Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

To be honest Barbarossa, Frenzy was what I would term a 'fair' game in that problems were caused by a person's own poor choices in the game. Kix is more random in it's play and a good score is more good luck than good management. The game had the potential to be great but it's got too many gotchas f...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

Finally broke 10k. It's only a matter of time to do that but it's very painful getting there, that's for sure. This game seems to be one that you want to play but it hurts to continue on. How much pain can you take?

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

The swirly things are a bit unpredicatble. They can be on the other side of the screen, suddenly change direction and speed and come for you. Its like they are a live. Although earlier I manage to go straight through the middle of one as I went parallel to the lines , was an accident, probably unre...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

Can't stop playing it like Frenzy. I'm sure if I'd played this instead of Frenzy when I was a lad I'd love it instead but I just can't help feeling cheated every time get caught. I can get a decent score then I'll have 3 games where I don't even get off the first level. Think I'm done for this roun...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

I'm going to make a ringing announcement. Frenzy was fair, this is not.... it's way too random for my liking. You can 'guess' the movement of the roving lines but it's only a guess and no idea of a pattern when they move. The can go any direction with no rhyme or reason. Ah well, 8 bit gaming at it'...

I am busy porting it so that I can give myself a head start, I will just ignore the fact it has finished. Well done all There's nothing wrong with putting the score up even though the competition is ended. It's encouraged in fact if you have a score, it just won't count any more in this HSC. Ed.......
