    1142. Oh for the love of God, no one beat this score -- I don't think I could do any better. RE: The variations. This particular game I would never go beyond the "easy" levels because even "easy" was too hard to me.

OBJECTIVE: Play for the highest possible score using the difficulty settings defined in the challenge. Post a photo or video of your score in this thread.

MORE: To review detailed rules on how to play, please visit the High Score Squad page here: https://forums.atari.io/topic/1219-high-score-squad-how-to-play/ MESSAGE: Welcome to our 59th Squad Challenge! THIS SQUAD CHALLENGE IS TODAY ONLY! We're celebrating STAR WARS DAY MAY THE FOURTH by playing Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back from Parker Brothers on the Atari 2600! Empire is a fairly straight forward game with Defender-like wrap-around side scrolling gameplay with a radar screen to show you your position within the game. The object of the game is to destroy as many of the Imperial Walkers as you can before they reach the power generator at the end of the battlefield -- or before the Imperial Walkers destroy your fleet of Snowspeeders. The ROM and Instructions are provided below. May The Force Be With You! Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back.BIN Star Wars The Empire Strikes Back.pdf

    I agree. Keeping things simple is best. I always thought E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial should've been Elliot and E.T. flying through the air on his bike collecting Reese's Pieces like Flappy Bird

    This has got to be one of the best movie-based games on any classic system. It's a simple game, yet it perfectly captures the feel of that first Hoth battle at the beginning of TESB. A good lesson on keeping it simple. A lot of other movie adaptation games are too ambitious, or the gameplay doesn't seem to have anything to do with the movie.

    The Truth Behind Gremlins 2

    Fun Fact: For a long time, I thought Al Lewis reprised his Munsters role for the movie, like he kinda did (but he's Grampa in the game...not Grandpa...totally & legally different) for Midnight Mutants. Little did I know, it was someone else, who's playing a character inspired by Grandpa Munster.

    That's a better idea than a maze game where you are trying to guide a drunk ET through a house, while at the same time guiding Elliot through a classroom avoiding frogs. (When Spielberg asked for a maze game, this must've been what he had in mind) Sorry Rick.😔 I had several games in the 600-800 range, but then I was finally able to destroy the first wave, which gave me some breathing room (in most games an AT-AT reaches the end before I lose my lives. They move pretty fast in this variation). 1664

    Oh man, you almost cracked 1,000 points! It's funny you say you always just put the cartridge in and play and never really did any game variations. I was always the same way. That's one of the reasons we change up the game variations in High Score Squad, the idea being that you can come at an old game from a new perspective and discover new ways to enjoy old games that may be played out. Ultimate Yars' is probably the best example of this! Ultimate Yars is INSANE and I never played that until last year.

    I might still have some ticket sheets somewhere. I used to print off tickets for Atari games just for fun (circa 2000). I've moved so many times since then and lost so much stuff It's hard to think about. I'll try to find one for you!
