BATTLE #44 Game: Bomb Jack Platform(s): Arcade Challenge Type: High Score Game Details: Full Game When: Jan 15th - Feb 14th, 2021 Chosen By: retroman
I’ve updated the website with the new game, man the periscopes!
Good luck everyone, please submit your scores via screenshot or video by replying directly to this post!
Competitions last two weeks, close on Sunday night @ midnight.
Post screenshots in this thread as proof.
The winner from the previous week chooses the next game to play.
You cannot choose twice in a row. 2nd place will choose if someone wins two weeks in a row.
If there’s a tie, the person that submitted the high score first gets to choose.
Games must be high score compatible (think “arcade style scores” like Pac-Man, or Spy Hunter, not Super Mario).
Emulation is okay (MAME is often the best for high scores).
No save state manipulation (pausing to take a break is fine though).
Submit scores as soon as you get them! To keep the competition rolling and fair, do not hold on until the last moment to submit.
Points will be awarded for the entrants, based on the position finished for the week. This is to encourage wider participation, and the points will be posted each week as well as on the website.
Any honest attempt:
Overall, we should keep it simple. This is just a good time, not a crazy official high score competition! Game plays should ideally be short and fun so people that can’t invest hours into this can still compete. Obviously we are working on a trust based system here, so don’t ruin it for the others!
Cool, I see you are using a 16:9 monitor. That’s what I was using a first but was lucky to find the HP 4:3 equivalent of full HD monitor. It looks pin sharp with the vertical scanlines.
Love your stick too. Very cool.
My stick is a home made project. For the base I’m using a TR Fight stick. Really solid metal base with a heafty weight to it.
Yeah, having flexibility on a stick is great. There a toggle switch on mine which allows it to work on PS3 and PS4 although I’ve never tried that option. I really should do as I’ve a few good 2D games on the PS4.
