HSC20 Round 6: Millipede and Season Catch-Up for rounds 1-5

Recommended Posts


One of the best games ever, great fun. Play the 1984 Version with title screen animations, supports Trak-Ball too :love: so we'll have a separate bonus table for Trak-Ballers if we get a few posts ;)


fandal's XEX is PAL fixed (also works on NTSC)

atarimania has all the info



As we have a few former HSCers joining in we may as well have a season catch-up for anyone who missed any of the first 5 rounds so post scores here please for some bonus points :)



Round ends Weds the something like the 12th of April 8pm UK time :ponder:

Have fun, all welcome to play ;)

@therealbountybob any particular rules regarding starting score and continues (e.g. start at 0 and no continues)


Fun game!

Yes Start at 0 and no continues :D

p.s. it's only Joystick Mode for Trak-Ball but it plays nicely either way ;)

I wonder if you're playing the same 1984 version as the rest of us, given that the starting score is left justified and the line below about press fire is slightly different.

Oh! You're right - thanks for letting me know. Here's a new score on the 1984 version.


Millipede: 228,718

Millipede (joystick start at 0): 285,281

Millipede (trackball start at 0): 218,022


Trackball controls really well even though not true trackball mode.  Probably can do better than joystick if had started first with it.

Emulator question: Is there any requirement to play on NTSC or PAL video mode?  I noticed that the emulator plays the games significantly faster on NTSC mode (especially Millipede).  I live in the U.S. if that matters.


Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but I'm a little new at this.  Thanks!
