Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R6 - Felix Meets the Evil Weevils

Does anyone know how to use the Emergency Panic on BeebEm?
The instructions say "Caps Lock", but it doesn't seem to work, and re-mapping Sh. lock doesn't seem to work either :/

OK That's more like it! 3100...

I can't get the hang of the "Cosmic Camouflage" ... OK I get that the baddies can't home in on you, which is a good thing, but rendering yourself invisible makes it pretty hard to avoid a collision!

I think the flags just show you what cave you've reached.

Re: High score challenge rules discussion.

Usually, deliberately killing yourself in order to be able to re-do a high scoring section is frowned upon and against the rules. There might have been a case to make an exception for Manic Miner, though. Adding kong to the game and giving you 2000 points for toppling him (at the exchange of a life...

Re: High score challenge rules discussion.

In the current game (Star Wars) the game lets you choose your own keys. For manic miner, trading lives for points on the kong level seemed to me to be a fair trade off, because playing on with a single life makes it a lot harder on the later levels - one false move and it's game over. For other game...

I don't know, but ohh what a lovely game this is!

Reminds me of Sokoban puzzles a bit.

How many levels are there? I'm up to level 26 and my brain hurts!!!

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R3 - Star Wars

So nobody else is having issues with this game freezing or doing weird stuff like the previous screen? Really? Or is there a bug that's known about by everyone but me.... hmmmmmm. Nothing that bad, but I do occasionally have an "impossible" trench to navigate, with lines going everywhere....

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R3 - Star Wars

As far as I can tell you get a bonus of 5000 per shield point you have left at the end of each wave.

No 25000 points as far as I can see.

I'm trying to see if you get the 50000 for destroying all the towers in the second sequence of wave 3... closest I've been is 1 away :/

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R2 - Manic Miner

Kicking myself here because I mistimed the final drop TWICE in a row. But... score! This confirms for me it's the right decision to ban the kong exploit. Would it be fair for someone who only made it to level 8 to finish above you simply because they gave up playing the game and took a possible 100...
