Here's a starter score from me.
No, what I put up for a first score is truly a starter score.

This is a decent score, not that easily attainable but you're a pretty good gamer so.......

Anyway, this is a bit more fun than I thought it would be.

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R7 - Bubble Bobble

Another bit higher. So far (realizing that I've only played this a bit in the past) I'm a bit lost as to why some of these levels work the way they do. The first few seem logical then all of a sudden you go to some level by 'bypassing' other levels? Is that some kind of power up?

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R7 - Bubble Bobble

An absolutely low score to start. Not much of a target but just wanted to get something in.

I'm likely to be quite busy this week so not much play time.......

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

Wow! What happens if the score rolls over? I would say it's a moot point as I can't imagine the pain these 2 are going through to get those scores. Venger would have to play at least another hour to get to the roll over point and that would just be physically very difficult I would think. Getting t...

On Beeb-Em, your 'upgrade' also does the same thing as what Venger's does Tricky. Just confirming.

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

Hi Tricky, On Beeb-Em this morning I get the high pitched whine right after dying in the game on level 2. Now I've had this on level 1 as well. But it continues until I activate the next round of the game, for a new game. It stops after that. The pitch is variable. I think it depends when you die as...

Congrats KarateEd - I can only assume that people in BC, Canada have far more patience than they do 'round my neck of the woods!

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

Looks like the fire+bomb must not have made it into the main code base, but I did have it at one point! I think that the Compact version on joystick should do both as that only has one button by default (I should probably try to detect a second). I only have 8 bytes free, but will see if I can fit ...

There is no doubt we'll keep on playing this Tricky. Anything you can do to help us have a bug or 2 less will be much appreciated. As has been expressed, we've played many games that are so inferior to this one. You do put out quality games and we're happy if we can help you improve any particular g...

Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R6 - Scramble

So something I found out when using my 2 Voltmace joysticks with this game is that one fires the straight ahead rockets as well as controls ship movement and the other fires the bombs. Tricky, is there a fix for that? Also at the end of the game, sometimes I get this high pitched whine. I got it on ...
