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.

Got a little bit further, the first level with the flying thing is pretty hard 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.

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...

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.
Yeah, I had this happen once, too.

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.

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R10 - Magic Mushrooms

I never had this BITD, but whenever I've tried it in an emulator before now I've given up in annoyance after about 30 seconds. So I've never given this a proper play before now. It's infuriating, but it does have its own kind of internal logic that kinda makes sense. I'm starting to see the appeal. ...

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R7 - Chuckie Egg 2009

Managed to get past level 18 this time, only losing one life on it! Level 18 is a walk in the park compared to level 20. Ugh! I had about 8 lives left, and lost them all. I had *one* opportunity to get to the top of the level, and I messed it up. I think this really is as good as it gets for me this...
