    Congratulations RickR! Congratulations @RickR on your ULTIMATE score! I want to thank EVERYBODY for participating in our little event this year, and for celebrating the life and works of Howard Scott Warshaw who went for so many years without recognition, carrying "the blame" for the video game crash. I hope doing HSWDAY once a year is a fun way to break out these old games and appreciate them for what they are. I hope everyone had a good time playing Ultimate Yars!. Congrats to @RickR @greenween @atarilbc @TrekMD @kamakazi20012 and @Atari Creep for being among the most elite Yars' Revenge players! I'd like to encourage RickR to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for the TurboGrafx-16!

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 66th Squad Challenge! This time we're playing Ninja Spirit for the TurboGrafx-16! Ninja Spirit was released as a HuCard (TurboChip) for the TurboGrafx systems, and was included as a pack-in title with most TurboDuo game systems sold in the US! I think you'll find that Ninja Spirit is one of the stand-out titles among the US releases for TurboGrafx. It's a fun game with powerful jumps, different power ups and some serious ninja strategy. This has become my go-to game when I'm craving a ninja game. I should also apologize to you guys for posting this Squad Challenge five days late. I always try to post these on time. I have been absolutely swamped with work and have been distracted from the site and from playing games for the past few weeks. I'm here though, and this is going to be a great game for those of you just discovering the TurboGrafx-16. This is a SINGLE LIFE RUN Challenge, and you are only allowed ONE LIFE to achieve your high score in this Squad Challenge. ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for Atari 7800. Be there! Ninja Spirit.pdfNinja Spirit.pce

    What? No, man. I think you're computer is fine. It looks like a nice balance of gaming performance. Moore's Law died several years ago. The only reason I upgraded is that my old PC was overheating, and nothing I tried could fix it. New thermal paste, new heatsink/fan. I upgraded very reluctantly. I kept my old video card because I have no problems running the games I play with it. Saved a few bucks that way.

    Oh wow, I got 2'nd place \o/ I stopped by a TV place on way home, said $30.oo deposit to check it out & will be placed towards the repair cost if done. I lost both picture & sound at the same time so thinking power circuit I didn't unplug-replug but did let it cool down for a night. upon trying again a loud pop inside, sounded like a capacitor popped I think it'd be worth having it professionally looked at

    Thank you @atarilbc! I love that you picked up on that. I think a lot of us grew up playing the default game variations. Mixing up the game variations and looking for the most challenging mix is a fun way to change things up and find new ways to enjoy these common titles. It's definitely been a fun approach to High Score Squad.

    I genuinely tried to get back on this one, got too busy. Going to still try to best my score until I can reach 6 dig score. Its fun for sure.

    This is my strategy for the whole game. Shoot em mid air only. The score racks up pretty quickly. But it gets really hard when that stupid dash starts flying around at full speed.

    This game's brutal, y'all. I had no luck getting a better score...yet. Will try again later.

    109,885. Just a slight improvement in score. This variation is pretty fun. I wasn't great about selecting through the different options when I was a kid. Often, I'd just opt for the default unless there were obvious changes like Air Sea Battle, Combat or Space Invaders. As a grown-up it's been fun to click through and play a lot of these game variations. Some game options bring real variety to the proceedings and make these old games seem fresh.

    Sorry for the delay. I'll have pictures up soon. I'll be honest...I could keep every single item in this box. It's that good this time. Really nice job, guys. Reluctantly putting a lot back now.

    Try to shoot as many Brains as possible before they get off a shot. If they do shoot, keep moving and fire back at their homing missiles to destroy the missiles themselves. That's the only way that I've found to do it. These are the hardest baddies in the game. I'm glad they only show up every fifth wave.
