to a crawl initially to get past the tanks, but after a few times I got more comfortable and just fly through them now. Also, another thing I do, if you want this tip (stop reading if you don't): You don't need to shoot the tanks. I found it easier to shoot their bullets and jump over the tanks, though if you're trying the slow down method, you could just shoot everything, until you get used to it trbb: Slow down for the tank, shoot a single shot as you approach, it hit's their bullet, then wait a tad and fire again, if you fire too fast firing again you shoot up, either way if you get near them jump over them speeding up again as you do, then repeat. TANKS VERY MUCH I was wondering how come my scores were low vs Starbug who got to about the same place, then I remembered it's 100pts for jumping the rocks vs 50pts for shooting them, so that's going to land me in another bunch of craters! Enjoying playing this great game, it's just got that perfect get the eye to look up no look across arrggh I told you to look up why didn't you listen appeal RedThunder: Round ends Weds 15th March 8pm UK time All welcome to play - Have Fun! Bonus Games conscious that Moon Patrol may be a bit easy and you'll not want a zillion goes on it here is a bonus game we played it once before: Tyrants of Torment was an Atari User Mag type in, think fandal's made it into an XEX, not sure if it plays the same speed etc. https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=3183 Full Moon Fever For an additional bonus play any games with moon in the title - not the original Moon Patrol for a bonus point each say 3 max per person. https://a8.fandal.cz/search.php?search=moon&butt_details_x= Moon Quest is a nice graphic adventure from last year's abbuc game Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
