    Beamrider (Atari 2600) Highscore Challenge

    I dare you to beat my highscore on the 2600 game 'Beamrider' if you can please try to make a video response and reply to this video. Beamrider is a game by Activision and it has also been ported to other platforms like the Colecovision, Intellivision, Commodore 64. The scoring seems to be the same on the other platforms, yet the difficulty seems to be a little different so scores may not be comparable across the various systems. I will ask Interghost to put this Atari 2600 challenge video on his Retro Records blog. You can find that great initiative for competitive arcade high scores here: http://interghosthouse.blogspot.co.uk/
  2. I dare you to beat my highscore on the Intellivision game 'Beamrider' if you can please try to make a video response and reply to this video. Beamrider is a game by Activision and it has also been ported to other platforms like the Colecovision, Intellivision, Commodore 64. The scoring seems to be the same on the other platforms, yet the difficulty seems to be a little different so scores may not be comparable across the various systems. After playing the wickedly hard Atari 2600 version I tried the game on the Intellivision. It plays a little differently - may be down to the controller. It has a nice launch sequence and bonus counting screen. The patterns seem very similar with the bonuses and the levels being very similar. Yet the tempo/timing may be different. Not sure if the scores compare well between the systems. Hence these different versions. Beamrider is one of those games I have on many systems 🙂 Love to play the different versions actually. This one feels very nice. Recorded off the console with Archos 605 Media recorder - zoomed in slightly to accommodate the widescreen format but with the correct aspect ratio. If you do a video response real hardware or emulation is fine. I will ask Interghost to put this Intellivision challenge video on his Retro Records blog.

  3. After playing the wickedly hard Atari 2600 version and the Intellivision port I tried the game on the c64 which is the native platform I played this game on the first moment I laid eyes on it. For me this is the version I am best at - I use the Suzo Arcade Stick which is an excellent stick for this game on the C64. I dare you to beat my highscore on the C64 port of the game 'Beamrider' if you can please try to make a video response and reply to this video! Beamrider is a game by Activision and it has also been ported to other platforms like the Colecovision, Intellivision, Atari 8 bit, Commodore 64. The scoring seems to be the same on the other platforms, yet the difficulty seems to be a little different so scores may not be comparable across the various systems. Recorded off the computer through a composite video lead with Archos 605 Media recorder - zoomed in every so slightly to accommodate the widescreen format but with the correct aspect ratio.

    Mark Plays.... Beamrider (ZX Spectrum)

    Playing yet another port of this game - did a couple of other videos on the game on various other systems - but this is quite different from the rest in quite a few ways. Check out the video and see what I think of it and how I fared.
