Squad Challenge - Barnstorming (Atari 2600)

Recommended Posts

Well, here's my first try (via emulation on the Portable). My first time playing this game ever. Tricky too, because of those pesky birds. I might give it a try on the PC later to see how I do on there (I'd try on the actual 2600, but I need a new coax adapter, so that's not an option right now).

:pole_position_blimp_big: Congratulations Kid A!


WOOSH!! Congratulations to Kid A on another win! This is the second High Score Squad Challenge win in a row for Kid A. Way to go! It's always a thrill getting to play another Activision classic for the 2600. Barnstorming was a fun distraction during the holidays and as we wrapped up our year, it was great to see everyone turn out for Barnstorming and to watch everybody's game improve in the thread. Kid A won the Squad Challenge with a score of 1:13.19 and chas10e was right on his tail at 1:13.74. Congrats to everyone who played! kamakazi20012, RickR, nosweargamer, TrekMD, Atari Creep, and atarifan95 all challenged us with their best! All of you showed how it was done, a huge congratulations to everybody who turned out for this Squad Challenge and posting absolutely incredible scores! I'd encourage Kid A to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and maybe this Challenge can continue on! 

2019 will be changing it up in High Score Squad with new challenges for Lynx, SNES, Genesis, Master System, Atari ST, Jaguar, TurboGrafx-16, Intellivision, ColecoVision, and much much more, in addition to the usual lineup of video game systems. We may even have an Arcade challenge! Be ready to play all of these game systems, we'll be breaking new ground with more interesting Squad Challenges coming up very soon and throughout the year, and we hope to see you there. Way to go everybody!
