Goal- Any score received from wave 1 up to the end of Wave 100. (Meaning- The challenge has a finite ending at the completion of wave 100, but reaching wave 100 is not a requirement for submission.) Lives setting- Any from 3 up to 20 Difficulty setting- Any from 0 up to 5 Bonus Lives- Any from 20K up to 25K Romsets- At time of writing this track wolfMAME only allows 1982 Blue. Future versions will also have 1987 patched blue and 2015 Tie-Die, which will be acceptable for this challenge.
Footnotes: Robotron was designed by a group of programmers known for making VERY difficult games intended to quickly extract coins from the player's pocket. Stepping into the Robo-arena, all players experienced the sense of intimidation yet only a select few experienced the sweet taste of triumph. Robotron is like a dynamic version of chess which will will get the adrenaline flowing like very few games could back in the Golden Age arcade. Robo can be enjoyable for friendly competition at all levels of difficulty. This NOOB challenge will get the player started off on the right foot and maybe even help realize the true challenge is not against Robots....it is against yourself.
