High Score Competition #228: Horizon
« on: October 09, 2017, 10:02:01 am »
I finally executed an idea that I'd been considering doing for some time, not only to lower my time investment when picking the next game, but to also let fate have a hand in picking the next game:
Pick the game above or below the last game!
It was this or Hopper Robo, which was cute and Apple ][ish but not adequately entertaining.


High Score Competition Rules and Scoreboard

-------------------
Game Name: Horizon (don't call me Moon Patrol 2!)
ROM Name:  horizon
-------------------

MAME DIP Settings (see my screen grab from 115u2):
 Lives: 3
 Bonus Life: 40k & every 80k
Compare against http://www.solvalou.com/subpage/arcade_dips/H/horizon. This document says 40k & 120k, which might be equivalent. Let me know what our other MAME revs show here.

Controls:
    4-way joystick (might technically be 8-way, but I did a lot better with 4-way), fire button

Moon patrol in 3 planes. Gyruss spaceship patterns. Space fun at its finest!



Last day: Sunday, October 22, 2017, midnight Pacific Time
--------------------------------------------------------------------



- Quest for the Bronze Joystick! The most successful competitor of each calendar year will possess & display the BYOAC Bronze Joystick Trophy. See this thread for details: The BYOAC Bronze Joystick.
Happy Gaming!

Opener: 82,500 after a few games. Man, this fun!
(Oh, if you don't get into the top 3 scores, you better take a picture right quick, because the score is no longer displayed after the GAME OVER screen, & the attract mode doesn't seem to ever show any but the top 3 scores!)

High Score Competition #160: Hopper Robo. One of my faves.

29,500

Interesting game. Too bad the music isn't as good as the original.

EDIT: 49,400




How far along we're you to be in the 80,000 range?
