Well, if I don't appear in the high score for this game its not because I haven't tried, I just haven't scored enough to get into the high score table yet.
2550 is my best so far....

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R09 - Chip Buster

High Score Tables Updated for Season 14, 9th Round...... Well, I didn't like this game very much at first but once I started getting used to how to move and why and where to move it grew on me. I think it's got a brilliant idea couched in decent game play and.....we have a winner, MatthewThompson [...

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R09 - Chip Buster

If I could avoid bugs the score would have been much higher. I'd just gotten into a really big nest of broken tracks that would have boosted the score....

Actually don't worry about missing the previous score, i've just managed to beat it, think this is as far as I will get with this now, virtually impossible to do anything when the levels go invisible !

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R09 - Chip Buster

I've played it just enough to know how to get to each area but not always knowing where a certain area is. So, you have helped solve that problem with this diagram. Looks like it came out of the service manual, is that correct? I'd been searching for something on and off for a few days and found it...

Rough layout, haven't checked if it's accurate or helpful... BBC_Micro_Motherboad_Layout.jpg This should actually help a lot of people more than my picture earlier on in this thread.

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R09 - Chip Buster

Had another go this morning. By the way, thanks for the link to the BBC motherboard thingy Ed. Still about as clear as mud :lol: I guess since you don't have a Beeb it is more difficult. I've got a sense of where the different areas are when they go bust. There's maybe 2 that I can't get to because...

Re: High Score Challenge S14 - R09 - Chip Buster

I think it would have been nice if after the Beeb blows up that there was a status report on what caused the malfunction. I think this is a great educational tool-type game.
