    How would people feel about a real arcade game...emulated via MAME, for example?  Those games would be really good for a challenge, since they are designed to end quickly and for high scores.

    I'll be down for pretty much anything. If I don't own it I'll try to emulate it. Never tried lynx or jag emulation . How hard is it?

    Hypothetical question: If we were to do Defender 2000 on the Jag how many of you would be able to participate? The biggest factor I take into consideration when coming up with Squad Challenges is how accessible any given game is to everybody in the forums who wants to play. Is this game something more people in the forums can participate in than not? Will this kill participation in High Score Squad? If I were living in dreamland I'd be running TG16, Lynx and Jaguar Squad Challenges all day long but I feel like I'd be the only one playing them. It's challenging to find the right balance.
    Everybody contributing ideas and stepping up with what they want to see is super helpful. Thanks guys!

    Maybe some Genesis titles.
    Dragons Fury and Dragons Revenge are great Pinball games. Space Invaders 91 would be great!!!!
    But anything else on the Genesis that is high score based would be great.

    Atarileaf got a reaction from Atari Creep in Collectorvision Phoenix Pre-orders now available.   
    I didn't see a thread for the Phoenix so I hope it's ok I start one here. As many of you may know the Phoenix failed to reach its kickstarter goal but it still did well and received a lot of backers. In spite of the kickstarter failure the Phoenix will rise from the ashes (bad pun intended) and direct pre-orders are available. I'll be ordering one, this system seems fantastic and more cores can be added down the road. Having 2600 compatibility out of the box put me from undecided to definite. Here's the preorder link:

    No you do not! 
     
    I have not played yet, but I have some tips to help.  The way to higher scores is to get 4 lines to clear at once (or 3 or 2).  Don't do 1 line unless absolutely necessary.  Square blocks go all the way to the left.  Leave the right-most slot empty.  Build everything up...then when you get the long skinny piece, put it in the slot on the right!  BOOM!  If you do it right, you'll clear multiple lines. The key is using that long skinny piece correctly.  Remember that, it's the most important tip of them all. 
     
    I gathered this intel by watching a Tetris World Championship at PRGE last year.  It was incredible.  Those guys can play the game until the final level!  And oh man, it takes split-second timing once you get up there. 
     
    Once you see those kind of players in action, you realize you will never be that good.  But that's ok, the game is still incredibly fun.  And I learned a lot by watching them.

    Nah bro. It's not about that anyway. Normally in these I rank in the bottom 3 ALWAYS!!!! Mainly because I love playing games but I have never been a wiz at a lot of them. This game just so happens to be one I played a ridiculous amount and turns out I almost have what it takes to be decent at it. 
     
    I look at these challenges as more a personal challenge  an not so much against others. Sure it would be nice to be a leader but that is not going to happen for me with many games. I challenge myself to learn the game more and better my skills within it. If I improve over time then I met the challenge. Don't mean to preach!!!
