    Great score! I tried my hardest and when I got to score that I did. I think I did clear three times. That was really hard to do. it sucks that when you don't even take a shot that it counts as a missed shot too.

    Absolutely! We want High Score Squad to be accessible to as many people as possible. You can always play on SNES Classic πŸ‘ This was an issue we spent a lot of time discussing when we were developing what High Score Squad would be. Some of my friends, long-time Atari people, felt that it wouldn't be a level playing field to play on emulation or dedicated consoles and that we should only be playing on real hardware. I totally get where they're coming from, and if we were playing at a super serious level or for a world record, I would agree. We're only playing for fun though, and we want as many people to participate as can! So I see it as pick your "weapon of choice", if a player thinks there's some significant advantage to playing on emulation or a dedicated console, go for it. We all have that option and are free to choose what works best for us. Much like picking which air car works best for you in F-ZERO. The whole idea is to get people playing and rediscovering these old games. More and more that means on a dedicated console like NES Mini or Atari Flashback. We want High Score Squad to be a good reason to play and enjoy these games. The key here is that you are: Playing the original game ROM, not an altered or hacked version Not using cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, emulation enhancements,, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage Playing the correct release of the game. Atari 2600 Dig Dug is not Atari 7800 Dig Dug, etc. If you look at the top left of every Squad Challenge you will see we lay out what controllers, difficulty level etc. we are playing on. The sixth line almost always says: Play on: Real Hardware / Dedicated Console / MAME / Emulation OK! βœ” I think you'll do just fine here ☺️ If you have any questions feel free to ask, or check out this page with more detailed rules:

This time we're playing our first Super Nintendo Squad Challenge, a true SNES classic! F-ZERO is one of the iconic titles on Super Nintendo and was a good demonstration of the Super Nintendo's Mode 7 graphics. F-ZERO was a predecessor to anti-gravity racing league games such as Wipeout that would come in following generations. PDF F-ZERO Instruction Booklet is attached below. Good luck! Note: This is our first Super Nintendo Squad Challenge! F-ZERO.pdf

    I like all of the courses but Silence was my favorite. Mute City III was a challenging course for sure. I'd always get those dumb drivers, about to blow up, get in front of me.

    Faygo - Reviews & More

    Surprised I missed this thread all the times I've been here. I live in Michigan, and Faygo is a great drink. The shop at my college had a bunch of them when I was there too.

    You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐

    The worst was when you shot landed right on the edge on the side in-between two blocks😞

    I believe it would be acceptable. I used a NES Classic Mini in another score challenge not too long ago. Real hardware, dedicated consoles, MAME and emulation are OK.
