1459 is the highest score of the session, earned by IDENIR, as shown on the screen. 0003 is the score for the last game (probably just the result of a boulder hitting his pick axe while sitting stationary at the start of a new game.

A score of 1 seems like an error to me.

@thedarkbanshee:

Thanks. It is indeed a good game. The pace is furious.

I haven't yet decided what is the best strategy:

  1. Kill the Master Nests as soon as possible, preventing deployment of the rest of the enemies.
  2. Let the Master Nests deploy all of the enemies then kill them before killing the Nest
  3. Let the Master Nest deploy all enemies and kill the Nest first, to turn all of the 30 point Green Widows into 50 point Stingers..

#3 seems like the highest potential scoring, assuming you can survive the same amount of waves. But that is a big "if".

So, the time for the gameplay shown in the video is 28.01, but the screen reads 27.99 at the start of the recording. So I guess 27.99 was the time earned in the game before the one played in the video?

You're missing out on alot of points on this level. If you can clear the space under that horizontal wall, I believe those boulders will fall through it and turn to diamonds. (It has been many years since I played it, but that's what I recall).

This was definitely one of my favorites on the C64. I've long thought that if Atari had Elite, I would have been very content with an Atari 800.

Boulder Dash, M.U.L.E., Elite, and the Infocom adventures would have been enough for me, and Atari BASIC is so accessible compared to the PEEK/POKEs required on the C64, that would have kept me pretty engaged also.

It is called the Playtech Pro Arcade Fighting Stick. At the time I bought it, it was the cheapest "fight stick" that had good reviews on Amazon.

The joystick is excellent. I believe it is microswitch-based. However, the buttons aren't good. I'm tempted to try to replace them.

It has PS2 and USB connections. I've only ever used the PS2 connections, but I've connected it to multiple consoles via adapters. (GameCube, TurboGrafx-16, and Atari-compatible.)

I've done much better on the MAME and Amiga versions of this great game (also known as Super Space Invaders 91). 

I'll be setting a goal to do much better on this one.

If you are a Space Invaders fan, Taito Legends 2 has multiple versions of this game. This title (Majestic 12), Space Invaders DX (which has the classic, versus, and parody modes), and Space Invaders 95.

Hey Darrin,

"Donkey Kong VCS" is a recent homebrew version. You can read about it here.

It appears that you have submitted the same score as emulated and non-emulated.

Assuming you played this under DOSBox or another emulator, I recommend removing this entry from the "PC" category and let voting continue in the "PC Emulated / DOSBox" category.

Video captured from a real PS2 console using a Roxio Game Cap and 3 web cams, via XSplit. (No editing required.) You'll see XSplit on the monitor until I toggle the input over to Component input (for the PS2).

I accidentally switched first to coax input, first, which is connected to my TurboGrafx-16, then switched to the correct input before gameplay began..

For this many video inputs, you'll need a USB card, as the PC's USB 2.0 bus doesn't have enough bandwidth for too many video inputs. I'm using the USB card for the Roxio Game Cap, and the PC's built-in USB ports for the web cams. 

The web cams are set at a low resolution (320x200) with all auto-enhance and auto-focus features turned off for performance reasons. Auto-focus is more like auto-unfocus, anyway.

Cool.

We have one of these in Austin at Pinballz Arcade.. Or at least it was there a few months ago.. I haven't been in a while. I did a video of it a few months ago, but the game locked up on me.. This one looks to be in nicer condition..

I'd like to see a Caveman (another pin/arcade hybrid).. I haven't seen one of those since the 80s..

It looks like the score wraps when the bonuses are totalled at the end.

However, the concerns jondsd pointed out are good ones. This video is posted on a Youtube channel called pinball.de, and the submitter is from Alabama.

This is a great video, but due to the issue above, I'm voting no.

I identify myself in the video by holding my smart phone up to one of the cameras with my avatar displayed. (I should have put a name tag on the monitor for the photo. Since I took the photo with my phone, I could not hold it up for identification here. Next time, I'll have a name tag.)

An explanation about my setup here:

  • I'm using an actual TurboGrafx-16 console with a TurboEverdrive card. 
  • I'm sharing a TV/Monitor between my PC and the game console. Video is being captured on the PC in the opening shot using XSplit and a WinTV device. After the recording has started, I switch the video source on the TV/Monitor to "Air", which has the RF signal from the console coming in on Channel 3.
  • I'm using a PS2-compatible arcade stick with the TG16 via a TotoTek adapter. This device allows the use of PS2 controllers with the TurboGrafx-16 console. I'll be using this arcade stick with a variety of consoles via various controller adapters. (I have PS2 adapters for Atari/Commodore systems, GameCube, and original Xbox).

