TigerTails Gaming Streams: Space Invaders Score Challenge

As the studio rebuild continues, Xavier wants to try something different for the third Friday of a month – Gaming Challenges! If at first you don’t succeed, keep on trying until you either run out of time, or rage quit the stream while shouting unmentionable words in anger. The first challenge is a nice easy one to start the ball rolling. Get 10,000 points in Space Invaders on the Atari 2600. This is enough to reset the score counter (which can only display 4 digits). However, the game will be running on original hardware, with original controllers (yes, it was less than fun getting it working with the streaming setup) which add their own level of difficulty to the game. Will Xavier beat the challenge, or will he fail? Stay tuned to find out.

TigerTails Gaming plays Atari 2600 Classics

Join TK and Hedgie in the latest episode of Talks Over Things as they tackle 6 of the games TK grew up with when he was a young thing. The family console was the Atari VCS, aka the Atari 2600, and it’s where TK cut his gaming teeth. Hedgie, on the other hand, had no such childhood and therefore is coming into these games for the first time.

Together the duo tackle Space Invaders, Jungle Hunt, Yars’ Revenge, Super Breakout, Circus Atari, and finally Warlords.
