Nice this "atari frogger"...
PMniac 18 May 2020 16:26
@ChaosFox did you really mean 28 for the Game 2 and not 18?
RetroDave82 20 May 2020 04:14
cool i never saw this one before
RetroDave82 20 May 2020 04:35
where is Hardcore Chicken 7? I done it and wondered why nothing popped
ChaosFox 20 May 2020 10:20
@PMniac No, I meant 28. There's a documented example of someone reaching 30 on Youtube and 28 is the score I managed to achieve. @Wendigo seems to have managed it on hardcore in any case.
ChaosFox 20 May 2020 10:22
@RetroDave82 It isn't possible to cross without stopping in every game, so I only created cheevos for the games in which I managed to confirm that it was possible. If you say that it is possible to do a non-stop crossing in Game 7, I'll look into it.
RetroDave82 20 May 2020 13:32
I actually did manage it twice on Game 7, and that was on my first or second go at the game. But it was tricky I basically spent the whole round trying to do that run
PMniac 21 May 2020 02:36
Mastered it, but barely ahahah
ChaosFox 21 May 2020 05:33
I'd be tempted to scale that one down but I'm relishing watching people squirm with that one :)
RetroDave82 23 May 2020 01:51
Points could have been higher in my opinion

Poor chickens, that highway have some serious speed traffic.

Dang! Seattle Chicken of 28 is nigh near impossible, but it is doable. Took me hours and split-second timing. The Seattle Super Chicken is necessary to get the regular Chicken... I had maybe 1 sec. left when I hit 28.
Aros2k 31 Aug 2023 11:53
Giving up on this set. Goals are insane. Look at how few have achieved them. This should be a subset as it's basically best player in the world quality scores. RA should be about adding fun and challenge to old games, not turning people off them. If I had reviewed this set before playing I would not have touched the game and am giving up after a short time as after getting 27 after loads of goes on board 2, it's just not going to be fun AT ALL doing that for all 8 modes.

STRONG RECOMMEND AVOID, TERRIBLE SET 0/5 (set, impossible to judge the game)
Aros2k 31 Aug 2023 11:56
There are achievements in this that give 3 points that should be 50 or 25 at the very minimum. This set should be about 500 points.
I know some people like this stuff on here but if you look at the popular sets it's ones that are fun and challenging but achievable for 5 to 10% on every achievement. That should be the rule and what is aimed for by the Devs here.
ssolle 25 Nov 2023 20:44
yes, the points should be higher. the game 2 goal should probably be lowered to 26 (that is much easier to achieve than 28). also, the difficulty of the achievements seems inconsistent, game 3 achievement is much easier than for game 2.

i think every game deserves achievements that fewer than 10% of players can achieve. but this is perhaps just a bit too difficult.
ssolle 25 Nov 2023 20:48
i also think aros2k is overreacting though.
ssolle 26 Nov 2023 20:31
i also wanna say that this game has the best sound design of any atari game up to this point. the traffic and car horns actually sound like what they are supposed to

Anyone having difficulty with the achievements Seattle Chicken and Seattle Super Chicken, the video below may help.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpYzDxPHiLY

Watching the video it seems easy, but keep in mind that at least in 2 moments (4th, 10th, 18th and 25th crossing in the video) it will be necessary to make a pixel perfect crossing, and in a game with fast dynamics like this it becomes even more difficult .

I think the achievement should be revised. 3 and 5 points are ridiculous given the difficulty in completing these achievements, they should be worth at least 25 points each. Even after watching the video and memorizing all the moves I had to do, I must have tried a few hundred times until I could barely do it.
ThiagoBFiorenza 18 May 2024 11:28
This Game 2 achievement is ridiculous!
All the others have a margin and until today, 28 was the maximum anyone could achieve.
I did a TAS here and I still didn't make it (I got 26 points).
Review now!