Hey Kenzy,

I think this might be submitted under the wrong title. 

Phoenix Lair is appears to me to be a platformer game, based on this info in the Atarimania database.

This screenshot appears to be the game Phoenix I, which you have a score submitted on already. (The video for that one looks the same as this screenshot.)

If this isn't a mistake, can you help clarify if this is the right game?

Played at Flipperspiel Wunderland in Las Vegas (still around, but apparently not open to the public).

This was a somewhat unplanned visit. Gene X of Pinball Soul picked me up after a party and drove me down there. I didn't have anything handy to identify myself with in the photo, so I took a selfie in front of the machine.

This place used to have a Sinistar cockpit, but no longer, which was disappointing, but after hearing this place was closed, I was very happy to find that it wasn't exactly true.

Adam, the owner, showed me a cool trick I'd never seen on Space Invaders Deluxe. 

This is a great little arcade. If you are ever in Las Vegas, let me know if you want to find this place.

Yes, indeed. The controllers were the failing point for this system on too many games.

Atari was so afraid of Intellivision that they designed an Intellivision-killer, and tried to improve on the Intellivision's analog controllers. They were so focused on the Intellivision that they lost sight of things that made their first programmable console so successful. 

That being said, the analog stick works extremely well for a few games, most notably Star Wars: The Arcade Game and Super Breakout.

Also, the 5200's track ball controller with Centipede is an awesome thing.

It is an impressive system! Seeing videos of TI99 games from other High Score members made me want one badly. 

The arcade conversions by Parker Bros look especially awesome (Frogger, for example!). And the quality of speech synthesis on Star Trek is impressive.

I managed to pick up a new-in-box Wico converter (some on eBay right now) so I can use my arsenal of Atari-compatible controllers with the TI99. 

I'm looking forward to logging some hours playing Atarisoft, Sega, and Parker Bros arcade conversions on this system with my Battlestation II and CMS Super-8 controllers.

I've done it in 54.45 seconds on my Nintendo DS, but I don't have adequate evidence to back up that claim, so I haven't submitted it.

I suspect it may be possible to get a much shorter time with use of the bridge, but I haven't really studied that possibility, yet. The downside of that approach would be the round-trip needed to bring the bridge to where you want to place it, so placing it at the bottom of the blue maze for a faster exit probably isn't worth it. I'm thinking that there may be another shortcut closer to the bridge's starting point.

The Blaze Kit is an add-on for Midway Space Invaders or Space Invaders Deluxe machines that adds the ROMs for 8 games compatible with Midway's Space Invaders hardware. This only works in these two specific Midway arcade machines. All of the original hardware on the arcade board is still used to run the game once this add-on is installed.

I don't think that everyone who votes against a submission is saying that they believe the submitter cheated. Rather, I think the intention is often to say that they feel that they need stronger evidence for someone to win their vote.

Keep in mind that there are some users who apply the same level of scrutiny to low scores that they do to incredibly high scores. For example, one person voted against my first Galaga 88 score on an arcade machine because they wanted to see a video (they didn't feel my photos of my initials on the high score list were sufficient evidence to earn their 'Yes' vote, and I respect that). 

I do hope that you continue to participate. I definitely value and appreciate your submissions.

I'm using Google Glass. My two Resogun videos were also recorded with Glass.

I used to use a camera called a Looxcie that you wear in your ear like a bluetooth headset, which I bought for use in arcades. It works great for Pinball, but it is too light-sensitive for video games.

I'm not actually outputting from my PC to the TV. I'm splitting the output from the C64 to both the TV and the PC's WinTV capture device simultaneously.

Here's the details of how I'm currently doing it:

  1. I connect the A/V out (using a standard monitor cable) from the C64 to an RCA switchbox.
  2. I connect an RCA Y-adapter to the video output of the switchbox, and another RCA Y-adapter to the audio output.
  3. I connect a cable to one end of the Y-adapter on the video out, and connect that to the TV. I do the same for the Y-adapter connected to the audio out.
  4. I connect cables on the free ends of the two Y-adapters to the A/V inputs on the WinTV capture device. 
  5. I use XSplit to record the direct input from the WinTV and the web cam pointed at my computer and TV simultaneously. (No editing needed)

This setup allows me to play my game on my big CRT television while the signal is simultaneously routed to the capture device on my PC. 

I'm using a similar setup for recording the output from consoles that only provide RF out. The WinTV has a coax input as well, and I use and RCA-to-coax adapter to get the RF signal into the WinTV's coax port. This is how I did my recent Blazing Lazers (TurboGrafx -16) video. However, when splitting the RF output from my 2600 to two destinations, the video quality ended up being poor. (No problem for the TG16, though.)

My username "Serious" appears on the screen at the beginning and end of the race. My final time appears at 3:05 in the video.

It has been a very long time since I have played this game, but the force feedback on this machine seemed much more intense than typical; probably because most of the foam rubber was pulled off the steering wheel.

This machine, and the Galaga 88 machine I play in another video, are located at "Cafe 1626" in Manchaca, TX.

My first real attempt on this game.

I've set a goal to beat dj5kjlara's score of 1.6 million.. I've got a ways to go!

Some info on how I recorded this:

  • This is recorded on a real TG16 console.
  • Using a WinTV HVR-950 TV Tuner device to capture the video coming from my TG16 console.
  • I'm using a coax cable (via RCA adapter) to route the RF signal from the console into the coax jack of the TV Tuner device.
  • Also using a web cam to show the TV monitor. The web cam is better than it should be, as it is HD and autofocus, but since it is scaled down, a VGA cam would be better (as it would use less bandwidth on the USB bus), and the autofocus makes it go blurry occasionally.
  • XSplit used to capture video from both sources live. XSplit automatically recognizes the WinTV HVR-950. I had to set the configuration on the device (via XSplit) to use Channel 3.

The Sears Super Video Arcade also has detachable controllers, and it is compatible with the Coleco games (unlike the Intellivision 2).

However, a good alternative controller is hard to come by. The Wico sticks look decent, but they don't come cheap.

grips03 on AtariAge converted some Neo Geo X arcade sticks, which is what I use, but it was apparently quite a project, and they didn't come cheap. I think he might be doing a similar project in the future.

Yes, the "lightspeed starship", as it is called in the manual, is deadly. Surviving those attacks is the key to the game.

Your shields have to recharge for a couple of seconds after taking a hit. There's a noise you'll hear while they're recharging, and a slight change in color once they are fully charged.

I have never played it on this unit, but I really like the game.

When this game was new, I spotted it at a convenience store, and was able to play it about 3 times. (We had no shortage of arcade machines in every little convenience store when I was a kid, but we did have a shortage of quarters.) I might have seen the arcade version one or two other places, but it was pretty uncommon.

I've mostly played it on the PSX Namco collection..

There's also a sequel on C64 called Bosconian '87, but I've yet to try that one. My understanding is that it is very difficult.

@S.BAZ:

Shield management is a big part of survival in this game. It is difficult to make an accurate shot with the lasers, and it often leaves you vulnerable without having eliminated your target. Ramming solves that problem.

There are two strategies I have applied to this game: 

In the video above, I'm using a conservative, defense approach to maximize my survival time. I leave most of the drifting 1 point enemies on the screen to create as many obstacles between me and the shots from the lightspeed starship (the attack saucer) as possible, and I save my shield for ramming the hunter-seekers (which are eventually going to hit me, anyway, one way or another). 

When I was a kid, my strategy was to go for as many combo hits as possible (regardless of whether my targets were the 1 point or 3 point enemies). This more aggressive approach got me some pretty good scores, but it required lots of attempts to get a good score. I was striving to achieve a score good enough to mail in to Electronic Games magazine (which tracked UFO on their scoreboard), but never got close.

If you have an old PC sitting around, a 1541XE cable and the 64hdd program may be a cheaper way to do it, but it is clunkier in comparison to the sd2iec drive. (I use both, but prefer the sd2iec.)

You can find out more about this option here: http://www.64hdd.com/64hdd.html

The 1541XE cable will also allow you to create D64s out of any old C64 disks you have, using a 1541 drive and a DOS program called Star Commander. Again, it needs to be an older PC to work. (My Pentium III-450mhz works with this cable.)

You can actually extract D64s to a 1541 disk, or load them onto a C64 via various types of hardware (like a 1541XE cable, or an SD card device for the C64).

You may be interested in checking this out:

http://www.sd2iec.co.uk/id14.html

This connects to the C64 serial port, and draws power from the cassette port. You can put D64s on the SD card and load them using Commodore DOS commands. I have one, and it works great.

I don't know another game to compare it with. You have to run away from spinning sticks that are bouncing around an open playfield, picking up coins that appear at random.

