I definitely agree that games are more fun when you have a score you are trying to beat (whether it is your own or someone else's)..

What magazine is that page from? I am guessing it isn't Odyssey Aventura, since it has an Intellivision game in it (Masters of the Universe).

I just posted a score of 14,650 for Frogger, which beats the score that was posted by killersquirel (an AtariAge member), but he is pledging to come back and destroy me.

I also uploaded a score of 48 for Mayhem last night.

The page is from a magazine called Video Disney, it was a publication with Disney comics, videogame, computers etc. Only 4 numbers was made. You can check one of these numbers here:

BTW.: If someone interested in "read" brazilian Odyssey Aventuras, all numbers are on the same site:

Outside of the highest scores in the VideopacNL league alone, you can also quickly view all of the top Odyssey 2/Videopac scores at this location:

Rafael has about half of the high scores on this page.

I posted a score for Q*Bert last night. I was greatly hindered by the logic of Level 3 (where you can undo your own work if you jump on it again). I've never progressed that far in any other version, so I was completely unprepared for the mental aspect of it.

I think I may need to map out some patterns for how to complete those pyramids. (Rafael has probably already got this figured out very well, based on his score!)

Q*bert is also very hard for me. I couldn't achieve very high scores with it Sad
Also put up some Vectrex Highscores. Sorry, that I put in the wrong links for the pictures!

For Q*Bert I start to paint the 2 bottom pyramid lines. In the past the levels 3 and 4 drive me nuts, I used to hate Q*bert in past. Thereīs no way to map it, since the enemies you force you to change your path (and thatīs the charming of the classic games). So just to try to paint the bottom of pyramid as fast you can. Beware with the blocks where the enemies enter, in the case of Odyssey it will have at maximum 3 enemies on screen, so try to find the better chance to paint these blocks. Learn the enemies patterns and try to use the side discs only to scape for the serpent. The rest is many pratice. Wink

I've made a number of improvements to High Score recently.

Among them:

  • Avatar system is now native to the site. There are now a variety of default avatars that are assigned, most of which I believe you all will recognize.  Smiley
  • Direct uploading of photos to High Score is now supported instead of linking to photos hosted externally.
  • You now have a vanity URL for your public profile in the format of highscore.com/rafael
  • You can now set goals to beat specific scores on the site and win points when you accomplish your goals.
  • You now have levels that are based on the martial arts belt system (you start as a white belt), and you level up when you achieve enough points through winning trophies, voting, and accomplishing goals on the site.

I have many more enhancements planned for the near future, and I may be able to launch 1-2 more of them this weekend.
