Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Best score yet, nice into the millions but don't think i will be troubling the 2 millions.

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Finally beat the million score at last, think there's a bit of a better score in there, but not much (maybe if Level 5 was removed it would be possible)!

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Bit of an improvement on my previous best score, managed to get to the end of the last level and it just starts again, a bit faster, bonus reset and more importantly full lives !! I lost all my lives on Level 5 second time around ! which doesn't come as a suprise - this is definitely the hardest par...

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

My best score so far got to scene 19/Level 1 , but ironically was a really bad game as lost 3 lives on about level 7 is a moment of madness, so potentially this score could of been a lot higher.

Re: High Score Challenge Season 15 - Rd 2 - Creepy Cave

Very slight improvement, can get to level 5 no lives lost every time, then it's pot luck if I get through it or not. definitely the hardest part of the game for me, get past that easily get to level 12-13 + each time.

First attempt at this one after many years. Nice little game, not sure why a ghost would need a front door key but there you go!

Re: Pacman from Tricky testing and games scores

Thanks, does a zoomed out Rally-X count? https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=21371 Looks good, keep them coming !! I also think that it would be again worth doing a high score challenge test run too, as it gives the game a lot of testing that it might not have had, especially as ...

Re: Pacman from Tricky testing and games scores

Thanks for all the comments on my score, I didn't actually think I would get the highest score as I was way off the pace of some of the other better scores, but I managed to find a way to get round the maze which worked perfectly pretty much every time, and enabled me to get the fruit bonuses at lea...

Still looking for this.
If you haven't already, it might be worth giving CJE Micros a call and ask them if they have any or know of anywhere worth trying, they do have a lot of stuff, not always listed certainly worth a try, other than that I can only suggest Ebay.

Re: Pacman from Tricky testing and games scores

To spice things up for the final 48hrs of the competition, I can confirm that the winner will receive (or at least, be offered) a physical copy of the game on 5.25" DFS disc (or 3.5" ADFS disc if that would be their preference!). Good luck! :) TS08-B5D_PacMan_Photo-Front+Floppy_50pc.jpg T...

Put me down for a copy of the BBC 5.25" disc please.

Will there be a ssd made available when we buy the physical copy as with previous releases?

Re: Pacman from Tricky testing and games scores

Very slight score improvement, but still nowhere near my best score previously, seems a lot harder and takes a lot longer to get these scores now too for some reason or it might just be me.

Re: Pacman from Tricky testing and games scores

Best score on this new version, for some reason, just can't get anywhere near the score I got on the other version, not even close, seem to be getting worse at the game, rather than better, took me about 10 games to get this score !