This is one of the most addictive games I have ever played.

I've played almost every version of this game, and I think the Odyssey 2 version is the hardest.

I'm playing the same copy of this game I've owned since I was about 12 years old (cartridge, box, and manual all still intact). I think I used to be better at it than I am now, but I'm going to work on improving my score.

This is the version I played the most as a kid. Maybe I should give it another go sometime soon..!

I was looking recently to see if Gorf is available on any of those arcade collections for newer consoles, and it doesn't seem to be! I'm guessing this is due to licensing issues with Galaxian.

AtariAge member PacManPlus was working on a port for the Atari 7800 (and his versions are almost arcade perfect). I'm hoping that does become available.

You can catch a glimpse of it in the video (on the floor) in the first couple of seconds of the video.

You can buy the foot pedal controller, new in the box, here for $20USD (which seems like a bargain to me): http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Foot-Pedal-Controller-for-Atari-2600-7800-Commodore-/130531585922?pt=US_Video_Game_Controllers&hash=item1e6449ef82

There are switches that allow you to specify what each pedal does (any one of 4 joystick directions or the fire button). You can daisy-chain it with your joystick in the same port (though I've never found a reason to do that), or you can add it to the second port. 

It seems very high quality to me. It is microswitch-based and seems pretty durable.

I've found it most useful when playing Stargate on the 2600. The second controller is used for activating smart bombs, hyperspace, and invisibility, and the 3 programmable pedals are ideally suited for that. I wouldn't want to use it for any kind of directional control, like steering, though.

I eventually plan to build a custom controller for Stargate and Spy Hunter (I have a Generation NEX arcade stick that I gutted for this purpose), but this is suitable in the meanwhile.

You have to keep flying to the right. The game doesn't make this apparent, but the primary goal of the first stage is to cover a certain amount of distance before your fuel runs out. You get a bonus based on the amount of fuel remaining, so for optimal play of this stage, it seems like you need to get the right balance of fireballs destroyed, Skeletor captures, and speed of reaching your destination.

Not having the controller holder anymore may be a factor (one of those things that got tossed out that I regret). I'm using a foot pedal controller to controll the extra weapons instead.

I think they did that because the standard 5200 joystick doesn't center itself, so you could end up accidentally jumping all over the place.

@Sixx:

It is an interesting option. You can turn more quickly, which can be an advantage. It is also fun to manuever.

However, you can't thrust and fire at the same time, and given that the paddle doesn't offer continous rotation, you often have to rotate the opposite direction when you've reached the end of the paddle's turning radius (which isn't that bad, since you can rotate so quickly).

I might do better with a Starplex controller. I'll have to give it a try.

My final score appears at 8:10 (at which point, Xacalite calls me a weakling).

I got interested in this game after seeing cncfreak's submissions on DOSBox and Apple IIgs. I purchased a Roland MT-32 sound device so I could play this game as Sierra intended.

The game is being played on a Pentium III-450 running Windows 95 in DOS mode.

After my death at 8:10, I let the closing credits run, followed by the game's title sequence and intro (which are awesome, if you've never seen/heard them), then I reboot the PC back into Win 95 mode.

This is my first real attempt at this game, so my score is very modest. This is a game I hope to invest some time in and will be looking to improve my score significantly.

It is definitely similar, and Robotron is one of my favorite games. 

I haven't fully learned the game, yet. Sectors of the city are destroyed when a "Flash Point" is left without intervention for too long. I am guessing that the game ends once every sector of the city is reduced to rubble (assuming you survice that long).

I'd like to read a manual for this (if one exists), so I can better understand the scoring. This is probably the game I will be playing most often on my Philips G7400.

As you can see towards the beginning of the video, I have rigged up a dual-controller holder. The unreleased Magnavox Odyssey 3 (which this game was designed for) would have had a place to dock the joysticks, which is how this game was designed to be played, but none of the Videopac or Odyssey 2 console variants have a joystick holder.. My make-shift dual joystick holder works pretty well, but the controllers aren't firmly held into place (which screwed me up in a few places). I'm thinking that something like a large elastic band might solve that.

The lighting in the video came out kinda weird, and the screen wasn't as crisp as usual when recording with my Google Glass. (My recent Resogun video was also recorded on Glass, and you can see the difference in that case. Resogun came out incredibly sharp.) Next time I play this, I'll probably play with the overhead lights off, to see if that makes a difference.

Older version has been retitled to [Skill 1].

I agree with DakotaKid. The VIC-20 version is one of the best adaptations of this game I've ever seen. I need to try to submit my own score for it in the near future.

