Canyon Bomber Champion

Just returned from Grinkfest 6. Was a great weekend and the highlight was when my son Luke got the high score on Canyon Bomber with about 3 hours left in the tournament. There's a couple of things that make this especially cool. First is the fact that he had never played this game before. Unlike my Solar Quest high score, he didn't have any advantage by having more experience than anyone else.


He was the only one to actually clear a level. And he did it twice.


And the best part, the score he beat was cheated. Was really cool to see all the congrats he got for taking down the score everyone knew was bogus.

    i love those old games. I often find myself thinking of early 80s as the original games, but then games like this feel like some pre-videogame world attempt at video games. They're fun to play, but then even when you get bored the boredom itself helps you appreciate just what made space invaders and asteroids so amazing for their time.

    So many players had 1 or 2 left and couldn't do it, then Luke steps up and showed us how it's done.
