Oh yes. I never saw this back in the day, but played it for the first time last time it came up in the compo. Fantastic game.

Last time I got 194,675. Not quite there again yet, but I did get to the crazy octopus level again.

If I remember, I ended up with something like 134,000 or so.... well, it takes me a while to warm up as evidenced in this pathetic show of humility..... gee, I'm starting to sound like Richard.....

Great score JoolsH! I think I will struggle.. I read through the posts from 2014 when the game was last played and picked up some strategies, but progress is slow: 38,875

(The 3595 score was immensely satisfying. A real boost.)

Ok, starting to get back in the saddle again.... I forgot the sheer edginess of this game and the frantic pace one has to go to just survive some levels.

Took me countless goes, but I finally got back to the octopus level again. Didn't get past it, though (although I got close!)

Beat my score from last time:

Did pretty well this go - got past the octopus level, then there was another octopus level. I got past that too, and there was a level with two octopi on it :o - I didn't stand much of a chance there.

Superb game, and I only wish my tinnitus would allow me to play the thing longer, but the noise that Smiley makes when he appears is absolute purgatory. I suspect that alone has prevented me from spending more time on this one over the years.

Below are the screenshots from a concerted effort last Saturday morning. I'm reasonably competent until the shooting ghosty robots kick in at level 5, at which point the capitulation would rival the England cricket team's latest. Ah well.
