Well, it seems like my Beeb-Em has corruption in this game too. Anyone else seeing this?

But the good news is I'm in the game......who knew?

Edit: One more added......left the old one to show the corruption.

Made it to the blue cave, anyone got tips on what the flags mean? Not that I've got time to look, just interested if they help the score in any way.

Score: 2250

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

I think this game is going to lose it's appeal once you have completed it the first time. After the first round it goes into turbo fast mode which to me, even with full lives seemed impossible to maneuver.

However having said that, I'll post this and probably leave it for a while.

I did manage to get to the second round again but with a slightly lesser score but..... I was able to jump over a few of the potholes before succumbing to ineptitude.

Once you get past the mystique of how the game works it's not as difficult as I first thought. Sometimes you get a good round where everything works perfectly, that's kind of what has happened to me. Also that round that is lightening fast to start the 2nd time through isn't that tough after all. It also returns to normal speed after that round though they are harder with little 'traps' for the unwary.

There is something hypnotic about playing this game. At first it was annoying and now it's just a drug.
