Re: High Score Challenge S9 - RChamp - Boxer

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

Finally a reasonably respectable score, not massively keen on this game, and agree with the comments about the 'kix' thing being a bit random, sometimes it works in your favour other times it doesn't. The things going round the edges are a bit unfair too if you lose a life on a 'kix' when you are re...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R9 - Frenzy

Finally a better score, think that will be it now. Hey Matt, is that over 1 million? That's why I need people to post in text as well as show their picture of achievement. I've no way of know if this is over a million or in the thousands otherwise. Thanks, Ed...... :-) Sorry I missed your posting a...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R8 - Zenon

Just to get us started.... Does anyone know if this game ever resets to level 1 or are you stuck moving up levels without any options other than restarting the game by reset? 14,850 Ed...... :-) Zenon1.png No, you can't restart to Level 1 unless you re-load. That's how I managed to complete it year...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Managed to keep all my lives for a long time this time round, which helps you to rack up the points, got to the end, not much of an end but at least there is one (sort of) the game then restarts and gives you a new set of lives, the last level, scene 20 is very easy indeed. Think this is as far as i...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

New high score, if you can get to Level 6 without losing a life then the bonus goes up, and your score increases the longer you don't lose a life, managed to get onto level 6 then lost a life at the end of it. some of the levels after 5 and 6 are a lot easier I think.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Tip for scene 04 , run right straight away and you will always avoid the acid drop , haven't found a foolproof way of getting through scene 05 seems to be pot luck. Will try that out for scene 4, for scene 5 that first drip is a bit hit and miss, I usually take a couple of steps forward and then wa...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

New high score, managed to see scene 10 at last, if you do make it to scene 06 without losing a life it does significantly boost your score.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R7 - Creepy Cave

Managed an increase, up to scene 07 , the hardest bit I find is the blood drop right at the start of scene 05.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R6 - Beach Head

Managed to increase score, but can't see how I can get any more now, I got full score on the submarine section, unless you get loads of helicopters on the plane shooting section that would increase score.

Anyway thats me done, bring on the next round.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R6 - Beach Head

New high score, completed the game, so not really sure how I can get a better score really now. I thought it would loop and start again.

Managed to get to level 3 which looks even more like a Pacmania level.
