This never happens when the game is freshly loaded so I believe something is overwriting the draw area somehow or there is simply a bug.

I've just seen this same thing happen on a real Beeb, so it's not an emulation issue. It only happens after you've played 4 or 5 games. I guess it's a bug in the game...

Thanks Chrisn, I was wondering about that too and also my sanity condition.

I agree, it's probably a bug in the game, too bad..... it's a pretty good game....

Now, can you share any secrets to getting a high score in this game? I suspect one has to become really good at traversing the tunnels and also getting all the towers to achieve what you've achieved.

Can you shed some light on 'using the force' in regards to the tunnels as noone else seems able to get the 25k for that?

Thanks bud,

Ed...... :-)

Ah, ok! I found that you don't get 25000 for using the force. The most I've noticed I got is 5000, but it doesn't flash up in blue like the other scores when you get it.

My tips:

In general, it's important to preserve your shields as each hit you take deducts 5000 from the bonus when you destroy the Death Star.

On the Tie fighter level, shoot Darth Vader's Tie fighter as much as possible. You score 2000 per hit and he's indestructible.

On the trench level the way to get the "use the force" bonus is to navigate through without shooting at anything, and only fire when you get to the very end.

On the tower level, you get an increasing bonus score for each tower, so hit as many as possible.

I think I managed such a high score by getting the 50000 tower bonus (maybe more than once, I'm not sure), as well as getting the maximum 30000 + 5000 bonus on the trench level a few times.

Thanks Chrisn,

So if I understand the 25000 bonus, you CAN get it if you don't shoot until you go through the vent? Would that be every level of the tunnel because I've done that or so I thought and still haven't gotten 25000 except if I get all my shields counted toward the score.

Also, here's a better picture of the abnormal catwalks....

This shows the abnormal catwalks a bit better.

I've only ever got 5000 for not firing until reaching the vent. The 25000 may be possible but I haven't managed it. The 5000 is awarded before the shield bonus appears.
