VFVL - S2 - Game 7 - The End - Feb 18 to Mar 4

Postby The Evener » Sun Feb 19, 2017 8:56 am

Pour cette semaine, voici un jeu que j'ai JAMAIS vu dans les arcades - Un titre obscur qui était distribué par l'entreprise adoré pour le pinball, Stern :)

Mais pour ce défi, on utilise la version de Konami.

L'objectif est trés "simple" - défendre vos navires, et retarder les extraterrestres de prendre des blocs pour épeler "THE END."

SETTINGS
Konami ROM set
Lives: 3
All DIP switches: OFF

For this week, here is game that I NEVER saw in the arcades - an obscure title which was distributed by a company much-loved for pinball, Stern :)

But for this challenge we will use the Konami version.

The objective is very "simple" - defend your ships and slow the progress of the aliens frame taking blocks to spell "THE END"

Time for me to learn a new game...

Game on!

Okay this game is a bit weird but fun! Didn't stay alive very long - need to figure out how to anticipate the aliens' path a bit better.

Hmmmm - I didn't know that Konami had a version too!

Okay good to know on the first day!

I'm playing it on my 60-in-1 - as with the other games on this board, they removed any info that identified the maker/distributor of the game - so for those of us using this board we're stuck with whatever ROM is on here.

EDIT: given the differences outlined by Aza, I will confirm by screenshot what is found on the 60-in-1 and declare that version the ROM set for this cycle.

We can't really use both this time since Stern did modify the game quite a lot.

On Stern's version, your ship is above the shieldsand on the Konami, it is under !

Post a gameplay screenshot of what's on the 60-1 and we will know which version it is.

Thanks for the heads up! I will post a screen shortly.

Sorry for the confusion - I will look ahead at the other games during the season to avoid future ROM conflicts.

Sorry for those who started with Stern (myself included) but since we can't have both ROM sets due to significant differences we will use the Konami ROMs for this cycle. A number of VFVLers started with Konami so hopefully the majority of players won't have to change the ROMs.

It's almost the end for The End...

It's been a challenging week to get some time, but Saturday night, we blast off for the high score!

This game got the best of me. I ended up using my laptop for the game as I didn't have the same ROM version on my 60-in-1 (I think), so better safe than sorry, right?

In this case, I will submit my score of 8620, and I will also carefully re-arrange my computer set-up for the next round of game play to help get some higher scores.

Very true!

It's the end only for The End -- with the scores closed, the dust settled, the ranks for this cycle are:

HPR Pinball - 17000
Newfie - 15560
OTTOgd - 14400
choubidou - 13720
The Evener - 8620
Azatotht - 7640
redketchup - 6720
shovelhed - 4700

Some close action for first place, but HPR Pinball emerges with the high score for the game -- congrats!

This game definitely caused me some pain (and a computer repair bill -- :) ) - here's hoping for a less expensive competition with Dig Dug!
