We will try to set a high score for HERO! So fire up that helicopter and save some souls!
Entering the competition is easy, here is what you have to do: - Play the game and make a picture of your full screen when reaching a personal high score. - Make sure the high score is clear to see. - Enter the competition by posting your screen shot in this topic. - Be honest! We prefer you use original hardware and do not make use of cheats or save states. If original hardware isn’t possible, emulation is accepted. But again: be honest! - You can enter the competition right up till the last day, right up till midnight.
I will keep track of the rankings in this post: 1. 101.430 - dennis 2. 68.940 - davidmt 3. 57.095 - JohnnyMcGibbits 4. 50.729 - Ponder 5.
H.E.R.O. is such a great game! While most of my time has been spent on the Atari 2600 version, I feel the Commodore port looks better and plays exactly the same. If you have never tried this classic, this is a great opportunity to jump in.
I played on a Windows laptop running Cloantro Commodore Forever, using a Atari CX-40 joystick attached to a Stella USB adapter. I will start this out by posting my high score after spending some time with it last night. I could probably do better but it really gets challenging as you progress.

Great opening score! Enjoy your first place. (for now...)
The game does get challenging as you progress! I get nightmares from the sliding lava doors, later on in the game. There is a 50% chance a door like that kills me!
I agree, that this version looks way better than the atari 2600 version. If there are really people that have not played this game yet, give it a try. This is top 10 material. Great graphics, even better gameplay!
