Scores must be achieved between August 15th through August 31st, 2022. Screen captures are not allowed as they are more easily manipulated for falsified scores. Multiple submissions are permitted.

Anyone can join in. All players are welcome!

 

Play Rules

Games may be played on real hardware, Flashback / Mini console, or emulation, using any controller or keyboard, following all rules and game settings defined in the challenge. Choosing between real hardware or emulation, and choosing which controller to play on is part of formulating your strategy. Enhancements, rewinds and hacked versions of this game are not allowed.

 

Difficulty Level

We are playing Keystone Kapers using the default settings as there are no difficulty settings to select from.

 

Fair Play

Your integrity is everything. Players should play fairly, be honest, and have fun! Falsified scores will result in your immediate removal from the site. It goes without saying that we will not allow cheats, hacks, cartridge frying, enhancements, rewinds, deceitful photo manipulation, subterfuge, or any other unfair advantage. Everybody hates a cheater.

Please remember to TYPE OUT YOUR HIGH SCORE when posting to High Score Squad! We want to get your score right, and prevent mistakes. Scores can be blurry in photos, tricky on the eyes, or hidden deep within play-through videos. Claiming your score 100% prevents confusion.

I don't own this one oddly enough.  I'll see if I can snag up a copy otherwise I will emulate it somehow when I get home.  I'd use my cellphone but I don't particularly care for the touchscreen controls.

@Atari 5200 Guy You can emulate, or play online here: https://atarionline.org/atari-2600/keystone-kapers

It's tough game for me because of the focus needed.  Once you get to the higher levels, the objects really fly across the screen.  You have a split second to figure out what the obstacle is and then react.  I haven't figured out the secret to the dual bouncing balls yet.

This game is a fun one. I will probably give it a go but I won't expect to score much. It's about recalling what appears on each floor every screen; you can max out the game once you figure that out.

Remember my post above? Yeah, those were the days, huh? So...

293,600. I played on Stella 6.7 for Mac OS. I did record this run but I need to shrink the file size before uploading to YouTube.

One MAJOR tip that I learned from a TG post involves the elevator pattern which is tied to when you capture the crook. The best time to capture Harry Hooligan is when the elevator is on the 2nd floor or when it's ascending to the 3rd floor.
