I got to the 100,000 milestone :D The ghost behaviour changes somewhere around the second grapes level, where they come for you much more directly. Not sure I'm going to beat this score ... 100,120.

This is a nice game, another pretty good Beeb arcade conversion. I think I got one bonus out of two, haven't figured out the pattern yet. Is it the same for each bonus round? Best so far... 22,290
