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 67th Squad Challenge, the 2019 Pole Position II Grand Prix! This will be our second Pole Position II Grand Prix Event! This year the Grand Prix will be a little different: This year's challenge will only be for half a month and we will only be racing the FUJI Track in an attempt to achieve your best high score! Last year the Grand Prix lasted for the entire month and we raced all four tracks for the best lap time. This year we are keeping things simple: We are racing for the best possible score on the FUJI Track. Pole Position is one of the most iconic arcade games released by Atari and was genre-defining for its time, setting a new standard of what racing gameplay could be like. Pole Position II of course was the pack-in title for the Atari 7800, and is often remembered as the first game 7800 owners played on their new game system. I have so many wonderful memories of playing Pole Position at Chuck E. Cheese's with my family, shifting gears and whipping around corners with a cheese stick in my hand and a cup of root beer on the floor under my feet. Pole Position II was also one of my favorite games to play at home and a wonderful memory on the Atari 7800. ROM and Instruction Manual are provided below. Good luck to everyone playing! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be for Sega Genesis. Be there! Pole_Position_II.a78 Pole_Position_II.pdf
  3. Congratulations btbfilms76! Congratulations @btbfilms76 on your high score! I hope you guys enjoyed checking out Ninja Spirit on TurboGrafx-16! How does this ninja game compare with Shinobi on Sega MasterSystem? @Atari Creep and @atarilbc likened Ninja Spirit to a shmup, I've never thought of it that way but that's a great point. There's a ton of action and a ton moving around the screen at the same time, especially once you get some powerups and body doubles. You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging Single Life Run. @btbfilms76 topped out at 264,200, I came in 2nd with 244,800, @Control Issues had 156,700, @atarilbc with 128,900, @RickR with 105,500, and @Atari Creep rounds things out with 104,500. Congrats to everyone who played! I'd like to encourage @btbfilms76 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 Atari 7800! NINJA SPIRIT SINGLE LIFE RUN FINAL STANDINGS 1 BTBFILMS76 264,200 2 JUSTIN 244,800 3 CONTROL ISSUES 156,700 4 ATARILBC 128,900 5 RICKR 105,500 6 ATARI CREEP 104,500
  4. I'm glad you liked it @RickR! It's a fantastic game, and another example of the kind of fun games they had on TurboGrafx that were unfortunately overlooked at the time. So glad you were able to join in on this and try this game out!
  5. I should've responded to this sooner. Some TG games can be very quick with displaying the score. On this one, if you miss it, just give it a minute for the game to end again and it will still display your high score as long as you don't power down the console.
  6. Hey guys, glad to see so much participation in a TurboGrafx challenge! This is a really great game and I was hoping you guys would like it. I spent hours playing and this is the best I could do. I've been meaning to do a livestream but it didn't work out. I may go back and play this game live on Instagram and YouTube later in the week. My High Score: 244,800 Played the real game on real hardware using real Duo Pad controllers
  7. I've never had that happen to me before. I would have addressed it sooner had I seen it. Thanks guys.
  8. Yes, this was what was happening when the top image on the main page of the site had disappeared. The top image carousel was not appearing and some people were receiving strange messages about updating Adobe Flash (which we don't use on the home page, I made a conscious effort to not use Flash anything when building this version of the site in 2014). I thought this was all part of one problem that had been resolved. Now it appears it's possibly two different problems. Thanks guys.

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
  11. 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! ULTIMATE YARS FINAL STANDINGS 1 RICKR 216,578 2 GREENWEEN 212,454 3 ATARILBC 109,885 4 TREKMD 67,007 5 KAMAKAZI20012 49,420 6 ATARI CREEP 37,092
  12. 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.
  13. Congratulations atarilbc! Congratulations @atarilbc on a most excellent high score! Did you guys enjoy Robotron on the 7800? I'd like to offer @RetroGameBoyz a very special welcome to the forums! The new dual-pad Atari 2600/7800 controller is a great new addition to the platform! You guys posted some seriously impressive scores on a very challenging game. All of you give yourself a pat on the back, I hope you all had fun with this one! Congrats to everyone who played! I'd like to encourage atarilbc 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!

  14. I had reports of this about a month ago from another member. Asking to "update Adobe Flash" etc. I thought we had this sorted out, I'll have to reexamine the issue which I believed to be a conflict in Wordpress. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
  15. Hehe that was an inside joke, he was the head of the department I believe 😂