The one I'd most love to play is VectorTanks for iOS, which was removed from the AppStore before I became aware of it.

I remember seeing this game being played in stores when the Colecovision was new and it impressed the heck out of me.

I ended up getting the 2600 version, which was surprisingly great, in comparison to my earlier disappointments with Coleco's Atari releases (Donkey Kong, specifically).

I love them all, now. smiley

This does indeed look like a great game.

I am hoping that once I am able to find an IBM PCjr at the right price, that I will be able to play the PC version of this game on it. My understanding is that the version created for the Tandy 1000 and PC takes good advantage of the Tandy/PCjr sound capabilities.

I have to say that the Apple IIgs version looks like a superior version of the game, though.

In most cases, Oyama is correct. smiley 

However, we have seen a few instances where difficulty switch settings weren't mentioned in the manual, but they did have an effect on the game. The difference was only found by looking in the disassembled code for the game, or by looking at the difference in scoring.

For Millipede, I cannot say for sure one way or another. If we are able to determine for certain that difficulty switch settings do not matter, the categories for Game 1A and Game 1B will be merged in the future (and trophies adjusted accordingly).

This has been recategorized as Atari's Greatest Hits for iOS.

To date, commercially released game collections have been classified separately from emulation. I am recategorizing this submission in keeping with that practice.

Atari's Greatest Hits for iOS wasn't in the database, but I have just added some of the games for it. Most of the games for iOS Activision Anthology are now added as well (and submissions on that have been similarly recategorized).

I think that when these things were new, there was often disappointment that it wasn't the same as what it was trying to mimic (whether that be an arcade game or something else). I don't think we have the same expectation any longer, and it is easier to appreciate these games on their own merit.

One of the things I'm finding for myself, though, is that games that are played competitively are more interesting than the game might have been if played just for fun.

We've been talking about adding INP files in the Highscore.com thread on AtariAge. 

One question that has come up is how one can tell that the INP file was actually recorded by the player. (Someone expressed a concern that someone can go and download someone else's INP file somewhere and submit it as their own.)

I think I will add support for uploading of INP files in the near future, but to also require some other type of evidence (photo or video) to help authenticate that the person providing the INP is indeed the person who recorded it.

One of the things that seems to be a key part of this game is what is the right time to cool the lasers. I've been cooling them during the asteroid field, but watching this video, I notice that all objects seem to have the same point value, so maybe that is exactly the wrong time to be cooling the lasers, since there are so many objects that could be shot in that stage?

Based on the rules defined for this category on this site, this score should go into the emulated category, as this is not being loaded from a SNES or Super Famicom cartridge into a SNES or Super Famicom console. For example: Atari Flashback is official Atari hardware, but it contains none of the original components of the Atari 2600, and games are not loaded from Atari cartridges, so it is considered emulation.

That comment is old (from August 2013), before Inlearned this game didn't use the difficulty switches. This score was the first I submitted to the site when I launched it. It wasn't showing up earlier in the voting due to a bug that I fixed today. This score (1) was the only score affected by that bug.

I have tried to implement something like the tunnel strategy before after reading about it in Joystick magazine when I was a kid, but I was trying to do it by forcing out fleas. I learned a lot from watching your video, and look forward to trying out your techniques. I will probably never come close to how good you are, but will hopefully be able to at least log some half-way respectables scores.

Maybe this is a problem unique to me, but it happens to me no matter which browser I try.

I have mostly played this game using the simulated table in Pinball Arcade for iOS. The ball's movement on this table is quite different. For example, the flipper pass I keep making from the left to the right isn't possible in Pinball Arcade.

I tried something new: using my phone to display my username (on my High Score profile page), but it didn't show up very well in the video. However, you can see my avatar and the "High Score" logo. Also, I enter my initials on the machine at 5:11 in the video.

I really love the arcade version. The game produces some of the best sounds of any arcade game ever made. Many Williams pinball machines from that era also use the same sounds, but anything Williams is awesome.

I had a similar experience playing Star Trek pinball this weekend. By the time I got my iPod out to take a photo, the score was gone and it was giving the credits of everyone who was involved in the creation of the game, and all the scores of 5 people who are way better than me. Luckily, I was shooting video, so I was able to capture it that way.

Some suggestions that I hope will help: Videos without audio seem to get less positive votes. A video that contains your initials, name, or something else that helps identify you will also help you get votes. Also, the strange colors may create suspicion that frying was used, which is not allowed per the rules for this category. I hope that helps!
