Slightest of upgrades in score.....

Interestingly, the one with SLOW behind it, my emulator slowed down quite a bit for this one so I played it but of course won't use that as a score. I must suck at this one to get that low a score on really slow speed (about 1/2 I figure).

Ha!!! Beat my 'SLOW' score. Maybe I don't quite suck at this yet. On real hardware, again much better than the emulator.

This game is brutal, might have to dig out a beeb as I can't get past 4ishk... :shock:

Only thing is all my beebs have been in a box for a long time, how much for a retroclinic upgrade from Australia?

First score, on probably the first game I ever played on Acorn hardware ( if it wasn't then it was 2nd or 3rd)

Sooooo.... back on Wednesday of last week I cranked up the Beeb again whilst I had the evening to myself and loaded up an old favourite in Arcadians for the High Score Challenge, and did this...

...which might well have won me this leg of the tournament, had I not forgotten about it until this morning. AAARRRRRGGHHH(cadians).

Oh well, just as well I didn't have a title bid resting on it. Can we do this game again in another series? :-D
