Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R7 - Phoenix

This is from the new version, got to the third time round. This version seems a fair bit easier than the other one, unless that's my imagination.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R6 - Spooks and Spiders

Interesting game, I'm not sure if I like it or not. I can live with the lefty controls, but the collision detection is less than perfect and the game feels a little random at times. Still, kinda fun.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R5 - Missile Base

Never played this one before. Yeah, the keyboard controls are abysmal, I can't get on with them at all. Fortunately, I have a pair of BBC analogue joysticks that I found in a charity shop about 10 or 15 years ago (see pic), so I can run it on real hardware as it should be played. They really transfo...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R3 - Boffin

This game is utterly brutal. Good thing you get so many extra lives, you really need them.

Finally worked out level 11, I have no idea about level 12 though.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R3 - Boffin

Here we go for starters. Not played this for more than about 20 seconds before (seemed a little irritating when I last played it), perhaps it will grow on me this time.

Nooooo! I was having a fantastic game... completely in the zone, got to level 8, score of about 19,800, beating my scores from the last two times we played this. Game over, I do alt-enter to put it back in windowed mode for a screenshot, and the whole PC locks up solid :( Sigh. I'll have to have ano...

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R2 - Arcadians

Our third time playing this one - it is a classic, though; and I won it last time so I'm not complaining :)

Still got a bit of a way to go to reach my previous score:

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R1 - Donkey Kong Jr.

Almost forgot about this. Not played this version before... a pretty good conversion of an arcade game I never particularly liked in the first place.

Token last-minute effort:

I was going to go just for today, but I'm still recovering from the epic cold from hell, so I need some rest. Maybe next time...

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

Got to level 6, finally! The even numbered levels score a lot more points, and I managed to almost complete level 6, so that helped my score a lot.
