Impulse X appreciation thread.

Post by a31chris » Wed Sep 16, 2015 1:55 am

One of the last threads I made on JSII before it closed was an appreciation thread for Impulse X. And a month long appreciation window. Where those of us who bought it would try and focus some time each week to play it.

I am hereby restarting that. It's September 15th. I propose from now until the end of October we I-X owners try to spend a little time every week appreciating this game and seeing how far we can get.

Last time anyone posted a high score was 2013. Let's do something about that!!

How to buy:

Out of what practice I did have in this game. Only made 40k or so.

My strategy is to hell with advancing through the levels. I get the 'gun' powerup and just try to stay on one level and keep shooting the enemies. They are worth 500 points each.

On a sidenote my Jaguar CD player is having more and more difficulty reading burnt discs. I will have to get the motor and pickup replaced soon. I'll send it in to Onalak.

That's way better than I've done with it lol.
I found the controls were very sharp and couldn't control the paddle very well.
I'll dig it out and give it another spin to see if I can get anywhere close to your worst, let alone 50k. :lol:
