Re: ABUG SOUTH 18 to 20 January 2019 (Hampshire) BOOKING THREAD

Sadly, I don't think I'll be there today, as I'd planned. If I can get away I will, if not I'll see you all tomorrow morning!

And a bug ... I collected all the dots but somehow the last square didn't fill, so I couldn't complete the level.

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - Champ - Crazy Painter

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

There are 6 levels ... I originally wrote 5 by mistake. For my last score, I think I got to level 3, second time around. I'm following the same strategy as you, but I'll try to use boulders as much as I can. I just noticed a bug in the gane. There were only the 2 green monsters left on level 1, I dr...

You may have, I just remember playing it somewhere along the line. I may have been testing out games for choice so don't despair. It's a great game that I suck at but it is fun. Yes, this isn't a bad one ... Only 5 6 levels though, and not sure if the difficulty increases when you go back to level ...

Ooh, I hoped I'd chose something we haven't played in the competition before. I used to like this game BITD. It's a bit annoying how the dragon's flames pass through the earth though, watch out for that... 23,120.
