Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

Much better score now, got to egg wave but never had a chance to start it as got grabbed by the firey hand thing and pulled in , so this score should of been a lot higher !

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Skirmish

Best score so far. Been ages since I played this, a great game but hard at times.

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Slightly better score, Yikes still proving hard, more luck than skill, don't see any really obvious patterns, shame as the other levels seem to be really easy,

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Followed by 5 more games straight after where I got to Yikes every time with all lives intact and got nowhere, think that's as far as i'm going to get with this game. There is a pattern to Yikes, once you see it, you can get through nearly every time..... don't give up yet Matt. Ed...... :-) I have...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Finally got through Yikes but only had 1 live left, luckily the next 2 screens were a doddle, and I went straight through them first try, then Johns Chin put an end to all of that !

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Very slight increase, I have now sussed Level 2 out and can do that easily every time now, level 3 never been a problem, but Yikes is still getting me every time !

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

New high score at last, really don'tk know why the bottom left hand part of level 2 is causing me so much grief, it shoudn't be that hard ! That bit's a bit of a pig, but if you do the first bit of the level fast enough, it becomes easy. Got to that level, the third time around. 169,220 Thanks for ...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

New high score, starting to get the hang of Level 2 now, but "'Yikes' doesn't seem as easy to cross those platforms as they do on Vindaloo. maybe it's just me !

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Was hoping this one would come up, not played it for absolutely years, very similar to Vindaloo. Best score so far, but who is Dominic and why is he a wally?

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R8 - Pipemania

Best score so far, never massively keen on this game, it's OK, but gets a bit boring after a while, especially with just 1 life. The RISC OS version is worth a go.

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R7 - Bumble Bee

After what felt like 100s of games, I finally beat my high score, I also got to the second carrot level, game over straight away. Found no issues with controlling the bee, was able to move easily and get out of tight spots with no problems at all, control very responsive, and moved to where I wanted...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R7 - Bumble Bee

Same here, had no issues with control during this game, just hold down the key for the direction you are heading, no need for keyboard tapping.

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R7 - Bumble Bee

Remember this one well from my Electron days, not sure if I ever got it on the BBC or not, if it was on Micro Power Magic then I had it.
