Yes, you should start PLAYING your old games, remember Armor Battle on the Intellivison Wink

Sixhundredsomething on the emulator right now. I have no clue how I managed to score 9979 points on 19th February 1985, and how long I played for that ...

A nice and unusual game for the Videopac btw. We liked it very much back then. The scrolling was somewhat strange and we didn't expect that, knowing the scrolling arcade games back then, but we counted it still as "scrolling", and played it quite a lot, because in fact it WAS Super Cobra Wink

Edit: 843 now Smiley

dam you ... now I had to play again ...

1292

its actually pretty easy to rack up score: when the flying ufo's come just shot and slowly progress from left to right ... before leaving the screen crush into the bottom and you will start left again and can collect more points :-)

Just gave this a go, I got a shockingly poor 119 and didn't progress past the first mile! Since there are 13 miles I'm really going to have to do better with this one.

hm .... how did you get 119 points in the first mile Huh? (1 mile = 1 screen ...)

btw: anyone got an idea how to pick up the $ sign in the last mile (its supposed to be worth 100 points :-) )

EDIT: I just figured it out ... go only down as far as the plate on top of the $ sign, then you can pick it up and move it to the right screenborder ... and then it starts from the beginning :-(

Oh really! In that case I think I get about 6 or 7 miles. I assumed there would be some new enemy or something every mile, I guess not.

no, every screen is one mile ... I actually read the manual today to find that out :-)

btw: once you finish the 13 miles you start again but have one drop-bomb less every screen ...

Hi! Super Cobra high scores? Great game!
A friend of mine got the high score 13387 on the 20th June 1985. We wrote our high scores on the rear of each cartridges. Now he does not play anymore.

577.
The G7400 is still loaded with the game, so I'll probably have to give it another try these days. I remember that my brother and me had incredible scores in that game, but I'll never be as good in this game again.

I'll be on vacation, or "Holiday" as my mates on the otherside of the pond call it, so you'll get to enjoy trying to get the high score on Super Cobra a little longer than a typical game of the month.  I'll update the July game of the month when I return.
