Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R4 - Starship Command

(Finally found the correct screenshot!)
Got to into the 4000's on command 1 with this one, then barely managed 80 on 2, got a few hundred each on 3 and 4 before getting slaughtered in seconds on command 5 with only 28 points.
Definately the best score I've ever had though (even BITD!).

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R4 - Starship Command

Theres definately a large element of luck involved with this.
Sometimes you get nothing but plasma bolts firing at you and other times they just seem to line up for you to shoot them.
Anyway...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R3 - Thrust

Managed to get through to level 6 on my first try!
Problem is, I don't think I ever completed level 6 BITD so I'm unlikely to now.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R1 - Ghouls

Theres a lot of luck needed with regard to where the ghosta appear at the start of each level.
Also, i wonder how many broken beebs and screens this game was responsible for?...

Plus 1 interface (or similar?)

So, now I have my Mega games cartridge, I need a Plus 1 interface to use it with.
Does anyone have a surplus of them? (Preferably at a reasonable price.)
Cheers!

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R9 - Impact!

Wow! Just played this just now, this evening when I was tired.
Utterly hopeless! Couldn't keep up with the ball at all.
Just a measley 81500 points.
Going to try again tomorrow morning first thing and see how much difference it makes...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R9 - Impact!

Couple of tips:
First job is to activate the magnet powerup. This enables you to aim the ball and also helps you collect other tokens.
After that, the extended bat helps as does the wrecking ball.
Those three powerups can be combined.

Oh boy this one is zippy, anyone know what star key (adjust position) does? It allows you to aim the ball before it launches.

Had to press ever key on the board to find it but finally found it.
Which key was it? I feel like I'm missing something here :lol:
Its the }] key next to the Enter key.
