Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R10 - Battle Tank

Got to love that buttery smooth 3FPS action, wow :lol: I got a score of 9,120 at normal speed. It's like walking through treacle, though. I don't think I've got the patience to have another go. I also tried it in the emulator at 400% speed. It vastly improves the game, turning it into a pretty enjoy...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R9 - Spy Hunter

Ohh, didn't realise you can drive your boat over the shallow bits and stay on that stage forever. Makes the game a bit boring, though.

Neat game, but not sure that it works as a whole that well.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

Still stuck on level 2, but I broke the 10k and squeezed a few more points out of it.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

Maybe it was a few more games than that, I lost count :)

Can't beat my previous score, although I did get to 9,800 again. I think I've had it with this one, it's just too random and frustrating. Might come back to it later.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R8 - Sorcery

Interesting game, a new one on me... some elements of Popeye / Boxer, and also Dig Dug / The Mine. Fun, but frustratingly random as other people have pointed out. Took about a dozen games before I even got to the second level.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R6 - Wet Zone

I had this back in the day on the Electron, but I never played it much. Probably 'cos it was so damn hard.

I'm enjoying it a bit more now, though. Got to level 6 here.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R5 - 2048

Looking at Klintworth's screenshots, it's kinda funny that a game released in 2014 has Master compatibility issues :)

It's a pretty fun game. Here's a starter score.

Damn, so close to fwibbler's score. Got to command 7 here, annoyingly I had enough points to get through to the next command, but there were ships all around me so I couldn't safely eject without risking a collision, and ended up with my ship exploding :( Need to remember to eject a bit earlier on t...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R4 - Starship Command

I'm going to have to disagree with some of these hints and tips: Turn on velocity and rotation dampers by pressing f0 (f10 on beebem) and f0. This will return your ship to a straight heading and stationary when you release the controls. Moving forwards and turning costs energy. Wait for enemies to c...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R1 - Ghouls

Last minute entry! Forgot about this. Playing using a different monitor, it's way easier. I think the TV I was using before has ropey timing.

Only time for one game, though :(
